Orion Healing Centre is based in Koh Phangan, Thailand. We pride ourselves on giving you the full Thailand experience if you choose to come and do your Yoga Teacher Training with us. The island of Koh Phangan has a rich history with Yoga and spiritualism, the conscious community on the island is one of the largest in the world, rivalling Bali and Goa.
Let us start where most great things do, the food! At Orion we have an award-winning vegan café, packed with delicious plant-based recipes, smoothies, fantastic raw recipes, great desserts, and small treats and of course, a big reason to travel all the way to Thailand for Yoga teacher training is Thai Food.
Thai food is regularly voted one of the world’s favourite cuisines. If you have ever tried it or are a Thai food connoisseur, you will surely agree! If you do choose to come to Thailand train as a Yoga Teacher, then you will be able to sample all the delights this wonderful food has to offer. Koh Phangan has a large range of plant-based food restaurants, a lot of these are cafes and restaurants are based in the various Yoga retreats scattered across the island. There are also many food markets happening on different nights in villages on Koh Phangan which are great to delve into all the flavours Thai food has to offer.
The natural environment of Thailand is one of the most beautiful in the world, large swathes of rainforest, mountains, beaches, Thailand has it all. Here at Orion, our retreat is right on the white sand beach of Sri Thanu Bay. If you should choose to sign on to our 200 hour Yoga teacher training programme https://www.orionhealing.com/200-hr-multistyle-yoga-teacher-training then you will spend most of that 200 hours living in a jungle environment a stones throw away from the lapping waves of the Gulf of Thailand. What could be better? Our small slice of paradise is surrounded by other bays and beaches with easy access to Koh Samui and Koh Tao.
The people on Koh Phangan are lovely. Locals, people who live there and tourists, it is tough not to be happy when you are living in the sunshine, surrounded by beautiful natural environments.
