This unique retreat, is a rare opportunity to experience luxurious accommodation, quiet beaches, stunning sunsets, local Thai culture, soft adventure, and small customized yoga and meditation sessions from Julie Seibt, Certified Yoga Therapist .
The spectacular Koh Jum Beach Villas , located on the Andaman Sea overlooking Koh Phi Phi National Marine Park, has set the highest sustainable luxury benchmark for island resort living in Thailand. The relatively unknown island of Koh Jum, with its great beaches and ultra relaxing atmosphere, has been mostly left untouched, an idyllic retreat setting.
From tsunami relief work and five years living in Thailand, Julie Seibt developed a deep heart connection to the island and its people, With Julie, you will be welcomed as family for an authentic experience that is truly exceptional in the world of travel,
It is refreshing to know that this resort operates conscientiously : composting, organic gardens, beach clean up (including collecting washed up flip flops form recycling into flip flops Sold in their store) involvement with local community, island traditions honored.
This retreat is less immersive in yoga than the Heart of Yoga jungle retreat the week prior. It will be a beautiful and gentle transition for those coming from the jungle retreat and will leave you free to enjoy all the island has to offer.
Daily yoga and meditation with Julie Bohonos will have an invitational tone so you can meet the needs of your body, mind, and heart. Early morning breathing, meditation and mini yoga practice on a newly constructed beachfront yoga platform/shelter will set you up to enjoy the inviting island of Koh Jum.
Linger over a buffet breakfast, followed by a little beachcombing, a refreshing swim in the ocean or pool and perhaps hop on a bike to explore the island. You may wish to sign up for one of the recommended excursions listed further below An afternoon or evening yoga session topped off with iRest® Yoga Nidra lying down meditation will be offered daily to help you stretch out and integrate the day’s activity.
