How to Practice Yoga on a Budget in Thailand

Do you want to practice yoga in Thailand, eat healthily and make the most of the sun? At first glance, it seems to be an expensive holiday option, but it really doesn’t have to be. The key to practising yoga on a budget in Thailand is not to book yourself into a retreat.  There are many yoga centres in Thailand that offer high-quality and affordable drop-in classes. You can eat, sleep and do yoga classes for as little as £25 a day. Here is a selection of yoga centres we recommend.

Chiang Mai Yoga

The Yoga Tree

The Yoga Tree is a beautiful centre on the city’s outskirts and offers three sessions of yoga, qi gong, dance and meditation per day. On Sundays, there is only one session, which is gentle yoga. Classes only cost 300 baht, so this is a great place to practice yoga on a budget in Thailand. This centre has a wonderful reputation and they have a real community feel and an active Facebook Page

Ocean Sound Dive and Yoga

‘Ocean Sound’ offers around three yoga classes a day, either Hatha, Vinyasa or Yin. Each class is 300 baht, and there are discounts for purchasing in bulk. While this place is fundamentally a dive centre, they take their yoga very seriously, having world-class guest teachers and plenty of workshops. Dive Centres and Yoga Centres fit well together. 

Koh Phangan Yoga

Orion Healing Centre

Koh Phangan is a hot spot for yoga centres, detox centres, meditation centres, Reiki and all things zen and is probably the best place to practice yoga on a budget in Thailand.

Far too many people avoid this pretty little island because of the Full Moon Party, but trust me, this place is perfect for those who want to practice yoga, detox or meditate. Like many centres in this blog, Orion Healing Centre offers retreat packages which are quite inexpensive, and they also offer 6 drop-in classes a day for 300 baht each. One of the big draws of this place is the vegan/vegetarian restaurant. It is delicious!

The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary on the island of Koh Phangan is only accessible by boat, and although it is a short distance from Had Rin Town, most people choose to stay at the resort in order to take their yoga classes. They offer three daily classes at 8 am, 10.30 am and 4 pm. 90-minute classes cost 350 baht each, or you can buy 7 class tickets for 2,100 Baht. No booking is required, but you must book your accommodation. The resort has a great range of affordable accommodations, a restaurant with great vegan options and a lively evening atmosphere on what is essentially a private beach.

Koh Lanta Yoga

Oasis Yoga

Oasis Yoga is one of Thailand’s best places to practice yoga on a budget. It is based on Klong Dao Beach, and they offer Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin with at least two sessions hosted per day for people at every level. Each session is 400 baht, and there are discounts for bulk booking. Oasis Yoga also has a delicious juice bar. They are not associated with any resort but have a lovely space not far from a wide choice of accommodation.

Easy to practice yoga in Thailand

In conclusion, practicing yoga on a budget in Thailand is not only feasible but also a highly rewarding experience. The yoga centers mentioned in this blog, from Chiang Mai’s Yoga Tree to Oasis Yoga in Koh Lanta, offer affordable and quality yoga sessions that cater to all levels. These places embody the essence of Thailand’s yoga scene, providing serene environments and expert guidance at a fraction of the cost of a full retreat. So, whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a beginner, these centers are perfect for those looking to practice yoga on a budget in Thailand. Remember, the key to a fulfilling yoga journey in Thailand is to explore, stay open-minded, and immerse yourself in the local yoga community. With these tips, practicing yoga on a budget in Thailand can be an enriching and accessible adventure for all.
