As an adult, a whole new journey began in her life, the yogi's journey, and for the last twenty-plus years, Valerie has been humbled and grateful daily for the bounty of gifts that yoga has bestowed upon her. Her intention in opening The Yoga Shala (in 2003) was to share this bounty with others. Traveling to India to experience the birthplace of yoga with her students is a dream come true.

    This retreat will take place in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Bangkok, Thailand.

    Chiang Mai

    Within this modern, vibrant city lies an ancient history and connection to the Lanna Kingdom. A blissful calm and a relaxed pace are the "inner heartbeat" of this northern city. Elaborate Buddhist temples, street markets, and fabulous food invite you to discover a city that is still firmly Thai in atmosphere and attitude.

    Chiang Rai

    Chiang Rai was founded in the 13th century, as part of the Lao-Thai Lanna Kingdom. The ancient city is known for its local markets, exceptional street food, and an abundance of wats (Buddhist temples), including the famous Baan Dam (Black Temple) and Wat Rong Khun (White Temple). Outside the city, a number of national parks afford visitors an up-close opportunity to see and experience Thailand's elephant conservation efforts.

    Bangkok

    Bangkok, Thailand's capital, is a large city known for ornate shrines and a vibrant street life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds a network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to the opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew. Everywhere you look in Bangkok, you are a witness to a blending of old and new, where the shiny sits right beside the grit. It is these contrasts and contradictions that give the City of Angels its rich personality.

    You will be served daily breakfast during the whole trip. This retreat also features four additional meals throughout the duration of your journey.
