Are you passionate about yoga and ready to take your practice to the next level? Are you ready to take the next step to becoming a certified yoga teacher so that you can fulfill your dream by doing what you love for a living?
Join Asia Pacific Yoga on our 30 August - 17 September 2019 200 Hour Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in the beautiful island of Moorea, Tahiti, French Polynesia.
We create a very down to earth, neuro-physiological yoga teacher training with respect to the vast unknown that constantly draws us deeper and deeper into MAGIC.
This Yoga Alliance accredited and internationally recognised Yoga Teacher Training is designed not only for aspiring teachers, but for those who are looking to immerse themselves in a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual transformation through yoga and meditation.
Our YTT will be held in Tahiti Beach House, a beautiful and spacious wooden villa on stilts, nestled in tropical gardens on the edge of Moorea’s stunning blue lagoon. Close to nature right on the beach, this location is perfect for centering and immersing in yoga practices.
Get ready for a transformational experience!
The course was delivered in a very practical thorough way. Steve and Joleen are both extremely good facilitators, they have a calm relaxing manner coupled with a lovely sense of humour.
I came away strongly feeling that yoga is a practice for 'all' and that there are many options for teaching people of all levels.
The venue at Piha was perfect, being able to walk down to the beautiful beach or up to the stunning waterfall was a real highlight. 10 out of 10 from me.

Moorea is the sister island of Tahiti and one of the most scenically striking islands in French Polynesia. The island is roughly shaped like a heart from overhead; and in the theme of love and romance, Mo’orea is one of the top honeymoon destinations in Tahiti, second only to Bora Bora.
The quiet waters of Mo’orea’s lagoon and the annual trade winds from April to October allow for a variety of activities, from outrigger canoeing to paddle boarding, kite boarding, water skiing and surfing.
Moorea is a haven for divers who instantly fall in love with the varied coral reef eco-system and the colorful mix of marine life. On the mountain side, the sharp landscape is watched over by eight summits featuring a magnificent ancient volcanic crater which has now become a lush valley. It is the perfect area for hiking, horseback riding, quad biking or exploring on a four-wheeler.
The island is a true reflection of the laid back Tahitian lifestyle and the warm, welcoming character of French Polynesia and its people.
This Yoga Alliance accredited and internationally recognised 200 Hour Hatha Vinyasa Tahiti Yoga Teacher Training is designed not only for aspiring teachers, but for those who are looking to immerse themselves in a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual transformation through yoga and meditation.

We will cover all aspects required for Yoga Alliance Certification in a relaxed environment, a small group of no more than 9 people.You will get to participate in hands on workshops on arm balances, inversions, backbends, adjustments, partner yoga, restorative yoga and more. We will also have a few restorative and yin classes throughout the training as well. All this will give you a broad base to teach from.
This training will include 19 days accommodation, course fees, manuals, delicious catered vegan meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and a bonus treat - one complementary lomilomi therapeutic massage.
The first week will be an immersion into Hatha asanas, pranayama, kriyas, yoga anatomy, philosophy and an introduction to basic sequencing. The second week is about experiencing Vinyasa flows based around Surya Namaskar (Sun Salute) A and B and expanding creative sequencing.

You will be staying in Tahiti Beach House, a beautiful and spacious wooden villa on stilts, nestled in tropical gardens on the edge of Moorea’s stunning blue lagoon.
The house can accommodate up to 12 people with modern kitchen and laundry amenities. Wifi and cable TV are available but we suggest that you enjoy the pristine turquoise and marine blue waters in front of the villa instead. We will also have access to a canoe, kayak and snorkelling equipment. You might even encounter stingrays, leopard rays, sharks and marine turtles!
Eating out in Tahiti can be quite pricey so all your meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be included in this Tahiti Yoga Teacher Training. Since everyone will be on a transformational journey, we have decided to offer purely vegan and raw food meals as part of your transformational challenge.
People adopt a vegan lifestyle for many reasons. The main ones are to prevent animal suffering, to lessen the impact on the environment and to be healthier (plus, you will feel awesome!).
No matter what the reason, if you are not already vegan, take this as a personal challenge! But don't worry, there are plenty of restaurants and a supermarket nearby if you would like some variety.
Your meals will be lovingly prepared by our local chef Nathalie Lorenzo, a French woman who has made Mo’orea her home. Nathalie is very passionate about creating vegan cuisines that are not only delicious, but incredibly healthy for you.
Nathalie will be more than happy to share with you her knowledge of how to bring peace onto your plate and love into your life. She goes by her motto - 100% hand made, 100% healthy, 100% balanced diet, 100% happiness, 100% good for mother earth, 100% respect for yourself.
Here at Asia Pacific Yoga, we strive to create immersive, expansive and transformational experiences that you will not forget. We believe in keeping our groups small, a maximum of 9 students, so that each student gets the maximum benefit out of the training and the proper attention he or she deserves.
Yoga practises are about feeling better, no matter where that begins for you.It is not about what it looks like. It is about what it feels like. Our trainings are about exploration, not perfection.We are passionate about our yoga and love to share these simple but profound practices.
We go by the principles of every body is DIFFERENT, and individual attention is vital when you begin learning yoga postures and yoga sequences. We understand that there is no ‘One Size Fits All’ when it comes to yoga and that every student has different needs when learning how to teach yoga.
