UPDATE! This giveaway has ended. Instead, learn about yoga on Koh Samui.
We mentioned awhile ago that Koh Samui is becoming a great destination for yoga fanatics (and those of us with genuine intentions to touch our toes one day). As such, we’re really excited to offer a giveaway thanks to the lovely people at Vikasa Yoga Retreat.
Vikasa Yoga Retreat
Opened last year on a gorgeous site between Lamai and Chaweng, we can’t wait try a few classes ourselves. Vikasa’s photos of food, scenery and – yes – yoga practice, plus compelling TripAdvisor reviews, have put it amongst our top new places to try.
In their words – Vikasa Yoga Retreat “is a boutique yoga resort and organic restaurant offering an inspiring yoga environment created by Konstantin Miachin.” The resorts’ rooms cater equally to couples and single travellers, with both a pool and gym on site. Need another reason to stick around after class? It goes like this: “Hello, massaaaaaage”.
Vikasa’s giveaway prize
As a great rainy season kick-off, they’re offering one of you a 10-class yoga package (worth 3,500 ฿, or approx. US$110 / £70). You can choose to take all ten classes yourself (it’s valid for 2 months from first use), or enjoy them with your spouse, family and friends – 10 classes total, however you’d like to enjoy them.
We really like their inclusive attitude, espoused here: “We believe that everyone is a yogi, and that means you. You don’t need to be flexible or thin, or have the “right” clothes. You don’t need to know ancient Sanskrit or burn incense in your home. All you need to do is show up with an open mind and do your best.” (See Vikasa on Facebook for more).
