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 ideal escape for those yogis on your roster.

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 banyan trees and lush greenery. The resort is secluded but close to the city of Can Tho.

The retreats are for experienced practitioners and newcomers alike, and include 6-day Ultimate Yoga Retreat and the 4-day 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.

“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 in press materials.

All retreats begin with a wellness consultation and an introductory yoga session on the first evening, followed by a healthy dinner at the resort’s Cafe.

Mornings 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.

In addition, each afternoon, guests are pampered with 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 ends each day before another healthy dinner at the Cafe.

Also included in the retreats are pranayama breathing practices, meditation sessions, a live cooking session, and herbal teas and snacks including nourishing natural juices such as an 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 $2,833 for the Ultimate Yoga Retreat and $1,656 for the Essential Yoga Getaway.
