Join Sevanti for the inaugral retreat at the Vikasa Yoga Retreat Centre in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Sevanti has run over 100 Yoga retreats since 1998 and offers many of her holidays for both individuals and parent/s with children.

There will be a daily 2-hour Unity class before breakfast, a style which is flowing, organic and based around vibration, sensory awareness and breath. We move through asanas with awareness, focusing on spacious breathing and authentic movement, which is appropriate and liberating for each unique individual.

About the Unity Yoga & Partner Yoga Retreat

There will be some late afternoon workshops in Unity Partner Yoga™, which is a sacred dance of Unity Yoga with two or more people. It is deeply releasing, restorative, connecting and above all fun!

Sevanti will also offer workshops in Massage - Acupressure/Thai and/or Oil, plus some Meditative Movement and Dance. There will also be some night meditations and relaxing Yoga Nidra.

A Kids Club is offered so that the little ones can have their own fun! This is available during the early morning classes, plus some mid morning sessions while parents (and others!) can book a well needed massage at the Spa. There will also be opportunities for the children to attend during some afternoon/workshop times, however the children are warmly welcomed to join us for some particular workshops.

Sevanti's retreats are down to earth, relaxed and warm in her welcome and inclusivity. Participants are invited to do as much or as little as they like, gaining the necessary rest and quiet time alone if and when needed too. The sessions are sacred and deep, allowing each person to access the magnitude of peace and spaciousness within.

Those without children are equally welcomed and Sevanti ensures that there is plenty of quiet space and time available, as well as opportunities for group connection and plenty of lightness & laughter!

We shall also enjoy our time around the sessions, there are various wonderful places to visit - individually /as a group. Sevanti previously taught annual yoga holidays in Thailand for 10 consecutive years and has made many other visits to this beautiful country, so the land and the people have become very special to her over time.

She looks forward to sharing her love for Thailand on this retreat!'

The Yoga

The Yoga classes are for all levels of Yoga experience and will last for 2 hours.

Unity Yoga - Welcome the day with this 2-hour class before breakfast. Unity Hatha Yoga is flowing and restorative, taking you on a journey through asanas, breathing techniques and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). The class will begin with relaxation and meditation, with specific pranayama techniques to increase vitality, relax and clear the mind. We gently warm up the body and flow through a series of backward and forward bending, twisting and lateral movements, inversions, balances and standing poses.

Unity Partner Yoga™-In the week there will be the chance to experience a Unity Partner Yoga™! This is a fun way to connect; through joint asanas, meditation and relaxation practices we can access a sacred peace and stillness from the trust and support of another.

Yoga Nidra-On one evening at we will end the day with this deep relaxation.
