Program

During the ten-week training, you will deepen your knowledge of yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology, teaching methodology, the yogic lifestyle, and more. Their hands-on approach will give you profound insights into yoga through direct experience.

Throughout the training, you'll dwell on the details of yoga asanas and unravel their anatomical underpinnings along with their effects on your energetic body. The study of ancient yoga philosophy will unlock the secrets of thousand-year-old wisdom, wrap the teachings into the right context, and explain the reasons behind the techniques employed.

The guided meditation program is designed to deepen your introspective practice, preparing you for a life-long mindful journey pointing you in the direction of the goal of yoga - self-realization. The breathing exercises practiced in the progressive pranayama classes will raise your energy and teach you powerful Prana techniques to purify your body and mind from energy blockages.

The experienced instructors will reveal invaluable teaching tips and lead you to create a safe space to guide your students on their spiritual path. With a focus on teaching methodology, our training course will help you develop the skills to correctly sequence a class, adjust and assist students, and respond to the unique needs of each student.

All this, in our private beachfront resort, surrounded by nature and the crystal-clear waters of a paradise island in Thailand with healthy plant-based meals served daily. Plus, as a special benefit, you will get two-year free access to One Yoga Online Studio to help you keep up your practice, any time, anywhere thanks to our Yoga & Meditation App, featuring over 1,000 classes, courses, and challenges.

This 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training is not just an educational program, but a transformative journey of self-discovery, personal growth, and professional development. Immerse yourself, evolve, and emerge as a certified, confident, and compassionate yoga teacher.

Top-Level Certification

The curriculum exceeds Yoga Alliance standards, allowing you to register as an RYT 500 teacher upon completion. This top-tier certification gives a significant edge in global yoga career opportunities compared to the 200-hour and 300-hour certificates. This is the highest certification level recognized by Yoga Alliance, the largest professional organization for yoga teachers.

An RYT 500 certification will pave the way for a bright future in the yoga field, anywhere in the world. With a clear edge over the popular 200-hour training and the advanced 300-hour certification, a 500-hour certification opens the doors to outstanding career opportunities as a yoga teacher.

Extended practicum

Newly-certified teachers may find it challenging to apply what they have learned in the controlled environment of a Teacher Training course to real-life yoga classes. This is why at One Yoga they offer the possibility of continuing the practical training by teaching free classes to the local community.

This is a unique opportunity for new teachers to grow their confidence, sharpen their teaching skills, and learn how to address specific student requirements. The experienced teachers are always around and happy to answer your questions and support you every step of the way. As you sharpen your teaching experience in a familiar environment, you also give back to the local community and share your passion for yoga with others.

What makes this training special?

The combination of this 200-hour and 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training courses gives you a seamless and profound learning experience. As the first-level training naturally flows into an advanced course, those who long to “know more” will feel completely satisfied.

One Yoga’s vision goes beyond teaching physical asanas as part of the holistic approach to Yoga as a multifaceted, comprehensive self-development journey. This 500-hour training covers subjects such as pranayama, philosophy, mudras, bandhas, and meditation techniques with a particularly high level of detail.

As a matter of fact, many teachers who choose to further develop their teaching skills months or years after their first training course, find themselves in need of reviewing basic notions of yoga philosophy, anatomy, physiology, and specific technique details. The second part of this 500-hour training reinforces and deepens the concepts learned in the first part while your memory is still fresh.

As you develop a deeper bond with the teacher team and grow more familiar with the facilities and the space, you find yourself in a proficuous learning environment. On the other hand, the teachers will also get to know you deeper so they can tailor their supportive efforts to your specific needs.

Dedicating 10 weeks of your time to this intensive 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training course is a life-changing experience. It will shape your future as a fully qualified Yoga instructor, surpassing the standards of most entry-level yoga teachers in terms of preparation, confidence, and depth.
