GLOW IN THAILAND.... Imagine waking up with the sounds of the waves in the distance. The smell of the sea, lemongrass, frangipani, coffee, and coconuts! A cup of coffee or tea awaits you before your morning yoga class. A colorful lunch follows your yoga class with delightful company. An afternoon to sunbathe, nap, read, write, draw, meditate, dance, or venture out to the beach with your new friends. Returning to a creative space to wake up the limbs and dancing in a safe, non judgemental, positive, and athletic contemporary dance class. After being warm and sweaty with a lot of positive laughter, we will cool down with a nice meditative stretch. Have a glass of wine paired with our colorful dinner. Winding down the night with good conversation and sharing stories.

We believe life should be balanced. Not too much of something not too little either. For a positive lifestyle change, one has to live a life that isn't restrictive and limiting. By being our authentic self, we are able to create a harmony between our inner and outer self.

 

For Glow in Thailand, we picked an awesome property in Koh Samui. 

 

About the property:

Bliss Getaway is a stunning villa style Boutique Resort with all the modern comforts in a peaceful, island environment. Bliss Getaway holds six luxury private villas in a closed residence. The villas are available in two or three-bedroom variations, each with private lounge and kitchen areas separate from the bedrooms. The complex offers a private yoga studio, swimming pool, sun deck and lounge Sala in the common area in front of the villas.

The complex is situated amongst the tropical coconut and palm trees, which have made Koh Samui world famous. Perfectly poised on Choengmon, Bliss Getaway is just minutes away from Choengmon beach and a quick drive from the airport as well as the island’s hotspots in Chaweng.

Meta

Meta Setiawan is an art lover and a traveling yogi. Her physical journey into yoga started long ago and she walked away from it many times. However, somehow she had always came back to the mat and was reunited with the Yogic values in the last few years. 

Meta has had many careers in this lifetime. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems, then worked as an IT auditor for several years. She then decided to pursue her first love of Dance and that eventually led to a Master’s in Arts Management and a career as an Arts Manager. 

Through her self-discovery journey, she found that love is the most important force in this word, especially love towards ourselves. She wishes to share this message and create a community of love through Yoga, Meditation and the creative arts. In December 2015 Meta decided to leave the working world to fully commit to serve the Community of Love and has since been teaching Yoga in Bandung (Indonesia) and Singapore. 

Meta loves dancing, traveling, going to see performances, and being in Nature. She also draws Mandalas and feels a deep connection with the Universe when she’s drawing her Mandalas.
