Depending on your chosen dates and what you would like to focus on, please choose between our Flexi-Date and Fixed-Date options.

All Inclusive Flexi Date Options (available throughout the year except for *peak season).

yoga-core-cycleYogaCoreCycle This is Samahita Retreat’s all-inclusive yoga and fitness holiday option, which includes accommodation, food, yoga, fitness-core and cardio, meditation and breath work. YogaCoreCycle divides the sessions into focused areas for body, breath, and mind.

– Dedicated Yoga sessions involve meditation and breath work followed by foundational and grounding yoga pose classes.

– Core combines functional fitness, core and strength work with TRXs, Bosus, stability balls, Uggis and more to work all muscle groups of the body in a unique fitness combo.

РOur dynamic Cycle classes combine fun, music and cardio in a high intensity sea-view work out.

The combined focus and effort serves to highlight mental and physical stability, strength training, balance, agility, weight loss and cardio in one fully integrated health and fitness program.

The best part Рit’s all open and optional. You can choose to take all of the classes, or select those that suit you depending on your time, interest and energy. All of our YogaCoreCycle classes have been designed to offer benefits whether taken individually or as part of the whole program.

If you would like to spend more time on your own yoga practice to take home, you can still take the guided self-practice option where the teachers teach you step-by-step through the poses of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, getting you to repeat and practice with confidence. The schedule is open enough to allow you to take the cycle class, breath and meditation and still put in full time on your yoga practice.

Each day we offer a 30-minute breath work class to get you connected to the breath as a meditation and foundation for all your practices. In the afternoons there are relaxing restorative yoga classes.

We recommend starting YogaCoreCycle on Saturday (Check in time is 2pm) as we plan the classes for the week. However, as a Flexi-Date Program, you can start these any day of the week.

YogaCoreCycle is our foundation Flexi-Date Program. If you would like to also enjoy the benefits of detox, weight loss, wellness spa or de-stress then by selecting one of those programs you are still able to attend all classes but with the added focus on diet and therapies.

What We Teach

Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation

Samahita Retreats and Programs are based upon a non-dogmatic approach to the rich tradition of yoga practices that we term Classical Yoga. Focusing on the Pranayama tradition from Sri O.P. Tiwari and Kaivalyadham and the beautiful yet thorough approach to yoga of Ashtanga Vinyasa as taught by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, guests are also invited to discover meditation technique and restorative yoga.

Visiting teachers from around the globe bring their own style of yoga and education to their retreats, which may have a different schedule and focus. All programs and retreats are tailored to suit every level of student whether brand new or seasoned yogi.

What Makes Samahita Unique? First Read This.

Our purpose is to help positively shape and affect your lives. We encourage engagement and participation in activities and practices.

We care about your well-being and know from experience and up-to-date scientific research that health, growth, and transformation cannot be served up with passive involvement but rather stimulated in you through mutual effort:  we provide a setting with infrastructure, a dedicated environment, a set of tools and techniques with instruction, a support structure through diet and relaxation, so you can step up and participate in your own transformation, growth, and opening.

By this very nature we are not a 5-star resort. We are a dedicated lifestyle-oriented retreat center. We want you to ‚Äúexperience the connection‚ÄĚ. And only you can do that but with the right support and environment.

From our beginnings as¬†the original ‘Yoga Thailand’, our center has grown and developed over the years and now encompasses a wellness center as well as its traditional yoga offerings.The name Samahita is translated from Sanskrit as centered or balanced. To find balance is key¬†in daily habits, in weight management, in dealing with stress. Samahita Retreats clear and dedicated purpose is ¬ėto provide both the tools to work on yourself through specific practices and dedicated programs as well as the environment within to learn, change and renew.

Samahita Retreat has a respected reputation in offering classical yoga practices and their philosophy through pranayama (breath), asana (body postures), vinyasa (breath and movement) and meditative techniques. Classical yoga embodies the wisdom of the Yoga Sutra and the practices of hatha, rooted in the original teachings but practical and accessible for a demanding life today.

We offer several Flexi-Date¬†Detox, Healthy Weight and De-Stress programs, for either the first timer stepping into healthy approaches or one already in yoga and health to take your practice a step further while transforming your body and mind. We, at Samahita Retreat, are committed to this life. We live it and we have many years’ experience. We know what it takes not just to help people relax but to reach a point of transformation.

Samahita Retreat¬†is located in the south of Koh Samui, right on the beach. It is in a quiet area off the beaten track, with plenty of privacy and comforts, yet still close to markets and amenities. The beach is virtually ours alone, many rooms in our yoga retreat have a direct sea view, while the surroundings are lush and green. Many of Koh Samui’s special attractions are down the south near us, waterfalls to temples and more. ¬†A walk down our beach brings you to the golden Laem Sor Pagoda of a realized Buddhist monk, whose force has drawn us to be established in this special spot. During the summer season¬†when the tide is lower there is still a channel where guests who enjoy the ocean can swim out to deeper water.

Samahita Retreat is home to¬†Centered Yoga¬†, a world leader in the field of yoga education and teacher training. Since its founding in 1999 we have been offering courses for professional yoga teachers, those aspiring to become teachers, and serious students seeking to go deeper in the practice. We have earned the reputation as Asia’s most respected and longest running Yoga Alliance Registered Program both at the 200 and 500 levels and one of a few so well established and experienced in the world.

All backgrounds of people join us here, whether yoga students, from beginners to advanced, those looking to lose weight and get healthy, regenerate from a stressful life to a holiday with all the healthy perks. It is the kind of wellness resort where someone traveling alone can meet people and feel at home, and where families can relax and enjoy themselves. (We offer many services for parents of young children, who might not have much time for their own time or yoga back home.) Discover delicious and healthy food and an atmosphere conducive to both restoration and growth in a true community where many friendships blossom. Even partners who don’t do yoga or wellness find our setup perfect for them while their other half gets on with the yoga and treatments! In short, all are welcome.

We cultivate a friendly, comfortable environment that allows guests to be social or private. More than just a spa resort, our excellent facilities allow guests the option to engage in a variety of practices and treatments during their stay. Our facilities include a yoga shala, a meditation garden, a wellness center (Spa) and treatment rooms, an herbal steam room, a saltwater swimming pool, a lounge, a restaurant that serves delicious vegetarian cuisine, a full juice bar, and a boutique. We encourage mindfulness by asking guests to clear their own plates after finishing meals and to share the space with guests who may be experiencing different programs, trainings or detox and wellness. During your stay at Samahita Retreat there may also be guests from other programs, retreats and trainings with whom you will be able to interact with during dining and relaxation periods.

We have made a strong commitment to keep eco-friendly standards. We use 100% natural non-bleach cotton sheets and towels,solar-powered hot water, mosquito screens for cross ventilation, energy-saving magnetic key card,low energy appliances, photo sensor light switches, low-flush water-saving toilet and bathroom fixtures, structured brick-work that minimizes both energy and sound loss, rainwater harvesting. We also grow fruit trees and a herb garden and have used bamboo wood flooring in the Yoga Shala, the most renewable of all woods. When possible we encourage the use of the fans and open breeze over the AC.

After a stay at Samahita Retreat, guests often go home with much more than just a great experience. They leave equipped with tools that allow them to integrate healthier choices into their lives.

We look forward to having you as a guest.
