Wake up! That's the message of the Yoga Teacher. It's a
call to wake ourselves up first. As we do so, we increasingly
live the magnificence that we are, see it in others, and
guide them to realize it too.
The Vibrant Living Yoga teacher training originated in Daniel
Aaron's life dedicated to yoga and awakening. Awareness
of our incredible potential for happiness, and the knowledge
that we are naturally encoded with everything we need to
actualize it, has led Daniel Aaron on amazing journeys in
the fields of health and consciousness. Yoga is an integral
component of my explorations, and continues to delight me
as vehicle for guiding others.
In the training we experience the essence of Yoga through
a unique and holistic synthesis of the best possible methods,
harmonized through the timeless wisdom of ancient scripture
and philosophy applied in a contemporary context. The revolutionary
model of the Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Training intensive
benefits from today's top teachers to illuminate a curriculum
that is as thorough as it is diverse.
we create the ultimate Yogic environment for learning and transformation:
a community of like-minded individuals from around the world that
supports one another in living our true potential. Every
component and detail is top caliber, including the expertise
of the exceptional guest faculty, the natural beauty and heart
of Bali, the abundant, simple luxury of Anahata Villas, the healthiest,
tastiest organic living food nutrition, and so much more.
The Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Training is suitable
for any level of experience. Whether you are already
teaching, about to begin or are newly acquainted with the benefits
of yoga, waking up to who you really are not only frees you to
live the life you always knew was possible, it also frees others
- just by being you. Deepening your skills, understanding, confidence
and presence in this foundational teacher training enables you
to reach people more effectively through your authentic experience
of yoga. It provides you with a comprehensive yoga education and
exceeds the requirements for Yoga Alliance's 200-hour
certification. You will dive deeply into extraordinary
living, yoga and teaching.
Note - This training is not for everyone!
Though there is no prerequisite of yoga experience - as the state
of Yoga is available to us all now - an attitude of genuine desire
to immerse yourself in this intensive program, commitment
to be present and participate to the best of your ability
in all classes, an eagerness for challenge and a willingness to
venture beyond your comfort zone, are absolutely necessary. In
other words, if you`re only interested in the certification,
a leisurely yoga retreat or holiday, this training is not for
It is probable that after this training your life will not be
the same. Seen from new heights, previous terrain may look or
feel completely different. Some of the tools we play with include
periods of introspection through silence, juice fasting,
exercises in exploring inter and intrapersonal awareness,
and more. The Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Training is ideal for
those who wish to create something new, to fly higher.
“Daniel is a caring and
dedicated yogi who has experienced the fullness of the teachings
and brings that fullness to all those with whom he shares.”

here to see what Faculty say about their experience
The island of the gods, Bali and her people is a culture
Yoga International magazine describes as ‘living
yoga.' Spirituality, harmony with nature, peacefulness
- these elements embody the Balinese way of life. Ubud,
an artist's Mecca, is the cultural heart of Bali. Embedded
in rice terraces, temples and powerful energy, at a slight
elevation so cooler than the nearby coastal heat, Ubud's
climate has turned it into the perfect yogic destination.

I choose living food to enhance my life. For most of us,
what we eat affects how we feel. Happily I've discovered
that the healthiest food is also the best tasting. I eat
the best food ever – yummy, vibrant, rejuvenating
– just in case we are what we eat .
Fresh daily coconuts, tropical fruits, organic salads
and raw chocolate is the ideal nourishment for the yogic
lifestyle. Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Training is happy
to present you a month of Gourmet, high vibration Living
Food. (Delicious cooked vegetarian food will also be available,
