Tucked away in a small and authentically Thai neighbourhood, behind Fon Soy Temple and the Chiang Mai Gate Market, Wild Rose Yoga Studio was redesigned from a wooden Thai heritage market house, with a lush urban garden.
Wild Rose Yoga has been a school for yoga in Thailand for over 10 years in the same gorgeous location, right in the middle of the old city – the cultural heart of the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. The yoga studio has participated in and contributed to the evolution of yoga in Chiang Mai and Thailand through a decade of trainings, workshops, immersions and daily yoga classes.
The location of Wild Rose Yoga Studio, in the South of the Chiang Mai Old City, behind the Chiang Mai Gate Market, is ideal to find accommodation and meals according to fit your budget and needs. There are plenty of guesthouses and places to eat, both vegetarian and vegan, at walking distance. The studio is also an easy walk to the Buak Hard Park, a popular destination for yoga in the park.
The last week of the yoga teacher training, we will treat ourselves to a week in a beautiful eco resort & yoga retreat center with a salt water swimming pool, surrounded by nature, rice paddies, green hills, near a small Thai village. This oasis of abundance of yummy veggie food, tastefully decorated accommodation and hot springs will be the perfect way to celebrate our journey and deepen our practice of yoga, together.
