Yoga training is very popular around the globe, and Thailand is no exception to that. In Asia, moreover, we find notably India (Rishikesh, Auroville, Goa, among other places), Indonesia (Bali) and Thailand (Chiang Mai, Koh Phangan, Phuket, Koh Samui) being the hotspots of serious Yoga training in general, and Yoga Teacher Training Programs in particular.
In Thailand, you’ll find the established local Yoga schools and training centers offering teacher training, Wellness retreats and resorts hosting Yoga teacher training programs provided by foreign or local teachers, and full-fledged specialized Yoga retreat centers. Some training centers offer daily drop-in classes, others only offer punctual retreats, some offer both.
There are perhaps as many sorts of Yoga teacher training courses as there are individual Yoga schools or teachers, each of them emphasizing certain Yoga aspects or Yoga styles of learning the “trade.” In general, one can find 200-hours, 300-hours, and 500-hours Yoga teacher training programs, with a duration of roughly 5 weeks up to 12 weeks, of which most of those are usually Yoga Alliance USA accredited.
It’s important for the aspirant student to read well the training offerings to get a good idea of what exactly is offered, taking into account Yoga styles, lineage, depth of teachings, duration, ambiance and setting, group size, accreditation, costs, validity of certification in your home country, and so on.
In Thailand, a number of foreign Yoga training programs are hard to track, because they’re advertised over global or local Event Sites, and provided by foreign teachers once a year or perhaps twice only. Training locations of these retreats can be virtually anywhere in Thailand, such as in a hotel, lodge, resort, wellness retreat, Yoga school, on a farm, etc.
Well, for what it is, below we’ve gathered for you the Yoga teacher training programs in Chiang Mai offered by established Yoga schools, centers, retreats and resorts, which are known to regularly offer Yoga Teacher Training courses.
