Mala Dhara Eco Resort in Chiang Mai was envisioned first and foremost as a yoga retreat center to support the Chiang Mai Yoga Community and the increasingly large number of international visitors to Chiang Mai seeking the exploration, study and practice of yoga. While we primarily host yoga retreats created for those pursuing the benefit of specific schools of knowledge and study, we also offer a weekend yoga retreat every month during the high season for anyone who wants to simply get out into nature, escape, get away and leave it all behind, eat only healthy food, play, laugh, learn and ….simply do some yoga. Oh yes, and relax… chill… steam… swim… and breathe.
Our curriculum is carefully crafted by the founder of Mala Dhara, Kru Ploy. Yoga Asana classes will also be taught by Ploy when in residence or by the resident instructor at Mala Dhara during your retreat stay. All resident instructors are carefully chosen based on experience and knowledge.
Duration: 3 Nights & 2 Days
Arrival time is around 2:00 pm on the Thursday afternoon, and our first yoga asana class is that evening, followed by our first meal. We officially begin the first “full day” of our weekend yoga retreat at 7am on the morning of Friday.
This allows you to finish up on Sunday early afternoon with enough time for you to get back to Chiang Mai, just 30 minutes away, while it is still light out.
Lunch is followed by a late room check out of 1:00 on Sunday. The salt water pool and Mala Dhara facilities are available to you for the rest of the afternoon
