"Dive into Thai culture and yoga"
My experience at Earth Yoga homestay retreat was very positive. Leena teaches yoga classes in a very didactic way, and she transmits a lot of calm and loving kindness. It is a unique opportunity to learn more about yoga as a philosophy and also about the rich Thai culture with a lovely and welcoming couple. I really enjoyed the tours planned by Micha and Leena through the region, where I was able to see and learn more about Buddhist temples, beautiful landscapes of nature and many smiling Thai people who prepare great food. The homemade food prepared by the two is also a highlight, with a varied and tasty breakfast, in Thai and Western style as well. Thank you very much!

"Skip ordinary crowded studios for this personalized retreat"
The Earth Yoga Korat Yoga and Homestay Experience was exactly as described- daily yoga, excursions to incredible natural and historical sites, lots of opportunities to interact with Thai locals, authentic food, and free time for your own activities. The location is absolutely perfect if you are not a fan of mass tourism. There are lots of great restaurants and places to visit but without the heavy traffic of many other cities. Beware, they will feed you to death with the most amazing food from awesome Thai restaurants and with Micha's very own restaurant-worthy dishes. I really enjoyed the yoga too. Kru Leena was great at adjusting to different students needs and gave really helpful adjustments on my postures. Don't worry if you are a solo traveler because Leena and Micha are so kind and flexible that you will feel at home with two great friends! By far, the people I met during my stay are what made this retreat truly amazing.

"Lena is great"
Don’t expect the facilities in a hotel. Real Thai lifestyle with dogs and a cat. Be mindful you are going to experience a different atmosphere and be ready to tolerate. Lena’s kind heart can fix everything

"Excellent experience and no regret to join"
Leena, the yoga instructor is superb. She is friendly, treating us like a family members. You can feel her passion and kindness all the way.
Her yoga retreat programs were interesting. We did yoga, medication, hiking, seeing temples and going local market, and also having Thai cooking class. These were so different from the retreat in other places.
The meals were great also, we tried different kinds of Thai food everyday. Lots of local fruits were provided, which were delicious and so special.
We met new local friends from the yoga class. They were nice too.It was funny and interesting to know Thai culture.
The location was a little bit far from Bangkok, however, still convienent to go. You can take bus or taxi if taking the pubic transport, around 3 to 4 hour drive.
Maybe the place was not close to Bangkok, you can feel the slient and calmness. The environment there was so beautiful.

"Einmalige Möglichkeit das echte Thailand kennenzulernen"
Wir hatten super schöne und erholsame Tage bei Leena und Micha. Wir wurden bereits in korat am busbahhnhof abgeholt. Auch bei der Abreise wurden wir sehr unterstützt. Das war total super.
Während unseres Aufenthaltes habe ich meine ersten Yogaerfahrungen machen können. Leena ist wirklich eine tolle Lehrerin und schafft es auf unterschiedliche Level einzugehen. Der Unterricht fand abends statt. Tagsüber haben wir unterschiedliche Sachen unternommen und echte Geheimtipps kennengelernt. Zwischen dem ganzen leckeren Essen, den Unternehmungen und dem Yoga hatten wir auch immer wieder Zeit für uns, konnten zur massage, lesen und ein bisschen die gegend erkunden. Leena und Micha hatten wirklich alles toll organisiert waren aber auch immer sehr flexibel. Wer Lust darauf hat Thailand wirklich kennenzulernen, lecker zu essen und gute Gespräche zu führen für den ist der Homestay ein echter Tipp.
