Whether you’re a travelling yogi who wants to keep up with a practice or it’s your first downward dog, Thailand is a great place for yoga.
The Spa Resorts on the beautiful island of Koh Samui has two locations. The Spa Samui Beach Resort at Lamai Beach on the Gulf of Thailand is where The Spa Resorts began as Thailand’s first destination-health spa over 22 years ago. It’s a place for health minded people to enjoy a cosy beachside resort. I stayed at Spa Samui Mountain Retreat, which was built in 2002, nestled in Lamai Valley overlooking Lamai Beach. The Village, as many call it, is very close to the Spa Beach. There is a shuttle bus service that runs between the two locations and provides access to both locations. The Spa Resorts offers daily yoga classes at the Beach Resort or at the Village Resort.
Lumpini Park in the city centre, the Central Park of Bangkok, is the perfect place to enjoy yoga alfresco. You will need to bring your own mat and the classes are conducted in Thai. This just makes it more of an adventure. Don’t worry if you don’t understand, as the instructor will help you move into position. The classes take place on the grass under trees. Classes run for an hour every day, twice a day. Thailand is known as the land of smiles. Outdoor yoga, accessible to all, is yet another way to achieve a balanced life, taking care of your body, mind and soul all at the same time, and all the while you are smiling.
Go on fellow adventurers, it’s good for you!
