SAMAHITA RETREAT, KOH SAMUI
Center for Classical Yoga and Holistic Health
Samahita Retreat is teacher owned and directed by Paul Dallaghan since 2003 on the island of Koh Samui, and has often been called a "hidden gem". The center has been a location for practice, learning and holiday for literally thousands of guests. The way we live is what we want to share with you - a healthy life and sincere yoga practice for your personal growth and transformation. It is open to anyone, new to yoga or looking to learn more or just to holiday in a healthy environment.
Samahita translates as "centered" or "balanced" in Sanskrit. This word has been a powerful force with us since 1999 when Centered Yoga was founded. It encapsulates the essence of yoga and highlights a place we arrive at from practice. Our retreat center has a well-respected reputation in offering yoga retreats, yoga training, yoga holidays, Pranayama and Meditation, wellness spa and detox programs, delicious and healthy food and an atmosphere conducive to both restoration and growth.
Samahita Retreat is also home to Centered Yoga - a leader in the field of yoga education and teacher training. Since its founding in 1999 it has been offering courses for professional yoga teachers, those aspiring to become teachers, and serious students seeking to go deeper in the practice. Our reputation is known as Asia's most respected and longest running Yoga Alliance Registered Program both at the 200 and 500 levels and the only one officially so in Thailand.
Samahita Retreat offers a complete approach to well-being, one that takes into account physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental aspects of one's health. We offer several personalized and guided detox programs, to help you back to good health and even take your yoga practice a step further while transforming your body and mind.
Our retreat center is located in the south of Koh Samui, right on the beach. It is in a quiet area off the beaten track, with plenty of privacy and comforts, yet still close to markets and amenities. The beach is virtually ours alone, all the rooms have an ocean view, and the surroundings are lush and green. Just down the beach is the golden pagoda of a realized Buddhist monk, whose force has drawn us to this special spot.
All levels of students, from beginners to advanced, from all sorts of backgrounds, join us here. It is the kind of place where someone traveling alone can meet people and feel at home, and where families can relax and enjoy themselves. (We offer many services for parents of young children, who might not have much time for their yoga back home.) Even partners who don't do yoga or wellness find our setup perfect for them while their other half gets on with the yoga and treatments! In short, all are welcome.
