I stayed at Marga Yoga on Koh Samui, Thailand for a one week Yoga Retreat. It was over the recent Christmas period (2013). It was a wonderful way to spend the week – a good balance of serious yoga and meditation with festive and fun activities.
For example: on Christmas day itself, we went snorkelling and picnicking on a beautiful beach, but only after an exhilarating yoga session! The food was good quality vegetarian, with a few meat options, although in fact, the group I was with, even the hardened carnivores, avoided the meat options because the vegie choices were so good! There was lots of fresh fruit, lots of varied salads and local vegetables, and most of all, a choice between the very spicy Thai food or more restrained and bland for the faint of heart foreigner!
The free time between yoga sessions was passed very happily because the Yoga Centre is right next to a simple beach, great for relaxing, walking or swimming. Best of all was the opportunity to do Yoga twice a day with expert tuition and a very serene and friendly atmosphere. At the end of the week, we were all fitter, calmer and had made some very good friendships.
I went with my daughter, as we were coming to terms with a Christmas without a much loved mother and grandmother, so we were hoping for something that would help us bear our loss. We would both recommend it highly as a great place for yoga, and a lovely alternative way to spend Christmas.
