Holidays are meant to be relaxing, but sometimes, in all the rush of hopping between flights and ticking off items on your itinerary, it’s hard to find some down time. In recent years Southeast Asia has seen a massive influx in tourists who are looking for a yoga retreat where they have space to completely relax and reach inner peace before heading back home. Though yoga is not an integral part of the Thai culture it is a very spiritual country and its incredible and breathtaking landscapes ooze a sense of calm.
Thailand has a great mix of that urban bustle and beach ease, but if you need a little more help with a holiday rejuvenation fix, yoga is the way to go. Whether you’re a travelling yogi who wants to keep up with a practice or it’s your first downward dog, Bangkok is a great place for yoga, with excellent yoga facilities like at Theo Living for all of your yoga practice needs.
Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realise why. Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action at every turn. Marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk tuk along the bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets. Food is another Bangkok highlight, from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants. Luxury malls compete with a sea of boutiques and markets, where you can treat yourself without overspending. Extravagant Luxury hotels and surprisingly cheap serviced apartments welcome you with the same famed Thai hospitality.
There’s a reason why so many people are choosing to indulge in yoga retreats, especially in Thailand. They truly do open you up and are one of the best breaks from work or long-term travel that will benefit you long after you step off your mat.
