Our program is a combination of intensive hands-on, in-class training and practice combined with self-paced distance learning/ home study. This allows the greatest flexibility and personal programming for the unique and individual needs of students.
A SomaVeda® Certified Thai Yoga Therapy and/ or SomaVeda® Thai Massage Teacher is someone who is an expert in various aspects of SomaVeda® style Integrated Traditional Therapies specializing in Thai Traditional Medicine, Ayurveda based Thai Yoga Therapy, Thai Massage, Nuad Boran and related holistic health and is able to offer students and clients a wide array of Yoga based educational and natural treatment options. A TCP graduate is able to use the latest advances in nutrition and holistic medicine to offer positive lifestyle changes, and a Thai Yoga based wellness and exercise program. A TCP graduate has knowledge of anatomy, and medical terminology, and possesses strong empathy for his fellow men and women. A TCP Provider is a truly holistic educational consultant and specialist in SomaVeda®. What is SomaVeda® Thai Yoga? Basically, Thai Yoga involves moving from a state of non-health into health using only natural means. By “natural” we mean originating in nature or natural processes, safe, non-invasive, holistic, organic, and not involving drugs and or surgical procedures. Natural is harnessing the powers of nature as methods to restore harmony and equilibrium of mind, body, and spirit. To bring the whole person into balance and all of their disparate parts into balance.
The holistic practitioner addresses the vital energy, the Qi or chi, the meridians, the Chakra, and the breath, using safe and natural herbs and natural substances. The hands-on balancing is via traditional indigenous and oriental systems including but not limited to Thai Traditional Medicine Theory and practice, Thai Yoga (Traditional Thai Massage), Traditional Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese medicine, Western Traditional Naturopathy (Sacred Nature Cure), nutrition and supplementation. Strategies to cleanse and detoxify the whole person of everything from parasites to bad energy and vibrations. Techniques and strategies are utilized to bring back to the person all of the resources that might be deficient or missing from the client’s life state keeping them from experiencing optimal wellness and a sense of harmony and well-being in their body, mind, and spirit. The SV-TCP uses traditional Ayurveda, Thai Yoga Therapy, Yoga Vinyasa, flows, Asana and prayer and fasting as well as Puja (therapeutic Prayers), light and sound, and touch to act as the genesis of healing and support. Our “school within a school” Buddhai Sawan Sangha teaches traditional Thai and Filipino Martial Arts for mindfulness and self-defense. This is the best and perhaps one of the most profound and creative professions in the art and science of healing today!
An SV-TCP recognizes that the whole person needs to be treated and is able to assess the client’s emotional state while helping to establish a positive balance between body, mind, and spirit. A TCP graduate works on the premise that the body has an innate healing ability and his/her job lies in helping to establish the right environment for self-healing to take place.
Additionally, graduates are trained to be practiced and competent communicators and teachers. Education and communication may be the most powerful healing tools of all! Our graduates are certified to teach and to give independent certification in the SomaVeda® curriculum for CTP (Certified Thai Yoga Practitioner) program. (All 14 basic courses and breakouts.)
The TCP program is included at no additional cost for graduates of both our ASA, BSSc, or DSNM/ND as well as our Doctor of Philosophy Sacred Ayurveda Medicine (Ph.D. Ayurveda) Diploma Programs. The “TCP” Certificate program may be added as an additional training certification to or with our (BareFoot Doctor) DSTIM. Call for an interview to discuss your educational needs.

How long does the program take to complete?
The SomaVeda® Teacher Certification Program is designed to be done “in life”. That means you are able to integrate the training into your existing life situation. It consists of four direct modules beginner, intermediate and advanced with a few hours of home study. These modules are offered six (6) times a year at our Brooksville, Florida sanctuary, facility, and school. If you did the 4 required in-class modules back to back you could easily complete your requirements in less than twelve months! Scholarship students are given a full two years (24 months) from the date of registration to complete all requirements. After the first 24 months, if you need more time, that’s fine however a maintenance fee of $100.00 per month will be assessed beginning in month #25 after registration for the next 24 months. After that, the student will be withdrawn from the program. The only exception to this policy will be an emergency medical leave of absence verified in writing by management. The pacing is entirely up to the student, you! The question is “When do you want to begin teaching?”.
Can I take extra time to complete the program?
The amount of time varies from student to student. Some finish in 9 to 12 months, while others take up to two years to complete their studies. There is a set time limit of 2 years (24 months from the official enrollment date). However, we do feel that in order to maintain your momentum it is best to study on a regular basis rather than just once or twice a month. After two years the program goes to a “month to month” billing basis until the student teacher graduates or withdraws from the program.
What are the legal implications of Teaching and practicing SomaVeda® Thai Yoga?
Under our program, SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage, Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda and related healing arts taught and practiced in our program are legal in all 50 states and US Territories!
The TCP Program dedicates an entire module to the legalities of teaching SomaVeda® Thai Yoga in the United States. We’ll teach you all the right tools to develop a successful SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Program for yourself and your students. Additionally, SomaVeda® teachers become part of the NAIC, Inc., a Native American Church Tribal Organization and expressive Private Member Health Association, and are given authority to legally teach and practice the authorized healing and counseling modalities, Yoga and Yoga Therapy without restrictive and or unnecessary licensing anywhere in the US while following our established guidelines. All necessary agreements, forms, etc. are furnished at no charge to our Certified Teachers. Although NAIC Ordination is not required, if you’re to work as a minister under the NAIC Legal Shield, NAIC SCNM graduates are eligible for NAIC Ministerial Ordination.
