|About the retreat
Join us for a healing and rejuvenating week of yoga practice at the secluded and stunningly beautiful sanctuary – SALA Phuket Resort and Spa. This serene and very tranquil place by the sea has been personally chosen by Joakim for its deeply healing properties – so peaceful and supportive to the practice of yoga, yet just a short flight away.
The focus of the retreat will be to return to our natural and Divine state of bliss. SALA's healing environment will enhance this and you will come back feeling healed, uplifted, blissful, fully re-charged and rejuvenated with a new and better understanding of both yoga and yourself.
Begin the day with a two-hour invigorating yoga class inspired by Sri Dharma Mittra's master class. It will challenge and open you up on all levels through individualised attention by a master teacher. In the true spirit and honour of Sri Dharma Mittra, all levels of yoga practitioners can be accommodated in this class setting.
Afternoon sessions will focus on different types of asanas and techniques to understand the principles of even the most challenging poses. This will all be done in a playful, fun and safe way that will help you develop you on both the physical and the mental planes. These sessions will also be used for restorative practices. We will round off the day with a quiet and healing meditation.
Allow yourself the luxury of time to integrate all aspects of yoga in this magical, beachside luxury resort. It will be done through asanas, pranayama, meditation, kriyas and other purifying yogic techniques that are ancient but still apply in today's modern and busy world – perhaps more so than ever. All these techniques and teachings will be heavily inspired by what Joakim’s beloved gurus Sri Andrei Ram Om and Sri Dharma Mittra have passed on to him. This will be offered to you while still allowing quiet and peaceful time for yourself – or with your yoga friends – in the day to reflect. More active people can also choose to do snorkelling/diving, elephant trekking, mountain biking and golf, all of which can be easily arranged by SALA. For people who prefer and need to do a bit of work, Wi-Fi is available in the rooms/villas, restaurant, lounge and even while relaxing in the sun loungers. You can also pamper yourself with spa treatments and/or in the sauna and steam rooms. And if yoga is not enough, there's also a gym available...
Join us on this truly healing and purifying retreat at SALA's mesmerising space – one that has been designed to calm and clear the mind, and allow your most precious and beautiful self to shine forth brightly.
Be nourished by healing and prana-filled fare like raw foods and salads, much of which is locally grown and have many restorative properties. We will also incorporate superfoods like quinoa, coriander, etc. All dishes have been created by Jan – Joakim's friend and head chef at SALA – in cooperation with Joakim. Enjoy healthy, easily digested food that is rich in enzymes, nurturing for both body and mind, and helps us connect to our true and Divine self.
