Being a yoga teacher means orienting your life towards your highest potential. It is a commitment to not only yourself, but to others as well. This training has been designed for those who believe, feel, and know that yoga is more than the physical practice of asana.
Yoga Bliss' intention is to properly train yoga students to become strong, confident, and knowledgeable teachers. In addition to all of the relevant information about yoga philosophy, theory, and teaching skills, they put a strong emphasis on developing your personal practice.
Thus, your training will be oriented toward deepening your own practice while showing you how to teach others. By the end of the course, you will be able to confidently teach a range of classes including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Power, Yin, and Restorative yoga.
You will be discussing how the bones, muscles, joints, and all of the body systems interact and work together to support and maintain your physical bodies.
The morning practice will be a yang class in the style of either Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power, or Hatha yoga, with a focus on building strength and endurance. The afternoon practice will be a Yin or Restorative yoga class to restore physical balance, gain flexibility, and calm the mind.
Learning to align yourselves correctly in poses keeps you stable and safe from injury while maximizing the benefits of each pose. Yoga Bliss will guide you in how to correctly align yourself and your students in postures and will show different variations to effectively teach all levels. The teaching of hands-on adjustments will also be discussed so that students can be physically guided into better alignment, depth, and relaxation in postures.
Yoga Bliss will introduce you to multiple meditation techniques to help you establish a daily practice.
You will dive into the history and philosophy of yoga and how this ancient tradition has developed from its strong Hindu mythological influence to the more westernized version you often experience today. You will explore excerpts from some of the most influential yoga texts, including the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Bhagavad Gita, Heart of Yoga, and Light on Yoga.
You will be taught different techniques to control the prana (life force) within each and every one of you. Different pranayama techniques have different effects on the body, mind, and energy system. Some are more activating and some more calming. You will learn how to incorporate pranayama into your everyday life.
To teach yoga authentically, you must first have an established personal practice. During this intensive course, you will practice many different styles of yoga, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Power, Restorative, and Yin yoga.
Do you feel ready to take the next step and wish to become a certified yoga teacher? Yoga Bliss recommends you to have at least one year of regular and dedicated yoga asana practice and to have at least six months of Ashtanga yoga practice.
Do you wish to develop your own practice, learn more about yoga and all its aspects, but you are not ready or do not wish to become a certified yoga teacher yet? This course is also for you. It can be difficult to find the time and place where to learn and practice more intensively than drop-in classes, so this is an opportunity to do so without expectation of becoming a yoga teacher.
If this is your wish, Yoga Bliss recommends you to have practiced any style of yoga for at least six months. They will work with you to develop a daily asana, pranayama, and meditation practice that best suits you.

The venue for this course will be located in the heart of Lembongan island, close to all commodities. As a lot of travelers say, Nusa Lembongan is like Bali used to be 20 years ago. This paradise island has become a must visit, being away from the traffic jam or the hawkers of Bali.
The island has white sandy beaches and clear blue waters. It is a quiet and perfect spiritual place. The beach is nearby and you will see that everything is really close on this island, as its size is approximately eight square kilometers.
During this course, Yoga Bliss will serve you three raw and vegan meals a day from their Ahimsa Restaurant, located in the same place as the shala. Food is important as it is what keeps you functioning.
You choose what you eat, but sometimes you lose track and it can be hard in your busy world to take care of yourselves. What you eat affects your body and your mind in a different way.
During your training with Yoga Bliss, you will have the time to explore new food, new ways of eating and cleansing. It will always be a choice coming from you and you will not be asked to follow a particular path.
In order to relax in Nusa Lembongan, things to do are diving, snorkeling, surfing, hiking, and sunbathing.
