Our school is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance©.  Once you graduate from our Teacher Training course you are automatically able to register yourself as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with all of the international yoga certification bodies.  Our course is designed to surpass the requirements of all Yoga alliances.  We are here to help you build your skills and confidence and will guide you every step of the way.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Tavoos hosts & delivers, 200 hour Traditional Yoga Alliance© Registered Yoga Teacher Trainings throughout the year.  

Our Yoga Trainings are typically 20 Days long and run from early morning to evening, with one day free in the middle of the course to relax, recharge or explore the town and the majestic temples of Angkor Wat.

The days start early with sunrise practice and finishes with a group Satsang.  The classes take place in the gorgeous shala in the middle of our tropical garden which can fit up to 30 students  comfortably or our private air conditioned, indoor studio next door which can seat up to 12 students.

Although we have the capability of hosting large groups, it is important to us to keep our class sizes smaller with maximum 20 students.  This allows for our teachers to be able to dedicate personal attention to all students.  

Our course is designed to embrace both beginner yogis, as well as more experienced ones.  Another reason why we keep our class sizes small is to allow the course to be restructured from time to time in order to cater to the experience level of each group.

A typical day of training includes lectures about yoga history, philosophy, anatomy, physiology, asanas, practicums, meditation, breathing, yoga nidra and discussions.  With meal breaks and self study time. At the end of each day, students can go into town to wander the night markets which have music, shopping, cafes & restaurants and massages.  Center of the town is only a 10 minute walk away.

Let’s not forget the best part of this course.  You will make life long friends with fellow yogis from all corners of the world.

Madhav is an Indian yoga teacher who is born and raised in a traditional way.  The yogic traditions that go to back to the ancient times are something he learned throughout childhood as part of his heritage.

He has vast education and experience in fields related to yoga such as Philosophy, Sanskrit, Hindi, Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda, Pranic Healing, Reflexology and a Masters Degree in Yoga and Meditation.

Madhav has traveled and worked with students all over the world and is especially known for his Teacher Training role as a lead teacher in Yoga Ashram, India. In his teachings, he deeply focuses on passing the ancient truth and traditions of yoga while maintaining a modern approach by guiding students by developing self discipline in areas such as spirituality, mental strength, physical movement and awareness.

Madhav has been the director of Tavoos Yoga Teacher Training Programs since 2018.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

By joining one a Yoga Teacher Training Course at Tavoos, not only are you experiencing a professional course, but you are contributing back to the local community in a unique way.

Tavoos is not a commercialised, profit driven school.  We are a non-profit social venture operated by a group of yogis and humanitarians from Canada, Netherlands and Cambodia.

We operate under these two rules:

  1. To bring you the most authentic and professional teachings of yoga.  Making sure that you graduate as a well versed yoga teacher, with all the essential knowledge of yoga such as philosophy, history, asanas and anatomy.
  2. To use income generated from our yoga school to provide clean water to local families, to provide hygiene products and education to local girls and to empower aspiring Cambodian yoga teachers by donating spots in our courses.

We want to encourage our students to embrace the concept of giving back into their day to day lives.  This is why as part of our course, we dedicate a day for you to take part in our community projects.  As well we give you a chance to spend a few days after the course to volunteer with us.

By joining our teacher training program you can rest assured that all the money you spend is going directly back into the local community.

Please read our regulations for volunteering and interacting with beneficiaries

FOOD & ACCOMMODATIONS

Food:  There are three meals included as part of the course fee.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner.  All prepared in our own kitchen under the supervision of our chef who has been trained to cater to guests who have special dietary requirements or restrictions.

During our teacher training course we only serve vegan meals.  Don’t worry, there is plenty of plant based protein options to keep your body energised.  The reason we only serve vegan is to prevent anyone from experiencing stomach problems.  This does not mean that the local meet is unsafe, however as each student comes from a different part of the world, everyone’s stomach enzymes are used to different biologicals in their local meat.  As this is an intensive course, it would not be a good idea to risk missing any classes due to stomach issues.

As part of your registration you will be asked to fill out details about any medical issues or dietary restrictions.  All information is strictly confidential for your teacher, as well as our chef so she can make sure that our kitchen staff take extra measures to satisfying students’ needs.  Any students with severe allergies will have their meals prepared at a separate area.

During meal times, students have the flexibility of eating their meals in one of our beautiful Gazebos in Tavoos Garden, or by their room or poolside at Green Leaf Boutique Hotel.  Meals are served buffet style and all ingredients are organic and locally sourced.

Accommodations: If you choose to stay at our “on-site” accommodations, you will be staying at the beautiful Green Leaf Boutique Hotel, which is an award winning non-profit hotel.  You also have the option to stay at the cozy “Nika’s House” guests house if you are on a budget or if Green Leaf Boutique is full.  Nika’s house is only 50 meters away from our school.  Both properties have a beautiful pool, as well as high speed WiFi, Air conditioning, in-room safe, private showers and bathrooms, daily house keeping as well as many other amenities.

For students on a very tight budget, we have the option for you to choose the “self-accommodation” package when registering.  This way you can choose to stay at any guesthouse or hostel in Siem Reap.  You are responsible for your own transportation to and from our school each day.

All students staying at Nika’s house or those who have chosen self-accommodations will still be able to enjoy the pool at Green Leaf Boutique at any time.

Private & Shared: Please note that we only allow shared accommodation packages for couples, friends or family members taking the course together.  We feel that every student needs some privacy at the end of a long day, so we never allow strangers to share a room.
