Relaxation & Cooking Lessons Weekend Escape With Jacky!
Om Waters Floating Retreat Center
Sri Lanna National Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand
January 23-25, 2015
Join us for the weekend getaway as we take you 1 hour north of Chiang Mai to Sri Lanna National Park and the amazing Om Waters Floating Retreat Center.
We will camp for 3 days and 2 nights, participate in 4 Thai cooking classes, practice easy yoga for all levels, and wake to silent meditation.
Om Waters is located on a private section of the lake in Sri Lanna National Park. We will have our own space for learning, relaxing, swimming, practicing Yoga, exploring by kayak, and enjoying nature.
This is a unique camping experience at an open air retreat center equipped with a kitchen where Jacky creates her magical meals and a common sleeping space with basic accommodations.
You are provided with warm bedding, mosquito nets, all yoga equiptment, and a shared toilet. Please note that this is not a luxurious hotel but is instead a floating oasis surrounded by nature.
There is a large, beautiful wooden Yoga deck and plently of space to relax on 2 lounging decks perfect for getting sun during the day and star gazing at night.
Solar energy provides us with lights at night but there is no Internet, outlets for charging, or mobile service on the lake. This weekend is about disconnecting and relaxing.
The schedule is structured for a slow pace.
We will meet on Friday afternoon at The Cat House for introductions and our first delicious meal together. Our transportation will pick us up around 1:30pm for our drive to the park. Once we arrive at the park we will take a Thai long boat out to the retreat center.
Mornings on OM Waters are magical and we will begin with silent 30min meditation followed by an easy flowing Yoga class great for all levels of students.
After Yoga Jacky will treat us to breakfast and then we have time to digest and relax. Grab a book, write in your journal, take photos of the amazing nature that surrounds you, take out a kayak and explore the calm waters, or take a nap. This is your time to unwind.
Saturday afternoon will include a second easy/partner Yoga class before we enjoy dinner.
Evenings conclude with group time around a fire pit under the stars.
You will be able to participate in 4 separate Thai Cooking lessons with Jacky guiding you to create simple and delicious Thai-Fusion food.
This is an amazing opportunity to get to know more about how Jacky learned all she knows, and how we can recreate the food we love in our homes with the ingredients we have available.

“Jacky is by far the best retreat chef I have ever worked with. She is engaging, joyful and so knowledgeable. She doesn't hesitate to share her gift and love for cooking with all who attend the retreats. I cannot recommend Jacky enough. By the time you leave, you'll feel like family."
"Jacky put together the most incredible retreat that was so relaxing and really helped me to refocus. Jacky's healthy cooking was absolutely delicious and it was so fun getting the chance to learn a few of her recipes. The only problem is that you will never want to leave this sanctuary! Thank you ladies for such a magical time on the lake!"
