Yoga Teacher Training Thailand

Welcome to The Path of Yoga Family! We are a team of experienced yogis, teacher-trainers and good friends. Between us we have taught dozens of training all over the world, and we come from a variety of backgrounds, yogic styles, and lineages. We have come together to create this exceptional course and transformational month.

We share a love for a strong yet nourishing dynamic practice married with traditional Hatha. The practically applied philosophy and sacred traditions of the East, married with the discoveries of modern sports science are the essence and heart of this immersion course.

Join us for this transformational month where we will live and breathe yoga together, developing ourselves physically and mentally and learning how to teach these transformative techniques to others. At the end of the month, you will be a certified Yoga Alliance 200-hour teacher, but more importantly, you will have the necessary confidence, knowledge, and teaching skills to blossom into a world-class yoga teacher.

We look forward to practicing with you!

The Yoga Alliance certified training provides a month of Hatha, Vinyasa, Breathwork, Meditation, philosophy, self-development, healing, and all the skills necessary to become a successful yoga teacher. A yoga teacher training course can be, and often is the beginning of a new chapter in your lives. It is not the final objective or goal, but a beautiful step on the Path of Yoga.

Each morning, you will start the day with three hours of practice made up of asana, pranayama, and meditation, followed by a healthy breakfast. You will then move into lectures on a variety of topics ranging from philosophy, to anatomy, to sequencing, and structure.

In the afternoons you will go deeper into the methodology of the techniques and practice how to teach and better understand them. This is a great opportunity to spend a month with three experienced teacher trainers, including both the founding teachers of Path of Yoga.

The syllabus

History and branches of yoga

An exploration of the classical traditions and their core philosophies, including Hatha, Tantra, and Vinyasa yoga. Learn about where the roots of yoga first took hold and how it has branched into where it is now.

Anatomy and physiology

The anatomy of movement and study of the key body systems. You will explore how the body works, and apply this important knowledge in safe and effective practice and teaching.

Key poses of yoga

Daily study and practice of postures and their alignment, adjustments, energetic and health benefits, modifications, and effective teaching cues.

Understanding the subtle body - Prana and the Chakras

Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, what lay beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing prana, this prime life force and how it moves through the Chakras or energetic centers. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.

The science of breath

The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice. The breath has a profound influence on the nervous system and a deep effect on life quality, both on and off the yoga mat. Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to “advanced” pranayama.

Sequencing and structuring

You will learn how to use the toolkit offered in the yoga system to create meaningful sequences. A good class is not just anatomically sound but also meaningful on more subtle levels.

Meditation and the mind

Understanding your own mind and its makeup is an important part of being a guide in any practice. The power of meditation is significant. You will study and practice a variety of techniques that are aimed at the development of your own personal meditation practice and being able to hold space when teaching.

Introduction to Ayurveda

A fascinating and practical science of life from ancient India that offers tools to better understand yourself and others therapeutically through the context of the doshas, gunas, and prana.

Effective teaching skills

The necessary skills to confidently lead a yoga class is obviously an important part of taking a teacher training course. There will be plenty of practice teaching: one on one, in small groups, and in front of the whole class coupled with the art and science of teaching and presenting.

Business and marketing in yoga

Yoga has become a bustling market for teachers and students alike, and there are a number of ways to you can stand out from the crowd and jump start your teaching career. Path of Yoga will show you how.

The 200-hour certificate will be awarded upon completion of all course requirements. This certificate is all you need to immediately apply for your Yoga Alliance RYT200 Certification, a certification recognized worldwide. A detailed 150+ page Training Manual is also included.
