    Namaste. Apoorva here, I am brought up in a culturally rich spiritual family. hence, since my childhood I’ve been exposed to vedas, upanishads and Indian culture. At a very tender age we started conversing in Sanskrit, Learning and chanting mantras from the Vedas and the Upanishads at home. In my teenage I was exposed to Yoga from Prashanthi kuteeram, which is now globally known as Svyasa yoga university. Later on along with my family, We started a gurukulam (traditional Vedic school) for girls for free, the education system physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually empowers girls with ancient Indian wisdom. From, 2016 onwards with my exposure and experience in teaching, I’ve travelled to many countries spreading the beauty and knowledge of Indian Scriptures (Teaching shlokas, mantras, yoga philosophy and Bhagavadgita). We also conduct short term Yoga and cultural retreats (in Mysore) to connect people deeply into the riveting cultural and spiritual roots of India. Post the pandemic I am seriously pursuing studies in Advaitha Vedanta Philosophy under my teacher Swami Visharadananda Saraswati and Dr. KK Subramani. Along side I am Pursuing my M.Sc in Yoga therapy. In this world of hundreds of conscious living beings, I’ve truly been a blessed soul to get this opportunity to study and practice such divine knowledge. I shall continue to be learning and sharing this knowledge of love, light and liberation.

    The Yoga Shala: Prana Hall

    The Prana Hall is located in Haad Tien Bay – a quiet cove nestled in between Haad Rin Bay and Haad Wai Nam Bay in the southeast area of the island. One of the island’s best-kept secrets, the Shala is nested in the middle of a green hillside of tropical jungle

    This gorgeous, secluded space is topped with an astrologically aligned pyramid. Together with the soothing sound of a gentle waterfall running underneath, the Prana Hall has been called magical, vibrant and powerful.

    Picture yourself practicing on an open yoga platform, with views of the sun glistening across the panoramic ocean. The Yoga Shala is truly another world away. Read more about a typical day at our 200 Hour yoga teacher training in Thailand.

    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.

    Daniella, USA All Yoga Graduate

    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. I loved the sound of living on

    Nuria, Spain MAR 2023 GRADUATE

    I started practising yoga during a very difficult time of my life and as it got harder, I knew I wanted to deepen my practice and go further within as yoga has helped me so much. A good friend recommended the All yoga YTT and I would have never imagined what was ahead. Here, on this beautiful island that I now call home, I got to meet the most amazing and beautiful humans that I now call my family. The bonds that I have made throughout these three weeks will forever live in my heart. My wonderful teachers David, Charlotte and Shivani believed in me when I didn't, gently pushed me when I needed encouragement, supported me and loved me throughout this rollercoaster journey. Now on the other side as a new teacher I am at the start of what I hope will be my new healthier, happier, more authentic life. I am closer to clarity, closer to my inner self, happier and so grateful to have done this for myself. I am hoping I can now help others with the tools and ones that All yoga has provided me. If you want a once-in-a-lifetime experience, if you want to arrive into the unknown of your soul don't hesitate to come to paradise. All yoga will be there at the other end. Thank you forever!

    Camille, USA FEB 2023 GRADUATE

    While I struggle to convey through words how illuminating this training has been on myself understanding, growth motivation, health, and clarity of being - here is my best shot. From day one my experience revealed to me how transformational yoga is and that I am the only medicine I will ever need. Instructors are beyond special, the collective energy generated from their presence, knowledge and inspiration empowered me to see past any challenges and limitations I felt before. Despite having undergone an extensive joint replacement surgery a couple of months prior, I'm the strongest and healthiest I've felt. I loved everything, from the course materials, instructions, the location (Bali = paradise) and wonderful classmates. I did not want to leave. I have no doubts about advancing my practice and my capability to do so.

    Jesse, USA FEB 2023 GRADUATE

    Deciding to complete the 200hr YTT course with All Yoga is one of my best decisions so far. Waiting almost 3 to 4 years made this experience all the more worth it. David, Seline and Jess are superb instructors who made us all feel fully seen, welcomed and prepared for our journey into the world as yoga teachers and practitioners. This training, living on Nusa Lembongan, connecting with people I would now call life long friends, has given me a truly transformational experience.

    Delee, Canada FEB 2023 GRADUATE

    All Yoga Training was an excellent choice. David and Seline are very knowledgeable, highly trained and professional. Besides the physical training, the teachings of philosophy and anatomy were equally important. Time spent on kriya, pranayama and meditation were extensive, which I personally felt became the most important part of the yoga training. As an alternative teacher I believe self-care and the internal practice create a more mindful teacher. I encourage those who take the Ashtanga course be physically prepared, some practice in Mysore is encouraged - I had little experience and was challenged learning the sequence. The reviews were fantastic and glad I chose All Yoga truly best in my opinion.

    Olivia, Canada JAN 2023 GRADUATE

    This teacher training truly changed my life. It opened me to parts of myself I had yet to discover, including a deepened intuition and greater capacity for love in a short period of time. I developed a sense of discipline that I will carry with me the rest of my life, as I now understand the importance of discipline and the joy it can bring. The teachers completely exceeded my expectations. They taught a balance of the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of yoga instead of focusing of the physical only, which has gained so much popularity. The teachers put in so much effort and love to make every moment so special for us. Their passion for yoga and connection never went unseen and they fostered an environment where each student felt safe to be there truest selves. I came expecting to focus on my own growth and ended up being part of a family of like-minded open hearted people. I am so grateful and I would recommend All Yoga to anyone.

    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.

    Thailand adventures

    Thailand is an affordable destination to travel, with a low cost of living making it a popular choice for those looking to enjoy their travels before or after their 200 Hour yoga teacher training in Thailand. The island of Koh Phangan is a designated ecotourism zone and has lots to explore from secluded coves, jungle trails, refreshing waterfalls and hilltop temples. Here are some of things you can do on your days off on Koh Phangan:

      Here are a just a few activities you can enjoy in your free time:
    • Ang Thong National Marine Park is the most spectacular island archipelago in Thailand. Just a short boat ride away, you can hike to spectacular viewpoints and explore caves along the way
    • Hike to the island's highest peak Khao Rao to marvel at panoramic views. Pass by the infinity pool of Khao Ra waterfall to cool down post-hike
    • The expansive Than Sadet National Park makes up a third of the island where you can hike, visit waterfalls and beaches
    • Visit a number of traditional temples with spectacular views of unspoilt rainforests: Wat Koh Tahm, Wat Po and Guanyin Temple
    • Enjoy the sunset accompanied by people singing, playing drums and dancing at Zen beach

    Traveling in Thailand

    If time and budget allow, we recommend spending some time before or after your 200 Hour yoga teacher training in Thailand to explore the area. Thailand is well developed for travelers 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.

    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.

    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.
