Oasis Yoga Retreats Koh Lanta Yoga Retreats 2013

Oasis Yoga  – Koh Lanta  is excited to introduce our Yoga Retreats for 2013! Our Retreats offer holistic restorative health with laid back island relaxation. Whether you are new to yoga or a long term practioner looking to go deeper, Oasis Yoga retreats on the small island of Koh Lanta are the perfect way to transform your next holiday into an experience that will really last. Thailand is world renowned for its crystal blue waters, friendly people, and laid back atmosphere which makes it an ideal location for retreats.  As a result, yoga retreats can be found almost everywhere in Thailand. At Oasis Yoga, our small size makes a big difference in how we are able to personalize Your Retreat for you! Yoga is not ‘one size fits all’, so we strive to provide you the most appropriate yoga experience for where you are in your practice.

Keep Bending Forward

26 Mar

Sometimes we try so hard to keep moving forward when really, all we need to do is keep bending forward. Challenge yourself to really stay and hangout in Forward Bend sometime this week. Be passive, breathe deep and watch yourself gradually progress forward.

Oasis Yoga – week one.

20 Mar

 

 

OPENING WEEK! We have dreamed about this for so long it hardly feels real. Monday marked our first day at Oasis Yoga, Koh Lanta! We are having a blast. It’s been a whirlwind of meeting people and figuring out the island, but somehow we have managed to sneak a few projects into the mix and Farra has never been happier! There is so much work to be done and we are thrilled to get dirty and watch the transformation.  I have decided to dust off the ol’ blog and document this experience…. I have a feeling 60 year old Kate and Farra will appreciate it! 🙂

Zoe’s Lion

17 Feb

Oasis Yoga, Lion Pose SIMHAGARJANASNA – Roaring Lion
“Especially good for children, this is an excellent asana for the throat, nose, ears, eyes and mouth, especially if performed facing the healing rays of the early morning sun. It relieves frustration and releases emotional tension. Tension is removed from the chest and diaphragm. Roaring Lion is useful for people who stutter or nervous. It develops a strong and beautiful voice.”

Oasis Yoga for kids!

14 Feb

This week Oasis Yoga has been in the classroom introducing the little guys to a yoga practice. We went on a jungle safari and learned how fun it can be when we move our bodies!

Oasis Yoga Koh Lanta, Thailand

10 Feb

As many of our friends and family already know, we are packing it up and moving down south!  Our dream as always been to own a little place on the beach….how original, I know. After years of planning, saving, dreaming, searching and traveling we finally settled on our favorite little island in Thailand.  “The Universe Provides” seemed to be the theme of our trip to Koh Lanta and provide it did!  After one serendipitous event after the next we couldn’t ignore opportunity literally placed before us.   We took the jump and are opening for Yoga classes April 1, 2013. With plans for a detox bar, photography gallery and beautiful garden renovation we will have plenty to keep us busy! Here are the sketches for the new website, thanks for all the love and support! We have a yoga mat waiting for you, beach side!
