'From the Inside Out' Transforming the Relationship with Yourself and Others

  • Maladhara Maladhara
  • Chiang Mai, Thailand
  • Nov 19 - 23, 2019 (5 days)

About This Event

Nurture the relationship with your whole being by connecting with the many parts of your selves: the physical, mental, emotional, and energy body. When we practice awareness and a healthy relationship with ourselves, it extends out into our relationships, job, lifestyle, and how we engage with the world.

YOGA can be for EVERY BODY and experienced in a non-competitive environment where the vibe is warm, gentle, supportive, and fun. Our Hatha yoga classes are suited for all levels with the goal being self-care, not advanced poses. In addition to yoga, you will experience a variety of unique wellness modalities. 

This is not yoga or meditation boot camp! Yoga is not about showing off your body or contorting yourself into poses that go past your limits. It's about building the relationship to yourself and noticing what's happening on the inside-- your physical, mental, emotional, and energetic sensations.

"There's a wide range of classes from yoga to walking meditation to TRE (trauma release exercises), The teacher has a soothing voice and is clear in her instructions, offering alternative poses for different strengths and abilities. She spent time getting to know everyone, creating an atmosphere that was very familiar and comfortable. She really is one of those people who are beautiful inside and out. ~Emily, China

Located 45 minutes from the old city of Chiang Mai, Thailand, Mala Dhara Eco Resort is set among the rice fields in a quaint village. If you will be flying, there are several cheap flights offered from the domestic airport in Bangkok (DMK) through Air Asia and Nok Air to Chiang Mai (CNX). Sometimes, Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways also have good deals, and they fly from the international airport in Bangkok (BKK) to Chiang Mai (CNX). Many international airlines fly to Chiang Mai, ie. Kuala Lumpur (KUL), Incheon/Seoul (ICN), etc. An airport pick-up from CNX to Mala Dhara can be arranged for an additional charge. (500 THB one way, per car, up to 4 people. 800 baht THB roundtrip, per car, up to 4 people.) We will try to group participants together for ridesharing, and the cost will be split evenly among the number of passengers.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
