Best Yoga Teacher Training Location

Koh Samui, Thailand


The third largest island in Thailand, Koh Samui is part of a trio of popular destinations in the Gulf of Thailand: Koh Tao has the best (and famously inexpensive) diving, Koh Phangan is infamous for its full-moon parties, and Koh Samui has the most refined beach-vacation atmosphere. Mid-range to upscale accommodations are the norm here, and the vibe is pure relaxation. Just about any treatment on earth is available; from the ubiquitous Thai massage to yoga retreats to weeklong Detox cleanse regimens.

Getting There

The island’s airport is owned by Bangkok Airways, you could always get there by Ferry. But we recommend taking the flight. Faster and easier!

Things to do

The island has a few attractions—a 40-foot Buddha statue, a few jungle waterfalls, and some provocatively shaped rock formations. Don’t forget the days at the beach and yoga Training.

But just in case you need a break from all that lounging on the beach, there are lots of unusual attractions which make the most of the island’s culture and island charm.

Forget the theme parks and hi-tech attractions. Instead, try the monkey show or the Snake Farm. Or better still hire a car and go sightseeing.

Absolute Sanctuary is literally a yoga dream-come-true. The idea was to build a tropical island destination training center specifically for Hot Yoga training programs. While many other courses are conducted in hotel conference rooms or outdoor platforms, Absolute Yoga recognized early on that the training environment is an extremely important factor to facilitate effective learning.

Absolute Sanctuary is a leading yoga training center. With two huge, beautiful yoga studios and resort’s facilities and staff who understand the needs of yoga teachers, we have created an environment most conducive for teacher trainings, retreats & workshops for both teachers & students. Relax after classes by our state of the art heated swimming pool. Enjoy our gorgeous property as you enhance your practice and teaching skills.

 


The Facilities Include

After a long day practicing and learning, nothing feels better than a healthy meal and a dip in the pool. We’ve discovered that if you eat well, sleep well and are well taken care of, you have a better time—and you learn more too.

The resort is big enough to support the course, but small enough so it feels cozy. The infinity pool is the “hub” of the resort during non-yoga practice times, and there is also a juice bar, a steam room, a full spa, exercise facilities, and a lounge

  • 2 Huge Yoga Studios (60 pax capacity) with sea and jungle views, natural light, mirrored walls, custom heaters and air conditioning.

  • A healthy, yoga-student-friendly restaurant and lounge

  • Infinity Swimming Pool

  • Juice Bar

  • Steam Room

  • Full Spa

  • Exercise/Fitness Center

The Food at the Resort

The food at Absolute Sanctuary is homemade, and during you course, you’ll enjoy three buffet-style meals daily. The food is Thai-influenced, but also includes European and American flavors, Indian and even Moroccan dishes. Common breakfasts include: fresh tropical fruit, homemade porridge, eggs, toast, juices, coffees, teas, and vegetables. Lunches and dinners are more savory with Thai noodles, curries, soups, wraps and stir fries.

Vegetarian options are always available (and clearly marked), and for lactose or gluten sensitive people, Asia is an easy place to eat as milk and wheat are not very common here. Aside from the meals included in your package, you can always order a la carte juices, smoothies and coconuts at the juice bar, or any extra food items from our restaurant’s award-winning menu.
