9th Jivamukti Yoga Karma Retreat with Yogeswari and Cat Alip-Douglas
We will be staying at Angkor Village Resort, a hotel situated in a large botanical garden. Individual bungalows are lining a swimming pool of several hundred meters, meandering through the park in form of a snake. Yoga classes are held in a conference room, built in traditional South East Asian style, surrounded by tropical flowers and trees.
With a few exceptions, classes are held in the mornings and last three hours. All levels are welcome. Massages and other types of treatments and activities are available at the hotel.
It combines intensive Jivamukti Yoga workshops with visits to Angkor Wat and cultural exchanges with young Cambodian Yoga practitioners, who are beneficiaries of AZAHAR Foundation in Cambodia.
Siem Reap, the second largest city of Cambodia, is adjacent to the ruins of Angkor Wat, one of the most spectacular temple cities of the Hindu and Buddhist world, built by several generations of Khmer kings between the 8th and 12th centuries. Angkor Wat has been declared by the UNESCO a World Heritage Site, and its iconography brings Yogic and Buddhist teachings and mythology to life, which is particularly interesting for Yoga practitioners.
Yogeswari,based at the Jivamukti Yoga School in New York City, is one of the most senior teachers of the Jivamukti Yoga Method.
