You will be staying at Mala Dhara Eco Yoga Resort. Imagine waking up in a uniquely designed villa on an organic farm with rolling fields and mountains in the backdrop. These immaculately designed villas feature high ceilings, with spacious indoor sitting areas, mosquito nets, air-conditioning, fans, and fridge, and are equipped with internet.

Villa bookings are unique and there is only one of each villa. All villas feature king beds that can be converted to a twin share. The Mala Villas can be converted to two adjoining villas for families.

Bamboo dorms

The Bamboo dorms have high ceilings, a sleeping loft, separate and accessible shared bathrooms, and easy access to all of the other facilities. This simple accommodation is getting back to the basics in the most authentic way possible.

Bamboo Villa

Bamboo Villa is a large, high-ceiling villa with a spacious indoor sitting area with moonlight views and an enormous veranda with a lush curved couch. It acquired its name firstly from the bamboo-adorned bathroom with open air views of starry Chiang Mai nights and the adjacent organic farm.

The Bamboo Villa is one of the signature earthen adobe structures and so provides the same smooth curved textured walls and high domed ceiling, though here you will find a finely woven bamboo overlay adding warm hues and timeless traditional design, centered by a quiet and tasteful ceiling fan.

The windows are large wooden handcrafted shutters, which block out any light when closed, providing a deep and restful sleep. They give the impression of an open air pavilion when opened - fully embracing the verdant natural surroundings of Doi Saket and serving as a reminder that you are in northern Thailand.

The interior of this villa is spacious enough to provide a beautiful seating area inlaid into the earthen walls and lined with pillows, as well as a large double bed and hand-sewn cotton mosquito net. The bathroom has a special open air design with stylish ceramic basin and fine fixtures providing a romantic tropical element to your stay. The standard fridge, Wi-Fi, air-conditioner, and extra fan are also a part of this roomy villa.

Dhara Villa

Dhara Villa offers guests an opportunity to stay in a room with a unique, individual design, large interior, and always enticing wooden bathtub. It is a short walk from the pool and restaurant. It consists of an eye-catching earthen, pillow-strewn, bench, and a large comfy double bed tucked back into its own cozy nook and sweetly shrouded in a cotton mosquito net. Dhara Villa is an earthen built structure designed with powerfully thick walls keeping you cool from the hot northern Thailand days.

Hobbit Villa

When you enter Hobbit Villa, you enter through the handcrafted and individually designed doorways as a prelude to the tasteful elegance inside. As one of the earthen adobe villas, the Hobbit Villa has a unique appeal as it was lovingly assembled one molded sun-dried brick at a time. It houses tastefully chosen authentic furniture, brass fixtures, and cotton drapes.

The bathroom features an intriguingly large rounded doorway, a rain shower, and an artisanal wooden bathtub. Lounge in any of the warm curves of the villa in the ample sitting area and enjoy the spaciousness of an enormous poster bed with cotton mosquito net.

Jai Dee Villa

Jai Dee Villa is around the building of adobe earthen design located between Gluay yoga shala, the herbal sauna, and the organic farm. With an earthen adobe brick design, hand molded on site, and lovingly assembled - Jai Dee Villa, while smaller inside, offers the same standard of design, amenities, and comforts as the other villas. The villa has sweeping views of the mountains and is perched above the gardens and rice fields of the organic farm.

This location offers the most private setting to stay at the Mala Dhara and perhaps the most unique. When opening the rounded windows of the Jai Dee Villa, you will be immediately struck by the sweeping views of the distant mountains of Doi Saket, preceded gently by the vast expanse of green rice fields.

The entrance to the villa is one of the iconic round wooden doorways found at the Mala Dhara and leads to a small but cozy villa, perfect for a romantic escape or solitary retreat. The ceilings are high and decorated with Thai woven bamboo designs.

The bed is large and seems to define this villa as one of where a luxurious night's sleep means being out in nature but with all of the creature comforts you need, such as epic views, breezy nights, a cotton mosquito net, fluffy pillows, a rain shower, air-conditioner, and a fridge.

Mala Villas

The Mala Villas are specially designed villas that can be fashioned as either two private villas with shared outdoor bathroom or as two connected villas - perfect for family or friends. The villas have separate entrances and are connected by an enormous round glass door that can be completely closed off for separate guests or used for family and friends sharing a connected villa.

The Mala Villas are earthen structures mixed with brickwork, large beds, cotton mosquito nets, and tastefully chosen furniture. Each has its own air-conditioner, fridge, Wi-Fi, and fans. They have a very special design even among so many stand-out accommodations.

This villa is actually separated into Mala Villa A and Mala Villa B, with a shared outdoor bathroom. The outdoor bathroom, while only two meters from the villa, might strike some people as an inconvenience but has proven immensely popular for shy couples and twin room retreat guests who prefer to step away from the room for a moment of privacy.

Raindrop Villa

Raindrop Villa is the most iconic structure on the property because of the three domes on the roof, seen as emerging from the rice fields across a wide expanse. The villa faces north toward the mountains of Mae On, with a small veranda and hammock outside and away from the other villas.

The lighting is gently set with intricately designed metal wall fixtures, indoors and out, and the ultra high domed-ceiling supports a lovely ceiling fan while another vintage standing fan near the bed assists in providing the breezy ambiance. The bathroom fixtures are individually selected, the tiles carefully chosen, and the sink is a classic wooden basin.

Towels hang neatly from a bamboo ladder. The large space and massive shower head make the entire experience truly luxurious. Completely circular in form and without a corner anywhere in the design, the raindrop villa promises an energetically soothing and welcoming stay for every guest.

The schedule is flexible and planned to maximize your experience of holistic wellness and healing while allowing free time to absorb the beauty of the people and the land. Johnson teaches from an intuitive place of guiding each student to their fullest potential. He has been teaching since 2008 and has an extensive background in Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and ANYA yogic techniques, as well as having training in martial arts, Pilates, and GYROTONIC.

Johnson has developed a guided meditation journey to induce an even more profound state of healing. He will guide you through a series of powerful visualizations that will empower your ability to exist in a higher realm of consciousness as you explore your relationship with your lower self, higher self, and life purpose. This meditative journey has been a catalyst of deep change, bringing new meaning into your daily life while repairing the relationship with your true selves.

Yoga

The yoga classes are designed to consciously release holding patterns in the body while stimulating vital energy. The movements in class are a powerful combination of fitness and movement as medicine.

Meditation

Meditation is practiced by millions as a means to help the mind release thoughts of painful memories of the past and anxious worries about the future while helping to maintain focus on the present moment. During the retreat, you will explore various types of meditation, from classical yogic breathing techniques to more visual shamanic journeys that deepen your connection to your mind's subconscious and conscious states, emotions, and physical body.

Ajna light meditation

The Ajna light machine was developed by ex-Apple chip designer, Guy Harriman in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and functions as a neural-stimulating computer lamp. This innovative and highly effective device easily and rapidly brings the user into a deeply relaxed meditative state. It works through a combination of ancient and modern scientific techniques.

Using very powerful photic light stimulation to induce the same brainwaves states seen in advanced meditation practitioners. The light sequences will take you through a series of deep meditative states with ease.

The light passes through the retina, stimulating the pineal gland and allowing the hypnogogic (between sleep and wakefulness, a deep meditation) trance state to be induced. The Ajna light is a spiritual tool to access greater intuition, learning, and exploring your inner consciousness.

Bicycle tour in the Old City

One of Chiang Mai's major attractions is its Old City. While many old cities all over Thailand once had walls and moats, Chiang Mai is almost the only city where the old walls are still mostly intact. In addition, the city within the old walls still has many charming lanes. You will head into town on bicycles and pass by old shrines and witness the integration of the old and the new.

Caves of Mae On

Mae On Cave is a huge cave with the trail of history. As you walk through the ancient pathways, you will see timeless Buddhist antiques. The cave itself is stunningly beautiful and composed primarily of limestone.

Mae On is situated at Sankampaeng near the hot springs. A long Naga staircase leads up to the mouth of the cave, and a steep climb down again gives access to a number of caverns filled with impressive stalagmites and stalactites.

The winding caves are home to thousands of natural rock formations and a concrete pathway allows visitors to wander past the sacred Buddhist shrines.

Mountain bike to Doi Inthanon

Doi Inathon is the highest mountain in Thailand and known as the "Roof of Thailand." The two-hour hike up the mountain is home to over 190-bird species and features spectacular views of waterfalls in which you can swim.

As the gateway to the Himalayas, this was an important spiritual vortex of energy and many Buddhist stupas were built in dedication to old kings and queens with the intention of connecting to the divine.

With the fresh, chilly air on the top of the mountain allowing you to breathe deep and relax while admiring the vistas surrounding you. It is easily one of the most peaceful places in Thailand. When you arrive at the top, your afternoon yoga practice at the top of Doi Inthanon will be absolute magic!

Saturday night street market

Hands down, this is definitely the best night market in Chiang Mai. The market has a wide range of arts and craft, clothes, soaps, and lots of delicious food stalls. If you want to pick up some local herbs and spices or some souvenirs, you are bound to do some worthwhile shopping during this festive gathering of artisans and craftsmen.

  • Johnson Chong

    Joschi Yoga Institute Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Vinyasa Yoga)

    Yoga Alliance RYT 500 (Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Akhanda Yoga)

    Johnson is a yoga teacher, Pilates teacher, bodyworker, healer, and light worker. He has studied with yoga masters like Sri Dharma Mittra, David Life, Sharon Gannon, and Duncan Wong. He received his initial 200-hour Vinyasa yoga training from Joschi Yoga Institute in New York, a 500-hour training in Akhanda yoga, classical Kundalini, and Hatha Raja with Yogirishi Vishvaketu in India, and has completed over a 1000 hours of continuing education with his lifelong teacher and mentor, Courtney Bauer of the ANYA method (applied neo yogic awareness) in New York.

This retreat will take place at Chiang Mai, Thailand. Chiang Mai is Thailand's northern capital and was the former seat of the Lanna kingdom. Nestled amongst forested foothills, Chiang Mai is much older than it first appears. During the city's medieval heyday, almost everything was made of teak hauled by elephant from the surrounding rainforest, with the notable exception of its towering wát.

The monasteries still remain centered on ancient brick stupas in a remarkable range of shapes and styles, but the gaps between them have been filled in with modern Thai houses and traveler hotels. Despite this, the historic center of Chiang Mai still feels overwhelmingly residential, more like a sleepy country town than a bustling capital.

As Buddhism entered through the Mon people of northern Thailand, Chiang Mai carries a powerful resonance in its mountains. Holy men and spiritual seekers have made countless pilgrimages through these northern lands and you cannot help but sit and internalize the beautiful stillness of the countryside.

You will stay on a lush eco-resort with all the fixings of luxury intermingled with organic farm life. Take a time-out to reflect and connect to the trueness within. Unveil the part of you that you cover up with the distractions of urban drama.

You will be offered three daily healthy meals during the duration of the retreat, except for one dinner outside on Saturday. All the food is organically grown on the eco-farm on the premises. You will be served organic vegetarian Thai Food.

Gluten-free options and other dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Please inform Exodus Retreat at the time of booking in case you have any specific dietary requirement or restriction.

You will also be attending a Thai cooking class where you will learn to distinguish among different kinds of organic herbs, vegetables, and fruits proudly grown on the premises of your accommodation.

It will truly be a unique experience forged in the spirit of love and passion for delicious and nutritious food. With the amazing fresh ingredients and practical hands-on experience, you will be able to cook like the Thai. An experience that is more than just cooking!

Karen Village Visit

The Karen are a tribal group who have historically lived in the hills on the Myanmar side of the Thai border. Best recognized for their elongated necks, the Karen women wear heavy brass rings around their necks, forearms, and shins. While the Karen men are mainly field workers and farmers, the women have a rich history of crafting from wood carving to weaving.

Overall, the long neck tribes live a rugged, tedious, and simple lifestyle, but the fruits of their labor are colorful and very lively. There are still around 40,000 Karen members today, but thousands have had to flee Myanmar over the decades due to political unrest. Fleeing to Thailand was a very safe choice for many, but the ones that came are largely illegal immigrants and do not have options for gaining Thai citizenship.

While things are much better for the Karen who have fled, the lack of opportunity for the long necks has confined the groups to small pockets separate from most of modern Thailand. On one hand, it is beautiful they have been able to keep their traditions alive and, on the other, it is a struggle to balance the new world with the old.

Lunar steam bath

Imagine soaking up the sunset across the rice fields with the mountains of Mae On in the distance as you emerge from a traditional Thai herbal steam. The herbal steams come with many ingredients, but are most usually mixed with kefir lime leaf, lemongrass, pandanas, turmeric, galangal, and more.

As the sun sets and the fire starts, enjoy multiple rounds of steaming and herbal tea. After washing off your edible body scrub, camp out along the fire and maybe take one more swim in the saltwater pool before retiring for the end of a perfect evening.

  • Reseña de Liz Eustace

    "Johnson teaches Anya’s signature class, which is part meditation, alignment, Kinesiology, core and enough Vinyasa flow to remind me it is yoga. Johnson is a fierce teacher with a Zen presence and the class itself brings a keen awareness to your movement."

    "I just had a 2 hour session of Thai Yoga Massage yesterday with Johnson. His gentle soul provided a healing environment, and I felt safe in his hands. His touch was precise, and his manoeuvres were deliberate and purposeful. Johnson's integrated approach gives the individual customised therapy according to their needs. He also provided timely feedback on his observations after the massage session with regards to physical posture, psychological manifestations as well as energetic interpretations. His kind and genuine personality has touched me, and I feel that he sincerely wants to help. Thank you for being an inspiration, Johnson. I am happy to have cross paths with you! :-D"

    "Being a typical guy that loves sport but hates stretching, i have got to the point where yoga/Pilates is now a necessity unless I want to end up with back problems later in life. I have often found myself going to the odd yoga class, trying to hold a static pose and feeling the "delightful" pain in parts of the body which apparently shouldn't be feeling it, and ultimately I don't really feel the benefits. One session with Johnson though, doing "dynamic stretching" and the feeling is completely different. It really focuses on the intended muscles (hamstrings in my case) and not only did he set everything up to facilitate a great one hour lesson, he also gave me really simple things I can do throughout the week when sat in the office or watching tv at home. This is great for me as, like most people, I don't often have a full hour that I can dedicate to stretching. Fully recommended and great guy!"

    "Johnson is a very spiritual healer. His touch is very connected to the body during treatment. He is a very intuitive in his work, always (and somehow) manages to find the main restriction or tension in the body. And to add on to that, his treatments always leave me wanting more! His friendly and warm personality makes him a delight and joy to look forward to in every meeting. I recommend that you arrange a treatment session with him."

    "Do not miss an opportunity to experience Johnson. He is a highly skilled and knowledgeable yoga teacher and energy healer. I have been one of Johnson's yoga students and undergone extensive energy healing sessions for several years. I have also attended many of Johnsons workshops and retreats in the United States and abroad. I recommend him with all my heart. Johnson's presence is ethereal. He also has a divine ability to download everything there is to know about your body and use this information to teach and treat you. I traveled to India during 110 degree temperatures and monsoons just so I could receive the healing and transformational benefits of Johnson's skills. Be prepared to work hard. Johnson does not mess around and your life will change. You will also have a great time. Hanging out with Johnson is so much fun!"

  • Reseña de Jaqueline de Estados Unidos

    "When I had my first Thai bodywork session with Johnson, I felt the difference in my body and mind. Johnson treated me with compassion and care. His love for his practice shows through his gentleness and respect for your aches and pain. I highly recommend Johnson to anyone who has never experienced a Thai massage."

  • Reseña de Hilel de Estados Unidos

    "I had always wanted to try yoga and at the same time I felt like I was in need of massage to loosen and stretch my body. I could never get out to a class so I wanted someone that could come to me and work with my schedule. Johnson combines the best of both into our now regular sessions which i look forward to every week. It really does great things for the mind and body and it makes a difference I can actually feel. I really recommend it!"
