Common Questions

thailand yoga teacher trainingReview the most Common Questions we receive about our Thailand Yoga Teacher Training. They will likely answer many questions you may have.

 

Thailand ~ Common Questions

Are my Accommodations & Meals included?

Yes, your accommodations & meals are included in your Program Fees.

 

Is laundry available?

Laundry is available ~ this is an additional cost to the student & is not included in fees.

Is there time for other activities during my stay?

We suggest that you extend your stay, or arrive early if you would like to take part in other activities. During Yoga Teacher Training there is no allotted time to experience the local area.

 

Closest Bank Machine?

We suggest that everyone arrive with ample funds upon arrival or withdraw funds at the airport on arrival.  Often times the Bank Machines in local areas are not easily accessible, and there is no guarantee that if you are in urgent need you will be able to get to one quickly. 

Come prepared!

 

Are special dietary needs accommodated?

Yes, with advance notice at the time of registration, we will try to arrange to have appropriate meals prepared for you.

The Chef on-site will advise what they are able to do and will try their best to accommodate requests. We cannot guarantee all requests, but we always try our best.

When applying, please provide detailed information about your specific dietary needs (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free) when registering. Dietary requests around medical issues are always priority.

 

Do I need Vaccinations?

Vaccinations are not mandatory, but some students do opt to have the following vaccinations a minimum of 6 weeks before the training. It is your choice and we have not experienced any issues with contamination in the past. It is best to speak to your doctor about what is best for you.

Hepatitis A
CDC recommends this vaccine because you can get hepatitis A through contaminated food or water, regardless of where you are eating or staying.

Typhoid
You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water. CDC recommends this vaccine for most travelers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas, or if you are an adventurous eater.

 

Is laundry service available?

Yes, there is laundry service available at an additional cost. You can arrange this with the Centre as needed.

 

I have problems sleeping. How will this work with sharing a room?

All students are required to indicate sleeping behaviours or irregular patterns (example: restless sleepers, snoring etc.) when completing the application form.

We do our best to accommodate sleeping behaviours that match or compliment one other in order to ensure you have a good nights sleep, every night. We ask that all students bring along earplugs and eye patches for sleeping.

 

Wi-Fi & Cellular Service?

Wi-Fi access is available & complimentary, but limited to certain areas and the connection tends to be slow – any connection that is utilized is meant solely for quick email checks, and not live streaming or downloads. Skype will not be accessible with these connections.

Cellular Service is available depending on your service provider.

During the training sessions NO electronic devices will be allowed for use.   There is little time to use services outside of the program, so be mindful of what you really need to bring along.  When in classes, we want you to “let go” and be present!  :-)

We ask that you ensure you have a data or calling plan on your phone if you need to be in touch with family and friends.  

 

Do I need my Yoga Mat?

Yes, please bring along your yoga mat.

 

Is this just for people wanting to teach Yoga?

No, absolutely not! Anyone wishing to delve deeper into their practice is welcome to join us. The skills and tools we learn in the program can be applied to many aspects of life… Yoga does not just happen on the mat – it happens in every moment!

 

Why do you charge the Canadian Taxes?

We are a Canadian Company and as such are governed by the tax laws of Canada. Regardless of where the program is, we are required, by law, to charge the Goods & Services Tax as this program is considered a service.

 

Is the water safe to drink?

Absolutely! The water is filtered and safe to consume. Water is available to you all-day and we suggest you bring along a re-usable (NOT GLASS, and preferably not plastic) water bottle to re-fill through-out the day.

Coffee is available to everyone at breakfast. Water and tea is available throughout the balance of the day.

 

Will Coffee be available?

Coffee is served every morning at breakfast. After breakfast, both water and tea are available throughout the day.

 

Are the fees truly all inclusive?

Our Program Fees posted by program include everything listed.

 

Will I need an electrical adaptor?

All the locations of our abroad program (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF EUROPE & ASIA) have the same power as the United States: 110 volt, 60 cycle electricity. Plugs are typically the 2 pronged flat type outside of North America, so American or Canadian travelers will not typically need a converter or adaptor, however many outlets may only be 2 pronged so you may need an adaptor for any 3 pronged items you are bringing, particularly laptops.

If you are uncertain, please check with this Global Listing.

 

Is this the initial training for Yoga Teachers?

Yes, this is first program that all prospective teachers attend. There are opportunities for teachers to continue on with advanced programming thereafter.

When you complete our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program you will be certified to teach Hatha & Vinyasa Classes.  Specific programs such as Yin or Restorative are continuing education programs that you will take after this initial training, if you choose to do so.

 

Is Age an issue?

Yoga knows no age and it is never too late or too early to start. All students must be a minimum of 18 Years of age to take the program, but from there on everyone is welcome in our program.

If it is any inspiration, our oldest graduate (Khatun, December 2012) was in her late 70′s!

 

What if I am new to Yoga?

Everyone is new to Yoga each and everyday. There is no perfection in Yoga, so everyone is welcome at the level they are at. In the program, we all start from the beginning, together!

 

When I leave the program, will I be able to teach public classes?

Absolutely! Rest-assured that our program is not just a cookie-cutter program designed to get students in & out the door as quickly as we can. Our focus is you, the student, and the student becoming the teacher. Your teaching will be a direct reflection of our program and our intention is based on providing you with all the tools you need to succeed. We will have failed our students if we have provided them with anything less.

 

Do I need to be fluent in English?

We welcome students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. Due to the intensity of the program, we require all students be fluent in the English language (reading, writing & speaking).

 

I am Canadian, will I receive a T2202?

No, for this program you will receive an official receipt for all payments received, however you will not receive a T2202 slip at the end of the year. Based on our current tuition structure, we are not required to be registered with PCTIA and therefore do not provide the T2202 slips.

The official receipt we provide can be used for income tax purposes against your income earned. Should you need to apply for a BC Student Loan, PCTIA programs are the only ones that can offer that additional benefit.

 

Policy on alcohol, smoking & drug use?

We ask that all students do their best to refrain from alcohol and drug use during the program. Prescription medication is acceptable assuming it is not being used recreationally.  

Smoking is acceptable, but only in the designated areas.  If you are a smoker, please ensure you list it on the application.  

NOTE:  Some of our Locations are NON-SMOKING Facilities.  

All that being said, when possible, we will provide some local wine during your graduation celebration for students who would like to enjoy a glass!

The smoking area for Spain & Whistler Retreat is located in one of the areas away from the main house.
