We explore and investigate all of this to develop a solid foundation for your practice, learn specialized skills, and advance your practice from the inside out. A highly engaging and supportive learning experience, join a wonderful community of like-minded fellow students and yoga teachers.

Holistic healing with sound (Nada Yoga) is a powerful component of the training, being a transformative tool to restore balance and harmonize the cells. Sound, frequency, and vibration are one of the most powerful tools to release stress, remove emotional blocks and activate self-healing mechanisms in the body. The power of sound opens up the vibrational field of resonance to induce a deep meditative state and bring deep transformation on all levels of being. Learn how to incorporate sound, voice, mantra and Sanskrit into your classes, and how to play singing bowls and tuning forks, as well as for basic one-on-one treatments. Gong ceremonies and sound baths will also be held weekly to deepen your own personal experience.
Meditation and mindfulness practices are also an important aspect, to cultivate awareness and essentially embody the practice. The techniques are sourced from traditional yogic methods such as mantra and calm abiding, loving kindness and mindful awareness practices from the Buddhist tradition. A daily seated meditation practice is an integral part of our training including periods of silence (mauna) in the mornings and some evenings to support a deeper insight into one’s essential nature.
The main practice is Hatha yoga as a functional alignment-based slow flow, with emphasis on the breath, energetics of the pose and internal focus of the mind. Influenced by the more dynamic flow practices as well as Vinyasa Krama as taught by Sri T. Krishnamacharya, honoring the ancient origins of yoga. We teach you how to use Yoga skilfully for a specific outcome, as a tool for deep change. Full poses, adaptations and variations are taught, ratios of breath, bandha, mudra, mantra, sound, bhavana, meditation, ritual, guided self-inquiry, relaxation, lifestyle practices, and their appropriate application as an inner process. We empower you to find what your individual expression of Yoga is.
Chinese Taoist arts are also utilized to stimulate the meridians (energy channels), encourage healthy organ function, and harness internal energy, working with the elements of the Chinese Taoist system. Gentle Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga practices increase receptivity, creating a deeply profound practice that invites deep listening and presence.
An insightful immersion that connects to the cycles of nature, the earth, the sky, and with the 5 elements. Discover the art of ceremony and ritual creating sacred space and time, opening up to vision, prayer, intention (sankalpa), and the group energy of sharing and interconnectedness during New and Full Moon Ceremonies.
The training opens setting sacred intention with the New Moon, then harnesses the energies of the Full Moon after Module 1 as you step into the role of a teacher, an opportunity to let go of what no longer serves you under the stars in a Full Moon Beach Circle Ceremony and Fire Blessing. This programme culminates once again on the New Moon to set an intention for your new life path.
There will be some weekly evening events including group sound bath, gong ceremony, new and full moon ceremonies, voice work, and conscious cinema to deepen your experience. This one-month intensive training balances nicely by treating yourself to a local Thai massage. These can be much more therapeutic and in-depth than other forms of massage and relieve muscle tension greatly.

Koh Yao Noi (“long, little island” in Thai), is located in the very picturesque Phang Nga Bay between Krabi and Phuket and is the most up-and-coming destination in southern Thailand. One of the lesser developed islands of Western Thailand known for its natural beauty and serenity. Found just a 30-minute speedboat trip away from Phuket, Yao Noi's tight-knit local Muslim community has led the island along a more low-impact, peaceful development path. This provides the perfect sanctuary for in-depth practice and solitude.
The 140-square-kilometre island is about half the size of neighboring Koh Yao Yai. The east side has sandy beaches with superb views of the towering limestone rocks of the bay, suitable for swimming and snorkeling. The west is a photogenic landscape blend of rice flats, mangrove forests, and pine trees. Rubber tree plantations and coconut groves can also be seen all over the island. Accommodation wise the island is a mix of high-end plush resorts such as Six Senses, and Paradise Island Resort, as well as traditional low-medium budget wooden bungalows.
This training unfolds in the beautiful wooden ‘Lotus Shala’ (Jul/Aug training), or modern concrete 'Bhakti Hall' situated on the east side, by the beach and the mangroves where you can welcome the sunrise. It provides a safe nurturing space where you can explore and integrate the teachings effectively. With fewer distractions around, it allows for deep relaxation and integral growth, allowing your full immersion into the practice in the most tranquil environment.
The shala is located in a resort with a restaurant, Yogi Cafe, chill out area and swimming pool. A few local Thai restaurants, small shop, and massage parlor are within 5 minutes walking distance. It is about 10 minutes' walk to the long tail pier (to Krabi), and more local restaurants, and also an ambient Italian restaurant in the other direction, especially good for the evenings. Also, a pretty little health café run by a German lady is a favorite with students just 20 minutes' walk away. To get further afield and into the small main town, about 15 minutes by scooter, it is recommended to hire a scooter or bicycle.
Vegetarian buffet breakfast can be requested on an individual basis at the YTT venue (not included in the price). Lunch and dinner are taken at students own discretion on site or externally. There is a regular restaurant as well as a Yoga Cafe at the venue.
Food is not expensive in Thailand, local eateries charge around 60-150 THB per meal, including vegetarian. If you wish to eat organic, vegan, vegetarian Western health cafe food then 80-250 THB per meal.
