WHY IT RATES: Already one of the most relaxing places in the world, Soneva Kiri is getting two new immersive yoga retreats to bring the relaxation and self-betterment to the next level.-Michael Schottey, TravelPulse Director of Digital Content
Soneva, the world-leading luxury resort operator, has announced that it will bring two immersive Yoga Retreats to its remote jungle resort, Soneva Kiri, on the unspoiled Thai island of Koh Kood, in November 2018. These exclusive Hatha yoga experiences at the resort's Six Senses Spa will be available as both a seven-night retreat (for yoga enthusiasts and practitioners) and a 28-night intensive yoga teacher training.
The seven-night retreat at Soneva Kiri includes two hours of yoga and 40 minutes of meditation per day, two hours of spa treatments and pre and post wellness screenings. The 28-night package is comprised of 200 hours of certified yoga teacher training, including practice (asanas, pranayama, meditation and cleanses), 50 hours of theory, 25 hours of assignments, and 25 hours of self-study. A Yoga Alliance Certification can be earned with an extra charge of US$100. Meditation will include a mix of yoga nidra, trataka, and a chakra meditation.
Both the retreat and the yoga teacher training will be led by Dorelal, a yoga expert with a Master in Applied Yoga Science from the Bihar School of Yoga, the first yoga university in the world. Dorelal has spent many years working at Ananda in the Himalayas, a luxury ayurvedic retreat in India that integrates traditional Ayurveda, yoga, and Vedanta with international wellness. He has also traveled to Russia, Korea and other parts of Asia teaching yoga.
Both packages include shared return flight transfers between Bangkok and Soneva Kiri on a fixed schedule on Soneva's private Cessna aircraft. Guests will be sharing accommodation in the resort's larger villas, with each guest getting a private room with an en-suite bathroom. Daily half board (breakfast and dinner), comprised of health-conscious and nutritious cuisine and non-alcoholic beverages at the resort restaurants, is also included. All guests will have a Mr./Ms. Friday butler to see to their needs during their stay, full access to the resort's gym and tennis court, as well as complimentary use of WiFi.
The seven-night retreat is valid from November 15-22, 2018 and is priced at US$5,670 per person for single occupancy and US$8,670 per person for double occupancy. The 28-night yoga teacher training package is valid for stays in November 2018 and is priced at US$15,100 per person for single occupancy and US$21,520 per person for double occupancy.
