What our students say

“A month of truly inspirational teaching, wisdom, insight and shared knowledge as well as laughter, joy, tears, release… It is hard to articulate what I received on this beautiful training for it is so much more than words can convey. My heart is full of gratitude and I am ready to share it with others… May the light that I received ignite the light within all those whose path crosses with mine…” – Tanya Marie Green

200hr YTT in Thailand / 2024
I am incredibly grateful, that I was able to do the 200 h with Path of Yoga honestly. The teachers Katrien, India, Amy and James were unbelievable. The Asana in the Morning, the lectures, chanting, being together with this wonderful group of heartwarming souls, the hugs, the laughs, the tears... Everything was just a once in a lifetime experience. I am still thinking about it and miss it everyday.

200hr YTT in Thailand / 2023
I did the 200hr teacher training this October in chaing Mai and it was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. Path of Yoga had been recommended to my by an experienced yoga teacher friend and I'm so glad I signed up. The teaching from Amy and Katrien was exceptional, the location and accommodation everything I could have wanted and I left feeling like I had all the tools needed to start a teaching career. The course content is much more extensive than other teacher trainings out there and I not only learnt so much about yoga and how to teach it but about myself too. I would recommend to anyone, go and see how amazing it is!

200hr YTT in Thailand / 2021
Although I was already an experienced yoga teacher when I joined this TTC I have still learned a ton during the course! It was also very refreshing to hear a new perspective on some of the concepts I already knew. Anatomy classes were really awesome and well presented to help maximize knowledge retention. Personal transformation part of the course was well integrated in the overall curriculum and helped us work on some of our personal challenges. The course was very intense and packed with practice and teachings but was also a lot of fun! Highly recommended!

200 + 300 Hour YTT - THAILAND
Completing both the 200 hour and 300 hour over a period of ~ 2 months was intense, but ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT. I am and will be forever grateful to James French and all the amazingly talented teachers he's brought on to the team for all the knowledge, time, effort, heart and soul they've put in. It was no easy breezy training, but I can almost guarantee you will come out extremely talented and confident, ready to take on the yoga teaching world; I feel so equipped to finally carry out my dream. This is definitely the school for both people who are just starting out or those wanting to take their teaching to the next level.

200hr YTT in Thailand / 2023
I’ve just completed the 200hr training with path of yoga in Chiang Mai and can’t recommend it highly enough. The teaching team were fantastic, they really went the extra mile to make sure everything ran smoothly and they are so clearly passionate about yoga and teaching they were really inspirational. This course is very in depth, I felt like I learned so much in just a month. Mala Dhara was wonderful, really unique accommodation, in the middle of rice paddy fields, surrounded by mountains with delicious food. So many thanks to Amy, Katrine and Saphia for all their hard work xxx

The Subtle Body - Prana & the Chakras

Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, which lays beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing prana, this vital life force, and how it moves through the Chakras or energetic centers. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.

The Science of the Breath

The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice. The breath has a profound influence on the nervous system and a deep effect on life quality, both on and off the yoga mat. Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to “advanced” pranayama.

You will study and practice a variety of techniques that are aimed at the development of your own personal meditation practice and being able to hold space while teaching.
