As you might know, Sri Lanka is going through hard times at the moment. We feel that we need to support the people and businesses of Sri Lanka by hosting our events in Lagoon Paradise Beach Resort as planned.

If, for some reason, it should become impossible to travel to Sri Lanka, we have a plan B. We will then switch to Thailand and stay in a wonderful resort that we have used for many years, not far from Chiang Mai.


A Green juice for breakfast, a substantial lunch and a light evening meal are included in the yoga teacher training Thailand fee.

All meals are healthy, wholesome & vegetarian and will include tofu dishes, brown rice & fresh fruits. Food is prepared without the use of monosodium glutamates.

Special diets like Gluten intolerant and non-diary can easily be catered for

Breakfast – Green Vegetable blended drink + Muesli/nuts/dried fruits + coconut milk
Lunch – 1 Thai Dish, Rice, Salad  +  fruits
Dinner – Large Salad with beans or pulses  + Hot soup

Each Sunday is a Purification day. eg Green juice only all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner or a day of vegetable soup
Students who do not wish to participate can organise and pay separately for alternative meals.
