On the first night in Bangkok, you will be staying at Novotel Hotel. During your retreat in Chiang Mai, you will be staying at Sri Pat Guesthouse or BB Mantra Guesthouse. Both offer a full service restaurant and bar, pool, tours and trekking, free Wi-Fi and laundry services.
Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner of Nuad Boran, often called Thai massage or Thai yoga bodywork, or an absolute beginner, this retreat is open to all interested students and will offer a variety of training programs from beginning to advanced practitioner.
In the morning, you will start your day with spiritual practice consisting of yoga poses (asana), yogic breathing (pranayama) and meditation (raja yoga) led by Tanya Boigenzahn in the hotel lobby near the pool.
After breakfast during weekdays, you will venture into Chiang Mai for Thai bodywork training with a variety of schools and masters depending on your experience level and interests. There are also other organized group activities including a Thai cooking class at an organic farm and temples visit.
Tanya focuses on yoga teacher training, guest teachers, workshops and student mentorship. She travels more and more offering workshops, training, and client sessions nationally, and guides retreats internationally. Tanya started practicing yoga since the early 90s and has been teaching since 1996. For over 20 years, Tanya has traveled and worked in a variety of foreign places. She completed her 500-hour Yoga Alliance teaching credentials through ParaYoga® and is one of the few Level II Certified Teachers in the world, and the first in Minnesota.
This retreat will take place in Chiang Mai, Thailand’s second largest city. Old town, the place where you will be staying, is surrounded by a perfectly preserved moat and sits near the Ping River. There are more than 300 temples in the city and bike or scooter to cruise around the small lanes which is a great way to see the sights.
Bottled water is available at the hotel, as well as at just about every shop in Chiang Mai. As with most foreign travelers, it is essential that you avoid drinking tap water. Some environmentally concerned travelers may bring water filtration kits, which can be found at any camping supply store. This reduces the number of plastic bottles you will leave in Thailand.
One of the best things about visiting Thailand is the food. It’s colorful, affordable, and packed with so many fresh flavors. Some people say stay away from raw foods to stay keep their digestion healthy, yet so many people enjoy these foods - think fresh papaya - and never get sick.
Tanya will recommend some of the more reputable restaurants when you are out exploring. There are many wonderful vegetarian / vegan / gluten-free friendly restaurants as well, often filled with fellow Thai bodywork students from all over the world. Please let Devanadi School of Yoga & Wellness know if you have any concerns about your diet.
You are suggested arriving at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) in Bangkok on or before Friday, November 18, 2016. On Saturday, November 19, 2016 in the early afternoon you will take an hour flight via Thai Airways north to the foothills of the mountains around Chiang Mai.
