Go beyond the physical.

This training gives you a physical baseline to teach vinyasa yoga.

Learn to teach the subtle techniques that allow deeper awareness, understanding of our inter-connection + access to our infinite potential.

Why We Created This Training Program

With so much of our attention drawn outward by overstimulation of society, we have lost touch with our inner compass & more than ever we need to reconnect to our purpose here on this earth. This teacher training on the serene island of Koh Phangan provides us the space to restore the balance of our attention with direction towards our intentions.

Providing an all encompassing experience in a supportive environment allows this training to be particularly potent. Through utilizing ancient yogic techniques designed to maximize our pranic life energy, we are able to sift through the layers of our psyche and live a life that we truly feel aligned with.

In this training, you will gain a solid foundation in Hatha Raja Vinyasa yoga. Whether you are taking this training for self discovery or to become a yoga teacher, you widen your lens, deepen your practice and have the ability to share the practice that cultivate more freedom + peace. We use Pranayama, Asana, the power of sound current (mantra) and the sharing of yogic principles for deeper insights on compassion, and many other ancient tools to cultivate a meditative mind, strong flexible body and intuitive Self inquiry. We lovingly impart the gifts + teachings of traditional Hatha Raja Yoga in a setting that is authentic, devotional + supportive.

Now more than ever before WE need to take charge of our lives + be the change. Let us gather together in the tropical rainforest of Thailand, put our duties aside and prioritize a time of deep learning so that way may live a life filled with inspiration.

Fabio Filippi

Fabio’s curiosity drove him to travel extensively to remote regions of the world, to find inspiration from people and cultures, while continuously maturing his inner awareness and enriching him with a multitude of experiences. With his backpack and camera always ready, Fabio seeks to seize the unique moments of life as it happens – cultures, religions, people, and countries – reinforcing his belief that exploring the world is the school of life ‘par excellent’, and traveling the best conduit to learning.

During his stay in Nepal, spending most of his time learning from Buddhist monks, he perceived to have lived there before. His experience in the Himalayas deepened his understanding of samsara, which changed his way of thinking and looking at the world.

A devoted disciple of Sri Dharma Mittra, Fabio’s journey of enrichment continues through Dharma’s spiritual guidance, practicing daily, sharing classes workshops and teacher trainings of Hatha Raja Yoga.
