koh samui RETREAT x Yoga Folks

Sawasdee gorgeous!


Join Yoga Folks on a DREAMY retreat on the lushious island Koh Samui! We have rented the amazeballs retreat space Vikasa, on the cliff side with the dolphins and whales as the only spectators. 

Spend your morning and evenings in our private yoga shala looking out over the ocean, high quality mats and props included, and then spend your days soaking the sun by the pool or on the sandy beach. Take a little stroll to find cozy restaurants or head to the Fisherman Village Market for souvenir shopping and great food. 

Or simply just stay at the place – brunch and dinner is INCLUDED (yep, yum!) and for the true bon vivants there’s the spa. Enjoy a rub, a scrub or a facial glam-up.

Come enjoy a week of restoring, rebuilding and reconnecting! We will swirl you through yoga classes, meditation sessions, dancing, sweating, reflections, discussions, laughters and tears. Have a grand time together with yourself, and with each other.
We start on the 5th of February at 16.00 local time, check in starts from 14.00.

WHAT A SPECTACULAR DAY LOOKS LIKE:

06:00-07:30 Sunrise swim or beach meditation (unless you rather sleep in a little, your choice!)
07:30-09:00 Morning yoga sequence – awake, alert and ready to kungfu-kick start the day
09:30-11:30 Breakfast brunch – fuel up with a delicious buffet of fruits, hot & cold beverages, breads and bowls.
Free time / activities – like splash in the pool, read a book, nap to a podcast in the shade, go for a hike, snorkle, get a massage – SKY’S THE LIMIT!
15:30-17:30 Afternoon session/workshop
17:30-19:00 Evening yoga class with long finishing rest / yoga nidra
19:00-20:30 A healthy dinner watching the sunset, laugh with some new found friends and have a cooling drink
21:00-21:30 ​Meditation or storytelling – something soothing to lullaby you into dream space (some of the evenings, other evenings we rather hang out and chat / play card / enjoy free time together )



YOUR TEACHERS

Viktor Öberg
This gorgeous yoga teacher is full of compassion and knowledge. Viktor loves to pump it up, mix the yoga practice with HIIT, to then finish off with guitar and singing. He’s been teaching for many years, and the classes he delivers are funky, fun and fierce. Expect new sequences, long restorative endings and amazing music.
