Throughout this course, you will have the experience of living in community while you surround yourself with healing power of nature. This is the best way to connect the mind, body and soul. Students get a mix of the art of teaching yoga asana, along with the well-rounded exposition in philosophy, lifestyle and yoga techniques. Emphasis is placed on the practice and development of teaching skills, including how to organize a class, create trust, pranayamas, philosophy and how to make corrections to postures. You will learn how to teach yoga with precision, emphasizing the presence of the heart.

The course emphasizes teaching from beginners to intermediate levels. Therefore we focus on safety, the use of props, correct breathing and alignment as well as restorative asana, relaxation and meditation.

La Casa Shambala

Organiser Rakel Lopez

Join us on the enchanted island of Koh Phangan, a tropical paradise tucked away in the Gulf of Thailand. With 70% of the island remaining as protected national forest, you are guaranteed a beautiful natural setting. Filled with lovely beaches, majestic mountains, intricate temples, and a strong local culture, this island is the perfect location for a rejuvenating getaway. While staying with us, feel free to explore the area filled with activities ranging from hiking and snorkeling to scuba diving and ziplines through the jungle. Situated in a remote area of this captivating island, we offer seclusion and peace from the turbulent outside world. Almost everything on our property has been created with natural materials such as bamboo, coconuts and wood chips, so we are surrounded by the call of nature. With lush gardens and unique accommodation (simple and beautiful like nature itself), La Casa Shambala is a little slice of heaven. Full of art made by the students and volunteers which have stayed with us over the years, it has become like a place right out of a fairy tale. Come to swim in our art pool, meditate on the “Nothing Temple” or practice in the only second floor shala with complete jungle and mountains views on Koh Phangan. Everybody always talks about the positive energy that the place has and that it is something recommended for everyone to experience at least once in their life.

How to get here

To get to Koh Phangan we recommend a flight.  There are 2 airports nearby:

 

1) Koh Samui (USM) - only a 20 - 30 min boat ride to Phangan but flight tickets can be quite expensive

2) Surat Thani (URT) - 3 - 5 hour journey to Phangan but flight tickets are super cheap.

 

You can book the transfer from the airport to Phangan online.

Either way, we offer a free pickup from Thong Sala pier to bring you to our location. We only ask you to send us your arrival details at least 48 hours in advance so we have time to organize.
