Dada searched for spiritual answers since his childhood and was finally introduced to holistic practices of yoga poses, meditation, Tantra, and Rajadhiraja yoga in 1993. In 1999, after several years of working in the corporate world, Dada’s strong vision for spirituality led him to a major turning point in his life when he decided to leave his job and become fully immersed in a devoted path of yoga. He went on to pursue training in India as a sannyasin, senior yoga monk. From then, he spent most of his time teaching yoga and meditation in Taiwan and Australia and eventually returned to Bali.
Ni Komang Puspa was born in 1976 in Karangasem, Bali. She has practiced the yoga and meditation since she was at the age of 16. She started her journey in 1994 to Jawa to deepen her knowledge about yoga. In 1995, she goes to Philippine taking five years training in Ananda Marga ashram in Davao to deepen her knowledge about the yoga philosophy, meditation, and the life experiences to live as a yogini. In 2000, she takes her final training in India until now she been teaching Yin, traditional Hatha, and meditation. She never stops learning.
Yovia started her yoga practice in Singapore about 10 years ago. It took only one teacher to spark something inside her. A teacher who can relate to the principles of yoga beyond asanas during class. Without the intention to teach, she brought with her a teaching certificate from Yoga Alliance back to Jakarta. But now the life of a corporate world could not stop her urge to share her knowledge. She started to share with her close circle, opportunities to teach yoga came like a flash flood. Now she believes in giving her all as a teacher and at the same time never stop learning.
Manohara is a certified Balinese yoga teacher who loves to teach people how to fly. Aerial yoga with Manohara will help you break down fear barriers you did not even know existed. Born in a village in Karangasem regency called Bungaya. I was living in the village with my family in a house surrounded by rice plantation. I spent most of my time alone because my parent and sibling were busy with their work. In that environment, I often wondered about myself and life. After finishing primary school, my family moved to Denpasar looking for a better living.

YOGA: Both yoga teachers Puspa and Yovia were amazing. The first week Puspa taught Hatha and the foundation of yoga. She is truly knowledgable and her years of practice and meditation really shows. She has a strong, energetic voice that really engaged me when she led meditations and savasana. Yovia taught Vinyasa the second week and is so knowledgable when it comes to creativity in flows, transitions, and engaging specific areas of the body. She will make you aware of muscles you didn't even know you had.
STAFF: The Staff is so friendly, welcoming, and always greet you with a smile. They are super responsive in the whats app chat if you need something.
ACCOMODATION: You get what you pay for. It's nothing super fancy but it's clean and average and didn't bother me. I stayed in a room with one other girl and it was plenty of room for both of us. We did have some geckos in our room a few nights but they're harmless and didn't bother us. I would suggest bringing your own towel as they only provide one thin/rough towel once every 3 days.
LOCATION: I stayed at Parahita Bona and the location was great. It was more rural and quiet with a view of rice fields from the shala but a close drive to Ubud.
STUDENTS: I was in a group of 17 girls "sisters" and they were honestly the best part. Making friendships with people all over the world, becoming a family for a month, having deep vulnerable conversations as well as corny inside jokes really made all of this worth while.

"Amazing experience; however, there is room for improvement "
Anything with Puspa or Yovia was amazing. I love vinyasa so the second week with Yovia was great. Puspa is an amazing, grounding teacher and perfect for the fundamentals of Hatha. I loved when she led the chanting and meditation for a few mornings in the third week, as well. I would have liked for her to lead more mornings!
Visiting the Foundation was one of the best days of the entire 25 days!! I enjoyed that so much. What incredible people!
The site location was very remote and beautiful. With a bit of an upgrade, it could be really nice.
All the staff- amazing people, always smiling and trying to help! They are just great and extremely committed. I know they are working so hard to improve Parahita every day.
Of course, my fellow ‘sisters’. There were 17 of us- all women, all ages and all backgrounds. Yet, we came together and learned from each other for a whole month. I will never forget what I learned from this!

"I gained more from this then I ever thought would be possibl"
I loved everything.
From singing, chanting and meditation with Didi in the mornings, there was no better way to start the day.
Puspa and Mono were fab asana teachers and Puspa was there for each and every one of us during our stay, she’s an incredible women. Mono’s smile and jokes will stay with me forever.
Dada told the best stories and I can’t wait for him to write a book, he’s classes left me wanting to keep learning.
Dias was incredible and we were so lucky to have her teaching us anatomy. She made a subject I was nervous about engaging and fun.
The team working non stop with smiles on their faces, you could tell they adored what they do and treated us all like families.
Thank you all so much 🙏
from Canada, September 2019
"Life changing 💫"
I loved that it was not just about asanas it was about the philosophy,the anatomy, the spiritual side of yoga. How to eat love and practice as a true yogi ❤️ Best experience staff was also incredible 😘

"Life Changing YTT"
What Parahita offers is unlike any other YTT retreat/corse .... what they have designed is absolutely life changing !
Yes ur brain is on overload during the 200hours (learning so much in a short time) INTENSE means INTENSE 🤯🤪
but the LOVE n support u get from each member of staff is unreal .
Everyone single staff member love what they are doing , and every single one of them want to help u in anyway they can. Parahita is truly a family filled with love that want to help as many people as they can to learn to live happier healthier lives.
I will definitely be back for more corses (always growing) but maybe I will bring peanut butter , cheese n extra eggs for myself haha.

I spent 25 days in Parahita doing 200H yoga teachers training and I am forever grateful for each and every person in Parahita group. The place itself is just so pretty, with a lots of trees and flowers and they take a really deep care of the enviroment there, everything is clelan and unbelivably beautiful. We had passionfruits in the yard!! The place is extremly beautiful and the stuff of Parahita let's you teach and get familiar with traditional Balinese culture - they prepare beautiful offerings for gods and you get to see those beautiful people of Parahita dressed in traditional dresses offering those treats everyday. Parahita stuff are just so lovely!! They're full of enthusiasm, doing a great job finding suitable solutions for each and every student individually, everything they do is done by love and care. They are friendly, helpful, funny and lovely.
Teachers in Parahita are such a beautiful, simply amazing people: super professionals and what's the most important in teacher - enthusiasts about sharing their knowledge; supportive and demanding, deeply inspiring, combining teaching technics of asanas with yoga philosophy so smoothly and in such an interesting way that you want to listen to them forever. Thank you all, teachers and Parahita family for making my time so beautiful and I'm looking forward seeing you all when I'm in Bali!!
from Ireland, September 2019
I really enjoyed and benefited from my yoga teacher training with Parahita in Bali. The teachers were genuinely interested in us and our progress. The staff at the hotel did everything they could to meet our needs within their capabilities. There was excellent staff communication for airport pickups and also prior to booking the course when I was messaging back and forth. Meeting the Parahita community was the highlight, here we met with members of the community who have a variety of special needs. They were so kind and welcoming and we spent time getting to know them. It is really admirable how Parahita have created an inclusive community. I would definitely recommend the Parahita community to complete your yoga training, ensure you know where you will be going so that you know what to expect. After that let go of expectations and enjoy the experience and process of yoga teacher training. You won't regret it.

"Thank you for the fruitful journey :)"
I am so glad that I made decision to do the 200-hour YTT programme with Parahita - they are simply the best! The programme was intensive, challenging yet very fulfilling. We started every morning with chanting and singing, and then we filled the day with asana practice, new knowledge on yoga, super delicious food and lots of fun and laughters! The teachers here are very experienced and knowledgeable, and I liked that they taught you how to teach yoga since the very beginning of the programme. The staff at Parahita were very attentive, and they made you feel like home the moment you arrived. Parahita has partnered up with a local NGO that supports people with physical disabilities, and I really liked this idea of "Growing together, inspiring each other" and giving back to the community. I would like to thank Parahita once again for this enriching and fruitful experience :)

"Loved it !! "
Overall i’d say that i’ve Loved the 25days programme ! It was intensive but super well organised so it helps to get a positive experience! What i’ve loved : to be far away from distractions; the structure of the training; the quality of the teachers; the support of the staff; the amazing ambiance with the other students (we have a lot of group projects); the FOOD (oh-my-god !!! I believe that was my main positive surprise !! ); the dogs ;) (especially Evan!); the facilities (big room, swimming pool,sauna, pool)
At the end of the programme I feel confident to teach, which I’d never have believed before I arrive.
Thanks a lot guys !!!! Puspa, Dada, Didi, Yovia, Dris, Mano, Alit, Findi, Devi, Agung and all the other members of staff who have been so great with us >> I’ll never forget you !

"Fantastic people, positive attitudes, & purposeful mission!"
I loved the course and would highly recommend! It’s a fairly new company, so they’re still doing a bit of test and learn but are growing rapidly and have an amazing community of instructors, staff, and previous students. The course is all-inclusive which makes it quite cost effective, and accommodations and food are great (for rural Bali). They have a few locations (all in Bali at the moment) - this one is in Gianyar and was in a remote villa allowing you to focus solely on the course, but they also have one closer to Ubud center if you're looking to be surrounded by other people/activities. Do note that this course is intensive, so whatever time isn't spent practicing yoga, learning in class, or bonding with other students is best used for rest! I am so excited to see this value-driven company grow and expand, thank you for such a great experience <3

"Yoga Training in Paradise"
Parahita was welcoming from the start in a perfect location that was removed from distractions. Staff was very attentive and accommodating to many individual needs. Teaching staff was very knowledgeable with high expectations and positive encouraging feedback to help us grow. The open air studio was wonderful for connecting with nature during meditation and inspiring views during physical challenges. The meals were beautifully presented and very tasty with quite a variety of flavors accommodating vegetarian and vegan diets along with other specific food restrictions.

"More than I could have every asked for or expected! "
From the second I got picked up at my previous villa to being dropped off in a Uluwatu this group is nothing but extremely welcoming and positive! They truly surpass their goal of making everyone involved from students through teachers, to staff and even puppies feel like family. The course structure emptied my heart of the old and filled it with new. I increased my practice 10 fold. Learned aspects I never knew were apart of yoga. Was encouraged to grow in many ways every day personally, physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. And was welcome to make the best lifelong friends I’ve ever had (both students and staff) highly recommending these people can’t even do it justice for me.

"Love the experience, truly life changing for me."
The positive environment, delicious vegetarian meals
from Hong Kong, May 2019
The Parahita staff does an exquisite job of making you feel part of the family and works towards making you feel at home during the entire program. Their pride and love for the work they do really shows everyday. The property is beautiful, overlooking the mountains and rice fields. The program is intensive and well-formatted to optimize your understanding of all topics covered. The teachers are inspirational, patient, and highly knowledgable. My time at Parahita can best be summed up as a genuine, heart-filled experience that I feel lucky to have been a part of and will never forget. I have left with amazing friendships, memories, and a strong confidence to explore teaching opportunities for the future. I love Parahita!!

The instructors, staff, and owners did everything to try to fulfill everyone’s needs. They were all very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I was extremely happy with every aspect of the program.
from Netherlands, March 2019
Was really nice to come to know that part of the money i payed for the course is used for a foundation for disable people. In the future their goal is to run a foundation where everyone is included, live independent and feel usefull.
In also liked to experience the balinese culture with their rituals and traditions.

La formation proposée par Parahita est vraiment exceptionnelle, voici une petite liste des choses que j’ai particulièrement appréciées :
- Les professeurs sont investis et super qualifiés, vous allez apprendre plein de choses !
- Tous les matins, réveil avec Didi pour 45 minutes de chants/méditation..
- Tous les repas sont inclus
- L’argent que vous donnez à Parahita pour votre formation est en partie reversé à une association pour les personnes qui souffrent d’handicap. Une journée de la formation est consacrée à la visite de cette association :)
- Immersion dans la culture Balinaise à travers différentes cérémonies
- L’équipe de Parahita est juste exceptionnelle 😍

Les lieux sont agréables, la nourriture est fantastique (chaque régime particulier est pris en compte), les professeurs sont vraiment à l'écoute et géniaux, le staff est vraiment au top, ... tout est fait pour que l'on se sente à la maison ! Il ne s'agit pas uniquement d'une formation de professeur de yoga ... on y trouve une famille, des amis, ... on plonge en profondeur dans ce qu'est vraiment le yoga : l'union... Il s'agit d'apprendre, de grandir, de partager, de comprendre, d'accepter, ... Merci Parahita! Thank you everybody!

"Yoga with Balinese Experience"
I'm very happy to have joinied the program. The place is very calming and perfect for Yoga. The food was great, all vegetarian and vegan menu with local ingredients. The staffs are very kind and friendly, also loved to smile! They treated us like family. But what I like the most is the Balinese atmosphere. The retreat that mixed with Balinese culture. Very unique and unforgettable and I highly recommended this program for people who would like to enjoy a retreat in Bali!
from Indonesia, January 2020
"A Wonderful Experience"
Firstly, the location was so perfect for doing yoga. Its calming, and quite place yet not far from the centre of Ubud (takes 20 mins more or less by motorcycle). So, I really enjoy doing yoga and I'm happy to joining this program.The staff, they are so friendly and greet you with their happy smiles :) like.. everyday. They treat us like family even we just met in a short time.
TL;DR the program was great, and I highly recommended this!

"Affordable price, and great experience"
I highly recommend this yoga program. The class was very interactive, the contents presented were very easy to understand and the teacher was very friendly. wonderful staff, very accommodating and happy to help in any way they could. Room was very clean and food was very good. The most memorable thing is when enjoying live painting and music with Parahita’s Family who is a person with disabilities. It’s extraordinary for Parahita besides providing attractive Yoga services they also have a social impact by empowering people with disabilities to remain productive.

"An amazing, heart opening and transformative experience!"
Parahita Yoga Bali, what can I say! I love everyone from the Parahita family and everything about my experience. From the moment I arrived I felt so welcomed by the whole team who were so attentive, friendly and accommodating and still remain as attentive after I have left. For me, the YTT was an incredible experience and one that I will remember for the rest of my life, I made so many great experiences, memories and friends. The actual teaching was great and I learned so much that has improved my way of life and my own personal practice. I now feel inspired to teach and pursue the journey of sharing what I have learned and also continuing to learn about the journey of life through yoga. If you are thinking of doing a YTT then Parahita is definitely one I would recommend for a well rounded experience. The staff is just amazing! I miss Findi and Hendra so much they were always there ready to help us! And Puspa and Yovia are just amazing as teachers, they both inspired me so much! And if you like puppies, Ivan is one of the cutest things you will ever see! If I could I would do it all over again. So much love for my YTT experience and family, baba nam kevalam!

"Parahita August 2019 "
I can only recommend Parahita 200hours ytt.
This training class is more than I imagined.
The team of teachers are competent, patient and passionate they do not just learn this discipline they themselves embody the state of mind of yoga.
The team who also put this training in place are just brilliant always ready to help and arrange us.
Every day we were spoiled by the cooks who made us discover new recipes every day.
I went to Bali to do 25 days of Teacher Training Yoga classes and I left with a superb human experience and a spiritual family.
Parahita Familly thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Staff were warm and hospitable and saw to our every need. The facilities were really good for the price paid (daily turnover, airconditioned, hot water). daily yoga classes were also well paced to accommodate yogis of different levels. and the instructor was very clear in her instructions.
from Thailand, May 2019
I’ve enjoyed every aspect of this ytt. The staff is so friendly, everything is well organized and the facilities in Bona are beautiful. Our teachers, Mano and Puspa, guided us with love and patience and I’ve learned so much. Findi is the master of organization and there wasn’t a request that she didn’t fulfill. I’ve found a second family here!

"Retreat with intention"
The staff at parahita are all so lovely and humble. It's like you are treated as part of their family. The care and attention I was shown by the yoga teacher Devi was amazing and I highly recommend her class. Alit was also extremely warm and helpful. The program runs smoothly and is flexible to your level. If you're looking for a heartfelt experience then this retreat is for you. You will walk away with the feeling that the staff want you to be happy and nothing else. There is great intention behind this retreat.

"Life changing experience"
One of the main reasons why I highly value Parahita is because it's not a money driven school as most of businesses are in our days. People working and teaching there are genuinely caring and they actually invest the profit in the community growth, supporting the less fortunate. It's a very authentic experience. Apart that in one month I have learned so much and feel ready to share my knowledge with others. It was an intense practice everyday in a very supportive and loving environment.
