The Oasis Yoga Family
- About Us
Farra is the co-founder and lead instructor at Oasis Yoga. She is the designer for the Oasis Bungalows and a devoted DIYer. When she's not busy teaching Flow, Hatha, Yin or Kid's Yoga classes she probably power napping or having a glass of wine on the beach at sunset. Farra's classes are powerful yet easy to understand and follow and her passion for health and happiness is infectious.
Kate is the co-founder of Oasis Yoga, creator & chef of The Oasis Kitchen, and a true jack of all trades. She is a professional photographer and takes care of branding, marketing, web design, social media content and hotel bookings. She even manages to teach a few Ashtanga classes and leads mediation practices. Kate thrives when she's cracking jokes, training Muay Thai, or walking on a slack line.
Nook is the Manager at Oasis Yoga Bungalows. She is the solver of all problems and almost always manages to smile while doing so. For Nook, work and hobby often blend as she genuinely enjoys gardening, helping people, social welfare projects and all things artistic.
Mango is the head of hospitality and the CEO of cuddles at Oasis Yoga. She is the most lovable member of staff and by far the most photogenic. She enjoys short walks on the beach, air conditioned rooms, tuk tuk rides, pretending to be a person, and every kind of food except vegetables.
A letter from Kate and Farra Dear friends and guests, It's been a wild ride since we first opened the little treehouse studio on Klong Dao beach in 2013 and this past year has been the wildest yet. So we'll catch you up on the journey…..
Kate and I were on our fourth holiday in Koh Lanta when we got the coincidental tip to go check out the location of our old studio space. With one look at the yoga sala, our lives and future totally changed. We had been living abroad for almost a decade by then and most recently spent 5 patient years in Taiwan preparing, practicing and saving while we waited for the Universe to move us on to the next chapter in life. It was worth the wait. We never really dreamed it would be the Oasis Yoga that we know and love today but we are so grateful that it is.
We have always strived to make Oasis an authentic place that is welcoming, non-pretentious and easily accessible to anyone and everyone. Which has allowed us the pleasure of getting to meet an amazingly diverse amount of people & practices. We truly love that. As most great things in life, our Multi-Level Flow class was a happy accident. Something at the beginning that I never would have chosen, now stands as a daily reminder to me that advancement in yoga doesn't involve standing on your hands and is more likely knowing when to come into child's pose and just breathe. For me it's incredibly rewarding to see a total beginner suddenly aware that they are truly breathing and at the same time a humbling honor to hold space and lead class for those who have practiced yoga for many years.
Over the last several years in our small space, we enjoyed trying to meet the all the requests of our guests. So in addition to adding more variety of yoga classes, we started a little shop, then a little juice bar, and then a little cafe..… As much as we all truly loved that space, we all just truly grew out of it. The space needed to evolve and so did we. It took a long time, we even gave up, but eventually the perfect new space at, just the right time, found us again.
So here we are today, still just a treehouse yoga studio on Klong Dao beach that welcomes all. Only now we have the room to actually meet all your other needs for a total health and happiness holiday by offering affordable bungalows, an inviting bar & juicery, a restaurant focused on clean, healthy food and simply more space to enjoy yourself.
Whether you are totally new to yoga or an lifelong practitioner, we welcome you. We hope you find the accommodation on Koh Lanta to suit you perfectly. If that isn't Oasis Bungalows then we still happily invite you to our yoga classes, restaurant, health bar, and shop. We believe in the power of yoga, we believe in catching positive momentum in life, we believe in putting health and happiness first so we created a space that makes it not only possible, but easy. Would love for you to join us for any or all of your stay on Koh Lanta. So come as you are!
Health and Happiness,
