‘Journey Into Tradition’ with Marlene Koenig and Tara McCabe on a sacred yoga retreat in South East Asia. Explore beautiful waterfalls, see magical cultural sights and dine on locally-grown delicious organic food and exotic native fruit.

Our retreat begins in beautiful Koh Samui where we’ll spend 5 nights at a stunning cliff-side beachfront retreat with yoga shalas, organic restaurant, spa and private beach bungalows. We then travel by ferry to a secluded retreat on the island of Koh Phangan for 5 nights in traditional Thai bungalows.

Dive deeper into yoga with 2 classes each day and explore traditional practices and teachings based on the Eight Limbs Path and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

Tara McCabe And Marlene Koenig are senior teachers at Shakti Yoga. They are co-creators of the Shakti Yoga 200hr Teacher Training program along with Shakti Yoga founder, Sofia Artola.

They bring to their retreats a deep understanding of traditional Yoga practices and teachings. They guide with open minds to what is new and possible. They meet each one of their guests with the same open-mindedness, recognizing that each student is entering the practice from a different place, with a different history and story.

Be it a better understanding of anatomy and alignment, or tools to quieten the mind and find peace, Tara and Marlene are there to support you. Along with deep practice on their retreats, they also allow plenty of time for fun and laughter… each guest goes home refreshed and joyful with new skills to journey along their own path.

It is our goal as retreat facilitators to ensure everyone who takes this unique journey with us receives exactly what they need from this special, sacred time.
— Marlene Koenig
