    Review by Rachael Harris from Thailand

    A beautiful place to focus on you.

    PROS Pros: 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.

    "Vagabond temple is a good place for newbies in yoga and meditation who are still discovering and trying to make sense out of spirituality. It offers basic beginners yoga classes and very general talks about spiritually. Dharma talks were a disguise for NLP techniques and setting up the goals but with very little understanding of how to apply it in life. Group work was an excuse for a social games that created a friendly atmosphere and closer connection among participants. "

    "The retreat doesn't fit anyone who already has an experience and is looking for a yoga retreat to deepen his practice. The accommodation is very basic, and for the asking price is almost outrageous. For 20 USD more I had my own room with bath and shower in Sicily in Europe (and 2x / day 90-minute advanced yoga class) while here I was stuck in an outdoor hut that is basically a bungalow squeezed on a dirt patch around the house. The hygienic conditions in which the food preparation takes place is appalling. It is literally behind the outdoor toilet/shower, next to yoga hall. Not to mention the presence of the rats drawn in by the food rests found on the ground."

    "The yoga hall is an annex to the main house and is divided in two parts. The right side of the yoga hall is constructed of small hard tiles, that will hurt your knees or even back if lying for an extended period of the time. Yoga material is worn out, cushions look like they were not washed since years. The whole place looks neglected and worn down, there is a lack of attention and love that is usually a main attribute when you go to places like this. "

    "The temple is located in a small neighborhood filled with trash behind the main road parallel to the Independence beach. On their website they talk about closeness to the beach, there is even a photo of people on the beach while in reality you need to walk down to the main street and literally walk through the Palace hotel and use the beach that belongs to the hotel. The whole area along the coastline leading to the center of town is constructed by luxury hotels and casinos, nothing to do with an idea of yoga, meditation or spirituality. "

    "Majority of participants are young people who are backpacking through Asia and are open minded and is usually their first yoga retreat in life, so they are easily impressed. The volunteers that are restlessly working in the office are extremely kind and helpful. Overall, I think there are many other places in Asia who offer better quality lodging and yoga classes than Vagabond temple in Sihanoukville. "

    "Management Response from Vagabond Temple:"

    "Thank you for your review, As a spiritual retreat we are always aspiring to upgrade our services and facilities."

    "Vagabond Temple is a community based yoga and meditation retreat for travelers from around the world. Our guests span a wide range of ages and backgrounds from back-packers to career professionals as well as varying levels in yoga and meditation. We offer a variety of yoga and meditation classes throughout the day, mostly from beginner to intermediate levels. "

    "We offer spiritual talks (Dharma talks) on a different topic each week to deepen the understanding of the yoga and meditation practices and to inspire self reflection. We are sorry to hear that the topic that we focused on during your stay did not appeal to your needs."

    "In keeping with our spiritual values, our facilities are basic but clean and comfortable. The kitchen and toilets are cleaned thoroughly every two hours and we maintain a high standard of hygiene in our food preparation. "

    "Our center is located in a small neighborhood (however, close to downtown Sihanoukville) and it is a 5 minute walk from several beaches that make up Independence Beach. Many of our guests prefer to access the beach through a nearby hotel, as they have beach chairs and a place to order food or juice. If you prefer, you can walk directly to the public beach area from the main road. Sadly, awareness for the environment is very low throughout Asia. Our center is involved with several cleaning and education projects to raise the local awareness for cleanliness of the neighborhood and environmental issues. "

    "We believe that we offer fair prices for our program which includes 3 vegan meals and 5 classes throughout the day. Our center is amongst the cheapest retreats in Asia. We believe that our teachings are valuable for those who want to grow and evolve, as well as a great opportunity to connect with yourself and others on a deeper level. Many of our guests have benefited from our program to embark on and deepen positive journeys of healing, self-discovery and transformation during the retreat and after returning home. We do our best to maintain a strong international community to provide continued support after the retreat. "

    "We understand that our program is not for everyone and we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. We wish you would have shared your feelings and concerns with us during your stay and allowed us to create a solution for you. Thank you for the review and please know that we will reflect on your words and make the necessary changes to improve. "

    "We wish you the best. Love and light, Vagabond Temple team."

    "Vagabond temple appears from the outset to be a basic place to stay but within lies something magical. Having just completed the two month community member program I cannot express my thanks enough to Kobi, Pazit and the supportive team. For those looking to discover the tools from within for healing, lightness or strength I cannot recommend the temple enough. Vagabond is such a safe zone to let go and really be yourself whilst being challenged by a variety of yoga practices and Dharma. For the community, guidance and practice."

    "My trip to the Vagabond Temple was great. I loved it. Kobi and Pazit who own and run the retreat are amazing people and the people they attract are amazing as well. It's such a positive vibe. Cambodia is a developing country and you have to expect things to be different to what they are at home. But you have three square meals a day, beautiful fresh sugarcane juice on site and great teachers for yoga, dharma and meditation. You also have access to structural integration, reiki, life coaching and more. It really is a well rounded school, because you learn so much and have the opportunity to give back to the community. I would go back in a heart beat."

Rooms are Comfy and clean. Be ready for some stiff muscles after invigorating Vinyasa yoga, and be ready for spiritual mind-opening Dharma talks every day. I totally recommend this experience."

The people at this place have been amazing and there is a warm atmosphere where you always feel welcomed regardless who you are talking to. I have learned a lot at this place, it is both a journey for your body and soul. I would really recommend anyone to visit this wonderful place. "

    "I booked a 15 day yoga retreat at Vagabond Temple and was fairly new to yoga and didn't really know what to expect. When I arrived I was welcomed with open arms by Pazit, Kobe and the wonderful staff they have working there. I learned so much in the 15 days I was there well beyond just yoga moves. If I didn't have onward travel plans I would have extended my stay and I hope that I'll be able to return to Vagabond Temple again. All the teacher are knowledgeable and very helpful. I couldn't have imagined a better experience. This place is full of love, warmth and understanding. If your open to a spiritual experience you will definitely find it here. Kobe and Pazit really open my mind to another way of living and I'm forever grateful! So many thanks to Kobe and Pazit!!"

    "Everybody in Vagabond Temple is beautiful! I joined the yoga for 4nights. I felt very grateful to find this camp, and it was enjoyable. Everyones participation made me feel motivated to attend the yoga class everyday. Teachers are great too. I took a private session for healing and reiki respectively. Healing sessions took for is around two hours and the reiki for around an hour, which both gave me new directions and useful advices. Pazits reiki can help you relax and her advise to me is really effective. Peters healing on the other hand landed me to the very peaceful reach. It was always such a pleasure to talk with Peter, you will know how to feel calm and gentle, young and happy according to him. I wish next time I would have longer time to enjoy more spiritual learnings.. and also the dancing meditation and the Thai massage class were fun!I left late and in a rush, I feel sorry I wasnt able to say a formal goodbye..For the accommodation, the firat night here was tough to fall asleep because of the heat in the bedroom. The following nights were better as the weather gets cooler. And mosquitos are quite an issue for me I still got a lot of bites even after I put on anti-mosquito spray. Also, there is not enough yoga mat for all the participants, so if I wont arrive early for the yoga class, there is a chance that no more mat will be available. But volunteers there would take care of you. Some yoga mats needs to be replaced for a new ones too.And for the food, vegetarian meals are all delicious and healthy!"

    "I had an amazing time at Vagabond Temple. There is a large variety of courses they offer, great teachers with a lot of knowledge, travelers from all over the world that come to visit here and you experience a lot of freedom while being here. You can have time for yourself, but if you want also make a lot of new and great friends. The ambiance overall is very down to earth and nice. There are lots of possibilities to discuss anything that is bothering you and you want to work on for yourself (but you don't have to). Three times a day you get wonderful vegan food. I have experienced my stay at vagabonds as a great way to make some new positive habits for myself and take it with me in my daily life back home. Hope you have a great day!"

It was a rewarding experience that I recommend to anyone who is into yoga."

    "I was at the Vagabond Temple for a 10-days Christmas Retreat and it´s the best vacation I´ve ever had! The place, the people, the food and the yoga and meditation - all of it nothing less than amazing! Extremely skilled yoga teachers. No need to be experienced to participate - but if you are you will also feel challenged and learn a lot. Great variations in both yoga and meditation classes. Fantastic all vegan food. Extra plus: The beautiful beach is just a 2 minute walk away. I am most certainly coming back to the Vagabond Temple. Simply loved it!"

The yoga sessions and meditation were excellent and I left feeling so invigorated and full of love and joy. The vegan food was great and it was lovely having the gorgeously quiet independence beach just a stone and throw away. I have been away from Vagabond Temple for a week now and I wish I were still there!"

    "Wow, where do I even begin? Home away from home. This is a place of transformation and healing. Where strangers become family in only a matter of days. Pazit and Cobi, as well as the rest of the vagabond staff, make this place stand out from the many other places I have been. They have the most benign souls. Cobi is very wise, one of the most loving beings I have had the pleasure to meet. Might I add with quite the sense of humor. I could seriously sit and listen to Cobi talk for hours! His dharma talks are some of the best! Pazit as well, though I didn't get to know her as well this time around for she was teaching reiki courses during my stay. They are both such amazing beings and the energy of the both of them will open your heart instantly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. The food, the classes, yoga, the energy, the love. It's all there. I saw so many beautiful transformations happening there. Including one in myself. I myself plan to re-visit this place. WELL worth the time and money to make a stop here if you are traveling Cambodia."

    "Vagabond Temple was an amazing experience! A sanctuary in the middle of hustle and bustle of Sihanoukville. The fun-loving energy wraps around you like it was home away from home. Pazit and Kobi have created a community inviting those who wish to deepen their practice, learn some new things, various teachers wishing to share their teachings and just a place to get away from it all to heal your soul. The vegan food was memorable, the guided meditations every day were amazing, accomodations comfortable. I loved the easy going fun sense of humour Pazit and Kobi embody. I always felt like I was welcome with open arms. I will definitely be back to see what else they have up their sleeve!"

    "I spent almost two months in the VBT as a community member. When I arrived I was very excited. At an age of 40, I was frightened I would become an old aunt in the group. I was happy to learn that the other participants were all ages, both genders with different backgrounds. I met lovely people on their journey, someone was traveling for a long time and dropped in for a few days. Others came just for this retreat. At first, I was challenged by the accommodations. I was also struggling to enjoy the vegan food. When I came was used to eating meat, lots of sugar and a lot of flavors. During the stay, I started to love my bed and appreciate the food. It was a great experience to learn how to adjust. I ended up eating some meals outside the VBT, this was also related to the need of spending time alone and outside of the temple. During the day we had teachings about Yoga/Meditation and how it affects you. We had the most amazing Yoga lessons. (Before I came I had done some yoga, a lesson once in a while AND I got just the Yoga lessons (twice a day) I hoped for). Every evening we had different meditations. As a community member you get a project. The VBT staff gave us different options. I went to a school nearby and helped out. We had the most lovely and time with the locals and the kids. I belive they gave me more..... During my stay, I had very powerful Reiki healing. Lovely massage and Kinesio taping. (This was so helpful, it changed me and healed me in body and mind). Thanks a lot to the true, proffesional, engaged VBT team."

The daily program is really amazing but not too strict- there is lots of free time do read/ go to the beach etc. during the day. But the program itself is great. Exceptional yoga, amazingly nourishing food, lots of meditation and really enlightening talks. Also, the price is very reasonable for a retreat! Pazit and Kobi are wonderful humans and your life will be better for having met them."

    "Doing the detox program at Vagabond Temple was the best decision I made in a long time! I have been trying to do a 7-day fast by myself at home for quite a long time but never really succeeded, but when I found this detox program online I wanted to give it another try with professional support and did not regret it. In fact, it has been a life changing experience for me and the initially planned seven days of detox turned out to be so good for my body and soul that I ended up prolonging to a total of 10 days of fasting."

    "Words do little in describing the gratitude I have for teachers who provide gems of wisdom in a completely ego-less way. They taught in complete selflessness, hold a space for individuals to discover their true nature, and who by their very being ignite transformation in those who are blessed to surround them. I have the deepest respect for Kobi and Pazit at Vagabond Temple in Cambodia, whom are doing exactly this. I was so fortunate to have experienced the unique community they have created in Sihanoukville. Individuals from all over the world, from all walks of life, are drawn to their simple yet beautiful center where they are provided the rare opportunity to actively participate in the path of Yoga. They have created a space for individuals to embark on the journey of self-discovery and to go deeper into whatever it may be that brings them joy. On the mat, Kobi and Pazit reminded us that poses or kriyas are a way to open our bodies and energetic channels in preparation for meditation. Whether practicing for the first time or for twenty years, they have created a space for everyone to meet themselves honestly, and with compassion, wherever they are in their practice. Off of the mat, Yoga is watering the plants, picking up garbage from the beach, dancing, mindful eating, sharing ideas with new friends, singing karaoke, creating art, supporting one another and being supported by the community of Yogis surrounding you."

Different yoga styles, life coaching, and so many things that I have to fit in my life now! Met amazing people, every second was a crown investment in my physique, future and present.

    "Leaving the Vagabond Temple today after completing two amazing yoga and meditation retreats was more difficult than I thought it would be. On one hand, I am leaving with a light heart, happy for being so much closer on my path of loving and accepting myself. On the other, I cannot help thinking about how I am going to miss the way we all supported each other, Kobi and Pazit's gentle guidance and beautiful life lessons, Jason's morning yoga, Michal's Reiki, Peter's soul healing, Page's pranic healing and Tevey's vegan cooking. I will miss all the jokes, games, beach getaways, good music, and the way we were always there for each other! I am grateful for all the lessons I have learned, for becoming more in touch with my true self, with what is important to me, and for walking out a stronger person than I was twenty days ago. "

    "Words cannot really describe how amazing my experience was in Vagabond temple. I was planning to stay for few days and end up there for almost a month. Pazit and Kobi create a magical place and I will highly recommend to anyone! The classes are suitable for everyone so it does not matter if you are beginner or advance. They have two yoga classes, dharma talks, and meditation every day. They also offer individual treatments which I will highly recommend reiki and the journey by Pazit, life coaching by Kobi and the Thai massage by Peter. Either if you stays for few days or weeks you will not regret. If you want to deepen your meditation and yoga practice this is the place for you! Thanks Pazit and Kobi for creating such a magical place and for making this world a better place."

I was initially a little nervous, being an 'older' non- yogi traveller, however I was made to feel so welcome from the moment I arrived. After only a few days I felt stronger on every level because of the amazing yoga and meditation which was for about 3-4 hours every day and each day was different. The temple offers an array of healing modalities to complement the program at very reasonable rates. I realised instantly that monetary gain was not the aim here, which is rare in today's world. The vegan food was mostly delicious but when it became a bit repetitive ,it was easy to supplement with local food outside the premises. The location is 5 minutes from a gorgeous beach so it was fab to have a swim after an intense yoga session. The temple itself had a peaceful, zen feel to it which resonated and reverberated with everyone there. The participants came from every walk of life as did the volunteers and staff, who were friendly and inclusive. I reserve the greatest accolade for the owners who were also the yoga and meditation teachers. Kobi and Pazit are wonderful,warm spiritual people whose goal is to instill self-love and a higher collective consciousness... Very lofty aims but they succeed in doing just that! I was so impressed with their non- judgmental acceptance and their breadth of knowledge. As cliched as it sounds, I really did 'feel the love' and came away from the retreat feeling reset, recharged and enriched. A truly enchanting experience and one that I would highly recommend. Thank you all!"

    "I needed a little rest and re-centering after 4.5 months of travel, and Vagabond Temple was just the place! The intention of all things here is so pure and lovely. I went looking to have some time to myself and came away feeling very grateful and loved, from the sense that comes from meeting many like minded individuals that became fast friends. The sense of community that they have created and attract is so wonderful. Kobi, Pazit and all of their volunteers are insightful, warm, connected and good hearted. The vegan food was very tasty and satisfying. It is a beautiful place to find your peace, learn more about spirituality, relax and have fun. There is a schedule that they follow every day, that offers a lot of variety. It is well thought out and offers lots of ability for self growth, even if you are planning to stay for a long time. For me it was perfect and although I was only there for 5 days, I definitely felt renewed when the time came to leave. I only wished I could have stayed longer! The temple and its environment had so much more to offer me. Maybe next time, I'll be able to go for longer!"

    "The Vagabond Temple is just an awesome place. If you want to relax, you are right here. If you want to understand yourself deeper and work with yourself, you are right here too. Kobi and Pazit are amazing human beings, who know themselves damn good, and they are offering their knowledge and love for everyone who is asking for it. But don't believe me, go and experience yourself!"

    "I stayed for three nights in the temple and had a great time there. I felt very welcome, most people socialize with others and several times a day the team insured socializing by little games and tasks with the whole group. I consider the Temple to be a very modern and young place where you can enjoy your time and learn to smile and to appreciate others - even though the focus lays on practicing yoga and meditation. Nevertheless there is enough time and space for you to be by yourself. The yoga classes vary in their style but I enjoyed all of them. The dharma talk helps a lot to understand about yoga and meditation and helps you to learn. On my last day I managed to concentrate on my breath while mediating for the first time, and this was truly due to Pazit's explanations and help. I would like to come back to this place and stay for a longer period."

    "I stayed here for three weeks and at the end I didn't want to leave anymore. The teachers are very experienced and know what they are doing. Also they try to help you in every possible way. The vibe at the retreat is very nice too. It's really a little community and everyone is very friendly towards each other and helping each other out. Not one single time I felt judged by anyone here and I felt so relaxed being myself. It's been truly amazing here!"

    "Words do little in describing the gratitude I have for teachers who provide gems of wisdom in a completely ego-less way; teachers who in complete selflessness, hold a space for individuals to discover their true nature, and who by their very being ignite transformation in those who are blessed to surround them. I have the deepest respect for Kobi and Pazit at Vagabond Temple in Cambodia, whom are doing exactly this. I was so fortunate to have experienced the unique community they have created in Sihanoukville. Individuals from all over the world, from all walks of life, are drawn to their simple yet beautiful center where they are provided the rare opportunity to actively participate in the path of Yoga. They have created a space for individuals to embark on the journey of self-discovery and to go deeper into whatever it may be that brings them joy. On the mat, Kobi and Pazit reminded us that poses or kriyas are a way to open our bodies and energetic channels in preparation for meditation. Whether practicing for the first time or for twenty years, they have created a space for everyone to meet themselves honestly, and with compassion, wherever they are in their practice. Off of the mat, Yoga is watering the plants, picking up garbage from the beach, dancing, mindful eating, sharing ideas with new friends, singing karaoke, creating art, supporting one another and being supported by the community of Yogis surrounding you."

    "We stayed at the Vagabond Temple just for a week without having any expectations. What happened after just few days was, that we felt in love with the place, with the people, with the energy, with yoga, especially with kundalini, with the talks, the meditations and with the food. My husband have never practiced yoga before and neither I nor he had experience in meditation. Through the open minded, non-judgemental, non-pushing way Pazit and Kobi invite you on a spiritual journey opened a complete new horizons for us. The result was, we joined the community program and became community members for 2 months. The time spent at the Vagabond Temple changed us and our perspective on life. It was a beautiful start of a deep meaningful journey within. We are deeply thankful to everybody who was involved in our growing process. P.S. Pazit is very experienced Reiki healer and Kobi does very professional Thai and deep tissue massages. Don't miss booking some sessions when you are there. Also, I recommend the life couching classes of both of them and the "soul healing" done by Peter."

    "I spent a week at the Vagabond Temple. Initially I was totally scared to go here. I thought it would be full of flexible people who could meditate very easily and were very much in touch and found themselves (as cliche as that sounds) ,but it's not. There were all walks of life there at different life stages and abilities. All trying to get something different out of it. For me it was perfect. Honestly I was terrified walking in there. Within 10 minutes my anxiety had been relieved by a warm, friendly welcome. The atmosphere is literally just that! All the time. I did this retreat half way through my backpacking experience. I wanted to get better at meditation, as I understand the benefits to be incredible, and to help with my own mental health and anxiety. I had tried mediation myself for the last year and though it was basically impossible for me. I was pretty frustrated with myself at meditation. However, Kobi (one of the owners) is incredible at guided mediation and taught me skills that has enabled me to meditate better and on my own. Even if I did only manage it for a few minutes half of the time. As for yoga. I was worse. Totally ridged with poor posture and zero flexibility. Currently there is a lovely teacher called Teresa Richard. She taught me it's okay to listen to my body and adapt the moves to what feels right to me. We all have different body's at the end of the day. And I can't touch my toes. But I don't care anymore. One day I will be able to do it.. But right now it feels good just using props that I need and my body feels incredible and happy for it! Most of all I learnt how yoga and mediation compliment each other. I will be carrying on everything I have learnt .. hopefully for my lifetime. Before I waffle more.Food was great, healthy and warm. A nice change from all the backpacking food I have been consuming. The staff were super friendly, beds were comfortable. Thickest mattress I've had in south east Asia :) Highly recommend the Vagabond Temple. I've learnt lots and so thankful for this place!"

    "Words can't describe how grateful I am of stumbling across Vagabond Temple. I am very new to practicing yoga and was rather apprehensive of trying a retreat, I wasn't sure what to expect or what would be expected of me. It turns out all I had to do was smile and breath. Vagabond itself has a lovely, calm energy. The beautiful people who run the temple and contribute to running the temple are incredibly welcoming, immediately put you at ease and actually just appreciate your presence. The food was delicious and in abundance. I cannot thank Kobi, Peter and Theresa enough. I met incredible people who will be friends for life. I had such a great time. 100% you will not regret going, the only regret is that you won't have booked enough days. I am definitely, definitely, definitely going back. Until next time, namaste."

At the beginning I was a bit 'confused', but sooner than later I realized it was the place to BE... to be myself! I had an incredible experience, meeting interesting people, learning new things and discovering myself... all of it thanks to the amazing people that everyday make it possible :) I strongly felt to be part of something special and to make my contribution to it...and most of all I felt supported and encouraged to be myself, no matter what! The Cambodia chapter is now closed...but the Vagabond Temple home is now open... for everybody, I highly recommend to make yourself this amazing gift."

    "I had just two days to spend at the center and I wished I had longer. I had some background practice in meditation and (to a lesser extent), yoga. I found the teachings covered a broad range of topics and skill levels. I particularly loved the Yin yoga session, the dharma talks, and the couple's tantra tuition (which is an information / clothed exercise session only, not a live sex class, in case you are worried!). "

    "I would suggest to future guests to prepare for the visit with some introductory reading or practice in yoga and meditation, so you have some idea of what to expect. My partner had less exposure to the material and was a bit misguided on what to expect (e.g. because of the name of the center he was picturing monks in orange robes and a traditional temple). Whereas, for me, the center was almost exactly what I had in mind and I was thrilled with the experience there. "

    "The living facilities are basic (e.g. shared bathroom an toilet, no air conditioning), so depending upon the style of accommodation you are accustomed to, it may be better to stay offsite and join for the day program, which is what we did. I am not vegan, but I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the majority of the food served."

    "Thank you to the team at Vagabond Temple for allowing us to come, even with heavy bookings and limited space. I am very grateful for the moments of awakening I was able to achieve in such a short stay, and I would love to come back for a longer stay to see what other insights are possible!"

    "Vagabond Temple is a magical oasis for any traveller who is looking to learn or deepen their yoga or mediation practice. It’s a place where I could finally breathe amidst many weeks of travelling. I fell in love with the energy of the temple and its beautiful people, smiling became contagious, a love for meditation blossomed, and I discovered the magic of Kundalini yoga. Pazit and Kobi are so welcoming and made the whole experience very special, you feel as if you have arrived home. So many of us kept extending our stay at the temple because we loved it so much. Each day was a new adventure. I will always remember my time at Vagabond Temple and I hope to one day return for a longer stay."

The yoga lessons are great, with a good variety, good for beginners but also challenging even for people who have been into yoga for a while. This place is for everyone!

The yoga was accommodating for both experienced yogis and beginners like me. I haven't eaten so well (or so much) in months. Such healthy poops while I was here. The proximity to the beach was ideal. The introduction to meditation and spirituality was fun and very informative. I'll definitely try to incorporate bits and pieces of what I learned at Vagabond into my everyday life on the road and also at home. My experience will stay with me well into the future and I definitely recommend anyone with interest to not hesitate to sign up for a week or two!!"

The yoga and meditation was wonderful, well taught and I felt myself improve day by day. The food was delicious and I felt healthier after being there just a couple of days. Kobi and Pazit are a gorgeous couple who were both so full of warmth, compassion and understanding. Just being around them made you feel like you were doing the right thing by being there at the Vegabond Temple.I highly recommend this place.

    "Vagabonds temple is a little spiritual oasis hidden in the town of Sihanoukville. It is an incredible retreat that gives you the tools to slow down and look within yourself to ground your mind and approach life with a more calming and fulfilling way. After getting to Vagabonds and settling in I immediately knew my initial 5 day stay was going to be too short and decided to extend my time to just under 2 weeks.I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone ready to take some time out of their lives for self-discovery. This place is full of compassionate people whom are so open to assist one another along our spiritual journeys. Pazit and Kobi are incredible hands on owners who genuinely love Vagabonds and anyone who happens to step through the door.From the super delicious vegan meals to the incredible people and classes, this place has been a true highlight along my trip so far. Try this place out, you wont be disappointed...and you might even find yourself extending your stay!"

    "The Vagabond temple is a very unique and special place. Whilst it remains the most intense environment I have ever experienced, it is also easy to slip away and relax, both within the home and outside in the local area. Kobi and Pazit enjoy very hands on roles, and are both always accessible, whether your toilet is blocked, or you are on the edge of a nervous breakdown. The Yoga classes are as hard, or easy, as you want to make them, and the heat is never a problem with the fantastically designed outdoor studio, which has a number of ceiling fans to keep the air flowing. The small number of volunteers possess a wonderful knowledge of the various practices too, so there is always someone on hand to answer questions around the dinner table. I have learnt a lot of beautiful things at this place, and it has had a profound and lasting effect on my spirit. Don't think about coming here, just come here."

    "I came to Vagabond Temple as a volonteer completly by chance, expecting nothing from this place, only a roof and some food in exchange of some of my time and energy, but what I finaly found there was more than I could ever hope, I never did yoga before, for me it was only some crazy poses, all about flexibility and strench, but now I know that true yoga is so much more than just that. Its a way of life, a new perseption on things that change my life for the better, most I learned there was already inside of me, but hide behind all the conditioning of our modern society. What I found and what you will find too, its a safe place to be honest with your self, a place to look right inside of you with clarity and awareness, a place to free your self from illusion. I will lie if I tell you that its the easiest way, no It was not always pleasant to truely look at my self without blinkers, but I deeply knew that it was right path for me, and sometimes when I felt down I just had to look around to see all this amazing people sharing the same experience of seeking the truth, all this soul that will become a kind of spiritual familly for me, and I just had to open my arms to receive all this pure love and true understanding.The main teatcher Kobi and Pazit do an amazing work there, they choose to aim their life helping others to find their way, even if no one is entirely perfect, they are truely great, kind and loving souls, they will make you feel loved and welcome and they will be there if you need them. I' ve been there almost half a year and I saw many people coming with sorrow and leaving with a filled heart and a smile on their faces, If you are wondering if its a good place to go, stop wondering and go there, It will give you so much more that you can hope.Much love, from Nico!"

As a community, it gives you an instant feeling of home and there's room for everyone to do things together as a group, and to go on with their own projects. The yoga classes are varied and fun, usually Kundalini or Yin, led by either Kobi or Pazit. Sometimes the teacher training students lead the classes, they are also really good and well planned.Meditation is varied as well, I've learned so many different techniques and methods during this time - forever grateful! I also did the Reiki level I and II courses with Pazit, who is an incredible Reiki master and teacher. She makes time for all questions and created a warm comfortable place for all participants. It's just a great place where you can make your experience your own, there's opportunities to develop and find your path with the loving support of all the other Vagabonds! I really think you need to experience it yourself to really get the beauty of the Friday evening purification, the community sharing days, the fire ceremonies and so on. Love and light!"

    " I stayed at Vagabond temple for only 2 days, given that I had a strict itinerary. The people who stay at the temple tend to stay for at least a week, and often for a couple of months. Nevertheless, I can say that two days provided a valuable experience. The Vagabond community is a small oasis away from the stress and energy of regular travel. The teachers are incredibly kind and encouraging, and the rest of the students are open minded, even towards a "western-minded" traveller. I highly recommend making this temple a stop on your visit to Cambodia."

Vagabond offers a mix of yoga, healing and personal development options, for whichever length of time you wish to stay, and it's testament to their programme that many end up staying for longer than originally intended! The yoga classes are a mixture of styles and suitable for all levels, from beginners to those practicing for a longer time. The two owners Pazit and Kobi are very warm and welcoming. All the volunteers and community staff are incredibly friendly and open, which really made my stay here so enjoyable and memorable - I will definitely be staying in contact with many people! Overall it was a great way to reconnect with my yoga practice and challenge myself away from distractions of day to day life, and meet some fantastic people. Well recommended!"

    "Search no more, this place is magical. The short version of my experience: Kobi and Pazit are amazing and inspiring teachers, the classes are great and suited for beginners, as well as, advanced practitioners because Kobi and Pazit personalize their teaching. The atmosphere at the temple is so open and inviting and it's a joy to be around like minded people. Vagabond temple is a great place to simply practice yoga and meditation as a little break or getaway from daily life/traveling. It's can also be more, in the sense of a safe haven, a place for personal development and spiritual journeys. It can be what you want it to be.I initially booked to stay for a week, but (as you might have guessed) I liked it so much that I extended my stay. First for just one more week but I ended up staying for 3 months. During my stay I did the Reiki course level 1 and 2 and a Tantra workshop, both of which I recommend. I also learned a lot about yoga and really developed my self practice. Kobi and Pazit are the most loving, caring, inspiring and hard working people I have ever met and it's a pleasure to be around them. I have felt like part of a family during my stay and I have made friendships that will not end when leaving this place. Being here I have learned some valuable lessons about myself and life in general. So yes, I wholeheartedly recommend Vagabond Temple to be part of your journey."

Kobi and Pazit are excellent and uplifting teachers. They understand what each individual needs are and how they can help them meet their needs and get the answers the individual needs on their journey. If it wasn't for my family, I could have stayed months or even a year to continue learning with these two beautiful spiritual teachers and the members of the Vagabond Community."

    "We spent a week at Vagabond Temple doing a yoga and meditation retreat. Most people we talked to were staying a lot longer and it might be a way to get a lot more out of the experience. However, we did enjoy our stay and felt that the intensive yoga practice was very good for us - the yoga sessions were very varied and had different emphasis each time so you learn a lot. As we are beginners with meditation, we would have appreciated a little bit more guidance - on another retreat we had fully guided meditation which we found helpful, however I appreciate there are many different techniques to this. During our time at the temple there were not a lot of philosophy talks as they were replaced by a project that we did not wish to participate on.The food served was super-healthy, with fresh salad and fruits always available which was great. We did find the food just a little repetitive though as it was always served with rice and in my opinion some variety could be easily added by alternating rice with some vegan pasta/noodles/potatoes/bread etc. Also, it wouldn't hurt to offer some other fruit than watermelon and bananas. All in all we liked the food though and appreciate how healthy it was. Both Pazit and Kobi seemed like lovely people, as well as, great teachers. The whole atmosphere at the temple was lovely - loving, supporting, accepting. If we were ever going back to that part of Cambodia, we would happily do another retreat at the Vagabond."

I opted for it over a week in Bangkok and partying for Songkran, hoping it would help revive me after a hectic few months of teaching. How unbelievably lucky and grateful am I that I made that decision. Vagabond is a magical world in and of itself, tucked away from the busy tourist-filled town of Sihanoukville. It's a welcoming haven full of accepting people from all walks of life. Not only did I strengthen my yoga practice (you're bound to with multiple daily classes with Kobi and Pazit), I feel as if I now have begun and appreciate a spiritual practice as well.I was skeptical of the spiritual aspect from day one but quickly found the teachings from Kobi, Pazit, and special contributor Brian, resonating within myself and something I looked forward to each day. I can only suggest to others not to write off this part of your retreat - or life! - as it really brings together the entire experience. The combination of yoga, meditation, healthy delicious food, lovely people, and the overall special atmosphere of the retreat made it a week I will never forget. As said many times before, I only wish I had more time to spend there. That's why after only three days back in the daily grind, I've already decided I'll be returning for the July Intensive program in a few months - although I'm sure that won't be enough time either."

    "You need a place to rest away from the maze of your life? This is the place you want to go to. Stop the time for some days, weeks if you can. You'll have some time for yourself, You'll meet and share with people from everywhere. You'll nourish your stomach and soul with food you wish you'll never give up on. The teaching is simple, real, based on your everyday life, given by 2 lovely human being. Careful, you might never want to leave!"

    "I feel like I could write more of a novel about Vagabond Temple than a simple Tripadvisor review. There is so much to cover about what is offered, and more importantly, what is gained. I like many others went there with the intention to learn and practice yoga, and decided to just 'endure' the part of the daily schedule that spoke of other spiritual talks and group activities. but the experience I ended up having at Vagabond actually changed my path in a direction that has been so rewarding that I am so humbled by my experience there and forever grateful to Koby and Pazit.I set out on my travels seeking calm and peace after suffering from a stress-induced coma from a life filled with dramatically excessive work hours. but because I am an analytical type, I can suffer at times from 'demanding' to see a result before I believe in or commit to something. and that is what makes spending time with Koby and Pazit the game changer for me in this expereince (and my travels overall!). Unfortunately, I am someone who can quite easily pass judgement, and be speculative of all those who think they are in a position to be teaching others a lesson in life. but that is exactly what these two did for me - as they are not just repeating things they have read in books. They are two incredibly intellectual, analytical minds who speak in a way that command (and deserve) your attention, but the message they then convey when they have your attention is an interpretation of so many spiritual paths filled wth compassion, mindfulnes, self love, and hope. Its simply remarkable and exacty what i needed (and thats why my original 1 week visit kept chainging into a 2 week visit, into a 3 week visit, into a month!)So, this review isnt about the logistics of schedule or the location, which are of course beautiful, thoughtful, convenient, etc. but you can find a beautiful building and a convenient schedule in retreats all over the world. but that which you cannot find in any other retreat all over the world, is both the smile and tear inducing healing that comes with Vagabond Temple. I can whole heartedly testify to this! and while its been a while since my stay at Vagabond, I remain in constant contact. Throughout my travels across the globe, since leaving, I have been offered recommendations and connections for other mindful centers/connections from these two whenever i ask. That is why now, when I am in India, and constantly asked "who's your guru?" by locals and other yogis, I smile wide at the confusion on their face when my answer doesnt start with "Sri Something-or-other", and i just say: Koby and Pazit! so if you are seaking some healing, through mindful lecture or uncontrolable laughter, i humbly encourage you to visit Vagabond Temple (and please give Koby and Pazit a huge hug for me upon arrival!)"

    "There are no words for my experiences in Vagabond Temple. I was there in 2013. It was so good that I sometimes can't find the words to describe what it meant to me. Kobi and Pazit are one of the most beautiful people I ever met in my live. Their hearts are big and the knowledge that they have is amazing! They just want to make a difference in this world, and they definitely do! I have love for this place! Everybody can be there who he wants to be."

    "I met Kobi and Pazit in 2013 and spent three weeks under their wings. They helped me transform my life by introducing me to spirituality. I was lost for 31 long years of my life. Kobi and Pazit guided me in finding my true, inner-self. It was the most challenging time of my life, but the most rewarding. Kobi and Pazit were there for me for every moment of sadness and joy. I left there genuinely happy for the first time in my life and was ready to continue my spiritual journey. I came back to Vagabond Temple in January 2015, and I'm still here. I returned to VT to find a deeper sense of spiritually and my inner-peace. Kobi and Pazit continue to show me the amazing possibilities of the spiritual life. They guide me in a way that allows me to be loyal to my true-self, to see the importance of yoga, and the benefits of meditation."

    "I first met Kobi and Pazit three years ago when I was traveling through SE Asia. I was immediately impressed by their integrity and commitment to their spiritual practice. When I learned the next year that they were opening a center in Sihanoukville, I jumped at the chance to spend more time with them. I can honestly say it's been one of the most memorable and beautiful gifts I could have ever given to myself. I immediately felt at home and totally supported by the daily program. Both Kobi and Pazit always made themselves available to talk to as they genuinely care about the progress and wellbeing of their students. They have the most incredible breadth of knowledge that ranges from yoga, meditation, tantra, and Reiki through to nutrition and detox fasting. I have learned so much from them and are now proud to call them my friends. If you are in the slightest bit interested in the spiritual path and find yourself traveling through SE Asia, don't hesitate to spend time at the Vagabond Temple. Even if you are not, don't hesitate. It's an experience that will change your life and perspective forever. I know i will be back for more and wish I was there right now."

    "I had planned to go to Vagabond for 10 days as part of the month long yoga and meditation retreat and ended up staying until the very end - this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The first thing you experience when you walk into Vagabond Temple is the welcoming and safe atmosphere - everyone around has a huge smile on their face and an air of lightness. The grounds are green with flowers growing and hammocks hanging around the perimeter. It is a safe place to learn, grow and change.Kobi and Pazit are two of the most beautiful people. They are full of knowledge, experience, and passion for helping people down their spiritual path and were more than willing to answer any and all questions I had for them. Some of my favorite memories from Vagabond are seeing Pazit's genuine smile (all day, every day) and laughing with Kobi after he cracked a joke. Everything we did during the retreat, all of it - asana, pranayama, the food we ate (delicious vegan meals), karma yoga, the daily dharma talks - was all with the intention of helping us meditate and reach a deeper connection with our true selves.I am not someone who meditated regularly - can count on both hands the number of times I sat to meditate in my life I am sure - and I felt a lot of resistance to meditation during my first week. Both Kobi and Pazit supported me through this process, offering their experience and suggestions without pressuring me to do something I was not comfortable with. As a result of their guidance, I learned what methods were best for me and came to believe that meditation could have the positive impact on my life as it had on theirs. I have since been meditating by myself and am finding what works for me. When mind is wandering, whether I am meditating or simply not present during the day, I still use one of the best things they taught us: "time isn't real".Vagabond Temple gave me so many gifts - a deeper understanding of how yoga, both asanas and pranayama, affect my body and spirit; how to work with the energy within my body to activate changes (e.g. Kundalini, breathing); accepting and choosing to incorporate meditation into my practice; an awakening of how important it is to take better care of my body (e.g. not living in the harmful negative thoughts, eating vegan); an open heart and open mind to really continue this journey, for myself. I would recommend that anyone take the time to visit Vagabond Temple (and expect to stay longer than you planned!)"

    "I didn't even know what I was looking for when a fellow traveler mentioned Vagabond Temple and the atmosphere it provided. You get up with the sun, practice meditation, yoga, take classes in a variety of lifework topics and modalitites, eat healthy vegan meals and share space with an amazingly diverse group of seekers. Pazit and Kobi give of themselves from their core being and it shows in the bond that is created and solidified when you surrender into the power of transformation through education, practice, and will."

    "Vagabond Temple yoga and meditation retreat nestled near a beach in Sihanoukville, Cambodia. After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, I needed a break from the city. I spent weeks there relaxing, doing yoga, detoxing, getting healthy and reconnecting with my body, spirituality and health. Kobi and Prazit own the center and have international volunteers that help keep everything running smoothly.This center attracts travelers, wanderers, and vagabonds looking to take a break from the Southeast Asian backpacking trail and live in one place for a while. Most people book a spot for a week and end up extending much longer than they expected to. The guests and volunteers are all very sweet, inspirational, and kind. During my stay, I didn't meet any people at the center that I didn't like and get along with!Each day there are yoga classes, meditation times, dharma talks and meals. Throughout the week, special events are held too. I participated in a salsa dancing class, a spiritual nighttime fire pit, a tantra class, movie night, etc. The meals at the center are healthy vegan meals made from local produce that's delivered daily. I chose to participate in a 7-day coconut water only detox while I was there. 5 other guests participated and we were treated very kindly by everyone during those 7 days. Each day, we participated in classes, talks about nutrition and feelings, and got a spa treatment (Thai massage, oil massage, reiki or reflexology) to help our boy with the detoxification process. It was a wonderful experience!The rooms are mostly located in one big house and so there is a lot of (calm) activity throughout the day. The accommodations are nice and safe. I would highly recommend staying at Vagabond Temple during your next visit to Cambodia. I will definitely be coming back!"

    "Vagabond is my first yoga retreat experience and so far it has been great! I was supposed to stay only a month but I extended to 2 and now I'm not sure I will ever leave. I haven't been in an environment where I feel more accepted or safe than this one. The supportive atmosphere is incredible and the community is like a large family. The classes are incredibly fun, therapeutic and give you tools to continue on your healthy mind and body journey (should you leave of course). Pazit and Kobi dedicate all their time to this retreat and when they are not teaching they are usually helping out one person or another. They always have time for everyone and with their dynamic and radiant personalities, they have created a wonderful haven in which you can learn, enjoy and relax."

    "You can find a lot of yoga retreats in Southeast Asia, but I think you'll be pressed to find one with the sort of authenticity and virtue Pazit and Kobi have cultivated here. Whether you consider yourself spiritual or not, their teachings reveal the pitfalls of everyday life we so easily fall into and help to give you the tools for applying these insights once you leave. There is not an area they don't touch on: from nutrition, to community service, to exercise, and of course attention to your mind. You will get out what you put in, depending on the change you'd like to see in your life - they have all the guidance you need."

    "Been here for a month already and feel like I still have a lot to learn here. this place developed me in any area of my life in ways I didn't think possible. This is a great Environment for development with kind and like minded people who immediately make you feel like part of the family, and allow you to feel like your true self. The place offers various practices and focuses mostly on Hatha Yoga, Kondalini Yoga, and meditation. Kobi and Pazit are great teachers who really live and breathe the yogic life. the best teachers I have encountered. Located near the beach with a lot of nature around its a nice and peaceful environment. Highly recommended for anyone!"

    "Pazit and Kobi are amazing, caring and sharing people. Being disabled, I was unsure if I would be able to participate, but they designed some workouts specifically for me, which I am continuing on my own. I wasn't sure I would want to stay for 10 days but ended up staying for 40 days, and I plan on returning soon. I highly recommend Vagabond Temple."

    "Kobi and Pazit you are amazing at helping people develop not just yoga but a yogic lifestyle that definitely gives me more personal power and energy. Although I travelled twice from Australia and have to take precious time away from work to do so your style is worth it. Just one of many reasons that it's worth time time effort and money to be around you is that you keep developing yourselves. I have attended many before Vagabond Temple however given your own rate of development I don't think I would go anywhere else for my biannual yogic tune up."

Impressed by the spirit off, and by the knowledge of the teachers Koby and Pazit. The nice center, the big garden with enough space to "hide yourself" and the fine atmosphere in a group off open people. The ingredients what made our stay at the Vagabond Temple a highlight in our traveling the last months!"

    "I've been with Vagabond Temple for over two months now and I can say without a doubt that this experience has completely transformed my outlook on life. Kobi and Pazit are the most knowledgable, down to earth, honest and accepting people I have ever met. They have the tools and experience to teach yoga in a way that it becomes accessible and beneficial to everyone. The way yoga truly should be! Also the experience of living in a yoga based community with about 15-20 like minded souls has been truly heart warming. It's rare in todays world to meet so many warm loving people all at once. But after my time with Vagabond Temple I truly feel like I have a whole other family in Cambodia. Best decision of my life to come here. Totally recommend to anyone interested in yoga, meditation, health or just opening their mind to other possibilities."

Pazit and Kobi are two of the most wonderful, understanding, compassionate and loving souls I've ever met and I enjoyed every minute of the yoga, meditation and dhamma talk classes. You will also meet a bunch of other inspiring people to share your experiences, the hangmatt in the garden, self-practise time on the roof top and the healthy food with."

    "What a spectacular place. Top shelf yoga instruction one block from the Gulf of Thailand. Kobi and Pazit conduct a masterful blend of yoga, meditation, healthful nutrition and a growing range of specialized classes. In a matter of days, I felt my body transform and my heart open. This is the real deal. Somehow, they attract a super group of world travelers and seekers. If you are planning to be in Cambodia for a spiritual retreat - or Southeast Asia for that matter - this is the place to be. A wonderfully modern experience with seriously well trained teachers steeped in ancient wisdom traditions."
