WHAT IS A "MUAY THAI" RETREAT?

This is not your typical vacation. Instead of eating like a slob and lounging around while your vacation time slips away, the goal for this retreat is to help you come home in better shape than when you left!

Throughout this retreat you will learn a unique blend of Muay Thai techniques, training methods and drills that you can take home and adapt into your own training routine. With this type of training, you will develop a more aware and focused mind, especially through the additional yoga and mindfulness practices that the group does throughout the week.

On top of the training you will also get to explore the gorgeous scenery Greece has to offer. Not only that, you will also be served delicious, healthy, fresh meals three times a day while having the opportunity to lounge out by the pool overlooking to ocean or participate in the all-inclusive activities with the group!

Our aim is to have you come out of this retreat rejuvenated, energized, and motivated to continue living an active lifestyle and lead a purposeful life. 

We hope to reinvirogate your drive and passion for Muay Thai while encouraging you to continue pursuing your goals regardless of what they are. This retreat will be an exciting adventure where you will improve your Muay Thai technique, get in phenomenal shape, detox your body and mind, and develop a deeper connection with yourself ... it doesn't get much better than that!

Take a look at what to expect at one of these one-of-a-kind Muay Thai vacations in the video below!

The Perfect "Train-cation" For Muay Thai Addicts

“It’s been an amazing lifetime experience.” – Adam V

Here's even more amazing experiences people have had on Sean's past retreats in Costa Rica. 

Now just imagine how incredible Greece will be!


"I didn’t know what to expect, going to a new country, training with some unfamiliar faces and stepping out of my comfort zone, but attending Sean Fagan's Muay Thai retreat in Costa Rica in March of 2015 was one of the best choices I made."

I was surprised right off the bat how down to earth and friendly Sean was. I have had a lot of good luck with generally only dealing with positive people in the muay Thai community but you never know meeting somebody you have only followed online. Not only was he friendly to myself and the other members of our group but he was open to our input as far as what we wanted to train and do outside of training.

It’s always challenging making everyone happy especially a group that was pretty mixed as ours. He was patient with us, which is one of the hardest parts of training or teaching other. Some people don’t have that quality and it makes them poor teachers… Sean definitely is not lacking in this.

As far as the resort and country went, it was awesome. It was really the experience of a lifetime amazing food, beautiful beaches, super friendly locals and tropical weather. The hosts were extremely accomodating and friendly, I would go there again in a heart beat.

One of the coolest parts about the whole experience was meeting new people from different parts of the world that came together over a common bond like muay Thai, it really shows the positivity this sport can bring into your life. I gained some great experience from Sean and would train under him again anytime. The first day back to my normal gym people were amazed how much I was showing improvement, just from one week of focused work with Sean.

– Wesley Smith













OTHER FUN ACTIVITIES AT THE RETREAT

These Muay Thai retreats are more than just about Muay Thai, it’s about having an active, healthy vacation where you get to try out new things and experience a different way of life. Here are a few of the other activities that you can choose to do while on your retreat:

All Images Brought To You By "Kefalonia By Anna"

TRIPS TO PRISTINE BEACHES

Throughout the week you'll be exposed to so many beautiful beaches and amazing views you might never want to leave!

Whether it's doing some Muay Thai in the sand or relaxing between training sessions you'll be able to enjoy some of the most remarkable white sand beaches that Kefalonia has to offer!

RESTORATIVE YOGA


Jump into to the resorative yoga classes offered by 500-Hour Certiied Yoga Teacher, Liz Leo. She's taught a variety of skill levels in New York, Costa Rica and Thailand and will get both your mind and body right for your week of Muay Thai.

By training yoga you will become much more in-tune with your body’s movements, improve your flexibility AND become mentally stronger – which will help you become a better Muay Thai student and be more focused, aware and driven throughout everyday life. 

There will be 1-2 sessions mixed in with your Muay Thai training led by Liz.


ASSOS CASTLE TOUR

Take a hiking trip to the north west coast of the island to explore one of the largest castles in Greece, Assos. 

Explore the ruins and discover small chapels, ancient structures and beautiful landscapes. The strategic location of the Castle allowed supervising the whole sea area, and from here you can get beautiful view of the bay.  


TRIP TO DROGARATI CAVE

Become a cave explorer and visit the remarkable Drogarati Cave. This cave was discovered when a strong earthquake caused a collapse that revealed the cave’s entrance which has been open to the public since 1968. 

Drogarati is an impressive cave with incredible formations of stalactites and stalagmites. Not to mention it is close to Melissani Lake which we will also be visiting!

TOUR THE MAGICAL MELISSANI LAKE

Ready for a once in a lifetime type of experience?

You'll take a tour to this magical lake by entering the chamber via manne row boat. As you enter you will notice that there is no roof as u then you pass from a narrow channel to the second chamber that is a big cavern with numerous stalactites and stalagmites.

Fun Fact: Mythology mentions that the cave was named after one of the nymphs, called Melissanthi who committed suicide because God Pan was not responding to her love.

EXPERIENCE THE GREEK NIGHTLIFE

Want to see what the Greek nightlife is all about?

To wrap up the trip you can join the group to spend the final night at the BASS Club in the center of Kefalonia to dance the night away! (This portion of the trip is optional of course) 

"A COMPLETE DETOX OF THE BODY, MIND AND SOUL"

Balancing all facets of life (i.e. work, family, relationships and training) all at once is a constant battle that can suck the life out of even the most driven of people. Every now and then it's absolutely crucial to take a break from the day-to-day grind to recharge and relax, especially when we are feeling burnt out from doing too much.

If you go on a Muay Thai retreat, you're able to escape the stressors of life and completely cleanse your mind, body and soul. Listen to what past retreater Harland had to say about his experience at my retreat earlier this year.

Earth and water, green and blue, the nature in its grandeur in one of the most beautiful villages of the island, Lakithra.

The area of breakfast, relaxing, in earthy tints, is the most beautiful setting for starting a day while in vacations. Balancing between the colours of the sand and the sea, the Restaurant “Gevseis Eftyxias” (tastes of Eftyxia –eftyxia in Greek means happiness), offers real happiness with savours coming from the traditional Mediterranean cuisine in a space with character and personal style, providing generously complete satisfaction of senses. 

Looking far away to the Ionian from the pool and the beautifully formed outdoor spaces of green up to the playground and the tennis court, the visitors of Mouikis Village can enjoy the following services:

Are you serious about coming to this tropical retreat , but still have more questions?

Fill out the short survey below and Sean will personally get in touch with you to answer your questions!


“I was a bit nervous going to Costa Rica on a Muay Thai retreat. New country, new people, and traveling alone left me not knowing what to expect. But as soon as I landed and met Sean, Liz and Wes, I knew that it was going to be amazing!

We trained twice a day, every day, and every session we learned something new and got in great shape while doing it. Sean is an amazing teacher with a lot of knowledge and love for Muay Thai. After each session, I felt a better sense of what my weaknesses are and what my strengths are. Training with Sean in Costa Rica gave me what I needed to re-motivate myself and be the best that I can be inside the ring and outside. I will definitely be attending more of his retreats!

I feel very fortunate to have had this experience and will definitely implement what I learned into my training and into my style of fighting. I can’t thank Sean enough!”
