Ideal For Beginner, Intermediate And Even Advanced Students, This Training Course Focuses On Empowering You To Develop A Strong Foundation In The Essential Principles Of The Hatha, Vinyasa And Restorative-Yin Style Of Asana.


Rejuvenate In World-Class Luxury So You Can Live A More Joyous, Creative, Loving & Remarkable Life


10 Hours Of Online Pre-Course Content Immediately Available Upon Registration To Help You Prepare And Get Even More Out Of Your Training

This Course Is For You If:

You are looking for transformation, want an extraordinary experience in Bali with positive & like-minded people, and wish to learn powerful new tools from inspiring teachers that will take your practice to the next level.
You want to learn a clear framework on how to skillfully sequence vinyasa, hatha and restorative/yin classes in a safe and intelligent way.
You want exquisite, modern and luxurious accommodations in a naturally stunning location at a world-class yoga resort. A safe, relaxed and fun sanctuary where you can immerse into the yogic lifestyle, but still be close enough to Ubud to enjoy its trendy shops and fabulous restaurants on your days off
You’ve already attended another 200 hr. YTT, but feel that you did not get a complete, holistic or spiritual understanding of yoga and mostly learned about anatomy and asanas.
You want to learn life changing positive-psychology principles that will improve your health, enhance your relationships, and help you accomplish your life goals
You want a step-by-step meditation technique that will allow you to find inner peace, focus your mind, unleash your creativity and open the doors to spiritual freedom.
You are traveling solo and slightly nervous about being alone in a foreign country.   Not to worry – we will help make your journey here as effortless, easy and safe as possible.  An incredible team of soul-sisters is here to support you and all the other amazing and positive people we attract.  Whether you come solo, with a friend, or as a couple, the course set up allows you to naturally bond with people. This is a space where life-long friendships can be made and kindness is the keyword.
You need to heal your body-image issues, heal past-wounds or heal your heart if it’s been broken.

This Course Is NOT Really For You If:


You only want a new-age fitness-based training and don’t want to learn the roots of yoga or focus on spiritual development.

You want complex anatomy lessons so you can use yoga only for physical exercise.  We take a more practical and holistic approach focusing mostly on alignment and safety.  This makes it easy for students to remember the key principles and not get overwhelmed with needing to memorize hundreds of medical terms.
You don’t want to learn meditation nor develop your own spiritual practice.
You wish to teach ashtanga, bikram or hot yoga.

Experience Love, Laughter And Life-Changes By Living Your Best Life In Our Light-Hearted, Fun, & Nurturing Community

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Blooming Lotus Yoga so unique?

Our Vision: Blooming Lotus Yoga was founded with the intention of spreading the sacred wisdom of classical yoga by adapting the mystical and spiritual approach of the Vedic tradition to meet the needs of modern spiritual seekers.  Through our comprehensive 8-step yoga training process we have developed an innovative new way for students to study the noble art of yoga and meditation without the struggles associated with traditional teacher trainings or the nonsense of the new-age.  Our aim is to empower you with practical and transformative self-development tools which purify the body/mind at the deepest level so the remembrance of your own Divinity may awaken. Through this spiritual awakening you will transform into a real yogi or yogini and become capable of guiding others on the path as you live a more balanced, compassionate & enlightened life.

Our Affordability: While we offer one of the most unique yoga teacher training courses in Bali, we also have some of the most affordable luxury accommodations available on the island.  Without sacrificing our high-standards of excellence we have worked hard to keep costs low and we encourage you to look around and you will see that our prices are at least half or even one-third less than anywhere else.  If you find something lower in price it is likely because their accommodations are less than exquisite.

Our Kindness: A portion of your tuition costs are donated to charities serving some of the most impoverished communities in Bali and rural India.  By participating in this course you are directly contributing to relieving the suffering of countless people in dire need.

What are the pre-requisites?
1) A minimum of 2 years of dedicated yoga practice.

Exceptions can be made if you have an accumulated experience of 1 year of dedicated yoga practice in addition to meditation and/or healing training.

2) A minimum age of 21 years old.

To become a skilled yoga teacher takes many years of not only yoga asana practice, but also many years of life experience.  Younger students are encouraged to wait, and mature into their practice and range of life experiences before considering becoming a teacher.


3) A strong grasp of the English language.  

The Blooming Lotus Yoga courses are conducted in English, and therefore we ask that all students be fluent in English so they can read, write and communicate the course material.

How do I pay for the course?


A deposit of $500 USD, via credit/debit card or Paypal, is required within 48 hours of acceptance into the course and forms a part of the tuition cost.*


The remaining tuition payment can be paid through an online credit/debit card payment or PayPal*.

Late Registrations: If you apply less than 2 months before the course begins both the deposit and tuition are due within 48 hours of acceptance.

Please contact us if you need to extend any of these deadlines or if you need other payment options.

*excludes 9.3% tax & service fee
**excludes 2% transaction fee


Can I really take the course again for free?
Absolutely! Yoga is a continual journey of self-discovery and growth. After you graduate, we welcome you to join us again & again to become a part of our global yoga family.  We are here to support, mentor and offer you guidance whenever you need.
What is your refund policy?

In the event that you are unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances, we have a risk-free policy where you can transfer your deposit and tuition to another course within the next 3 years (subject to availability) with a minimum of 1 month notice.

  1. ACCOMMODATION/MEALS – Once the course has begun the accommodation and meal costs are non-refundable.

    *minus tax and service fees

Are meals included? Where do we eat?

Our all-inclusive onsite accommodation options include 3 delicious meals per day at our Amrita restaurant, excluding days off.  During the 23-day course you will have 3 full days off which you can use to explore Bali.  On these days, meals are not provided, as most students choose to eat out at the many amazing restaurants in Ubud or anywhere else in Bali they may choose to visit.

If you choose the off-site room option, you will need to arrange your own meals or eat with the group by opting in to the meal plan – which includes 3 meals per day, for 20 days, for only $360 USD.

How about special diet requests?

All meals are organic & vegan and we are able to accommodate low-gluten diets and peanut allergies. However, as all meals are set for the entire group we cannot cater to any other special request, preference or allergy.

How are people paired in shared rooms?
Shared onsite accommodations are for 2 people per room.  We place women with women, and men with men, UNLESS you register for 2 people which feel comfortable together in close quarters (such as a partners or friends). This allows for maximum harmony.

As our yoga courses are primarily filled with women, for any given training we cannot guarantee that we will have 2 men that wish to stay in the same room type. As such, we request all single men that wish to register for our course to do the following:


  1. Register with a friend
  2. Choose the Private Room or Private Villa option to guarantee your space
  3. Choose the off-site room option
  4. Contact us to see if we have a shared space available or be placed on a waitlist
If I choose the offsite room how do I get to classes?
Living offsite requires that you commute to the daily classes and is ideal for residents of Bali or anyone that is comfortable driving a scooter or can arrange a driver.
