NUSA LEMBONGAN

This course will be held at Yoga Bliss Lembongan, located on Nusa Lembongan island, 30 minutes away from Bali by boat.  As a lot of travellers say Lembongan is similar to what Bali used to be 20 years ago. White sandy beach, blue clear water, quiet and a perfect spiritual place.  This island paradise begin 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, snorkelling, surfing, sunbathing and of course yoga.

THE SHALA

Yoga Bliss  is in the heart of Nusa Lembongan close to all commodities. The beach is only 5 minutes walk away, but as you will see everything is really close on the island as its size is approximately 7km². 

We have two beautiful shala: one indoor shala with air conditioning plus an equipment room (for our mountain of props) and an open air shala equipped with props and fan to enjoy the wind.  We will be using the indoor shala for the duration of the training.

FOOD

Food is important as it’s what keeping us functioning. We choose what we eat but sometimes we loose track and it can be hard in our busy world to take care of ourselves. What you eat affects your body and your mind in different way. If you choose the full pension package, Green Garden Restaurant will provide you 3 meals a day of healthy local food. The Restaurant is located just at the front of the shala. 

You will have the choice between:

– A package not including food to have the freedom to eat wherever you want

– A package including breakfast only or full pension to save you some times between classes (meat/fish, vegan and vegetarian options).

ACCOMMODATION

All the rooms at Green Garden Bungalows are on site and offer:

– Access to the swimming-pool

– Private terrace

– Private semi-outdoor bathroom with garden and hot water

– Air conditioning, mosquito net, WIFI, fridge, kettle and an umbrella. 

If you choose the shared room, you will share these facilities with one other student. In this last case, you will occupied a twin bed room and have of course your own bed. 

Your Teachers

Lisa Chamberlain and Gwendoline Ferreira are the led teachers of this 200hour Yoga Teacher Training Course.

Although Gwen and Lisa met just a few years ago, their journey through Yoga shares many similarities. Their current lives are vastly different from what they were a decade ago when, prior to leaving for what was meant to be only a few months of travelling, they had careers, relationships and family that they made the difficult decision to leave behind.
 
Throughout their individual journeys they have completely transformed their lives, and themselves, in order to live in accordance with their life’s purpose.  To say the journey has been easy would be erroneous, as they have certainly faced many challenges along the way. However, overcoming these obstacles has served to give them further clarity about their path, and their purpose, and the transparency has continued throughout their symbiotic relationship and development of Yoga Bliss.   
 
From irregular students to dedicated practitioners, to then teachers and then teacher trainers, they have had the honour of teaching thousands of students. They also firmly believe that the best teachers find themselves first a foremost a student, and so they have each completed dozens of relevant courses, and continue to do so on a regular basis.
 
Their many years of practice has provided them with the tools to become clear about their purpose: to help others find their own life’s purpose through the practice of Yoga.

I did the Sept 2017 YTTC. The Ashtanga teacher is the don of ashtanga, I love her! She gives it to you straight and is dedicated to creating solid teachers, which means she does give you some hard truths at times. I value this as I want to be able to represent ashtanga and yoga in general as a legitimate practitioner, especially as some courses seem to just give away the teacher training certification. She has a great cheeky sense of humour as she teaches and we all improved a lot. She taught an amazing anatomy course which she made funny and super interesting as it was yoga-specific. We had lots of teaching time (leading the morning practice and in the asana and yin labs) which meant we left feeling confident we could teach. As a dance teacher it also helped me feel confident on my feet when teaching a new ballet class as I’d had so much teaching practice. The second teacher’s sessions were hard work as it was warm in the afternoons, but she really powered through and kept us going. It took me a long time to accept the yoga philosophy and integrate it into my own Nichiren Buddhist beliefs but by the end I felt a real cohesion between the two, and I’m glad for that. As a vegan I did get bored of the menu, but to be honest I’m quite funny about food… There are other places on the island for fab vegan food so as long as you’re willing to treat yourself now and again you can switch it up. I’m really glad I chose this yoga alliance certified teacher training certification as meeting the two teachers and 15 other beautiful humans was a precious experience. You will be tired, but you will grow a lot. And snorkelling with manta rays was unforgettable – they’re sooo beautiful and majestic!

Every year for the past few years, I’ve followed a YTTC somewhere abroad. Some are good, some are less good :-). This year in July I participated in the YOGA BLISS 200 hour yoga teacher trainings. I choose this one, because everything was included: homestay, food (which was the best on the island) and training. But I got so much more than I expected. The yoga bliss TTC is by far the best yoga teacher trainings I’ve followed so far and is yoga alliance certified!! The teachers are very skilled and passionate about what they teach. They are two very real, authentic people, who are living their mission. And that is why this TTC is an absolute must do if you want to integrate yoga in your daily life. The teachers are such good teachers because they walk their talk. They will tell you all about yoga, but more important, you can see and feel what they are telling you. So yes they are yogini’s. But on top of that, they are walking their talk without forgetting to show their own vulnerability and flaws. By showing themselves as they are, they embody what yoga stands for: you don’t have to be perfect, just be you, as you are. And work from where you are, in this moment. This adds up why this teacher training certification is so good. It creates an environment of thrust were everyone can grow at his/her own pace. The teachers really team up for a unique balanced yin-yang approach. They’ve inspired the whole group to find our balance between “effort and surrender”. On our yoga mat. And in life. Because Yoga is life. PS: and of course Bali is great! Thank you so much for sharing your gift !!!

I have done several yoga teacher training before in different lineages, but this one by far is the most informed, content packed one yet! I was surprised by the level of content and knowledge given throughout this yoga alliance certified yoga teacher training. The Ashtanga teacher is an extremely competent and knowledgable teacher, I learnt so much from her, I’m very happy with the course. The structure of this 200 hour yoga teacher training is perfect, the shala is beautiful, the food in green garden is amazing, along with the staff. I really could not of wished for a better yoga teacher training Loved the mix of yin and yang and feel fully ready to teach now. Best registered yoga school yet! Thank you to both incredible teachers! And of course everyone at green garden for this amazing 200-hour teacher training. It was a pleasure!

Settled in the nusa Lembongan island. Away from the main road but close walk to the beach. Yoga bliss is little Oasis. Gwen and Lisa share the knowledge of yoga and all what is it. They guide you in helping you to understand the philosophy and anatomy of yoga. They open up a little door of knowledge behind yoga that makes you leave wanting to go deeper and deeper into this world of knowledge.​

Amazing experience! This really was life changing. The course content was really comprehensive and Lisa and Gwen are incredibly knowledgeable tutors. As well as it being a great academic experience it also provided a catalyst for personal growth and change. I was really impressed with the program and the level of expectation in the students. The small class size of 16 was great in promoting a feeling of family and unity. An awesome group of like minded people there for the same outcome. It was great to get training on both yin style and yang style yoga. I feel I have come away with a lot to offer as a yoga teacher. The philosophy component has changed my whole personal practice and how I feel about yoga day to day on and off the mat. The anatomy component was really comprehensive. Highly recommend this course :D​

Best decision ever made. The teachers are incredible at what they do. They gave me a whole new understanding of yoga and my personal practise, which I’ll be forever grateful for. The yoga teacher training program, the shala, the food and the homestay was all in high standard, and I couldn’t have asked for more. I feel ready to embrace my future as a certified yoga teacher with the new tools this yoga teacher training has given me. I can’t recommend this experience highly enough. I would do it all over again at any time.

I wholeheartedly recommend this yoga teacher training to anyone who is either wanting to deepen their practice or become a certified Yoga teacher. The content and schedule of the course exceeded expectations. The food was incredible (breakfast was my favourite – smoothie bowls and fresh fruit juices), and the teacher really goes out of her way to make sure you’re not only having a great experience, but also that you’re getting what you want from the course.yoga teacher training. Beyond the course, a snorkelling excursion and massage were included which were both fantastic experiences. I gained considerable knowledge about ashtanga and yin yoga as well as anatomy, pranayama, meditation, yoga philosophy, and so much more on a personal level. This was a life changing and personal growth experience for me and will never forget it.

I took part at Yoga Bliss’ yoga teacher training at Lembongan this year! Best choice ever! The teachers taught as everything we wanted to know about Yin & Yang practice. Philosophy and Anatomy were absolutely interesting and they made it easy for everyone to follow, without making any shortcuts. We also learned different Pranayama and Meditation techniques and involved them more and more in our daily practice, everyone in his/her own tempo and knowledge. Food was healthy, delicious and local, you can choose your own option, vegan, veggie or meat. Over all I had an amazing time, met amazing people and would do it absolutely again! Thanks again for this great yoga teacher training! Namaste!

I did a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Yoga Bliss. The location is amazing and hidden in a tiny banana tree jungle, away from the main road, a 10 mn walk to the beach. Friendly and attentive staff at the Green Garden Restaurant (family owned), yummy food & drinks. Attending a yoga teacher training was one of the best decision I’ve taken. Even if you don’t wish to teach after it and gain a yoga instructor certification, the amazing teachers will share their knowledge, stories with passion and help you on your spiritual journey. I highly recommend this place on beautiful, still quiet Nusa Lembongan Island.

I learned so much in this yoga alliance certified teacher training and loved every minute of it. It is as you may expect pretty intense, but to me it was actually liberating to just focus on one single thing for three weeks. Such a good and rewarding experience. Teachers are great, and the restaurant and shala nice! Food is good and healthy and the staff very friendly. I would recommend staying in the rooms of Yoga bliss, they are really nice. One of the best experiences in my life! Thank you !!!

This teacher training certification was such an amazing experience and truly surpassed my expectations. The day was split between yang style in the morning and yin in the afternoon which I found to be a perfect balance. The schedule is intense compared to an online yoga teacher course as it sums up to 12 hours of training a day and one day off a week, so if you plan to visit the island a bit, i would recommend coming a few days early or leaving a few days later after the yoga teacher training has ended. The teachers were excellent. The Ashtanga teacher is very knowledgeable in ashtanga which she gained from Mysore. The philosophy and Yin teacher is wonderful and would engage with us on various topics leading to interesting discussions. The shala is very peaceful and green, a perfect place to practice. Make sure you have enough experience in ashtanga (practicing the full primary) if you really want to teach otherwise you will have the choice to complete the program as a practitioner wanting to deepen his own practice. It is best to recognise where your practice is and be realistic with yourself if you can really teach at this stage being. You will also be enjoying fresh smoothie bowls everyday 🙂 This teacher training certification program is highly recommended for its price for value! Thank you for a wonderful experience I will never forget and hope to share what Ive learnt with others 🙂

Incredible journey, deepening my spirituality. This 200 hour yoga alliance teacher trainings was incredibly designed. The teachers were life changing spiritual teachers, who both gave me a fresh perspective on, of course, teaching yoga, but also my spirituality, daily practice, and…. well… my entire life! One teacher gave us very practical, detailed, straight forward techniques on how to properly practice AND teach. I feel completely ready, after taking this course to teach yoga to a group class. However, I did prep for this course three months in advanced. The biggest lesson one teacher taught me was as a yoga teacher is you can’t give away what you don’t have AKA you need to have a daily practice in order to teach yoga. This yoga alliance teacher training opportunity gave me the perfect place to deepen my own practice, and learn about my body, mind and spirit in the process, so i can help others on their spiritual path. She taught us Pranayama and meditation techniques, and again, gave us practical ways to incorporate it into our own practice (life changing). The teachers created a safe space for us to have deep, life changing discussions on philosophical topics involving the 8 limbs of yoga, where yoga came from, etc. & how to apply these philosophical topics to our life on and off the mat. She organized her teachings so well, we were able to ground really airy, “out there” ideas, and apply them to our actual lives. Something you cannot do from simply reading a book or with the online yoga teacher course, the discussions were so rich, and everyone in our class was constantly taking notes. Rare information, and energy exchanges, I doubt I will ever receive again. Learning yin from her was quite the experience, I also released so much trapped emotion simply during our daily yin practice. The setting is incredible, food- 5 stars hands down (SO DELICIOUS) and I would recommend getting a fan room. I didn’t have AC and was perfectly fine. Accommodation is simply quaint. No hot water but you have to remember, you’re in beautiful Bali. The daily flower mandalas were my favorite 😀 Thanks for and incredible experience Yoga Bliss!

Yoga bliss yoga alliance teacher training was the best decision for me. The balance of yang 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 teachers 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. The teachers 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!

The teachers set up a 200-hour yoga teacher training program which was really solid, yoga alliance certified, interesting, full of emotions, in a paradise place. I would definitely recommend doing your teacher trainings with these guys. They were sharing with us without counting, with all their heart. Thank you so much for that and I wish many more yogi will come and share that experience with them. If you are there for a short period, try the yoga classes at the shala as well 🙂 and end it with a dragond fruit broccoli juice… mmhhh!

They call them Yin and Yang, cause they are so perfect together that shouldn’t be compared to anything else. You learn how to teach, but most important, you learn how to face life. They create a safe environment for you to grow, to experiment with your mind and body, to explore your limits, to free your emotions, to fully absorb the knowledge, to feel confident in front of a class and to truly listen to your inner-self. You become a family with every single one sharing the experience and you wish you could stay in that bubble forever! But life goes on, and you finally understand YOGA 🙂

I felt compelled to write an honest recommendation for those wanting a legitimate Yoga Teacher Training in the styles of Yin & Yang Yoga. Your teachers at Yoga Bliss Lembongan, 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 and ready to be a yoga instructor. 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. 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. They were really cool, down-to-earth people who genuinely want to see their students succeed and become yoga instructor. 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.
