We usually ask for 1-2 years of yoga practice experience, but can be flexible with that if we feel the student is eager to learn and ready to go through the course.
You should take into account that this is a demanding course and be ready for an intense month.

In our course we don't focus on asana performance, but on the alignment, the anatomy and therapeutic aspects of it and how to avoid injury while practicing.

Yes, this program is specifically designed to give our graduates to tools to actually start teaching in a professional way.

All ages, but mostly between 20 and 50.
A reservation requires a deposit of 50% of the total price. The rest of the payment should be paid 30 days before the course start date.
Will I need a laptop or any electronic device for this Training?
You need to have a really good reason for missing a class. We devote ourselves to the course and to our students, and we expect our students to show the right approach and take the course seriously. You are allowed to miss up to 3 classes during the course, more than that will result in you being entitled for a completion certificate and not a graduation one.
Sickness / Visa Run are not considered as missed classes.
We have two written tests and one practical test. The first test is done with an open book and the second one is quite simple and straightforward.
Our learning environment is very friendly and adapted. We do not mark grades, but use the tests to evaluate our students. We want to see your perseverance and desire to learn, not your grading.
In the practical test you will teach the group for 15 minutes. At the end of it you will get our feedback as means of growth and improvement. You will be more than ready for it, since by then you'll have enough teaching practice time.
In case the results in any of the tests are not sufficient we will guide you and help you to prepare for taking the tests again. Everybody passes the examinations. Students receive extra tutoring and additional attempts at their tests.
Yes. We have mats in our venue, and mats can be found in stores in Thailand and also in Koh-Phangan, but unfortunately they are not good quality ones. Remember, Thailand is a tropical humid country and a good non-slippery yoga mat is required for an enjoyable and efficient yoga practice. Also please bring yourself a yoga strap and a sweat towel for practice is also recommended.
What else should I bring?
Comfortable yoga practice clothes, swimsuit of course and something warm in case it gets a bit cold in the evenings. You'd be surprised to find that local convenient stores offer nearly everything and in very affordable prices: a variety of good toiletries, perfumery product, stationary product, medicine and of course delicious snacks and coffee 😊
