– The Luminary Courses at Blooming Lotus Yoga –
Joining us for another YTT is a wonderful opportunity to go deeper in sadhana and yogic knowledge (vidya). It is a precious time to spend with your teachers, other students (sangha or community), and the Way of Yoga Dharma.
The Luminary Courses are offered completely for free as a means of supporting your continuing education in the depths of yoga and your on-going spiritual evolution.
Upon the successful completion of this course, you will be awarded an official “Certificate of Advanced Yoga Teacher Training” for 100 HRS. Please note these certificates are not affiliated with Yoga Alliance.
Each year we are limited in the number of Luminaries (return grad students) that we can invite per YTT program, and as a result, need to have an application process from which we will select our return Luminaries for each program.
As such, please spend some focused time, in a calm environment, reading the following and filling out your application form with all the relevant details asked for, so that we may assess if this is in alignment for us all.
This is a rare time for us to take in our life to deepen our connection inside, spend time with our teachers and like-minded students, and be devoted to sadhana (spiritual practices) and higher learning (vidya). We recommend that you seize this opportunity like a fish out of water jumping back to the ocean to return home. As such, we invite you to take part in as much of the program as possible- with the greatest importance placed on our meditation sessions.
This is a gift to our students – our Luminaries – and as such we don’t require any tuition. We simply ask that if during your time with us, and if possible beforehand, you can contribute to the world with some SEVA (self-less service). This SEVA may entail such projects as helping with the transcription of and organization of the teachings of the great Masters – or helping to further develop yogic resources, and other dharmic activity related to our publications – the “Blooming Lotus Press”. In this way, we ask that each return student – Luminary – bring his/her own laptop and USB or hard drive to Bali if possible.

All Luminaries will need to live off-site and commute into the retreat venue. Once you have been selected we will share your contact details (emails) with each other so that you can either organize living together off-site by renting a house/villa or you may wish to find your own individual accommodations and transport.
Please note, that you will need to either motorbike into the course daily (rentals can be around $2-$3/day), or we can help arrange a vehicle pick-up to/from the retreat center (cost is dependent on the numbers sharing the taxi and distance from the shala). Because this needs to be arranged ahead of time, it is wise to source out your accommodations beforehand as the Ubud area can be quite busy.
We will also be able to offer our Luminaries the opportunity to join us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the low cost of $16/day for all 3 meals. All meals will be organic vegan. This is by far one of the best deals in terms of food/costs that you can find and we highly recommend this option unless you are already living in Bali and have a kitchen, and have sourced out your grocery options. Eating together with the other students – your sangha/community – provides you with an opportunity to connect with each other and spread more love.
