YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CENTRE IN THAILAND
Our 300 Hours Yoga Teacher Training in Chiang Mai, Thailand is an intensive 28 days training course. The course is suitable for those who aspire to deepen their practices, as well as to become a serious yoga instructor after completing the 200 hour YTT course.
At Yoga Samaadhi, our primary goal is to offer individuals a strong and comprehensive foundation to enhance their understanding and engagement with yoga in a holistic approach. Although yoga’s modern popularity is largely attributed to its physical aspects, like asanas, we believe that other essential elements have been somewhat neglected. In our 300 Hours Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand, our dedication lies in delivering a comprehensive and harmonious exploration of yoga. We go beyond the surface level and delve deep into each dimension of yoga, exploring its intricacies and subtleties with great attention and care. This involves incorporating spiritual teachings and practices, which play a vital role in nurturing personal and spiritual growth among our valued students.
The training curriculum encompasses fundamental subjects that make up the core elements of yoga. These subjects include pranayama, shat kriya, asana practices, yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, relaxation (yoga nidra), and meditation. As for asana practices, our school offers teachings on Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga styles.
The training entails six days of intensive practice per week, with one dedicated rest day. On this particular day, our school organizes excursions for students, offering opportunities for cultural activities, temple visits, and exploration of the local area’s natural beauty. To ensure a more peaceful experience, the rest day is usually scheduled on a weekday to avoid the higher tourist crowds and traffic typically seen on weekends.
Throughout the training duration, the course fee includes accommodations, meals, and the excursions mentioned earlier, creating an all-inclusive package for our students.

The combination of both the 200 Hours and 300 Hours of yoga teacher training adds up to a total of 500 Hours of training. Once this training hour requirement and a required duration of practice teaching is met, students will be eligible to register as a Registered Yoga Teacher – RYT 500 under the standard. Afterward, upon gaining the additional required teaching hours and experience, individuals will become eligible to upgrade to the highest teacher designation of an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher – ERYT 500 under the Yoga Alliance standard.
I took their 200-hour TTC held in Chiangmai in October 2018. It was exactly what I had hoped for. The course was holistic and we had a total of 5 teachers for the 18 of us. I really appreciate their dedication and care for each of us. And although teaching was not my primary goal, I felt prepared and encouraged to try. The course definitely gave me a strong foundation for my personal practice going forward.View More Reviews

I completed the 300h TTC in Chiang-Mai in February 2023. This experience was nothing short of life-changing. If you are considering it at all, DO IT. The course itself was everything I hoped it would be, it has changed me in so many ways but because each individual’s experience is so different I will focus my review on being more informative about what to expect (although much of this information can also be found on the school’s website). I came from the USA and had never done solo international traveling before. The school was extremely accommodating with helping get me from the airport to the school, and back again. I felt very safe at all times. The accommodations on site were very comfortable and in a beautiful, peaceful location. The people (from the instructors to the resort managers to every single individual I came across in Maewin) were so kind and helpful and made the stay amazing. All meals were included and were delicious (and all vegetarian, and while not specifically gluten free they were accommodating of any other dietary restrictions).
The course itself was well organized and well structured. The communication from Hope was excellent starting before I even officially signed up for the course (she corresponded with me and answered all the questions I had) and all throughout the course. I felt genuinely cared for by everyone involved with the school. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and, just as importantly, great at passing along their knowledge. The course is in English. 6 days a week, with one day off per week and on those days there was an optional organized activity by the school included in the cost for the program— we went to an elephant sanctuary, visited temples, hiked and visited waterfalls, and did bamboo rafting. Our course days started at 0545 and went to 1800, with a long break in the middle of the day, and we had courses in mantra chanting, pranayama, asana (2 classes each day), anatomy, philosophy, and relaxation & meditation. In February, the mornings and evenings were quite cool, it it still got hot during the day. This was nice because there weren’t many mosquitoes. My class started with 6 people and ended with 5– because the main location of the school is in Rishekesh the class size in Chiang Mai tends to be smaller, but I enjoyed this as I felt that it allowed our group to become very close and also allowed it to be very personal.
This was the best experience of my life and I would recommend it to anyone considering it 😊🙏🏻
