Founded by David Sharpe these yoga holidays Thailand began in 2005, when he found Koh Yoa Noi, a Thai Island that was away from the busy tourist centers, a quiet, enchanted place that proved a lovely setting for yoga retreats in Thailand. The approach here is a “no frills” stay at Ulmar's Nature Lodge which is owned by a local Thai family.


Island Yoga hosts vacation retreats that are suitable for all levels of

students; from beginner Yogis to advanced practitioners. You can start the 3, 5 & 7 night programs at any time - there are no set dates, and all of our programs feature our full spectrum approach to yoga.

There are also options to join “yogi adventure” outings, workshop

intensives, early morning meditations, family dinners, kirtan events and

special interest movie nights. The programs allow you plenty of time during he day to relax, reconnect with yourself and explore this magical island. Koh Yao Noi is a particularly quiet and peaceful island which enhances the Thailand Yoga Vacation experience.

Our retreats are fun, inspiring and affordable - and will help open your heart and move you towards a more conscious and empowered life.
