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.
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 and an equipment room (for our mountain of props) and an open air shala equipped with props and fan to enjoy the wind
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)
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.
What is a 300-Hour Teacher Training?
Students and teachers who are serious about yoga and who crave more knowledge will often decide to pursue education beyond their 200hour teacher training. There are a variety of different areas and styles you can train in as continuing education, but in order to qualify as a 300-hour, the content needs to be “advanced”. That means that it goes beyond what information would be covered in a 200hour, entry-level training. Therefore, a 300-hour training is not just 1.5 times the training hours, it is an entirely advanced training; from advanced asana, pranayama and meditation techniques, to exploring advanced philosophy, methods of teaching, anatomy, and hands-on adjustments. A 300-hour training will enable you to list yourself as a 500hour teacher, the highest level that is actually recognized by Yoga Alliance.
Why should I choose Yoga Bliss’ 300-hour Teacher Training?
What makes this training different than the rest? We put unparalleled emphasis on helping each individual student succeed. Instead of providing the exact same curriculum and path for all students, we spend a great deal of time supporting you on your own individual journey; in helping you to discover and hone what makes you unique so that you may stand out as a Yoga teacher and develop a dedicated student base. Right from the very first week you will have one-on-one time with our teachers so that you can explore and develop in the areas that you are most drawn toward or want to grow in.
Can I take this training if I hold a 200-Hour degree from another yoga school?
Absolutely! Regardless of what style(s) you have trained in before, as long as you have completed a 200hr training, Yoga Bliss welcomes you to our 300hour advanced program. Our teachers have trained in a variety of different styles and lineages, and so they are well-equipped to support you in whatever style of Yoga you wish to teach. If you did not complete your 200hour with Yoga Bliss, you will need to complete our online anatomy course prior to attending. Pre-training access to our anatomy course is covered by your tuition fees, if you’d like lifetime access there will be an additional fee.
What is the base level of knowledge required for this 300-Hour Training?
Most 200-Hour programs cover the same foundational topics, including some Yogic philosophy, teaching methodology, anatomy and physiology, and a focus on at least one Yoga style (ie Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, or Yin Yoga). The anatomy taught in most 200hour trainings is largely insufficient, especially considering that the majority of students end up teaching asana, which is of course a physical practice. If you completed your 200hour training with a school other than Yoga Bliss, you will be required to complete our online anatomy course prior to attending this training to ensure your anatomy knowledge is up-to-date. Pre-training access to our anatomy course is covered by your tuition fees, if you’d like lifetime access there will be an additional fee.
What are the requirements for registering as a 500hr teacher?
This course fulfils 270 of the 300 hours required in order to attain your certification and thus register with Yoga Alliance as a 500hr teacher. If you are already a 200RYT with the Yoga Alliance, upon receiving your certificate you may upgrade your registration with the Yoga Alliance to a 500RYT. The additional 30 hours will be a project that is required to be submitted and will be assessed in order for you to receive your certificate. We will provide you the project guidelines at the beginning of your course, so you can choose to work on it throughout and complete it during the training, or submit it after you’ve left. There is no time limit.
Can I take this course for personal reasons or just to deepen my yogic knowledge?
Of course! Fulfilling the above requirements are if you would like to register yourself as a 500RYT with Yoga Alliance. You may choose to forego or delay certification and simply enjoy this deep, enriching experience.
Keep in mind that Yoga Alliance is a business, they are simply a registry that is optional for Yoga teachers to pay to join. Yoga Alliance is not sanctioned by any local, state, or federal government. Paying Yoga Alliance to be listed in their registry is not a requirement to get insurance or to be legally allowed to teach Yoga.
Can this YTT help me create an online yoga course or teach online?
Absolutely! We are passionate about giving you the tools that YOU need in order to succeed on your path. If your path is creating courses or teaching online, we will give you support in following your own journey. Our teachers have created multiple, successful online courses, and taught both public and private online classes as well. Because our focus is on helping students at an individual level, we can support you in whatever areas that you need in order to find your own success.
I have read everything and I am still unsure, is there someone I can talk to face-to-face?
We understand how difficult the decision to embark on this journey can be, we are committed to supporting all students in any way that we can.
