This Yoga Alliance course combines Buddhist meditation with alignment-based Hatha yoga over 5 weeks in a beautiful resort in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The yoga will emphasize strength and intelligence in order to develop awareness, reach your potential, and become empowered to pursue a life and a practice with purpose and meaning.
You will be staying at DoiFarang Resort during this yoga teacher training. You can stay in the chalets or the bungalows. The accommodation will make you feel right at home. Your room is not just your place to sleep, but your place to relax in between classes, review your notes, work on homework assignments, and unwind after a long day of classes. It's crucial that you feel comfortable in your room.
Please note that the accommodation options are extremely flexible and Buddho Yoga is happy to make arrangements for friends or families to stay together. Please ask Buddho Yoga if you have a special request for your room or are not sure which type of accommodation is best for you. They are happy to advise you based on your needs.
Buddha Yoga understands that you need to sleep well because the course is both physically and mentally demanding. That's why extra consideration has been given to the arrangement of the accommodation and Buddho Yoga thinks you'll appreciate the little touches.
The chalets are actually converted rice houses that are made with teak wood and are very cozy and full of character. There are three chalets, two of them have one double bed and one single bed and the third one has one double bed. If you are interested in having a private chalet, please send an inquiry to Buddho Yoga about this option.
Every attempt will be made to make the rooms gender-specific unless a group is traveling together. If you require staying with your same gender, do let Buddho Yoga know, and you can also know if you don't mind staying in a mixed situation. If you want an attached bathroom, you can stay in one of the bungalows.
There are five bungalows on site and four will be made available for participants. Each bungalow comes equipped with two beds, an air-conditioner, an attached bathroom, and a front patio. The bungalows are made out of brick, have solid flooring, and are sealed to keep the bugs out. Small living areas and a fan are also available.
Buddho Yoga highly recommends securing a spot in one of the brick bungalows as the standard of comfort is higher and you will have more space to settle in. For only an extra 200 USD, this is quite the deal! If you'd like even more privacy and space, you can stay in a bungalow all by yourself depending on availability. Preference will be given to people who are looking to share.
Upon completion of this yoga teacher training, students will receive certificate affiliated with Yoga Alliance. Registration with Yoga Alliance provides a globally recognized credential.
Set in the idyllic valley of Phrao at Doi Farang Resort, Buddho Yoga offers a unique chance to both learn and practice yoga and Thai Buddhism together. Because of the emphasis on two daily meditation sessions, you will have the opportunity to actually live the lifestyle of dedicated practices and immersion into the ancient wisdom teachings.
By extending the course to five weeks, the daily schedule can be made a bit less study-intensive and more focused on living in the space of practice and supportive community. Not only that, this course also features a silent three-day meditation retreat on the third week, which will still include a morning yoga class.
The daily schedule will consist of two 3-hour sessions that are devoted to fulfilling the requirements for Yoga Alliance. Please note that the daily schedule may be adjusted to accommodate additional course contents such as practice teaching, group activities, and testing.
The premise of this course is that being a good teacher starts with being a good student. Of course, not all who attend this course are interested in becoming yoga teachers, but Buddho Yoga will also connect this to being a good person in general and inclining ourselves towards leadership by providing examples. Whether you're interested in teaching yoga or just improving your life, this premise promises to bring about a major transformation.
You will spend much of the course exploring this question from different perspectives. Of course, what it means to be a good student depends on the individual, but there exists a certain way to approach the yoga practice, from a place of openness and humility, that sparks the flame of learning and it is from this place that one can experience a true personal transformation. There may be other ways to approach studentship, but not all of them lead to transformation.
When a skillful attitude for learning and transformation is cultivated, you can then develop your vision for life and discover the special place that yoga holds in your personal vision. This process entails considering what you already believe and also leaves enough space for the inspiration that comes from the transformation of your practice.
This is a way of recognizing the importance of your practice and also helps you to refine your offering. Even if you don't teach, the invitation will be to see your life as an offering in itself. In this way, the way you live and the choices you make reflect your vision and you can find stability by aligning with your purpose. From this place of stability, you can lend a helping hand to others, and others can turn to you in times of need.
When you have a clear vision, it becomes obvious what fits and what doesn't, and you can start to streamline your life and direct your efforts towards whatever means the most to you, be it a career, family, or spiritual awakening. If you do plan to go on to teach after the course, this process will prove to be most effective. When you know what it all means to you, you can find practical ways of sharing your vision with your students. If you're not clear yourself, your students surely won't see it either.
Instead of just offering yoga classes that are similar to what you might find in a yoga studio or drop-in class, the morning yoga sessions will be longer and more focused, similar to a workshop. These three-hour morning yoga sessions will include asanas, pranayama, chanting, and alignment.
Each session will include clear demonstrations, partner exercises, detailed explorations of alignment principles, and progressive sequences that will carry on throughout the entire course. Those who may be concerned about practicing yoga for three continuous hours do not need to worry as there will be many opportunities to take breaks while watching a demo, helping a partner, or even sitting down for a quick whiteboard session.
The afternoon sessions will generally be divided into two separate classes with a break in the middle. The topics will include philosophy, anatomy, and teaching methodology. Unlike other TTC programs, Buddho Yoga's program has its own methodology that encapsulates everything we do.
That means all different aspects of the practice will be explored and held within the container that's been created, which is called Unified Vision Theory (UVT). This theory invites you to get clear about what you have to offer and how you can pursue an avenue in life that both utilizes your purpose and fulfills your intention to make the world a better place.
The daily schedule begins and ends with an hour-long session of chanting and silent meditation. The chanting, which will be in the tradition of Thai Buddhism, both calms the mind and opens the heart. Then, the clear and progressive instructions will provide you with a real educative and immersive experience that will empower graduates to continue their practice on their own.
Since this course focuses on empowerment, Buddho Yoga realizes the importance of providing all participants enough time to get comfortable with sharing their vision through teaching. Whether or not you plan to teach yoga, this part of the course helps in many facets of life including public speaking and learning to inhabit the body while practicing mindful speech. Areas of focus will be on giving demonstrations, teaching a pose, teaching a sequence, giving clear instructions and finding power in the voice, as well as preparing and teaching an entire class.
Buddho Yoga sees yoga as a tool for transformation. When we work hard, we will end up facing inevitable resistance to the challenge and if we can soften our resistance to the way things are, we open up into a whole world of space, clarity, and poise. When we focus on detailed alignment, we systematically develop awareness. By working with progressive sequences, we carefully step into our potential and the result is that we become empowered to live a more purposeful and meaningful life.
Buddho Yoga believes that being a good yoga teacher starts with being a good student and this is largely about cultivating an attitude of humility, openness, and willingness to follow the instructions and practice according to the teachings. In this way, humility becomes the key to empowerment.
If you think you already know, you actually close yourself down to the teachings and don’t have a chance to realize what the teachings have to offer. If you can humble yourself to realize that there may be something to new to learn, you can practice wholeheartedly in accordance with the teachings and realize the transformative power they hold.
Inspired by Anusara yoga, this course will explore the practice of yoga in a very detailed way. Buddho Yoga will use the Universal Principles of Alignment (UPAs) as a basis for the exploration, which offers a chance to understand how certain actions in the body create a safer and more supported way to find space in the body in any pose.
Once you understand the principles, you can feel empowered to apply them to different poses. In this way, you don’t have to learn the alignment for every pose, but rather focus on learning these five principles and then realize their universality.
According to Universal Vision Theory, an action is a way in which we actually express what is most important to us. It’s not enough to conceptualize, study, or talk about something, but we must actually do it, and therein lies the hardest part. It’s all about being the change we wish to see, both on and off the mat.
In fact, the spiritual practices just help us to steer our lives in a more wholesome direction so that we feel empowered to bring more clarity and purpose into our daily lives, into our relationships, into the workplace and family, and wherever else we find ourselves. It’s all about engaging ourselves in this world, through clear actions in the body, informed by our deepest conviction that we have a unique gift to offer others through our lives.
This course will feature meditation as the primary tool for personal transformation and awakening. The two main meditation styles you will explore are Samatha and Vipassana. Samatha meditation is all about using concentration or single-pointedness of mind to achieve a state of calmness and stillness. While Vipassana meditation is about understanding the true nature of all physical and mental phenomena in order to find freedom from suffering and lasting happiness.
Rather than choosing one style, you will develop the ability to concentrate on a single object before opening your awareness up to include more objects. Through repeated observation of different objects, you will slowly develop wisdom that will help you to find the end of suffering. This is the path of purification and awakening.

The venue of this course is located in the peaceful valley of Phrao, which lies in the northern part of Chiang Mai province, Thailand. The valley, which is very flat, is not very populated and has very little tourism. It's surrounded by mountains and mostly filled with rice paddies and traditional Thai villages. If you want to experience the real Thailand, this is the place to do it!
Phrao is a great base to explore the surrounding areas, which are mountainous, full of waterfalls, forests, caves, temples, and hill-tribes people who are still living in their traditional ways. This part of northern Thailand is one of the most enchanting places on earth.
On this teacher training, you will be served with fully catered meals, 3 times a day, 7 days a week. It's important to Buddho Yoga that you feel like you are being taken care of, mainly because that feeling of being supported will help you to make it through the course.
The specific timing of the meals in relationship to the rest of the daily activities has been carefully considered and tested. Buddho Yoga wants to make sure you aren't forced to practice yoga right after eating and have plenty of time for rest and relaxation after lunch.
The food served during the course will be vegetarian, but not vegan. However, there will be many vegan options available, especially since most vegetarian Thai dishes are vegan since eggs, dairy, and cheese are not common in most dishes. Meat and seafood will not be served. Special dietary considerations such as gluten-free can most likely be accommodated. Please let Buddho Yoga know ahead of time.
The meals will be served with buffet style. For each meal, a variety of three different dishes will be served and you will be able to take as much as you want. Although the chefs specialize in Thai food, there will also be some western style dishes such as pasta for dinner or eggs and toast for breakfast. The Thai dishes will be varied and you will have a chance to taste some of the most famous Thai dishes that most likely you haven't tried yet.
An effort will be made to include protein sources such as tofu and other meat alternatives, but some dishes will simply be made with fresh vegetables. The kitchen team is going to do to everything they can to make sure your dining is just what you need to support your journey.
If you want to go to the retreat venue on your own, you can take a local bus from Chiang Mai. However, Buddho Yoga recommends meeting them in the city as the transportation is provided for you.
