Yoga and Butoh in Thailand

This retreat is an immersive experience designed to re-charge and re-inspire artists away from the pressures of daily life. It is also open to non-artists looking to give themselves the gift of a “creative workout”, and some time out to reflect, rejuvenate and find balance in the increasingly busy rhythm of our contemporary lives.

Useful Information

Prior to Covid 19 most people from western countries can receive a 30 day visa exemption when you arrive to the Kingdom of Thailand by air. We strongly recommend that you check with your own country’s embassy or consulate to verify your exact requirements.

The 30 day visa exemption can typically be extended for an additional 30 days with a quick visit to the immigration office on Koh Samui.

We except that these visa regulations will be reinstated after the Covid 19 crisis has passed.

Any deposit paid will be fully refundable if Covid 19 restrictions causes a change in plans.

The CDC and WHO recommend the following vaccines for Thailand: typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, cholera, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, and influenza. However, none of these vaccines are required.

The risk for Zika virus on Koh Phangan is moderate. Reports of malaria are rare.
