Daily Yoga Classes

at The Sanctuary Thailand

From Movement to Stillness & Silence. May we experience the True Love that we are.

Yoga is an ancient art of self-development, used for thousands of years for physical health, mental well-being and spiritual fulfillment. The system is complete and comprehensive in its nature, utilizing body, breath, mind and spirit as tools for transformation. Modern practice involves mainly Asanas (postures) and breath to build good health and harmonious functioning of the whole being.

The meaning of the word yoga is to ‘join together’ the body unites with the breath to develop the mind and spirit, creating a unified and integrated person.

The Sanctuary Thailand does not offer physically dynamic yoga classes, choosing instead to return to Asanas as a focus for breath and stillness, to enhance your experience of tranquility, inner peace, and quiet mind.

We arrived by longboat straight onto the beach. The accommodation was great and adequate for our needs. The views were amazing but more than that the people were so accommodating. Special thanks for Tuna for sorting our accommodation needs and also to Nee for supporting us through our detox.We did a 7.5 day detox and stayed for a total of 18 days. The detox package was well supported and Nam seemed very knowledgeable. We met a great bunch of people also detoxing which was a great support. The yoga also included was excellent with Sophie and Chris.The food in the restaurant is delicious and fully supports post detox eating. William always had a welcoming smile and can do attitude.The 2 surrounding bays are also good with additional restaurants.I would highly recommend this place for either detox or yoga retreat or just to stay as it is idyllicDebi HollingworthDebi Hollingworth ★★★★★ My partner brought me here as he had visited 14 years ago and it didn’t disappoint.

Jane FischerJane Fischer ★★★★★ The Sanctuary lives up to its name. There are no road vehicles (just boat taxis). We love the swimming at Haad Thien beach, the delicious and healthy food, detoxing with assistance of the expert staff at The Wellness Centre, massages and saunas at the Spa, practicing yoga and Tai Chi with excellent teachers and the walks in the jungles. We recently enjoyed our 4th visit to The Sanctuary. The staff at the resort’s reception expertly handled all our concerns and needs. We stayed 11 unforgettable nights in the Ocean View House. The house has a circular view facing the sunrise/moonrise and Koh Phanghan jungle. We look forward to more stays in this house.Response from the ownerThank you for your glowing review! We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay at The Sanctuary. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Rosan CruzRosan Cruz ★★★★★ I had an absolutely amazing weeklong experience at The Sanctuary. I booked a 5.5-day detox program. I felt well taken cared of by the staff. They went above and beyond, especially on my fourth day when my energy levels dipped. The nutrition & lifestyle medicine practitioner, Nan, and the entire team were attentive and made sure I had everything I needed to feel revitalized.I particularly enjoyed the variety of spa treatments offered at The Sanctuary. The oil massage, salt scrub, and stomach massage were absolute bliss. The yoga sessions were a fantastic way to start each day.The colonics area at The Sanctuary was clean and well-maintained, providing a comfortable and hygienic space. This aspect added to the overall positive experience, making the detox process smoother and more convenient.I also highly recommend exploring the different healing practitioners available: breath work workshop, and body work sessions, yin yoga.Overall, my 5.5-day detox at The Sanctuary was an exceptional self-care journey. I couldn't be happier with the level of care and attention I received during my stay. Maybe next time I’ll do ten days.Note: go early so you can enjoy Sanctuary’s restaurant. Also try the restaurants nearby: vegan fare at WayNam beach, the red snapper at Bambu Hut, local fare at Love Lips.Daniel LessonsDaniel Lessons ★★★★★ I would say this is one of the most special places I’ve ever visited. The setting is absolutely spectacular. The staff are amazing - so kind, friendly and personable, and just great to hang and chat with. Nan in the wellness centre is unbelievable - she’s kind, incredibly smart, and will answer any questions and help you reach any health goals. Nolan the GM is a legend - lovely guy that makes you feel right at home. Then there’s Cav - he will ensure you’re laughing and having a good time the whole time you’re here - total legend. Nina runs the gym, and it does the best workouts - I wish I had her as my personal trainer forever - she will make you work, but gives you so much kind and warm encouragement. Tash is a lovely Brit, who will have nice little chats and always make sure you’re having a good time, Tuna in the office is a legend, William and Sammy in restaurant are lovely, funny, cool people. The facilities are fantastic - steam room, infrared sauna, movement room, beautiful yoga spots, meditation, healers, massages, facials and more. Food is amazing as well. This is one special place. The only issue, is you might not want to ever leave, and it’s not uncommon for people to stay longer. If you come, you won’t regret it. It’s the best place I’ve ever found.Response from the ownerWow, reading your review put the biggest smile on our faces! 😄 We're beyond thrilled that you found our place so special and unforgettable.

We're over the moon to hear that you've had great experiences with our friendly team, cozy rooms, delicious food, and awesome yoga sessions. Your support means everything to us! Thurman LoveThurman Love ★★★★★ This place is for yogis that are serious about growth! The yoga team of teachers are world class. Randall’s team are creative, spontaneous, inventive and fun! Each morning you climb to the top of a mountain to practice yoga at Buddha Hall. One morning, monkeys practiced right outside the hall with us! The team has tremendous love and respect for the ancient discipline of yoga. We experienced a puja and it was magnificent! Each day you can choose to swim in the ocean, eat incredible food, practice yoga, participate in meditation, cleanse your body, mind and soul. Sepe was a gifted masseuse! The combined pricing is extremely affordable comparative to any Western offerings. If you are able to get here, plan to take a certification and stay for a few months. It is breathtaking. William and the staff are incredible. You will not wear shoes!!! Invest in your self care!Response from the ownerThank you Thurman for leaving a few words. We’re delighted that Randall is offering a consistent practice at Sanctuary.
