Welcome to the Jungle!

Spend eight days blissfully disconnected from the modern world. No e-mail, no phone calls, no texts, and no social media. It’s just you and your companions, connecting to yourselves, each other, and the natural world during this all-inclusive rejuvenating retreat.

Your journey begins in a long-tail boat, riding across a pristine lake into the heart of the Thai jungle. You wind your way past towering limestone cliffs and miles of meandering coastline until you reach a remote corner of the lake. There, atop the deep blue water and nestled below a ring of ancient trees, floats a bamboo rafthouse – your home for the next week!

Each morning you wake up just as the first rays of sun start dancing on the water. You wander over to the floating sala for morning yoga, then glide back to the main deck for a delicious and healthy breakfast. After a dip in the silky, cool water, you get ready for the morning’s activity: a hike through the jungle to get to a cave you can explore.

Upon returning to the village, you inhale a breeze rich with garlic, ginger, and lemongrass coming from the kitchen. Yum! Pad Thai for lunch!


WELLNESS: Massage + Cranial Sacral

MINDFULNESS: Yoga + Qigong + Meditation

ACTIVITIES: Swimming + Canoeing + Cave Exploration

FOOD: the most amazing & fresh Thai food you’ve ever had!

LODGING: a floating bamboo village on Rajaphraba Lake in Khao Sok National Park

After lunch, you jump in one of the kayaks and set off to explore another corner of the lake. A patch of swaying bamboo catches your eye, so you paddle in for a closer look. Now just a few feet from the shoreline, you spot a whole family of monkeys peering out at you from the trees.

Eventually, you paddle back to the village and climb into the hammock that hangs on the porch of your private ‘jungalow’. Soon you are fast asleep, swinging to the rhythm of a thousand gentle waves.

After a peaceful nap, you rise deeply rested and dive into the lake to enliven your mind and body. A lone Macaque wanders over to the edge of the sala. He sits and watches the class with interest before he goes back to hunting for snails.

Soon the cicadas start to sing, signaling that it is almost dinner time. You join the group on the main deck and enjoy sampling every Thai delicacy on the buffet – chile fried fish, Panang curry with tofu, jungle greens, fresh pineapple, and mango…

After dinner, you decide to stretch out on the deck cushions and watch the stars, which are as bright as you have ever seen them thanks to the new moon…
