What WeÂ Teach
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?
From our beginnings asÂ 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 keyÂ in daily habits, in weight management, in dealing with stress. Samahita Retreats clear and dedicated purpose is Âto 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 personalized and guided 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 RetreatÂ 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 seasonÂ 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 toÂ Centered YogaÂ , 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.
