The Weight Loss & Detox Programs aren’t just about food and exercise, but they’re about detoxifying your life. Exercising, eating a clean diet, living in nature, and partaking in mindful exercises, such as yoga and meditation are considered to greatly improve mental health as well as the physical self. At the end of the day, the two go hand in hand.
Now imagine being at a retreat that combines all of these and puts them together such a way that your new lifestyle change becomes second nature.
You’ll start with the “Raw Fest” (optional may not be suitable for all guests.) This allows the colon to rest by removing a complex diet and providing natural energy and vitamins from raw foods. After five days your body will be ready to start enjoying some of the finest fresh Thai food packed with heaps of nutrition.
To help you reset, Battle Conquer has included all of the sightseeing tours in this package (go to Included Excursions for more information.) There are hikes that take you to breathtaking views, Thai massage treatments to help you unwind and train you against a backdrop of lush farmland.
The Hatha Yoga classes counterbalance the training sessions with long holds and deep stretches, opening up the hamstrings, releasing the lower back and mobilising the chest and shoulders. Pranayama exercises will help reduce stress and calm the mind. Plus the meditation sessions are there for you to enjoy every day, so please ask!

The Meditation experience is very special, in the week you will have the opportunity to partake in a guided meditation from their experienced yoga and meditation instructor, learning key meditation skills in some beautiful locations such as the Dragon Temple. These new found skills are then be put to good use when you visit their local monk deep in the hills in Petchabun’s incredible countryside surrounding Coral Mountain.
Battle Conquer offers guests the very unique and special experience of meditating with their local Monk at the monastery. It's a beautifully private and silent place deep in the hills by Coral Mountain. It's an extremely spiritual place that isn't open to the public and they are blessed to be able to visit and take their guests there. What is more, they can now offer our guests the opportunity to spend the weekend with the monk at the monastery. When asked about this opportunity, he said: "this is not for fun, this is very serious, you live the same as I do, you meditate and eat as I do." This was only available for Thai people up until a few months ago.
Take the Battle Conquer challenge of climbing three hundred steep steps to a hillside temple set in a cave as many times as you can in one hour or simply relax at the top taking in the magnificent views.
The first stop is the market to buy bananas, make sure you have a lot as there is going to be plenty of hungry monkeys. Next stop is the pretty Fish Temple set out on a jetty with stone steps leading down to the water. Give a donation for a bag of fish food and be amazed at the sheer size of the fish ready to greet you.
A very elegant and picturesque temple with two giant dragons set across the water and wonderful gold decorated statues of Buddha.
Meeting the English speaking Monk is a very spiritual experience. You will be able to ask him many questions as well as sit and meditate with him. Afterwards, you will take a hike with him along the rocking maze or stone steps. The drive to the monastery takes you through the beautiful Phetchabun Hills, the scenery around the monastery is extremely pretty and the views at the top of the hike are breathtaking.
Be sure to have your shoulders and knees covered to be allowed to enter the temple, shoes must be taken off before you go in. Also, as part of Thai tradition, it is good manners to take the Monk a small gift, for example, food, water or money is perfect.
