key factors to consider when committing to becoming a certified yoga teacher
- Time and Financial Investment
- Type of Yoga Teacher Training Program
- Quality of Yoga Teacher Training program
- Potential Career Opportunities
By considering these factors and doing your research, you can make an informed decision about whether committing to becoming a certified yoga teacher is the right choice for you.
What experience/qualifications do I need to join the course?
To teach yoga authentically, you must first have an established personal yoga practice. During this intensive course, you will have physical practice for two hours twice a day which will incorporate different styles of yoga – Vinyasa, Yin yoga, Yinyasa, Myoyin, Restorative, meditation, and pranayama practice.
If you feel ready to take this next step and wish to become a certified yoga teacher we do recommend you have at least 6 months of regular and dedicated yoga practice.
However, if you are at the stage where you wish to develop your own practice and learn more about yoga and all its aspects, but are not ready or do not wish to become a certified yoga teacher yet then our 200-hour courses are also for you. We understand it can be difficult to find the time to learn and practice all the elements of yoga, so this is an opportunity to do so without becoming a yoga teacher.
If this is you, we do recommend you have practiced any style of yoga for at least 3 months, as this will make it easier for you to develop a regular asana, pranayama, and meditation practice. You will be able to follow exactly the same schedule as those who are choosing to become certified, without the necessity to complete the assignment papers and student teaching labs. You will receive a 190 hours certificate of completion in Yoga Studies if you decide to not do the 10 hours practicums.
Do not worry if you have health misalignments or injuries, please just let us know.
The first day of the Yoga Teacher Training starts at 2 pm (14.00) with the welcome circle to meet and get to know each other better. The welcome circle is followed by your first practice.

I want to be Yoga Teacher, is this training for me?

Even if yoga teaching is not your purpose, you will dive deeper into your practice, share a unique transformational moment, gain changing Yoga knowledge, and be supported by open-hearted and caring teachers and new friends. So yes, if you wish to transform your mind, body, and life in beautiful Nusa Lembongan Bali… then this course is for you!
How to prepare myself for the Yoga Training in Bali?
Yoga Teacher Training courses tend to be very physically demanding, with lead asana classes, methodology workshops, and teaching practicum sessions. It is highly recommended that students prior to attending the course begin practicing asana 5-7 times a week (if they are not already doing so).
We also recommend that students begin developing a self-practice. Learning how to lead yourself through your yoga practice is a pivotal part of becoming a yoga instructor. Being a yoga teacher is very much about sharing your experience on the mat and your self-practice, and if you are unable to lead yourself, it will be challenging to lead others. If it is not a part of the way you currently practice yoga there’s no need to stress, in our course we will study in detail how to develop one’s self-practice, but as you prepare for the yoga training course, begin at least trying to practice on your own a few times a week.
I'm newbie yogi, will I be able to attend the course?
As the course is not purely asana (physical postures) based it does not matter if you do not have advanced practice. You will be learning much more than just the asana postures. All we ask our students is to have an open mind and heart and willingness to commit themselves completely to study and attend all classes throughout the 24 days of the Yoga Teacher Training in Bali.
Do I have to wait until the course starts to begin, do I have to complete the online module?
The online Anatomy yoga course has to be achieved before the in-person course starts, you will receive the link to register yourself with your booking confirmation email.
The online course is 20h long so don’t wait until the last minute to go through.
You will also have 2 hours with Rachel during the Yoga Teacher Training to review the Anatomy course so do not hesitate to take notes or questions you may ask her.
How many people will join the course?
To ensure the teacher’s full attention, we keep the maximum number of students to 16.

Time to pack your belongs
Important items to remember to bring
Your Yoga Mats
Mats and other props will be provided, but if you prefer not to use the mats from the training center, then please bring your own. If you don’t have a high-quality yoga mat already, we highly suggest buying one now! Our favorite brands are Jade Mats (eco-friendly), Manduka, Lululemon, and Liforme.
Confortable Yoga Clothes
If you haven’t invest in some yoga clothes that make you feel like a million bucks, now is also a great time to do that! Make sure you have full range of motion in any outfit you bring for yoga, whether that means spandex leggings or loose cotton pants.
Reusable Water Bottle
Since we can’t drink the tap water in Indonesia, bringing a portable, reusable water bottle is essential. In doing our best to help the environment, we highly suggest bringing a metal or glass water bottle with you and refilling it instead of buying a single-use, throw-away plastic water bottle a few times a day.
We recommend either bringing this with you or having enough time before the course starts to buy some in Bali or Nusa Lembongan. There will definitely be places to buy some in town, but if you prefer something natural, you might want to bring some from home that knows and trusts.
Make sure you have the proper adapter to be able to plug your device into Indonesian outlets. Indonesian uses European-style two-pin round plugs (“C”-type is the most common variant found). Voltage is at 220 V 50 Hz. Make sure you bring this with you or having the time buying one before the course starts, you should able to find it in town.
You will be in class a lot for the training, but you have a 1,5-hour lunch break every day and you are free for the entire day off – and the beach is right at our front door! Please choose a natural sunscreen. You will want to go for a swim and much of the toxic cream melts into the ocean causing the disturbance in the water and affecting marine life.
Bathing Suit & Warm-Weather Clothes
With the beach at our doorstep and a small pool on location, mixed with very warm weather, you will likely be taking a dip during your breaks and days off. Remember to bring a swimsuit and comfortable warm-weather clothing to lounge and relax in when not in class.
As they say around here, “it’s the months of BERS.” Our rainy season is USUALLY the month of December to the tail end of March but with the global warming, the weather has been unpredictable. Usually sunny during the day and early evening or late night, it pours. It’s a good idea to bring your rain jacket. Locals wear a poncho and those are very handy if you are driving a scooter. No point in bringing umbrellas. Trust us, they do nothing!
A Debit Card and some Cash
You can get cash at any local ATM. Make sure your bank knows you will be traveling abroad so that you are able to take out money when you arrive. Don’t expect small, local stores to accept credit cards – in fact, most stores won’t accept them. So make sure you have enough cash with you when you go into town to be able to get by without a card.
We recommend withdrawing cash in Bali before coming to Lembongan as the ATMs are sometimes empty for a few days.
A Notebook and a pen
Although you will receive the training manual when you arrive, and you can take notes in it, you will likely want to have a notebook with you for extra notes, journaling…
You could also like to bring some sticky notes, a colored pen, a highlighter… any stationery you ussually use.
If you forgot don’t worry we have a kind of stationery shop on the island.
