A Typical Day
5:30am – Daily Cleansing
Shat Kriyas or Yogic cleansing processes are an integral part of yoga as they help eliminate accumulated toxins from the system. The body functions like a machine and like a machine it has to be continuously cleaned and maintained. It is this cleansing of toxins like mucus, gas, acid, sweat, urine and stool that improves its functioning. Kriyas also help prepare the body and condition it for the proper practice of yogasana and pranayama.
6:00am – Daily Hatha practice
An energising Hatha practice. Every morning you will have a Hatha class. These classes are a good place to work on your alignment, learn relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with doing yoga while building strength and flexibility.
7:15am – Pranayama
Breath is essential to life. Our breathing is influenced by our thoughts, and our thoughts and physiology can be influenced by our breath. Learning to breathe consciously and with awareness is the fourth limb of yoga and it can be a valuable tool in helping to restore balance in the mind and body.
8:15am – Breakfast & Study break
Re-fuel with a healthy vegan/vegetarian breakfast in our cafe and enjoy time with your fellow students and teachers, where you can reflect on what you have learnt, what you are feeling and ask questions in a casual, relaxed space.
10:30am – Philosophy or Chanting
The yoga Sutras of Patanjali is a key text of the yoga school of Hinduism and we teach this classic text in a way that you can immediately start incorporating yoga philosophy into your daily life.
Embrace the energy of chanting mantras in your chanting classes. You will learn the meaning of many mantras and when they are used. You will practice mantras you can use in your classes as a teacher and mantras for your own personal use.
11:30am – Meditation
Our meditation and mindfulness classes are based on the teachings of Buddhist Zen Master Thict Nhat Hanh.
“Mindfulness is the energy that helps us recognsise the conditions of happiness that are already present in our lives. You don’t have to wait ten years to experience this happiness. It is present in every moment of your daily life. There are those of us who are alive but don’t know it. But when you breathe in, and you are aware of your in-breath, you touch the miracle of being alive. That is why mindfulness is a source of happiness and joy.”
12:45pm – Lunch Break
We serve a combination of traditional Vietnamese dishes and western meals to keep you energised and satisfied!
1:45pm – Anatomy
Our Anatomy classes will teach you the fundamental information needed to apply anatomy to yoga postures and your practice.
2:45pm – Self Study break
Chill out on the roof top terrace or sit in the Nomad cafe and hit the books!
4:00pm – Ashtanga practice
Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronising the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
6:00pm – Dinner
After your Ashtanga practice, you will be ready for dinner! This is another chance to reflect on the day, share and enjoy nourishing your body.

About Hoi An
UNESCO World Heritage
Hoi An is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th-19th century and gained recognition as a world heritage site in 1999. The contrast of the ancient port set against the colourful yellow old town provides a picturesque setting.
Hoi An is well known for its colourful lanterns that light up the old town at night. Even the canals surrounding the old town are lit up with floating lanterns. Each month they host a full moon festival where the entire old town turns off all the power and is lit only by lanterns.
The cafés in Hoi An are as diverse and unique as the travellers that pass through this town. You will find an endless array of charming restaurants and coffee shops to discover.
Rural Life & Rice Fields
Outside of the old town, you will find traditional rice paddies with cows and ducks grazing as well as fishermen in the tranquil waterways.
Multiple amazing Sandy beaches perfect for a relaxing day swimming.
“Nomad Yoga has become a home away from home for me. The teachers, the students and the staff, who were feeding us delicious vegan meals three times a day, soon felt like family. Lessons were always filled with laughter and joy and we were not only able to deepen our physical practice, but share insights, question beliefs and grow as people. Thank you Nomad for these incredible 4 weeks!” – Fran
“The 200hr yoga TTC course far exceeded my expectations. The fact that the main teacher trained in India gives the course a traditional feel, and having it based in Hoi An provides a relaxed atmosphere. It was the perfect balance of challenging and fun. The food was delicious, my class mates were delightful, and the yoga lessons have increased my strength and flexibility to a level that I could have never reached on my own. I thoroughly recommend doing your teacher training at Nomad.” – Alida
