6 days in the Presence of Elephants Yoga Retreat in Thailand

Ganesha Park, 31 Mho 8 - Wangdong - Mueang Kanchanaburi - Kanchanaburi 71190 - Thailand

Yoga Retreat in peace with Elephants

Dates in early 2021 will be announced soon and upon request.

An extraordinary experience with elephants in Thailand, a week-long yoga retreat in their presence.

Enhance your connection to your inner being self thanks to their deep wisdom with the aid of their wisdom. During this week, you will experience this inner journey with several yoga practices, classical Hatha yoga, Vinyasa, Yin yoga, Restorative yoga and yoga Nidra as well as meditations, and dances. Let your heart speak up.

Petra and Annie will accompany you on this journey with yoga practices, meditations, breathing and times for a community and exchange. If all this resonates with your heart, go for it and join us!

This deep and meaningful experience will be very special given the proximity with the elephants, these wise souls that live there, in a respectful environment, close to their natural habitat.

It is in this environment where elephants are treated respectfully that yoga is practiced, according to their rhythm.

At GaneshaPark the main languages are French, English and Thai. Classes are guided by American teacher and all organization is well adapted to English language speakers.

Contemplate the life of elephants and discover their daily lives in an area run by a French family settled in Thailand for more than twelve years. The herd of elephants is happy and well cared for. An ideal place for a community to learn with animals how to help with joy, strength, and wisdom.

Daily practice of different forms of yoga, punctuated by meditations and circles of thoughts will help you to recharge.

This authentic experience will remain etched in your heart.

Group of 8 people maximum.

The sanctuary can be called "a family home" for elephants.

The guardian of the place, Kenji, received "the call" from his father to continue and build a "Safe place for elephants".

The adventure has started more than twenty years ago, and the family has worked restlessly since.

A place of healing, a sanctuary where elephants can live at their own pace. Most of them are at a retirement age and rescued from a tourist camp where they knew the hardship that scarved their skin.

Their body and soul are being in a healing process since.

Program

The highlight if this retreat is five full days of guided interactions with the elephants.

Your yoga days will be adapted to the rhythm of the elephant heard.

Yoga class is held twice in a yoga room and is both in English and French adapted to the language of participants. The languages spoken in the elephant sanctuary are English, French and Thai.
