A BREATHTAKING AND TRANSFORMATIVE JOURNEY THROUGH THE STUNNING ANCIENT HEART OF CENTRAL VIETNAM. JOIN US FOR SEVEN DAYS OF GENTLE YOGA AND MINDFULNESS PERFECT FOR THE BEGINNER OR THOSE WANTING TO EXPLORE VIETNAM TO START OR CONTINUE ON THEIR WELLNESS JOURNEY.
You are invited to join Mindful Tribes and highly acclaimed, well loved Byron Bay based yoga teacher, nutritionist and Indigo Luna yoga activewear ambassador, Jane Holland, on this breathtaking twin centre, escorted yoga retreat journey through central Vietnam. Our holistic and spiritual journey through this fascinating country will showcase some of the most beautiful landscapes and important spiritual sites on this stunning coastline - arguably the most beautiful part of the country.
Here you will meet new friends and be guided by our beautiful Mindful Tribes Retreat Leader, Jane, who will encourage you through all aspects of your wellness journey with the opportunity of meeting the design duo behind the organic yoga activewear label, Indigo Luna. Upon arrival, you will be absolutely wowed by our stunning retreat home located in between Hue and Hoi An, an hour's drive from Danang airport. This retreat idyll is located next to the largest lagoon in Asia, dotted with emerald green isles in the sparkling blue waters of the lagoon. We will be nourishing our minds and bodies with beautiful hatha + yin yoga in utterly breathtaking locations from an overwater shala. These gentle forms of yoga are perfect for the beginner or those wanting to develop a deeper practice in yin and slow flow. Be inspired by the stunning Vietnamese landscape and bring breath and space to your life through our daily meditation practice. We will be surrounded by beautiful temples and lush flora, all whilst immersing ourselves in Vietnamese culture through our range of unique excursions and food experiences.
We will continue our journey at the world renowned and well-loved town of Hoi An, located on the Thu Bon river, which winds down to the beach below. This dreamy and beautiful town, is renowned for its well-preserved Ancient Town with its mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shop houses, temples, colourful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese houses and the iconic Japanese covered Bridge with its pagoda. Here we will enjoy the delights of this beautiful small city from wonderful restaurants, hiring bikes, wandering, shopping or just enjoying our stunning riverside location for our daily yoga practice.
If you are new to yoga and or a more dedicated yogi, this trip will be a transformative escorted journey run by our amazing MINDFUL TRIBES community.
Vedana Lagoon Resort & Spa, our first beautiful retreat home, is located half way between the ancient cities of Hue and Hoi An on the central coast of Vietnam. Upon arrival at Danang airport, you will be met by a driver and transferred the hour to the Vedana where you will be welcomed by our Mindful Tribes community for your first three nights.
Nestled in plush tropical gardens and next to the blue lagoon, this first retreat is a breathtakingly beautiful boutique stay. From the moment you arrive your breath will change pace, with the quiet and calm of the lagoon around you. The inviting swimming pool and day beds will allow you to relax and unwind and you can enjoy your complimentary massage in the inviting day spa. Our private overwater yoga shala is stunning and its setting totally divine for your transformational yoga practice. Each of our rooms at Vedana are located with an uninterrupted lagoon view to enjoy the sunset and let you mind wander whilst watching the local fishing boats bob by.
On bidding Vedana farewell, we will continue our journey onto the world famous world UNESCO city of Hoi An where we will stay at Ancient House Village. Here our peaceful location nestled near the canals, fields and waterways gives way to a picturesque and colourful town, easy to walk around. The rivers closeby lead to a stunning beach for you to enjoy at your leisure.
YOGA + NUTRITION
This is the perfect wellbeing retreat for those who are wanting to take a holiday for themselves and meet like minded travellers. Develop or learn a Yin and Hatha practice from your teacher, Jane, set in our beautiful yoga shalas. Jane will share her nutrition advice in her 'Nourish + Nutrition' workshop.
Maybe you have practiced a little at home or taken the odd class and want to know more. Or maybe you are already a Yin fan wanting to explore this more fully. Beginners are absolutely welcomed.
In addition to the group classes or workshops, there will be the option to book an exclusive one on one yoga session ( 1 hr ) and tailored nutrition plan ( 1 hr ) on retreat at your own cost.
WELLBEING + FOOD
Our retreats are so much more than yoga. From the minute you arrive you are looked after by our Mindful Tribes community with our unique experiences, workshops and lovingly designed menu. You will enjoy a complimentary full body and head massage at the retreat with the option to experiencing more as you so please.
Delicious, healthy food is always a big focus for all our retreats and with this beautiful retreat we aim to exceed all expectations with our stunning menu catering to most dietary requests. Our mainly vegetarian menu has been carefully curated with local, seasonal and fresh produce in mind.
We will showcase to our group a beautifully hidden Vietnam full of breathtaking lagoons, rugged landscapes, pristine beaches and world renowened historic cities. We will walk through rice paddy fields, take part in spiritual ceremonies and enjoy the company of new friends we have made. You can't help but relax and find a sense of purpose in your world.
Many of our travellers join our retreats on their own. If you are travelling solo and looking for a Vietnamese retreat for single travellers, we welcome you with a warm heart. We will buddy you up with another traveller of the same gender. Or for a supplement you can have you own room. Easy!
