Pimalai Resort & Spa, the luxury resort surrounded by nature on Koh Lanta, will be transformed into a stylish sanctuary of wellbeing this summer, when it hosts the inaugural “Zenergy” yoga festival in partnership with Flexi Lexi Fitness, the Bangkok-based yoga and activewear brand.
Hosted from 13-18 July 2019, Zenergy is being touted as the world’s first luxury yoga festival, offering a fully inclusive experience over five nights, featuring diverse yoga and fitness classes, along with Thai cultural journeys and other activities. The overall aim is to allow guests to stay in shape and find their own sense inner peace, whilst making new friends and immersing themselves in the breath-taking natural beauty of Koh Lanta.
Flexi Lexi Fitness’ products focus on fun, flexibility and functionality, with bright and bold designs that appeal to the new generation of yoga enthusiasts. The innovative Thai-born brand, which has been a global success story with exports across the world, also hosts its own yoga classes and retreats, and Pimalai provides the perfect setting to showcase this unique combination of fashion and fitness.
Zenergy classes will be led by seven of the world’s most famous yoga and fitness instructors, including Heart Maher from the USA, Singapore’s Carissa Lin, Kamilla Seljelid of Norway, China’s Seri Wang, Thailand’s Oum Kanyapat, and Joyce Fan and Trixie Isla-Velez, both from Hong Kong.
A series of yoga sessions will be hosted throughout this multi-day festival, including yin yoga, hatha yoga, headstands, backbends and heart-openers. In addition, Flexi Lexi will introduce fitness and cardio classes from all over the world, allowing guests to burn off some calories. These include “Pump It Up!” weight training, “Booty and the Beats” and “Power Abs”, plus HIIT classes, circuit training and more. Guests can also take part in Thai boxing classes, while tours to Koh Lanta’s old town will enable guests to experience genuine Thai culture.
