Dear Yoga Student,

If you’re looking for a fun and challenging yoga teacher training program that will help you turn your passion for yoga into an exciting career…

… then I’d like to introduce you to the BRYCE YOGA 200hr Yoga Alliance Certification course in Thailand.

Bryce Training is Unlike Any Course Offered

  • Learn to teach a 60, 75 and 90 minute class so you can work in any type of studio
  • Be trained by Briohny & Dice, two of the most sought-after trainers in the world right now
  • Enjoy the sun and sea of beautiful Thailand with a group of like-minded trainees from all over the world
  • Spend time living and breathing yoga

Benefits of the Yoga Teacher Lifestyle

#1 – Inspire Students & Change Lives – There are very few jobs that provide you with the opportunity to impact the lives of so many people on a daily basis. Every time you get up in front of a class of yoga students, you’ll have the opportunity to truly inspire people. That’s an amazing gift and a rare and rewarding job to have.

#2 – Deepen Your Practice – Students come to class looking for guidance, but they also give back to you (as the teacher) an incredible amount of energy and insight. You’ll be amazed how much you learn from teaching yoga. Teaching is a powerful way to deepen your own practice and understanding of yoga.

#3 – Enjoy a Flexible Schedule – Most yoga teachers I know only work three-to-four hours each day, and the rest of their time is theirs to do as they please. If you’re like me, you have tons of other interests in life that you haven’t had time to pursue because you’ve been working full-time, often in a job that you’re not passionate about. After I started teaching yoga, I finally had time to do freelance writing for magazines, play guitar, and I even wrote a novel during my first year as a teacher.

#4 – Earn a Good Salary – Years ago, most yoga teachers hardly earned enough to get by; but today, Absolute Yoga Academy certified yoga teachers are highly specialized and highly valued employees who are paid very well for their work. While yoga teaching is not likely to make you rich, you can live a financially comfortable and exciting life as a teacher. For me, I never imagined the personal and financial freedom I’ve realized today, much more so than I had in my former life.

#5 – Live and Breathe Yoga – Let’s face it, living a healthy lifestyle is not easy. When I started down the path of yoga, all my old friends were living very toxic lifestyles. When I became a yoga teacher, that all changed. My new friends and co-workers loved yoga, and just like me, they were committed to healthy living. There’s nothing more powerful than having a positive peer group, and for many teachers, this often leads to a revolution in your personal health and lifestyle.

#6 – Travel & Work Anywhere in the World – Yoga came from India, spread to the western world, and then looped full circle back to the East. Today, yoga is everywhere, and as a teacher and student, you’ll find it almost impossible not to teach and study all over the globe. And the best part is, yoga teachers travel with a purpose, and ultimately, live with that same purpose as their guiding light!

#7 – Enjoy a Flexible Schedule – A big part of the yoga tradition is discipline, but true discipline can only come from the freedom to choose. Yoga teachers are able to set their own working schedule to accommodate the needs of their personal lives and personal practice. This is both a luxury and a necessity for growth and fulfillment (plus, it just feels great not to have to be anywhere at 09:00 a.m. every Monday morning!).

#8 – Do What You Love – 83% of people worldwide do NOT like their jobs. This is a tragedy! We live in a world where you really can craft your own lifestyle, your own reality; and if yoga is what you love, why not teach and share it with others? Very few people follow their passion in life, but for those that do, the opportunities that await you are amazing!

“I learned a lot”
I had a chance to practice with Briohny and Dice in July and I learned quite a lot from them, particularly with alignment and different principles on how to go up into inversions and balances, which are some of my more challenging postures.

About the Course: “Day in the Life”




This yoga teacher training course is a lot of fun, but it would be a mistake to think of it like a holiday. Your days will be filled with yoga practice, posture clinics, practice teaching, and training drills. There are guest lectures, yoga films, anatomy sessions, and so much more.

Here’s a Sample Daily Schedule (subject to small changes)

Sample Schedule

07:00-09:00 Yoga Practice w. Briohny & Dice
09:15-10:00 Breakfast (buffet style Western & Thai food)
10:15-12:15 Workshop II
12:15-13:15 Lunch (at The Love Kitchen)
15:30-17:00 Yoga Class Practicum, Practice Teaching, Guest Lecture
18:30-19:30 Dinner (at The Love Kitchen)
20:00-21:00 Group Gathering, Questions, Yoga Films & Self Study

Here’s what your day will look like…

Wake up to the beautiful sunrise and sea view before meeting at the yoga studi. On training days, you’ll practice yoga first thing each morning at 7 a.m. The yoga practice sessions are for you to learn and experiences the poses in your body (not just your mind), and it is an essential part of the course.

With 2 course leaders, you get the added benefit of 2 perspectives, 2 different approaches and styles to optimize your teaching knowledge.

After the morning class, you’ll have a lovely breakfast with fresh fruit, homemade toast, tea, and juice. Shortly thereafter, you’ll have a morning workshop held either indoors or outdoors depending on the weather. Here, you’ll learn all the fundamentals: safety in class, how to set up the mats, where to stand, and how to speak.

Lunch is at 1 p.m. The food is healthy and delicious, prepared by our exceptional team of cooks who have now been keeping yoga students healthy and fit for nearly 6 years straight!

After lunch, you’ll have some time to relax by the pool, get a massage, or take a nap before it’s back to work with presentations and hands-on practice sessions that address the more advanced teaching skills you’ll need to be an outstanding teacher.

The training day finishes after dinner with an evening gathering just before 9 p.m.—and then it’s bedtime. Trust me, you’ll be tired. Now that’s a day well spent!

“It Will Help You On So Many Different Levels”
I had a chance to practice with Briohny and Dice in July and I learned quite a lot from them, particularly with alignment. This is my first Vinyasa retreat. I’ve been a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner for about eight years. And I know it’s outside my comfort zone, but I’ve been really happy with how I approach my yoga practice now. The most challenging pose that I learned handstand scorpion. There was a voice inside of me saying: No, I can’t, it’s impossible! But, yes, it is possible. It takes teachers like Dice & Briohny who know what you’re capable of and tell you that, yes, you are ready, you can be ready, it just takes practice and you just have to face it. I would recommend taking this course because it will help you in so many different levels, it will give you a better approach on how to do yoga on a daily basis and how to listen to your body and practice safely.

– Allen (Philippines)

How Do I Know if I’m Ready to Teach?

Each course, there are students who have been practicing for just 6 months and others who have practice d for years. What’s more important than your level of practice is your desire to learn and your passion for yoga. The energy, your inner drive, is what makes all the difference.

Truthfully, you’ll always be learning and growing as a student. That never changes. So the best time to train to teach is when you are most excited to do it—and for many students, that time is now!

What if I Can’t Do All the Poses?

If you’ve seen Briohny & Dice practice, you may feel a little nervous about some of the poses they do. What is important to understand is that they are highly skilled teachers who practice very challenging poses. The best way to get to that level is learn from them! It’s not about where you’re at, but the potential of where you can be. Surround yourself with the best and the best will exude.

We have a health food restaurant called, The Love Kitchen, 2 huge practice rooms, a detox center, a spa, an infinity swimming pool, and really great views throughout the resort.

After a long day, you’ll sleep like a baby. Your room is just up the hill from the studio with air conditioning, hot water, and flat-screen televisions. Accommodations are simple and comfortable, designed for affordability and convenience. We encourage trainees to enjoy Absolute Sanctuary’s swimming pool, steam room, and spa which are all a great way to unwind after practice.

The Yoga Studio

Your primary “home” for practice will be our “Ocean Studio” given its name because you can see the sea while you practice. The studio has great light, even in the early hours of the morning, it has state of the art cooling during the daytime lectures, and a projector for films and presentations.

The Curriculum

Bryce Yoga is dynamic style of practice that combines inversions, arm balances and flying transitions with classic vinyasa yoga postures. The approach is rooted in traditional yoga while simultaneously informed by gymnastics, hand balancing and acrobatics. The Bryce approach to teaching was developed for the modern instructor who teaches in a variety of different setting including: yoga studios, fitness centers, festivals, workshops, on social media, and with private clients. Sequences are adaptable by design so teachers can mold their classes to challenge their students of all levels and abilities. If you’re new to Bryce Yoga, don’t worry. Students come to the course from all different yoga backgrounds, and the most important thing is that you’re excited and eager to learn. While you’ll see photos of the teachers doing advanced asanas, this is a level I course designed for new teachers.

TRAINING MODULES:

  • Bryce Yoga Core Principles: this is the primary focus of the course where you’ll learn sequencing, class planning, assists, flying transitions, leadership, public speaking, and how to use humor in classes.
  • Applied Anatomy & Physiology: even simple yoga poses demand complex and dynamic actions in our bodies, and in this module you’ll learn then names, functions, and potential challenges from an applied anatomy perspective.
  • History & Philosophy of Yoga: as a yoga teacher, it’s important to understand the historical and philosophical context of the practice both for yourself and for your teaching. In this module, you’ll learn about yoga’s Indian origins and how it applies to our modern practices and lives.
  • CPR for Yoga Teachers: if you work with large numbers of students, you need to be prepared for slips-and-falls, heart attacks, and other health issues that can occur. Yoga is extremely safe by design, but teaching yoga is a numbers game. If you teach long enough, you’re bound to have health issues arise in your classes; and as a professional teacher, you need to know how to deal with it appropriately.
  • The Yoga of Trust | Acro & Partner Yoga: working with a partner in yoga is a completely different experience than practicing solo. As a student, you’ll learn to trust and support your fellow trainees; and as a teacher, you’ll learn how to safely lead group beginner classes in partner-based poses.
  • Business Skills for New Teachers: in this module, you’ll learn how to format your resume, how to find jobs, and how to create a career with yoga (yes, it’s possible!).

NEW MODULE! The Yoga of Trust

Acro & Partner Yoga w/Daniel Scott

Bryce Yoga is excited to welcome the mad scientist of AcroYoga, Daniel Scott, who will lead you in partner-based module specifically for teachers. Beginner or beyond, the same rule applies: In order to get good, you’ve got to get better. During this module, your edges will be pushed and polished as you work in pairs for your own benefit—and also for the benefit of your teaching skills.

Bases will fly, flyers will base, and everyone is going to learn to spot high-level awesomeness. You’ll learn to establish foundations of balance and connection with bone-stacking redefined and high-level spotting skills honed. Beginners will be challenged, intermediate and advanced students will also burn with satisfaction. Don’t know what any of this means? Good. You will!

Together, we’ll explore partner movement through gravity, weight distribution, and one-on-one connection. You’ll learn to enter and exit postures smoothly, pursue high-level flow, achieve anatomical balance and proprioceptive acuity. It’s going to be a wild ride…
