The one month course will provide you with a deep experience into the practices of yoga. We start at the beginning with the foundations demonstrating how basic techniques practiced correctly can create an enlightening and blissful experience. Progressions made throughout the course will meet your individual needs to explore deeper with longer practices and meditations and more complex asana and pranayama.
You will start to practice teaching with individual elements progressing into whole classes during the course. We will teach you yoga philosophy that will enable you to understand the journey of your students. Anatomy is an important component of our courses as it will allow you to understand safe and stable physical alignment for yoga poses.
All elements of the yoga teacher training course will have lessons, examples and objectives that connect to the theory aspects delivered. By the end of the course you will be skilled and confident enough to teach your own yoga classes.
Students will need to have had at least 3 months of regular yoga practice prior to starting the course.

The course was truly an amazing experience. As well as deepening my yoga knowledge and gaining the skills and confidence to go out and teach I had the best time imaginable. Spending a month in a great place surrounded by great people and doing something I love has left me feeling extremely fortunate and ready to share my love of yoga. I thoroughly recommend the Live Yoga school to those wanting to become a yoga teacher.
I’m a yoga addict and this course gave me the yoga experience I craved. Training daily with great teachers in such a beautiful place was just awesome. I was able to connect with myself on a deeper level than I had before and the transformation I made during the course has been life changing. I made some new friends that I know will be friends for life. So happy I made the decision to choose Live Yoga.
I have always wanted to train to be a teacher but never had the time before. I made the decision to quit my job and travel and get some qualifications that could lead me into a different employment direction. The teachers at Live Yoga really helped me gain the knowledge, confidence and expertise to go back and become a teacher. I loved every minute of it and found the experience extremely uplifting.
From the moment I first made contact with Live Yoga they really impressed me. They organized everything for me from my journey to and from Bangkok as well as taking into account my dietary requirements. The course was amazing in a beautiful location and I had such a good time. I loved the luxury modern accommodation and having my own kitchen area, it was perfect and the Live Yoga house was breathtaking.
