Thank you Travel and Leisure Magazine for featuring Langkawi Yoga!

“There are plenty of Yoga retreats around southeast Asia, but this one seeks to combine improving your asanas with the great outdoors. It also takes a relaxed approach. “A yoga retreat, but a holiday too” is how Dorothy Ang, co-founder of Langkawi Yoga, describes the five day program aimed at novices near gurus and everyone in between. Held at a small resort nestled amid rice paddies, in the middle of Langkawi, the retreat includes twice-daily yoga classes, jungle treks, mangrove tours, massages and plenty of down time. “We spend a lot of time outdoors”, says Ang-a fact which helps students remove themselves from their daily lives.

Accommodations are in Malay style chalet equipped with kitchenettes and CD players (but no Tv’s). In keeping with yoga philosophy, meals are vegetarian, but you won’t leave hungry, a typical dinner night include lasagna or a selection of dishes from Malaysia’s myriad regions and finish with a bowl of apple crumble.”

    We visited Langkawi in February 2009 and stayed at the Westin for 8 days. Surrounded and inspired by athletes who had come to compete in the Iron Man competition we searched and found our own road to vitality at the Westin Spa and in particular our daily private yoga-classes given by one of the most wonderful teachers I ever met, Miss Dorothy Ang. It is amazing what just about a week of daily yoga can do for you especially sionce neither of us had been practising over the past 3 years. It helped us relax, gain vitality and energy to get us through most of 2009 back home in the stress full and over crowded western part of the Netherlands. It helped us change our nutrician, drinking, sleeping and exercising habits and make some really solid change decisions before we went back home. Dorothy is wonderful, warm, kind and patient; we can not imagine any one not enjoying her teaching and become inspired by her presence! Thanks Dorothy! Hope to see you around in Holland some where soon.
    Warmest greetings,
    Fred and Corine Schoon
