Bali 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
November 4 - December 20, 2018
Where You’ll Be!
From the moment you step foot on the ground in Bali, you’ll be surrounded by exquisite beauty and the warmth and graciousness of its people. Bali’s tranquil vibe, slower pace of life, and awe-inspiring landscapes and seascapes make it a perfect location for your yoga teacher training experience.
Your training takes place in a quiet seaside town in East Bali, a world-class destination for snorkeling and diving. Here, nestled on a peaceful, reef-protected lagoon of the Indian Ocean, you will experience a peaceful glimpse into Balinese culture. You will be blissfully removed from the crowds of Bali’s tourist-focused cities, while still being close enough to explore the island in your free time.
Where You’ll Stay!
Your training takes place at an unbelievably beautiful and peaceful oceanside resort that's described as "staggeringly gorgeous" on TripAdvisor, and "Best in Class' by Frommers. From the breathtaking ocean views to the spacious well-appointed bungalows to the gracious and attentive staff, you’ll feel relaxed and cared for your entire trip.
When you’re not in training, you can relax in the ocean or the pool, or explore the local scenery and culture. The resort amenities include a full spa, on-site restaurants serving both traditional Balinese and Western food, and a lovely outside bar. Contact us for the specific resort name and details!
