Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Thailand.
If you are longing to take the first step into a deeper journey of inner discovery, this course is a leap into that journey. Our program is truly special, not only for its content and practice but also for the loving intention that we put into every part of it as we live in a community where you will be sharing this whole process with volunteers and team that become a family. The place is based in a permaculture project so you can reconnect with yourself through the understanding of nature and how we can empower ourselves through it .
For this training, you will sleep in cozy ecobungalows . Each hut is shared between 2 people. If you do not have a partner, you will be paired with another student. There are shared bathrooms (some of them compost based!) and shower facilities on site, where you will be able to get a shower with the sounds of the jungle . Included in the accommodation is a fan, a comfortable mattress, pillows, and fresh linens (changed weekly). Each unit has its electrical socket for the ease of charging devices and, of course, free Wi-Fi. Electricity and water are included and toilet paper will be provided.
Our curriculum and philosophy are focused on traditional Hatha yoga. As you will learn during the course, Hatha yoga is a way of approaching life, and the asana practice is only one of the eight limbs of the Hatha philosophy. You will learn how to integrate the empathetic and spiritual practice of Hatha into your life, learning how to exist in the spiritual world and the modern-day world we are all accustomed to. Vinyasa is a more modern form of yoga that comes from the Hatha Asana practice. Vinyasa focuses on using breath with movement, harmonizing each movement in the yoga flow with an inhale or an exhale. No two vinyasa classes are the same and we will teach you how to sequence beautiful Vinyasa flows that will embody your unique teaching style.
Besides teaching the Hatha philosophy: this course also puts a focus on teaching traditional Ayurveda; the Ayurvedic diet, learning about your Ayurvedic profile (the doshas), using Ayurveda for preventative health and wellness. As a yoga teacher, it’s important to understand the human anatomy and how yoga influences our bodies on an anatomical level, our course teaches anatomy from its more traditional biological standpoint as well as the conjunction between yogic philosophy and biological principles.
This training is a great mix of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga to teach unification, strong foundations, good alignment as well as moving through posture and breathing.
Not only that, this teacher training includes teaching breath work and meditation. You can add massages, acupuncture, Tibetan bells, and other healing experiences in your free time at an additional cost and La Casa Shambala encourages you to bring instruments to play during evening Kirtan.
