"Es war noch viel besser als erwartet "

Man kann dort über alles sprechen und bei Problemen wird direkt geholfen. Dir Lehrer machen einen sehr guten Job und man lernt sehr schnell selbst zu unterrichten.

"Absolutely loved my time on the retreat "

I really loved the schedule here. There was a good mixture between dynamic, relaxing yoga and the yoga philosophy. The instructors and all staff were lovely and very knowledgeable. The food was AMAZING! Beautiful location and nice shalas. Highly recommend this place!

"Tolle und intensive Erfahrung "

Die Lehrer haben ein enormes Wissen. Tausend Dank, dass ich so viel davon mitnehmen durfte.

Die Bungalows sind schön mit einer wahnsinnigen Aussicht.

Das Essen war unglaublich, Dank an die Küche.

"Trois semaines parfaites !"

J'ai passé 3 semaines à One Yoga et ai aimé me sentir à la maison, dans une ambiance sécurisante et bienveillante, bercée de belles ondes. Les sourires de chaque professeur, staff, élève, personne rencontrée tout au long de la journée ont autant d'importance que les cours de qualité, et le lieu de vie ressourçant. Tout était parfait, un havre de paix.

"Transformative experience "

Surya and Santosh were incredible instructors. What we learned in a month’s time was astounding. I can’t even imagine how it could be even better!! To go from where I was coming in knowing nothing about how to teach a yoga class to teaching a full hour practicing was so empowering. And, to go from knowing next to nothing about Yoga Philosophy to acing the final exam, thanks to Santosh’s teaching, will help me apply this knowledge to life as well as yoga classes. The food was amazing and plentiful with a nice variety. My beach bungalow was perfect! What a beautiful idyllic setting. The camaraderie of our class was exceptional- 24 new friends from all over the world!

"Super expérience!"

L'ensemble de l'expérience. La nourriture toujours fraîchement préparée et avec plein de saveurs. De plus, les cours de philosophie de Raj (yoga aussi) sont merveilleux. Kat a été super également!

"Most beautiful month ever "

On the 13th of January I finished the ytt 200h @One Yoga. Now 10 days later I wish I could return time and live it all over.

I remember when I was searching the web for a fitting yoga teacher training and felt like it was hard to make a choice. Saw many schools and read lots of reviews. For a reason One Yoga caught my eye and I kept coming back to their website.

First it was because of the duration of 28 days, then because of the location and the photos of the food etc.

I followed my intuition and booked. Still remember the first I arrived. Can’t believe time went by so fast.

From day 1 it felt like magic and super safe. It might feel a bit scary, but I can assure you every day was super special.

I have learned so much about yoga, anatomy, yoga philosophy, mantra singing, meditation and also myself. The teachers were so professional and dedicated. Every day they brought the best of energy and shared their knowledge on a really accessible understanding way. They are so inspiring and lovely. Miss them so much ❤️

The rest of the students became family and I love them all!!!!!! Miss you so much

Maybe it seems like a bit too much but I’m really not exaggerating. It feels like I’m actually missing words to express this experience.

Let’s not forget about the lovely staff. Everyone was so sweet and helpful. Whenever you need something they were there for you always.

Did I mention the location and the food already? Breathtaking!

"Bubble of Bliss"

One Yoga exceeded all my expectations. You see the images and videos online but nothing can prepare you for the feeling of being in this environment. It is a safe haven. A place that quickly makes you feel at home even though you are on the other side of the world.

The warmth of all who work in this place will ripple through you. I felt safe and supported from the very first moment.

The food is amazing. The location is wonderful. So much is only a short walk away. The campus is sublime. You are nestled in nature. The sound of the waves and birds are your constant companion.

The teachers were incredibly inspiring, all sharing their wealth of knowledge in their own unique way. Reminding you that you will go on to do the same if you wish to. Authentic and passionate souls.

Th course is very well curated. It builds you up slowly. Trust in the process. The thought of teaching a class seems preposterous when in week one but by week four, you will be ready.

These four weeks are forever nestled in my heart and soul. Thank you One Yoga for existing and offering this magical experience.

I’m glad I trusted my gut instinct and allowed myself to led here.

I loved being immersed in yoga practice and yoga philosophy six days a week all day long. It was exactly what I was looking for and hoping for. The One Yoga team is all so supportive, knowledgeable, and they have enriched my life and changed my perspective on what yoga is in my life. I felt nurtured and like they really care about my future as a yoga teacher but also personally. I felt is was a holistic program with a lot of information packed into our 28 days.

"Zeer de moeite waard"

Er hing een gezellige maar ook serieuze sfeer. Alles was top georganiseerd. Het programma was precies goed en niet overdreven zwaar. Het eten was fantastisch. Ik sliep in de accommodatie ernaast en dat was een hele mooie plek.

"Retraite complète et bienveillante"

Retraite très complète ac 3h de yoga plus 1h d'aide à la meditation, yoga nidra ou sound bath tous les jours et 1h de philosophie du yoga. Les profs sont excellents. Petits groupes.

Une ambience zen et bienveillante règne dans ce lieu.

Esther Lueck

One Yoga is perfect to me. A beautiful location next to the ocean and stunning tropical vegetation. A clean modern building flooded with light. Tastefully furnished and illuminated.

The heart and soul is the staff. Teachers, administrators, kitchen crew are very dedicated and give their best to make the people around them feel supported and confident. They are very knowledgeable and take enough time to find solutions if problems come up. Every individual is respected and encouraged to find the path that feels right for her or him. Worked for me (Jan 1 to 21, 2023)! Thank you!!!

Great variety of amazing Yoga teachers all teaching there own styles and sharing there knowledge. Yoga Nidra and Sound/Gong baths everyday help you to relax and bring up hidden emotions. Yoga philosophy classes are really inspiring and tailored to the interests and needs of the group. Food is out of this world! I will definitely come back.

"Grateful to everything at One Yoga"

Endlessly grateful to Danny for establishing One Yoga and engaging experienced yogi teachers. Grateful to all of my teachers, who share their individual experience, knowledge, pool of education in yoga and more from the bottom of their hearts. Curriculum provided systematic education in anatomy & physiology, yoga philosophy + Buddhism, art of teaching as well as attention to detail techniques in asanas, pranayamas & method of teaching. Weekly practicum challenges in Art of Teaching added high value to students’ creative thinking + self confidence resulting to growing up to teaching yoga to colleagues, thus to who are in need of genuine yoga practice (not just asanas).

The curriculum + teachers’ art of sharing invest in different levels of students, including a beginner in yoga & advanced ones, who are practicing more than a decade with pool of important contents for them to digest gently. I was a beginner and appreciate + grateful for the amount and value of knowledge I managed to absorb (as a sponge) into my empty cup.

Grateful to Ji ji and her team for delicious and nutritious meals at all times & keeping not only my home clean and comfortable but the entire facility including both shallas.

I would highly recommend One Yoga to everyone.

I thank and wish all the best to One Yoga teachers, administrative team, cook and supporting staff🙏🙏🙏

"What a journey!"

The YTT with One yoga was just everything and more than I could have asked for.

The teacher were so professional and experienced and each of them brought their very own and individual story and spirituality into the course… that made this 4 weeks an amazing and beautiful little spiritual journey far away from modern instagram yoga while we learned so so so much about the „real yoga“ (Asana, pranayama, meditation and the philosophy…)

Be aware of the tough schedule, don’t expect this 4 weeks to be a holiday! But be sure you will get the most out of this 200 hours.

The food is amazing thanks to Jiji and the kitchen crew and the accommodation lies in a beautiful environment.

I am more than glad that I went with One Yoga for my 200 hours YTT. ♥️🙏

Tout !

Le cadre paisible, la qualité des repas, la gentillesse du personnel, le haut niveau tant pratique que théorique de tous les professeurs et surtout la bienveillance permanente que l'on ressent lors de ce stage...

Tout à One yoga permet de rendre cette formation inoubliable tant elle permet de nous faire évoluer personnellement... Bien plus qu'un diplôme de professeur de yoga, c'est un véritable voyage à la recherche de soi dans le cadre le plus propice qui soit...

Merci de tout coeur à toute l'équipe de One yoga, je n'oublirai jamais tout ce que vous avez pu m'apporter durant ce séjour :)

"Didn’t expect to learn and grow so much! "

I would 100% recommend this program to everyone.

The asana classes are really good and the way the schedule is made works perfectly for beginners as well as more advanced students. The anatomy class is tailored for your yoga practice and is really interactive, which I loved. The philosophy class is given in a simple and clear way and will teach you so much about yoga and yourself!

The teachers are really good, they all come from different backgrounds and are very complementary, each of them share something different with the student which is a real add value to the program.

Plus the food is amazing (that was my biggest concern before leaving haha) and the view from the bungalows will give you the motivation to wake up early every morning!

"Magical Journey!!"

Wow wow wow! This was the most incredible journey!

I am so forever grateful for the kindness and support offered in this wonderful space.

Absolutely blown away by the dedication and passion our teachers shared with us, inspiring me every day. Love love love <3

Definitely the biggest investment I’ve ever made in myself and it I am so glad that I took the leap. My heart is so warm, and so full.

Forever in my heart this experience will be. Thank you family!

"a little piece of heaven"

every one was extremely friendly and felt like coming home to a loving family

The instructors were a perfect combination of spiritual guides, trusting friends, advisers or just a non judging shoulder to cry on

Went there not knowing what to expect and the experience was magical

"What a magical place to be!"

One Yoga in Thailand has a wonderful spiritual atmosphere. All people are so kind and loving you feel like home after a few days.

The Teachers are really friendly and I could not imagined myself someone better. The food menu was repeating itself after 3 days at first, but they were so spontaneous and changed the breakfast for us!! So lovely and magical!

There are a lot of vegan restaurants near by.

"More than just a YTTC"

La qualité de l'enseignement était exceptionnel. Koh phangan est une ile magnifique où on a la chance de vivre dans environ où tout est fait pour les yoginis. Durant ce training j'ai découvert bien plus que les techniques pure de yoga ou la philosophie. C'est un vrai travail interne !

Incroyable expérience, et prête à enseigner

"An amazing journey "

Love all of the staff, I felt they were very accommodating to everyone’s needs in a quick manner. Love each one of the teachers, very knowledgeable. Loved the daily meditation. The food was similar each day but tasty and I love how I feel now at the end, very lite and clean. I love Koh Pha-ngan, an amazing island with like minded people... the sunsets are beautiful!

"Amazing! "

This has been the best decision I've EVER made! The teachers and facilitators are amazing! Their generosity of knowledge and love cannot be expressed in words. They created an atmosphere unlike any i have ever experienced. The location is beautiful (a real conscious community). The food and accommodation was amazing. You will never regret doing this course (*have no expectations but do look at a sample timetable to be prepared for the long days)

Good luck! Loving Kindness ❤️

"An amazing experience!!"

I spent an incredible month with One Yoga where I not only learned the skills to prepare me to teach, but I also learned much more about the history and philosophy of yoga than I expected. The course was also super well-organized and ran smoothly. Koh Pha-ngan is the perfect size to feel at home during the course, while also having plenty of areas to explore.

Kamilla Rokosz

"Wonderful experience. Learned a lot so many ways"

Well organised, expectations were more than accomplished. Loved the meditation, yoga philosophy and styles of yoga, hatha/vinyasa/yin. Thank you to all the teachers for sharing their knowledge. It was a very special experience. Namaste!

"What an amazing experience!"

My month with One Yoga was simply amazing. What an incredible experience and beautiful journey it has been!

The best choice I could have taken.

I loved the island and the Shala.

The lectures were always super interesting and the yoga classes very beautiful, taught with love and to help you really get deeper in the practice. I wasn't sure if i would have been able to sit and meditate for so long but it turned out I loved the meditation in the morning.

Amazing teachers, lovely and compassionate, always there ready to listen to you or answer all the questions.

Food was also great. The staff and organisators super friendly, always smiling and happy to help.

I simply loved it! Thank you One Yoga!!

Namaste 🙏

"Most Transformative Month Of My Life!"

Wow, it's hard to find words that will do justice to the magic that happens at One Yoga. This month was filled with delicious food, incredible classes taught by caring teachers, and a spiritual journey through the body and the mind. I think one of the best parts about this course is that you are completely immersed in the world of yoga for one month. You are surrounded by like-minded individuals, learning yoga philosophy and history, taking yoga classes every day, practicing kriyas, detoxing the body, and on an island where your neighbors also live and breath yoga. It makes spiritual cultivation much easier and the process of detox and a clean lifestyle really help aid the physical body and mind into a more mindful state of being. I can't recommend this course enough if you are looking to become a teacher, dive deeper into the world of yoga, or simply to gain greater awareness of yourself. Thank you for the amazing month One Yoga!

Very accommodating, so much to learn from everyone. So grateful for the group that we had, from the instructors to the students, everyone was wonderful. Food was great and mostly vegan :) Where we practiced and learned was beautiful and peaceful. The curriculum was heavy, but extremely useful! Definitely an intense course but in the best way possible. You won’t regret doing your teacher training here.

"Danke One Yoga"

Die Ausbildung ist perfekt. Der richtige Mix zwischen Theorie, Spiritualität und Bewegung. Die Lehrer sind sooo herzlich und kompetent. Ich bin einfach nur begeistert und unendlich dankbar für diese 4 Wochen voller Höhen und Tiefen. Ich habe nicht nur den Yoga verstanden sondern auch fürs Leben gelernt!

"Life changing experience!"

In short, my experience with One Yoga Thailand was completely and utterly life changing. I was not a very experienced yogi going into the program (I only had ~2 years of exposure to yoga and typically took 5-6 classes a month), but the amount of calm and retreat I found in yoga really had me craving to learn more and deepen my practice. One Yoga Thailand had everything I was looking for: 1) a welcoming environment for those with and without much yoga experience, 2) EXTREMELY qualified teachers, 3) a community/humanitarian based mission (not focused on profitability), 4) a beautiful yet humble location and surroundings. There was a fantastic balance between asana practice, meditation, philosophy, anatomy/physiology and the art of teaching all while allowing students a good amount of downtime in the evenings and on Sundays for time to study or explore the island. What I got out of this experience most, however, was truly exploring and assessing myself (mind, body and spirit) and determine where I am now and what path I want to go on moving forward. There is so much learning in the program and so many tools you can take back to your day-to-day life and I feel like my toolbox is stocked full for a life lead by love, kindness and respect (for myself, others and the universe). Thank you One Yoga! You will forever be my family and hold a place in my heart!

"There are no words that would even come close! "

This full experience has been a journey of growth, compassion and gratitude that I will forever hold ear in my heart. The full course has exceeded my expectations and so much more. The teachers are just glowing with radiance of a whole other sort, their knowledge, love and philosophy of yoga just makes you want to get to the same level and continue to spread the joy of unity all over the earth. I have learned so so much and not only about yoga asanas but about meditation, being still, and genuinely how I react to obsticles in day to day life. It is so true that yoga is so much more than physical and I am so overwhelmed with gratitude that I was shown this by the amazing people humans that shared their wisdom with us all. The fact that 27 strangers also came togtehr from all over the world will for Dr hold a place dear in my heart, we were definetly a family which was just beautiful! If you have the consideration and what if questions you will Not be disappointed by chossing to start your journey with one Yoga. I can not recommend enough.... This will positively change youre outlook on life and so much more.

Forever loving kindess

"Amazing retreat in Vegan Paradise"

This experience was artfully put together, extremely enjoyable and crafted to really round you out as a yoga teacher. From philosophy, art of teaching, to anatomy this course is beautiful and thorough. Teachers are lovely although they do change from course to course, but Danny the curator of one yoga has excellent taste and provides fantastic direction, so he will put you in good hands. From the moment you get there you know you're safe on a lovely island with a vegan restaurants a plenty and vegan options everywhere! Made beautiful friendships, deepened my practice, developed as a teacher, still managed to see some of the island and connect with the local heart beat. Can I do it all over again please?

"More than a YTTC"

All I was hoping to receive from my YTTC was a quality information and knowledge on the physical aspects of yoga - asanas, sequences, correct alignments, efficient teaching methods and tools. And of course, a Yoga Teacher Certificate that is recognized all over the world.. What I received by the end of the course was way beyond of what I expected!!! All the instructors were Great Teachers of not only their specific subjects, but Teachers of Life; who shared their light and illuminated every single one of us. After the course, I have not only became a yoga teacher, I am now a happier person, who's world has been illuminated and transformed during these intensive four weeks.. I have gained the quality knowledge, and with that, the wisdom of living a quality life... Endlessly grateful for this transformation!

A very short word about teachers:

Danny - the main engine of One Yoga, so bright and kind!

Surya - the sun and light of One Yoga; her Art of Teaching classes were so efficient and yet so simple and clear; Yoga classes - every one of them was so enjoyable, submerging you into a full harmony with your body!

Swami Sachi - Philosophy is philosophy! But I still feel your bright smile and kind heart!

Astrid - Anatomy classes, challenging at times, but her unbelievable patience and love made it so interesting and enjoyable! Really useful and eye opening information!

Lior - Loved sining the songs of life with you!

Clair - The team's angel!

"The training was more than I could have asked for"

The instructors were kind and knowledgable, authentic and devoted to their practice. No phonies here. The education was thorough as it could be considering it is such a breadth of knowledge to give in such a short time. They have effectively planted a seed for further development, and personal growth as well as given a subtantial tool kit with which to start teaching.

"Amazingly loving and safe space to do your TTC"

Doing the 200hr TTC at One Yoga Thailand was definitely one of the BEST experiences in my life. What a beautiful and amazing journey on this green island. The people of One Yoga are truly inspiring, filled with love & kindness, and sharing a lot of knowledge. All of this is created in a safe space, where you can be your true self and where there's room to explore, learn and grow. The classes are of great value and on a high level. During this month I got a new family, my One Yoga family. <3 We'll all keep on learning from life, our experiences and from each other. And I know my One Yoga people (One Yoga teachers and new teachers) will always be there for me. One Yoga, One Love. Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu

I am in awe and I will be for a very long time. Personally, I got what I came for in the first week. I was looking to reconnect on my mat and boy, did I. Everything on top of that was filling me up and overflowing me with love, connection, exploration and self-discovery. The location is absolutely amazing, the food was varied every day, filled with everything you could possibly want, so delicious. Not to mention the views to die for. This is a magical little island, a magical little community, and a very, very special Yoga Teacher Training Program. I would warmly recommend anyone reading this to book and go. It´s an experience for life. It lifted me up, it shook me around and it gave me new perspectives. I am inspired and humbled. Go. GO!

"Peace Be The Journey "

I absolutely loved my Yoga Teacher Training experience, I came into this with an open attitude and it exceeded my expectations. One Yoga is located on the beautiful Koh Phangan specifically Surat Thani portion of the island. This location has wonderful beaches, breathe taking sunsets, and an awesome yoga/vegan vibe. Tons of restaurants to accommodate your Vegan needs. I was extremely blessed with 23 beautiful souls from all over the world and that isn't something that we have control over but so happy for my new family. Teachers were well qualified and taught with love and a smile that's hard to forget. My accommodation was at the KP Guesthouse, a private spacious room with a bathroom and tons of natural light and air-con. Also the locals were extremely hospitable and helpful. I loved renting a motorbike during free time and just cruising around the island. I can't wait to return to this magical place ~NAMASTE

"Thank you One Yoga for an amazing month!!! "

I am so glad that I chose One yoga for my TTC training. From the very beginning, everything was absolutely perfect - including communication, and organisation. I really appreciate how we were cared both for and about.

Danny, Suria and Latifa are amazing people with big hearts. They created a very friendly atmosphere. I felt very safe and they had always time to help me. They were very helpful. I was a beginner in yoga and I didn't feel uncomfortable in this course at all.

The food was delicious, we had a smoothie every day for breakfast and buffet for lunch. All the meals were vegan, and very tasty and even though the course is over I still continue to eat vegan. It changed the way I think about food.

The accommodation was really nice, I stayed in a bungalow just 6 minutes away from the school (by motorcycle). The Koh Pangan island is so beautiful and this place will stay in my heart forever. It's a spiritual place with positive and hippie vibes. Definitely I can recommend One yoga for TTC course.

All the teachers were amazing, supportive and inspiring! The theory they taught us was interesting and useful. Asana practice was divers and great for all levels.

"This was honestly one of the best experiences of my life"

This program was so much more than the physical aspect of yoga. It really expands you mind and sets you on a path for a more spiritual and balanced life. I found so much support in all of the teachers. And the knowledge and wisdom went beyond my expectations
