"One month of bliss and challenge in paradise."

It was great to learn so many different styles of yoga from lots of different teachers. It really inspired us to find our own voice as teachers and move forward with confidence.

"Best month of my life!!!"

What a truly amazing experience, everything was better than expected! From day 1 Sunny and Shannon took really good care of us planning and perfecting the schedule so we could focus on all the aspects of our learning. We had experienced so many different styles of yoga and also learned about other aspects of yoga living / teaching such as ayurveda, philosophy and anatomy. All the teachers have been amazing and totally different so we could find something to suit us all. The course gives you a lot of opportunities to create and practice your own sequences, which is really great. Upon graduation those of us who wanted to even had a chance to teach a real class! The course has been a perfect balance of theory, meditation, pranayama and asana practice, which really brings the poses to life and you get a really good understanding of doing and teaching them. Sunny's personality is super positive and she made us smile every day whilst working us very hard - what a great teacher! The living arrangements and the food provided was superb too, we even walked away with a goodie bag. Amazing people and great value for money! Thank you :-)

-The luxury of having that space to ourselves for the entire month.

-The food was delicious, so healthy and nourishing.

-Appreciated the cotton mat, strap, and asana book.

My fiancée and I went to sunny yoga every day we were on vacation in Koh Phangan because we loved Sunny's classes so much! She offers specialized attention to each student with small class sizes and is able to easily guide all levels. The classes are challenging class and her teaching style is fun and motivating. Not to mention that practicing yoga looking out onto the waves crashing was the most beautiful setting. Sunny's classes were a definite highlight of our Thailand trip- and we hope to take classes with Sunny again!

I was staying next door to Blue Ocean Gardens and loved popping over to Sunny's yoga classes every morning. Classes are small and cater to all levels. The platform is right on the beach and there's nothing nicer than feeling the sea breeze and listening to the waves as you practice. Sunny is a wonderful teacher and encourages you to just go for it no matter what your ability is! Thoroughly recommended!

Sunny is the nearest thing to a perfect yoga teacher I've found. She is helpful, attentive, funny, energetic, and a pleasure to be around. Her classes are challenging and fun, and she offers a variation on every pose to make them as hard or as easy as you like. I will be continuing in her class for as long as I'm on Koh Pha Ngan.

I can absolutely recommend Sunny and her yoga classes! I have tried yoga for the first time, and she explained and introduced it very well. She was helpful and friendly. If you want to practice yoga at a great spot on the beach, then join Sunny Yoga

Yoga with Sunny was a pleasure everyday. To warm up and relax, there was a welcome routine with the same exercises but in between, she managed with ease to bring us to perform well in spite of 30 degrees in the shade. I can do the crow for the first time! Thank you Sunny, and namaste.
