Restore, renew, and strengthen with gentle therapeutic yoga sessions and guided iRest yoga Nidra meditations. You will be in a floating bungalow at the rustic and spectacular retreat venue at the remote Khlong Long Lake in Southern Thailand. You will learn skills to navigate challenges with more ease, clarity and joy.
Accommodation is in a beautiful, spacious floating bungalow, a "Jungalo". One or two decks are one each bungalow, offering beautiful cliff and lake views, and a place for a nice hammock nap or viewing wildlife. Each bungalow is furnished a comfortable bed (2 beds in double occupancy units), bedding, pillows, and mosquito netting. (Although we rarely see a mosquito) All the bungalows, as well as all other structures, are floating on the lake, connected by bridge walkways. The bathroom and shower facilities are the only structures on the land.
Begin each day with sunrise therapeutic yoga, followed by breakfast and free time to kayak, swim, hike, or just hang out in your hammock. After a delicious lunch, you will explore and optimize your movement patterns with different aspects of therapeutic yoga; bio-mechanical awareness, pure movement, breathing, and listening to your inner teacher. A light evening dinner, followed by laying down yoga Nidra guided meditation will leave you blissfully relaxed and ready for stargazing or early to bed.
An excursion further into the national park with raft-boat lake tour and a visit to a cave is included. A second optional day excursion is available.
