Above Yoga in Charming 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
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 sites (arranged through hotel)*
e.g. catch the famous sunrise over Angkor Wat
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 specials every day!*
Round trip ground transportation from Siem Reap airport to the retreat property
Daily on-site breakfast included, as well as 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

Above Yoga retreats are adults-only. All guests must be 18 or older. While this property is a small, boutique hotel, it is not private to our group, so there may be other guests (adults + children) staying on property at the same time.
All yoga classes, group meals, and excursions are completely optional. You may participate in as much or as little as you would like. Yoga classes will be accessible to all levels of practitioners.
You will need to leave the US by Friday, Feb. 7 or early Saturday, Feb. 8 in order to arrive by Sunday, Feb. 9. We highly recommend you fly to the region at least a day earlier than required in order to give yourself addition time if there are flight delays or cancellations.

If you wish to explore other parts of SE Asia, such as Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and other parts of Cambodia, Above Yoga would be happy to offer suggestions.
