About a year ago my husband and I put together our “bucket list”. This list comprises of things that we want to do either individually or together as a couple. To date a few of the items have been checked off the list and as we start 2011 there are a few personal ones I want to mark off before the end of the year is complete.
Attending a yoga retreat is very high up on my list and while I admire all those who go on retreats and rough it I think the Goddess Sanctuary Retreat at the Six Senses Sanctuary in Phuket is definitely more my speed (um, who wouldn’t be able to resist staying in one of their private pool villas?!).
The retreat, which will be led by Nealy Fischer, will be held on 24-28 March and I can’t even imagine a more nicer backdrop then the Six Senses Sanctuary. During the 4 night/5 day getaway you will be spoiled rotten with the following:
– Daily Anusara yoga classes
– Spa cooking classes
– Daily 60 minute spa treatment (heaven – I say!)
– Private Villa accommodations with butler service
– 3 spa meals a day
– Car and boat transfers
When I sat down recently with Nealy (who by the way is lovely and so very personable) to learn more I was kind of fearful that the retreat would cost a fortune once she started to rattle off all the glorious things that you are pampered with. Knowing that rooms at Six Senses are not cheap I was expecting this to be a getaway I could only attend in my dreams and while it isn’t dirt cheap it is pretty well priced for the great 5 star service/experiences/treatments you will receive throughout your stay.
Early Bird Price (for those who register before 11 February 2011)

If you are interested in attending make sure you email Nealy at [email protected] with any questions you may have as she is more then happy to explain in more detail about the structure of the retreat. She will also be hosting a info session on the 24 January (more details to come next week!) which sounds like a great way to get to know her better. Or, if you are all ready to pull the trigger and book now you can register by emailing r[email protected].
Doesn’t this sound like a perfect solo getaway…. or better yet a relaxing long weekend away with the girls?!
