Gaia Oasis Abasan Mountain Retreat-Resort is located in Tejakula, in the northern part of Bali, off the beaten track of mainstream tourism. They are the perfect location for those wanting to be nestled in a green sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist belt, but still desiring to be within distance of many interesting sights in Bali.

Only 20 minutes from Gaia, you will find the black sandstone temple of Ponjok Batu, one of the Bali’s most important sea temples. On the way to Singaraja, the former Balinese capital, there are many other temples, mentioned in every travel guide.

The hill village of Ubud, famous for its art and culture, is only 1.5 hours drive away, and the volcanoes of Gunung Batur and Gunung Agung are within a short drive. If you are into dance, you may have heard that Tejakula is home to Bali’s most famous wayang wong: a classical dance featuring Rama and the monkey kings of the Ramayana epic.

This 300-hour immersion follows on where 8 Limbs Yoga's 200-hour level 1 immersion leaves off. This training is for those who have at least a basic level of most aspects of yoga integrated into their daily life. If you are still struggling with this, 8 Limbs Yoga recommends that you first attend their level 1 immersion. The level 1 is an excellent format with comprehensive techniques on how to achieve this.

The level 2 immersion is suitable for anyone wishing for a deep immersion into the more advanced aspects of yoga as well as for those who seek a professional education. The program includes the physical therapy and rehabilitation possibilities of yoga, looking at yoga prescriptions for specific physical problems and pathologies, as well as modifications for those unable to do a traditional Ashtanga yoga practice.

You will also delve into the anatomy of the more complex postures of the primary series (Kurmasana, Drop Backs, etc.) and the intermediate postures and their adjustments. Another topic will be Mantra yoga, including japa, using a mala, and Sanskrit chanting.

Gregor will take you deeper into the more advanced aspects of pranayama such as bhastrika, internal and external breath retentions, and much more. He will also teach how to integrate these into meditation. The main focus will be to establish yourself in a daily practice of the higher limbs of yoga.

Gregor’s latest textbook, "Samadhi The Great Freedom", will also be covered in details including Patanjali’s 8 samadhis and his process of de-conditioning. Emphasis will also be placed on bhavana, cultivating thought patterns in alignment with life and the bringing about of mystical and spiritual states. More advanced concepts of the Bhagavad Gita and yoga Sutra will also be covered together with Vedic chants and much more.

The program is challenging but 8 Limbs Yoga believes the content to be more than equally rewarding and thereby engaging. There will be 6 full days of tuition per week followed by a whole day off. The training is Yoga Alliance 300-hour accredited.

    "I found Gregor and Monica’s TTC to be very informative and precise. Together they provide a perfect balance in each area of their expertise, Gregor with his incredible depth of knowledge in Philosophy, Pranayama and Meditation, and Monica with her detailed and easy to digest explanations on Anatomy and Teaching methodology. The fact they are authors of their own books helps out a great deal when referring back over notes whilst studying. I walked away from these weekend modules in a state where I just wanted to drop everything and immerse myself further in the studies of yoga. I have gained so much from the 200-hr course and their studio 8 Limbs. I am excited to be furthering my practice and studies with them."

    "Once in a lifetime, an opportunity comes along where you can learn from the very best teachers in their profession. Monica and Gregor are those teachers, and over the course of a year I found myself delving more deeply into my yoga studies under their expertise, passion, and compassionate guidance. After completing the teacher training I have developed a deeper understanding of yoga and myself, and am inspired to continue my learning as this is the legacy that they as teachers leave with you; they give you the tool and foundations for learning whilst encouraging and inspiring you to be your best self. There is so much knowledge between Monica and Gregor. It really was an honor to have some of this imparted on me."

    "It is said that a student learns the most, not from the techniques a teacher imparts but instead from their grace. We have all felt this grace in you both, these past weeks here in Tejakula, Bali, we have all been profoundly moved and changed by your teachings and today we offer something back, our deep love, appreciation, and gratitude for this opportunity to be taught by you and to spend time here with you on this beautiful mountain being cared for by these gentle Balinese people."

I have reached many personal experiences and have spiritually opened up. I am blessed to have had this experience with the amazing staff and students. The food is so different, the accommodation is beautiful, and the lessons are informative. I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire session of Sivasoorya course."

    "Many thanks for the course and the teachings. It completely changed my practice and how I see yoga. At least now I have an understanding of pranayama and meditation and have a clear path to follow. Gonna take me a while to process and unpack what we have learnt but this has been a life changing experience. Just what I needed :) Your course and your teachings are true gold and I feel very privileged to have been able to study with you. Thank you again for the depth of these teachings."
