In this yoga teacher training, we will explore the two polarities of Yang (Ashtanga Vinyasa) and Yin yoga practices. Beyond physical asana practices, we will explore the meditative aspect of yin yoga all in the while develop a critical analysis for the Ashtanga Vinyasa’s Primary Series.Our Yin/Yang (Ashtanga) yoga teacher training is based on Yogic, Taoist and Buddhist concepts and fundamentals. Through each unique yet highly integrated tradition, we thus compare, contrast and interpret the essential message in each of them. From the gross to the subtle, having the backbone of body/mind perception as a practice, we positively cultivate and heighten the level of awareness of the practitioner and in so 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.

In this 100hr Yin Yoga training, we will explore the concepts and fundamentals of yin yoga and meditation. The practice of yin yoga has a long-lasting effect on the body and mind. With calming yet consistent stimulation of the connective tissue, we then increase circulation and integrity in the mobility and flexibility of the joints. Beyond physicality, the energetic system of our body also heightens and recharges due to the stimulation on the meridian lines. Yin yoga is an art of practice as we delve inward submerging into a contemplative state. Through this practice, a practitioner will develop a longer and better quality meditation practice.
This training is suitable for yoga teachers and committed yoga practitioners with minimum 2 years of experiences. It is not necessary to have done yin yoga prior to this training program. However, the enrolled students should demonstrate keen interests in anatomy, Qi theory, philosophy and meditation. Although it’s not mandatory to want to become a yoga teacher, it is crucial that students have the spirit and interest to learn and progress in their own practices.
For students who have completed their Certified 200hr Yoga Teachers Training (of any discipline), you may choose to do the 100hr Yin Yoga module individually.

In this part of the training, we guide you through the primary series of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga as taught by S.K Pattabhi Jois. Through critical and definitive analysis, we break down the entire series breath by breath, posture by posture. As we submerge ourselves in this traditional sequence, we will develop a sense of appreciation in the immense healing power the primary series has to offer. Enrolled students please expect to teach early on in this training. Moving at a quick yet manageable pace, you will quickly learn how to practice skillfully and teach confidently. In addition, we will implement the learning of Chakras based on the Tantric model and how it expresses its way on 3 levels: physical, astral and causal. Linking the chakras model with Ashtanga VInyasa with the extension of pranayama and meditation practices, this 100hr Ashtanga yoga portion will deepen our body/mind perceptions holistically.
