venue

The Pyramid Yoga Center is uniquely located in the center of the jungle in Koh Phangan's North West. Home to two large, open-sided yoga studios (the pyramids), a fully functional restaurant, sound temple, multiple bungalows and more.

 

Located in the heart of Thai jungle, Pyramid Yoga boasts clean air and nature in its most pristine state. The purity of the air is fundamental to the Pyramid philosophy in general health and well-being, that focuses primarily on our breathing. Multiple cancer patients who have quickly pushed their dis-eases into remission can attest to this simple fact.

 

Pyramid Yoga is renowned for its structures: these giant Pyramid shaped studios that host a multitude of events and courses year round. Inspired by pyramids around the world, discovered by David, the founder of Pyramid Yoga Center on his yogic journeys, they are both symbols of that homage but also powerful meditational tools towards higher states of being - the ancient civilizations obviously understood this quite well.

 

Pyramid I is their signature space. As one of the islands largest yoga studios, it is capable of hosting large classes, dances, workshops and more. With 360 degree, open sides to the jungle this studio holds a special place to anyone fortunate to spend some time under its roof.

 

The restaurant serves only fresh, vegetarian dishes using locally sourced organic products as much as possible. Their own jungle setting allows natural access to coconuts all year round, but the greater island produce allows fresh fruit and vegetables to be sourced year round.

 

They have multiple bungalows on site, regardless of how long you're intending to stay on the island. The accommodation options are particularly important for the long courses, such as the retreats and teacher trainings, allowing students to stay on-site where basically all of their needs are taken care of. Yet they are always looking to rent to the many incoming travellers to Koh Phangan, for both long and short term stays.

The Sound Temple is the special place to let sounds, modern and ancient, come together. Purposely built to resonate and empower yogic chanting techniques, while also being the base for sound journeys and research in frequency and vibration. The temple was hand built using more than 50 tonnes of concrete and sand, resulting in a temple with impeccable harmonics and resonance. The inner walls have painted chakras in their particular directions, that illuminate under black light to create a very special scene at night. We're certain that the Sound Temple would be one of your favourite buildings on site.


WHAT MAKES THIS RETREAT SPECIAL

Daily rhythm includes but is not limited to: yoga, meditation, pranayama, kirtan, mudra,

chantingshamanic breathwork ceremony, rebirthing, sound healingcacao ceremony, laughing,

spending time in the nature, soaking in the sun, swimming and being held in the ocean, group waterflow healing session, eating delicious food and sleeping sweetly, bonding with beautiful beings and spontaneous adventures of immense JOY!

 

 

YOGA PRACTICE: Oursadhana (practice) incorporates asana, mantra, mudra, pranayama and meditation to explore our totality from the physical body to the subtle body, and to the inner most being. Yoga supports us to live in the very "core" of the existence, to live a fully embodied life that is a gift to be celebrated and embraced with joyThe alignment-based practice welcomes all levels and ages of students as they are guided into correct alignment of asana safely. Much focuses are on breath and energetic flow within.

 

 

DISCUSSION: We will have a plenty of time to learn and discuss about various topics. The topics include but are not limited to: Subtle body anatomy, Chakra-s, Pancha Maha Bhutas (5 Great Elements), Prana (energy), Bhakti (path of love), Mythology, Radical Affirmation, Tantra, Spiritual Heart, Self-Enquiry.

 

 

REBIRTHING with LIVE Handpan Music: Rebirthing is a conscious circular breathing technique to evolve and express the vital energy. It's used as a tool to expand and transform our consciousness. This simple yet powerful technique works holistically in our body. It helps to remove emotional blockages or traumas that no longer serve us. Positive affirmations will change some aspects of your past that till now limited your life and your full potential, you will make a clear decision of the way you want to live your present and future without fear and more clarity. The session is guided by the sound of handpan, which has a special frequency for healing benefit.

 

 

SHAMANIC BREATHWORK CEREMONY: Shamanic Breathwork is a special rhythmic breathing technique that will bring the expansion of the heart and deep connection within. The ceremony is guided and supported with various shamanic musical instruments to call back ancestral vibrations of healing. The intention is to guide your center of perception, to perceive the reality not from your mind, but from your heart. No filter of ego or fear, but only love. This is an experience of unconditional love and surrender that you can recall for all your life. We will have 2 ceremonies during the retreat.

 

 

KIRTAN: Call-and-response style chanting and collective expression with music, is so powerful to open the heart to the full, and experience the glimpse of our eternal self and the unconditional love. Sanskrit mantra is a Divine speech and vibration that helps to clear any blockages to become more free, open and vibrant. The outcome of Kirtan is an effortless state of Sahaja, the natural state of who we areSat, Chit, Ananda - Pure being-ness, Pure awareness, and Absolute Bliss that doesn't require any validation from outside. We are Blissful in the essence!

 

 

MEN'S/WOMEN'S CIRCLE: We will gather as men and as women, to share and discuss various topics including Tantric sexuality. It is a collective empowerment to remind the beauty of each other, and inspire each other in each unique embodiment.

 

CACAO CEREMONY: Cacao is a powerful plant medicine that opens the heart and helps us to release emotional blockages that no longer serve us, find forgiveness in ourselves and others, and show us the way forward if we are stuck or afraid of making the necessary life changes in order to move on. It also enables us to access stuck emotions, conditioning, patterns of behaviour and addictions that are buried deep in the unconscious. It is the perfect space to focus inwards so that we can become clearer of who we are, where we are going, and the opportunities available to us. Whether you’re looking for help shifting an emotional blockage, addiction, habit, conditioning, or you simply need to lift your spirits, the ceremony can provide the space and focus you need to re-align and re-connect with your heart and spirit.

teachers

AKARI TAMURA
Akari, originally from Japan, is an experienced yoga instructor, multi-instrumentalist, body worker and energy healer. Her self-enquiry began when she traveled around Southeast Asia and Africa by volunteering and helping people which led her discover the yoga system. She has been teaching asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy in different courses and training programs over the years, and her passion extends to chanting mantra, kirtan, music, mudra, mythology and stories.
"Yoga is a guidance tool to open our full potentials to say YES to life. Life is a gift to be embodied with joy. All the practices that we do, including asana, breathwork, chanting and music are the medicine that supports us on the journey, helping us to connect deeper within and around. Freedom and love for all beings arise from the churning ocean of the heart. The heart is the key for happiness in life. In Tantra, there is a saying of "Bhukti, Mukti." It means that worldly fulfillment and spiritual liberation go together, we can totally have a fulfilled material life with work, family, school, children, relationship etc, but at the same time we can be spiritually liberated within with compassion, love and ease."

DAVIDE D'AGOSTINO

 

Davide, originally from Italy, works with healing elements of water, air/breath, sound and music. He is a rebirthing & breathwork facilitator, Wataflow (water massage therapy) facilitator, multi-instrumentalist and a creator of Tantric Handpan music.
He was a master diving instructor and sailor in the past; he spent many years working and living in Caribbean Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and Red Sea. The lifestyle was challenging physically, mentally and spiritually, then some life-changing events followed. He was initiated to the study of Buddhism and different kinds of meditation. Following the inner calling, he continued his study on yoga, Tantra, rebirhting breathwork, and Wataflow healing therapy. With his years of experience of mastering the breath under water, and all the tools and practices that he has been benefited, he is dedicated to support and guide people to find happiness in themselves and in their life.
 
"Breath is a powerful healer that helps to release stuck energy and old patterns and transform the mind, and when you are held in the water, it is an experience of unconditional love itself. We need to be aware that water has a memory, we are all made out of water, and our intention is powerful. The same for air and all the other elements as we all are each little universe.

logistics & travel

The closest airport to Koh Phangan is Koh Samui. There are flights from Bangkok, Phuket and Singapore daily. As a general rule, Air Asia is an acceptable and affordable option flying between Bangkok and Ko Samui but the flight is relatively short so it wouldn't hurt to take a less expensive plane to save on some spending money. Also: flights from Bangkok to Surat Thani are cheap, and then its just a ferry ride over to Koh Phangan.

 

If you arrive in Bangkok and need to organize a ticket down to Koh Phangan, all you need do is take a stroll along the street to find a deal that suits you from any of the seemingly infinite hostels/travel agents/corner stalls. The trip is always the same and comprises of either an overnight bus or train followed by a ferry ride across the Gulf of Thailand to get you to Koh Phangan.

 

Sometimes you get to chose which port you arrive at on Koh Phangan in which case the closet port to Pyramid Yoga Centre is Thong Sala. However, if you don't have the option to choose, once you arrive on the island it is very easy to get to Haad Salad from wherever you land by taxi or moto-taxi.

 

Feel free to be in contact with us before you arrive, and we can help arrange your transport or potentially pick you up from the pier.
