from Australia, July 2018

Instructors were extremely knowledgeable. Very helpful in improving my practice. The location is amazing. Sin (spelling?) was the most helpful and generous host throughout. Loved it and should have stayed longer.

Martin Spinelli

from Great Britain, July 2018

"Blissful and transformative"

Instructors Roni and Dmitri were so careful, patient and inspiring to me and my 16-year-old son (we were relative beginners). The Sound Journey that Dmitri and Roni conducted one evening was a rare and exceptionally moving experience which I was grateful to have had. The manager Sin was extremely friendly and accommodating--he organised our outings and made time to get to know us--another very good human being. Koh Yao Noi itself feels secluded and rural--rice paddies, water buffalo and shrimp fisherman. It is the ideal place to decompression and to find yourself.

"Great retreat "

The classes were suited to me as a beginner-intermediate. Breakfast was good. Nice quiet location and good ambience. Early morning tai chi on the beach. Thought both Antonella and Veerle great teachers but especially liked Veerle"'s style and focus on yoga rather than fitness.

I felt very relaxed and comfortable at Island Yoga. There was a positive energy all around. The yoga classes were invigorating and informative, leaving me feeling so full of life and wanting to continue in this way after the retreat.

"Exactly what the doctor ordered--"

The island itself, the quality of instructors, the Yoga Island staff, the Nature Lodge staff, the food, and the atmosphere were all perfect. I needed somewhere to hit the reset button on my life and get grounded and that's exactly what I got. I am so grateful for my time there.

Jennifer Harju

"Island pure nature yoga "

As práticas tanto iniciante quanto avançado foram otimas e os instrutores são excelentes. O tai chi no nascer do sol foi uma experiência repleta de energia. O restaurante tem comidas muito gostosas e arroz integral. O iogurte do café da manhã era delicioso. A convivência com outros praticantes foi enriquecedora e muito boa. Foram dias maravilhosos no island yoga.

"Beautiful Yogis w/ a side of Extortion "

The instructors were lovely. On several different occasions, they made me aware of things about my body that have forever improved my alignment and overall wellbeing. They were mindful, educated, peaceful, and kind hearted. They made my overall experience a positive amongst many negatives. The island !!! OMG, what a magical place. The locals are so so sweet. & of course, the immensely diverse attendees !

"Magical "

Island Yoga is truly a gem. Most accommodations on the island are right off the main road, but Island Yoga is tucked away off the beaten path, with its private, serene beach and lovely space. Ning and David were very knowledgeable and helpful in their own, individual and wonderful ways. Ning taught me how to ride a scooter and I had a blast exploring the island on my own. The ladies running the kitchen and laundry were all very sweet and attentive. Magda was a wonderful welcome hostess and meditation guide. All yoga teachers I came across were very knowledgeable, creative, and generous in their teaching. I especially enjoyed Aliya and Antonela's classes for their deeply meditative qualities and generous guidance. Morgan was also fantastic. Her class focused heavily on hip openers, which was incredibly challenging and restorative for my personal practice. I am deeply grateful for David's Tai Chi/Qi Gong teachings and all the conversations we shared on the island. Spending a week at Island Yoga was simply magical for me.

Emma Langton

from Thailand, April 2017

"Wonderful place!"

The yoga instructors were amazing and worked to teach according to all levels.

Each class taught me something new, either about yoga or myself, making the retreat a meaningful experience.

The morning Thai Chi was a new and fabulous experience. David was a great instructor!

The morning breakfast was amazing! So much choice and variety. You could also ask for something specific if you couldn't find something to your taste.

Awesome island so natural and local and peaceful,great size and safe to explore, many secluded beaches.

Yoga was fantastic, great teachers, so interesting and insightful and I tried the tai chi meditation at sunrise on the beach and loved it, great way to start the day.

Such a relaxing yet energetic few days on a really really friendly, chilled, laid back and professional yoga retreat, thank you so much island yoga

"Helemaal zen"

Prima yogalessen vol afwisseling. Mooie omgeving. Sobere maar doelmatige kamer. Zeer gastvrije mensen in het restaurant die met alles willen nelpen. Kreeg gratis een scooter mee om voetbal te kunnen kijken en men zocht voor me uit waar voetbal te zien was. Super!

"Excellent Stay at Island Yoga "

Had a wonderful and relaxing six days at Island Yoga on Koh Yao Noi. The female dorm room was clean and comfortable and as were the main facilities of the resort. Each yoga teacher was professional and brought something new to each class. I was never bored with any class because they were always different. Lovely morning tai chi on the beach at sunrise and the breakfast buffet has everything you need to energize after morning yoga. I highly recommend this retreat for anyone looking to expand their yoga knowledge and make some new friends along the way!

Nicole Gouveia

from Canada, July 2018

"Relaxing, Rejuvenating Retreat on a Sleepy Island "

I really enjoyed the yoga classes with Veerle. She blends asana, meditation, sounds, and music flawlessly to craft yoga classes that the participants want to attend. Taking into consideration the time of day, the weather, and the energy of her students, she offered excellent classes.

I loved the oasis-feel of the retreat centre and the laid-back atmosphere of the island itself. I loved the fact that it was the low season when I attended (July) and though it did rain a bit during a few of the days, this weather added to my increased introspection. I spent my free time exploring the sleepy island, reading, journaling, and seeking out beaches.

What an amazing way to spend 5 nights! It was just the medicine I needed! I could have easily spent a month there.

Elouise Norris

from United States, April 2018

"Beautiful and spiritual "

The island is incredible, it's a really beautiful place and a great place to really unwind, there is a chance to do nothing and reflect on the powerful spiritual and meditation quality to the yoga classes but the team also put on activities if you want to join in. The staff are always available and eager to help you with anything you need, I hope to come back again soon!

Sophie Bialek

"An Unexpectedly Incredible Experience"

I loved everything- each day taught me something new and challenged me in ways I didn't expect. It was a truly transformative experience, which is not at all what I was expecting! The location is stunning, the instructors are all incredible, and the accommodation is great! I loved it here and would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone! It's also tremendous value for money, which is a factor for most people. What a beautiful place!!!

Valentina Rigo

"Great yoga experience in exceptional surroundings"

The yoga lessons and workshops were all very good. All teachers proved to be knowedgeable and very professional. The workshop hosted were also as interesting and very good. The location is amazing as the island is just a jem of beauty and relaxation. I am glad I went there and left knowing I had a very valuable experience

Charlotte Bruns

"Just Go!"

Such a nice and relaxed place. It's good for all types and levels of Yoga, but the beginners was very busy during my stay. The instructors still make it work though! Love the 'old' sala's and the breakfast was delicious. If you are looking for a good yoga retreat, just go here. Oh! And definitely do the Tai Chi in the morning, it's Amazing!

"Life enhancing - a wonderful experience "

The friendly and relaxed feel of the retreat. The quality of the instruction was excellent. Beautiful surroundings. The daily structure which gave individuals the choice to opt in or out of activities. The scale of the place (not overwhelmingly large).

Pippa Hodges

from Malaysia, August 2017

"A perfect balance "

I enjoyed the balance between the focussed and challenging yoga sessions and the opportunity to explore the island beyond the 'retreat'. It is a sociable place, the food is delicious, and the free breakfast is plentiful and imaginative.

The staff and instructors were professional, warm and helpful.

Macedonia Domingues

"Fantastic, authentic brilliant budget yoga retreat"

I loved the location - unspoilt Thailand at its very best and so hard to find these days.

The accommodation is no frills but great. The yoga was fabulous: the perfect 'stretch' (pardon the pun!) physically, mentally and spiritually. Very knowledgeable and friendly team. Sunrise Tai Chi moving meditation on the beach an unexpected treat. I arrived with no expectations and loved every minute.

Marylin Gehlen

from Thailand, July 2018

Tout d’abord, lors de notre arrivée, les personnes présentes ont été très attentives pour répondre à nos attentes et programmer le séjour idéal pour nous.

Les cours étaient de qualité, les professeurs de yoga ont une belle présence, c’etait un réel plaisir.

Le petit déjeuner est délicieux, il y en a pour tout les goûts et c’est très bon ! :) j’apprecie l’absence de gaspillage.

"Very nice yoga retreat in Thailand "

I loved the accommodation at yoga island. It was so quiet and peaceful. The rooms are nice and the pool as well.

The rooms for yoga practice are incredible nice and welcoming.

"Belle semaine de ressourcement"

L ile magnifique, ambiance relax, thai tchi avec le levé du soleil. Bon déjeuner. Cour de yoga très bon avec une professeure en particulier (je ne me rapelle plus de son nom)bel introduction au cour et elle connait bien le côté spirituel du yoga. L autre professeur est correct mais cour un peu stressant...elle décrit énormément les positions et pas d intro au cours.

"Me Myself and I" Yoga Detox Course for Women in Thailand

When I first signed up to have a session with Aliya I had no idea what Mind Body Therapy involved. But her warm smile and gentle personality made me feel so comfortable and open that I just went with it and put my trust in her. It turns out that it was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Through deep relaxation I explored memories from my life that were once forgotten. These minute experiences turned out to be the keys in understanding so many things about myself and the distructive patterns in

my life. With these realisations I have been able to really see, understand and let go of my past, moving forward with my head held high to take on my real purpose in this life. I am and will always be grateful that I was sent something so wonderfully healing.

"Me Myself and I" Yoga Detox Course for Women in Thailand

I attended the 3 days workshop in Beirut last weekend and I would like you to know this: I feel Blessed and most of all I feel very proud of myself to have taken good decisions in my life that led me to meeting you and learning from you. It was never easy for me to change.... I’ve always seeked “change” and chased after it and for the first time I feel “change” is chasing after me, wanting me so bad to listen and take what I’m receiving seriously and Change. A teacher is everything. And I’m grateful for your teaching. I respect the way you loaded us with precious information and guided us even after you left, making it very clear that we are always connected with you and to the power of knowledge you’re willing to keep in our reach at all times. Aliya, I’m very thankful because I have a foundation of knowledge I can share now with my two teenage daughters who desperately need all this love and guidance.

"Me Myself and I" Yoga Detox Course for Women in Thailand

I met Aliya at Island Yoga in Koh Yao Noi and was first positively surprised by her willingness to help and her disposition as well as openness. I did attend her one day women’s workshop where I did learn about the feminine body and the connection to the moon. Later on, I had two guided healing sessions with her which did truly shift my life and helped me to transform old personal belief patterns. She did guide me to find answers within and to connect to my true self. I feel at peace, my inner chatter did stop. Each time, I need help Aliya is an eager teacher to help me find my stuck beliefs and advance in my path. I can only express my deepest gratitude to her.
