Doi Inthanon and the Waterfalls.
Doi Inthanon is Thailand’s highest mountain and is protected within a large national park. It is surrounded by a number of breathtaking waterfalls and has great nature trails. We like to go in August which is the rainiest month since at this time the flow of water over the falls is at its highest.
Glamping at Mon Chem.
Mon Chem is a high mountain North West of Chiang Mai in an area populated mostly by the Hmong hill tribe. It has beautiful views and gardens and a crazy mountain dirt road down which we can ride on home made teakwood go karts! (At your own risk 🙂 ). In the local area are many activities including the ‘Jungle Coaster’, a great botanical garden, an elephant centre, insect zoo, and snake show.
The Hmong people have installed glamping ‘domes’ which are fun to stay in.
Party weekend in Pattaya.
Pattaya is Thailand’s party town. A crazy place which has to be seen to be believed. Not somewhere for the health conscious to stay too long but great for a weekend. We are going to try organising an annual visit for those who want.
North of Chiang Mai lies Doi Chiang Dao, Thailands tallest limestone mountain riddled with mysterious caves, Mae Salong, the high mountain Chinese tea growing centre, Chiang Rai with its famous white temple and the golden triangle where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. This is a longer excursion, maybe 3 nights. Exact itinerary to be agreed between those who are going.
Master Iain’s birthday party.
On or around October 20. Generally held in Chiang Mai, beginning with sightseeing then dinner then often a trip to watch Thai boxing then ending in one of Chiang Mai’s better bars.

Are Saying About Us
It was one of my best lifestyle experiences so far. The lessons were intense, diverse, fun, challenging, sometimes mentally tough but so rewarding making progress each minute of the training. Master Iain has build something special over there and he is indeed a true Master. His wisdom and knowledge being shared over there is just fantastic.
I’ve been there thinking to have a short break and just some physical activities but it ended up that I just totally changed my way of looking at life…
I never felt so healthy and refreshed. Gorgeous landscape and grounds, incredible meditation and kung fu lessons, comfortable rooms and wonderful people.
Having no martial arts experience and quite poor body coordination, I wanted to see if I could keep up with the demanding training program. I have spent a month here and thanks to the kind, caring and respectful guidance of the teachers (especially Andy and Master Iain), I have rediscovered what my body is capable of and how hard work and persistence can really push or even break your self-imposed boundaries.
I went with an open mind but did wonder how, at 55 I would cope with the training. I knew I needed to kick start my fitness and do something about my health – my posture was poor and I had felt drained of energy from work and a busy life as a solo dad; I wanted my mind to calm down and reclaim who I used to be…
Although I consider my fitness level above average, the training had been a tough reality check, especially for my flexibility. However, after training around 35 hours per week, I had done some massive improvements and learned a lot about my body, kung-fu and life in general.
The training develops your body and coordination. We loved the Kung Fu training for combat and self-defence, and as well the Chi Kung (Qigong). Meditation for health, vitality and enlightenment.
I personally am rigid, highly strung and inflexible which required a lot of patient attention from each instructor and Master Iain however they each took the necessary time to ensure I got the most out of my retreat.
I had knee and back issues for the last 3 years. Nam Yang really helped me manage these chronic injuries, through stretching, good posture and the general strengthening exercises we did day to day. Speak to Master Iain like I did if you are affected by anything like this.
I can’t make the full 5 weeks: can I sign up for just part of this?
Yes. You can just book at our normal prices for as long as you want to come. You will be able to join in with all of the activities that are running during the time that you are with us.
