Get some cardio at the local gyms like Bali Training Centre, Bamboo Fitness, 360 Movement, Bingin Space.

YOGA PRACTICE

Each morning you will receive a 2 hour guided practice of either traditional hatha yoga, dynamic vinyasa flow or ashtanga vinyasa yoga, all of which include pranayama breathwork and meditation. Classes are led by a senior 500HR-RYT instructor, who offers personalized feedback, hands on adjustments, and modifications for beginner and advanced learners. 

The 200HR YTT includes more traditional studio classes to establish a strong foundation. Some students may have very little to no yoga experience. Therefore, the first few days we move slowly, testing your levels of strength, flexibility and balance. The 300HR and Intermediate 200HR YTT are more interactive classes, which include short breaks to work on peak poses, advanced transitions and modifications with props in greater depth.

For both 200HR and 300HR YTT, advanced practitioners must be kind and patient towards lower level students. Compassion, in fact, is the most important trait of a yoga instructor that ULU Yoga cherishes. This starts with treating your peers, and instructors, with respect. A common mistake is that students think that training harder and pushing their body to the limit will advance their practice faster. More likely it will lead to burn out and injury, resulting in missed classes and negative attitudes toward the end of the training. 

YOGA ASANAS

The 200HR YTT covers the classic foundational poses and popular sequences such as sun salutations from hatha, vinyasa and ashtanga yoga. Learn the correct form and function, technique and alignment, purpose and benefits of each pose. Learn muscle engagement, how to and link breath with flow, how to avoid injuries, plus modifications for beginner and advanced levels. Students are encouraged to be patient and practice safely, but also to work hard with dedication as this practice can lead to a life changing transformation. 

The 300HR and Intermediate 200HR YTT provides more detailed info about the energetics and anatomical biomechanics underlying each asana, thus connecting the physical and spiritual dimensions of yoga on deeper levels. Naturally, an advanced training will include many advanced poses and the steps to achieve them safely over time. But also how to simplify poses and guide students with special needs. This enables you to serve a greater variety of students with a higher degree of skill, offering them more customized adjustments and modifications.

TEACHING PRACTICE

One thing lacking in most Yoga Teacher Trainings is adequate teaching practice. People spend a month studying yoga and can’t even teach at the end of it! 

At ULU Yoga you will practice teaching everyday in pairs and in small groups, plus teach a complete 75min class each week, followed by detailed feedback from your peers and instructor. Each week you will have lectures and workshops on teaching methodology, class design, and lesson planning. ULU Yoga is very proud of having an outstanding success rate and producing quality instructors who get jobs soon after completing their training with us.  

The 200HR YTT focuses on teaching standard hatha or vinyasa classes, which include pranayama, meditation, guided instruction, hands on adjustments and use of props. You can also focus on yin, ashtanga or even aerial if you already have some additional experience with these styles. Students are often nervous, but soon after teaching their first class they experience a huge boost in confidence, which grows exponentially week by week. You just do your best and enjoy the transformation into a professional yoga instructor.

The 300HR YTT encourages students to offer more specialized classes, such as arm balances, inversions, prenatal, yoga for seniors, children, injured, office workers, and other styles or themes to best suit your personal needs and the needs of yoga current or future clients. This is your chance to role play and gain more nuanced expertise to give your career an added edge. However you are welcome to teach standard hatha and vinyasa classes as well. Students are also encouraged to film themselves teaching and review it later with peers. This helps to show what you need to work on and what you should celebrate as your strengths. 

AERIAL, ACRO, YIN, SUP & BEACH

Each evening you will have a unique workshop to try new styles and experiences. This helps you to discover what you really love while gaining new skills and deepening your practice. Both the 200HR and 300HR YTT include 1x week acro yoga, aerial yoga, yin yoga and restorative yoga, plus 1x SUP yoga and beach yoga. 

Acro yoga is a super fun class that helps raise the energy and unite the group. You gain a deeper awareness of muscle engagement, alignment and bone stacking as you balance your partner in the air. Acro includes fun games full of laughter and challenging poses that push you beyond your comfort zone, to build new confidence and skill. 

Aerial yoga is ULU Yoga’s specialty. You will practice with their cushioned AirSwing, which is more comfortable and easy to use than regular aerial hammocks. Aerial helps offer restorative spinal healing and pain relief, it helps beginners achieve advanced poses, and enables experienced practitioners reach new levels they never dreamed of. 

Yin yoga and restorative yoga trains you to hold passive poses for longer times while supporting the body with various props. This allows you to go deeper into the connective fascia tissues to release tension and stress. Enjoy deep relaxation after a long day of training and tap into the body’s natural power of healing to recover from trauma and injuries.

SUP yoga (stand up paddle board) offers a new sense of balance as you float above the sea enjoying the gorgeous coastline. SUP yoga is an exhilarating experience that you will never forget, full of laughter, splashing around and communing with nature.

Beach yoga is a chance to connect with the divine, give thanks for life, and take amazing pictures 😉 Uluwatu and Koh Phangan have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. On a clear day you can see distant islands, inspiring limestone cliffs and clear blue turquoise waters.

ADDITIONAL WORKSHOPS

The 300HR, 200HR Intermediate, and sometimes the 200HR, include additional workshops for hands on adjustments, creative sequencing, advanced transitions, inversions, working with injuries, yoga massage, ayurveda, traditional tantra yoga, chakra awakening, yoga nidra, kundalini, Osho meditation, wellness related student presentations and more.

After many years of running YTT’s we find that each group is different. Sometimes a 200HR has many advanced students who want more challenging workshops. Sometimes a 300HR has low level students who need more time to revisit the basic asanas. Therefore, workshops may change month by month depending on the needs, interests and level of students, plus available time and availability of various instructors. 

ANATOMY

Understand your body and the bodies of your students in a much deeper way. Learn how the bodily systems, structures and movements are all fundamentally linked. Receive instruction for cueing to improve your alignment and technique, help prevent injuries, plus alleviate pain, strain and tensions in the body. 

The 200HR provides an intro to anatomy, which covers basic anatomical terms, functions of the muscio-skeletal system, properties and characteristics of the body. Learn about the bones, muscles, joints, connective tissue, fascia, facial dumping, planes of motion, compression and tension, cell structure, and biotensegrity.

The 300HR YTT includes advanced functional yoga anatomy, including hands-on demonstrations and physical practices to put this knowledge in action with asanas. You will learn in depth shoulder mobility, hip mobility, the spine & lower back. The joints, ankles, knees, wrists & elbows. Foot and bow, the nervous system, the nature of fascia, the functional anatomy of a handstand and other practices.

*Anatomy is a very broad subject covering the entire human body. These lessons contain challenging technical vocabulary from medical, biological and sport sciences. This requires additional reading and multiple reviews to understand and internalize. Therefore, it is recommended that you complete all of the anatomy classes online, and save the onsite time for deeper discussion and analysis. The onsite training has but limited time to cover the most relevant topics.

PHILOSOPHY

Both the 200HR and 300HR YTT have extensive philosophy studies. ULU Yoga wishes that you may learn to apply them to your daily life in practical ways, not just learning about obsolete metaphysical concepts from old books. The goal is to discover your true self and the deeper nature of reality through the sacred wisdom of ancient yogic philosophy. 

Both the 200HR and 300HR YTT topics include the history and meaning of yoga, plus ancient texts of the vedas, yoga sutras and Bhagavad Gita. You will cover in depth the 8 limbs, yamas, niyamas, koshas, kleshas, nature of self/soul, nadis, chakras, consciousness, karma, gunas, doshas, ego, tantra, ayurveda and more. Naturally the 300HR goes more in depth into these topics, and requires more additional reading, journaling and interaction during lectures and group work. 

*Yoga philosophy includes unfamiliar vocabulary and concepts which are very foreign and even contradictory to western perspectives on life, ego, reality and spirituality. This requires additional reading and multiple reviews to understand and internalize. Therefore, it is recommended that you complete all of the philosophy classes online, and save the onsite time for deeper discussion and analysis. The onsite training has but limited time to cover the most relevant topics. 

BUSINESS ESSENTIALS

The 200HR YTT gives a detailed explanation of the various Yoga Alliance designations for teachers and schools, and getting registered. You learn tips about getting jobs, advertising your classes, creating relations with students and studios. Discover techniques for taking quality pics and videos, content creation and social media development.

The 300HR and Intermediate 200HR discuss designing workshops, retreats and teacher trainings. Learn about building a professional website and getting listed on booking platforms such as bookretreats and shopify. We talk about creating and managing teams for marketing, admin, instructors, and operational staff. You learn how to partner with resorts to rent shalas, book accommodations, and plan meals.

ONLINE STUDIES

Each onsite YTT requires students to complete some hours of online studies. You can work at your own pace and complete them in 14 days or up to 2 years. It’s recommended that you complete these hours before the onsite course, but you can also do them after. The studies cover all subjects, such as regular guided practice, asana alignment and technique, philosophy, anatomy, teaching methodology and more. You can follow the set order of the online course or skip around and choose what to focus on to best suit your personal needs. Yoga Alliance recommends that you give special attention to anatomy and philosophy as those are the more difficult topics which require additional reading and review. 

Here are how many hours you must do onsite and online for each course:

14day 200hr YTT is 100h onsite / 100h or 50% online

21day 200hr YTT is 150h onsite / 50h or 25% online

14day 300hr YTT is 200h onsite / 200h or 67% online

An Incredible Experience "This is my first yoga teacher training, and also my first time visiting Bali - the three weeks long experience has been absolutely amazing for me! It turns out to be more than just learning yoga and training as a yoga teacher - I’m truly grateful for everything I learned there. I have learned about self-love, being brave, and staying humble, and so much more. I definitely recommend it. Ulu yoga offers many interesting non-traditional yoga courses e.g. aerial, acro, beach, SUP (I’m an aerial yoga lover, and I have to say Ulu’s unique hammock was so much fun to play with!). The variety of the people I met and the teachers are all lovely, caring, and knowledgeable despite their different backgrounds, moreover the classmates are from all over the world so every day it’s learning about new things, getting to know different cultures, sharing and hearing different life stories. The location I attended the training in Uluwatu, which is less touristy, close to the beach (many surfers go surfing there), and has many good restaurants and cafes. The materials, they will provide you a textbook on the site, and there’s also an online learning platform which I find helpful, you have access to it for about a year so that you can revisit it as you wish. !"

Amazing Authentic Experience I completed my 200h YTT with Ulu Yoga in Bali. All of the teachers were really amazing! It’s the perfect mix of the authenticity of yoga with humble and caring humans, all in a perfect environment like Bali, close to the beaches. If you are looking for a serious school well-planned with a great balance of all the different teachers' energy and knowledge, this is it! I liked that you see a little bit of a lot of styles; this way, you can choose what you prefer, and you might be surprised by what you will discover! It’s really worth trying. The breakfast included was really good; you have a choice every day with sweet or salty. The shala is peaceful and well-situated, and it has a lot of good restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner. A big thank you to all the ULU yoga team! We had Héloïse as a leader teacher; she was amazing. She has a sparkling energy. I loved that she has lots of knowledge with chakras. She also taught us how to create a safe place to open up emotionally. Manjeet was also an amazing philosophy teacher. His knowledge is a perfect mix with tradition from India and a funny and humble human being in this modern world. Salome with Ashtanga taught us a more traditional approach, Eddie with Aerial yoga, Lloyd and Flo acro yoga were very competent and taught us with safety how to approach those styles. And I loved the flowy vinyasa from Krystal. Also, Tania, the coordinator, she was really helpful and caring! They all added their flavor. I highly recommend 🙂 Read More >>

I had the best experience with Ulu! The setting was on an island in Thailand- the resort was right next to the beach, and the weather was beautiful!!! There was a breakfast buffet everyday, which was amazing. And the beach (Haad Yao) was so picturesque. There were several instructors, and they were all amazing and knowledgeable! I loved how they put an emphasis on safety and how the poses are for each person's body. The course was a lot more intense than I had anticipated- but you learn a lot, and you get a lot of teaching practice. I took the 200hr multi-style course, so I had the pleasure of experiencing SUP yoga (on a paddle-board), acroyoga, aerial yoga, yin, hatha, vinyasa, and even a taste of ashtanga.

Empowered to Continue my Spiritual Path
I want to thank ULU Yoga again for the wonderful time I had during my on-site training in Uluwatu, Bali. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am incredibly thankful for all the laughs, tears, and insights we shared. I learned an awful lot! Not only how to design classes and teach others but also a lot about myself and my practice. My personal highlights were the excursion to the spa, which added a delightful touch to the program, fostering bonding among the participants. Also the variety of different yoga styles we got to experience, including acro, aerial, and yin. After this training, I feel now equipped to teach others in vinyasa and hatha yoga classes and empowered to continue my spiritual path. Also the shala is very new, with a lovely view of the sea, creating a peaceful atmosphere for practice. The location in Uluwatu, Bali, added to the overall charm of the experience. Beyond the physical aspects of yoga, the training delved into the spiritual and personal dimensions, enriching my understanding of both teaching and self-discovery. The supportive environment created by ULU Yoga allowed for personal growth, and the camaraderie among the participants made it a truly special journey. I want to express my gratitude to the ULU Yoga team for facilitating this incredible experience. Overall, the training has left me feeling prepared and inspired to share the gift of yoga with others. Thank you again for this wonderful time! Read More >>
