Location

ULU Yoga seriously has one of the best locations in Thailand. You are just 5 min walk from three incredible beaches. Bounty Resort has its own small private beach, which is totally undeveloped and natural. To the left is serene Secret Beach which has great swimming, shady trees and just one resort, which is incredibly magical at night. To the right is Haad Yao beach, which is long and wide with many resorts, live music, dance and activities.

Koh Phangan, Thailand

Generally speaking, Koh Phangan is a magical bohemian island with endless pristine beaches, lush green nature, mountains and waterfalls. Unlike Koh Samui or Phuket, there are no big crowds, traffic, pollution, shopping malls or airports, but it still has modern conveniences and everything you need. Koh Phangan is famous for crazy parties, but that is in the far south. ULU Yoga is in the north west Sri Thanu / Haad Yao region where all the other yoga and wellness centers are located. Ask anyone who has traveled here, it's an absolute gem.

Accommodation

You can stay onsite at the serene Bounty Resort, or just pay tuition and stay next door at Haad Son Resort or Hi Life Bungalows, which have more upscale accommodation. Bounty Resort has Deluxe sea view rooms with large balconies, tv and fridge. Family rooms are similar plus have two beds. Wooden bungalows (fan) have comfy hammocks with great ocean views. Standard rooms (fan) and Superior rooms (a.c.) are more modern with partial sea view balconies. Shared rooms (a.c.) are similar and have two beds. All rooms have wi-fi, private bathroom, towels, toiletries and tea kettle. The resort also has a great restaurant, swimming pool, laundry service, ATM, motorbike rental, taxi, travel and tour assistance.

Yoga Shala

The exact location and conditions of the ULU Yoga shala are also ideal for several reasons. It is a 5min walk uphill from the beach, has tinted sliding glass windows, a solar reflective roof and many fans. You don’t want a shala right on the beach, it’s too hot and the weather can be very intense and unpredictable. Shalas with only screens or plastic roll drops do not provide full coverage and are always breaking down. Open air shalas are the worst and full of mosquitos. You don’t want a shala too far from the beach either, the roads are very dangerous even for experienced riders and taxis can be hard to find and expensive.

Diet & Nutrition

Packages with accommodation include a delicious vegan smoothie bowl for breakfast with fresh tropical fruit, coconut yogurt and mixed toppings. For lunch and dinner (average $6 per meal) you can eat at the resort or go out with the ULU Yoga team who will encourage, but not force you to make healthy choices 😉 There are many wonderful local markets, beach bars and boutique cafes to explore including: Loco’s Pizza, Pura Vida, Bubba’s Roastery, Big Mountain, Taboon, Sea Tara, Karma Cafe, Eat Co., Sati Pot, Alcove and Chana Masala

Dance

Each week you can attend an amazing ecstatic dance, a highly liberating experience, which encourages you to bloom with uninhibited self-expression. Combine this with yoga and your body will experience a total rebirth of dynamic movement and liberation.

Sauna & Ice Bath

This course includes 1 free entry to the mystical night sauna. Purge your body of toxins in the hot sauna then rejuvenate with an ice bath Boost your immune system, reduce inflammation and relieve stress. Chant kirtan around the bonfire gazing up at the stars and enjoy mystical sound healing.

"The most breathtaking and life-changing experience of my life! I started with the 50-Hr aerial teacher training, but soon the wonderful people of this yoga teacher training program healed my soul and I couldn’t believe it but the magic was operating. I had to extend my plans in order to enroll and complete the full 200-Hr TTC, and that was the best decision! Thank you endlessly for creating this opportunity for us! ULU Yoga isn’t only gonna give you the ability to become a multi style yoga teacher but they hand you the key to love in abundance! They’ve changed me and the way I perceive life and its surroundings! No money in the world can pay off what ULU Yoga and they’re wonderful teachers have given to me!"

"Highly recommended! Nothing but good things to say about this whole experience. I booked the ULU Yoga TTC and 5 stars all the way!! I will also probably enroll in the 100hr Online Ashtanga course for next month. :)"

Thomas Mecha

Singapore

Best decision I ever made. I chose to do my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ulu Yoga because of the variety of styles they offer. Learning aerial & acro (alongside Hatha, vinyasa and yin) was so much fun! Aerial is my absolute favorite, I even ended up adding on my 50 hour Aerial Training with Ulu! I gained all the confidence and skills needed to successfully teach classes! I learned from knowledgeable teachers & I made friends with people from all over the world! I highly recommend Ulu!

Kaiti Brauer

I had the best experience with Ulu! The setting was on an island in Thailand- the resort was right next to the beach, and the weather was beautiful!!! There was a breakfast buffet everyday, which was amazing. And the beach (Haad Yao) was so picturesque. There were several instructors, and they were all amazing and knowledgeable! I loved how they put an emphasis on safety and how the poses are for each person's body. The course was a lot more intense than I had anticipated- but you learn a lot, and you get a lot of teaching practice. I took the 200hr multi-style course, so I had the pleasure of experiencing SUP yoga (on a paddle-board), acroyoga, aerial yoga, yin, hatha, vinyasa, and even a taste of ashtanga.

I've just completed my 200 hours and had an absolutely amazing experience. The amount of care and support I received with my colleagues was beyond my expectations. Edward was extremely accommodating, taking care in such a productive way to make sure I had a safe and positive experience. He helped me find my footing in Koh Phangan and offered recommendations as well as an amazing introduction to aerial yoga. Shashi gave 110% of herself to every session even after an unfortunate injury (non-yoga related). She seamlessly stitched things together for us with additional workshops and opportunities to keep the focus on growth and development which was absolutely well done and inspiring.

"Omg... the most caring yoga instructors!!! Everything was positive. I love the teachers, they are very experienced and encouraging. I love the classroom we were assigned to. I learned a lot in a short period of time. It was a good balance between learning and fun. I love the food. Ulu yoga is so knowledgable, experiences, loving and creative!! I used to think that good reviews are lies, but now I am writing one. lol :)"
