Travel to beautiful Thailand for a lovely yoga retreat. There is a huge range of yoga retreats on offer. Is it a unique jungle retreat or beach retreat you want? I have made a small selection of yoga retreats to help you on your way.

Yoga retreat in Thailand

A yoga retreat is always a good idea if you ask me. Especially in Thailand, because there you get a lot of yoga for your money. Although the prices of yoga retreats in Thailand also vary a lot. It just depends on what you are looking for: pure luxury or is back to basic also okay for you? Most yoga retreats in Thailand also offer a variety of additional activities, from cooking classes to massages.

I eventually went for a yoga teacher training in Thailand (this one). Because I just wanted to immerse myself entirely in the yoga bubble and was also looking for more depth. It just depends on what you’re looking for. In my search, I came across many yoga retreats that seemed pretty amazing. This is a small selection.

Yoga and meditation retreat in Koh Yao Noi (4 days)

Have you ever heard of the Thai island of Koh Yao Noi? It is close to Phuket and Krabi but has hardly been discovered by tourists. And here, you can join the yoga retreats of Island Yoga Thailand. At this yoga and meditation retreat, you get up early to meditate at sunrise and then join a yoga class. Different types of yoga are on offer, which could be a good introduction to several styles. Island Yoga has different accommodation types, from dormitories to private rooms.

Yoga and Wellness retreat in Phuket (8 days)

If it’s luxury you’re after, this yoga retreat in Phuket might be for you. You participate in two yoga sessions every day and receive an Ayurvedic treatment for 2 hours. An Ayurveda specialist will work intensively with you, and you can choose from various massages daily. Between yoga and massages, you can chill at the beautiful swimming pool or retreat to your luxurious accommodation. This is genuinely a pamper yoga holiday!

At BookYogaRetreats, you will find more than 300 yoga retreats in Thailand in different price ranges, from a few days to a month.

Yoga and meditation retreat in Chiang Mai (5 days)

This is so cool! At this yoga retreat in Thailand, you stay with a Thai family and a couple of cats and dogs. You can join various yoga classes, meditations, and workshops in the middle of the jungle. It is a small-scale retreat: there are only four rooms. So, if you want, you also quickly build a good relationship with your fellow yogis. A yoga retreat to remember.

Wellness and yoga in Koh Phangan (4 days)

At this short yoga retreat in Koh Phangan, you have three mornings with yoga classes and a nice breakfast. In addition, the retreat includes a massage, and you can use the sauna facilities for one day. Furthermore, there is a lot of free time to discover Koh Phangan. So this is a perfect yoga retreat if you want to do some yoga but want to spend only some of the day doing it.

Yoga holiday Thailand

Yoga and meditation retreat in Koh Samui (3 days)

Even if you aren’t into yoga, you want to book this place because of its location. On top of the cliff, by the sea, and with beautifully decorated indoor and outdoor areas. Just looking at the photos makes me feel calm and relaxed. 😉 Every day, you have two yoga classes and a meditation session. You can also join tours in the area or book a Reiki session as an extra. A perfect yoga retreat to start or end your holiday in Thailand.

Vegan wellness retreat op Koh Phangan

Yes, one more lovely yoga retreat on Koh Phangan. The island has so much more to offer than full moon parties. This retreat takes place in Surat Thani, far from the party vibes. It consists of yoga, pilates, and meditation sessions, and it is one of Thailand’s most popular yoga retreats! The ‘regular’ program is supplemented with exciting workshops and sessions like sound healings and kirtans. Lots of variety and very tasty vegan food. You’ll love it!

Yoga training in Koh Phangan (28 days)

Do you want yoga all day, every damn day? Then opt for a teacher training. You will learn everything about yoga so that you can teach yoga afterward. But of course, you don’t have to. I did this yoga teacher training at One Yoga and thought it was fantastic. Incredibly hard, because yoga is all you do and learn from half past six in the morning to six in the evening for four weeks. You get a lot of yoga classes to work on your own practice, but you also learn about anatomy and yoga philosophy. So you go much deeper into the yoga bubble than you do at a regular yoga retreat.

Tip! Want to do a yoga nidra session at home? Try the Insight Timer app. You can listen to sessions for free. Mine too! Check them out.
