Koh Phangan, Thailand

Study Yoga with me on a tropical island in Thailand!

Ananda Yoga & Detox Center is located along Hin Kong beach, with a stunning view over the Gulf of Thailand. People come from all over the island every evening to enjoy the beautiful sunsets on our beach.

All of our accommodation includes air condition and fans.

All of our rooms are on site, which is the most convenient way to focus on your training.

Only guests who are enrolled in one of our retreat programs are allowed to stay at our resort. Therefore, you will not be disturbed by random tourists who are not invested in the vibe, security, and serenity of our relaxing atmosphere.

Partners are allowed to stay with you in a Private Room. Extra charges will apply.

Most Western countries can receive a 30 day visa exemption when you arrive to the Kingdom of Thailand by air. We strongly recommend that you check with your own country’s embassy or consulate to verify your exact requirements.

The 30 day visa exemption can typically be extended for an additional 30 days with a quick visit to the immigration office on Koh Samui.

Due to the length of this training, a 60 day tourist visa might be your best option to place your mind at ease, and not worry about the extension at an immigration office.

We have created a resource page to help you arrive here by air, land, and sea: https://johnnynasello.com/yoga/travel-koh-phangan.html/

The CDC and WHO recommend the following vaccines for Thailand: typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, cholera, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, and influenza. However, none of these vaccines are required.

Yes, you have Sundays off! Go to the beach, plan a diving trip, go snorkeling, explore a temple, hike through the jungle. It’s your day to adventure or relax.

Plan on being in training 8 to 10 hours each day. You will get breaks throughout the day to study, eat, and process.

No. This is an advanced teacher training, and you should have an established and consistent yoga practice. However, there is no need to know advanced poses such as headstand, handstand or other arm balances and inversions. It does not matter if you are not flexible. 

After you complete the advanced yoga teachers training course, you will be certified to register with Yoga Alliance as a 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher. (You combine your 200 Hour Training + Your 300 Hour Training)

Yoga Alliance is the most respected and largest organization of certified yoga teachers in the world.

A 500 Hour Certification sets you apart as someone who has spent the time to further your studies, and sharpen your craft.

Our graduates can, and DO teach all over the world!

Our yoga hall has mats, blocks, straps, and pads. It’s not necessary to bring your own, as traveling with a yoga mat can be cumbersome, but sometimes the comfort of “our” mat is nice. We also have mats for sale in our yoga shop, should you wish to purchase one here.

  • Baggage and personal items coverage – If someone steals something from your bag or your luggage is lost or delayed, travel insurance will pay you for your trouble.
  • Emergency medical insurance – Just as you wouldn’t want to go without medical insurance in everyday life, when you’re traveling abroad it’s important to stay covered in case of accidents.
