…Relaxing and nourishing your mind, body and soul.
We all need to hit the pause button every now and then in order to get back to the highest and best version of ourselves.
Imagine taking time off from work, technology, colleagues or family to eat better, do yoga or just simply relax.
And why not develop some new empowering habits while you are it?
Rituals that can help you to be the very best version of yourself, surrounded by palm trees, sun and like minded people.
Thailand is one of the most beautiful and exotic destinations in the world.
From the moment we set foot in the country it was love at first sight, with the locals, the food and the culture!
And it didn’t take us long to discover the beautiful Island of Koh Samui, an island that is hard to forget, an island that still feels as though there are more beaches than people.
The sun in Thailand is a big plus point but it is the people, their smiles and their kindness that are sure to draw you back time and time again. Thailand is after all the land of smiles
The tropical fruit is to die for and the sea is crystal clear. Island life is tranquil and island pace relaxed.
Never mind that it took you so long to get here, you are exactly where you need to be, spend the time to get to know yourself on our Koh Samui retreat.

Fueling for health is just the start, we are designed to move around, exercise and regenerate.
Yoga is an excellent way to speed up our body’s natural ability to detox as well as increasing suppleness and strength.
For this retreat, we have invited an amazing local yoga teacher, Mike Cooper, with decades of experiences to lead these sessions and share her wisdom through the practice.
His classes are basically Hatha yoga classes incorporating the precision and alignment from Iyengar Yoga but with the softness of other styles, such as Sivananda.
Years of boxing and other strenuous sports made his body too tight but yoga softened and corrected his body to such an extent, that he now shares the knowledge of yoga to all his students in the hope that they can do the same.
His classes are suitable for beginners and beyond.
Iyengar Yoga (named after its creator Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar) is meant for all and is a way of life. Techniques masterminded by B.K.S. Iyengar focus on precision and alignment and can be used by anyone.‘Peace of mind is Happiness. Yoga shows the way'.
We can't wait to enjoy the beneficial powers of Yoga with Mike.

As you may know Thailand is famous for many things, especially Thai massages.
With that in mind we see it as our duty to ensure that you are able to experience this mind blowing or should I say back blowing experience for yourself.
In order for you to relax and feel fully at home at the retreat you will be able to book in anytime for a full body massage with our masseuse.
The first massage is a complimentary one on us and additional massages are available at an additional fee.
And when I said back blowing I meant it in the good sense but you could always ask for a lighter touch ;)
Denisa and Ollie are your hosts for your stay at Emperor House. Through their workshops and practices you'll explore meditations, mindfulness, presence, finding your truth and honouring your heart and soul.
You will also be able to book in with either of them for a 1 on 1 coaching or a healing session.
You can expect to leave each of these 1 on 1 sessions armed with new found tools and wisdom that you can bring in to your everyday life during and after the retreat.
It would be a shame to travel so far and not explore some of the local sights and scenes that Koh Samui has to offer.
Rest assured that there will be plenty of time to experience the island as a group and make the most of our time together
Your home for the week is a luxury Thai villa and the perfect blend between traditional and modern Asian decor.
There are en-suite, twin and double rooms available as well as 2x VIP apartments.
The villa is situated close to a sandy beach, with a palm tree view and stunning salt water swimming pool that you can use whenever you feel like it.
This retreat is so unique and amazing! One of the things I loved most is that you don't just have your juice and then have to find ways to manage your time.
You get to be involved in it, learn to cook, juice, blend...create a community around it with the others and truly bring out the best in you during the 7 days. Personally, I think that really helps you implement changes once you get back home!
The best thing I got out of this Retreat was the headspace it created, which allowed me to re-align myself.
It felt like I could finally experience the lightness of being and I was able to open my heart.
Besides that, I feel amazing and so much lighter! I've even lost some of the weight I wanted to get rid of for ages and kept it off.
I'm so grateful I took this week off and did the Second Nature Retreat. It's been a pivotal moment in journey.
