What to Expect from a Bali Yoga Training

Om and welcome to the magical heartland of Bali! It’s important to School Yoga Institute that we connect to the sacred energy of the land we host our training on. Bali has lovingly adopted the name the Heart Chakra of the world and we couldn’t resonate more. This soulful place has long drawn yogis from around the world! Here we feel the land, the people, and the culture of Bali perfectly enrich the very essence of School Yoga Institute. We are so grateful to be back to host our Yoga Teacher Training in Bali! It is our mission to facilitate soulful connection, to feel what it truly means to be alive, to be at one with nature, the plants, the animals, and our kin. Immersing ourselves in the enriched Balinese culture is a beautiful insight into just that. 

Whether joining us in the spiritual hub of Ubud, the soulful shores of Uluwatu, or amongst the templed rocks of Balian Beach, your Yoga Teacher Training in Bali is set to offer soul connection and path affirming transformation.

Ceremony & Culture

In Bali, we celebrate life, culture, and community. Bali is the only Hindu island in Indonesia and Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of devotion, celebration, prayer & song) is the way of life. Temples devoted to deities adorn the roadsides, and offerings of marigolds, sweet treats, and prayers are laid in daily blessings at doorways.  

The people of Bali welcome and honor visitors from around the world graciously sharing their deep connection and way of life with those who wish to delve a little deeper. During our Bali yoga training, we regularly invite local priestesses, dancers, and practitioners of traditional devotional arts to share their ancestral wisdom and ceremony with students. 

Dance is another traditional form of devotional expression in Bali. From young ages, girls in Bali gather at temples to perform the traditional devotional dance as an artistic expression of gratitude, bliss, and devotion for the connection of mind, body, and spirit in the incarnation of the human form. These dances often take on the story of devotion to a particular deity in sharing their message.

Connection to nature & self

At any one of our Bali locations you’ll be deeply immersed in Bali’s bountiful nature and if you have the time, Bali has some stunning points of natural beauty to visit. Here’s a few of our favorite spots!

Connection to Mother Earth is keenly felt in Bali, and equally so is the honoring of the healing power of water (Ay). One spot famous for tourists and spiritual pilgrimage alike is the Uluwatu Temple, the temple is in fact a series of pagodas and temple structures that embellishes the lower western coastline of Bali. 

Across cultures, water has been referred to for cleansing and healing. Water ceremonies have long been held to honor the feminine, yin, and lunar energies of soul cleansing and rebirth. We have found that our Yoga Teacher Trainings in Bali are an inspirational transformation of soul evolution, all those who join our Bali yoga training are meant to be there and we honor this rebirth of the soul in our own water ceremonies during our training.

Many students are often called to visit Pura Tirta Tawar, to join both tourists and locals in a traditional water cleansing. 

  • Watch the sunrise over Mt Batur 
  • Experience the bustling markets of Ubud 
  • Monkey Forest 
  • Waterfalls  in the northern regions
  • Surf at Uluwatu’s hidden beaches
  • Visit the relaxed islands off the coast of Bali. The Nusa Islands offer jaw-dropping Jurasic coastline, pristine beaches, and some lesser-known surf spots.
  • Shop your heart out!

Food at our Yoga Teacher Training in Bali

It’s pretty safe to say at SYI we’re a team of foodies, nourishing our bodies and sustaining a yogi diet is one aspect of our training students particularly enjoy as this training gives them the opportunity to explore a vegan/ vegetarian diet possibly for the first time. 

It seems the world is opening up to the understanding of the importance of proper nourishment. All of our Bali locations have a team of dedicated chefs who provide 3 soul-nourishing meals (and snacks!) a day, as much as possible we source local and organic produce and offer a mix of local and international dishes.

Most meals are served buffet-style breakfasts including fresh tropical fruits, smoothies, toasts, nut spreads, granola, eggs, vegetables, and rices. The healing drink of Jammu is often offered at trainings as a immune-boosting way to begin the day, a blend of fresh turmeric, ginger, and honey.

The largest meal served at the midpoint of the day some classic offerings of Indonesian cuisine can include Gado Gado, Nasi Goreng, Mi Goreng, Redang curries, and more! We cater to Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free diets.

Climate

Bali has a tropical climate meaning it is hot all year round. The rainy season is from November to March, and a relatively dry season from April to October. Showers can occur but rarely last more than an hour or so. 

Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 57°F to 81°F and is rarely above or below either.

Getting around in Bali

There’s so much to explore in Bali, getting around the island is certainly accessible with apps such as GoJek that offer both car and bike taxi services for an extremely reasonable rate. It’s worth noting that in most parts of Bali Uber is banned for that reason we recommend using the above apps.

We hope to see you in the blessed land of Bali very soon!
