Answer all those questions that have accumulated while practicing on your mat. Go back to the beginning to set alignment: the foundation of safety in yoga. During our posture labs we set over 75 asanas so you can reset your habits and learn the most effective and safe way to practice and teach. Learn how different bodies adopt these asanas and see all the variations of each pose.
The real yoga: breath awareness. Develop a relationship with your breath, the root of everything. After our month together you will have a deep connection with your breath that will be the base of your practice. Spend time with our pranayama specialist to begin the journey of the breath. You will cover tools, techniques, anatomy, and philosophy that will stay with you for life. We place a great emphasis on the breath in our training because it is the heart beat of the practice.
To calm the fluctuations of the mind is the greatest benefit of the practice of yoga. Our month together will allow you to experince meditation and all it’s glory in many different forms. Learn different techniques that will help you deepen your own practice and grant you the confidence to lead others into what is considered to be the healthiest practices we can do for ourselves. Daily meditations will be part of the course. The philosophy and science behind it will help you become more connected and inspired.
YOGA PHILOSOPHY & HISTORY
In order to fully understand the practice it is necessary to go back to where it all began. Understanding the history of yoga will bring you into a deeper and more connected relationship with the practice both on and off the mat. The staple of our philosophy discussions will be The Yoga Sutras by Patanjali. We will study the different Hindu deities that show up in the asana and mantras, as well as covering the four paths of yoga. We spend some time every day covering this section as the information and answers that lie here are transformative.
THE ART OF SEQUENCING
Intelligent, creative, and informed sequencing is a focus in our training. This often illusive, intimidating part of yoga will be broken down so the puzzle becomes less overwhelming. We build on a peak pose or theme and place emphasis on understanding the importance of linking postures to bring you to a place where a peak expression can be explored in a safe and integrated way. This includes all the modifications, variations, and adjustments to help you bring your whole class into a successful experience.
THE ART OF TEACHING
One of the most challenging parts to the training is finding the voice of a teacher. We often reach success on our own mats but when it comes to translate that information to others we get stuck or afraid. We start practice teaching on day one so that the task becomes second nature. You will be given the tips and tools to use effective language in the classroom, learning alignment cues, pace, projection, and quality instruction. The month culminates with you teaching your very own yoga class to the public at Power Of Now Oasis, an unforgettable experience that will get you ready to teach anywhere in the world!
SUBTLE BODY ANATOMY
Energetics is one of the most exciting modules we offer. Humans are a sum of energy. Opening the doors to the potential of this subtle field is an exciting journey. To self-heal through understanding ourselves on a deeper level, one that is often overlooked or unknown, has profound effects. We will focus on The Chakra System, Nadis, Prana, Bandhas, Mudras, Koshas, and much more.
KRIYAS & JAPA
Cleansing methods to teach our students the ancient ways to purify the body and mind for a better practice. Students also learn chanting to develop a stronger mind and concentration.
During our month we will have experts in their field offer lectures on everything from Ayurveda, Acro-yoga, Pre/Post natal, Bhakti, Sound Healing, The Business of Yoga and much more. You will get a taste of all the subcultures of yoga, leaving you inspired on this life long journey!

General Practitioner, Teacher and Pre-Natal Expert Faculty
Menik was born and grew up in Bali, which was a great privilege for her to immerse herself and feel the positive vibe in this beautiful, spirit-filled island. She spent most of her life in Bali except when she had an opportunity to study medicine in Yogyakarta. Once she graduated from medical school, she came back to Bali and started working here as a medical professional.
She has worked at an International hospital in Bali for 5.5 years before she decided to resign. She decided to follow her inner voice to discover a new chapter in her life, a new adventure, that could fulfill her soul. She started to travel more, explore new hobbies like photography and finally got hooked onto Yoga. It made her happier having a life outside medicine.
Right from the start she could feel the positive energy flowing through by body after a class. She tried various different styles and began practicing more regularly. Finally, she did her yoga teacher training to learn more. She believes Yoga teacher training is not merely to hone your asanas but more to build a strong foundation of understanding of what yoga is all about. Now she does her own daily practice not only on mat, but off the mat. Now, she is not only a full time practicing doctor but also a proud addition to our team where she gets a chance to share her daily practice and everything she has learned.
