Dress code at Kow Tham Center

Retreatants are requested to wear modest, loose-fitting clothing at all times.
We recommend light, loose clothing, that’s easy to wash and is comfortable for meditation and yoga.
Clothing should cover the shoulders and the midriff, and the chest should not be exposed.
Pants and dresses should be loose-fitting and cover the knees while standing and sitting.
No yoga pants, no tight pants or shirts, please.
Clothing must not be transparent.
Clothing without logos and loud designs is appreciated.
A light jacket or sweater may be wanted in evenings.
Also a light shawl can be handy in the non-rainy season, when it can get quite hot and humid.
It is recommended to bring shoe wear that is easily removable, for example flip-flops or sandals.
The meditation hall, temple, dining hall, etc, are no-shoe zones — this means you will take off your shoes, and put them back on, every time you enter or leave.
The same regulations are to be obeyed during our daily Mindful Yoga classes, and while anywhere in Kow Tham.
We can be understanding how the calmness and peacefulness of our clothing reflects our care for the experience of our companions.
Also keep in mind that we are on the grounds of a Thai monastery, and a part of traditional Thai culture.
So it is all part of our mindfulness!
