1. All Yoga Teacher Training Thailand

All Yoga Thailand Overview

All Yoga Training’s main focus is Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. Ashtanga mean’s ‘8 limbs’, which you will study alongside the physical practice; Vinyasa is pairing breath with movement. This style of yoga really aligned with what I generally did on my own mat at home or in classes. They also teach Rocket Yoga, Yoga Philosophy, Anatomy/Physiology, and meditation- often with special guest teachers flying in.

All Yoga Faculty

All Yoga’s core group of teachers are very experienced, knowledgeable, patient, and respectful. They make sure to make you feel right at home while simultaneously making you push yourself and sweat! The curriculum is very comprehensive and can be found on their website.


As far as accommodations- All Yoga provides a free dorm for the first 10 people to sign up. If you’re not among the first 10 don’t worry, the dorm at the Beam is very inexpensive- you can also stay in one of their traditional or modern bungalows. As nice as the bungalows are, I recommend the dorm since it allows you to bond with the fellow students and create unforgettable experiences. I was also very drawn to the authentic feel the dorms had- much more exciting than staying at a pristin resort.

Key Takeaways

I truly felt like I got to experience Thailand the way it should be! Located in the Koh Phangan’s lush jungle right up from the most stunning beach. This yoga teacher training in Thailand really has it all and is the perfect balance of hard work and fun.

  • What All Yoga Training Graduate says:

    Bonilla, SE

    It transformed me in a way that I have learned so much about myself that I will take with me home and create a “new” lifestyle with all the new knowledge I have. I also learned that it is also okay not to be “the best”, that in yoga there is no “best”. I always try to “overdo” things to stand out for myself but here I learned that where I am (in ex. poses) is okay. It was an emotional rollercoaster but I think you need to experience both good and bad to eventually learn and become better. I had a great time here, I gained so much knowledge that I don’t think I would get anywhere else that easily. Thank you !

    What is Yoga for you ? That was the first question the teacher asked us. At first, it was a lot about physical sensations and I wondered how to align that practice with my mind. After this amazing experience, Yoga for me is much more! It is the time to recharge, to refill, to recover until I am me again. Getting on my mat means showing up for myself and checking in for myself. We rarely take the time during the day to stop and ask ourselves how we are feeling. The time on my mat is the time for me just to do that and this is really precious. I dare, need and like to dream. I let my imagination roam free on my mat as in my life. We are as free as we allow ourselves to be. For me, Yoga is the time I start to quiet my little monkey mind and just be, feel all the feels – the good and the bad – and face the things I’ve ran away from. Yoga is my reminder to be present. Life moves far too quickly to be living in a time other than this moment. Thanks a lot!

    I couldn’t imagine that it would be possible for me to teach and more than that, to teach yoga and more than that, to teach yoga in english. When I decided to join this yoga teacher training in Koh Phangan, I didn’t know what to expect. I was a bit scared as far as I wasn’t (and still not) an expert. Also, I was a bit scared because I would probably be one of the oldest and I am a really introvert person. Everybody, teachers and students, gave me the place and the space and I felt myself as a real part of it. I very quickly figured out that we are/were all of us there for the same aim: yoga and deepening our practice and knowledge about it. Everyone was so supportive. I liked the way we practiced, we met everyday, worked hard and the way we are all part of a team, the yoga family. Thanks to you for making it come true.

    The overall yoga Teacher Training in Koh Phangan was everything I could have dreamed and more. I learned so much, have made friends for life and it really is just the start of my yoga journey. The Vinyasa part was so creative. Really unlike any Vinyasa classes I’ve experienced at home. It gave me the opportunity to get creative with sequencing and have fun and not take it too seriously. I loved about the Yin part that I could connect with the emotional side of Yin, as that was something I haven’t experienced before and was a really great foundation. I didn’t expect to have such a strong connection with the other students and the teachers as well. Annie and Aaron created such an amazing space for all of us to grow and connect with each other while still have the space to connect to ourselves. If you consider doing the training, just do it! I don’t think there is a single one of us who has regretted it. We all have had such a positive experience in an amazing learning environment.
