About this trip

A transformational island yoga immersion with luxurious spa and self-care inclusions...

High Vibe Collective co-founders Katrina Baccetti & Tankut Denker invite you to join us for an expansive and transformative 8 day yoga immersion in the breathtaking landscapes of Ko Samui, Thailand.

This retreat will invite you to dive deep within, harness your inner power, shed self-limiting patterns, and consciously step into your most abundant and empowered self. Our journey in Thailand will hold space for you to drop in, find clarity, align with your deepest intentions, and consciously create a life experience that aligns with your highest good.

Immerse yourself in the healing power of nature and mindfully explore the landscape of your inner world amidst the lush tropical surroundings of Ko Samui. Our group will find time to explore the island together, visiting local temples and shops, while immersing in the vibrant local culture.

Morning and afternoon practice sessions will offer yoga, pranayama, meditation, and self-reflection, allowing you to initiate profound change within your physical, mental, and energetic being. Through immersion in these integrative daily rituals, you'll have an opportunity to deepen your practice, expand your consciousness, and open your heart to fully experience and embrace the mystery and magic of life.

As you journey inward, you'll discover where your power lies, practice releasing old patterns, and learn to cultivate a profound sense of peace and well-being from within.

Drop in to ultimate bliss as you indulge in a personalized selection of rejuvenating spa & wellness treatments available at Samahita Retreat. Included in the retreat cost, each participant can receive up to 3 x 60-minute Total Self Care Therapies. Learn more about the Samahita's abundant wellness facilities, amenities, and spa treatments under the Samahita Total Self-Care Program section below. 

Over the course of 8 days, our retreat group will co-create a cohesive community and an empowering environment of unconditional love, inspiration, and connection. Share stories, laughter, and moments of growth as we form new friendships and connections that will last a lifetime.

Regardless of your current yoga experience, this retreat will help illuminate your path moving forward and inspire you to integrate essential yogic practices into your daily routines. Our time together will offer you the self-awareness tools and support you need to continue deepening your practice once you return home.

My first yoga retreat and it's everything I could hope for and more!! I felt unplugged and was able to focus inward on what's serving me in my day to day. Katrina and Tankut have a gift - what a beautiful experience.
By Elicia C for Heart Opening & Hot Springs Healing Retreat on Aug 01, 2023
Thank you Elicia! It was such a gift to enjoy this retreat weekend with you! Thank you for co-creating this retreat weekend with us! It was a joy to retreat, connect, and practice with you. Looking forward to practicing together again soon. Much love! ♡
A weekend that was uplifting, regenerative, and communal. I feel so refreshed and learned a lot from Tankut and Katrina. Their energy is so positive and supportive. The combination of the yoga, massage, pools, and plant medicine is really resetting for mind, body and spirit. One thing I was pleasantly surprised about was how good the food was at Harbin. I'll be back again next year!

This trip exceeded expectations. Katrina, Tankut and Elise were great coordinators and made us feel at home. In a very short time we grew our relationship together.

Thank you Metin! ♡ It was such a gift to meet you and practice together in Costa Rica. We're grateful to have co-created a space that felt like home - we felt it too! Thank you for contributing your wonderful and loving energy to this offering and for being an integral part of our community. We miss you! Sending love & hugs from San Francisco. We're looking forward to reconnecting again soon, whenever the time is right. Until then, wishing you all the best! ♡
Katrina and Tankut are lovely people and did a wonderful job with this retreat (the yurt is also really beautiful). It was a good balance of yoga, reflection, hot springs, etc. It was my first time doing hot/cold spring therapy and Katrina helped walk me through how to approach it in terms of mindset and breath. And Tankut is an amazing masseuse. Great retreat if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle for a while but also push yourself to experience personal growth.
By Emily E for Heart Opening & Hot Springs Healing Retreat on May 02, 2023
