A mind free from all disturbances is yoga's essence, and rural Thais seem to have figured out a way to transcend life's worries and root themselves firmly in the practical  ground of experience.

 

Our Thai yoga retreat is as much about assuming poses as mindful lessons about mastering life. We'll integrate ourselves into daily life to discover how Thai people cope with life's stresses with playfulness and smiles.

They  practice their asanas daily as a matter of course, without ever going to a class.  Firm in posture yet relaxed in spirit, they place their body in seated positions that cultivate awareness and concentration. Buddhists the world over call this meditative state of consciousness "Samadhi."

Even as they sit to eat or banter, you'll see Thais sitting cross legged with a preternatural sense of calm.  If this is difficult for you, it's probably the pose you need the most!

 

We'll try to replicate these postures and the attendant mindfulness in a wide variety of different settings, in living temples and somnolent ancient ruins,  under bold waterfalls and at tranquil viewpoints.

Our Promise

 

This will be an unforgettable retreat that exceeds your expecatations. It will open new avenues for growth and personal understanding of yourself and a different culture.
