Yoga Retreat at Song Saa

Yoga Retreat Song Saa - Destination Deluxe

A Private Island Retreat to Transform Your Life (October 15-21, Cambodia)

Flex Studio is once again hosting a transformational yoga retreat at Song Saa Private Island. This time a group of eight participants will head to the private island in Cambodia. Held from October 15 – 21, the six-night retreat will offer daily intensive yoga sessions with Michelle Ricaille and Flex Studio co-founder Heather Thomas Shalabi.

Yoga classes will consist of asanas, pranayama and an introduction to meditation to help balance and clear the mind. The yoga practice is suitable for beginners as well as advanced yogis.

Song Saa Private Island offers a delicious global menu with a local touch, using fresh, organic produce and specializing in locally caught seafood.

Retreat guests will also learn about the resort’s philanthropic venture, the Song Saa Foundation.

“At the start of the retreat, we will be welcomed by the Foundation Director for an overview of Song Saa’s history, philosophy and operations. Later, a journey into the local community will give us a first-hand look at the unique ways Song Saa supports and promotes sustainability through their organically responsive and needs-based approach.”

The spa philosophy is divided into three themes: stillness, healing and blessings, and treatments can be enjoyed at the spa, which is located at the very top of the property, or in one of the numerous little “nature sanctuaries” dotted across the island, allowing guests to have an unforgettable “spa with no walls” experience.

Song Saa Private Island offers 24 spacious luxurious villas, which were constructed from reclaimed timber and decorated with beautiful local materials, keeping with the resort’s philosophy of sustainability. Each villa features a private pool and breathtaking vistas of the island or the ocean.

The retreat includes all beverages (inclusive of wine, beer and cocktails), delicious organic meals, educational environmental activities, talks, as well as experiences such as snorkeling and kayaking. Spa treatments and diving are paid separately and can be arranged after arrival.
