Perched on a hillside overlooking thick jungle and set back about one kilometre from Haad Salad, The Yoga Retreat is a wonderful place to relax and focus on your well being. Students here are often on week- or month-long retreats, and some of the classes are limited to a minimum one-week daily commitment. Three classes allow drop-ins, for a cost of 300 baht.

Set by the ocean in the Seethanu area, Orion Healing Centre is ideally located for mindful yoga sessions, and offers multiple classes a day. Orion also provides longer yoga packages, teacher training and detox courses among others. See their website for full details. Drop-in is 400 baht.

The three beaches of Haad Thian, Haad Yuan and Why Nam on Ko Pha Ngan’s east coast are very popular with yoga-inclined travellers. The Sanctuary on Haad Thian offers a variety of activities including thrice daily yoga classes on the rise behind the resort - drop-in costs 350 baht. Bamboo Huts on Haad Yuan is extremely popular with yoga teacher training courses, including Blooming Lotus Yoga and on Haad Why Nam there is a yoga platform on the headland where yoga sessions are held early most mornings.
