Blue Indigo is an intimate yoga cottage downtown Siem Reap, only minutes away from the city center, but tucked in lush natural gardens. It was built from the ground up, with the vision to be a place to immerse yourself in wellness. In this bubble of peace, with four yoga shalas, a small dining area, and beautifully decorated wooden cottages, you will not feel the time pass.

Imagine entering this bubble and discovering a shaded shala, surrounded by lovely wooden cottages and an open kitchen.
People are meditating in the shala, while others are quietly enjoying custom-made tea and passion-fruit juice. Close your eyes and you only hear the wind in the trees, monks chanting in the distance, and birds chirping.
When your appetite wakes up, discover a choice of healthy fresh-made dishes with a Cambodian twist to stimulate your taste-buds and replenish yourself, the right way.

In this teacher training, there are three vegetarian homemade meals every day. All of the ingredients are carefully selected by the owner himself who visits local markets in the early morning hours to guarantee the quality and freshness. Sunday is a day off, so there will be no dinner provided and the students are encouraged to dine out. Vegan meals can be arranged upon request.
Meals are shared in a garden, friendly atmosphere, simplicity, and friendship. These are mainly Khmer dishes, vegetarian with seasonal fruits and vegetables (preferably organic), and occasionally tofu.
These meals are perfectly balanced. Breakfast is adapted to westerners and consists of a buffet, fresh detox and fruit juices, natural yoghurt, Cambodian honey, and different savory or sweet dishes, like carrots cake or soybeans based dishes.
Tea is specialty mixes of the house with flower aromas. Coffee, fresh lemon juice, passion fruit, grapefruit, and mangoes accompany a fruit platter for your meals. Salads of green mangoes, bananas, or flowers are offered very often. Grapefruit and papaya are used as the bases of detox meal.
During this teacher training, you can stroll the night market which is only seven minutes from the cottage. You can also go to a pub street, dine out in the restaurant, hang out in the nearby café, or have a delicious taste of fresh coconuts and ice cream.
