Welcome to the Path of Yoga!
We consider ourselves a yoga family and are an authentic, heart-centred Yoga School led by Amy, Chris, Katrien and India.
We have a passion for teaching teachers, and strive to uphold the heart of the yogic tradition whilst incorporating knowledge from cutting-edge, modern sports science.
Our teacher training programs and retreats are small-group deep journeys, with a focus on self-transformation and an exceptionally high standard of education. As yoga teachers, we consider ourselves to be in service to our students and the small intimate group size means that we are able to give each student the support and personal attention needed to make this month a truly life-changing experience.
We carefully choose locations that are comfortable, beautiful, peaceful and conducive to deep work. This means that although we are within an hour of an airport, our weekdays are in nature, free from the distractions of tourist nightlife and the modern world. At the same time, we are close enough to the town that on your day off you can go sightseeing, shopping or explore the tourist centre.
On a Path of Yoga teacher training, the teachers live in the retreat centre with you, and we share all of our meals together. This means that you get an extraordinary amount of access and personal attention, which is a key aspect of what makes our offering a unique and once in a lifetime experience.
Our teacher training graduates have gone on to teach in their own communities, start businesses, and run retreats.
Although we have grown to offer several yoga teacher trainings each year, we have never lost our small family vibe which is at the heart and centre of everything we do.
As we are always striving for the highest quality; all of our 200 hour and 300 hour YTT courses are Yoga Alliance certified. This means you will be eligible to become a Yoga Alliance certified teacher, enabling you to teach world-wide and become a Registered Yoga Teacher.
Since our beginnings, Path of Yoga has evolved to become one of the best yoga teacher training schools in the world, offering yoga teacher training programs in Thailand, India, and Peru. This gives you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in a month of yoga, experience a different culture, and be grounded by a supportive group of teachers and peers on the same path.
Upon successful completion of our yoga teacher training program, you will gain your well earned 200 hour or 300 hour RYT certification.
During the course, you will stay in bespoke accommodation with modern comforts and have three delicious vegan meals each day. Our venues are always beautiful retreat centres, nestled in nature, carefully selected to provide a comfortable and safe space for you to develop your practice.
Even through challenging times we have found ways to adapt and grow, whilst staying true to our values and authentic in our teaching. One of the most exciting developments has been the birth of our 200 hour Online YTT in 2021.
This has meant that the Path of Yoga teacher training program has been able to reach a wider community, and given more people the opportunity to learn and practice with us and our incredible teachers. This flexible model allows you to become a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher, whilst working around your own personal schedule and commitments.
…are world class experienced yogis, from a variety of backgrounds, yogic styles and lineages. We are honoured to have this amazing teaching team come together, to create exceptional online and in-person 200 hour and 300 hour yoga teacher training courses.
…is a blend of traditional hatha combined with dynamic vinyasa. We have created our own unique and authentic union of the two, resulting in a strong yet nourishing practice. The essence and heart of our YTT courses is the philosophy and sacred traditions of the East, combined with a science based, modern approach from the West.
Our Yoga Alliance certified training programs will immerse you in hatha, vinyasa, breathwork, meditation, self-development, self-healing, conscious communication and conscious living. This is combined with workshops on anatomy, asana, adjustments and philosophy, giving you all the skills necessary to become a successful yoga teacher.
Join us on a transformational yoga teacher training! We will live and breathe yoga together, develop ourselves physically and mentally, and learn how to teach these transformative techniques to others. At the end of the course you will be able to become a Certified Yoga Alliance 200 or 300 hour teacher. More importantly though, you will have the confidence, knowledge, and skills to evolve into a world class yoga teacher.
A yoga teacher training is the beginning of a new chapter in your life. It is not the final objective or goal, but a beautiful step on the path of yoga.
We’re always happy to help. Please feel free to contact the Path of Yoga team with any questions you may have.
We look forward to practicing with you and welcoming you to the Path of Yoga family!
The Path of Yoga syllabus has been developed and fine-tuned for over a decade. No two of our training programs are ever exactly the same, because we believe that as yoga teachers we are primarily students; we are forever learning and active in our pursuit for seeing reality as it truly is, and this means that our content is constantly evolving and being updated.
In the last few years (particularly since the start of Covid) a huge amount of yoga teacher trainings have been launched, many of which are simply capitalising on a somewhat touristic trend.
Figuring out where to go for the best education can be hard work. Let us detail for you the top 6 reasons that make Path of Yoga unique…
This element leads to a wildly different experience! The amount of access and attention that you get when the whole group lives together for the month is next level:
> Form a strong bond with your teachers
> Benefit from support & a close knit community, which are conducive to diving deep into personal growth
> Breathing space; the ability to chat in the evenings by the fire and ask questions which you might not want to ask in the classroom
> Opportunity to learn by example as we live together as yogis
When the yoga teachers are living with you, it means that they are there for the month fully dedicated to you! This isn’t just a job for them; your journey is their whole reason for being there.
You’ve decided to gift yourself this transformative experience, and it’s only four weeks long, which is a short time to initiate meaningful change.
If you’re serious about your yoga teacher training and you want to get the most out of it, stay focussed, stay committed, and surround yourself with other students who are focussed and committed too.
For a month we will live, breathe, eat and dream yoga. It is an entirely different level of immersion when you and your fellow students stay within the same environment for at least six days a week. In this world you can really go deep, face yourself, begin to address unhelpful patterns and create new positive habits that will last a lifetime!
Give yourself the best chance of making meaningful change; gift yourself this journey.
The amount of personal attention, care and teacher access you will gain on a Path of Yoga teacher training is exceptional
In our experience, the most effective yoga teacher training courses have small group sizes with a strong teacher to student balance
> We have a 1:6 ratio, with two or three lead teachers.
> Previous Path of Yoga graduates return as assistants; they help support and guide you throughout the month
> The group size is often 6-10 students, but occasionally larger during high season. If we have 12+ students there will be three lead teachers; all living with you full time on site
We go above and beyond to ensure you have the care and support you need to succeed in your yoga training and become the best teacher you can be
You have to earn your Yoga Alliance certificate – we don’t just automatically hand them out!
But don’t worry, we won’t leave anyone behind. If you’re truly committed to stepping up to the privilege of yoga teaching, we will work over-time with those who need it to make sure that they get Yoga Alliance certified.
We have regular teaching practices from day one so that together we can assess your strengths and what you need to work on. As yoga teachers we are in service to you, and the good news is that we are always there for you because we are all living on site together.
At Path of Yoga we are serious about education, and have long been known for our unusually high standard of teachers. Every member of our team either trained alongside one of our founders or was trained by them.
Our goal, and the heart of what you will learn with us, is not just giving someone a deep healing experience; but more importantly, to educate that person so that they can continue the healing process on their own. We believe that a teacher’s job is to help the student move from dependence to independence.
Yoga is about realising our own essence nature, and seeing reality as it truly is. It is so much more than leading people through asana and choreographed movements. The Path of Yoga 200 hour and 300 hour yoga teacher training courses will give you the finest foundation to flourish and excel on this beautiful path.
Once you have graduated, we stay connected.
Path of Yoga offers monthly graduate Zoom calls that you can join whenever you choose, and bring any questions that you may have to our teaching team.
This is a great way to stay in touch, and a helpful resource when situations come up on your teaching journey that you’re not sure how to deal with.
There are opportunities to come back and assist on future training courses, which is also a pathway to one day becoming a teacher trainer.

Los Angeles, (Chiang Mai, September, 2019)
Path of Yoga Teacher Training is an amazing experience. I could not recommend this course more strongly. I learned more about Yoga than I could have imagined beforehand, and just as much about myself. The teachers were wonderfully kind, inspiring and professional. The environment was beautiful. I left there feeling exhausted but completely uplifted. If you take this course, you will not be disappointed...
South Africa (Chiang Mai, October 2018)
The Path of Yoga Teacher Training was a life changing experience for me. It helped me see and feel who I really am and who I want to be. The Instructors are amazing people that helped me realise I can also be at peace with myself and life in general. Besides the loads of mind blowing information I gathered, I discovered something much more valuable: the real Monine...

I attended Path of yogas 200 hour TT in October in Chiang Mai. Everything with this course is truly amazing. Staying at Mala Dhara was a blessing. The food was so delicious EVERY meal :) The staff were so nice and friendly. We were blessed having James French, Susan Marrufo, Candy Alderson & Izzie Katya and with their authenticity we couldn’t have asked for better teachers. They meet our needs at all times. From having questions before signing up till today they are still delivering. They made everyone feel seen and got to know everyone of us. The curriculum is as well perfectly planned and the knowledge they are able to share in a month would take others years. All the asana classes was amazing and inspiring as well. I am so glad I did choose Path of yoga. Thank you! 🙏 Namaste..
