YIN YOGA RETREAT VIETNAM
HOI AN, VIETNAM
SEPT 29th- OCT 4th 2017
Find emotional balance though yin yoga and creative writing!
Each day we start Yin Yoga with a different meridian/part of the body. Daily writing exercises will range from automatic writing and other activities designed to unlock your creativity as well as mindfulness exercises designed to still the mind. This will take place in the grounds of the resort as well as in the Old Town according the exercise.
You will have your days free to lounge by the pool or explore this incredible town. It is easy to walk around self-guided or you can book into the many tours that the resort runs. On the second day we will all come together for a river cruise down the Thu Bon River. Hoi An is famous for its lanterns, on the fourth day we will enjoy a lantern making workshop.
By the end of these five days you will feel balanced in both mind and body.

Hoi An is NOT easily accessible to the international tourist! in fact it is easier & cheaper for someone in Hanoi to fly Bangkok, Thailand than it is to fly to Danang and then by taxi or bus to Hoi An!
Arrival by airplane
By air to Danang and then bus/ taxi to Hoi An.
Danang airport only has VERY LIMITED international flights – most travellers are forced to fly thru Hanoi or HCMC
From Da Nang you can travel by bus, private car or can take a taxi to Hoi An(similarly from Hoi An to Da Nang). A taxi from the airport to Hoi An costs you about $20US.
