The teacher training course will take place in Koh Phangan, Thailand. Koh Phangan is a little smaller and far less developed than her sister island, Koh Samui, and much larger than Koh Tao. The elder Buddhist monks' belief is that Koh Phangan Island carries the energy of transformation and since it is located under many crystal rocks, it is no wonder that there are so much yoga and Tantra on the magical island of transformation.
Anahata Yoga Shala is located on the west side of the island, where the sunsets are beautiful all the time. It is located about 30 meters from the Bovy Beach in the neighborhood of Sri Thanu on the magical island Koh Phangan, Gulf of Thailand, and close by you can walk to the famous Zen Beach, where you can join in on the daily Kirtan and musical sunset sessions on the beach overlooking the blissful sunsets.
Sri Thanu is also known as the conscious community where most of the yoga, Tantra, and vegan conscious restaurants and other interesting places and happenings of the island are located. Surrounded by a lot of jungle and coconut trees, the shala is kept cool, along with mosquito nets allowing the student to Shivasana in peace and calm.
