The 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Ubud, Bali, is a highly transformational 3-week full-time immersion into the very Heart of Hatha Yoga - which is the integration of breath and prana with body movement.
This foundation course offers an experiential understanding of the principles of Hatha Yoga and an introduction to the deep philosophical and spiritual roots of the tradition. Immersion in this transformational journey in a heart-centered family environment naturally leads to inner growth and a sense of connectedness with life.
The comprehensive curriculum is presented by expert teachers and certified by the international Yoga Alliance.
Join the Akasha family in bountiful Bali to deeply connect to your truth and turn your passion into a meaningful profession.
