Yoga Retreat in Cambodia
7 days + 6 nights // February 9 - 15, 2020 - SOLD OUT
If you’ve always wanted to explore the far corners of the globe, to stretch your understanding of the world and see monumental beauty — now is your chance.
We are headed on once-in-a-lifetime adventure to Southeast Asia, to a breathtaking town of ancient temples, lotus flowers and Buddhist monks — Siem Reap, Cambodia!
7 days + 6 nights at an environmentally conscious boutique hotel. The property is tucked away from the bustling streets of Siem Reap, but just minutes away from the markets and nightlife of Pub Street
Daily yoga classes in our private, roof-top terrace practice space, yoga mats + props provided
Several excursions to fully immerse yourself in the stunning landscapes, energy and culture of Cambodia (all with an English speaking local guide):
Exhilarating tour of the temple of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO world heritage site, and the largest religious monument in the world
Visit to a local market with a chef, followed by a private Khmer (Cambodian) cooking class
Enjoy several additional temple tours such as the famous entrance statues at Angkor Thom, the intricately detailed Banteay Srei and Ta Prohm, featured in the Tomb Raider movies
Boat cruise to explore the nearby Tonle Sap lake (the largest freshwater lake in S.E. Asia) - experience the self-contained life of the local people in the floating villages
Plenty of free time to kick back or explore on your own:
Visit additional temples or other local sites (can be arranged through hotel)*
e.g. catch the famous sunrise over Angkor Wat - a photographer’s dream
Indulge in a on-site spa experience (massage, facial, body scrub)*
Read a good book in the zen garden-like atmosphere of the property, take a dip in the saltwater pool, or nap on a sun lounger
Enjoy a tropical cocktail poolside - happy hour 2 for 1 specials every day!*
Round trip ground transportation from Siem Reap airport to the retreat property
Daily on-site breakfast, two (2) lunches and four (4) mindfully-curated group dinners in magical settings to experience the local cuisine (all dietary preferences / restrictions can be accommodated)
Mandatory tourist fee / government ticket for access to all temples
Opportunity to visit the Peacock Learning Center - an English language school for children in a local Cambodian village nearby - the kids are eager to talk to native English speakers and play games!
A portion of the proceeds from every trip booked will be donated to PLC. The donation on behalf of each guest is enough to send one child to daily English classes for 2 years. Learning English helps to lift children in Cambodia out of poverty as it opens up an opportunity to explore secondary education as well as additional job options outside of farming.
All guests will receive a detailed itinerary, packing list and constant support leading up to and during the retreat. You sign up, pack up and go! Let someone else who has recently traveled to the destination and has local contacts handle all the logistics and planning for you!
