CAN THO, Vietnam — Yoga fans and wellness enthusiasts will learn to master essential poses while calming their minds and re-energizing their bodies with new, multiple-day healthy yoga retreat packages at Azerai Can Tho.
The retreats are for experienced practitioners and newcomers alike, and include 6 day/5 night (“Ultimate Yoga Retreat”) and 4 day/3 night (“Essential Yoga Getaway”) options. All retreats feature twice-daily yoga sessions, daily spa treatments and specially designed healthy “yogic menus” for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Located on a private islet on the Hau River in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta and accessible only by boat, Azerai Can Tho offers a peaceful natural setting for the retreats, with a breezy outdoor yoga pavilion overlooking mature banyan trees and lush greenery. The resort is secluded but close to the city of Can Tho.
“Azerai Can Tho is a popular destination for wellness holidays, and these new yoga retreats allow guests to embrace the natural splendor of our surroundings in an active, immersive and completely rejuvenating new way,” said General Manager Vuko Kralj.
All retreats begin with a wellness consultation and introductory yoga session on the first evening, followed by a healthy dinner at the resort’s Cafe.
Mornings typically begin with a special detox tea made with turmeric, ginger, lemongrass and orange peel (and optional lime juice and honey). Then it’s time for the first of the day’s two yoga sessions: a 60-minute dynamic hatha yoga and static asanas session.
During their stay, guests will have one breakfast served on board the resort’s luxury boat, as they take in the sights and smells of the Nine Dragon River Delta. All meals served as part of the healthy yoga retreats feature detailed calorie counts and dietary highlights, with most dishes including vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free options.
Each afternoon, guests will experience a different spa treatment, such as traditional Vietnamese oil therapy or a harmonious facial treatment, at The Azerai Spa, in addition to steam and sauna sessions to detoxify the body and relax the muscles. An evening 60-minute hatha yoga session caps each day before another healthy dinner at the Cafe.
Also included in the retreats are pranayama breathing practice, meditation sessions, a live cooking session, and herbal teas and snacks, including nourishing natural juices such as “Immune Booster,” made with spinach, celery, lemon, ginger and apple, and “Glowing Skin,” which features beetroot, orange, apple, cucumber and celery.
Healthy yoga packages are priced at 65,850,000 VND ($2,833 USD) for the “Ultimate Yoga Retreat” and 38,500,000 VND ($1,656 USD) for the “Essential Yoga Getaway.” For more information or reservations, please contact [email protected]
