Hoop Dance and Yoga perfectly compliment each other enabling students to balance the Yin and Yang within their body and mind. Both Hoop Dance and Yoga enhance students creativity, concentration and co-ordination as well as bringing light, joy and community into their lives. Workshops and classes are available to yogis and hoopers of all levels from absolute beginners to more advanced practitioners.
This retreat is for anyone who want’s to bring lightness and laughter to their life. In this retreat, you will find a wonderful balance of yoga classes focused on both strengthening and stretching, opportunities to tune in to yourself and your surroundings through guided meditation, and playful hula hoop dance classes to energize and awaken.
Yoga classes will be led by Laura, taking a holistic, therapeutic approach to combine creative yin-yang and vinyasa yoga, pranayama, mantra and guided meditation. Through each themed class, we will take our practice to new levels to explore chakra balancing techniques, yoga mandala flow and to appreciate and embrace our inner Goddess.
Emma will be teaching some select classes focused on playful arm balances and inversions, accessible for all levels.
Hula Hoop classes will be designed for those new to hula hoop, but options will be provided for those more advanced hoopers. Hula-hoop dance consists of learning different tricks and ways to move with the hula-hoop, which can then be incorporated into dance. We will learn to use the hoop on different planes including body hooping (think shoulder and knee hooping), vertical plane, horizontal plane, isolations and tosses. Learning new tricks and putting them together requires a lot of focus, which is extremely meditative. It’s also good exercise, challenges your hand eye coordination and muscle memory and is a creative form of self-expression.
Our retreat will be held at the beautiful Vikasa Retreat and Spa in Koh Samui, Thailand. It is a purpose-built, beachside retreat with three wooden yoga salas, an infinity pool and organic cafe. With access to two stunningly beautiful beaches, it’s the perfect place to unwind, enjoy the natural surroundings and chill out.
The open-air, cliff-side Spa offers a range of services that will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed, specialising in authentic Thai massage, as well as offering Swedish and Indian styles. They use quality organic and locally manufactured products for their delicious scrubs, facials and skin treatments.
It’s easy to be healthy and feel the transformation at Vikasa Retreat when you nourish yourself with two healthy buffets every day. You will have an abundance of fresh local fruits and vegetables, amazing creative dishes and a selection of raw food to choose from. The healthy buffet at Vikasa Life Cafe is open every morning from 10am and evening from 7pm. Enjoy your meal on their beautiful terrace with a breathtaking view of the pristine ocean, or curl up in the sanctuary of the chill out lounge, dotted with comfy beanbags and familiar faces.
