The Overview

There are plenty of yoga retreats around Southeast Asia, but this one seeks to combine improving your asanas with the great outdoors. It also takes a relaxed approach. “A yoga retreat, but a holiday too” is how Dorothy Ang, co-founder of Langkawi Yoga, describes the five-day programs aimed at novices, near-gurus and everyone in between. Held at a small resort nestled amid rice paddies in the middle of Langkawi, the retreat includes twice-daily yoga classes, jungle treks, mangrove tours, massages and plenty of down time. “We spend a lot of time outdoors,” says Ang—a fact that helps students remove themselves from the demands of daily life.

Accommodations are in Malay-style chalets equipped with kitchenettes and CD players (but no TV’s). In keeping with yoga’s philosophy, meals are vegetarian, but you won’t leave hungry: a typical three-course dinner might include lasagne or a selection of dishes from Malaysia’s myriad regions and finish with a bowl of apple crumble.

Cost: US$500, including accommodations, meals and airport transfer
