    During your course you will stay at a homestay in a shared or private room. This amazing quiet place is just 5 minutes walk from Yoga Bliss and offers nice room with twin or double large bed, AC or fan, private bathroom and wifi.

    Your training will be oriented to deepen your own practice while showing you how to teach others.

    Asana

    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.

    Meditation

    You will be introduced meditation techniques from the Hatha yoga and Tantric traditions, as well as Vipassana meditation from the Buddhist tradition.

    Anatomy and physiology

    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.

    Pranayama

    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.

    Asana and teaching lab

    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.

    Philosophy, texts, and concepts

    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

    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.

    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.

    • Review by Jenna Willingham from Nusa Lembongan, Bali

      "Yoga bliss teacher training was the best decision for me. The balance of Ashtanga and yin yoga just works so perfectly. You are really given two sides to yoga, two different paths and outlooks on yoga. Which I think is amazing for your first teacher training if you are unsure which path you wish to take or where you stand. Both Gwen and Gina are so helpful, informative, passionate and easy going, which really makes the three weeks a bit easier. It is definitely an intensive training though, so be prepared for that. My experience at yoga bliss truly helped me find my path as a yogi and pushed me in the direction i need to go. Gwen and Gina gave me the knowledge, confidence and encouragement I really needed to send me on my path! I can't wait to come back for a class. Thank you Yoga Bliss!"

    • Review by Sarah Weitenberg from Gold Coast, Australia

      "I felt compelled to write an honest recommendation for those wanting a legitimate Yoga Teacher Training in the styles of Ashtanga and Yin Yoga. Your teachers at Yoga Bliss Lembongan, Gwen (Ashtanga) and Gina (Yin), who share the load of teaching Anatomy, Adjustments, Pranayama, Meditation and Philosophy, are two of the most genuine, knowledgeable, skilful, empowered women I have ever met. I honestly feel so blessed and humbled to have undertaken this training under their guidance. I personally have travelled to Rishikesh, India and completed a Hatha Yoga 200hrYTTC 2 years prior to this and although it was an incredible experience, I really did not feel ready to go straight into teaching after the course (this was Yoga Alliance Certified too so it just goes to show how pointless that really is). I was pleasantly surprised with the structure of the course offered at Yoga Bliss Lembongan and the content covered, as it truly sets you up with the teaching skills and knowledge to be able to walk out of the course and into being the teacher in your own classroom. If this is what you’re after, do this course with Gwen and Gina. I recommend you brush up on your memorisation of the Ashtanga Primary Sequence, you bring a tolerance for flies and bugs (there is bug spray available there) as it is an open air Shala and you are in the tropical climate of Indonesia. Bring a big enough notebook to take down all the information shared in each class, and enough pens to get you through. They provide very liveable accommodation a few minutes walk to the yoga Shala and meat, vegetarian and vegan options for food, cooked and served by a loving local Indonesian family. There are many other places to eat for super cheap all very close to Yoga Bliss too, if you would like a larger variety. The island itself is beautiful, we went for sunset swims every single day at Scooby Doo Beach opposite the street that the Yoga School is on, it is hot and humid in Indonesia so keep that in mind – again, you are in the tropics! There are no mosquito nets on the windows of accommodation so for a pleasant stay, I recommend getting a room with air conditioning. You get Sundays off and Saturday afternoons too, use this time to explore the island by hiring a scooter, for ultra cheap massages, and for study to prepare you for the week to come. I honestly loved this training and the whole 3 week adventure and would highly recommend it if everything I've mentioned here is of interest to you!"

      "My Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Bliss was great! It was physically demanding and challenged me each day but I think that gives the course credibility. I was able to learn a lot from both instructors, Gwen and Gina. They were really cool, down-to-earth people who genuinely want to see their students succeed. The accommodations were nice as well. I had a room to myself which had a queen-sized bed, air-conditioning, and was located within close walking distance of Yoga Bliss. The food could be hit-or-miss some days because the staff's English is limited, which made it difficult to make any modifications our order. It was delicious nonetheless and the staff were all so adorable so it was never a big deal. "

      "I had a great time at the surf and yoga retreat organized by Yoga Bliss.The studio is peaceful and beautiful, surrounded by trees and palms.The classes are very high quality, even if the schedule changes every week so you don't really know what you will get during your retreat.Both Gwen and Gina are amazing teachers, very gifted indeed!I had a great time, and I'd suggest the retreat with them to anyone's looking for a week on a small island focusing on well-being."

    • Review by Stacey Magee from New Zealand

      "Yogabliss, it's pretty simple, do yourself a favour and BOOK WITH THEM! Gwen and Gina make the experience like a trip with friends. I travel a lone a lot and although I am a complete beginner, really wanted to go on a yoga retreat. Gwen is the organising force behind Yogabliss and with her wealth of knowledge and local connections, you will have the best options with the best providers on the island of Nusa Lemnbongan. I opted to do the yoga and surf retreat as I am also a beginner at surfing, I met with Gwen on arrival (after a delay which they also helped me manage) and went through what activities I wanted to do on which days, treatments at Kemilau Spa, surfing with the Newbro surf school (absolute legends) and of course, as much yoga as you can shake your drink bottle at with Gwen and Gina."

      "The shala that they hold their lessons in is so perfect for me it was one of the best parts of the trip. The Green Cafe offered up easily the best breakfasts on the island, their Sunrise bowl being my absolute favourite, couple with the beautiful yoga space, this place is relaxing and peaceful. Surrounded by bush, birds and various animals, while attending a Yin yoga session one morning it poured with rain on and off, after the rain stopped all of the birds started singing, I was lying there thinking this is it, this is absolute bliss, therefore Yogabliss is aptly named."

      "Trying different styles of yoga was a little intimidating for me as a lot of people attending were devoted yoga goers, however, Gwen and Gina always gave me options and helped me with poses, I loved every minute of it. The meditation session with Gina followed by a Yin class is easily one of my favourite memories of this trip."

      "I was lucky enough to be placed at Hokita homestay with the lovely Niko Wayan. Having grown up on Lembongan, he has a fantastic network of friends and had endless suggestions on activities, places to eat, things to see and do. I loved every minute of my time staying on the island with Yogabliss and cannot wait to organise a trip back."

      "The people I met, the places I ate, the little missions on the motorbike, the luxurious treatments I had at Kemilau, this is the ultimate in relaxation in it's most basic form. I loved the freedom of not having a schedule but being able to book whatever whenever. I do not enjoy regimented/planned travel and trips therefore Yogabliss was the perfect option for me. Beautiful people, beautiful surroundings, so much happiness in one place."

      "Thanks you so much to everyone involved."

    • Review by Rowan Coombe from Lembogan, Bali, Indonesia

      "So I have never tried yoga before, and didn't ever think I would but after a long chat one evening with Gwen (the very impressive instructor) I decided to give it a go. I went for the ashtanga class, not sure if that's how it's spelled. I was very pleasantly surprised I first thought it would just be slow stretching, but how wrong was I. Gwen had told me it would be physical but manageable and she wasn't wrong. I was sweating in minutes and enjoying myself lots to think about but she explained it so well starts hard finishes very calm. I was in a class where an instructor was present too and they had a great time! They said they had never sweated so much! It not only felt like a workout but also like a beneficial experience! I ended up going 5 times and on my 5th visit I could actually touch my head on my knee which was shocking but delighting too!. The place is big airy and peaceful definitely worth a visit no matter what level you are!"

A perfect way to de-stress. Everyone is really friendly and happy to help out."

      "I went to have yoga classes at Yoga Bliss a few times, and I spend really good time. The place is really nice and quiet, on the middle of the jungle, there is palm trees all around, birds sings. Kind of oasis full of peace. The two teachers, Gwen and Gina, are really friendly and help me a lot to have good positions and develop my technique as I am beginner. They take time to teach me a lot, and always come to correct me when I needed. After class, I could also hanging around at the vegan café, and have a delicious smoothie bowl, topped with seeds and cashews! I can only recommend this place for relax and chill around!"

Having practiced other styles of yoga but never Ashtanga (the class we attended), Gwen was able to provide various options and cues for poses we could not do with or were unsure about. Highly recommended with an enjoyable and easy going atmosphere."
