Yoga at the Sanctuary

The Sanctuary Yoga is one of the oldest regular yoga programmes in Thailand. For over 25 years, we have offered a wide variety of transformative and fun yoga classes. Our yoga classes are tailored for people of all levels and experience. Beginners can learn the basics and continue to build their yoga practice; more experienced students can come join us to take their yoga to the next levels of depth. Truly, Sanctuary Yoga is for everyone.

We offer 2 regular daily classes, each with its own flavour. Morning class is more dynamic and is similar to the Vinyasa Flow style, but with lots of breath, philosophy and meditation mixed in. Afternoon class is quieter, focusing on stretching and releasing in the Yin Yoga style.

Great vibes healthy environment for people who are into yoga and healing.
One of the best places on the planet to rest, rejuvenate and recharge. Every time I leave I am so filled with gratitude that this magical place exists. The food, vibe, beautiful jungle, treatments, yoga and incredible people make it, quite simply, heaven on earth <3
Cosy restaurant tucked under the rocks on the beach. Catering to the yoga crowd. Fresh and healthy dishes in a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff also with our kid. They also offer several bungalows. The beach itself is scenic but the sand pretty coarse and there are rocks in the water for most of the beach which make it a bit hard to enter and swim
Went with a yoga studio and our group was so well taken care of! Private beach, good food, excellent spa services and they helped organize our outings. Definitely recommend for a good combination of relaxation and adventure!
This place really is a sanctuary. I felt instantly at home, the staff are So lovely, the setting is beautiful, the yoga classes are top notch, the food is delicious, the detox program comprehensive and I felt very taken care of, and the bungalows are great... this was my first, but definitely not my last time at this little slice of heaven.
So much fun even in the rain,,with many things to do,,, I'm doing a cleanse at the excellent wellness centre (lost 8kg already this is the only place to go). Peter Clifford ,,, the best & most fun yoga teacher I know,, with Ben & Johnny also great fun,,, open Mic's on Thursday,,, film nights,,, Healing centre-tea temple ,,, with great healers to help the cleanse. & the best Steam room I've ever been in,,, And of course the best restrante & most friendly staff on the island,,, ( maybe I don't think of food ). First class 5 stars +++
The sancturary is devine!!! The place, the staff, the food. I ran a yoga retreat here and I'll definitely be back. Love you guys 🔥🧡
This resort is a great place, it offers yoga classes from great teachers, detox’s, different courses, etc. The Restaurant is very confortable and is well known for its delicious vegetarian meals, smoothies, cocktails, …The bungalows and houses are very nice too. A very nice environment with a friendly staff.The beach is quiet, not close to parties and you don’t see any sight of cars or motorcycles whatsoever. Every Thursday there is a Open Mic ! A very chilling place.

I'll never forget how kind and caring the staff is at The Sanctuary. I still remember Sam & Chard! Hoping to make it back there sooner than later. Great options for vegans & vegetarians. Not to mention the most fabulous healing one can get such as meditation, yoga, water healing & cleansing. Keep up the good work folks!!

Loved the food, yoga classes, the service in the restaurant, very attentive and professional! Didnt stay here but regularly came for yoga and dinner. Also on a beautiful beach.
Have had 2 holidays at the Sanctuary and both have been outstanding.
Staff are super helpful and friendly and facilities are great to chill out or get a full cleanse and yoga going.

If you’re seeking the perfect place to either enjoy silence, yoga, detox or also this beautiful nature, I’d recommend coming to The Sanctuary. The bay where it’s settled is magical, no words can describe it. But be aware that it’s a remote place just to be reached by taxi boat or jungle taxi. Greeting to Nolan and all he Sanctuary staff
I was reccomended to visit the Sanctuary. Staff are so genuinely friendly and helpful. My room, food and service is Taylor made to suit the guests whether you are there for a Detox, yoga or just a relax like myself. Have to travel by boat takes 15 min and makes it all the more special. Also 15 min walk takes you over the headland to a smaller beautiful beach with drinks and foods for sale . No main shop which is actually a lovelly experience all round . Thankyou

@thesanctuarythailand is an Incredible place. A tiny piece of heaven on earth with a private beachWe have all been there. We feel tired and we feel we can just not stop thinking. When your head spins around the same thoughts causing anxiety- you just need a break and re center your focus. Sometimes we need to get away from all of it and the sanctuary is just this place. Far away from everything and only accessible by boat it’s the perfect secluded piece of heaven.If you are looking for a place with a slow pace to recollect yourself, to detox and to be stronger than you have ever been - this is your place. The surrounding just immerses within you and makes you to want to get up early to do yoga and to fuel your body with healthy ingredients.I was also very impressed how they never run out of delicious cold fresh coconut considering that they can only bring groceries by boat.They really do their best to still provide you luxury 5 start treatment while being in the middle of nowhere. Can’t wait to be back 🐒🐒❤️❤️
We stayed at the sanctuary and we spent an incredible time there. The staff is the most welcoming and attentive we have ever met. Also a big thank you to Randall for an amazing yoga experience. We’re definitely coming back!!

Tips and tools to enhance the quality of your daily life.

Interview with Peter

Most people breathe unconsciously throughout the day. Breathing is something we’ve never learned how to do, we just started doing it from the moment we were born.

Breath is Life

Breathing is something we do every day. But how many seconds, how many minutes or hours a day are you aware of the way you breathe?

Moments of Stillness

Creating moments of stillness in your life, a space within your busy life to just be with yourself where you can reflect, wonder, be curious… a space of discovery, of learning something new about yourself.

We are much more than we believe we are.

Aren't you curious?

Curious what your true potential is?
