500Hr yoga Teacher Trainings


Our advanced yoga teacher trainings are for those teachers interested in leading classes based on functional wellness in mind and body. We place a strong emphasis on modern day scientific findings and applications with mindfulness, anatomy, and bio individuality. You will learn to apply the principles of Embodied Posture Methodology as outlined in Stacy's new book, Embodied Posture, to your practice and teaching. Each day you will take a class aimed at refining your personal physical practice and deepening your understanding of posture variation. Mindfulness meditation, breath practice, self-inquiry, and journaling will be included each day. Each module contains a specific anatomical focus in which we will study structure, function and applications in sequencing. Common injuries and their implications with yoga will be included.


Module 3: Expanding Possibility

The upper limb & cervical spine

Contemplating the 8 Limbs of yoga: Ancient Wisdom viewed through a Contemporary Lens

Bali, Indonesia

June 8 Check-in / June 18 check-out

Bali is full of amazing culture and full of exciting places to explore. We will have extra time throughout training to take short excursions to waterfalls, snorkeling, market shopping, volcano hiking or whatever you choose. The people of Bali are extremely warm and welcoming to everyone.

Imagine waking up to the sounds of the local temple prayers and ocean waves rolling onto the beach just a few hundred feet away. We will spend time each morning soaking up the essence of Bali with a fresh cup of tea or coffee. Quiet time with meditation that leads us all into a strong asana yoga practice. The rest of the day will be filled with Asana study, practice teaching and discussion.

Location:  Koh Samui, Thailand

The location of this training lies on the south coast of Koh Samui, a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand that still has long stretches of pristine beaches and unspoiled land. Koh Samui is only about an hour away from Bangkok by air, an hour plus from Singapore, and three hours from Hong Kong. The island has the allure of a remote island paradise but with the accessibility of the region’s most popular destinations. Situated on Laem Sor beach, this setting is surrounded by towering coconut trees in a quiet, spacious area, with incredible sunrises and sunsets that play with the colors of the water, sand and tropical fauna. Only a few hundred meters away is the well-known Laem Sor Pagoda, which houses the remains of Leung Poo Daeng, a realized monk. The only other structures in the area are villas privately owned. As such, our beach is private and virtually undisturbed, creating a beautiful, peaceful setting for you to enjoy your Thailand yoga teacher training with Yoga Project™.

Your rooms are set back from the main retreat, perfect for quiet contemplation and relaxation. The eco-friendly buildings make use of cross ventilation, natural lighting, rainwater harvesting, and solar power. Rooms are designed for couples and singles, as well as loft-style accommodations that are ideal for two people sharing.

Accommodation choices:

  • Private Room with Bath for singles or couple sharing a bed.

  • Semi-Private Room with Shared bath (between two rooms) designed for singles.

  • Two Bedroom Loft with Bath for two people to share accommodations. YP will assign rooms.

Regardless of which room you stay in, the yoga shala, restaurant and lounge, swimming pool, and beach are only one minute away. You'll make a life long friends and memories for a lifetime at this training.
