With comfortable cottages, daily yoga and meditation sessions and health-oriented meals, we are a small and intimate retreat center providing a peaceful environment allowing you to learn or deepen your practice of meditation and yoga, complementing your visits to the magnificent Angkor temples.
We are downtown Siem-reap in quiet gardens, yet near restaurants and easy access to temples.
Activities offered at the center
Your daily sessions start at the sound of the Gong! Just come 5 minutes early and preferably with an empty stomach.
We have wooden cottages with healthy meals, a daily schedule, and offer retreats and promotions: see our retreat schedule below.
Walk-in guests are welcome, just come to our reception 10 minutes before class.

This state of consciousness is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required.|
