If you could step onto the path to becoming a certified yoga teacher today

(deepening your own practice and transforming lives along the way)…

…would you take that step?

Or, would you hear whispers of these self-limiting beliefs...

I’m not “good enough” to become a Yoga teacher.

Everyone will be more advanced than me.

I’m not ready yet… maybe next year.

Can I really learn to do this in four weeks?

The Path of Yoga Teacher Training

is a transformational 200-hour program for all levels of yogis designed to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to share the joy of yoga with others as a certified yoga teacher.

Where East Meets West

We all share a love for a strong yet nourishing dynamic practice married with traditional Hatha. The practically applied philosophy and sacred traditions of the East, combined with a science-based, modern approach make the essence and heart of this immersion course.

They made everyone feel seen and got to know everyone of us.

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.


The curriculum is as well perfectly planned and the knowledge they are able to share in the training would take others years. All the asana classes were amazing and inspiring as well. I am so glad I chose Path of Yoga School.”

Our Destinations


Maladhara Resort, Chiang Mai

Mala Dhara Eco Resort is 30 minutes from Chiang Mai airport, in Northern Thailand.

It is a true gem of a resort, blending luxurious living with the feeling of living in nature. We’re excited to have secured it for our training and be able to share its gifts with you.

We have the wonderful choice of either outdoor or indoor Yoga Shala, both are bright, open, and circular and provide the perfect environment for deepening your practic


Rainforest House,Rishikesh

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, on the banks of the Holy River Ganges. Rishikesh is thought by many to be the spiritual home of Yoga and it is one of the most beautiful and fascinating places to visit and practice in.
Our home in Rishikesh is in a peaceful area, a few kilometres outside of town. 

It’s a large, beautiful villa in nature with plenty of hammocks and rest-areas to relax in, meditate, or watch the monkeys and birds. It’s right on the River Ganges, so you can jump straight in, and there’s also a stream and small waterfall that run straight through the property where you can bathe too.


Munay Sonqo Retreat & Yoga Center, The Sacred Valley

Munay Sonqo Retreat and Yoga Center, nestled in the Sacred Valley of Peru will be our home for this magical training. Explore the local ruins, mountain region and the breathtaking Machu Picchu during your stay.

It provides an epic setting to all who are aspiring to spiritual transformation, personal development, and connection to the natural world.

Who This Program Is For

You love yoga and the practice… and are ready to deepen your skills and understanding.

You want to live a more healthy, balanced life… and perceive that there is a deep potential within you, which has yet to be unlocked. 

You love learning about the different styles and benefits of yoga practices.

You have a sense of the healing benefits of Yoga, and want to dedicate yourself to helping others to find it too.

You long for personalised feedback and a community of supporters.

You’re looking to create a new income stream doing something you already love (and changing lives along the way).

You do not need to be a yoga expert before registering. What we do ask is that you have been practicing for at least 6 months so that you are familiar with the basic concepts and postures. You are also right at home if you are more advanced at yoga or have already taken a training. Much of what you find here fills in the gaps as it is comprehensive and designed to provide you with what you need to know to become an extraordinary teacher.

An indicator of quality is that we often have students who are already Yoga teachers come to retrain with us, because of the high standard of education on offer. 

We have students from all over the world but please note that all instruction is given in English.

We share a love for a strong and nourishing dynamic Vinyasa practice married with traditional Hatha. In terms of Hatha/Vinyasa breakdown; it is roughly 50/50 split. Some classes during the course may be more Hatha focused and some more Vinyasa, but overall it’s balanced.

Our aspiration is to dive as deeply as we can into both and encourage you to teach what makes you come alive in your own practice, so some may teach more of one or the other…or balanced! By the end of the course you will have taught several classes to your fellow students… This will leave you feeling confident and ready to teach to friends, family, Yoga studios and future students!

Yes! We have graduates teaching all over the globe!

Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a Yoga Alliance, internationally recognised 200hr certificate. This is all you need to get the appropriate insurance to start teaching in Yoga studios worldwide.

We usually have around 12-18 people on each course. Varying ages and varying nationalities are always present, it really is a magical way to create a global family with connections that will last a lifetime! 

We always have a minimum of 2 lead teachers, an anatomy teacher and 1 or 2 assistants. This is an unusually good teacher to student ratio, so you can expect plenty of personal care and attention.

Yes we do, all of our resorts are well versed in dealing with any allergy requirements you may have. Gluten free, dairy free etc can also easily be accommodated, just let us know. Included in the course fees are 3 delicious vegetarian meals per day, served in a buffet style; more than enough to leave you feeling happy and healthy for the course duration.

The price includes absolutely everything you need for the duration of the course, apart from your travel costs and Yoga mat… For everything else you will be fully and lovingly catered for.

Apart from travel costs, it really depends on how much you like to shop and the gifts you wish to bring home!  Thailand, Peru and India are very well priced, so if you brought an extra $200 you would be well prepared for any extra drinking coconuts you wanted at the resort plus a few nice gifts too. There will always be free herbal teas and water available.

The course begins at 4pm with an opening circle, followed by our first group meal. We recommend that you arrive a few hours before this (around 12-1pm), so you can unpack and settle into your room. Some students do like to arrive into the country a day or so before, and we can organise a night in the resort beforehand where possible, although many choose to stay in the surrounding area. We will provide recommendations of hotels/hostels nearby in our orientation pack, which is sent upon successful application.

The course ends around 1pm.  That morning we will have our final Yoga practice followed by a closing circle where certificates are presented…. although it may go a little later as hugs and goodbyes can often be hard to say no to! The latest we will depart the resort  is 2pm (if you do wish to stay an extra night this can be arranged where possible).

We recognise the challenges that come with the current pandemic.  So should covid related travel restrictions prevent you from attending,  our course fees and deposit are 100% refundable til 7 days before the course and 100% transferable til the day the course starts.


*Please note that refunds will be paid by Bank transfer and that you will be liable for any transfer fees.

You can hold your spot on a training by paying a $500 deposit.  

The balance can then be paid 1 month before the training start date. 


*We have a BIPOC Scholarship program available. If you are struggling to afford our fees for any other reason, please get in touch at

This is your sign from the divine…
NOW is the right time to get certified.

The Path of Yoga Training is a unique experience.

The quality of our teaching team is what makes us stand out from the crowd. All of our Teachers have been handpicked for their level of experience, aspiration and dedication to Yoga. None of our teachers are recent graduates (which is the case with many other schools)

Supporting you to find your voice and your path is our priority. As Teachers we belive that it is our job to be in service to our students and as Yogis we practice for the benefit of all beings. 

When you join the Path of Yoga, you not only receive the technical training you need for certification

But you open the doorway to a whole new life of…

Learning to love yourself and the world around you

Realising your connection to nature and the interconnectivity of all things

Leading students through a practice that quiets the mind and opens the heart

We believe in our world-class teachers, our incredible locations and the power we have to follow our dreams and change the lives of those around us.

Are You Ready?

...and take the next step in your journey

A truly transformational experience. For me it was so much more than just learning how to teach asana. I learned so much about myself which I believe will help me move forward in so many areas of my life.

Thank you to James for creating such a beautiful 200hr TTC and to Susan, Candy and Izzy who brought some extra sparkle to the course. I have gained new knowledge, experience and friends for life!”
