This program is organized with a group teaching model. Depending on each teacher’s specific strengths and skills, we will assign a rotation of roles for each class (roles include lead teacher (s), demo, assist, observer). Please note that each role in this group teaching approach is equally important as we offer yoga to this community. Depending on volume of teachers and schedule, not every teacher will have the opportunity to fulfill each role. We ask for a commitment to flexibility as the week unfolds.

Traveling To Myanmar (Burma)

Please consider the following when traveling to Myanmar (Burma), especially this time of year. All of these topics will be covered in depth upon joining the trip officially:

  • Tourist Visa:  All participants will be required to obtain a Tourist Visa, which allows for 28 days of travel. The Visa takes 3-5 business days (on average) to process once the application is completed and submitted, and costs ~$50USD. Click here for more Myanmar (Burma) Visa info

  • Vaccinations: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommendations for vaccinations and medications to consider when traveling to this country. We encourage each traveler to engage in their own research, consult their physician, and execute the healthcare plan that is best suited for them personally.

  • Weather: April is a very HOT time of year. Temperatures average between 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. We will be sleeping with AC units. The rooms that we will be teaching yoga are cooled by several fans. Power surges with the electricity are to be expected.

  • Thingyan: Our travel coincides with the Thingyan celebration. During Thingyan, many businesses shut down in observance of the holiday. This makes it especially important to have all travel details and plans, both before and after your time at the nunnery, carefully planned before arriving in country. We can offer some advisement on how best to prepare.

  • Timeline: We ask that each participant be able to arrive in Yangon at least 2 full days early, to allow for rest and adjustment to the time and climate. This means sleeping 2 nights in Yangon before we begin on April 10th. Allowing yourself the necessary time and and measures prior to your stay at the nunnery is crucial to both the yoga program and meditation program.
