Program

Brain wellness through three Samahita keys

Samahita’s brain health upgrade program, Samahita Retreat’s classes, food, and support, and Samahita’s natural environment are keys for a total brain health upgrade to improve sleep, brain function, and start or enhance a meditation practice.

Your brain is involved in everything you do. Its health is vital to how you feel, think, age, perform, love, learn, and share. Circulation to and through your brain, known as cerebral blood flow as well as the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, indicates how well your brain performs and subsequently how you feel. You might be looking in several places to improve your health or fix what is bothering you. To do so, you must upgrade your brain’s health.

You will get

  • A brain health upgrade session every day
  • A private session in craniosacral therapy, health coaching, meditation techniques, or breath training
  • Full spectrum infrared sauna sessions
  • Every class and program in YogaCoreCycle
  • All that Samahita has to offer

Poor brain health signs and symptoms

  • Low resilience
  • Brain fog
  • Fatigue
  • Irregular emotions
  • Forgetful
  • Lack of motivation
  • Food cravings and indulgence
  • Energy crashes
  • Disrupted or poor quality sleep
  • Low sex drive
  • Underactive physically
  • Meditation nightmare
  • Family history

Your brain needs

  • Good nutrition, especially the right fats
  • Breath regulation so you breathe optimally when awake and when asleep
  • Good quality sleep
  • Moderate body exercise
  • Body joint mobility and facial stimulation with stretches
  • A detox and cleanse to your organs, especially in the digestive system
  • A good sweat, ideally daily
  • Good light and the right light at different times of day

Your stay at Samahita gives you

  • Nature and her beauty
  • Delicious food
  • Yoga, fitness, wellness
  • Brain health upgrade gives you more mitochondria enhancement, brainwave modulation, and meditation entrainment

The flow of elements in a brain health upgrade session

  • Step one

Light therapy to enhance your cellular energy level, so you feel better and your brain can work better. When your brain works better, you will do everything with much greater involvement and energy.

  • Step two

Brainwave modulation through audio-visual entrainment so you enter complete relaxation and cultivate the meditator’s mind. AVE stimulates certain brainwave states, in particular, the alpha range, to improve brain function, reduce inflammation in the brain, help you think better, and behave nicer.

  • Step three

A targeted meditation session with biofeedback to let you know the state of your mind and how you are actually doing as you sit and attempt meditative practice.

  • Step four

One-on-one sitting and guidance with one of Samahita’s senior teachers, discussion on anything that may have arisen through the session, and support to help understand the process and keep at it.

Mitochondria enhancement with red light and near-infrared light therapy

Light therapy is as old as the sun. Human beings thrived and grew due to exposure to the full light spectrum of the sun.

Brain wave modulation through audiovisual entertainment

Samahita Retreat will use a device which utilizes a cutting-edge, non-invasive, drug-free approach to help you sleep, relax, repair, learn, and just overall function better.

Meditation entrainment with mini-EEG biofeedback

Sessions with a wearable mini-EEG device that listens to your brain while you sit (or lay) during the timed meditation session.

Included excursions

We offer complimentary weekly excursions including a boat trip to a nearby remote island with snorkeling, a temple walk, and transport to the Fisherman's Village street food market on Fridays.

Retreat location

Samahita Retreat is located on the south coast of Koh Samui, a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. The ideal setting for Thailand holiday packages, it is only about an hour away from Bangkok by air, an hour plus from Singapore, and three hours from Hong Kong. Koh Samui has the allure of a remote island paradise, but with the accessibility of the regions most popular destinations.

Situated on Laem Sor beach, Samahita Retreat is surrounded by towering coconut trees in a quiet and spacious area with incredible sunrises and sunsets that play with the colors of the water, sand, and tropical fauna. Only a few hundred meters away is the well-known Laem Sor Pagoda, which houses the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk.

The only other structures in the area are privately owned villas. As such, Samahita Retreat's beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga holiday and chosen wellness packages. The main shopping areas are still within easy reach about fifteen to thirty minutes away by car or motorbike. Samahita Retreat's gentle setting inspires long, refreshing walks on the beach or through the meandering back roads.
