Our lead teacher Coco, was certified in the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system of Tirumala Krishnamacharia, who is often referred to as the “father of modern yoga” and widely regarded as the one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century.  She is accompanied by Astrid, who has over 1500 hours of Yoga Alliance certified trainings, specialising in anatomy, physiology and a truly holistic practice, having immersed herself in the ashram’s of India where she lived for 5 years.

Herbologist and Co-Founder of Orion, Daliah Barkan will be sharing her passion for plants, flowers and their power to cleanse and heal, working with guided journeys, creating tinctures, and exploring how plant-based nutrition supports our healing and ascension for receiving the energies of higher vibration that support us in the roles of teacher and healer so we can work intuitively, safely and with self-care. Daliah’s mission is to help people understand that “the greatest medicine of all is to teach people not to need it.”

Grand Reiki Master and Co-Founder of Orion, Ari Barkan will be sharing how to give Reiki to yourself and others, to balance chakra’s and connect to the Divine Source, so you can "get out of your own way” and let the light, and energy of unconditional love in to work through you and for you, helping your fears and insecurities melt away.  He describes this practice as the “wordless language of the heart” which we all speak, uniting and inviting us into expanded consciousness; something that’s much needed at this time.

Located in the village of Srithanu, on the magical, crystal island paradise of Koh Phangan, we are a short walk or drive to perfect white sandy beaches, waterfalls, temples, jungle hikes, snorkelling, diving, ecstatic dance and fabulous restaurants serving everything from pizza to freshly caught fish, as well as an incredible array of healing arts offerings from the local yoga and wellness community.

We are dedicated to and passionate about cultivating a transformational environment that fosters kindness, care, and a community of peace and well-being, where the mind, body, spirit and heart are united for the good of all beings on this precious earth that we call home.

Be bold. Join us to take the next step on your yoga journey. Even if you’re terrified of coming off your mat to the front of the room, we’ll guide you into your greatness, supported by a loving community who will likely become your life-long friends and professional allies.  You can do it!

We are also offering a 4 day pre-training Orion signature detox to help restore your body’s natural self-healing ability, to purge toxins giving you a clearer mind, heightened intuition, emotional and physical cleanse, allowing for more positivity and potential to enter your life.

          NUTRITION


          Food is proved from our award winning vegan restaurant, where during the course you will be truly nourished.

          Leading on from the concept of Ahimsa we teach of the benefits of a plant based diet plant, incorporating into the course a Raw Food cooking class with our vegan Chef, where students will learn how to easily bring vegan plant based nutrition to their daily lives.

          Ahimsa or non-injury means entire abstinence from causing any pain or harm whatsoever to any living creature, either by thought, word, or deed. Non- injury requires a harmless mind, mouth, and hand. Ahimsa is positive, cosmic love.

          The subtle energy of your food becomes your mind - David Wolfe

                • “I have done TTC in Orion and it was one of the best experiences in my life (the other one is Detox Retreat also in Orion!!). Based on Detox retreat I have decided to join TTC and it gave me so much not just for becoming a yoga teacher but in my personal life and more. Ewa and Ben are great techers, I met amazing people, the food there is full of nutrition and love and the island byself is such a wonderful place. I would recommend it to everyone and if I could I would do it again just for the experience! Thanks again:-)”

                • “Did my 200hr YTTC with Ewa and Ben last November and it was the experience of a lifetime! If you are thinking of signing up for the course, look no further. I mean, no jokes, you will work hard, but gosh, it will equip you with everything you need to actually teach yoga. Since my course, I’ve guided a few yoga workshops and small classes and had great responses. Ewa, the main teacher is absolutely incredible; a hurricane if knowledge, assertiveness, and unapologetic discipline, but also of infinite love, kindness and sensitivity. She will capture everyone in her vortex, so stay prepared! The centre itself is so beautiful, right by the sea. The food is incredible and super nutritious. You will live unforgettable memories at Orion, I genuinely cannot wait to go back!!!”

                • “I have just completed their 28 days Ashtanga TTC and it was everything I had hoped for and more.

                  They have a lovely, peaceful stretch of land right on the beach which has three shalas, dozens of bungalows, a vegan restaurant, Balinese-style beach huts, a steam room, a sauna, massage rooms and much more. They also provide cleansing retreats, fasting, detox, holistic therapy and Reiki. Almost every night they have workshops including classes on writing, authentic communication, movie nights, sound healing etc, etc. Some of these workshops are free, some are donation based but all are optional and worthwhile.

                  More than just the facilities and courses on offer however, is the welcoming and loving energy that you feel 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 most friendly and helpful I have ever encountered, their food is honestly the best I have ever eaten (breakfast and lunch buffet is provided for the teacher training and it is simply delicious), 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. And that is perhaps my only complaint: that it was too short. After 28 days, I wanted the course to continue. We all wanted it to continue, all ten of my class members. We will always remember this place. We will always remember this time. And we will always return.”

Daliah, Coco and the rest of the crew, thank you. The healthy vegan food, and the overall feeling at Orion is just incredible. Ari is also an amazing, inspiring Reiki teacher. Forever grateful for this place, and I will be back, no doubt about that."

And that is perhaps my only complaint: that it was too short. After 28 days, I wanted the course to continue. We all wanted it to continue, all ten of my class members. We will always remember this place. We will always remember this time. And we will always return.”

                The most amazing life changing experience! They provide with such a fantastic atmosphere, as well as very professional and caring teachers. I became to love them as family. Daliah, Coco and the rest of the crew, thank you. The healthy vegan food, and the overall feeling at Orion is just incredible. Ari is also an amazing, inspiring Reiki teacher. Forever grateful for this place, and I will be back, no doubt about that."

                I have done TTC in Orion and it was one of the best experiences in my life gave me so much, not just for becoming a yoga teacher but in my personal life and more. I met amazing people, the food is full of nutrition and love and the island itself is such a wonderful place. I would recommend it to everyone and if I could I would do it again just for the experience!

Her hands-on corrections are the best. Plus, Orion Centre is a little paradise on Earth. If you want to increase your Yoga practice in multiple ways, this is your place to be :)”

                Reiki Healing

                Reiki is a frequency that promotes balance and harmony, it boosts relaxation and thus reduces stress. This “Divine Universal Life Force Energy” is our birth right and is available for all regardless of belief system, religion, race, gender by means of attuning our cosmic vibration to this frequency. Reiki is known to be a multi-level healing source, that promotes healing on all levels; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, and well as on our subconscious, gently helping to balance the energies within. At Orion Healing Center we feel deeply passionate about spreading this teaching and connecting with as many people as possible.
