Yoga Alliance is an international governing board for yoga teachers and training programs in the United States and globally.

Graduates of this program are automatically eligible to register as an RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance. Becoming an RYT means having a higher profile and gaining international recognition as a yoga teacher, attributes that many hiring studios look for.

Upon successful completion, 100 percent attendance, and following the code of conduct, students will receive a certificate of completion from Black Mat Yogi for this teacher training program.


Students undergoing this program must be fully committed and understand that 100 percent full-attendance is required. They must also be willing to forgo most other personal or professional commitments for the duration of the program - only with 100 percent attendance and completion of the course will students receive a certificate and no make-up work will be given. Should there be any problems with this, students must speak with the faculty prior to the course and only under very special circumstances will it be considered.

Retreat location

The Yogarden Samui is located in a quiet back street of the quaint Fisherman's Village on the tropical island of Koh Samui, Thailand. This wonderful location allows you to experience the magic of the village and its small shops, cafes, and beaches while being tucked away in the secluded tropical gardens and the 100-year old traditional teak Thai house that hosts the yoga shala, café, and spa.

It is 10 minutes away from the airport and public transport options are a short walk away to any of the island's main attractions. A weekly walking street market in the village is a favorite for island locals and visitors alike. It's a perfect option for those looking for a variety of choices from their stay.
