Yoga in Thailand

Sometimes referred to as the ‘land of smiles’ this country is vibrant and colorful with stunning scenery. Thailand welcomes visitors with open arms and will truly go above and beyond to make their visitors feel safe and taken care of.
Thailand is tailor-made for great yoga experiences, which can be combined with the world-renowned cuisine, white sand beaches and some of the friendliest people on the planet.

Your Yoga Guide for Thailand

Yoga in Thailand is flourishing and, like tourism in the country, the destinations and activities are endless. The white sand and turquoise waters of the islands draw visitors year round, while the cool hills and laid back towns of the north offer respite, from the frenzied pace of life in Bangkok.

Yoga and Buddhism have coexisted happily for thousands of years, and the warm, hospitality of the Thai culture, makes it an irresistible place to perfect your asanas. Yoga holidays in Thailand can take various forms, from island retreats with daily swims, to morning meditations and hikes in the hills.

The cuisine itself is a great reason to come on a yoga retreat in Thailand! An abundance of fresh, locally sourced ingredients and their infamous love affair with fiery chilis, make eating in Thailand a foodie’s dream.

With meditation and mindfulness being fundamental components of yoga practice, integrating these disciplines is becoming increasingly important for yogis. Many retreats now offer combination packages, which can offer spirituality or healing and wellness activities alongside yoga.

Infos about Yoga Retreats / Yoga Holidays in Thailand

There are numerous places to choose from when it comes to yoga, but some of the best retreats in Thailand can be found on the islands in the south of the country. Ko Phangan is well-known for its full moon party, which attracts the revelers from far and wide. Indeed, perhaps as a result of its hedonistic distractions, it also plays host to many studios and retreats offering yoga, detox and wellness facilities.

Popular centers include The Sanctuary, which offers yoga, meditation, detox and plant-based menus. Agama Yoga welcomes trainee instructors, with a number of teacher training courses available and a reputation that comes with the center’s worldwide success.

With a well-established wellness community and surrounded by forested hills and some of the best cuisines in the country, Chiang Mai should be at the top of your list when it comes to planning your next yoga vacation in Thailand. In addition to yoga, there are cooking courses, massage training and hiking trails that can be incorporated into your itinerary. What’s more, cooler temperatures between October and April make it easier to get the most out of your stay.

Namo Yoga offers massage courses and daily drop-in yoga classes to travelers and locals alike. With their teak wood studio, Freedom Yoga welcomes people of all levels and their cafe and juice bar are the ideal place to relax after class.

Best yoga places in Thailand

Koh Phangan

Secluded bays, lush tropical jungle and soft white-sand beaches make up Thailand's fifth biggest island: beautiful Koh Phangan.


Phuket is among the world’s finest beach destinations, with fine white sands, nodding palm trees and glittering seas.

Chiang Rai

Small but well equipped with attractions, Chiang Rai is a land of natural beauty.

Koh Samui

Beautiful Samui. There are not enough hours in the day to enjoy this island at its fullest.

What Yogis should know about Thailand

Thailand’s rich biodiversity means that yogis can get involved in various activities to supplement their yoga practice: rock climbing on the limestone cliffs of Krabi, trekking in the northern hills around Chiang Rai and scuba diving off Koh Samui. The land of smiles will have you grinning, in no time at all.
