"7 day yoga retreat at Vagabond Temple "

I liked the sense of community everyone seamed to share. The general atmosphere was open and light hearted. I really enjoyed staying in the tree house and had a great bunch of roommates. Also I had an amazing group meditation experience, had my first craniosacral massage, and thoroughly enjoyed the daily dharma talks.

"Amaizing New Year at Vagabond"

Is was a truly magical experience, meeting all the positive and interesting people, going through all the course together, physical and spiritual exercises... program organised in a very interesting way as well as doing all the activities you have some time to rest and relax...was the best decision for me to spend this new year in such a unique way, I will try to come back!

I loved meeting people from all over the world. I enjoyed the meditation and learning different forms of yoga that I had never tried. I enjoyed the energy and positive vibes that were released from the leaders and participants. I liked the routines and singing the mantras. It was a totally relaxing experience. The music was amazing and the dancing sessions were awesome. I enjoyed eating the vegan food, even though I adore meat, and not drinking alcohol was not as difficult as I thought! My body felt great and I lost a few kg. I've started drinking ginger and lemongrass tea because of the retreat. I've picked up some great recipes and good habits.

The kundalini yoga classes are so great. Also the Classes with Kobi are so good and very useful practice tricks, you can learn from him.

"Gratitude for Vagabond "

I loved the support that I received from my teachers and healers at Vagabond. The community that they have built has a way of helping you to release and recognize patterns that need to be healed. I felt so supported in such a warm and welcoming way. Everything and everyone was so gentle. The classes were incredibly informative and the teachers were incredibly knowledgeable about what they were teaching. The subjects and classes that were taught, were taught in such a way that it made it fun and easy to learn. With Pazit’s background in theater she helped everyone recognize that they don’t have to be serious all of the time which was great for building confidence. Her strength and dedication to helping people grow is something to be admired. Kobi has a gentle kindness that helps everyone to feel seen and accepted for who they truly are. They make the perfect duo! The main healer at vagabond carries such a presence of love that will help anyone to feel safe enough to let go and heal what needs to be healed. I highly recommend going beyond just the program into the healing sessions with Pazit, Kobi, or Mayan. They will help you in so many ways to unlock little parts of you, you didn’t know you had. Vagabond will change you in the most beautiful and unsuspecting ways!

"Very good food, but a lot of people"

I liked the food very much, even if I am not a vegan.

The vegetation inside the retreat makes it a relaxing place.

The volunteers are nice and helpful.

It was possible to receive free reiki from people taking the Reiki Level 2 training.

"A beautiful place to focus on you. "

A home away from home, a safe place for everyone. I can honestly say that Vagabond temple has helped me to feel as if I am finally able to shape the life that I want to have. I was a wondering traveller in desperate need of somewhere to help me work out what I was doing and why and the temple did so much more than that for me. I now have the skills I need to be able to bring me back when things start to get hard and focus on what is important at that moment in time. I came to the temple with the intention of staying for a week, keeping an open mind and to take on everything I could within that week; the week very quickly became just under a month and I am so happy that I chose to stay for that long.

Coming here whether it be for a week, month, two months you are entering into a safe, secure, happy, magical place where not only will your physical body be pushed but so will your mind. This is what kept me there, constantly learning new things from everyone!

That was the experience- now they have moved to Kep so speaking about the accommodation won't matter greatly but it was really lovely, the house we lived in very easily became a home. The only thing in the retreat I would say could have been improved (for those that stay a bit longer) was the food. Initially it was very nice but after being there for a while you notice it is quite over cooked and with it being a vegan diet, over cooking the vegetables will take all of the nutrients from it which in the long run is not healthy. On the plus side the vagaballs are very scrummy!!

Overall, my experience at Vagabond temple was beautiful, I have made long lasting friendships from all over the world, continue to do my self practice (which I have never done before) and am feeling so much clearer in my mind. Thank you so much for creating a space where our weirdness is accepted and encouraged. It has brightened my life in more ways than one. So much love in my heart.

Das Programm, der Spirit und die Community waren unschlagbar. Das Essen fein, gut bis sehr gut, oft etwas salzig (was aber angesichts der Hitze auch gut ist). Aber absolut kein Service bei dein einfachen dafür relativ teuren Einzelbungalows ist enttäuschend.

Vagabond Temple is a wonderful place to be to experience a community of like minded people from all over the world, some of which will become friends! Various yoga and meditation practices. A truly spiritual vibe with holistic treatments and a place where true transformation or clarity will be gained. The food is very good and staff/volunteers excellent.

You come with your doubts and your questions and you leave just as YOU ARE...Such a beautiful place with benevolent people. It's a place where each comes with its own story and injuries and where each can repair its soul. Thanks Pazit and Kobi for all your love...

This place has something really special. Just walking in you can feel the very positive vibe created by all those amazing people, from teachers, to staff and of course all the other participants. If you're looking for a deep connection to your true self, if you want to learn different meditation and yoga practice and have a healthy life, just let the power of love and light surround you!
