IT TAKES YOU TO ASHTANGA: JOIN KIM ROBERTS FOR YOGA RETREATS IN NATURE’S ABUNDANCE

By Su

KHAO SOK, THAILAND – Take a break and reconnect with your inner source of joy. Ashtanga Yoga master Kim Roberts is hosting three yoga retreats and getaways at Thanyamundra, a tranquil and private sanctuary nestled amongst the mist-shrouded mountains of Khao Sok National Park.

Ashtanga

Kim Roberts has announced three new dates for her highly anticipated Ashtanga Yoga retreats to be held at Thanyamundra Organic Resort in the mountains of Khao Sok in southern Thailand.

Aside from daily ashtanga yoga and meditation, savour the best of organic cuisine grown on our 70 rai organic farm, outings into the ancient Khao Sok rainforest, and a welcome break from the hectic pace of modern life to help guests recharge and rejuvenate their mind and body.

Thanyamundra, recently elevated to DestinAsian’s Luxe List and voted one of Thailand’s top 3 eco-resorts by agoda.com, is the most perfect setting you could hope to find to take your yoga practice to a deeper level, or to take your first lesson.

The dates are as follows:

April 7-11, 2012 Easter Week Retreat
July 6-9, 2012 Weekend Yoga Getaway
October 26-29, 2012 Weekend Yoga Getaway

Ms. Roberts says the main goal of the retreats and getaways is to explore the foundational practices of Ashtanga yoga, leading students at their own pace to revitalise and prepare the body to experience its deeper essence in meditation.

Practitioners will move through the postures at their own pace and advance only when ready. The practice will be adjusted to the appropriate level for each student. No prior experience is necessary and all levels of students are welcome.

Beginning her committed practice of Ashtanga yoga in 1992 under the guidance of Richard Freeman in Boulder, Colorado, USA, Kim spent a year studying with Sri Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath Rangaswamy in Mysore, India, where she was authorised to teach the Ashtanga system. In addition, Kim earned a teaching certificate from the White Lotus Institute in Santa Barbara, California. She also has extensive experience guiding meditation students in retreat settings.

Thanyamundra is located on a 70 rai working organic farm and offers a private and tranquil sanctuary for guests.

Thanyamundra is a nine-suite sanctuary perched above the rolling terraces of an organic farm where some of the Asia’s most pure produce is lovingly coaxed from rich soil, amidst the mountains and spectacular limestone karsts of Khao Sok National Park.

With Asian antique filled suites in two modern, Thai-inspired golden teak villas, Thanyamundra has been transformed from the home of a European entrepreneur into an impressive retreat offering warm and professional service, gourmet organic cuisine, and holistic wellness in an incredible natural environment.

Thanyamundra boasts a variety of invigorating fitness and leisure facilities. Swim laps or sun bathe at the 50-metre hilltop infinity pool, stay fit in the gym or explore the local roads for running or cycling. Each of Thanyamundra’s spacious suites are fully equipped with modern comforts from high-speed wireless Internet and LCD flat screen televisions to Thai silk interiors and spacious private bathrooms with separate rain showers.

IT TAKES YOU TO ASHTANGA: JOIN KIM ROBERTS FOR YOGA RETREATS IN NATURE'S ABUNDANCEPierre Gagnon practised concentration and insight meditation intensively from 2010 to 2012, then went on to study meditation at Wat Suan Mokkh with the venerable Ajahn Po from 2013 to 2015. As well as his own practice, he has coordinated meditation retreats in the south of Thailand which were attended by more than 1,000 people.

Having a great passion in the field of neuroscience, he likes to integrate these concepts into meditation practice. He believes that much of our life is lived resisting and defending against internal and external experiences that people perceive as threats. Through the development of concentration and meditation, we can insightfully see that all experiences are harmless and there is no need to defend of contract around them.  Pierre has experience coordinating concentration and insight meditation retreats, teaching the relationship that exists between Buddhism and neuroscience.
