Bali Yoga Teacher Training Program
Due to the pandemic, this training is suspended until further notice.
Thank you for inquiring about our Bali Yoga Teacher Training Program. This is a 200 hour, two month course and the whole training takes place on the island of Bali, Indonesia. After two months of study in Bali with Ki and Bob you could come back with a teaching certificate. Bali is a wonderful place to live and practice Yoga with these two inspirational teachers. The location of their yoga studio that overlooks the Ayung River Valley is Sayan-Ubud, Bali. The 200 hour Bali Yoga Teacher Training program normally runs from late June until mid-August. Ki and Bob encourage you to come for the full two months of training. You are also welcome to come to any part of the two months of training and accumulate hours for the next training program in Bali (scheduled for the same time in the following summer) or for our ongoing Seattle Yoga Teacher Training group, a new group beginning each fall.
The basic cost of the yoga training is $2400. The first month will cost $1200 for study and the second month will also cost $1200. There will be approximately 20 hours per week of Yoga offered during the first four weeks and 21 hours per week of Yoga Teacher Training during the second month of the training. Extra hours will be given for a written project you do in Bali. There will be a lot of free time for you to explore the rich culture of Bali and a lot of time for personal study and reading. Once you are in Bali the cost of living is quite inexpensive. While in Bali we will practice asana, pranayama and meditation six mornings a week from 9:00 – 11:30 during the first month. During the first month we will also practice asana, pranayama, and meditation three afternoons a week.
As we progress through the program you will learn to teach Yoga safely and wisely, with opportunities for student teaching. Some of the second month afternoon subject matters for the training will include: pranayama, meditation, lineage, the Yoga Sutras, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, living the life of a Western Yogi – Yogini; ethics, and 20 hours of study in anatomy as it applies to asana practice. Ki and Bob have have only one main requirement before you can enter their training program – this being that you have practiced Hatha Yoga for at least two years before you can be admitted. Finally, they ask that each graduating student submit a 45 minute video of a Yoga class they have taught before a certificate is given. The certificates Ki and Bob hand out are recognized nationally in the U.S. and internationally, as their school is registered and recognized by the Yoga Alliance, the main governing board for Yoga in the West. With the certificate you will be able to register with the Yoga Alliance as a certified Yoga instructor.
