Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Keirita's Yoga & Scuba Diving (now operating in Ko Lipe Island only) draws from a complimentary mix of varying yoga styles which are predominantly Ashtanga Vinyasa based. All classes are small & personal with 10 or less. Private classes are also available on request. For those looking for a yoga and a scuba diving holiday then this is the perfect place for you. The practice of yoga is most beneficial when it comes to scuba diving, the mindful breathing and movement techniques of yoga help with becoming accustomed to the mindful breathing & movement practices of being underwater. Keirita's yoga offers multiple daily classes in the beautiful Keirita's Yoga Studio Koh Lipe Island located in the far south of Thailand.

My friends and I were fortunate enough to meet Jonas while on Ko Phi Phi this past month. I believe we were one of his first classes he taught on Ko Phi Phi and he was very patient and informative throughout the entire class! If you are on island I definitely recommend taking his or any classes offered at Keirtas! Jonas is also an excellent climber, so if you're looking for a climbing buddy, look him up! ALOHA!

I have been taking Yoga classes from Keira for almost 2 years now, and I can honestly say it has changed my life. I was apprehensive at first, but after my initial class I was hooked. As a beginner, the class was challenging, but in a good way. All of the postures had modifications for the not-so-experienced (me!) which meant that I could work on the basics without feeling like I was holding up the more experienced yogis!

I find that Keira's ability to read her students during the class helped me immensely as I could take rest positions when I needed to, and push the harder postures when I felt that I could. She is incredibly patient, knowledgeable and experienced in her craft, and her teaching skills are well-honed from over 10 years of teaching scuba diving and yoga on the island.

The mixed levels class is great as she introduces new, more difficult postures in a way that everyone can try it, and if they want to push harder, she encourages you throughout.

The Mama Beach location is fantastic, on a large wooded deck. It is cool, breezy and you are overlooking the stunning Tonsai Bay. She also holds classes in the Banyan Villa Gym 3 days a week. The steam room after one of Keira's classes is a real treat for sure!

If you are a beginner or advanced, old or young, you should not miss the chance to practice with Keira on Phi Phi Island! Thank you Keira for all your guidance and encouragement!

If you're into yoga, make a plan! The location is gorgeous (on the quieter end of Ton Sai beach - at Mama's Beach Residence) and the instructor was fantastic - worked up a substantial sweat during the 1 1/2 hour class.
My husband sat at the bar at Mama's Beach Residence while I did my class, and then we had dinner there afterwards. It made for a lovely evening.

If you are staying in Phi Phi and whether you are into yoga or you are new to yoga you should go to Keira's classes. I attended her evening yoga classes twice and they completed my day. It was an amazing experience. Keira is a great teacher you can learn from as a new or experienced yogi. The location adds up on top of it; doing yoga at the beach and listening to the sound of the ocean will guide you into a good shavasana!
Thanks again, Keira!

after looking for yoga classes all over Thailand and not finding something that met my needs, I stumbled across keiritas yoga and I couldn't have been more pleased. being a complete beginner I was nervous about keeping up but Keira walked me through everything, was very patient and even took some time to talk to me after class. she has given me a flare for yoga after watching her graceful but strong movements, and her voice is one for meditation! On top of all that the setting is idyllic, looking out over the bay. My only complaint is that I didn't get the chance to take advantage of more classes due to time constrictions! I would highly recommend keiritas yoga to everyone and in fact already spread the word to fellow travellers. Keep up the good work Keira, you made my time on phi phi and thank you for the gentle introduction to yoga.
