Winter Meditation and Yoga Retreat in Chiang Mai

 

 

Suan Sati hosts 6 day 5 night meditation and yoga retreats at our center in Chiang Mai from October to February. This yoga retreat is focused on bringing you into a deeper awareness of your body, mind, and heart in order to align your daily actions with your life’s intention. The retreat features twice daily yoga and meditation sessions, daily workshops on a diverse group of topics, and plenty of time to relax and unwind. A yoga retreat at Suan Sati will bring you deeper into your authentic self in an open-hearted, fun way. Here you will be supported by the community of like-minded people dedicated to self-discovery.

While on your retreat, you are invited to observe a digital detox. This is a great chance to disconnect from the outer world and to connect deeper with yourself, the other retreat participants, and the retreat program itself. While some may have initial resistance to being “disconnected” for a few short days, from our experience, by the end of the retreat it is appreciated by all. If you have some urgent need to connect, of course we will give you a hotspot. We understand that some people work online, or have family issues that require attention. We just ask that any device usage is done away from other guests so as not to distract them from their digital detox.

Meditation and Yoga Program

We practice Vipassana meditation as a meditation practice, but retreat participants are welcome to practice in their own personal style that suits them. Buddhist teachings are offered to support this meditation practice and also the practice of Life. In the morning, the yoga is dynamic, varying between Hatha and Vinyasa with other elements mixed in that we’ve learned along the path. In the afternoon, generally we practice a gentle slow flow, restorative, or yin style designed to cool and balance the morning class. Beginner yogis as well as experienced practitioners are welcome! The teaching style integrates all students in multi-level classes with options for those with injuries and limitations and also for those who want to build fire while taking their practice to the next level. Here is an in depth view into our yoga vision.

What’s Included?

Suan Sati’s Winter Retreat is all-inclusive of 3 plant-based meals per day, accommodation, the meditation and yoga program, and round-trip transportation from our designated pickup point in the old city. We appreciate when the price that’s listed is what we actually pay, so we make sure that you don’t have to spend anything more than what’s listed. Optional activities that are not included in the price are things like private one-on-one yoga sessions and physiotherapy sessions for example. These are seasonal and depend on the staff on site at that time.
