Hey, it’s Jasmine.

As I have shared with you, my experience of traveling to Bali and joining the Yoga Teacher Training with Radiantly Alive sparked massive changes in my life.

So let me take you deeper now and share a little bit more about the powerful experience you'll go through when you join us for a Level 2 teacher training.

After years of experience and pouring our hearts into it, we’ve created this training thinking about what would be the best for you. Be sure: You will join something that is much more than a regular YTT...  It will be transformative!

If you are thinking about coming… make the leap and do it. You will not regret it and what you gain will surpass any expectations. It is challenging, it is intense, and you will come out the other side stronger than you know and permanently transformed.

The experience

We promise you, this is not just another teacher training! To get a deeper sense of what you can expect click the video below...

We’ve been inspired by the lush, flowing, and enlivening abundance of Bali’s natural world and culture. We've drawn from the energies of Air, Fire, Water and Earth, which are deeply connected to the roots of yoga philosophy. These elements are weaved into the training as they are within all of us, and are harnessed through our practice.

We delve into these energies through participating in ancient Balinese Hindu rituals in some of Bali's most sacred temples, practicing asana by moving our bodies synchronized to our breath whilst ebodying yoga philosophy in our minds and hearts. All this will deepen in a way which creates balance, wellbeing and transformation.

With your Level 1 200 hour yoga teacher training already completed, your first steps into teaching have been taken. Most of you will already have solid real world teaching experience, and are now looking to take things deeper – and that’s exactly what our Level 2 is about.

We combine the traditional focus on

  • asana,

  • sequencing,

  • alignment,

  • adjustment,

  • functional anatomy & body reading

  • teaching skills with a deep exploration into who you are as a teacher,

and what your gifts you have to give to your students. With your gifts uncovered, you’ll work with our team to develop them as a message, learn how to consciously use social media get yourself out there and explore the business side of yoga. Importantly you’ll learn the tools to reach more people, in a way that feels authentic to them, and to you.


As our Level 1 and Level 2 trainings are run simultaneously, you’ll have the chance to apply what you learn in adjustments and leadership directly to level 1 trainees. We’ll come together as one big group on occasion, then separate to different shalas as each training progresses. This gives you the chance to practice in hone your skills not just theoretically or with one another, but with direct application, similar to what it would be in a live class setting.

Additionally, we offer our trainees the unique opportunity to actually teach in our studio as part of your training toward the end of the course. You will work in groups and co-create and present a live workshop, open for all public to attend. This has much value in the practical application of sharing insights from what you’ve been learning for our month-long journey.

We’ll also help guide and cultivate your message and unique skills and interests preparing a Karma project (see more under prerequisite section on this page) – with steps to be completed as part of your certification requirements. Each week you’ll meet with the Radiantly Alive studio owner, Rafael, to develop a project to put into action after the training as service to the world and to express what you have to offer. In the past, we’ve had trainees create everything from pop-up yoga in the park, to yoga events with more than a 1000 people attending!

By the end of this training you will have advanced your asana and teaching skills, have real world experience of what you've learned, have a clear understanding of your strengths as a teacher and a project you can then put directly into action. In addition, the whole time you’ll be meeting and connecting with fellow trainees and the RA staff, undergo deep transformation and leave feeling like you’ll always have a home to come back to in Ubud.

You will join a community that extends far beyond the confines of your training and the studio, but rather to Radiantly Alive teachers and friends around the globe. Who knows, you might like it so much that you decide to stay even longer after the training just to soak it all up... and maybe you even stay with us, as our teacher’s James, Jasmine, Lucinda or Shae did!

hear from our students

Don't only take our word for it... hear from some of our students to learn just how powerful our Yoga Teacher Trainings are and click the video below.


Your time won’t be spent with a single teacher. This is not a ‘one teacher one way’ training.

Our lead teacher, James Mattingley, is based at Radiantly Alive, though he trains and teaches all over the world.

In addition to James, we are bringing in assisting teachers and multiple teaching faculty, who are part of our international RA family, that specialise in body reading, alignment, advanced asana, business and marketing, leadership skills – all to create a program that allows you to apply the parts that most resonate with you. You’ll also take classes and have sessions with our RA trained resident studio teachers.

Though the main focus will be RA Vinyasa, you’ll experience different styles of yoga and along with this, different styles of teaching. Each person brings their own unique flavor, demonstrating that what really makes a strong teacher so much about how they embody their unique talents and expression of who they are.

You'll get a chance to explore your creative side, resonating with practices and teaching styles that fit you best, and drawing from this as inspiration to be yourself and deliver your own unique teaching.



James Mattingley

Hi I’m James,

I’m originally from the most beautiful country on earth – New Zealand. I travelled for about 6 years before finding my home in Ubud, Bali.

I’ve trained and been inspired by so many incredible teachers in movement and yoga: martial arts, yoga, fascial exploration, kirtan and much, much more.

I’m most passionate about teaching teachers. About cultivating our innate ability to express ourselves at the front of the room. To stand, speak and lead with depth, strength and authenticity – to teach yoga as a practice of yoga.

Each of us expressing our own gifts, from our own depth, can’t help but light others up.

James is a natural leader, and knows how to share a wealth of knowledge with ease and humor. He pushed us to empowerment and helped us embrace our individuality as teachers.

Carlos Tao - Functional Anatomy, Body Reading & Philosophy


Hi, my name is Carlos Tao,

I travel broadly but have spent a lot of time in Bali and Southeast Asia offering workshops and trainings and master classes. After I finished my teacher training is where my learning and exploring truly began. I was inspired by Jason Lawner who mentored me and introduced me to incredible teachers such as Christina Sell and others who had a deep thirst for intelligent alignment. However as great as those teachers were, I felt there was something missing or incomplete in what was being taught. 

I researched and practiced and spent the next years, studying movement modalities and philosophies from different disciplines trying to find the thread that underlies the spirit of the hero’s journey of human experience. I began to challenge the establishment and widely held beliefs, citing and studying sources on the cutting edge of anatomy, kinesthetics, physiology, embryology and fascial research, seeking out the latest research and re-envisioning  what true healthy movement is and what it truly means to move well, in a way that is sustainable, functional, powerful, transformative, nourishing and in line with the authentic spirit of the search for what we really are.  

I continue to study, research, experience, challenge and evolve the way we meet the practice with intelligence, with important questions, and a heart that is curious, playful, full of passion, rebelliousness and a love of existence and the beauty of the human spirit and the human experience.  

I have a passion for this, for teaching and sharing and can't wait to meet the group for this TT that we are putting together. Its going to be epic.  JUST LIKE YOU!



Persia Juliet - Alignment & Adjustments

Persia Green Goddess-28-squareweb2.jpg

Hello, my name is Persia.

I've lived in Ubud for just a short while and have been warmly welcomed into the RA family.  

I'm originally from Vancouver, Canada and I took my first training at 25 years old in L.A, graduating as a Yoga teacher in 2005. Since then I have taught fulltime in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and now Bali.  

With a variety of trainings from Bikram, Baptiste, BodyMindLife, Les Leventhal, Sarah Powers Yin and Ana Forrest Advanced, my teaching style is an eclectic mix.  

With deep respect to safe alignment and intelligent sequencing, my offering leans more to the felt experience of the practitioner. I love to sequence to chakras, teach in accordance with the moon cycles and weave vedic themes into classes. My greatest passion has always been the journey of the yoga teacher. I've supported many trainings in Australia and even created a workshop series to support 200HR TTs to stay inspired on the path of fulltime teaching. So it's with deep joy that I get to join the RA teaching faculty, to share, learn and grow with esteemed colleagues in such a magical setting as Bali. I look forward to connecting with you soon. 




Geoff Brooks - Pranayama & Mediation

Hailing from Byron Bay in Australia and now experiencing this chapter in Ubud.

I met Yoga 30+ years ago in a Hatha Yoga class on the Northern Beaches of Sydney after a foray into martial arts. We've experienced a number of iterations since, including but not limited to: Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative, Tantra and Bhakti in a range of styles from Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sushkadananda, Anusara, Kundalini and so many more… with a vast array of talented teachers to match - many of whom carried direct wisdom from great masters.

I feel that I’ve been fortunate enough to have experienced a diverse range of styles and techniques and have had a few key teachers who instilled the foundations of Yoga so that each style has become another volume in a beautifully vast encyclopaedia of knowledge.

My technique of sharing the lineage of Yoga is limitless in its application and open in its interpretation, while staying true to the deepest intentions of the practice.


Audrey Sarquilla - Bhakti Yoga


Hi, my name is Audrey. 

I’ve practiced yoga for over 26 years in many different styles and paths. What I’ve learned over 17 years of teaching yoga is that there is no wrong or right way to practice. Ultimately this is “your” yoga. 

I’m excited to share philosophy with all of you during the training and hope to do so with humor, love and humility while honoring all the teachers that have shaped my path along the way.

Excited to meet all of you!


Mark Das - Handstands


Hello, my name is Mark Das.

As a yoga teacher, I’m passionate about the art of hand balancing.

My very first handstand was 8 years ago when I was living as a monk at a Shaolin Kung Fu monastery in China.

For the past 5 years, I’ve been passionately teaching handstands to yoga practitioners around the world. My experience has allowed me to distill the essential elements that make up a solid handstand. I now present this system to my students — both online and at yoga teacher trainings, international workshops, festivals, and weeklong retreats.

I feel blessed I’ve been able to turn my three biggest passions into an actual job — hand balancing, traveling, and teaching.


Joëlle Sleebos - Business of Yoga & Karma Project


Hi I’m Joëlle.

I’m originally from The Netherlands (my root home) and have been living in Cape Town (my heart home) for 5 years. I return to Ubud (my spiritual home) every year and can’t wait to explore the gift of yoga on and off our mats with you in October.

Why I do what I do? To me it is all about CONNECTION. Yoga (re-)connects you to your true self, your dharma, or purpose in life. Yoga cultivates an authentic connection to others and I get really excited when magical collaborations between people and brands come about.

Yoga works; do the work, give back and you will quickly notice how abundant the universe is and that the sky is not the limit. It is only the beginning.


Devon Tao - Flow Converter


Hi, my name is Devon.

I’m from 'everywhere' right now, I guess! I grew up in the United States and now my husband Carlos and I travel, teaching workshops, classes, retreats, bodywork, movement and yoga trainings.

I’ve trained with many great teachers and different styles from all over the world, from Ashtanga and Bhakti in the States, to Vinyasa and alignment based systems in the jungles of South America and beautiful South East Asia.

From these trainings grew a search to uncover the underlying magic in all systems, and how to access that magic through our bodies, our anatomy, our philosophy and how we move.

The more I’ve discovered and learned, the more I’ve fallen in love over and over with the beauty of the body and mind in movement, and how it is accessible to EVERYBODY beyond dogma or styles. 

I love taking the incredible science of anatomy, structure, function, psychology and philosophy and reframing it in a way that is simple, inspiring, entertaining, accessible and transformational.

Melissa Mintodjo - Assistant


Hi there! I’m Melissa.

I am originally from The Netherlands but life led me to Bali where I took my first teacher training at Radiantly Alive 1,5 year ago. After the training I could not imagine leaving Bali or RA and luckily I could stay.

Radiantly Alive gave me the opportunity to teach at the studio!

I love to explore depths within the body and from there move authentically with whatever arises in the moment. Since I am part of the RA team I have assisted on the level 1 training and this time I will be assisting on the level 2! Excited to meet you all!



You’ll also get the pleasure of experiencing our teachers that reside in house and teach day to day here in Bali. They will be offering morning classes/Sadhana sharing their own unique teaching methodologies. Just take a look at the rest of our faculty on About Us to get a taste of who else you may meet.

The level of teaching I have been exposed here at the studio has been out of this world. The authenticity of the teachers and their willingness to serve us has been a highlight for me. I feel connected with myself and the others around me. I feel clarity, love, and I am enjoying living with my intention, and being present and mindful in all aspects of my life. I want to go out and share this with the people around me at home. I feel at peace and I am so happy to have been able to do this. Thank you.

Curriculum 300-hr


This is a Vinyasa based training. 

Joining any of our Teacher Trainings, you will begin a lifelong journey with Radiantly Alive Vinyasa - a precise, breath-led style of practice that will profoundly change the way you practice, learn and teach. If you haven't already, you will discover how to move the body with breath in a way that makes sense and just feeeeeeeeels good.

At the heart of a Vinyasa yoga practice, we are moved from our breath as our bodies experience the invisible forces of the air element that nourishes your cells, provides energy and expansion, allows movement and cleanses your being, and letting go that we practice through yogic breathing in a flowing asana sequence. Your breath is your life. Through our breath we dive into the invisible force of the air element.


>> He lives most life whoever breathes most air.<<

Our Level 2 training is specifically designed for yoga teachers wanting to take their experience and training to new heights.

You will learn more complex structures of sequencing, alignment, anatomy and adjustments from our amazing RA studio teachers and our world-class, international faculty, directly applying these lessons the entire way through the training in real class settings.

What makes this Level 2 training different?

This training is run in conjunction with the Level 1 YTT. In order for you to have a real world experience and practice your newfound knowledge, you will apply your learnings in practice with the Level 1 trainees immediately! It’s knowledge, plus action. 

So how does this look in practice?

You will spend some time in the room with the Level 1 trainees as they move through their curriculum, with some different areas of focus. Additionally, you’ll have private break-out sessions, in intimate groups, with international guest faculty to delve into their areas of speciality (asana, arm balances, adjustments, etc.). The alignment and adjustment you learn one day you’ll turn round and apply on the Level 1 Trainees the next day. 

Large Focus on Business

Whether you are seeking to teach small-scale, or wanting to create a larger studio base, understanding the core elements behind the business of yoga is a key component for your yoga career. You’ll learn the fundamentals of running retreats, studio spaces, scheduling, the role of social media within marketing. You will get a look behind the curtain so to speak.

You’ll leave the Level 2 training with a deeper understanding of yoga, direct experiences of applying what you've learned, and a clear direction to move forward in your yoga career. 

At a glance, all this is part of the curriculum (and more

  • Sequencing

  • Theming

  • Yoga Philosophy

  • Business of Yoga

  • Functional Anatomy and Body Reading

  • Alignment, Assists & Adjustments

  • Pranayama & Meditation

  • Public Speaking

  • Powerful leadership


The schedule will be different for each day, and each training, though below is what to expect on a typical day:

  • 07:00 - 09.00 | Sadhana (Meditation, Pranayama, Asana)

  • 09.00 - 10.30 | Breakfast Break

  • 10:30 - 12:00 | Teaching Lab

  • 12:15 - 13:00 | Anatomy

  • 13:00 - 14:00 | Lunch Break

  • 14:00 - 15:30 | Asana Lab

  • 15:45 - 16:30 | Philosophy

  • 17:00 - 18:00 | Yin Style Practice

This is an intensive style training, though we balance activity with rest. You’ll have all the room you need to learn, grow, breathe and flow. In this training, you will rekindle the flame of your spirit, find a more easeful flow in your life, breathe into a new beginning and ground down into your true self. This is a yoga alliance certified training.



In order to participate in the 300-hr RA YTT, you must have successfully completed a Level 1 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training.


You need at least 50 hours of yoga teaching experience. If you don't have this experience please contact us directly. 


Completion of all RA Level I 200 hour reading prerequisites: 
Please read/view the following resources and write a summary of 300 words on what you found interesting, valuable, and anything else you’d like to share. That’s a total of 1,200 words (as it is 300 words for each one). 

  • ‘The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You are’ by Brene Brown Ph.D.

  • ‘Your Body, Your Yoga: Learn Alignment Cues That Are Skillful, Safe, and Best Suited To You’ by Bernie Clark

  • Ebook: ‘The Anatomy of Fascia’ by James Mattingley

  • Watch this TED Talk: ‘Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are by Amy Cuddy


Completion of reading the following texts, along with a 500 word book report for each book/video (total of 1.500 words):

  • "Your Body, Your Yoga: Learn Alignment Cues That Are Skilful, Safe, and Best Suited To You" by Berni Clark

  • “A Complaing Free World: How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted” by Will Bowen

  • Watch this TED Talk: How Great Leaders Inspire Action

You will find all books at your local bookstore or online on Amazon, purchased at your own expense. The videos are found free online via the link, and the Ebook ‘The Anatomy of Fascia’ we will send to you, once you sign up for the training.

All written reports need to be submitted two weeks prior to the start date of the training. If you are a last minute sign up, don't worry, you can send in the reports latest one month after the training has ended.


One month prior to the start date of your training (where possible):

  • Begin the Complaint Free Challenge (laid out in the book “A Complaint Free World”)

  • Meditation Practice for the four weeks leading up to the training:

    • Minimum 20 minutes

    • Seated meditation

    • For each week, meditate on the following questions:

    • Week 1 How has yoga changed my life?

    • Week 2 Which teachers have most inspired me?

    • Week 3 How do I want my students to feel at the end of a class?

    • Week 4 What gift do I, uniquely, have to give to a class?

Some things to keep in mind: You can choose the style of meditation, though it is to be seated. Rather than thinking of the question the whole time, read it to yourself prior to starting, and once again when you’ve finished. After each sit, journal about what comes through. 



In many ways this is one of the most valuable pieces of your Level 2 teacher training. During the training you will receive coaching and clarity around what your teaching and purpose is. From this place, you’ll be guided through the steps to create your own Karma Project. It will be some event, action, or offering that expresses your unique skills in a free or not-for-profit environment.

Examples from previous years are: the creation of International Yoga Day in Cape Town, pop-up yoga classes for charity in local parks or halls, work with local charities (human and animal) and much, much more.

The groundwork for this will be laid out during the training. There will be requirements and preparations that we will cover that you will need to complete before the end of the training for certification – though the project itself will be completed after the training.



  1. Completion of all pre-requisites

  2. Full participation and attendance of all components of the Level 2 Teacher Training

  3. Successful completion of your Karma project plan

about Radiantly Alive

You can complement your experience by attending workshops on yoga asana, dynamic movement, sequencing, mindfulness,meditation and even astrology. Or receive a healing therapy session of acupuncture, intuitive bodyworks, craniosacral therapy, traditional Chinese medicine or other.

One of the most valuable aspects of our trainings is that you are in a real studio environment with all our resources at your disposal - that means that although this is a Vinyasa training, you will have the chance to sample a variety of styles like Ashtanga, Yin, Sky Yoga (Aerial), amongst others and experience sessions with all our teachers, exposing yourself to different ways of teaching for you to find what resonates best with you.

Many of our trainees have found us through taking our classes. Some have felt drawn to our trainings without yet visiting us. Every trainee felt a connection to our passion for yoga, a healthy lifestyle and radiant living, and has been happy to join our RA family and get to know our amazing Balinese family that make up our staff.

Describing this training, the teachers, the content and the experience is close to impossible.
Ever since the first time I stepped into RA I felt a sense of warmth, joy and contentment. Since the beautiful souls, Rafael and Jasmine took over ownership this feeling was magnified infinitely, with the addition of love, honesty and safety. They have created a space that welcomes and facilitates growth, supported transformation, vulnerability, learning, questioning, open-mindedness, unconditional love… they have created a family. This is exactly what I needed in the training, it has drawn in people/trainees on this level which creates an unimaginable experience to learn, face challenges and grow together.

I am forever grateful to have been given this opportunity. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

the island of the gods

Simply put, Ubud, Bali is incredible.

The location of Radiantly Alive is no coincidence. ‘Ubud’ in Balinese translates to ‘medicine or healing’.

It’s a small town famous for its big energy.

For centuries people have been coming to Ubud to experience the magic of it’s lush jungles, green rice paddies and the beauty of its rich culture.

It's no surprise Ubud and Yoga are an incredible mix.

In the past two decades, Ubud has grown to be recognized as one of the best places to practice yoga in the world.

Everywhere you look you’ll find people carrying yoga mats, attending classes and workshops, and eating more vegetarian and raw cuisine than you can imagine.

During the training you will meet Bali in a more profound way, the energy will be set to get the most of experiencing sacred temples, water blessings, vibrant rituals, and the nurturing culture Bali has to offer as you delve into the abundance of the four elements.

Whoever we are, whatever we do, wherever we live, the energies of the four elements are constant. In Bali those elements are heightened.

In Bali, water flows faster, fire burns hotter, the earth is more dense and deep, and the air is rich with spiritual mystery. Our trainings aim to unify these elements to create a holistic experience for you to journey through these energies within you.

Bali is often referred to as the island of "holy water." Home to a countless number of sacred springs they are a key element in this rich culture’s purification ceremonies.


>> Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.<<
Lao Tzu


Locals believe these rituals assist in cleansing our bodies physically, emotionally and spiritually. As part of our own exploration of water, you will experience a sacred water purification ritual at one of Bali’s holiest and oldest temples.

  • What's the weather like in Bali?

    Bali is approximately 8 degrees south of the equator. So you can expect a tropical, warm and humid climate all year around with two main distinctive seasons: Dry Season (March-October) and Rainy Season (November-February). The temperature is humid and generally 27-31 (77-88 F).

  • Do I need a visa for Bali?

    To enter Indonesia, your passport must have a minimum of 6 months remaining validity from the date of your prospective DEPARTURE FROM Bali. Please be proactive and learn about Visa requirements particular to your own home country in advance of actual travel and ask for confirmation when closer to your departure date since immigration requirements in Indonesia are subject to sudden changes.

    If you decide to enter the country on a free, Visa on Arrival, please know this Visa is not renewable. You will be charged a 300,000 IDR fee for every day you overstay your Visa. If you’re planning to overstay less than 3 days, this may be a more affordable option than obtaining a visa. You may also consider obtaining a 60 day Visa on Arrival ($35 USD) which is renewable after 30 days. If you obtain one of these, please consider, Radiantly Alive cannot assist you with the renewal and cannot guarantee you will have time during the training to go to Immigration for the renewal process.

    We will do our best to keep you updated on any changes we become aware of, however it is solely your responsibility to arrange your visa and paperwork for the time you plan to be in Bali. We strongly recommend you obtain a visa in advance from the Indonesian Consulate in your home country. This will allow you to relax and enjoy the training without concerns of Visa renewal.

  • Do I need travel insurance?

    It may be worth being comprehensively insured to cover all costs and consequences of medical treatment,repatriation, damage/theft/loss of personal belongings, recovery of course fees and flights booked in the event of cancellation or early departure.

  • What about medical care?

    In the case of minor illnesses or injuries, there are a few medical clinics in the local Ubud area and several international clinics closer to the airport. These clinics typically do not accept insurance (though you may be reimbursed through your insurance provider) and are relatively inexpensive. If situations require extreme medical emergency care, patients are evacuated to Singapore. Due to significant cost evacuation care, it is advisable to check this coverage is included on your medical plan.

    Important warning

    it shouldn’t need to be stated though due to the extreme nature of penalties in Indonesia we put an extra cautionary note DO NOT bring any even “mild” drugs/narcotics (other than prescription) into the Country. Violators, even if they are not from Indonesia, are subject to life in a 3rd world prison and the death penalty, and the foreign governments can do very little about it: don’t take any risks.
