5 Elements Yoga Teacher Training

  • Chiang Mai, Thailand

About This Event

This unique training combines an in-depth anatomical and biomechanical understanding of yoga taught within the holistic framework of the 5 Element system of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda and underpinned by the philosophy of Classical Yoga and Tantra. At the end of the course, students leave having learned essential tools and life skills to enhance their health and through which they can inspire others.

Taught in a traditional ashram style, Swara Yoga School places a strong emphasis on interactive and experiential learning. The training encourages each student to listen deeply to their own process and undertake specific practices for self-inquiry held within the group experience.

"I’m just really happy to have experience the true essence of what yoga is this teacher training and I’m so looking forward to learn more about this way of living and exploring this ancient spiritual path. Working with the 5 Elements combined with yoga practice and nutrition was a wonderful experience for me, it gave my yoga practice a deeper spiritual context as I was deepening my connection with Nature!"

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I go on retreat to remember who I really am. And I remember that I am alive, Deryk

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
