Fenua

A 33-year-old French male, an ex-circumnavigator who spent years travelling the world and crossing oceans on a sailing yacht. Getting back to a terrestrial style of life, he chooses Thailand to work for what is now the most important thing; raising human consciousness and developing well being. Yoga and meditation being the tools for this purpose. He completed his 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training. He is now devoting his entire life to this holistic science.

Hua Hin is 2 hours and 30 minutes, southwest of Bangkok on the seaside of the Gulf of Thailand. This is where you will be able to find Zen House, Yoga&Meditation Garden. This sanctuary is located in a beautiful and quiet countryside, closed to the beach and local markets.

A Thai traditional food market is located only 1 kilometer from the house and some bicycles are available for rent if you want to go and experience the local produce. The coast from Hua Hin to Sam Roy Yott national park is definitely worth having a look and exploring some beautiful and long beaches, many temples and fisherman villages. The closest beach is Sai Noi which is only 5 kilometers away. It is a lovely and spectacular beach, edged by 2 large granite rocks dipping in the water on both sides and a big Buddha statue at the top of a lush hill with the wisdom of his stare going through the nature.

  • Review by Nadine Rahm from Germany

    "Merci beaucoup for this wonderful retreat! I thought I knew what was yoga about. But you taught me so much more and gave me a real look inside yoga and why we all should do it. Your teaching is very easy to understand with always a lot of humor and a big smile. As well I like the variety of your yoga and meditation. It was really a retreat for my body (tasty vegan food, asanas) soul (peaceful surroundings, lovely house) and mind (meditation, music, nice conversation)."

    "Spending 10 days in Zen House was incredibly good on my body and spirit. Fenua provides a very comfortable stay for his guests/students. Located 10 Kms outside of Hua Hin, the house is in a very peaceful neighborhood surrounded by pineapple fields. Both meditation and yoga classes are very good. Not too hard in the beginning and gradually improve as you improve in terms of flexibility and patience. The breakfast is amazing; all fresh fruits and some nuts and lunch is quite delicious. I highly recommend Zen House for the ones who wants a fresh start or wants to make a change for the better in their lives."

  • Review by Juliane Zett from Berlin, Germany

    "I really enjoyed the multiple yoga sessions and meditation techniques during my 10 day retreat including teaching lessons that provided me insightful knowledge. The breakfast has always been a lovely variety of fruits and nuts, I would have loved more options for lunch over the 10 days though I realize that the meals were either vegetarian or vegan [100% vegan], still there should have been more options. Overall though, the food was very tasty and intensity. The accommodation itself is a little sanctuary located in the countryside in a peaceful environment. Every night I had a good night's sleep and this helped me a lot to experience this retreat.Julien is a very friendly humorous and helpful teacher. I can recommend this retreat from the bottom of my heart."

  • Review by Anni from Berlin, Germany

    "The house is calm & a peaceful place, clean and minimal. The chores in the house and garden can be used as a meditation. It would be amazing if you grow vegetables one day :) Animals are so sweet. They show us each moment how is it to be in the present moment, only to enjoy your life and go for your simply needs, that's it. Thank you so much for sharing all the knowledge about yoga. I really want to learn more about this science. A balanced mix between hatha yoga and meditation. Food and tea was really nice and all the time different, but also kind of the same (gave me safetiness, life becomes easiest). It would be nice if the food was more detox-oriented. For the practise, a good explanation, clear and easy. We all are coming from our own yoga experiences or tradition and it can be so different. I think it is the innapropriate way to think about what is right what is wrong. Better we look for it how we can compare it on a good way....Sometimes one body needs some alternative or special help, maybe you can help your students a little bit more if you have more knowledge about it.Showing different meditations are good, because everybody can look for his/her favorites. Thank you for all the great spirit. May there be love and light guiding your path. "

  • Review by Vicky from Saltburn-by-the-sea, UK

    "I really like your style of teaching, very calming, balancing, you have shown me another side of Yoga, one that I didn't really know existed. It was not at all what I was expecting, but I'm glad, as it was better you explain everything clearly and I loved the theory side of the classes too. I like how we alternated Sun salutations, yoga intuitive and the meditations, it keeps it interesting.Food is simple, healthy and delicious, my body and mind feel light! Breakfast was my favorite, trying all the new varieties of fruits, some I had never seen before. I liked the change from rice to noodles too. And as much as I enjoy brown rice, I may have a rest of it when I get home! (too much of a good thing) When I do buy it again I'll make sure I get organic. In fact, you have made me think about a lot of things / eat, I will look into macro-biotic diet n7!The house is beautiful in energy, very calming, clean and friendly, room was very confortable, fans were nice to keep cool.Everything was perfect, and I've loved my stay here, I'd love to come back!And if you're ever in England, I'd love to have you teach at my studio! Much love to you, Foxie and Cookie, take care, I'll miss you all."

  • Review by Andrew from Leeds, UK

    "Food have great selection of fruit in the morning, really helps promote a healthier lifestyle and gives us a real taste of Thailand. The lunches are good healthy meals with enough taste to keep the taste buds interested and enough energy for the rest of the day.The teaching consist of great informative lessons really give structure to the Yoga practise and the theory has broadened by understanding of the yoga practise a lot. The change between meditation in AM/PM with Yoga keeps the balanced and exciting. Only thing I would suggest is a diagram of chakras to make it easy to remember ( with both names) and maybe some softer lighting outside.The house has a great vibe, and gives us a comfortable place to continue our meditation and rest. Really encourages peace of mind, with pets helping to sooth our minds and calm us down."

    "Juju's 10 days yoga retreat at Zen House was a fantastic example of how a great teacher makes all of the difference in the world. Blessed with a genuine, open hearted and good humored approach, our group was able to learn through practice, theory, and explorative conversation. For these reasons and more I loved my experience with Juju (affectionately named, lol) as he reminded me and my girlfriend that yoga starts in the mind and doesn't care if you're flexible or not."

  • Review by Vina Bina

    "Julien's retreat was a delight. The space was in a sanctuary, which really gave us the ability to relax, find peace, and be present in the moment. The course was very consistent with the Agama Yoga theory and practice, and it was really interesting and an eye opening to learn the traditional spiritual aspects to yoga & what energy center it correlates to. Julien has such a bright and open hearted/minded spirit, that I feel very comfortable to ask question and learn things that are beyond my field of life experience. It really opened my soul to live a more mindful, ethical, and enriching lifestyle. Thank you!"
