200 Hour Aligned Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand

Align tradition with innovation, stillness with flow, timeless yogic wisdom with personal discovery. Begin your yoga journey with us or recommit and deepen your practice. Whichever it is you will love your teacher training experience here on Koh Phangan, our island paradise.

Program Description

For some of us teaching is a calling, a drive to share what we love and what we have to give. It is a form of devotion to our families, students and communities. For others the opportunity to dive into our practice is to experience joy and the discovery of self – also something we offer to others.

Our program combines creative and intelligently sequenced yoga classes, hands-on workshops, small group adjustment and practicum sessions and practical anatomy and philosophy to support you in deepening your personal practice and discovering your own voice and unique contribution to the yoga world and community.

Quotation Marks

Valerie is an amazing teacher. Her passion and extensive knowledge was reflected in the confidence I felt at the end of the training. It was an incredible journey of self learning, inspiration on and off the mat and ultimately a gift we pass on to others. I would definitely recommend her teacher training program to everyone who wishes to challenge themselves and deepen their practice.

Quotation Marks

The training was a great experience to improve my skills in teaching, clueing, layering. Valerie, the head of the training is knowledgable, passionate for yoga, and a great practitioner. She knows the business industry as well and shares that experience as a yoga studio owner. Most importantly she manages to help us to develop our own style and voice as a yoga teacher.

Quotation Marks

I was very satisfied with the training I received at Yama Yoga Studios. The program was broad in its scope and the teachers offered invaluable guidance throughout. I particularly appreciated the open mindedness with which Valerie encouraged us to approach varied perspectives, even when they were at odds with her own. To me, this is the hallmark of an accomplished educator
