Leading luxury resort operator Soneva offers two immersive Yoga Retreats to the Kiri property in November. Hosted at the Six Senses Spa, guests dive into a seven-night retreat filled with relaxing yoga practice or opt for a more intense, 28-night yoga-training excursion.

Upgrade to a Yoga Alliance Certification for an additional $100 charge.

Even if you already have a meditation app on your phone, the mix of yoga nidra, chakra and trataka meditation bring peace and calm to this learning experience. The retreat is based in expert education and understanding of the mind and body, so guests receive a deeper understanding and appreciation of the science behind yoga and meditation.

Each yoga-centric package through Soneva includes transfers between Bangkok and Soneva Kiri with the resort’s private Cessna aircraft.

Travel with the family and bunk together in the resort’s larger villa or upgrade to something a bit larger for the whole gang to share. Traveling alone? Enjoy the private room and en-suite bathroom included in either package.
