When deciding where to pursue a 200-hour yoga teacher training, there is a lot to take into consideration. One of the biggest things you will have to take into account is where the yoga teacher training is. While doing a part-time program more locally does have its pros, the life-changing effects and emotional and physical benefits of doing an immersive 200-hour intensive yoga teacher training are incomparable. Of the countless places you could pursue your yoga teacher training, a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Bali is unparalleled.
A 200-hour yoga teacher training in Bali is a time of self-discovery, spiritual growth, and physical and emotional evolution. A yoga teacher training program in itself is transformative, but undergoing such radical transformation and education in Bali undeniably elevates the experience further. Bali is a sanctuary for the senses and the spirit – a land steeped in culture and beauty where the Balinese live and breathe yoga (beyond the physical practice) in their daily lives. Bhakti Yoga (devotional yoga) is interwoven into the life of the Balinese – practiced every day in everything they do. The offerings, devotion, and the way they live in harmony with nature and spirit are a true inspiration to any yoga practitioner. The scent rising from incense burning in temples and homes, meandering through the air from daily offerings, the lush greenery that canopies the landscape, and the balmy tropical air that facilitates the perfect environment to grow an abundance of exotic fruits all contribute to Bali’s mystic charm.
Bali’s unique cultural heritage, deeply rooted in Hindu tradition, contributes to the feeling of sanctity and divinity that lingers in the air. Nature is regularly woven into Balinese architecture, reminding you continually of a sense of connection to the natural world. Emerald rice terraces, turquoise waters, and ancient temples immerse you in every corner and crease of Bali. The unparalleled serenity that the “Land of the Gods” provides the perfect atmosphere to embark on the journey inward that a yoga teacher training in Bali is.
Relationally, doing your yoga teacher training in Bali is vibrant and diverse. For many years now Bali has served as home for a vibrant tapestry of experienced yoga teachers, seasoned practitioners, and spiritual-seeking souls – both local and international. An immersive yoga teacher training in Bali magnetizes like-minded individuals from all over the world. The connections and relationships made on these trainings, both personally and professionally, often extend far beyond the training itself. A yoga teacher training in Bali is fertile ground for flourishing friendships that can last a lifetime.
While a local yoga teacher training spread out over an extended period of time may seem easier in some ways, by partaking in an immersive 200-hour program, you get so much more than just a certification. Yes, you will learn teaching skills, the physical and energetic effects of asanas, sequencing, anatomy, teaching methodology, and more. But while Inner Yoga Training’s yoga teacher training programs exceed the knowledge required to teach yoga and will prepare you to step directly into a teaching career, they also provide something so much more.
Their yoga teacher trainings are about self-discovery and help you to connect deeper with yourself. A yoga training program is an inner pilgrimage that can help you peel back the layers of everyday life, and allow you to experience the deepest essence of who you truly are. This experience alone contributes to being able to teach more authentic classes – as you explore your vulnerabilities and strengths, you may gain a newfound clarity and sense of self that enables you to share the gift of yoga authentically and freely with others from an experiential place. By completing your 200-hour teacher training in Bali you not only gain the skills to be an amazing yoga teacher – you gain experiences and skills for life.
