Escape routine for a week of rejuvenating yoga at a stunning private beach resort on Koh Phangan, the jewel of the Gulf of Thailand. Be inspired by nature and discover new yoga approaches to transform your life.
The retreat will be held in Awe Resort. The property consists of four, 2-floor villas black-tiled infinity pool on a quiet, private beach. Each villa feature living rooms surrounded by splendid tropical gardens. The sleeping area is an undivided, open loft that spans the entire second floor.
Our signature program is designed to inject spirit back into life by using traditional Hatha yoga methods such as selected Shatkarmas to promote clarity and yoga Nidra to relax the mind. Physical asanas tailored to each individual, along with invigorating pranayamas, are explored in the morning with the rising sun.
Our retreat is small in number, with a maximum of 10 attendants, but big in potential. Expect to leave with practical tools to include in your personal yoga practice at home.
Peter committed to a regular yoga practice when he was a journalist based in Washington, DC, 13 years ago and found the courage to leave a highly stressful job in order to pursue a goal of total wellness, inside and out. Peter mostly lives in Thailand but makes regular visits to teach in Chicago, the Bay Area of San Francisco and Amsterdam.
The location of the retreat is at a quiet private beach resort location on the southern coast of Koh Phangan. It might not have the most wholesome reputation: A wild party every full moon thats been keeping people on the other side of sobriety for more than 20 years. Koh Phangan, a tropical island misunderstood by most, but loved by many. It is just 30 minutes away from the busy pace of Koh Samui, but it feels worlds apart.
Did you know that most of the island is a national park with good hikes and fantastic viewpoints? Triathlons and mountain bike races are a regular fixture. The diving is some of the best in the world and so are the spectacular sunsets on the islands many beaches. The charm is that it still feels like an undiscovered gem. Everyone is really laid back and friendly and there is always something to do: from world-class parties to postcard-perfect beaches. Come see for yourself!

The regions premiere boutique airline is Bangkok Airways. There are 20+ flights between Koh Samui and Bangkok everyday, as well as from Asian cities such as such as Hong Kong and Singapore.
Air Asia offers trip bookings through Koh Phangan that combines flight and ferry. The trip takes more than twice as long as Bangkok Airways, but it is a fraction of the cost as well.
Most long-haul bus journeys in Thailand are taken on air-conditioned tour coaches. They are the cheapest way to get around, but on longer journeys, they can become a bit tiresome. Nearly all long-haul bus journeys are made overnight when the traffic is at a minimum. All buses and trains stop in Suratthani town center, where you will be provided with a connecting bus to the ferry pier enabling you to continue your over-sea journey to Koh Phangan. Once you arrive at the pier, the ferry ride to Koh Phangan is about 2 and a half hours, but the scenery as you sail the Gulf of Thailand makes the trip goes by rather quickly. Bus tickets can be booked at any travel agents or TicketMajor outlets in most popular malls in Bangkok.
Koh Phangan is located in the Gulf of Thailand and has no airport. In order to arrive on the island, you will need to take a ship. Three major operators in the area are Lomprayah, Seatran Discovery and Raja Ferry. In general, you will not need to worry about booking these tickets in advance. However, we encourage a visit to their websites in order to get an idea of the schedules. Some smaller airlines are partnering with these ship companies for cheaper travel options than flying to Samui.
The State Railway of Thailand operates an efficient rail service down from Bangkok to Surratthani and up from Had Yai in the deep south of Thailand. Overnight sleeper trains are the best way to go, with clean and secure carriages, waiter service and clean, crisp bedding. Make sure you book the AC private cabin for privacy. You will want to take the train to Suratthani train station. If coming from Bangkok, plan on arriving at Suratthani no later than 05:30 in order to make the first morning ferry to Koh Phangan. Upon arrival at the train station, there will be a shared bus that will take you to the pier.
