Overview

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training in Bali

One of the main experiences we are blessed with in a teacher training is learning to teach ourselves about ourselves. The clearer we become, the more we remember who we really are, the more we can inspire others to do the same. Teaching others is the best way to master the art of living with full awareness, humility and a deep appreciation for all that is. As a teacher, you are reflecting profound truths that will forever uplift your students perspective on life and what is possible.

Naya Academy for inspired arts

Naya Academy is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) under Yoga Alliance. This 200-Hour Kundalini yoga teacher training is an opportunity to deeply immerse yourself in the ancient science of Kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, offering you a variety of techniques, tools and ways of being that will continuously allow you to keep raising your own vibrations, positively effecting both you and the world around you. In this space of expanded awareness and gratitude you become a lighthouse, you show the way as a teacher and become a shining example of our vast potentials for creativity, kindness and empowerment.

Nourishing body, mind, and soul

Set in Bali, one of the most beautiful islands on this planet, you will not only enrich your life through the teachings and yogic lifestyle, but also nourish your body, heart and soul with the healing energy of this magical island. This teacher training will also cultivate confidence, challenge insecurities, transform your ability to feel connected to yourself and others, and certainly shake things up. This commitment requires courage. You should come ready to work, to practice, to meet yourself, explore new gifts and transform. All the while in a nurturing, healing and supportive environment.

Her classes are joyful and uplifting, offering a dynamic blend of breathing, movement, postures, meditation, mantras, mudras and relaxation. This sacred science enables you to tap into your vast reservoirs of potential to feel abundantly creative, live graciously and gratefully!

Rebecca is based in Bali at Naya Ubud, a sanctuary for hosting beautiful retreats, homestays, nourishing meals, and stillness.

Arrival by car/van

Driving along Jalan Raya Sayan, turn at Puskesmas Ubud II, a government health clinic. This route is also known to locals as Jalan Kadewatan 1. Once you see a traditional Balinese temple, stay on the right, and continue straight. The end of the road leads down to a small concrete bridge that crosses a small irrigation canal. Go down the slope, take a right hand turn and follow the rice fields until you see a sign on Nayas property, which will be on your left.

It is recommended that as you travel to Naya that you have your driver or transport contact.

For information about the booking conditions, please send Naya Ubud an inquiry.

My retreat was exactly what the doctor ordered - I was fully chilled and recharged by the end and ready to explore Bali. Amazing food, delightful & helpful staff, great yoga classes, gorgeous location. I couldn't recommend it more - perfection."

    "I would highly recommend Naya Ubud for the yoga retreat and a proper getaway to sit back and relax from the hustle and bustle. I stayed in villa Naomi for the three days and two nights yoga retreat. First off, I really enjoyed the warm welcome of the staffs, especially Wayan Suti, who is very accommodating and polite. The place is also very well kept, clean, and has all the basic amenities and toiletries you need. Not forgetting to mention are the heartwarming and patient yoga Instructors; Rebecca and Jessica who took time to understand their customers and tailor their classes. Rebecca taught us about how the simplicity of Kundalini yoga plays a good wake up call to energize your body in the morning. Jessica did a great job to understand our body alignment and getting right on the basics of flow and breathing technique in yoga. Just a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends or even return here myself to attend the group yoga retreat!"

    "I did a private yoga retreat at Naya in July. It was a great experience and a good value. The staff was extremely helpful and the yoga instructor, Sandy, was terrific. I would recommend Naya to anyone looking for a group or private yoga retreat in Bali. While I was there, I also got a tour of the hydroponic garden that the owners son was in the process of constructing. This tour was not part of the package, but he was more than happy to give it anyway, which I appreciated since it was very informative. One thing you may not notice if you visit is that almost all of the trees and plants on the property are something interesting, whether they be passion fruit vines, mango trees, or vanilla plants. The only negative thing I have to say about Naya is that there juices, which are included with yoga retreat, were not good at all. They lacked flavor and were not even prepared consistently when I ordered the same on multiple times. I did mention this while I was there so maybe the juice problem has already been resolved."

    "The most beautiful vistas (rice paddies everywhere!), the loveliest rooms (rustic luxury; my favorite), the yummiest food (ask for the Balinese pancake, and prepare to fall in love), and the best mattress-sized porch swing! I stayed there on vacation, but I know they also offer group retreats, and their facilities for yoga and therapeutic practice are wonderful. Highly recommended."

    "Naya Ubud is so wonderful, because it is right outside the busy hustle of Ubud town. No cars and noise except for the birds, crickets. and sounds of the water of the river when you go to sleep. I loved to experience the more "local" life around Naya; walking through the rice fields, watching parades of the locals, going to a ceremony in authentic wear. The Balinese staff at Hotel Naya is super friendly and helpful with whatever you need. They give you the exact good price for a cab for instance and the cuisine is just outstanding!"

    "I loved this place. Small and personable. I was there for a three days and 2 nights yoga/culture retreat. Everybody was very helpful and nice; especially Sandy and Jai! They get out of their way to help you. I had a great stay. I would love to go back and stay longer. It is located 15 minutes outside of Ubud city center, which is not a bad thing since it is much peaceful here, they offer unlimited taxi service to the city though. Yoga classes by Sandy were great and massages by Poni were awesome! I was very touched to see the birthday wish on the floor when I returned to my room. Very sweet! It may be expensive (saw the comments by other reviewers), but it is worth every penny."

    "Naya Bbud is a place you would only think exists in a fantasy land. Maybe I was away with the fairies in my mind and spirit, I felt grounded and very much at home staying at Naya. Yes, like previous people have mentioned, the scenery and the retreat is 10/10. The food and service is comforting and really friendly. I'll be sure to return back to Naya as I can now say they are my friends and family. Yoga with Sandy is an experience. I now can take with me to further my yoga practice. She asked what I wanted to achieve and day-to-day she would cater to where or what I would like to work on. Her practice has inspired me mentally to understand my mind and body. Thank you, Sandy, for being a great yoga teacher. The time of my stay I encountered a gift I couldn't even imagine asking from the universe, Ambe Rays Divine Core Emergence. The three days of healing, guiding, and the pure essence of the course itself was something I cannot put into words. Please look into her courses on the internet and experience something you'll have for life. Thank you, Naya, for being my first ever place I've stayed in Bali. It was a treat and I'm truly blessed with the experience you have made effort to provide for your guests.Thank you!"

    "At Naya Ubud, Rebecca has created a unique environment to embrace the sacred within and without and experience deep soul connection. Away from the busyness of Ubud, Naya is a tranquil oasis of calm surrounded by lush vegetation, tropical flowers, and fruit and general gorgeousness. Rebecca has enhanced this incredible setting with her own style of beautification and there are statues and goddesses, water features, swing seats, and little secret hiding holes to be discovered everywhere you look. The yoga shala is beautifully placed to watch kingfishers and butterflies as you practice or you can swim in the pool with birds of paradise flowers trailing in the water. We fell asleep each night to a chorus of crickets and frogs in the rice fields and woke to a sunrise of birdsong. Naya staff were wonderful - the massages were really special, and the smoothies and juices and food was stunning - unfortunately everywhere else we ate after this was a disappointment - I think we were spoiled! I cannot recommend Naya highly enough - whether for a structured experience (we were there for Anodea Judith's 'immmersion') or just to relax and reconnect, this place really is heaven on earth - thanks Rebecca."

    "My husband and I stayed at the Naya for one week as part of a psychology and the chakras immersion conducted by Anodea Judith and organized by Brad Korpalski and Sasha Lang at Pure Immersions. It was the perfect location for the subject matter and you could tell that Rebecca, the owner, envisioned the Naya as a healing sanctuary for any weary visitor seeking rejuvenation and reflection. We had our yoga and teaching sessions right by the river and there was a stone steam grotto right beside it. The staff at the Naya, including Rebecca's son, Nathan, were all wonderful. Everything from the giant day bed swing in the foyer to the absolutely delicious healthy food to Rebecca's cute dog, Benji, made the Naya our home away from home. We also loved that there was no use of disposable plastic bottles. Free Wi-Fi is available in the foyer, but not so much in the rooms, which works out just fine because you'll want to disconnect from the outside world to get the most out of your experience in your rooms. We couldn't have imagined staying anywhere else for this retreat. Thank you Rebecca and the Naya team!"

    "Like stepping into a small heaven on earth the moment you enter the premises. There is beauty and personal touch in everything Rebecca (owner) has created this heavenly sanctuary for an amazing Bali experience. She shares her wisdom and experience through any event she brings and especially through teaching Kundalini yoga. A must: Rebecca's Kundalini class and Sandy's wonderful daily yoga classes in the fabulous outdoor yoga shala. Poni's relaxing spa treatments. Delicious meals - which they prepared vegan, per my special request. Leaving is the biggest challenge. I left knowing that I will return!"

    "Tucked away in the paddy fields, Naya resort was an escape into a nurturing space. The rooms are organically and beautifully designed, the staff always has a smile on their face, and I felt just at home. Communal breakfast table to meet other guest, catch up on emails, read a book, or veg out on the yummy pandan pancakes! The yoga shala is also such a beautiful venue. It was great having workshops being run at the resort, I could join in if I wanted. Thank you Rebecca and Sophie, and all the staff at Naya for giving me a well needed holiday! See you back there soon! "

    "My wife and I stayed at Naya Ubud back in April and had an absolutely wonderful stay. We have stayed in Ubud before at some of the higher end resorts, but after our stay at Naya, I don't think we need to look for another place! What I really enjoy about Naya is the fact that it is a homestay type villa with an excellent staff and magnetic owner. The place seemed to attract the most fascinating people from all walks of life and this made our experience so much richer.The food exceeded our expectations, which was a major plus since we've had some bad luck in the past.The property's location was perfectly situated minutes from the downtown area but just far enough off the road that you only heard the peaceful sounds of nature. The rice paddies around Naya seemingly stretch for miles. Incredible sunsets and sunrises, a true Ubud experience! "
