Description

Venture With Impact and The Now With Nat invite you to bring balance into your life and find rejuvenation in Thailand’s spiritual capital of Chiang Mai. We believe that travel, cultural immersion, wellness, and giving back are the keys to living, which led us to create our program, Wander Within.

During the retreat, guests will have the chance to enjoy the tranquil surroundings of Chapulin Resort (each guest will stay in their own private villa amidst lush rice fields outside of Chiang Mai City) while learning about nutrition, spirituality and mindfulness. We strongly believe in traveling for a purpose and are excited to provide the chance to work hand-in-hand with local non-profits.

Teacher and Host

Partnership with Now With Nat and Venture With Impact. Natalie will be guiding yoga, meditation and one of the talks. Jess Carruth, a holistic and wellness leader, will be offering a class on holistic health.

About your teacher: Based in Bali, Natalie Thomas is a yoga teacher and wellness leader, certified through Yoga Alliance. She teaches a mix of vinyasa and hatha yoga – with a focus of improving one’s life through meditation and travel. She has been studying spiritual practices for seven years, and dedicates her free time to non-profits + raising money for grass-root causes.

About your hosts: Venture with Impact organizes global social impact retreats with the goal of exposing people to new cultures, people and ideas so that they can become more informed and empathetic world citizens, and in the process, provide a positive social impact.

Accommodation

You will stay in a 4-Star retreat center near Chiang Mai in beautiful natural surroundings, Chapulin Natural Resort. All guests will have access to their own villa, and get to experience tranquility in a serene environment.
