Yoga Teacher Training Koh Phangan

In our yoga teacher training program, we will guide you in establishing a strong, practical and attainable level of asanas, pranayama and meditation, without overlooking the importance of energy flow within the practice.

We will explore multiple outlets of communication, how to plan and design classes to meet the needs of various levels of ability and discuss appropriate methods to assist class participants with alignment, corrections and modifications.

Our curriculum will take you through the basic mechanisms of the human physical and pranic body, while examining a yogic lifestyle, healthy nutrition and the ethics of yoga teaching and instruction.  All of this will be rounded up with a lot of practice, observation, feedback, support and love.

The foundation of our Yogagati flow derives from and combines traditional forms of Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga. Yogagati flow is safe but challenging – physically, emotionally and spiritually – creating room for your own personal growth. It is also super relaxing, fun and unconventional because we don’t follow – we innovate.

Furthermore, our course is taught over three weeks, ideal for those with limited time who want to obtain full certification or just deepen their personal practice. You don’t have to be flexible or be able to stand on your head, for us  more important is your willingness to learn. Our course is structured in a way that supports participants of all levels, including beginners.
