The Yoga Retreats
Led by a highly-experienced and passionate head teacher, James with his teachers, the 200hr teacher training is one of quality and integrity to the authentic roots and purposes of Yoga. Lessons and practice take place in two beautiful shalas, one of which looks out onto the vast rice fields and towering mountains of Doi Suthep and Doi Inthanon in the distance. The isolated location is most complimentary for those looking to retreat from the outside world and dive deeper into the study, practice and holistic lifestyle that Yoga can offer.
So if you are ready to have an amazing new experience, checkout Mala Dhara, rend a bicycle and travel around, try their amazing vegan fresh food straight from their organic farm, go to the sauna and hang out by the bonfire, practice yoga in the yoga room or in the yoga shala between the rice fields and just relax in the amazing mountain view.
