Koh Phangan, Thailand
With a legacy of over 14 years, the esteemed Ananada Yoga and Detox center in Thailand has garnered recognition as one of the finest in the field. Their detox programs seamlessly blend scientific principles with holistic therapies, presenting you with a safe, effective, and harmonizing atmosphere.
This approach is carried seamlessly through to their yoga teacher training programs. Like any respectable yoga training school, Ananda Yoga offers comprehensive and time-tested courses spanning over 200 and 300 hours, designed to equip every trainee with the skills to teach internationally. Presented by Yama Yoga Studios, all programs hold the esteemed approval of Yoga Alliance and are led by experienced senior teachers.
Valerie Jeremijenko, an Australian native and holder of a PhD and ERYT 500 certification, serves as the owner and director of all yoga-related aspects at Ananda Yoga and Detox. With over three decades of teaching and training experience, Valerie ensures the utmost excellence in all of their yoga programs.
Leading the detox programs and supporting Valerie in the day-to-day running of Ananda Yoga and Detox center, Vasiliki Terzi, affectionately known as Villy, has expertly guided nearly 8,000 guests through their transformative journeys. Additionally, Villy is a dedicated practitioner of Ashtanga yoga and can be found leading the morning Mysore classes at the center, creating a space for growth and exploration.
The trainings take place at the Ananda “base” in Koh Phangan, Thailand. However, they also provide additional YTT opportunities in other countries as guest facilitators. Overall, attending one of their trainings is a unique and precious experience, with a certification and career opportunity as a bonus.
