Start a great adventure of personal development in a nourishing environment and find a deeper connection in yourself. Say goodbye to heavy energy, suppressed self-esteem, and the inner negative voice. Then, say hello to the idea of the full human being, connecting body, mind, and soul. This is a transformational journey for teachers with holistic training, deep personal development, and pure joy for the body and mind with amazing nature, warmth, and serene Bali settings.
Nirarta Centre in beautiful Bali is a quiet oasis with an amazing view of the mountains, rice fields, and river. Besides the veranda to your room and the couches in the dining area, there are various places where you can relax, reflect, read, and embrace nature. For example, you can spend an afternoon in the traditional antique carved pavilion with six pillars, locally known as the “bale sakenem” located in the shady peaceful center of the upper garden.
All the buildings are connected by paths running through the lush flower-filled gardens. A refreshing breeze up the river valley keeps the temperature pleasant that makes air-conditioning unnecessary. Around the gardens, there is a further hectare of terraced farmland growing rice, chillies, peanuts, shallots, and other traditional crops.
This teacher's training will take place in Nirarta Centre for Living Awareness, Sidemen, Karangasem, Bali, Indonesia. Only half an hour from both magnificent mountains and seashores, the center’s lush gardens nestle in terraced rice fields. Overlooking the Unda River, Nirarta is surrounded by a ring of green hills in unspoilt east Bali.
It is situated near the holy mountain Gunung Agung. The nearest village is Tabola, just a short walk away from the center. Close by, you will also find the small town Sidemen where you can find local shops amongst other things.
At this teacher training, you will receive 29 days retreat in Bali, Indonesia, 21 teaching days, and four weekends to let all this new knowledge land in your body and mind, recharge, and give space to your process. It will be a great adventure of personal development in a nourishing environment that allows you to let go of everything that no longer serves you. In your free time, you will also have the possibility to explore the area’s unique nature and visit the serene temple sites.
You will have delicious and nutritious vegetarian meals served three times a day, which allows you to immerse yourself into the teacher training’s content and your personal transformation. You experience time and space to just receive and feel the quietness.
Living Yolates teacher training is an in-depth teacher training program, at a professional and personal level, and it gives you a great opportunity to transform your life physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Here, participants will open up to a sense of community and to meet each other before the journey.

"I have been practicing dance and yoga with Mikkala since I moved back home to Copenhagen and Denmark 4 years ago. The way Mikkala works both with the body, mind and her healing, soothing, feminine ways has helped me break down hardness in my own being and heart, and supported my process into the feminine flow through movement, dance, imperfection, allowing and surrender. I am very grateful for the experiences I have had with Mikkala, and I am thrilled and thankful to call her a business partner, collaborating with me at The Passion Institute."
