Life can often push and pull us in many directions. A regular yoga practice combined with a mindfulness practice can help us find the balance to live a joyful life.

Our unique Hatha Yoga Teacher Training has a strong emphasis on mindfulness to help you carry your practice into daily life, on and off the yoga mat, and to live life fully in every moment, especially with your loved ones. 
 
Gain a better insight of your own physical asana (posture) practice, and a better understanding of anatomical alignment, biomechanics & joint restrictions, and how to keep safe and free from injuries. 

The teacher training is open to all those who desire to deepen their yoga & mindfulness practice. You can be a novice or experienced practitioner, an existing teacher wanting to refresh your practices, or an aspiring yoga teacher. 

The training is divided into 3 modules. To enroll in Module 3 it is required that you first attend Module 1 and Module 2 OR you are currently a yoga teacher and would like to deepen your teaching and practice knowledge.

saigon om is a Registered Yoga Alliance School. After completion of Modules 1, 2 & 3 you can become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) with Yoga Alliance.

As someone who has spent most of my life looking for ways to find calmness, the joy of discovering practical tools to help me achieve inner peace has been instrumental to finding a more harmonious balance on and off my mat.

saigon om’s Yoga Teacher Training was an absolute joy to embark on. The space Hang and Sarah held, and the community they inspired in our little sangha, made it possible for me to meet seemingly impossible challenges head on, in a space brimming with love and compassion. This training tested my limits, patience, breath, and fears from start to finish, but it was worth every minute. I truly recommend it to anyone yearning to crack themselves open and let their true light shine through.

saigon om’s Yoga Teacher Training provided by Hang and Sarah was a life changing opportunity for me. Each of the 3 modules was mindfully delivered and provided multiple opportunities for new yoga learning, growth, and development for not only the physical body, but the spirit and soul as well. Asana practice developed and refined from a foundation deeply rooted in mindfulness has enabled me to deepen both my yoga and meditation practices. I cannot thank Hang and Sarah enough for their personalized teaching styles and heartfelt practices, always filled with peace, love and joy!
