    Loyfa Natural Resort

    It is found at Sri Thanu on the western coast of Koh Phangan/Thailand. Loyfa boasts a private beach with a range of both luxury and budget accommodation that stretches from the shoreline to the crest of the hilltop. The Sri Thanu area is a volcanic peninsula that juts out into the coral reef allowing guests fantastic swimming and superb views over the bay. The Loyfa Natural Resort swimming pool offers a panoramic view of the bay with the restaurant & bar set just behind. The sunsets at night are a spectacle and many guests gather at this time to watch and enjoy a few drinks in this relaxing haven.

    Moon Beach Bungalow

    Moon Beach is a brand new resort located on the quiet peninsula of Laem Sri Thanu on the sunset coast of Koh Phangan. The resort is positioned on a hillside that runs into a white sand beach and calm azure sea, ensuring that every room has stunning views over the islands that make up the Samui Archipelago. There are only ten bungalows, so the atmosphere is personal and friendly, and all are reasonably priced to suit every traveller's budget. It is a family run business. They have a restaurant in the local village and have been taking care of visitors to the island for decades, thus you can rest assured that the food is as great as the hospitality.

    This 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Immersion follow the guidelines set out by the Yoga Alliance, ensuring the highest educational standards of quality, integrity and professionalism. Participants will develop a personal yoga practice appropriate for each individual while learning to foster a connection with their own inner wisdom and voice. Finding this deeper connection to Self will allow the teacher to communicate the practice to others in a dynamic and sensitive way.

    The Spiritual Yoga School concentrates on exceptional training. We do not operate as a yoga studio running daily classes, but focus on training great teachers. The philosophy of our training is to make the practice of yoga accessible, fun and safe for everyone, while both honouring the traditions of yoga and playing a part in its evolution.

    In the methodology, a yoga practice is not imposed on the individual instead the practice is adapted to the individual and is considerate of many factors including age, body type, fitness level and energy on any given day. Teachers in training develop their innate, sometimes dormant, skills of clear communication and leadership along with a personal practice suited to their individual needs and goals.

    With a faculty of teachers who come into the training to share their expert knowledge and distilled teachings with the Spiritual Yoga School trainees. Some topics include - History of Yoga, overview of ancient/relevant yogic texts, Restorative Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Subtle Body and Chakra presentations, Conscious Breathing and Emotional Release to name a few. In this way, the students’ faculties of discrimination and inner wisdom are stimulated. A clear understanding of the differences in each approach allows teachers in training to have a solid understanding of Hatha Yoga and gives them creative license over their own teaching style.

    The Koh Samui aquarium has a beautiful collection of tropical marine lige. Think of sharks, tropical fish, turtles and more. The animals are home to Koh Samui and the Gulf of Thailand. You can enjoy a wonderful moment while seeing these fish swim around the aquarium. This tour is a great way to calm down and relax, take some pictures and enjoy the underwater sea paradise of Thailand without wearing a diving suit!

    Samui Tiger Zoo

    Come say hello to the young leopards and Royal Bengal Tigers! Have a look at their strength and amazing power that puts fear and awe into all of us. They are the predators that are feared the most in the animal kingdom. You can stare at them from close by or from a distance, as they play with each other in their natural environment. If you feel a bit more adventurous, you can have have a photo taken while you’re sitting right next to them!

      Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)

      Brittany is a 200 and 300-hour registered yoga teacher. She first started practicing yoga in 2008 after a friend brought her to her very first class in Vancouver, Canada. Having always been active and interested in fitness and sports, what attracted Brittany to yoga in the beginning was the beauty of the physical practice of asana, moving from one form to the other in an expression of physical strength and control.

    • Bai Yuting Susu

      Shanghai, China Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Ashtanga Yoga)

      Susu graduated from the Shanghai University of traditional Chinese Medicine with special emphasis on rehabilitation therapy. She studied various therapies including TuiNa, Moxibustion, Cupping and Acupucture. After her studies she started to work in several hospitals in Shanghai where she helped rehabilitate many patients. Since leaving the hospital she has worked with hundreds of patients reducing their pain and helping them to recover.

    The island of Koh Phangan offers brilliant white sands, tranquil waters, and the opportunity to relax in the shade of coconut trees. It is also famous for the full moon party, which is held every month on the night of the full moon. Of course as a student of Spiritual Yoga School, your main focus is on meditation and tranquility, but that doesnt mean you cant get out and party (without alcohol) on the beach for one night - another way of bringing body and soul together.

Also thank you to Spiritual yoga school for such a wonderful job and having those teachers. Thank you to my family and friends without your support I wouldn't be able to come this far.

      " Spiritual Yoga School was an amazing experience, it was honestly much more than I imagined it to be. The teachers were brilliant and their years of experience really showed in the classroom. The location, accommodation and meal plans were great. The only issue I had was the payment method which was kind of haphazard but I think they're working that out. "

I started to understand that Yoga positively effects every part of my body and soul. I have learned different types of meditation, breathing and new Asanas. I hope to become successful Yoga Teacher.

      "We joined Yoga Teacher Training because we wanted to get away from every day stress and learn Anatomy. We both believe that it is very important to understand our body and mind. We really loved morning Pranayama because we both had repiratory problems. We highly recommend you to join Yoga TT because you will understand again what is really important in life and how badly can stress effect your health."

      "I like the course overall. I felt that I gained so much knowledge and experience in such a short time. Even if YTT200 is just the beginning I felt confident to start teaching after graduation. Accommodation was fantastic. My group stayed at Moon Beach resort which is run by the loveliest Thai family. Amazing home cooked thai food each night and great accommodation as well. My teacher was amazing. She was filled with knowledge and so excited to share this with her students. She created a safe and fun environment where she encouraged and supported her students through their journey"

    • Review by Carolyn from USA

      " While I valued the mornings with Pranayama and Asana practice, I learned so much about the yoga sutras and how they span every aspect of humanity. I loved that this ignited the start of more learning for me. The location at Vikasa in Koh Samui was inspirational and I felt that I was being holistically taken care of throughout the course.The other yogis that took the training were amazing. It was an open and honest group of learners who supported each other and were committed to learning and growing as yogis. Liza is extremely knowledgable and has a beautiful focus to her practice. Reshma Datar was the wonderful assistant teacher who knows so much of the history and encouraged all of us to shine. Both teachers were dedicated to the growth of the students and helped us to achieve. "
