Why are we offering so much for so little? Anyone who has ever taken class with Aachan James will tell you he is nothing if not generous! Aachan wants the Practitioner and Instructor programs to be the best, the most intensive and comprehensive trainings of this kind offered anywhere in the world! It's not just about listing and memorizing techniques and so called "trigger points". Trigger points are good information... however, we believe to truly handle pain and suffering the fundamental dissonance of essence and being manifesting the pain and suffering must be addressed. It's about the true teaching and transmission of knowledge and being via a living master associated with a living lineage and active line of transmission. Our program is not so much about technique as about transformational processes using the traditional tools we have been given permission to use. And use we will. Aachan says "Be what you know". In our programs you will learn and practice living the practice.

And More!

Because we are "On the land", we are afforded special opportunities for community development, personal transformation, meditation and healing activities and enjoyment of life! Included at no additional fee or charge: NAIC Healing/ Medicinal Gardens, Trails and Sacred Land. We are committed to preserving our heritage through the energy and healing technologies supported by the SCNM: Thai Yoga Center. What is SomaVeda®?

What about the instructors credentials and background to lead you in this incredible training?

Want to learn more about where Aachan is coming from? See the evidence of his life long devotion to teaching, healing and energy work. Review his credentials and background. We can guarantee that his certifications, credentials and recognitions as a teacher in Yoga, Oriental and Thai Traditions are equal to or more substantial than any one else in the world today! Don't take our word for it, see for yourself... Go to: Dr. Anthony B James.

A question? Why settle and train with someone who heard about it from someone? This is your opportunity to train with a "Source", a genuine Master in this work... why consider for a minute to go somewhere else? This program presents the possibility of gaining your own unique FIRST HAND experience, not someone else interpretation of what they think you need to know.
