Join Leigh and Emma for a week of divine yogic bliss and water fun! Salute the sun daily from our bamboo yoga pavilion floating on a lake in Southern Thailand.  Embrace this opportunity to deepen your yoga practice amidst the magnificence and mystery of Khao Sok National Park, abundant with wildlife, tropical jungle, peaceful lakes and spectacular limestone rock formations.

This tropical jungle is home to serpent eagles, langur monkeys, gibbons, hornbills, and many other rare birds and animals. It is an incredible opportunity to explore the plant and wildlife of the rainforest and enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, and swimming on this beautiful lake amidst the majestic limestone karats. Relax & rejuvenate!

THAILAND RETREAT REVIEWS

I was fortunate enough to join Leigh on another of her fabulous, adventurous yoga retreats…this time we were invited to Jungle Yoga in Koh Sok National Park. I must say it is one of the most beautiful locations for practicing yoga, touching nature close up, and experiencing a generous and gentle culture.

We floated ourselves to the dining room, to the yoga studio, and our fantastic bungalows…what could be more tropical and out of this world than to dive into the warmest of pure waters in the moonlight…and in the daytime, see and hear the sounds of the jungle while in Vrksasana! It was heaven.

Leigh Evans is an exceptional and knowledgeable teacher…she is sensitive to individual needs and levels of practice…I have followed Leigh from her studio in Brooklyn, to the exotic & diverse places she plans her retreats…I have always had amazing experiences!

This is a great opportunity. I attended Leigh’s past retreat at Jungle Yoga and had a life changing experience. Jungle Yoga is a truly magical place and Leigh is an extremely gifted, generous and dedicated teacher. She gave everybody individual attention. Classes where dynamic and restful at the same time. She met everybody at their level creating a safe and fun environment where everybody could deepen their practice at their own pace. Leigh also brought together a very special group of people where camaraderie and friendships were forged over sharing wonderful experiences together. I recommend this retreat and studying with Leigh to anyone who is interested in developing their yoga practice. Graciela Fuentes
