Make your vision become reality at Andaman Yoga Academy!
Are you dreaming of turning your passion for yoga into a profession?
Are you a curious yoga practitioner who want to deepen your practice?
Do you want a wide understanding of the yoga methodologies, with space for reflection and creativity, rather than one single approach?
Do you want a broad foundation and/or a deeper dive into one or more aspects of yoga?
Our training is a journey in three steps, where you learn what you need to start working professionally as a Yoga Teacher. You will get comprehensive training in guiding people through asanas and flows, energy methods and breathing practices, in a safe manner. You will learn to adjust sequences and methods to suit different purposes, individuals, and groups. At the same time, you deepen your own understanding of yoga in ways that will lift your personal practice to a new level.

Our lead teachers are senior teachers each with more than 20 years of experience, and each with extensive experience of teacher trainings. Upon completion of the full 200-hour program, you will get the Andaman Yoga Academy Teacher Certificate, and you can register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT200.

Why Multistyle?
We are a contemporary school with a solid foundation in tradition, yet we do not strictly follow one single lineage or one single way of practicing. One might use the methods of yoga to aspire towards self realization and towards living more fully in the present moment, and ultimately, our practice might take us in that direction. Still, there are so many different ways to practice, that will bring on different benefits and suit for different circumstances. Many embark on the path of yoga as a way to improve health and wellbeing, in general as well as more specific. HOW and WHAT we practice will greatly impact the effects we gain!

Approaching yoga as a set of tools and being curious about its many different facets, we might be able to tap into its large spectrum of benefits and support a larger variety of students, than if we choose one approach only. We also believe that different approaches can add much value to each other.
Joining a Multistyle Training, you might find some approach that speak more to you than others, and choose to continue your yoga exploration along that specific path, supported by knowledge and perspectives from the insights gained from the Multistyle perspective.
Program Structure

The training is built up in 3 steps, via online self-studies and 24 days of onsite immersion at our beautiful center in Phuket, Thailand.

200-hour Multistyle Yoga Teacher Training: Hatha & Vinyasa
Everyone aspiring to become a Yoga Teacher with AYA starts with the Online Preparation Courses, where you will learn about the anatomy of the body and nervous system in relation to yoga and the underlying history and philosophy on which yoga is based.

During weeks 1 & 2 of the Residential Training, you will learn the basics of teaching yoga, focusing on tools rather than style or pace, in an informed and safe manner.
Our guiding principles are mindfulness, alignment, and room for individual variations. The aim of the Foundation Program is to gain skills to guide groups through classes at beginner and intermediate levels, including breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques. We will explore the energy approach to yoga based in Hatha as well as introducing the art of creating flow and skillful sequencing.

During week 3, you will advance your skills in Vinyasa Yoga, both as a practitioner and a teacher. The focus will be on energizing and uplifting postures, more tools for vinyasa style sequence building, and breathing in motion. You will sharpen your skills to structure a class, to cue visually, verbally as well as using hands-on, and to maintain rhythm and flow in your teaching. This week will also include an in-depth exploration of chanting mantras as a meditation method, focusing on the vibrations of the voice and pronunciation of Sanskrit words and phrases.
