We are located in the beautiful hills of northern Thailand near the famed Mekong river. The center sits on over 50 acres of lush land, with inspiring mountain views, numerous ponds, gardens and forested areas. Our land is cultivated in a sustainable fashion and is one of the largest permaculture centers in Thailand. The stunning natural scenery provides an idyllic setting to practice yoga, study, contemplate, and relax. Our center is home to the largest dedicated yoga temple in the world.
Guests can choose from three different room options, which include private king rooms, twin double share or twin bunk-rooms. Our guest house is a beautiful 15 room, two-story building with hardwood floors upstairs and cool terra cotta tile downstairs. The glass blocks and skylights fill the building with natural sunlight and open-air ventilation helps keep it cool on warm days. Each room is equipped with fans, screened windows and bedding.
The meal plan is an additional 300 THB per day and includes 3 freshly cooked meals, fruit snacks, freshly prepared Ayurvedic teas, and a self-serve tea and coffee station. Our on-site Thai chefs prepare regional Thai cuisine with local, fresh ingredients, many from our own organic gardens. Guests enjoy three meals a day along with the center residents in our spacious and comfortable dining hall.
In addition, we offer two different guest rate options, regular guest and guest volunteer. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum stay of 2 weeks and are required to do 4-5 hours of volunteer work 5-6 days per week.
