Bali is an Indonesian island, located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Bali is known worldwide for its stunning natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and vibrant tourist industry. With its lush tropical forests, pristine beaches, and towering volcanoes, Bali is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Bali’s cultural heritage is also a major draw for visitors, with a long history of traditional art and dance. Visitors can witness traditional dances, such as the Legong and Barong dances, and can explore the many intricately decorated temples and shrines scattered throughout Bali. The island’s capital, Denpasar, is home to the Bali Museum, which offers a fascinating insight into the island’s cultural and historical background.

Bali is famous as a mecca for yoga enthusiasts from all over the world. The peaceful atmosphere of the island, combined with its spiritual heritage and stunning natural beauty, has made Bali an ideal destination for those seeking to deepen their yoga practice.

There are several reasons why Bali has become famous for yoga. Firstly, Bali is known for its rich cultural heritage, with a long history of spiritual practices, including yoga. The island has a deep respect for spiritual traditions and a strong connection to nature, which creates a unique atmosphere of peace and tranquility. This spiritual atmosphere is perfect for yoga practitioners who are seeking a deeper connection to their practice and learn more about yoga philosophy.

Bali’s tropical climate also makes it a popular destination for yoga enthusiasts. With its warm and sunny weather, beautiful beaches and lush jungles, Bali provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor yoga practices. Our Sacred Locations offer beachfront and jungle views, allowing our students to experience the beauty of the island while enhancing their physical and spiritual practice.

Doing a Yoga Teacher Training in Bali offers individuals the opportunity to deepen their practice, connect with like-minded people, and experience the peace and tranquility of the island. Whether one is a beginner or an experienced practitioner, Bali offers something for everyone.

Another factor is Bali’s close proximity to other popular Southeast Asian destinations, such as Thailand and Vietnam. This makes it easy for travelers to combine their yoga teacher training course or yoga retreats with a broader travel itinerary, allowing them to explore the region and experience different cultures.

Embarking on the Yoga Teacher Training at School Yoga Institute in Bali is an extraordinary and transformative experience that blends the serene beauty of Bali with the profound wisdom of yoga. We emphasize the importance of finding one’s authentic teaching voice. In order to help them feel confident and deeply motivated as they transition into the job of a yoga teacher, we urge our trainees to embrace their special talents and abilities.

Led by highly experienced and dedicated instructors, our Bali Yoga Teacher Training encompasses a wide array of subjects. Trainees explore various yoga styles, asanas, pranayama techniques, anatomy, philosophy, and teaching methodologies. The curriculum balances traditional knowledge with contemporary insights, empowering participants to create dynamic and impactful yoga classes.

Set amidst the lush landscapes and tranquil beaches of Bali, the training provides the perfect backdrop for self-exploration and spiritual growth. Participants engage in daily yoga practice, meditation, and self-reflection, connecting with the spirit of yoga and its age-old teachings as they go on a profound inner journey.

Upon completion of the Bali Yoga Teacher Training, graduates not only receive a Yoga Alliance certification but also carry with them the tools to inspire and uplift others through the transformative practice of yoga. Whether aspiring to teach or deepen their personal practice, our training creates an enduring connection to the essence of yoga, making the journey of self-discovery and growth a truly remarkable one.


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 Teacher 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 age, 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.

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 are 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). 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 Training in Bali is an inspirational transformation of soul evolution, all those who join our Bali YTTs are meant to be there and we honor this rebirth of the soul in our own water ceremonies during our training.

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!

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.


Each training holds unique energy, created from like-minded souls who join from all over the world. To guide the process of personal transformation we draw on the ancient wisdom of the East as well as on the Shamanic Medicine Wheel of Peru.

Our 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training courses are arranged in four cycles, following the four cardinal directions, asking the guardian spirits to guide a cycle of release, understanding, growth, and empowerment. Together we create a space that reveals our wisdom within and accelerates the realization of our life purpose.

Mystical Yoga, or yoga of spiritual practice, reaches deep into the roots of an ancient way of life. The study of this knowledge calls us to reveal the yoga, the union, between ourselves and everything around us.

Our 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training embodies this approach, opening us up to the wisdom of the teacher that is already within each of us. In 21 days, we immerse ourselves in experience — we dance, we chant, we sing. We find community with like-minded people and embrace the stillness within ourselves. We call on our intuition for the answers and we speak from spirit to spirit. We delve deep into the experience, free from the skins of our past, from unnecessary distractions to allow the authentic connection with ourselves to emerge.

Through the journey of the 200-Hour YTT, students have the opportunity to step into their power as yoga teachers, to rediscover facets of their being, and share a deeper knowledge of the mystical dimensions from where we all came and to which we will all return. Through the study of ancient wisdom and practice of daily mystical yoga, we begin to reveal a greater sense of beauty, love, and freedom. We discover yoga as a toolkit which we can apply to bring us into present awareness of the true, pure essence of life.

Choosing to endeavor on the path of a yoga teacher is a noble pursuit of committing to oneself, to embodying a more aligned way of life. This journey will ask for self-reflection, honesty, acceptance, growth, and discipline. It is a full immersion into the world of yoga which has the power to bring life-altering alignments.

“Prayer is you speaking to God. Meditation is allowing the spirit to speak to you.” Deepak Chopra

In our Art of Teaching and Art of Touch sessions you will find your voice as a yoga teacher and build confidence to guide students through practices. You will start teaching mini sequences from day 1 so that you feel comfortable in the role of a yoga teacher by the end of your training.

Kriya yoga is an applied yoga system designed to purify the body and mind for better practice. Throughout our 200hr program you will be introduced to various methods that will allow you to drop that bit deeper into stronger mind and spirit connection.
