Join Evolation Fitness on a journey to Cambodia! The retreat will be held in Siem Reap, one of the most historic cities in earth. This retreat will give you the opportunity to expand your yoga practice, explore Angkor Wat and surrounding areas through adventure-based activities, volunteer at rural schools with the Ponheary Ly Foundation and access local Cambodian culture in an intimate and enriching way.
The 28-room guesthouse is owned by Ponheary Ly and her family; natives of Siem Reap; and managed by Lori Carlson who hails from Austin, Texas. At the end of the Khmer Rouge era, the Lys had to rebuild their lives from less than scratch. Their guesthouse stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the power of family. Three generations (including the eight children you may see running around!) of friendly Lys live in the private residence with Lori living on-site as well. All will ensure that you are well cared for during your Seven Candles stay.

Will Schneider believes it’s important to live one’s life profoundly. He helps his students understand the benefits in seeing themselves accomplishing great things, experiencing new adventures, testing limits and knowing that through their willingness to let go and jump-in, they’re going to be at least wiser and at best, triumphant!
Living in New York City for the last 10 years, Will is a full-time 500-hour certified yoga teacher, having studied with Kelly Morris and the Conquering Lion TT Program and is owner / founder of Zaanti Private Yoga, LLC helping practitioners of all levels discover more of their potential. Will’s own adventures have traveled him through Nigeria, into the Serengeti, Mount Kilimanjaro and in April 2012, graduated a young Tanzanian man from Arusha College (TZ) who is now a primary school teacher in his own community.
