The program

The program is designed in the most approachable way, teaching every topic in both theoretical and practical manners. Every subject you learn will start with the theoretical class, followed by the related practice. Since this course is designed for aspirant teachers, we train you to actually teach and therefore you will start the teaching practices already from week two.

The course addresses people from all levels and enables everyone to move at their own pace within the given frame of the program. The aim is to reach all different ranges of population - whether you are already teaching yoga, an experienced practitioner or at the beginning of your journey into the world of yoga.

Throughout the training our teachers will explain the body-mind-emotion connection and how it affects human posture, human health and life choices.

Creating a strong foundation

In this month-long immersion, you will build a strong foundation and understanding of the physical and emotional layers of the yoga practice. You will learn about physical anatomy and Kinesiology, skeletal misalignments, common pathologies, common yoga injuries and how to avoid them, Asana alignment (by Iyengar Yoga), hands-on adjustments, therapeutic touch, Ayurveda, philosophy and much more.

Learning about alignment and the therapeutic aspects of yoga

At Luna Alignment Yoga we believe that the yoga practice should always be adjusted to fit the student’s needs, even when teaching a large group. Therefore, the aim is to teach you - whether you are an aspiring yoga teacher or a yoga teacher already - the important core principles behind body structure, alignment and therapeutic yoga, so that you can integrate this knowledge later on in your self-practice and teaching.

You will be able to reinvent your yoga practice and teaching with a new extensive toolbox of yoga methods, approaches, and techniques, along with the ability to evaluate individual needs and adapt the yoga practice accordingly, enabling you to create intelligent, health-promoting, injury free, and adapted yoga environment.

The base of the approach and teachings is Asana alignment (by Iyengar yoga) and we see it as the core foundation of all kinds of yoga practices (Hatha, Vinyasa, Alignment based, Therapeutic, Ashtanga Vinyasa. etc.). We encourage our students to find their own voice as yoga teachers relying on this solid ground of alignment.

Venue

Luna Alignment Yoga

Organiser Tal Swissa

We are located in the small yogi Srithanu village on the breathtaking Koh Phangan Island, Thailand. Our venue is situated in the lovely tranquil garden, quietly nested in the green, lush and rich jungle surroundings of the Island. Our school is only a few minutes' walk from the beach and the accommodations we offer and the village center.

How to get here

Arriving to Koh-Phangan

Arrival to the island is by ferry. You should arrive to the Thong-Sala pier which is the closest to Srithanu, our village.
Ferries are run by 3 companies: Lomprayah, Seatran Discovery and Raja Ferry (depending where you come from). They run from morning till afternoon (Raja Ferry runs later as well). You can check their timetable online.

Important: Since arrival-to and departure-from the island are only by ferries, please pay attention to the ferries schedule in advance - on your way to the island make sure you can make it to the ferry to Koh-Phangan on time, and on the way out of the island make sure you can arrive on time for your ongoing travels.
Please also note that ferries can sometime be late so we advise to take an extra buffer time in your itinerary plan.


Upon arriving to Koh-Phangan

When arriving to the island before the course you should go to your accommodation. At Thong-Sala pier taxis are available and they can take you there. The ride to Srithanu should take about 15 minutes and cost about 200 THB. You can also take a taxi-bike for about 150 THB (taxi-bike drivers are wearing orange vests).
We will meet all the students on the first day of the course and walk together to our school. We will give more details about the meeting on the course facebook group.


Arrival by airplane

The nearest airport to Koh-Phangan is in the neighbor island Koh-Samui. At the airport counter (right when you make your way out of the airport) you can buy - on arrival - a joint ticket for a taxi to the pier & ferry to Koh-Phangan. You can go there after you pick up your luggage and they will tell you when is the next ferry leaving, and sell you the joint ticket.
Ferries depart several times daily from Koh-Samui to Thong-Sala pier in Koh-Phangan, with the last one at around 16:30. Taxi ride from Koh-Samui's airport to the pier will take about 10-15 minutes and the ferry ride to Koh-Phangana about 30 minutes.

Another - usually cheaper - option is to fly to Surat-Thani on the mainland. From Surat-Thani's airport, you would need a joint bus & ferry ticket to arrive to Thong-Sala pier in Koh-Phangan, and this journey would take about 5 hours. It is advised to purchase the tickets in advance.

Arrival by bus

The least expensive way to travel is to take one of the overnight buses from Bangkok to Surat-Thani. From there, you would need a joint bus & ferry ticket to arrive to Thong-Sala pier in Koh-Phangan. This would take several hours. The trip’s joint ticket can be arranged by travel agencies in Bangkok. It is advised to purchase the tickets in advance.

Arrival by train

Another way to get to Koh-Phangan is taking an overnight train with a proper bed from Bangkok to Surat-Thani. From there, you would need a joint bus & ferry ticket to arrive to Thong-Sala pier in Koh-Phangan. This would take several hours. The trip’s joint ticket can be arranged by travel agencies in Bangkok. It is advised to purchase the tickets in advance.

Visa & Health information

Visa to Thailand

A very convenient option is to issue a 60 days tourist visa* before arriving to Thailand in Thai embassies or consulates.
Please note that once the visa is issued there is usually a time-frame limitation to activate it, meaning to actually enter Thailand - so you should not apply too much in advance (you should check that exact time according to the place where you plan to issue the visa).

Another option is upon arriving to Thailand, at the airport, you can receive a 30 days tourist entry visa* (please note that this is not valid to all nationalities). If needed, you can extend it for another 30 days tourist visa* later on in Koh-Samui (starting from the day the first 30 days expire). That will require an easy couple of hours process including a short ferry trip from Koh-Phangan and back, and can be done during our TTC - we are giving optional days in which the students go there together.

* The above information may change according to nationality, please check your specific terms and conditions according the passport you are holding.

Important:
- Please note that over-staying is illegal (even for a day).
- You should be entering Thailand with a tourist visa. Yoga TTCs, and yoga schools in general, are not considered as an educational or study (or any other) purpose when it comes to the visa to Thailand. So please always indicate the reason of your trip as Holiday/Vacation.
