28 Day 200-Hour Hatha Based Multi-Style Yoga Teacher Training in Koh Phangan, Surat Thani

Srithanu, Koh Phangan, Surat Thani, Thailand

Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Thailand

Sunny Yoga, a boutique Yoga school founded by native Thai Sunny (Sunsanee) Intapong, is one of the most successful Yoga schools on Koh Phangan and is the only Yoga school in South Thailand led by a Thai woman. Sunny’s unique personality and life experience make each of her TTCs a special experience as she puts a lot of thought and love into her training and sweetens challenging sessions with her playful yet sincere humor. Her approach is very grounded and less about ‘chasing enlightenment’ with a quick fix but rather guiding individuals to become the best version of themselves through sincere self-work, discipline, and practice as well as fun and play.

A Yoga Teacher Training is not only a course to learn a new professional skill, it is a consciously chosen life-transforming period of time with ups and downs as your body and mind go through the stages of self-reflection, shedding, and growth. This can be an intimidating and exhausting process, especially if you are new to Yoga and/or aiming to do some serious personal development and healing work for yourself. With an average class size of only 10-15 students (currently even smaller due to international travel restrictions), Sunny’s TTCs have a pleasantly intimate feel and high-quality care for each student. It is a beautiful safe space to learn, share, listen, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone and make deep live-long connections with your classmates.

Retreat location

Set in the heart of Srithanu, Koh Phangan on a jungle hilltop surrounded by nature, we train, study, eat and chill at the incredibly beautiful new Sunny Yoga Hilltop Yoga & Meditation Center. Up the hill away from the noise you'll find two open air mosquito protected Yoga Sala's, a lounge area and views overlooking the inner hills of the island. The sun rises over the inner hills of the island and lights up the main sala during morning meditation.
