Thailand yoga teacher training temple visit idea

Things to do in Chiang Mai when you travel to the Tribe Thailand Yoga Teacher Training

Thinking of signing up for the Thailand Yoga Teacher Training?

What else can you do whilst you are there?

Thailand, the country of Temples, massages, great food, elephants and of course the smile. In the north of Thailand 25k away from Chiang Mai is where you can do find yourself on the Tribe 200hr Thailand Yoga Teacher Training.

Get your summer clothes out of your closet if you are going to do your Yoga teacher training in Thailand. The weather will be great during this time of year with an average of 32 degrees. And you might as well get a nice summer glow while you’re there, right?

If you are deciding to fly out to the Thailand yoga teacher training., once there you might want to consider staying a bit longer to see all the beauty that Thailand has to offer besides yoga.

The North of Thailand has a lot to offer! Let me give you just a few ideas on what you can do during your ……

Head to Chiang Mai on you days off during your Thailand yoga teacher training

Chiang Mai, the biggest city in the north of Thailand has a lot to offer. As a tourist in Thailand it is very easy to arrange all different kind of trips. So just pop in to one of the many hostels they have in Chiang Mai and the friendly people are more than willing to help you out.

Temples; Due to Buddhism which is the main religion in Thailand you can find a lot of temples basically everywhere in Thailand as so in Chiang Mai. Wat Prathat Doi Suthep is in my opinion one of the most impressive Temples you can find in Chiang Mai. Located on top of a mountain with a stunning view over the City you can have a look at this gold surrounded filled with Buddha images temple. Just the sort of soul inspiring visit which will support your spiritual journey on the Tribe Thailand yoga teacher training.

Elephant sanctuary; Elephant Nature Park has a good reputation when it comes to taking care of its animals. They have rescued and saved elephants (from elephant rides among other things) and giving them now a safe place to stay. This is a great way to help and support the elephants without contributing to these horrible elephant rides. You can visit them or any other sanctuary just on your day off from your Thailand yoga teacher training or if you have some extra spare time you can even volunteer for a couple of weeks.

Market; In Chiang Mai on every Sunday you’ll find probably the biggest market you are ever going to see in your whole life. You can walk around for hours and still see different things everywhere you look. From clothes to art, from crazy insects to handmade notebooks all of it for a very low price. But don’t let that hold you back on practicing your negotiating skills to lower the prices even a bit more. The lovely Thai people actually enjoy it and expect you to do so. Its definitely something that many of the Trainees on the Thailand yoga teacher training love to go to.

Monk Chats. If you want to want some more depth after/during your yoga teacher training and something other than the usual tourist activities this is something I can highly recommend! In Chiang Mai you have several “Monk Chat programs” which allows you to have an informal chat with a school aged Monk, usually accompanied by its teacher. So anything you’ve always wanted to know about Buddhism or what it’s like being a monk you can just ask them. At Wat Chedi Luang or Doi Suthep Temple they hold specific “Chat hours” during the day when you can chat away….

And these are just a few suggestions on what you can do during/after/before your yoga teacher training…. So let the country welcome you with their warm smile they are so well known for when you choose to attend a Thailand yoga teacher training with Tribe!

Graduate Blog #3  The Journey continues after the TTC in Thailand

Over the past week I have been craving that abundance of healing energy that I felt on the yoga teacher training Thailand course. The ‘healing’ came from the sun, the air, the community, the people, the peaceful jungle, the food and probably most of all the love and support from other students and teachers on the course. Actually whilst typing this I have a vivid memory of the last healing chant circle we did together. Wow, what a beautiful moment that was! Take me back please! I am still grateful I have the whole experience of the month to remember and think about when I am feeling depleted.

How do you choose the right yoga teacher training

The past few years has seen a definite explosion of yoga teacher training courses in the global yoga community. The output of yoga teachers is incredible, growing more and more every year. Some schools of yoga have been running trainings for many years and are able to offer an integral and professional program of study. There are also many schools popping into existence that have substandard teachers and superficial teachings making it a minefield trying to sieve through all the countless websites that currently offer trainings. The lucky ones will find a good training via personal recommendation but in many cases people make their decisions based solely on what they have read on the internet, the schools website, testimonials etc.

Graduate Blog #2 My First Class Teaching The Public after the Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand

I was fairly nervous about teaching a beginners class at a gym for the first time and had mixed feelings on how it may or may not go. Last week, I crashed on my cycle for the second time in 2 weeks! Grazed and bruised in the most awful and inconvenient places, which has made self-practise difficult and generally my health a bit weak, so after teaching my class today, I am impressed with my strength, determination and confidence throughout.

I was lucky enough to visit old friends last week who were more than willing to let me teach them in the garden! I am naturally a nervous person, today for my class I knew I had to focus on myself and found it a little difficult. Meditation was proving to clash with my high energy mode, so I then lay down in Savasana with gentle music, focusing on my breath and feelings. After the short relaxation I speed off to the gym on my bike.

Back Home And Time To Reflect On The Level 1 Training

It has been a little over a month since I returned to England from the Yoga Teacher Training with Tribe in Thailand. The transformation in myself, in my life, in my hopes, in my future and in my heart, has been beyond any of my conceivable expectations.

Initially entering the course as a beginner my main reason for attending the training was because I wanted to learn how to live yoga and needed to get in touch with myself . From the first day it was a real blessing, the resort was outstanding with such incredible energy and peace, meeting the teachers and students I knew I was doing something special.
