What our students have to say...


"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


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!

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 :)"

Classes are a mix of Q&A and physical practice covering all subjects from the 200 and 300-hour yoga teacher training: anatomy, philosophy, Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and teaching methodology.

Enroll Today

Shoulder Mobility

Learn how the shoulder works, as a joint, the muscles involved, and the most common tensions and strains that occur in this area. You will also practice a few asanas that will help relieve shoulder tension, learn how to engage the shoulder in order to protect it and what are ways you can strengthen the shoulder and align it to avoid any future injuries in your practice and your student’s practice.

Enroll Today

Hip Mobility

Learn the fundamental functioning of the hips and the complexity of their available movements. You will discuss why you are feeling limitations in your hip mobility, how you can relieve those limitations, and what you are doing exactly when you are “opening up the hips”. You will also practice some asana that will give you a greater range of motion in the hips and prepare the hips for more complicated movements.

Enroll Today

The Spine and Lower Back

One of the most common areas of injury is the lower back. In this section, you will discuss why, and how you can begin to relieve lower back pain by avoiding certain movements and adding certain movements into your practice. You will also look at the spine and its function in the body. By practicing certain asana, you strengthen the areas around the spine to protect, while also learning how to move with your spine to gain healthy mobility on the spinal chain.

Enroll Today

Ankles, Knees, Wrists, and Elbows

Often we forget about the smaller joints in the body and this leads to their desecration. In order to understand why we are feeling pain in our knees, wrists, ankles, or elbows, we have to understand their function and how they move. By using different examples of asana that may put pressure on these joints, you take an in-depth look at how simple modifications can create a safer way of moving throughout your entire practice and how this can provide longevity to these small joints.

Enroll Today

Bonus: Foot and Bow Anatomy

Learn about how our feet position determines the bow of our legs, which creates the fundamental foundation of all our standing postures. You will define what is healthy and what damaging foot positions, and what to look out for whenever you are setting up a standing pose for yourself or your student.

Enroll Today

The Nervous System

Often overlooked in physical anatomy, the nervous system plays a huge role in how the body moves. Learning about the different characteristics of the nervous system and what the nervous system experiences through single yoga practice can help you understand the ways in which you use the nervous system to create more energy, create more flow and allow you to relax more in your practice. The class will also speak about how to avoid “yoga burnout” and what you can do to create longevity in your practice.

Enroll Today

Functional Yoga Anatomy Practices

You will finish off with a summary of what functionality in yoga anatomy actually is, how to incorporate new practices into daily yoga sessions and classes, the benefits of these new additions, and through mindfulness and awareness, you can practice yoga asana without fear of injury and with a knowing that you benefiting your movements both on and off the mat.
