ABOUT THE TRAINING:
The East+West 200 hour yoga training, held at a majestic resort in the sun-soaked ricefields & jungle of Ubud, is largely recognized as the most comprehensive and transformative yoga trainings on earth. Our unique training format will evoke deep personal & spiritual transformation and prepare you to teach at a foundational level.
This training will be one of the most memorable and personally transformative times of your life. Your first immersive yoga training is about falling in love with the practice and going deeper into yourself. We design this training both for those who want to teach yoga, as well as those who simply want to come for personal reasons.
Our role is not to teach you to a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to do yoga, nor to indoctrinate you with a new yoga philosophy. Our primary role as facilitators is to create an authentic space where everyone connects and feels comfortable bringing your truest, deepest self. Our Yoga is about living authentically from your heart and exuding a sense of inner peace. From this space, true yoga begins.
The first week on our 200 hour training is like a yoga retreat. You’re here simply to enjoy yourself, fall in love with your classmates, soak in beautiful Bali, and re-attune your nervous system. As we transition into week 2, we being to dip our feet into the craft of teaching, learning how to sequence a class and begin practice teaching. On week three, our focus shifts to preparing you to teach your first professional class in a studio environment. This training structure, developed and honed over the last 6 years, honors all needs — from those looking to teach, to those wanting to simply learn more about yoga. We hold space for both those wanting to teach yoga full time professionally, as well as those simply here for personal reasons.
Yoga is a gift, the greatest gift, and no one can take it away from you. It is our most sincere honor to be with you during your journey.
Yes, the resort is beautiful, and the food is amazing. But by far the most important aspect of your training is your teachers. East+West has gone (literally) to the ends of the earth to find teachers who are unique leaders born to do this work. Your team of teachers is a hand selected all-star team of master level teachers who teach with nuance that facilitates deep life transformation. This training environment will deeply change the way you see and think and feel about the world around you. We are here to demonstrate presence, compassion, and what it means to hold the integrity of yoga.
