Accommodation

Ulmar's Nature Lodge

Island Yoga's base is Ulmer’s Nature Lodge in Tha Khao village, a quiet beachfront resort run by Ning and her ever-smiling crew of family and friends who put their heart and soul into making your stay special.

Bungalows

Island Yoga has four types of accommodations to choose from. For the cost-conscious traveler, there are dorm beds and private rooms in the budget house. The comfort bungalows are more spacious with a fan, hot shower, and mosquito net while the AC bungalows add a little more luxury to the retreat experience. When the Nature Lodge is full, guests can stay in one of the nearby lodges, which is a few minutes’ walk from the yoga shala. All the resorts used are of a similar standard to the Nature Lodge and all are situated either on the beach or a one-minute walk from the beach.

Island Yoga Thailand Yoga Retreat Program

Chakra Flow yoga

Chakra yoga sessions will awaken the seven different chakras or wheels of life. The sequences and postures are designed to enhance the energy flow in your body and awaken and balance the seven energy centers, removing blockages, trauma, suppressed feminine archetypes or needs in order to create a space of centeredness, creativity, confidence, and joy in your life.

Yin yoga and yoga therapy for women

Healing afternoon sessions of Yin yoga or gentle yoga therapy to promote the chi and circulation in the body, release physical or mental tensions stored in the myofascial layers of the body and practice mindfulness. These classes will promote hormonal balance and rejuvenate, restore, and nourish the body and soul on a deeper level.

Guided meditation and mantra

You will be guided daily through an inner journey to meet the Sacred Feminine, the Wild Woman Who Runs with the Wolves, or one of the seven sacred goddesses of the feminine psyche in you. Mantras are powerful tools to transform and heal on the subconscious level and create powerful changes in your belief system, behavioral patterns and manifestations.

Journaling near the ocean

Surrounded by the beauty of Mother Earth on this tropical island of Koh Yai Noi, take time daily to meet the ocean and find a personal space for yourself to reflect, journal a tap into your creativity, listen to the voice of your soul, express yourself, expand your horizons, and refine and manifest your path and direction in life. You will receive tools to support this inner journey to re-affirm the aspects of your life and femininity that have been neglected, suppressed or inhibited to make powerful changes in your life.

Ayurvedic yoga massage and Partner yoga

You will be offered a combination of Partner yoga practices and Ayurvedic yoga massage techniques to awaken the healing qualities you have within. Through the healing power of touch, prana, and connection, you learn to develop relationship qualities such as trust, stability, and openness. At the same time you are expressing boundaries, both verbal and nonverbal, while learning to apply gentle yogic stretches and massages, having fun, laughter and taking yourselves not too seriously!

Location

This retreat will take place in Koh Yao Noi, which is located in the Phang-Nga bay between Phuket and Krabi. It remains one of the rare gems of South East Asia; an island still largely undiscovered by mainstream tourism with pristine beaches, friendly locals, and outstanding natural beauty. It really is the perfect retreat hideaway.

Plenty of leisure time between our yoga classes allows you to discover the islands’ customs and culture, adventures, and cuisine. You can cruise the spectacular Phang Nga Bay, explore the island by bicycle or scooter, take a Thai cookery class or just relax in the hammock or get a massage. The island is completely safe, the locals are very friendly and polite. It’s remarkable to walk down the main street in the market and see every motor scooter with its key in the ignition!

The local village is called Tha Khao and is a 10-minute walk along the beach from the Nature Lodge.Tha Khao has a ͞sell everything͟ store, food stalls, and an internet cafe. The main road around the island is a 20-kilometer loop. There’s one real town halfway around the loop called ͞the market͟ which has about 1,000 inhabitants. The market has a 7-Eleven, a post office, police station, bank, internet cafes, local and tourist restaurants, clothes shopping, a pharmacy, and an ATM.
