“This was an amazing experience. I got to know myself more, got to understand myself, know what I like and what I don’t. It helps me to improve myself and love myself”.
“Coming to Orion and doing Yoga and Meditation everyday has changed my life. I’m conscious and I’m more patience. I’m so happy!”
- MAE, Thailand
“It was a deeply transformational experience. We connected with everyone on the course. The teachers, the staff at Orion and I feel like those bonds are going to take me through the next phase of my whole life. I’m so excited for it. I feel more prepared now than I did when I arrived. I am very grateful for how I feel today in comparison to how I felt on day one when I just got here.”
- LOU MARIE, UK
“What I take home from this experience is that I’m everything and nothing at the same time. In the process I lost and found myself at the same time.
This community has provided so much support, love and safe space that I can grow and be the best version of myself. If people have fear when they come here, I encourage them to invite, allow and acknowledge that feeling, because probably that fear has a message for you, could be your north star to guide you to your right path”.
“The Orion experience for me was life changing, so profound. It was like a rebirth. I don’t have any regrets whatsoever. I don’t know how to express that feeling, but it was LIFE CHANGING”.
- SARAH, Philippines
"My biggest lesson was discipline. In the past month I started to wake up very early, and eat healthy. I worked on my physical body and also emotional body. The location itself is very special and has a great community. You always can find support here where you need it.
I gained confidence experience and friendship."
- Nabi Thailand
"I came to Orion for a yoga teacher training, and one of the best parts of the program is the food! We had a buffet of breakfast and dinner included in the program, except on our day off. Amazing, amazing vegan food and friendly restaurant chef and servers.
Everyone was always so kind and would accommodate you in any way. It was easy to maintain a vegan diet for the whole month I was there. Overall I truly recommend Orion for yoga teacher training, especially if you want to learn about your true self and are open to new experiences. It was a truly magical time and I'm so glad about my experience and all the lovely people I met there."
- Andrea, UK
"Orion offers the beauty we seek. The setting is beyond magnificent. With the calm bay and stunning sunsets right in front of you, you sip on that fresh, juicy, sweet coconut that was prepared for you and really have to pinch yourself. Add into that image swinging on a coconut tree swing or hammock and you're really floating.
For those researching where to take their yoga teacher training course or any other course that Orion has to offer - just book it and feel the place for yourself to see what all the raving reviews are about. The people, the energy, the pure goodness Orion offers is just invigorating. Visit Orion and feel for yourself guys."
- Amanda, Sweden
"I recently had the opportunity to do a teacher training course at Orion in Koh Phangan, Thailand. I started the course with not much knowledge or experience, and I have to say that it changed my life. The instructor, Coco, was amazing. She took you in like a mother would and was very precise and cared so much that all her students knew all the asanas perfectly.
Astrid, who taught us anatomy and Daliah who runs the school are both amazing people & I am thankful every day that I went through this life-changing experience. Thank you!”
- Elad, Israel
"The welcoming and loving energy is felt as soon as you arrive. You quickly become part of the family which is why so many people return after their training has finished. The staff are the friendliest and helpful I have ever encountered, their food is honestly the best I have ever eaten and Daliah, the owner, personally looks after you.
Our Teachers were experienced, wise and patient. I felt safe and comfortable at all times and learned so much in such a short time. We will always remember this time. And we will always return.”
- Mark McLinden, Former Professional Rugby Player, Australia
"Absolutely amazing place. The best food I have had so far and the most beautiful sunsets.
The overall vibe is great, so loving and authentic. I highly recommend it."
