The Sentido Graceland Khao Lak Resort and Spa will host the course by Indian yoga master, Bikram Choudury between September 14 to November 16. Applications are now open for the course, which is expected to attract about 400 participants from around the world.

The Bikram Yoga Teacher Training Course is described as an “exciting, hard-working, intensive, effective, amusing and glamorous” programme. Participants spend nine weeks immersed in the study of Bikram Yoga with Masters Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury and their staff of senior teachers.

The course, leading to a certificate of completion, will introduce participants to the basic knowledge needed to begin teaching this powerful, healing yoga. It covers asanas, anatomy, therapeutic applications and health benefits, nutrition, philosophy of Yoga and the Bikram Yoga dialogue.

“In addition to studying yoga, participants also will have a chance to visit attractions in Phang Nga province and other surrounding provinces the south.
