Embodied Awakening Yoga Retreat

30 JULY – 3 AUGUST 2020

Spend 5 days in a beautiful sanctuary nestled in the middle of majestic mountains and rice fields of Chiang Mai, Thailand. This retreat is an embodied journey through a variety of modalities from Yoga, Meditation, holistic health, energetic healing, sound therapy and Thai massage. This yoga retreat is led by Kathy Gabriel and Samanta Duggal.



People often think about wellness in terms of physical health — nutrition, exercise, weight management, etc., but it is so much more. Wellness is a holistic integration of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, fuelling the body, engaging the mind, and nurturing the spirit. In this retreat you will learn various practices grounded in Traditional Hatha Yoga Principles, Vedic Wisdom, Myofascial Science and Embodied anatomy. Carefully put together to help you understand yourself through a holistic lens so you can can tap into the inherent intelligence of your body and its own transformative potential. 



This retreat offers you a mindful immersion into your inner self, to achieve profound holistic healing. During the retreat, you will be taken through mindful yoga flows, meditations, 5Rhythms dance experience, workshops on Thai bodywork, understanding the chakra system, introduction to Vedic chanting, sound baths and therapeutic practices, targeting relaxation and holistic healing.

Indulge with delicious, farm-to-table plant based meals and strengthen your practice of self-care and reflection to make space for your heart to expire all that you are, and all that you can be.

Amidst it all, find time to lounge by the pool and enjoy a herbal steam, dance barefoot under the moonlight, take a dip in nearby hot springs and discover the local area.

Give back to the local community in particular School of Life in Chiang Mai – an internally sponsored project in Thailand that provides home and care for children who live in difficult situations.

This retreat is designed to be accessible for anyone of any age, body size, physical fitness level, and experience.

Planning Your Trip
Dear friends and community, it wasn’t an easy decision to arrive to but alas, with so many changes happening to the world, reevaluations of 2022 and many decisions to make for the new year, we have decided to close Urban Yogis for now. It’s been quite a ride from our humble beginnings in 2013 from a basic pop up group in the Botanic Gardens to a vibrant collective of like-minded yogis invested in their health, connection and nature. It’s bittersweet for us to reminisce the good old times, especially during our pivot through the pandemic. We appreciate everyone who stuck by us through it all - changes to protocols, swabbing, check-ins, safe distancing - you name it! What a time! We’ve grown so much through it and have seen so many of you grow with us as well. There truly is a community of you, so willing to adapt with us through bad weather and ridiculous Covid-measures. For that, we are so grateful. Thank you for supporting us and for being our life-line during an unexpected time of our journey. At the root of Urban Yogis is learning and growing through the spirit of Yoga and Wellness. From immersive experiences like workshops and retreats, our mission was to help people find joy in self-inquiry and practice. We know that you will continue to do so and that makes our journey so worthwhile knowing that we played a small part in that too. Thank you for seeing us, believing us and showing up. We look forward to crossing paths with you in different ways. You can always reach out to Julie (IG: @julieyogatravel), Kathy (IG: @kathygabriel__) and the wonderful teaching team at Urban Yogis independently. For those of you who would like to share the last practice with us, we still have Suntec classes running through January 2023.
