"Wow! What an experience!"
This is a truly magical place. It’s not down to one or two things, it’s everything that Vagabond encompasses.
The grounds are beautiful, of course, but it’s the people mainly and the culture that serves everyone.
Kobi & Pazit, Maayan, the teachers and volunteers enabled me, for the first time in my life to feel unjudged, to be free, to be silly, to dance like nobody is watching, to sing like nobody can hear. I became who I always was but have never acknowledged before.
The food also is outstanding! I’m vegan anyway so when I realised that it was fully vegan there I was so excited. The sheer joy of having 3 delicious, nutritious meals served to me every day was incredible!
This was my first, but not my last visit.
Each yoga lesson, meditation, movement class, morning circle and Dharma talk was so very precious.
Thank you Vagabond team, for everything!

"A good place to heal"
Excellent vegan food, some good yoga instructors, Mary Sarah and Amanda in particular I found outstanding , incredible nature and climate, a varied curriculum of classes with an emphasis on play, dance and opening up. There is without a doubt a magic to this place. I felt a lot of change take place in myself in the week that I spent there and observed a lot of changes in those around me

"Nurturing a peaceful mind within a beautiful community"
Found the space to slow down, experience and build strong fondations into yoga and meditations practices.
Surrounded by amazing scenaries, supported by beautiful souls i developed my inner child and home in my heart. What an incredibly fulfilling time.
Returning next week ;p
from Thailand, May 2018
Excellent insightful instructors. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I had 2 massages over the 2 weeks that were just amazing. What I learned was timely and much needed.
It was easy to go for walks to explore Kep and Kampot was a scooter ride away.
Thank you Vagabond!

"An amazing first retreat"
From the minute you walk into Vagabond you’re welcomed by everyone you come into contact with. All of the teachers are invested in getting to know everyone when they arrive and remembering/ modifying positions when injuries prevent certain asanas.
The food is incredible! After a few days I was missing sugar but had relatively no other cravings when switching to full vegan because 90% of the time you would think there was some sort of animal products to give the dish the creaminess- a week later and I’m still dreaming of the eggplant curry 💔
The accommodation is pretty basic but very homey. Everyone has their own fan and mosquito net and the option for a hot shower is there if you want it.
The classes are well structured and spaced out so you can do your own activities in between in town. The yoga classes are well suited for all abilities and you have the option to push your self or slow down for a breather if needed. I loved that every week had a different focus and throughout the week you gained the strength and openness to try something fun like inversions, arm balances, backbends, etc. Also you did a handful of different types of yoga each week; yin, kundalini, flow, etc.
Lastly, I walked into this retreat not knowing how to meditate and no grasp on the spirituality that yoga stems from. Kobi is very knowledgeable in tackling meditation in a way that all all levels can learn and try on their own.
I had an amazing month at Vagabond temple

"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!
from Australia, January 2018
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.

"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.

het ligt naast het Bokor Natuurpark.
Je kunt ook naar de kust lopen maar ik vond Kep niet de moeite waard.
Ik vertrok een dag eerder ivm reisplannen van vrienden en kreeg gemakkelijk 50 procent retour.

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.

"Really nice experience!!"
I really liked the yoga lessons and the Dharma-Talks: high quality!! And I liked beeing part of this nice and openminded community. Especially because it does not matter where you are coming from, or how you look like. Everyone seems to be welcome ☺
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. Thank you Pazit and Kobi for making it possible.
Life transformation complete! Loved my time at Vagabond Temple. Go if you can, stay as long as you can, minimum 7-10 days for true benefit.
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!

I stayed at The Vagabond Temple for one week and it was perfect! The atmosphere is unique and very warm and welcoming and makes you feel very safe. The Yoga and Meditation classes are fun and different every day so you don't get bored. It was a wonderful experience that I'll never forget! Thanks to the Vagabond Team!
