  “New Beginnings 2019 ”

Join us for 7 magical days and nights from January 5th – 12th to practice yoga in one of the most captivating places in the world. This men's yoga retreat is a journey of discovery for the Conscious Man - incorporating strength, balance, and flexibility - stimulating the mind and restoring the body.

Yoga4men is a style focusing specifically on the male body and targeting common areas of tension - shoulders, hips and hamstrings. It's a balance of playful discovery, mindfulness, challenging physical practice and inspiring philosophy.

Every day will be a garland of practices, including 2 Asana classes, pranayama, and meditation to re-ignite the passions in your life. RAD KAIM will offer sessions of combined asana and transpersonal work with the opportunity for men to gather in the company of other men in spiritual practice.

 

NEW YEAR: NEW BEGINNINGS

We love this time of year. A time for reflection, for change, for making plans.  This is the best time of year to reflect on what’s been going on and what you would like to do differently. The NEW BEGINNINGS retreat is an integrated, balanced and grounded approach to manifestation. Through a 7 days powerful yogic journey you will have an opportunity to develop a clear and solid approach to creating what is most valuable to you. Learn a potent set of skills and practices to bring your heart, mind and body into deeper alignment.

The purpose of this retreat is to empower you through becoming aware of your energy centres (chakras) and enrich your life by tapping into the vast technology of Yoga and Meditation. This retreat will increase your awareness of your EIGHT HUMAN TALENTS on a physical, mental and spiritual level by using simple meditative and yogic techniques. When men of integrity and compassion join together to Wake Up, Grow Up, and Show Up, the ripples created change the world.

I’ve had the good fortune to find Rad’s yoga retreats for men and the pleasure of attending 2 New Year retreats in Goa 2016 and Bali 2017. The experience of daily exercise for the body and mind in idealic locations, with a great bunch of guys is the perfect way to reset and plan for the year ahead. The retreats have helped me in understanding and dealing with my anxiety and day to day stresses. I have reflected on the past, learnt how to be present in the now and set life goals for the year ahead. My yoga has improved immensely as has my mediation which now calms my mind so I can deal with the day to day stresses. I have come away with life tools and life long friends from around the world. I can’t wait for next years retreat ! David W.

The Retreat Centre:

Koh Samui is an ideal place for exploring yoga due to the outstanding natural beauty of the island. Most of Koh Samui is still considered unspoiled and unpolluted. Time on Koh Samui is an opportunity to relax, unwind, explore and focus on yourself. Enjoy the natural energy of palm trees, white sand, purple sunsets, turquoise waters, dense jungle, and exotic waterfalls. Despite being so easily accessible, Samui remains an idyllic island in the sun.
