100 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand

Our 12-day immersive course is designed for yoga teachers, and yogis who want to bring more Yin yoga into their teaching and practice. This course is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program, and hosted on the beautiful tropical island of Koh Phangan, Thailand.

Program Description

Yin Yoga blends the introspective power of meditation with the energy-enhancing properties of yoga and pranayama. It is a perfect complement to active lives and yoga practices, and suitable for practitioners of all levels.

This training has been designed for yoga teachers and yoga practitioners who seek to enhance their teaching or personal practice by turning inward and further discovering the body, breath and mind in ways that are rarely worked in more dynamic “yang” yoga styles.

Enrich your teaching and discover new ways to explore the body-mind connection using the tools of Yin Yoga in this training that combines hands-on instructive teaching and powerful spiritual inquiry.

Quotation Marks

My experience at Ananda was amazing. The place is really beautiful and close to the beach. You can easily rent a bike or a scooter to ride around the island (when you have time!), but you can also enjoy hanging around the resort, which has a beautiful garden area and saltwater pool.
