Origin Yoga & Wellness is a boutique retreat center offering yoga holidays created with love, consideration, and attention to your spiritual growth and physical well-being. They limit the retreat programs to no more than 8 participants at a time.

You can expect a complete yoga practice including asana (physical postures), pranayama (control of the breath), meditation, and ancient wisdom of natural healing for a truly balanced, grounded, and holistic experience.
This weekend retreat includes an afternoon of private guided nature and cultural tour to a local attraction, as well as one visit to an outdoor luxury hot spring. Depending on the weather, local attraction may vary from hiking to waterfall, mindfulness walk along cherry blossom, a visit to the mountain monastery, or sampling the culinary delights and architecture wonders of old town.
Lydia Chang is the co-founder, creative director and principal teacher for the regularly scheduled weekend retreat and signature yoga vacation at Origin Yoga & Wellness. In 2014, she traveled to India and completed the 200-hours teacher training with Patanjali International Yoga Foundation. She dedicated herself ever since to the practice, study and teaching of yoga. While rooted in classical Hatha yoga, Lydia continued to deepen her practice and expand the scope of her studies in Ashtanga and Ayurveda yoga.
This retreat takes place at the most northern tip of Taiwan, reachable by car from Taipei in less than 1.5 hours making it the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. The northern coastal region is complete with beautiful beaches, natural hot springs, lush green forests, mountain temples, traditional farms, Sakura plantations, cycling trails, surfing and other water activities.
What makes Origin Yoga & Wellness most special is that their yoga space is hidden inside a rustic building by the ocean that's been abandoned for 40+ years. The exterior of the building may not be pretty, but when you step inside, it is a secluded heaven with a stunning panoramic ocean view that brings peace and joy to your heart. This special place exemplify what yoga is truly all about: an inward journey to connect with our natural self.
