Daily Drop in Yoga Classes
Hatha Yoga Classes Held Daily
What is Yoga? Yoga means union of the mind, body and spirit with the Divine and while this refers to a certain state of conciousness both individual and Universal, it is also a method to help one reach that goal.
We teach a traditional, exact and easy-to-learn system that aims at naturally achieving the goal through creating a healthy body and mind that leads to spiritual evolvement.
Based in the teachings of Swami Sivananda, Swami Vishnudevananda summarized the yoga philosophy in 5 principles or the Five Points of Yoga which make the complex teachings of yoga easier to understand.
What our guests are saying....

Master Cleanse & Fasting - Total Body Detox Retreat
Our Master Cleanse is one of our most popular fasting programs. Beginning with a gentle pre-cleanse that will prepair your body for your total detox experience. In this program we combine Ayurvedic principles with complete fasting for a whole body & mind detox. After completing this program you will leave with the tools you need to continue on your journey to health.
Ayurvedic Detox & Cleansing Retreats
Cleansing and fasting gives our body a break from the toxins we regularly ingest. The impurities we breathe in the air. The environments that we move through and live in. And the psychological stress that builds up within our bodies due to busy lifestyles, poor eating habits, and processed foods that have now become staples of modern life.
Our peaceful and healing environment is designed to promote cleansing and healing of your body.
Ayurvedic Wellness Retreat
For those who do not want to do a cleanse but enjoy delving into relaxation, nurturing and experimenting with alternative Ayurvedic treatment modalities combined with your tropical Thailand vacation.
We offer 3, 5, 7 and 10 day Ayurvedic Wellness Retreats. We have observed from experience that people can really get the most out of their time over a 7 to 10 day period. It takes a few days just to let go. We do also offer 3 or 5 days to suit people with a busy schedule. You can also extend one of these program times on a daily basis adding on whichever therapies and treatments you desire.
This very personal yoga retreat will give you the skills and knowledge you need to build and continue a well rounded and stable personal yoga practice. Immerse yourself in nature while practicing daily yoga and meditaiton, healthy eating and optional spa treatments. This is our most popular Yoga Retreat program.
Self Healing Retreats
Sometimes, all we need is a bit more love in life. Most times, we need it from ourselves. Monte Vista offers a safe and confidential environment where you can have the freedom to express yourself fully – and in the process, fully learn and experience who you are. Individual sessions of Counselling, Life Coaching, Spiritual Coaching, Sacred Breath etc will give you a new perspective on some of the core beliefs, emotions and behavioral patterns that repeat and create issues and the obsolete mental programming in your life. Work out issues from the past and learn how to live in the present.
