Learn Yoga at Asia's leading Center for Classical Yoga and Holistic Health on the stunning tropical island of Koh Samui.

Morning Yoga Sessions:

7:30 am - Meditation and Breathwork Practice for all levels
We follow a holistic approach to yoga, aiming to ground students properly and help them grow from there. We open the day up with a sitting (meditation) practice of contemplation coupled with dedicated breathwork practices. This is excellent to learn and take home, to be done anywhere and great to handle stress and improve health.

8 am - Morning asana class options. Depending on your level and amount of previous experience with yoga, we try to offer separate classes for different levels. This may vary depending on the numbers and the in-house program. For those newer to yoga there will either be a simple guided ashtanga based class, meaning the classical poses are taught and encouraged to be memorized, flowing from breath to breath. This is an excellent start to yoga and a real practice.

From here it is possible to leave with the basics of a practice, take it home with you and and continue it at another studio or be able to practice yourself while alone. From here it is easy to participate in the ashtanga self-practice classes, known as "mysore style". On some days, there may be a gentle class that includes some flow, some basic hatha asanas and some technique and detail. This can help you understand better and begin to learn more about the yoga practice.

The Ashtanga mysore style, in particular-is a very thorough approach to the practice of yoga. The sequence begins with basic postures, later opening up and revealing its depth as students continue to practice. The Mysore approach works with students individually, so that they progress according to their level. A beginner starts with only a few poses, gradually adding more and more as your practice develops and your proficiency and commitment evolve.

This ensures that the student is always challenged and growing while, at the same time, practicing at the level appropriate for you. To learn more about Ashtanga, Mysore style, and Yoga please visit these pages on our site describing them in more detail. For newcomers to the Ashtanga series, a minimum of one week's stay is recommended. Those with experience in practice can do shorter stays. The minimum stay is three days. All are encouraged to do longer stays, as the teaching can then fully sink in and practice can begin to reveal itself.

Afternoon Restorative Session:

5:00 pm - Restorative-Yin-Hatha Yoga with Breathwork class. These afternoon restorative classes alternate throughout the week on themes of gentle flow, yin, basic hatha and qigong. All involve a certain amount of breathwork practice. Gentle-flow yoga classes are light yet detailed and enjoyable. The classes are guided by the teacher, and students of any level can participate. They are perfect for those who want to take it easy in asana, but still be (mildly) challenged, or for those doing a detox program.

Yin Restorative yoga is a blissful, gentle, deeply healing and meditative practice. It is ideal for relieving stress and tension and works on the connective tissues and internal systems of the body. All asanas are seated or reclining and maintained for a few minutes, supported by props as need be. Hatha basics explore the fundamentals of Yoga. Asanas (postures) are held for longer time with attention to details of alignment and often with rest phases between postures. Basic inversion poses may be included.

Qigong happens when veteran yogini, Dorien, now in her 60s, is on site. She shares with you the basics of this Taoist practice that is both healing and energizing, involving soft whole body movements with synchronized breathing. All our other teachers are dedicated to the practice and life of yoga. Our intention is to offer a thorough, clean, and, of course, enjoyable approach to learning and practicing yoga.

Classes are typically conducted in our beachfront yoga shala facing the sea or in the main practice yoga shala.

Note: Saturdays are a rest day from the Ashtanga practice on these mornings will be a class devoted to chants, breath work and meditation.
