My experience with All Yoga was absolutely memorable and a journey that brought people together. It was full of fantastic mentors, teachings and l got to know myself better. I stayed at Beam accommodation which was so much fun as lots of us stayed together in the very spacious dorm that was only used by All Yoga training students. We quickly became a family - saying goodnight and getting familiar with each other's morning and evening rituals and habits. In the end l knew exactly which alarm belonged to whom! After the walk up the small hill (nicknamed 'hill-asana') we would reach our beautiful Shala up in the green with an overview of the bay – the best view for a sunrise. This was our home base - were we laughed, chanted, sweated and most of all grew as yogis and people. Coming from background of office desks and banking, it has been the best learning and practice environment l have ever had.
I absolutely fell in love with the surroundings of the All Yoga Shala in Thailand. You are right in the middle of the jungle, so closely connected to nature and disconnected from the outside world. It gives you the chance to have real introspection. During our free time we enjoyed spending time at the beautiful beaches with a fresh coconut in hand. A truly special place; it gives the whole experience the perfect add on.
Choosing the right yoga teacher training was a daunting decision, with so many companies and stunning locations out there it was difficult to know where to start. I knew that I wanted to complete my 200hrs in one shorter course, rather than across 1 year, as I knew I'd get the most out of full immersion into the experience.
Thailand was my top choice of places to do my 200hr yoga teacher training as it ticked all the boxes for what I was looking for. The most important thing for me was being far away from the distraction and stresses of everyday life. As well as being a safe and easy place to travel on your own.
Millions of people from around the world travel to Thailand annually. Well-catered to tourists, Thailand is a very safe and easy place to travel to. English is widely spoken and most restaurants/facilities have English signs.
As with most tourist destinations, be wary of thieves and protect yourself against petty crime by exercising caution when withdrawing cash from an ATM and making sure not to carry large sums of money on your person. It's also recommended that you keep your money and valuables close to you to avoid being targeted by thieves on motorcycles.
Koh Phangan, like all places in Thailand, is very safe and easy to get to. There are a number of travel options to the island, which you can view.
There are many solo travelers visiting Thailand per year. Chances are you will meet like-minded people along the way and strike up interesting conversations. Nevertheless, the best advice is to practice common sense. Don't venture alone into unsafe areas at night, keep your belongings safe, and correspond with someone you know back home so they know your whereabouts.
It is recommended to have photocopies (print and digital versions) of your passport and travel visas. In the event of loss or theft this will make it easier for your country's embassy to fast track a replacement.
You are in the perfect place! Thailand is very vegetarian-friendly due to its Buddhist traditions. You can find many vegetarian and vegan dishes in almost all local restaurants. Our favorites are green curry with tofu and vegetarian Pad Thai.
Food and accommodation are very affordable in Thailand, which make it a popular choice for yoga teacher trainees looking to spend more time in the country. Local dishes such as Pad Thai and curries start as low as USD2 - 3, and simple lodgings can start from USD 6 per night. For more details, see accommodation options.
Malaria is not commonly found in major cities/tourist areas in Thailand. While there are some cases of dengue fever, it can be avoided by protecting yourself with mosquito repellent and wearing long-sleeved tops and trousers in the evenings.
For vaccinations, please check with your local travel clinic before departure and use your own discretion.
Travel insurance from a trusted company that covers theft, loss and medical is highly advised. Make sure to check that your package also covers sport related injuries. If you are travelling on, many insurance providers offer longer backpacker packages at cheaper rates.
Koh Phangan is well connected with reliable Wi-Fi in most hotels, hostels and cafes. Short stay sim cards are also cheap, and can be bought on arrival at most airports.
The best way to protect against food poisoning is by drinking bottled or filtered water and steering clear of street food. Also avoid eating uncooked foods, like salad, as they are sometimes rinsed with tap water. Hand sanitizer will also be your best friend.
Visitors from many nations are entitled to a 30-day visa on arrival and there are a range of options for longer stays and multiple entries. Please check the Thai Immigration website for more detailed information.
It is advised to pack light, breathable clothing suitable for hot weather. You will be practicing yoga six days a week, so make sure to bring enough comfortable options. But no need to over pack, the island has many quick service laundry-mats where you can get your clothes washed.
As with any country with a tropical climate, Thailand has mosquitoes. Protect yourself with insect repellent, long-sleeved trousers and tops in the evenings and after-bite relief.
The island has convenience stores and pharmacies that sell basic toiletries, sunscreen, insect repellent and over the counter medicines. But it is recommended to come prepared, especially if you have particular requirements.
Yes, friends, family and partners are welcome. There is plenty of accommodation on the island suitable for couples and larger groups. On course days, friends and/or family can enjoy the activities in the area or take short day trips to different neighboring islands.
If time and budget allow, we recommend spending some time before or after your training to explore the area. Thailand is well developed for travellers making it an easy destination to explore, with many cheap and easy trains, buses and low-cost flights. Additionally, many nationalities are able to enter visa-free for 30 days. Those who have time to explore further can continue the South East Asia trail to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
There is so much to see in Thailand outside of the popular beach resorts. The mountainous north has national parks and conservation areas with protected wildlife such as the Asian elephant, cultural cities are home to some of the world’s oldest temples and long coastlines are dotted with picturesque limestone islands. Thailand’s top destinations for nature, culture and adventure are:
Getting to Koh Phangan
As there is no airport on Koh Phangan, you can reach the island by boat from either Koh Samui or Surat Thani.
The route from Koh Samui is the quickest and most direct way. Flights to Koh Samui are regular, with regular routes from Bangkok through Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways. From Koh Samui, travel to either of two ferry piers that have ferries to Koh Phangan. It’s recommended to book tickets in advance or get down to the pier early before your sitting. The two ferry options available are:1. Haad Rin Queen Ferry
From Koh Samui airport, take a taxi to the Big Buddha Pier. The Haad Rin Queen Ferry from here takes you to Haad Rin Pier. View ferry times here.2. Tong Nai Pan Ferry
Take a taxi to Koh Samui’s Mae Nam Pier. From there look for the Tong Nai Pan Ferry which stops off at Haad Tien Bay on the way. View the ferry schedule here.
On arrival in Haad Rin, you can take either a taxi boat (10 minutes journey) or a tuk-tuk (truck taxi; 45 minutes journey) to Haad Tien Bay. Tuk Tuks will vary in price depending on the number of passengers but should generally cost 500 baht.From Surat Thani
A cheaper alternative is to take the train from Bangkok to Surat Thani. However, be prepared for a long journey – around 8 to 12 hours depending on which train you catch. Tickets can be bought at the station or online at 12go.asia/en
Take a shuttle bus from Surat Thani railway station to Don Sak ferry terminal – this route is included if you have purchased the train + ferry ticket.
From Don Sak ferry terminal you can take a ferry to Haad Rin, Koh Phangan (around 2 to 3 hour journey).
|WEATHER||Thailand’s climate varies throughout the year. High season is between November and early April where the country enjoys cooler and drier weather. The weather becomes more hot and humid February to May before the rainy season hits the end of May lasting until October. In the south, the climate differs between the eastern and western coasts: the west coast is most favourable during the winter months, while the east coast enjoys mostly good weather year-round.|
|CULTURE||Thailand, known as the ‘Land of a Thousand Smiles’, has a friendly population who are very welcoming and hospitable to visitors. The local culture has a mix of Indian, Chinese and uniquely Thai traditions, with a large influence from Buddhism, which can be seen in many traditions and beliefs of the country. Local food, dance, music and celebrations play an important role in Thai life.|
While Thailand is a very hospitable and open country, there are some important social conventions to be aware of. It is a criminal offence to disrespect the royal family, so travellers should be mindful to treat objects depicting the king (like Baht notes) with respect.
Many cultural sites, in particular temples and museums, won’t allow people inside if they are inappropriately dressed. Be sure to dress modestly covering shoulders and legs. Avoid touching anyone on the head and be careful where you point your feet (metaphorically considered the lowest part of the body).
|LANGUAGE||The local language is Thai, however, English is widely spoken and understood.|
|CURRENCY||Currency in Thailand is Thai Baht.|
Now what an experience. I have adored every second of the training with All Yoga. David and Charlie are absolutely second to none. They have provided us with so much support, knowledge, guidance and laughter. They are such an asset to All Yoga. Truly leaving with a full heart of gratitude and the strongest yoga practice of my life! The first week or so was so tough on the body but by week 3 everything clicked! And here we are forever changed. The best group of people, wonderful teachers, life lessons, yoga love, and a content heart and soul. Who could ask for anything more? Magic was made. Loved our range of classes, workshops were so fun, I can't believe how much we covered and how much knowledge we've gained. So much gratitude, thank you all.
I signed up to this training because after seeing ads online and a friend recommended it. I came to deepen my practice, but little did I know that I was going to live the most amazing experience of my life. I learned so much more than I had in years. The open mind and open heart of everyone was beyond anything I could imagine. So much benevolence, love, and kindness from our 3 amazing teachers who are full of knowledge, but also from the group. Now I want to spread yoga into the world, and I thank All Yoga from the bottom of my heart for creating this training. I leave here with a better practice, plenty of tools to continue working on, a confident teachers mind, and new friends for life.
I enjoyed the training a lot. The shala by the sea is beautiful. The course starts from the morning with breath practice and meditation then Ashtanga Vinyasa for 2 hours. I felt my body, mind and soul become strong, happy and healthy. We learned knowledge about the body from Anatomy and philosophy was interesting too. Each day we learned to teach each other step by step and then finally we made it and have the ability to teach the whole MPS sequence. The training is not easy, but I feel it was a wonderful life experience. So much love to my teachers and classmates, we are family now!
This experience was more than I could have imagined. It pushed not just my practice but for me to grow as an individual. Vari was absolutely amazing. HeHe had so much wisdom and compassion to offer. He always inspired us to go inward to find our courage. I will leave this training as a transformed person. I have not only a deeper understanding of this practice but also myself. The pranayamas and meditations taught me to find stillness within myself. To come back to my center when the outside world became chaotic. The physical practice was challenging but taught me that with perseverance I have so much strength. We are always stronger than we think we are. Forever grateful for this experience

Ann originally from Canada, born to Korean parents, has been living abroad for over 8 years. She first encountered Ashtanga yoga and the Mysore method in Dubai and felt an instant connection with this powerful and nourishing practice. It has guided her to develop a daily devotional morning practice of mindfulness in her asana, pranayama and meditation practices. With over 5 years of a daily Ashtanga practice, she now has more of an understanding of her physical, energetic and spiritual body. Diving deeper in the path of yoga, she has also completed a 10 day Vipassana meditation, in honorable silence.
Ashtanga Vinyasa, for Ann, is first and foremost a moving meditation and a breathing practice. Many consider it quite a powerful Yang practice, but Ann brings a sense of Yin-ness to her teachings and her daily practices, as she maintains that each and every day of practice is a gift of self love.
