Yin/Yang Yoga Teacher Training : 2015 January 20 - February 15, Bali
In order to ensure the quality of the program and personalized guidance for each student, the yoga teacher trainings are limited to 24 students
Make sure to register early to secure your place for the yoga teacher training. All our courses get usually fully booked 3 to 4 months ahead.
The intention of this training is to take a holistic and synergistic approach into understanding the two polarities of Yin and Yang energies within ourselves, as well as comparing and integrating the Physical and Meditative practices that they offer.. The Physical practice will be looked at through the analysis of Ashtanga Vinyasa´s Primary Series and the more subtle layers will be explored by integrating Yin Yoga and Meditation.
Our Yin, Yang (Ashtanga) Yoga Teacher Training integrates Yogic, Taoist and Buddhist concepts to compare, contrast and interpret the essential message of each of these different traditions. From the gross to the subtle we believe in cultivating an awareness of all the different layers of the practitioner, combining body/mind perception as a practice to positively influence, modify, and transform one's health and consciousness.
SHANTI AGUNG CENTRE was created by Australian Zenthai Shiatsu founder and practitioner Gwynn and his wife Gaia in partnership with local couple Mr and Mrs Komang. It serves the duel purpose of allowing Westerners to experience the richness of life in a simple Balinese fishing village, providing a home and employment for the Komangs and up to 20 locals (depending on bookings). The centre is custom built and features a juice bar.
Where it is located?
Pantai Jasri is a small fishing village with surf, ceremony, chocolate factory, coconuts and a lovely French cafe on the east coast of Bali (approx. 1.5 hours from airport). This is old time Bali: sarongs , incense , simplicity, bamboo , rice farming, traditional fishing boats and plenty of time to relax.
The Meals are cooked by the hosts, with all the tasty Indonesian spices included. Simple vegetarian, with optional fish and eggs at times. Set close to a coconut forest, there are plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. The hosts are now embracing more organic and wholesome ideas for meals with no artificial additions and some including Ayurvedic principles.
There are a number of wonderful experiences around the village including a white sandy beach, ujung waterhole, agung mountain, kings palace, cacao chocolate factory, French cafe and restaurant.... This place is really quite a gem, close to the now busy life around Bali's centers. The area is joyful, has welcoming people and most importantly the ability for you to switch off and enjoy an insightful yoga journey.
Includes single or double room depending on your preferences and 3 vegetarian meals daily. The accommodation will start on the 19th of January at 1:00pm and includes lunch and dinner for that day. It will end on the 16th of February with the final breakfast.
Cost is approximately $40 USD one way and can be divided amongst a group.
The organic restaurant will not disappoint either. The menu will consist of the freshest locally grown raw organic and lightly cooked vegetarian meals. The menu is designed to cleanse and facilitate detoxification on your body during the course, and to teach you about proper food habits and food combining.

About the Yin 100 hours
The practice of Yin Yoga has transformative effects on body and mind. The gentle but consistent stimulation of the connective tissues encourages long-term health and flexibility of the joints, recharges the energetic systems of the body and naturally draws the mind inward into a relaxed, contemplative state. It also prepares the body and mind for longer and better quality meditation practices.

Each day will include an extended practice of asana, pranayama & meditation, extensive lectures & analysis, work-shopping and partner work.

We will also be looking into the Tantric model of Chakras and how this model is expressed in physical, psychological and energetic forms of the body. We will relate Chakra theory to the practice itself and towards our internal introspection with techniques of related meditation and pranayama. There will compatible referencing of Yin aspects with anatomy and technique in asanas and its flavor will be used to enhance the intelligence of the Vinyasa practice as well as the meditative disciplines.
