Learn to Heal Yourself...
Samhita Yoga Vacation Retreat with Victoria and Anat,
8-15 February 2020, Koh Samui, Thailand
WHY YOGA RETREAT?
Because the combination of daily yoga, sunshine, rest, delicious healthy food, good company and beautiful surroundings is a winner, trust us!! Daily yoga, when at home, will certainly enhance your physical and mental wellbeing, but there is the inevitable rush to get to work, or your next appointment, or a meeting straight afterwards…cutting short the small oasis of calm you’ve created. Holidays in the sun can be a wonderful, restful escape, but too much inactivity, good food and drinks in the sun can leave us feeling sluggish and in need of another break!
On a yoga retreat you get to relax, rest, enjoy peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings, eat sumptuous meals, go exploring, go to the beach…all the things you normally do on holiday but with the addition of daily yoga. Each morning begins with a yoga session which will calm your mind and energize your body, with no pressure to do anything else afterwards except sit down to an amazing breakfast which has been prepared for you. Afternoon we shall practice soft Pilates sessions, will enjoy guided meditation and enjoy yoga restorative.
A week of this will leave you feeling not only rested, but glowing, healthy and happy! Food will be vegetarian and made from the most delicious local produce – think fruits, veggies, local yogurt and milk…and more. Morning Yoga sessions and afternoon Pilates workshops will be held in the shalla accompanying an ocean sound – also with the same breathtaking views!! The rest of the time is free for you to do as you please – you can relax by the pool, relax on a private beach or explore the island.

Rona Ilan, Greece 2019
I participated in a yoga retreat led by Vicky in Greece, on May 2019. We were an intimate group of wonderful people, sharing five days together on a beautiful island, practicing yoga in sunrise and meditation in sun dawn every day, exploring the island, eating delicious Greek homemade meals and most importantly, zooming out of our hectic everyday lives and tuning in to our deeper wishes and desires.
With her unique relaxed and fun-loving approach, Vicky led this very personal retreat with a lot of sensitivity and knowledge, she was in every detail, and took this retreat also as part of her own personal development journey, and it really showed.
My take at the end of the retreat was that living a life you don't need a vacation from is my current goal. While working on that :) I'm waiting for my next retreat with Vicky, as I feel this is so much more than a vacation, this is a time to relax, smile, recharge, and practice the art of designing your daily life as a vacation.
Thank you Vicky :)
