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.
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.
