Koh Phangan

Yoga in Koh Phangan

The beach parties that have made this island infamous, still bring in hordes of young backpackers for the monthly Full Moon Party. However, Koh Phangan offers much more to those who are willing to venture beyond the bars, including one of the hottest yoga scenes in South East Asia.

Your Yoga Guide for Koh Phangan

If you’re looking for Yoga in Koh Phangan, you should turn your attention to the North West coast of the island. A safe distance from Hat Rin, which is the epicenter of the island’s nightlife and entertainment, has a beautiful yoga scene. Pristine sandy beaches and lush forests create the ideal surroundings to deepen your practice, recharge your batteries or treat your body to a detox.

Often seen as more appealing to independent travelers than its larger neighbor Koh Samui, the less developed Koh Phangan has been a popular stop on the yoga trail for many years. This has made the transition into a major yoga destination seamless, with the values of self-awareness and simple living at the core of today’s community and retreat philosophy.

If you want to supplement your yoga holiday in Koh Phangan with other activities, snorkeling, diving, and rock climbing are all easily accessible and offer some of the best conditions in Thailand.

What Yogis should know about Koh Phangan

While some yogis might not be interested in the excesses and intoxication that often go hand in hand with the Full Moon Party, having a couple of drinks and dancing late into the night can tempt even the most dedicated purists.

If you want to check out the party scene in Koh Phangan, there are many other less crowded events, than the much coveted monthly gathering.
