KOH TAO Retreat

17th-27th August 2020

YOGA | DIVE | FITNESS

Following the success of our Bali 2019 retreat we are heading to South East Asia for the trip of a lifetime to the paradise island of Koh Tao. In a studio first, we will be combining yoga, scuba diving and wellness, for ten days of restoration and rejuvenation in the gulf of Thailand.

Thailand is known as ‘the land of smiles’, famous for the hospitality and warmth of it’s people. It is this warmth that has brought a number of our team back to Thailand time and time again, and why we have selected it as our destination retreat location for 2020.

This 10-day adventure will focus on building strength and creating space in our bodies through a combination of yoga, fitness and scuba diving. Throughout our stay there will be a carefully crafted schedule of classes, excursions, relaxation and free time to ensure that all our members get to experience the most that this magical island has to offer.

We are offering a range of scuba diving packages for members who are complete beginners through to certified divers with years of experience. If diving isn’t your thing then that’s no problem. We have organised snorkel excursions for those who want to interact with the incredible marine life surrounding Tao without opting for the fully immersive experience. All scuba diving is being co-ordinated by our in-house instructor Lex (PADI MSDT) who has extensive diving experience as well as having lived, worked and taught on Koh Tao. We will be partnering with the incredible team from Sairee Cottage PADI 5* Dive Centre for all our dive activities.

Prices from £1800 - £2600, depending on room occupancy and choice of scuba diving package. (Flights not included)

What Can You Expect On This Retreat?

• We have designed this retreat to offer you a holistic range of classes which will strengthen, tone and energise as well as bringing balance and restoration to your mind,
body and spirit. We are working closely with our local chefs to bring you the best and most nutritious and delicious Thai menu, ensuring that you will be well fuelled for our action-packed days.

• This is a yoga holiday retreat, so it will have a completely different vibe to our shorter European retreats. We still recommend that members remain alcohol free for the duration of the trip with drinks being available at the celebration meal on our final evening.

• Up to 6 hours of yoga/fitness per day. All sessions are optional, but we find you get so much more if you attend all the classes. Some are physical while others are based on meditation and relaxation. A full timetable will be sent with your pre-departure information pack.
