What you'll love about the Kula Collective 200-hour training

The Kula Collective 200-hour training provides a deep immersion into the practice of yoga - living, learning, and embracing all aspects of a yogic lifestyle and deepening the connection to oneself and the earth through the wisdom of shamanic healing practices. These traditions, designed to grant access to the infinite wisdom you carry within, are smoothly blended together to form a holistic offering rooted in the Indian philosophy of yoga.

Kula Collective's 200hr YTT focuses on the expansion of your own sacred consciousness, so that you can fully embody your practice and radiate the teachings of yoga by united in mind, body, and spirit. All of the programs meet Yoga Alliance standards for teaching methodology, anatomy, yogic theory, and special education. This course will provide a solid foundation of yoga history, the four traditional paths, eight limbs of Ashtanga yoga, meditation, and exploration of asana through the signature Kula Flow and its asana analysis.

After learning the Kula Flow you deepen your understanding of self through the study of yoga philosophy, cleansing, Bhakti Yoga, and ceremony. You share creative teaching methodology for designing balanced and holistic classes, using the Kula Signature Sequences as building blocks, and providing support for new teachers to creatively sequence their own classes. The course will give multiple opportunities for participants to teach and receive feedback, so that they leave with not only a fully prepared sequence, but multiple shorter sequences and a plethora of inspiration ready to create from the heart.

The Kula Collective 200-hour YTT provides you with concrete tools and clear strategies to live your life with passion and purpose. Perhaps you’re wondering if it’s really worth your time, money, and effort to become Yoga Alliance certified as a 200-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT). They understand how you feel; this path is not an easy one, yet they’ve found that even those who have no plans of actually teaching Yoga have come away deeply transformed by this experience, with crystal clarity on steps they can take to manifest their dreams into reality.

Throughout the time together you engage in self-inquiry to clear space for the true teacher within to shine. By releasing the stories and holdings that no longer serve you, you create more space in your bodies and mind to see your gifts, your passions and the essence of who you are as beings on a path to holistic, connected living.

This training will provide a strong foundation in yogic practice and philosophy, and a fresh perspective on life. It's an opportunity to cultivate a practice if you do not have one and to deepen your existing practice if you do. Through the unique experience of uncovering and discovering your true nature, they empower their students to become inspired leaders in their communities and wherever they go in the world. Step away from the rush and come closer to your calling, through connecting to your heart and embracing the oneness within all.

Journey through the three worlds of the Chakana

Each of the training programs have been carefully designed to incorporate 200 intensive hours, as detailed by the Yoga Alliance, using the Kula Collective signature structure of the Chakana. The Andean Cross allows a transformative journey through the lower, middle, and upper worlds of this ancient tradition, allowing you to explore the many levels of your being.

Beginning with the lower world, you explore your unconscious and physical abilities and limitations, recognizing and breaking through self-created boundaries and limiting beliefs. By releasing what no longer serves you, you create more space in the body and mind through the cultivation of awareness and the understanding of the roots of yoga, anatomy, foundational practices, and selfless service. Throughout this cycle, you will practice and learn in depth the poses and sequencing of our Kula Basic Flow, with daily opportunity to teach to peers and receive feedback.

In the middle world, you empower discovering more of who you are, through experiencing elemental awareness and self-inquiry, allowing you to embody the teachings and live to your full potential. After teaching their first full yoga class, participants dive deeper into the work of Patanjali's Ashtanga (eight limbs) philosophy, applied anatomy, philosophy, pranayama, Ayurveda, and chakras, deepening understanding of your true nature and evoking a strong love for the self and each other.

From your work in the lower and middle worlds, you experience a sense of freedom in the upper world as you expand, shifting from gross to more subtle realms of consciousness, letting you step into your radiant power. With topics such as complementary holistic health practices, yoga sutras in depth, and the profession of yoga, you close your training with a clear personal practice and teaching plan, fueled with inspiration to grow your gifts and manifest your dreams into reality.

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Koh Samui Airport (USM). The transport is not included in the price.

Arrival by ferry

Koh Pha Ngan island is easily accessible by ferry from Surattani. Ferry arrives on Koh Pha Ngan in Tong Sala town. From Tong Sala take a taxi truck to Had Rin town where you can get a boat taxi, from Sunrise beach, or a car taxi from the pier to Haad Tien Bay, home of the Sanctuary.

The easiest way to get to The Sanctuary, between mid-January to late October, is on the Thong Nai Pan ferry boat. This ferry departs from Mae Nam town (not the pier) on Koh Samui every day at 12 noon and brings you directly to Had Tien Bay (get off at the second stop Had Tien Bay). The journey is approx one hour. Mae Nam is about 15 minutes by taxi from Samui Airport.

Please note however that if the waves are big this boat doesn’t run. If you are unsure, you can phone our reception anytime from 8am on 081 271 3614 to find out if the boat is running that day.

There are also 4 ferry boats a day from the Haad Rin Queen Ferry Pier at Big Buddha Pier to Had Rin: 10:30, 13:00, 16:00 and 18:30. This ferry takes about 50 minutes, and it runs in all weathers! Big Buddha Pier is about 10 minutes drive by taxi from Samui Airport.

When you arrive in Had Rin on Koh Phangan, there will be taxi boat drivers waiting for customers bound for Had Tien. Please note that if the waves are high or there are few customers, the boat drivers may charge a higher price.

If the waves are too high for boat travel, there will be a taxi jeep waiting. This journey is quite an adventure! It takes about 40 minutes over mostly rough jungle track. Both the taxi truck and the taxi boat journeys cost around 200-300 bt per person.

If you wish to have a private charter speedboat to whiz you off to paradise this can also be organized (6,000B to 6,500B depending on weather and time). This gets you directly on to the beach less than an hour after you touch down at Koh Samui airport.

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 14% of the total price.
  • The deposit is fully refundable if the booking is cancelled up to 90 days before the arrival date.
