The 200-hour yoga teacher training in Chiang Mai, Thailand is an intensive 22-day program. The yoga teacher training course not only strengthens the essential foundations of yoga to ensure students would be able to build upon these foundations to further their practices.
The yoga teacher training course is also a prerequisite to the 300-hour yoga teacher training course, an advanced level of yoga teacher training.
The main lead teachers are brought up in spiritual families with yoga as an important part of their youth and life principles. They aim to bring balance between all subjects of yoga which are mainly categorized as yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy and physiology, pranayama, meditation, relaxation (yoga Nidra), and practical yoga sessions (i.e. Hatha yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga).
In this modern-day, yoga has been made into a sort of sport and exercise by many fitness companies and even adopted by many freelance yoga teachers. Yoga has lost the spirituality that is the essence of it all. Yoga Samaadhi wants to be part of the movement that brings the spirituality aspect back into what people call “yoga”. They aim to give you the experience that makes you understand how meditation is linked to the practical yoga session more than you realized, and that all yoga concepts and practices are just a part of going deeper into yourself and brings you closer to peace and self-realization.
The training is structured to follow the standards under the "Five Educational Categories of Studies and Practices" of yoga, plus self-study hours (referred to as non-contact hours). Yoga Samaadhi makes sure to integrate all essential subjects such as pranayama, shatkriya, yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, yoga asanas, meditation, and relaxation, to ensure the students undergo a wholesome and well-rounded environment of yoga studies and practice during the training at Yoga Samaadhi.
