Who is it for?

Our YTT program is designed for the yoga practitioner who is ready to take the next step in their Yoga Teacher career by broadening their experience and offering to include the magical gift of Yin Yoga.

Do I need to have a strong yoga practice already?

It is highly recommended that you have had at least 6 months – one year of regular practice prior to the start of the course to help to get your started on your yin yoga teacher journey.

Contrary to belief, a flexible body free of injuries is not a requirement for this training! Yoga, and Yin Yoga in particular, is a practice of meeting the body where it is, and then working with the body to slowly and respectfully move deeper.

If you are waiting for the day when you can finally get your foot behind your head, to become a teacher or commit to take your practice to the next level, you may be denying yourself the opportunity of a lifetime!

Our 50-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program will provide you with a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of yin yoga, expand your skills and open yourself up to moving closer to your most authentic self – and learn how to share your passion with the world around you.

This 7 day yoga teacher training intensive will place demands on your comfort zones, inspire incredible self-esteem and self-respect both as a teacher and as an individual as well as transform your ability to feel connected to yourself and to others.

We will be working together in a small team, so each session will be a powerful opportunity to get to better know yourself, and those around you, supporting each other and helping each other grow and move forward as you make those steps of transitioning from student to teacher. This type of work becomes really powerful when a small group of people, all ready to break open and find out what really drives them, come together for the purpose of learning, self development, and enriching their own human experience.

Be prepared to be honest with yourself, to give yourself to each moment that comes to you
and to be receptive to seeing things from a totally different perspective than where you started.

Yoga is a way of life

The Serenity Yoga Teacher Training consists of 4 key modules over 7 days, along with a high degree of practical focus and self-study. We go above and beyond the simple requirements of the Yoga Alliance in order to ensure that we get the most that we can from this beautiful experience.

Each day will include yoga workshops in the style of Yin Yoga, guided meditation and pranayama, philosophy and yogic discussion, with full support from the Serenity Yoga team. Most of our teaching will take place in the beautifully calming space created within the fabulous Shala of Serenity Yoga Lembongan.

You will discover your authentic voice and gifts as a teacher, create inspiring and meaningful themes, refine the art of observation, learn how to really see your students, design a self practice that will be the basis from which your own teaching style will emerge, and you will learn how this creates not good but fantastic teachers. You will learn to understand better how to skilfully sequence group yoga classes.

You will learn to embody the anatomy and philosophy of yoga, cultivating a deeper understanding of subtle body anatomy that you can sprinkle into your classes, and take further into better understanding your own practice and body.

You will learn how to use your own life experiences as inspiration in your classes, refining your gift of expression and teaching through constant feedback with your teacher and peers. You will be taught how to modify poses for beginners or advanced practitioners in your class, ensuring that each yogi takes from their practice what they need. You will learn verbal cues, how to offer appropriate demonstrations, how to adapt, or assist your yogis when they can go melt deeper into their practice, or simply need help with their own unique alignment. We will discuss the philosophy of where yin yoga came from, and how it continues to evolve.

We will touch on so many areas that you will realize that yoga is a journey of life, these 50 hours of training will simply be the start of your big adventure into the most exciting journey of all – self discovery.
