Cleanse and Energize: Yoga and Pilates Retreat 30th April – 5th May 2019

Reunited and it feels so good….. We’re delighted to have Michelle and Mika back with us for this special retreat!

Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa, Koh Samui led by Heather Thomas Shalabi, Michelle Ricaille and Mika Childs.

Join Flex’s co-director Heather Thomas Shalabi, Michelle Ricaille, homeopath and yoga instructor, and Mika Childs, certified Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) practitioner, on an intimate getaway to cleanse and energize body and mind.


Start your day off with an energetic Pilates practice and a healthy breakfast, followed by the healing experiences of Kamalaya’s spa. After lunch, chill out by the beach or pool, kayak the lagoon, or indulge in signature wellness treatments especially handpicked by Heather. Your afternoon finishes with a holistic yoga practice, incorporating Hatha asanas, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra. Two Yamuna Body Rolling® workshops will be offered during the retreat (concentrating on upper and lower body) as well as one private Yamuna Body Rolling® session with Mika. Complete your dream day with a light but satisfying dinner.


Each morning Heather will lead a 90-minute morning Pilates session in beautiful Yantra Hall, focusing on core strength, flexibility, balance and alignment. Popular yoga instructor and certified homeopathy practitioner Michelle will lead a two-hour late afternoon yoga practice, designed to re-balance body and mind. Both Heather and Michelle will focus on four key areas: Core, Back/Spine, Shoulders and Hips.


With a deeper understanding of these two highly synergistic disciplines, participants will bring more to their mat in every subsequent practice, reaping huge physical benefits and minimizing injury potential…along with an inner glow that doesn’t fade!


In addition to daily practice, participants also partake in two restorative and therapeutic YBR workshops designed to teach self-healing techniques for key areas of the body. Mika will also give one private YPR session to each participant, for individual release and therapy. Participants also enjoy Kamalaya’s transformative wellness program with five treatments tailor made for this retreat, as well as the healthy, nourishing detox menu for which Kamalaya is renown.


Upon arrival, participants undergo a Bio Impedance Analysis and Wellness consultation with a Kamalaya naturopath, to set the course for his/her eating plan throughout the duration of the retreat.


We advise participants to travel to Koh Samui on the 30th April morning flight if possible, in order to have this important wellness consultation prior to the start of the retreat (Bangkok Airways Flight 874 departing 9:05 AM). (Option to take the Bangkok Air evening flight 806 on 30th April, arriving in time for supper.)


Bangkok Airways flies direct to/from Koh Samui/Hong Kong 2x per day. Please visit Bangkok Airways for the flight schedule. Please note: Day 5 on May 5th is a half-day program with one Pilates/yoga fusion practice in the morning; participants may return direct to HK on the afternoon flight offered by Bangkok Airways Flight 873 departing 17:25.
