Meal times:
Brunch: 9:30 am-1:00 pm
Dinner: 6:00-8:00 pm

7:30 am " Meditation and Breathwork Practice for all levels We follow a holistic approach to yoga, aiming to ground students properly and help them grow from there. We open the day up with a sitting (meditation) practice of contemplation coupled with dedicated breathwork practices. This is excellent to learn and take home, to be done anywhere and great to handle stress and improve health. 8 am " Morning asana class options Depending on your level and amount of previous experience with yoga, we try to offer separate classes for different levels. This may vary depending on the numbers and the in-house program. For those newer to yoga there will either be a simple guided ashtanga based class, meaning the classical poses are taught and encouraged to be memorized, flowing from breath to breath. This is an excellent start to yoga and a real practice. From here it is possible to leave with the basics of a practice, take it home with you and and continue it at another studio or be able to practice yourself while alone. From here it is easy to participate in the ashtanga self-practice classes, known as “mysore style”. To learn more about Ashtanga, Mysore style, and Yoga please visit these pages on our site describing them in more detail.. On some days, there may be a gentle class that includes some flow, some basic hatha asanas and some technique and detail. This can help you understand better and begin to learn more about the yoga practice. The Ashtanga mysore style, in particular-is a very thorough approach to the practice of yoga. The sequence begins with basic postures, later opening up and revealing its depth as students continue to practice. The Mysore approach works with students individually, so that they progress according to their level. A beginner starts with only a few poses, gradually adding more and more as your practice develops and your proficiency and commitment evolve. This ensures that the student is always challenged and growing while, at the same time, practicing at the level appropriate for you. To learn more about Ashtanga, Mysore style, and Yoga please visit these pages on our site describing them in more detail. For newcomers to the Ashtanga series, a minimum of one week’s stay is recommended. Those with experience in practice can do shorter stays. The minimum stay is three days. All are encouraged to do longer stays, as the teaching can then fully sink in and practice can begin to reveal itself.

5:00 pm " Restorative-Yin-Hatha Yoga with Breathworkclass These afternoon restorative classes alternate throughout the week on themes of gentle flow, yin, basic hatha and qigong and are a rich addition to guests yoga holiday. All involve a certain amount of breathwork practice. Gentle-flow yoga classes are light yet detailed and enjoyable. The classes are guided by the teacher, and students of any level can participate. They are perfect for those who want to take it easy in asana, but still be (mildly) challenged, or for those doing a detox program. Yin Restorative yoga is a blissful, gentle, deeply healing and meditative practice. It is ideal for relieving stress and tension and works on the connective tissues and internal systems of the body. All asanas are seated or reclining and maintained for a few minutes, supported by props as need be. Hatha basics explore the fundamentals of Yoga. Asanas (postures) are held for longer time with attention to details of alignment and often with rest phases between postures. Basic inversion poses may be included. Qigong happens when veteran yogini, Dorien, now in her 60s, is on site. She shares with you the basics of this Taoist practice that is both healing and energizing, involving soft whole body movements with synchronized breathing. All our other teachers are dedicated to the practice and life of yoga. Our intention for your yoga holiday is to offer a thorough, clean, and, of course, enjoyable approach to learning and practicing yoga.

Getting to Koh Samui & Samahita Retreat
By Air
Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways fly directly to Koh Samui from Bangkok. They operate flights every hour daily, and you can book your flights directly online. The first flight out is around 6 am and last flight is around 10 pm daily. One-way is around 4000 THB. Travel time is approximately one hour from Bangkok.

There are direct also flights from Phuket, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Hong Kong.

By Train and Ferry
Bangkok to Samui: Trains for Surathani (which actually stop in Phun Phin, 14 kilometers west of Surathani) leave from Bangkok’s Hualamphong station. The 6:20 pm (rapid) and the 7:15 pm (express) trains are most convenient, as they arrive at 5:28 am and 7 am, allowing you plenty of time to catch an 8 am boat to Koh Samui. The bus/ferry journey will be an additional three hours once you’ve arrived in Surathani. Songserm offers a joint ticket (train + bus + boat) for around THB B1,300, which lands you in Koh Samui by 11 am.

The ferry journey from Donsak pier is 1 1/2 hours. Donsak is 30 minutes from Surathani.

Tickets for the train can be booked at Bangkok Airport, Bangkok Railway Station, and many travel agencies in Bangkok. To purchase your train tickets in advance, Asia Discover Thailand can arrange for the tickets to be mailed or to be picked up at your Bangkok hotel. Allow at least one month before your departure date to arrange for train tickets.

Samui to Bangkok: Take the 2 pm boat from Nathon to the mainland, and a connecting bus will take you from the pier to the train station in Surathani. Tickets purchased from agents in Samui normally include the boat, bus, and train fares. The ticket is cheaper if you go to the station yourself, but there is a good chance the train will be fully booked as much as a week in advance.

Extending your stay
Without a visa in advance, foreigners are allowed to stay 30 days in Thailand. If you have a tourist visa, generally you can stay for 60 days, with the opportunity to extend to 90 days. Visa extensions cost about THB B1900. Overstaying your visa costs THB B500 per day, with a maximum fine of THB B20,000. You can extend your visa at the immigration office in Koh Samui. They are open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to noon and 1 pm to 4:30 pm. Bring one passport photo with you.


Long term stay discount available. In house guest receives 20% discount on all wellness services.

Tips on Travelling to Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand is a spiritual, colorful, and peaceful land. Koh Samui, in particular, is lush and beautiful, with tropical jungles and white-sand beaches surrounded by a sapphire-blue sea. An island in the Gulf of Thailand, Samui is situated in a high-energy zone, which directly affects practices like yoga and meditation, and makes it an ideal place for positive transformation and growth.

Health
Thailand is a clean, healthy place to visit. No immunization shots are required. With the latest SARs scare in Asia (2003) and Avian Bird Flu (2004, 2005), Thailand has been even more cautious about tourist safety. You can always check the World Health Organization (WHO) for updates.

Having said that, we recommend you take precautions to keep your immune system strong. Drink bottled water, wash your hands regularly, eat clean, healthy foods (do not eat street food), and take vitamin supplements if necessary.
