Yoga Travel Destination: Agama – Thailand
Known for its benevolent individuals, stunning nourishment, and plenitude of yoga focuses, Thailand positions high on our rundown for yoga travel goals. The wonderful Thai island of Koh Phagnan has the leader site of the universal yoga school Agama Yoga. Putting together its establishments with respect to old heredities of Tantra Yoga, Agama made a bona fide practice focus in a tropical heaven, making it a well known goal for yoga explorers.
Koh Phagnan is a little island made acclaimed for its incredible full moon parties. When a month, on the full moon, Koh Phagnan emits with an inundation of gathering searchers. As the gathering goers return back to the territory, the island quiets down to its characteristic, tranquil balance.
Like wherever in Thailand, the general population are incredibly agreeable and conversational. Thailand is broadly known as “The Land of Smiles.”
The nourishment is delicious and moderate, for the most part costing around $2-$4 per supper. Being an island, the eateries and sustenance sellers of Koh Phagnan approach unimaginably crisp fish. The crab seared rice was heavenly! Veggie lover toll is fairly accessible in eateries and through restricted road merchants. Not all that neighborly for the yogic eating regimen, Thai road merchants love to BBQ and broil their meat. One choice is to buy your very own veggies at the Thongsala market, and cook it yourself.
To reach Koh Phagnan there are two or three choices. The expansive, neighboring island of Koh Samui is reachable via plane from Bangkok at a shabby cost. Voyagers would then take a short ship ride over to Koh Phagnan. Then again, one can take a train from Bangkok to Surat Thani, a port town in the south of Thailand. At that point you would take a 3 hour ship ride specifically to Koh Phagnan.
Our impression of the Agama yoga style is that the training gloated a very valid and reverential vitality. The asana practice was escalated in its physicality as mantras were rehashed all through. The school sympathetically offers a free class to newbies, so in case you’re on the island, try it out. A portrayal of Agama yoga from their site:
Agama is an extraordinary universal school offering its understudies the mystery otherworldly way of genuine Integral Yoga in a cutting edge frame. Situated in the credible, recondite heredities of Indian and Tibetan Tantra Yoga, Agama gives a refreshed and redesigned self-improvement framework whose hypothesis incorporates far reaching college level lessons, joined with those of other consecrated conventions from East and West, (for example, Taoism, Gnostic Christianity, Tibetan Buddhism, and Sufism).
Agama has numerous retreats and workshops consistently. Check their logbook and you will find that there are turning classes of Tantra, contemplation, Anusara yoga, detox programs, and yogic mending. My companion went to their detox program and said that it was troublesome however “groundbreaking.” If you truly appreciate the Agama style and need to take it to the following dimension, the school offers yoga educator preparing programs.
