The course will cover chanting, meditation, pranayama, and asana, in addition to yogic philosophy, physical and energetic anatomy, ethics, and the business of yoga.

Yoga

Sadhana yoga means yoga as a spiritual practice. Two variations of asana practice are offered that are a blend of various traditions. The Vinyasa flow practice is derived mainly from Ashtanga yoga and is a fast-paced flow.

The second is a Hatha practice derived from Sivananda tradition, which is more meditative with longer held poses. Both sequences together provide you with a great foundation to build any type of yoga class upon. After graduation, you will receive a 200-hour yoga teacher certificate, will be able to register with Yoga Alliance, and teach anywhere in the world.

    "I got into yoga because of the physical aspect, but I came to Bali and Sadhana Yoga School to learn yoga and got so much more about it. I learned a lot about my spirituality, made deep connections with beautiful people, it was a great immersion program, and I don’t think I could have experienced this anywhere else."

    "Sadhana Yoga School is truly is a well-rounded way to learn and understand not only what yoga does for you physically but spiritually, consciously, and wholly for the complete mind, body, soul experience. I recommend this course for anyone embarking on the path of wanting to not only learn how to teach yoga, but also develop a compelling understanding of the ancient principles of yoga that make it what it is today."

    "I am half-way through my eight-month teacher training program and I can already say it has been life-changing. Each monthly weekend is so rich and full of inspiration, knowledge, and peace. I love seeing the path that lies ahead begin to unfold and thanks to this program and the wonderful facilitators, I am inspired on a daily basis. Namaste."

    "This program is, without a doubt, life-changing. Not only do you leave with an immense awareness and new understanding of a yogic lifestyle, but also you yourself are positively and spiritually transformed. I expected the anatomy course and the asana workshops but I was unaware how much of a supportive and therapeutic community I was entering. I will forever feel connected to the sangha we created, to Bethel Farms for being a true haven, and to Sadhana Yoga School for giving me the skills to further pursue my dreams. It's by far the best thing I have ever done."

    "I came in looking for more spirituality and I found it, it was inside of me, I just wasn't looking. I am finding out all sorts of things about myself, and with theses new findings, I feel I am becoming much more authentic, much more at peace with who I am. I feel like my yoga classes are much more alive, have more energy, and it feels good!"

  • Review by Emily Rendinaro

    "For me, it has been an on-going cycle of learning, changing, and growing. I'm learning one lesson after another and without yoga, I would be lost from my path. My body craves the breath, the practice. Yoga and meditation have shown me many different worlds, but the most beautiful part is we are all connected are all one."
