V Yoga Shala is a private, boutique studio, nestled in the quietest part of Koh Phangan. There is walking access on the beach to restaurants, coffee shops, pools and various activities like kitesurfing, sup-boarding, jet skies, diving, boat trips and hiking.

    Why Students Love Our Thailand Location

    Lauren, EU All Yoga Graduate

    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 I have ever had.

    Tiaani, TW All Yoga Graduate

    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.

    Francesca, HK All Yoga Graduate

    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.

    Callie , USA MAR 2024 GRADUATE

    I loved this entire experience! I do feel as though I finally broke out of my shell, Teaching this morning on the 22nd day. I can say that I actually felt confident! ENJOYED IT !! I am a fairly shy person especially when it comes to things I don’t know about, it turned out Ashtanga vinyasa was one of those things! But I am amazed an so so so thankful to see how far I have come, progressed! For that, for all of it, I will be forever grateful !!! Challenges. Honestly, I loved the harder practices, full sequence days! So I can’t really say that was a challenge or I guess that as I believe they were! Honestly, for me the most challenging thing was probably the social aspect of the school, not in a bad way. Just a new experience for me. So many different people, and personalities! But I am so thankful for each, and every one of them! Thank you all yoga for making this beautiful experience possible! Xoxo. Callie.

    Irene, Canada MAR 2024 GRADUATE

    I joined this training with no expectations, searching for some new experiences to be honest I had only practiced Ashtanga twice before – mainly practicing vinyasa and yin. However, the last 3 weeks have completely changed my mindset regarding Ashtanga and yoga in its entirety. That was once just a workout for my physical and mental health, I have now a more holistic understanding of yoga. I was very impressed with the knowledge, skills and passion excluding from David, Kim and Sonia – along with our amazing guest teachers, Wendy and Dr Ganesh. 3 weeks went by in the blink of an eye. I am leaving this course, stronger and with a better understanding of myself. I will miss all the amazing bavels created here and practicing in front of the beach was definitely a plus. All the love, to all yoga

    Femke, Belgium FEB 2024 GRADUATE

    The training was a fantastic experience. I would recommend it if you want to teach yoga or simply want to deepen your practice. Vari is an amazing teacher, he has so much knowledge and experience. His adjustments are a spot on. I learned so much from him, not only about yoga or about the asana practice or the teaching, but also about being more yogic. Maria and Roberta are just lovely, you can ask them anything. Maria is so caring and funny, she will help you out on anything m. Roberta is a wonderful assistant and an amazing teacher, I really learned a lot from her. The shala is at a wonderful location, with an amazing view. You are surrounded by nature, plants, palm trees and the ocean is right in front of you, perfect for doing meditation, just to be with yourself or a dive into the ocean after another tough practice. Thank you so much for this wonderful and beautiful experience. I enjoyed every bit of it. I will never forget it!

    Janessa, UK FEB 2024 GRADUATE

    The course was everything and more. I came to expand my practice and become a teacher but I gained so much more than that. Yoga is equally mental as it is physical and I truly learned so much about myself and others. Every week, every day there was a new challenge, whether it was waking up completely sore, how was I going to practice for 3/4 hours, working in a new pose, being so nervous to teach or dealing with emotions I wasn’t sure of. This special place and people gave me the space to grow and transform. I am not leaving the some person I was before and will carry this with me forever. The shala was very warm, cozy and inviting. The echo of mantras and teachings in this space has been magical. Every corner there is beauty, it’s s easy to spend hours in here yet having no concept of time.

    My life has changed forever – learning all about yoga and the 8 limbs has been fantastic. Practicing yoga 2 times a day has changed my body not only on the outside but the inside. My mind is more clear and calm. I loved how the teachers always had a positive inspirational way of speaking and demonstrating postures. I always felt comfortable. I think the biggest challenge for me is going home. This yoga training has transformed me into a better version of myself. Thank you so much, there are no words to express the gratitude I have.

    It’s not just a course, it a human adventure. I’ve pushed my limits, I have challenged myself. I was beyond my physical and mental capabilities. I succeeded in achieving the goals I had set myself. The training team is formidable and highly competent, patient and always with a smile. Thanks to this team, I feel ready to start teaching and I have all confidence they have given me. The shala is a beautiful spot by the ocean, a magnificent paradise, where we felt a great deal of serenity, it’s the ideal place.

    Why Choose Your 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand?

    Get your yoga certification on one of the most beatiful islands in Indonesia

    Is it safe to travel to Thailand and Koh Phangan?

    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 here.

    I am a first-time solo traveler, what should I be aware of in Thailand?

    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.

    I am vegan/vegetarian, what can I eat in Thailand?

    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.

    Is food/accommodation expensive in Thailand?

    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 here.

    Should I be worried about tropical diseases in Thailand?

    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.

    What about travel insurance?

    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.

    How much money should I bring?

    How much money you should bring depends on your spending habits. In general, most people can live basically in Thailand for under USD 10-15/day . However, expect to spend more if you intend on doing some shopping, massages, and indulging in food and drinks.

    How is the Internet connection on the island?

    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.

    I have heard many things (good & bad) about the full moon party on Koh Phangan, should I be concern how it would interfere my yoga training?

    Indeed the full moon party has its mixed reviews. Geographically, the full moon party is at a separate bay from the training location, and can only be accessed by boat. People who go to the party rarely come to Haad Tien unless they are there for a yoga retreat or detox program. Unless you actively seek out the party, most of the time the full moon party goes unnoticed to the yoga trainees.

    How do I best avoid food poisoning?

    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.

    Do I need a visa to enter Thailand?

    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.

    What should I make sure to bring with me?

    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.

      Useful items to bring are:
    • Charcoal pills / Imodium
    • Rehydration salts
    • High protection sun-screen
    • Poncho (for wet season, October to April)
    • Adaptor (Thailand uses 220V AC electricity and two-prong round or flat sockets)
    • Reef shoes
    • Beach sarong / towel
    • Hand sanitizer

    Can my partner/family join me if he/she is not attending the course?

    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.

    Inspired by Nature

    Thailand: a country with a diverse ecosystem of island archipelagos, white-sand beaches and wild national parks. Our students can experience it on all on the island of Koh Phangan known for its ecotourism. In contrast to the south east of the island, famous for its beach parties and nightlife, the west coast of the island enjoys a quieter, unspoiled calm with beautiful areas to explore. In fact, nearly half of Koh Phangan is protected tropical rainforest reserve with a unique ecology of wildlife, flora and fauna. Island hopping to explore surrounding nature is popular among travellers; check out our tips for exploring the area before or after your training.

    Spiritual Energy

    Buddhism is Thailand’s national religion and the country is enriched with spirituality. Surrounded by the natural wonders of mountains, jungle and ocean, its no surprise that Koh Phangan is a haven for meditation, yoga and alternative healing. Legend has it that Koh Phangan is a ‘Crystal Island’, formed on top of a foundation of rose quartz crystals, known for its healing powers. Our students take refuge in the island’s quiet surrounds for focused study and reflection. Read more from our students on why they love about studying in Koh Phangan.

    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.

    From Koh Samui

    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).

    Useful Infromation

    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.
    ETIQUETTE

    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.
