Integral Travel 5th
Thai Yoga Massage Tour!
Andaman Discovers was proud to host the group from integral Travel for the fifth year! The group of 9 visited the North Andaman Coast, as part of a two month tour, to practice traditional Thai massage and Yoga while enjoying the culture and nature of this special corner of Thailand.
After spending a week on the lush island of Koh RA at the eco-lodge, the group took a longtail boat ride over to Koh Phratong and the Ta Pae Yoi village homestay. The ladies were able to practice their new massage skills on the villagers and held a yoga workshop at the school for the students. It was a great way for cultural exchange to take place in a beautiful atmosphere!
Throughout their days in the village, the group was able to talk with their homestay families while engaging in educational activities such as a Savahanna tour, Buddhist temple visit and making delicious Thai desserts!
Moving onto the mainland and Kuraburi, the group took a few days to study with local massage legend Pa Nak to learn her traditional ‘Sen Line’ massage. The women learned the massage through demonstration and a translator guiding them through the movements. After the relaxing and educational massage training in Kuraburi, they headed onto the Khao Sok Lake for a week of jungle yoga. AD was happy to host the cultural exchange portion of their trip and looking forward to another group next year!
