Experience an Authentic Yoga Journey

WITH SUNNY YOGA IN KOH PHANGAN

At Sunny Yoga, a charming boutique school founded by the remarkable Thai yoga teacher, Sunny (Sunsanee) Intaphong, our school is a true gem nestled on the tranquil shores of Koh Phangan. What makes us truly special is that we’re the only yoga school in South Thailand led by a Thai woman.

She doesn’t just teach from books; her lessons are drawn from her rich life experiences. Sunny’s approach is down-to-earth, focusing on genuine self-improvement rather than quick fixes. She guides you on a journey to become the best version of yourself through dedication, practice, and a touch of lightheartedness.

small group

We keep our class sizes small to provide personalized attention, 15 students maximum. Our intimate class sizes create a close-knit community, allowing students to connect deeply with their practice. After training, you’ll have the freedom to craft your own sequences, a testament to Sunny’s commitment to nurturing your growth.

LOCATION

The training takes place on a tropical island Koh Phangan at the Siam Healing Center located in Thong Sala, the main town of Koh Phangan, Thailand. Siam Healing Center is famous for its Art Market where local artists come to showcase their art and craft.

EXPERIENCE THAI CULTURE

Embrace Thai culture, adventure, and be part of it! What truly sets Sunny Yoga apart is the infusion of Thai culture and adventurous spirit into our training. It’s not just about yoga; it’s about immersing yourself in a unique experience.

I recently took a yoga teacher training course where Sunny was teaching the art of teaching, going in detail through all the asanas and teaching vinyasa yoga. Sunny is highly professional and an absolute delight to be around. She explained everything in great detail, was always patient and to the point. Her sense of humour is contagious and she has the great gift of bringing lightness and joy to her classes while at the same time being serious and committed to the practise. 💯 recommended ❤️🙏

Kru Sunny is a prime example of a sublime teacher. Patient, kind, caring and humourous. All of her classes were saturated with knowledge and smiles. Students automatically respect her through her graceful, elegant yet humble demeanor. Her asanas and demonstrations are so exquisite to behold. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sunny in teaching all levels of yoga. She is so warm and kind hearted. A very charming likeable person and graceful teacher. Thank you for everything you shared with us all on our YTTC 200 hour course. I will cherish these memories always and respect you until my last Savasana. Om shanti shanti shanti 🙏

I had some drop-in yoga classes with Sunny in 2018, and it had been my dream to study yoga with her since then. Finally my dream came true. I just finished my 200 TTC training with Sunny. She put her heart into teaching. Every class was fully loaded with her expertise in yoga, enriched by her personal stories. She has so much to offer about yoga teaching. In every session of her art of teaching class, I learnt a lot about each posture, gained new knowledge about my body and myself. For postures I couldn’t do yet, she would demonstrate how to get in and how to get out in a very detailed way. She cares about how you and your body felt. I never felt the pressure to try postures I felt I was not ready for yet at that moment. When you displayed the willingness to go further, she was always there to guide you. For postures I could do and thought was simple and easy, such as Gorilla and abdominal twist, I came to realize I did nothing right. I hope I know much fancier words to describe how amazing Sunny is as a yoga teacher. I enjoyed every class with her.🌞🌻

Sunny was such a blessing to come across as well as an inspiration of a teacher. She brought such a new light to yoga for me in the way she teaches alongside her personality shining through. If you get the opportunity to do a class or to learn from her definitely take it. I could not recommend her more for someone who is starting their yoga during or is an expert yogi.
