Intensive Cross-Cultural Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand

(Special Event! Only in October)
Since the ancient times, Thailand has been closely linked to India, mainly in culture and in spirituality. Even the foothills of the great Himalayan mountain range of India begins from the highlands of Chiangmai, Thailand. Beyond the boundaries of religions and cultures, there is much ancient wisdom we both share. Our special highly intensive 15 Days 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program in Chiangmai, Thailand is dedicated to many students who desire to step into the path of yoga and meditation but are still caught up in the midst of the modern lifestyle that allows only so much time one can take off from the fast-moving life. Our teachers have been brought up and spent their lives in traditional ashram and gurukulams with yoga and meditation as their sole purpose of life. In this special occasion, they are traveling to Thailand with the pure intention of transmitting authentic knowledge of yoga and meditation from the ancient Vedic scriptures. Our school has priced the course only enough to cover expenses required to hold this program, without any additional profit beyond necessary expenses to make this happen.
