About this trip

The Yoga House Koh Phan Ngan Thailand

Excellence in education in the lap of luxury.

Nestled in the jungle of Koh Phan Ngan island, known as the Crystal Island as the island is formed of quartz and rose quartz minerals, the Yoga House is a traditional Thai-Style home in the heart of the jungle minutes from several villages, the main city center, and numerous stunning beaches. 

The Yoga House provides on-site vegan and vegetarian meals with a middle-eastern twist. Walking distance from the house is a fabulous Thai restaurant and homemade ice-cream shop. 

The Yoga House is just far enough away to feel secluded and yet minutes from everything you could need. 


This 16 day Intensive (15 nights, 16 days), Yoga Alliance approved, 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is a foundational training rooted in the lineages of Hatha and Ashtanga yoga.  This Yoga Alliance certified training will provide participants with the knowledge, practice, and experience to become creative, competent, and inspiring teachers.

The training is open to all, both those inspiring to become the next generation of dynamic teachers as well as to those simply wishing to immerse themselves in the practice of yoga. Those with injuries and health issues are welcome and encouraged to attend. 



Students will be able to perform or guide a student into various asana (postures). Additionally, for each posture participants will know the safety precautions, modifications, contraindications, the proper alignment of the pose, and will feel confident offering hands-on-adjustments.


Pranayama: Effectively guide and practice various traditional pranayama exercise and effectively link movement with breath.

Bandhas: Understand the bandhas and how to apply them in their own practice as well as their student's.


Students should feel comfortable guiding a basic meditation practice and cultivating awareness and movement as meditation through a guided asana practice.


Students will be familiar with the 8 limbs of yoga and the ethical principles of yoga (the yamas and the niyamas). They will have a basic understanding of the history of  modern yoga. They will be familiar with the classic yogic texts. Additionally, students will learn how to live a yogic lifestyle, taking their yoga off of their mats and into their day-to-day lives. 


Students will be able to correctly identify the primary bones and muscles of the body. They will understand movement principles and how to prevent injury. Students will also have a basic understanding of the yoga energetic body (the chakras, nadis, and koshas).


Graduating teachers will feel comfortable leading a group, all-levels class. Students will be comfortable with sequencing, cueing, and leading. They will be able to guide students safely through a 60-minute alignment-based vinyasa class. 


Students will grow their personal practice, develop their voice, and deepen their connection. They will learn to lead and to support their fellow teachers and community members.

Selena Garefino began practicing yoga when she was 13 years old. Yoga has been and continues to be for Selena, a vehicle for learning to shift from habitual emotional and behavior tendencies towards serving highest possibility. Selena completed her first vinyasa training with Core Power Yoga. She went on to study with Sarah Powers, Melina Meza, Anne Phyfe, Nicolai Bachman, Elena Brower, Douglas Brooks, Rod Stryker, and Noah Mazé. She has studied Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pre-natal and Postpartum Yoga, Vinyasa, and Hatha Yoga. Selena is dedicated to teaching movement through artful alignment to support her students on and off of their mats. Her classes offer yoga and meditation as a mechanism to shift the way we offer ourselves in all aspects of our lives and as a tool for granting profound healing in our bodies, our hearts, and ultimately our relationships. Selena is a PhD Candidate in South Asian Anthropology. And holds an MPH in International Health.


Selena is steeped in knowledge, compassion, and the art of teaching. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to deepen their practice and their way of thinking.

Every training I feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information presented wondering if I'm going to retain any of it. The next class I teach though, I feel more confident, more present. After every training I feel like I have more to offer my students. That's a feeling you can't buy.

I want to personally thank Selena Garefino for providing an amazing immersive experience. I booked this program not knowing what was involved, nor expecting to ever teach a yoga class, my goal was to grow my personal home practice. Thank you for helping me do that, challenging my comfort zones, and opening my eyes to so much more. I still don't know if I will ever teach a yoga class, but I do know without a doubt that the option is now well within reach. I feel I have only scratched the surface of my yoga journey, so I definitely will be pursuing additional yoga trainings and retreats, as well as different schools of yoga moving forward. On my personal journey of knowledge and self exploration I am beyond grateful to have crossed paths with Selena Garefino and for the opportunity to learn from her and Hali Love. I truly feel blessed to have met both of these amazing women and to have shared this unique experience with a limitless group of women from all over the world.

Such a great experience. I gained so much knowledge and walked away with tools that I can easily apply in my day to day life and practice. Thank you for time, energy and space.
