The Yoga Garden at Gili Yoga is a sanctuary of peace in the heart of Gili Trawangan. The rooms are set in a tropical garden, surrounding the beautiful yoga shala so that you wake up and step straight into your morning practice.

All of the rooms are modern and charming with cleanliness and comfort being a top priority. The rooms all have air conditioning, hot and fresh water, Wi-Fi, satellite television, mini fridges, safety deposit boxes, and even blackout curtains to ensure deep and healing sleep.

The Yoga Garden is a beautiful blend of healing sanctuary with adventure base camp. The coconut wood yoga shala is spacious, light and open, and the 25-meter swimming pool is perfect for free diving training or swimming laps. The Yoga Garden is also just steps away from the beach for swimming, snorkeling, and lounging.

During this teacher training, the emphasis will be on Vinyasa Flow, though all practices are considered as paths of conscious evolution. You will delve deeply into asana, pranayama, and meditation during this training. You will also incorporate Hatha, Yin, and ecstatic dance so that you may find your way and share your authentic and unique voice as a teacher. You will be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone, explore new territory, and question limiting beliefs.

The classes will also be fun, expansive, and inclusive. This intensive training is not a beach holiday, but you will have plenty of free time. This will be a process, a journey, a challenge, and a reward. This training is not only designed for those who want to become teachers. Many students often join for the process, the opportunity to deepen their understanding of yoga and themselves.

You will find yourself naturally stepping into a teaching role or people may even start coming to you because they recognize that you have something that they are seeking- peace, devotion, and integrity. This 200-hours yoga teacher training will be a deep dive into self-study, embodied practice, and conscious community. The program lasts 28 days and there will be one full day off each week for you to explore the island, absorb all of the information, and integrate the practices. Please note that the schedule is just an example and is subject to change.

  • Review by traveler from Perth, Australia

    "Step off the fast boat, walk up the beach and arrive at the doorstep of Freedive Gili and Gili Yoga. This place is not just about the dive classes, breathing training and increasing your flexibility, this is definitely one of the nicer places to stay on the island. Yes, it may not suit the budget conscious traveler, but if your destination is the Gili Islands, why not stay in style?My trip was to undertake some freedive training and I booked the accommodation as convenience was a higher priority than budget. The pictures on their site are spot on and the bungalows are an absolute treat to stay in. Daily sessions of Yoga outside your door are a nice touch too, whether you participate or just immerse yourself in the tranquility of the surroundings.The staffs are attentive to your every need and their local knowledge and advice on the places to eat or visit are fantastic.

    "Come here for excellent yoga. I love the yoga classes ....but try to find another place to stay. It is expensive by Bali standards. Breakfast was ok. Room was run down and not cleaned during our stay. Yoga mats are in rough shape. I love the yoga teachers but the manager was very unhelpful when I asked for clean towels or to make a local phone call."
