Are you ready to take your Yoga practice to the next level? Are you looking for a meaningful way to contribute to society? Akasha Yoga offers a space for integral evolution, and invites you to journey towards the very roots of classical Yoga. The comprehensive curriculum of the 200-hour intensive course is approved and certified by the renowned international Yoga Alliance. This Teacher Training is a heartfelt invitation to turn your passion into a meaningful profession.

The cornerstones of the teachings are energy-based classical Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, spiritual heart meditation, and the non-dual wisdom of Advaita Vedanta. Akasha Yoga teaches a sequence of 38 classical postures, which combine the traditional static holding of poses with the dynamic flow of sun salutations. To introduce the full scope of Hatha, the syllabus also incorporates purification techniques, breathing exercises, and meditation. The practice is framed by the study of yogic philosophy, fundamental scriptures, subtle energies and chakras, and the state of consciousness.

Unique key elements are included in the course that will empower you to become a successful Yoga instructor: the success of these teachings is reflected in the high conversion rate of graduates who start teaching right after the training.

The course is structured in a coherent way to enable beginners and advanced practitioners to obtain a comprehensive overview. The dedicated team of professional teachers translates the wisdom of the Yoga tradition into accessible modern language. The aim is to take the Yoga off the mat and integrate it into daily life. The full-time training stretches over a 4-week period. The first half builds up a solid foundation of theory and practice, and the second half focuses on the development of teaching skills.

The small group size (30 students) allows for personalized interaction, individual support, and an intimate, family like atmosphere. The inspiring teachings and the intensive practice have the potential to trigger profound changes, making this Teacher Training Course a unique experience.

The cost of the training includes your daily breakfast and a certificate of achievement. Lunch buffets can be accommodated for an additional fee of 170€. Accommodation options and packages onsite are also available for this training. If you choose to stay onsite, accommodation is provided one extra night before and one extra night after the training dates.

Venue   PRASHANTI

Welcome to Prashanti, a quiet, restful and spiritual destination located in a beautiful setting surrounded by green rice fields, just a short, ten minute walk from downtown Ubud, the cultural epicenter of Bali.

A small, bubbling creek runs next to Prashanti, and from our doorstep, one can walk for hours through lush rice fields and coconut tree lined trails. As the city swells with traffic and pedestrians, Prashanti offer a relaxing, meditative escape from the hustle and bustle of the hectic tourist scene.

Prashanti is built primarily of wood and natural sustainable material such as bamboo and alang alang, limiting the use of chemical products. Rooms are equipped with fans and designed in such a way that the natural river and jungle breeze cool down the room temperature.

Inclusive of two yoga studios, eco-friendly luxury rooms, onsite Balinese catering, and more, Prashanti is the ideal location to come on a restorative and healthful retreat or training.

Prashanti Yoga Retreat is a fusion between contemporary and authentic Bali. For those who enjoy being immersed in nature, soothed by a symphony of crickets and frogs, surrounded by dragonflies, butterflies and the legendary Kupu Kupu Barong, but want to stay only a few steps away from Ubud's city center, Prashanti offers the best of both worlds.

Ubud is located in the middle of Bali. Denpasar Bali Airport is located on the southern tip of the island. From there you can take a taxi to Ubud. It will take you between 60-90 minutes.

Accommodations

Food

The course tuition includes a healthy and delicious vegetarian breakfast and lunch. The breakfast consists of eggs, toast, black rice pudding, fresh fruit and tea. Lunches are served buffet style with a range of vegetarian curries, soups, legume dishes, rice and fresh salads. The food is made with fresh local ingredients and is served Monday through Saturday.


On Sundays and during the evening time, you are welcome to enjoy the local cafes and restaurants in Ubud. The town has a vibrant food scene and you will find an eclectic mix of healthy raw/vegan cafes, traditional Balinese warungs, international cuisine and simple street food. Balinese food is full of flavor and you will thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to experience this cuisine during your yoga training.

  Bali, Indonesia

Bali is most known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The weather is fairly even all year round making it a perfect holiday destination. 

Along the southern coastline, you can find popular beaches and surf spots such as Kuta, Seminyak and Uluwatu. As you venture in land, you’ll discover Ubud, which is the gem for yoga and spiritual practice. Born to stardom by the bestselling book Eat, Pray Love, Ubud is home to many yoga centers, healthy restaurants, cafes and streets of local shops. The soft temple bells encapsulate Ubud’s magic with historic temples built on almost every street corner. Spend a few days in Ubud to appreciate it properly. It's one of those places where days can become weeks and weeks become months. If you’re here, don’t forget to visit the infamous Monkey Forest.


There are international flights daily to Depensar International airport from all over the world. And the best way to get around in Bali is by car service which you can organize ahead of time or right at the airport. There are plenty of drivers awaiting guests to the country who are happy to take you directly to your desired location with a smile.
