Prie is a yoga teacher from Thailand and went in search of a way to cure his high blood pressure (hypertension) and obesity. After he practised yoga the results were not only no more high blood pressure but a loss of 40 kilos of weight as well. A much better lifestyle and way of living both spiritual and physical body remained in their place. In addition, yoga became Prie’s passion and he loves to exchange and share this wonderful journey. He completed his 500-hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh and recently graduated with a Yin Yoga certification to further expand his knowledge.

Lovely staff, great detox instructors who guide you very well through the process, good yoga, best massage of my life, offer lots of other healing and treatment programs, food great (as far as I can tell since I was fasting for most of the time; juices and elixirs were great); beautiful, lush compound, great place to relax and get rid of your emotional and physical baggage.
Oh, and lovely beaches!

"Orion does it all!"
This was the first time I had gone to a yoga retreat and I went by myself for six days and five nights! That in and of itself is somewhat challenging, but the staff and instructors at Orion made it all worthwhile. The office staff who include Pinto, Nueng, Ann and Sarita could not have been nicer or more helpful! Pinto in particular must have answered at least three questions from me every day, with kindness and patience, he was a delight. Also, since I had all my meals and juices prepared, made to order each and every day, the servers were part Of your every day life. They were so patient and cheerful and always had a smile for you. Thanks so much to Daed and Thar and Apple! Having not been a vegan in my every day life, I was not quite sure how I would handle that kind of diet for six days. To my surprise, the food was delicious, prepared with great variety, texture and flavours. I was never left feeling hungry, always satisfied!
The yoga and meditation courses that I took were exceptional given the expertise of the instructors and also the beautiful surroundings in which you were immersed. I especially loved the studio which was facing out on the ocean, stunning at sunset during a restorative session… idyllic!
All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I have the staff and instructors to thank for that. I would come back in a heartbeat.
All the best to you, Shelley

"My Orion Experience "
First of all I need to thank all the staff involved in this beautiful life changing program. From the reception team, yoga instructors, the detox team, the staff that always cleaned my room and left it smelling super nice and restaurant staff. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Was my first time doing a detox program and I feel I couldn’t have chosen a better place. Maria thank you for being there for me, supportive and making me understand all the potential in me when I decide to believe. Human design was a great experience and definitely got me super interested to know more. You would be happy to know I’m still following everything (well almost everything) you advice me too. Cara, Adelaida thank you for the knowledge and all the moments around orion. The sweetest Som, the best moment when she demonstrated me how to do the colema! I’ll never forget 😂
Thank you Crystal, your classes were truly inspirational, only you to make me get out of the bed and make me do it.
The reiki session was outstanding, can’t remember her name ether but I’ll always remember your charisma and energy.
Chef amazing and inspiring cooking class. Very helpful for this next journey. Thank you all I’ll definitely see you all very soon.

Das Orion ist ein sehr schöner Ort, um einfach zu sein, Yoga zu machen und zu Entgiften. Die YogalehrerInnen, sowie das gesamte Personal, ob an der Rezeption oder im Restaurant sind sehr freundlich uns hilfsbereit.
Ich bin so gestresst angekommen und sehr gechillt gefahren :)
Ich habe das Detox Programm mitgemacht und bin dort sehr gut angeleitet worden. Anschließend habe ich ein Yogaretreat gemacht, auch das hat mir sehr gut gefallen - es gibt eine unglaubliche Auswahl an Yogastunden, ich hatte die Möglichkeit, verschiedene Yogastile auszuprobieren, einfach Klasse.
