Where to do yoga on Ko Tao

Our rating:

Yoga is an island mainstay in Thailand, and while the yoga scene isn’t as developed as on say neighbouring Ko Pha Ngan or Ko Samui, but there are still plenty of options should you want to throw down a yoga mat.

Shambala, located within Blue Wind Resort towards the northern end of Sairee Beach is the longest running sala on the island. They offer beginner friendly, multi-level Hatha Yoga sessions on a drop-in basis for 300 baht per session (10 session pass for 2,500 baht). Classes are twice daily, seven days a week.
