Extended Practicum

At One Yoga, we believe in providing our students with the necessary tools and opportunities to become confident and competent yoga teachers. That’s why we offer our newly graduated students the unique opportunity to continue their practical training by teaching free yoga classes to the local community. 

This hands-on experience allows you to put into practice what you have learned in the training and to gain valuable teaching experience in a supportive and familiar environment. Furthermore, the extended practicum provides you with the opportunity to give back to the community and to share your passion for yoga with others.

In addition, you can join our volunteer program for graduates and teach yoga to vulnerable children at Baan San Fan orphanage, while practicing Karma Yoga – selfless service for the benefit of others. Read more about The Future Project.

What Makes This Training Special?

What sets our yoga teacher training program apart is our emphasis on teaching yoga practices that extend beyond physical asanas.

While you will receive comprehensive instruction on postural yoga, we also offer in-depth education on yogic philosophy, breathing techniques, and meditation practices, providing a level of understanding that surpasses most other training programs. Our unique meditation program, when combined with yoga, will significantly enhance the benefits of the practice.

By the end of the course, you will not only be equipped to teach physical yoga classes, but you will also have a deep understanding of the spiritual and philosophical dimensions, enabling you to guide your students towards a more meaningful and fulfilling practice.
