While India is the birthplace of yoga and meditation, Bali is the confluence of yoga communities from all over the world. Ubud, the yoga center of the island, is dotted with teacher training schools with Bali Yoga School being the preferred choice of students in many cases.
If you plan to become a yoga teacher or just acquire the ancient knowledge and technique to stay fit, healthy, and wise Bali Yoga School offers various short and long-term courses to suit your needs. Since yoga is much more than just physical postures, the School lays a lot of focus on the yoga philosophy that gave rise to the life-transforming technique.
The experienced teachers guide the learners throughout the course and assist in their inward journey — knowing the body and mind, their connection, and how knowledge leads to liberation. As every person is different, so are their goals in life. Though various teacher training courses could be only a stepping stone to the long path of yoga, a good beginning makes a good ending.
Given the time constraints and busy life, the School has adopted a flexible approach in allowing the learners to complete the course in two or more semesters at their convenience. In all cases, certificates are awarded after completion of the course.
Bali Yoga School ensures that various forms of yoga — Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Pranayama, and Meditation are taught in their purest form as passed on by the great saints and seers with only minor modifications to adjust them to new conditions. Aerobic and power yoga have also been made part of the course to make the learning contemporaneous.
Following the intense training on postures, there are separate alignment and adjustment classes where teachers make sure that the asanas are being practiced in the way they should be. Students are initiated into different meditation techniques to ensure that they follow the method which suits them the best.
