Deepen your relationship with your yoga practice, gain the skill set you'll need to teach others, and change the course of your life in paradise!

Yoga Bliss course offers different type of accommodation depending on your budget and needs. Accommodations will be on site bungalows and other homestay located within 5 minutes walk. All the selected places offer big and cosy rooms with double or twin bed and Ac or fan depending on your booking, WiFi and private bathroom.
Your training will be oriented to deepen your own practice while showing you how to teach others.
The morning practice will always be an Ashtanga Led class focusing on building strength and flexibility while the afternoon will be a Yin or Restorative practice to restore physical balance and calm the mind.
You will be introduced meditation techniques from the Hatha yoga and Tantric traditions.
You will discuss how the bones, muscles, joints, and all of the systems of the body interact in various yoga poses, and how they are physically and energetically beneficial to us.
You will be taught different techniques to control the prana that rides on the breath. Different pranayama creates different effects on the body, mind, and energy system - some more activating and some more calming. You will be using pranayama in conjunction with the flow of poses, in addition to using it as a lead-in to meditation.
Learning to align yourself correctly in poses keeps you safe from injury and stable, while experiencing the benefits. You will be informed on how to correctly align yourself and your students in postures by teaching different variations to effectively teach to all levels. The teaching of hands-on adjustments will also be discussed so that students can be physically guided into better alignment, more depth and relaxation in postures.
You will touch on the connections between Eastern philosophy, Hindu mythology, and yoga. You will be reading from Yoga Mala and The Heart of Yoga as supplemental texts to your practice. These texts will be the basis of most of your discussions that relate to all of the aspects of the course as a whole.
Ayurveda, also known as the sister science of yoga, will be introduced as a complimentary technique. It has a lot to do with balancing your own individual constitutions with the use of herbs, better dietary choices, and even your asana, pranayama, and meditation practices to create better overall health, radiance, and peacefulness.

In case of aiming to be certified as a 200-hour yoga teacher, they recommend having at least six months of Ashtanga yoga practice.

Yoga Bliss is located on Lembongan island, 30 minutes away from Bali. As a lot of travelers say, Lembongan is like Bali used to be 20 years ago. White sandy beach, blue clear water, quiet, and a perfect spiritual place. This island paradise begins to be a must to visit from Bali away from the traffic jam or the hawkers. A perfect place to relax, where the only things to do are diving, snorkeling, surfing, hiking, sunbathing, and yoga.
The shala is in the heart of Lembongan close to all commodities. The beach is only five minutes away, but as you will see everything is really close on the island as its size is approximately eight square kilometers.
During your training, you will have the time to explore new food, new way of eating, and cleansing. It will always be a choice coming from you and you will not be asked to follow a particular path.
You will be served three meals a day of healthy local food at Yoga Bliss' Green Garden Eco Warung, located at the same place with the shala. You will have the choice between a vegan, a vegetarian, and a meat option.
Included in this course is one Balinese spa treatment at Yoga Bliss' spa partner on the island.
