Join us for the Bali Yoga Teacher Training
November 1-24, 2017
Do you ever wonder what Yoga really is? If it is more than just fitness? More than a modern hippy fad? Do you have a desire to know what it is really all about? If so, then Yoga Teacher Training Course is the place for you. Join SYS and our amazing teachers in the heart of Bali for this Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training that will teach you what yoga really is.
In this Bali yoga teacher training course we will live with each other at Jiwa Damai, an organic garden retreat center situated in a tranquil and secluded environment. We are nestled away in a beautiful tropical valley in the heart of Bali, far away from the crowds of tourists. It provides a sanctuary in an idyllic, powerful place where guests can experience tranquility and re-connect to the life-giving qualities of the earth. Our permaculture garden is designed in accordance with nature. We practice sustainable biological gardening based on EM-Technologies (effective microorganisms). One area of the garden contains a variety of medicinal herbs, in other areas we grow plants for Balinese ceremonies as well as organic vegetables and fruit. One focus is to preserve rare species of indigenous plants, another to harvest coconuts and use local traditional methods to produce extra virgin coconut oil.
At Jiwa Damai we will share nutritious, organic Balinese meals family style, we will meditate together in the gardens, practice yoga together in an open air lounge, engage in meaningful philosophical discussion in a conscious way allowing us to explore the depth of mind and emotion and we will explore the physical and energetic bodies finding ways to connect our inner and outer world. By incorporating yoga in its totality we will learn to teach through our own daily practice.

We Teach Sadhana Yoga
The Yoga of Spiritual Practice
We use Patanjali’s Eight-Fold Path (Ashtanga Yoga) as our guide in how we teach the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual benefits that are accessible through daily practice. Our program includes asana (postures), meditation, pranayama (breath work) mantra (chanting of Sanskrit) as well as the study of yoga philosophy.
The Sadhana Vinyasa Flow is the yoga of spiritual practice based on the Ashtanga vinyasa tradition. Each pose is typically held between five to ten breaths followed by a breath-controlled vinyasa leading to the next pose. In this sequence we move with fluidity, buoyancy, strength, and vigor.
The Sadhana Hatha Flow is the yoga of spiritual practice based on the classic Sivananda tradition. After Sun Salutations warm-ups, postures are held for a space of time. By integrating breath and intention, each pose becomes a pose of meditation.
Beyond Professional, into the Personal
Our program includes the study of asana (physical postures), meditation, pranayama (breath work), mantra (chanting of Sanskrit), yoga philosophy, physical and energetic anatomy, the yogic diet, the art of sequencing and assisting, the kriyas, Ayurveda, special populations, and yoga in the marketplace.
Days begin with sunrise chanting, breathing practices, mediation and asana class. After a light snack, we meet for sutra study or anatomy. Then we break for brunch and karma yoga. In the afternoons, there will be a light lunch, lectures on yogic topics and teaching workshops. We finish our days with a family style vegetarian dinner followed by satsang, our community gathering.
