The 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training in Chiang Mai, Thailand is an intensive 22 days program. The Yoga TTC course not only strengthens the essential foundations of yoga to ensure students would be able to build upon these foundations to further their practices.
The Yoga TTC course is also a prerequisite to the 300 Hours Yoga TTC, an advanced level of yoga teacher training, compulsory to undertake in order to acquire RYT 500 registered with Yoga Alliance USA.
Our main lead teachers are brought up in spiritual families with yoga as an important part of their youth and life principles. They aim to bring balance between all subjects of yoga which are mainly categorized as yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy & physiology, pranayama, meditation, relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and practical yoga sessions (i.e. Hatha yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga).
In this modern day, yoga has been made into a sort of sport and exercise by many fitness companies and even adopted by many freelance yoga teachers. Yoga has lost the spirituality that is the essence of it all. Yoga Samaadhi wants to be part of the movement that brings spirituality aspect back into what people call “yoga”. They aim to give you the experience that makes you understand how meditation is linked to the practical yoga session more than you realized, and that all yoga concepts and practices are just a part of going deeper into yourself and brings you closer to peace and self-realization.
Students who complete their subsequent trainings are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance USA as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT200).
