Increase self-knowledge, acceptance, and love through embodied inquiry, asana, pranayama, meditation, and philosophical study. Embodyoga programs are well-rounded, in-depth studies of yoga with an emphasis on personal embodiment as the basis for becoming a yoga teacher. Join Island Yoga for this training and you will learn, discover, and develop a depth and beauty in your yoga practice that remains constant when you step off the mat.
During the retreat, you will stay in bungalows of Ulmer’s nature lodge. Wi-Fi is available at the lodge and at most of the restaurants in Tha Khao village. The base of Island Yoga is Ulmer’s nature lodge in Tha Khao village, a quiet beachfront resort run by Ning and her ever smiling crew of family and friends who put their heart and soul into making your stay special.
Island Yoga has four types of accommodations to choose from. For the cost conscious traveler, there are dorm beds and private rooms in the budget house. Comfort bungalows are more spacious with a fan, hot shower, and mosquito net while the AC bungalows add a little more luxury to the retreat experience. When the nature lodge is full of guests, you will stay in one of the nearby lodges a few minutes’ walk from the yoga shala. All the resorts Island Yoga uses are of a similar standard to nature lodge and all are situated either on the beach or a one-minute walk from the beach.
AC bungalow and comfort bungalow are fully furnished bungalows that include fan, hot shower, and mosquito net. There are four private rooms within the budget house, each with its own bathroom. These rooms have a double bed or two single beds plus a fan, hot shower, and mosquito net. Island Yoga has two female dorms and one mixed dorm; each unit having a shared bathroom. All the dorms have single beds, fridge, fans, hot showers, and mosquito nets.
Embodyoga is an approach to yoga developed by Patty Townsend and begins with the premise that your entire personal self, body, heart, and mind, is a sea of pure vibrating creative awareness. Island Yoga recognizes that each aspect of your physical, subtle, and energetic form is an expression of this pure awareness manifesting through individual qualities and traits.
They experience these aspects as gradations of pure awareness, all having equal value and importance, and all interwoven to form a system that is perfectly equipped and primed for self-realization. Through the process of inquiry, which guides the journey into their unique body-mind system, Island Yoga harnesses the powerful forces of curiosity and desires to guide your exploration.
Experience has shown you that whatever route this journey takes, it leads to the revelation of the unity that underlies all form. In this way, embodyoga practice provides you a direct experience of unity that remains with you on and off the yoga mat, manifesting through, and supporting your relationships with yourself and others.
In the same way that a tripod relies equally on three legs and will fall if one is not presented, embodyoga is supported by three pillars; embodied inquiry, santosha or acknowledgment of and contentment with what is without judgment, and Viveka or discriminating awareness. In this way, you explore the body, mind, and spirit in a unique and deep way, focusing on inner awareness, and embodiment as the deepest experience of self.
Integrated teaching principles include principles of observation, instruction, demonstration, and touch, art, and science of sequencing, planning and teaching classes, principles of teaching, philosophy and ethics of teaching, and teaching as a profession. Each yoga vacation begins with the evening yoga class at 16:30 on the day of arrival and concludes after the morning class on the final day.
The retreat will take place in Koh Yao Noi, Thailand. Koh Yao Noi is located in the Phang Nga Bay between Phuket and Krabi. It remains one of the rare gems of Southeast Asia, an island still largely undiscovered by mainstream tourism with pristine beaches, friendly locals, and outstanding natural beauty. It is really the perfect retreat hideaway.
Plenty of leisure time between your yoga classes allows you to discover the islands’ customs and culture, adventures, and cuisine. You can cruise the spectacular Phang Nga Bay, explore the island by bicycle or scooter, take a Thai cookery class, or just relax in the hammock or get a massage. The island is completely safe, and the locals are very friendly and polite. It is remarkable to walk down the main street in the market and see every motor scooter with its key in the ignition.
You can rent bicycles, kayaks, and motor scooters at the lodge to explore the island. If you need a taxi, just speak to Ning and she will organize one for you. This local village is called Tha Khao and is a 10-minute walk along the beach from the nature lodge. Tha Khao has a "sell everything" store, food stalls, and an internet cafe. The main road around the island is a 20-kilometer loop. There is one real town halfway around the loop called "the market" which has about 1000 inhabitants.
The market has a seven-eleven, a post office, police station, bank, internet cafes, local and tourist restaurants, clothes shopping, a pharmacy, and an ATM. There are beaches all along the eastern side of the island and amazing sunrises. The western side has mangroves with good bird watching and stunning sunsets.
With plenty of free time during the day, you can explore remote beaches and lively markets, rice paddies, and rubber plantations. Recreation options include swimming and snorkeling, hiking and biking, rock climbing, and kayaking.
Daily breakfast and lunch are included in the price. All yogis take the delicious and hearty breakfast at the lodge. You can also order snacks, shakes, lunch, and dinner at the lodge or visit other restaurants in the village and around the island. You can order vegetarian options to most items on the local restaurant menus. There is a water station at the restaurant where you can refill your water bottles.
