Hey, it’s Jasmine.

Jasmine Web.jpg

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.

I never imagined life would take me down this path, now I not only teach at the same studio I trained with, my the dream of owning a meaningful business with my husband Rafael became true! Radiantly Alive has become our home and we would be honored if it becomes yours, too.

You have already checked out the general information about the training, now we’d like to go deeper and share more about the powerful experience you'll go through when you join us.

After years of experience and pouring our hearts into it, we’ve created this training thinking about what would be the best for you. We know the power of being supported through community…

… we build on that…  

… we are a family, you will feel it from the moment you first contact us…

… from then on you become one of us, we have you covered, you can count on us…

You will join something that is much more than a regular YTT...  It will be a transformative experience.

The experience


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 Fire, Air, Earth and Water, 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 and interiorizing yoga philosophy in our minds and hearts. All this will deepen in a way which creates balance, wellbeing and transformation.

Throughout the years, Radiantly Alive’s trainings have constantly evolved. All of us involved with the creation of this training have been through it ourselves. From the culmination of our experiences (and love of growth!) we have developed the most recent version of this YTT to be holistic and innovative.

The main question we asked ourselves is what makes an amazing yoga teacher?

Is it someone who can balance on their fingertips while reciting yoga philosophy? No. It’s someone who is REAL.

  • Someone who can hold space for others.
  • Who is vulnerable.
  • Who is authentic.
  • Someone who has gone DEEP within themselves so they can inspire others to go on the same journey.

Put simply, someone who has the fire within them to ignite their passion to make others shine. In yoga, we call this ‘Tapas’.

 

>> Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not. <<

THIS TRAINING IS GOING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

As you can imagine now, we are not just talking about deepening your practice or giving you the skills you need to teach. Those things WILL change, of course, we will get to that soon.  

Though we are interested in the BIG stuff:

  • What your purpose and your unique offering to the world is.
  • How you value yourself as a teacher/leader/person.
  • How you interact with others and connect more deeply in all relationships.
  • And so much more…..

From here, all those revelations and discoveries will transform you to be the best version of yourself, the one you already know wants to radiate and you will use them to become an amazing RA Vinyasa teacher! You’ll never look at a Vinaysa Flow class the same way again.

Finally, and just as important, you will make lifelong bonds that transcend friendship. You will become family for life. 

You’ll experience how comfortable you will get with your fellow trainees. Going through all that transformation, learning, and teaching, you will become very close, most probably closer than to other people you have known forever. 

You will join a community that extends far beyond the confines of your training and the studio to Radiantly Alive teachers and friends around the globe.

Who knows, you might like it so much that you might 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, Michaela or Shae did!


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 to a new level.

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.


about Radiantly Alive


Radiantly Alive’s home studio is centered in the spiritual and cultural hub of Bali - Ubud.

This beautiful, safe space located in the center of town overlooks the greenery of the jungle and is just a short walk from the amazing cafes and restaurants that Ubud is globally known for.

We offer our space with an open heart policy, welcoming yogis from all over the world who come here to find mind and body healing. Rekindle your self love, nourish your being and feel inspired to share this energy with the world. Come for the yoga and stay for the family!

We host over 60 classes a week in various styles. The best part - you will have a free pass starting a week before the training and all the way until a week after it finishes so you can explore different yoga styles and teachers.

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.

>> Families are like branches on a tree. We grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. <<

Curriculum 200-hr

 


This is a Vinyasa based training. 

Joining our Teacher Training, 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.

You’re going to put all these new skills and techniques into practice.

Your experience with us is not just technical and theoretical - there is whole lot of personal practice, hands on work-shopping, and even teaching your own sequences from the first week of training.

You’ll learn from amazing RA studio teachers and our world-class, international faculty about the sequencing, anatomy and alignment required to teach RA Vinyasa, based on the principle of unifying breath and flow, along with the communication skills to lead people from the front of the room.

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. 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.<<  
Elizabeth Browning

 

By deepening your personal practice, you’ll develop the strong foundations needed to take your practice to the next level and begin your journey to teaching - if that’s your desired direction.

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

  • Public Speaking
  • History of Yoga
  • Philosophy
  • Anatomy
  • Alignment
  • Assists and Adjustments
  • Powerful leadership
  • Pranayama & Meditation
  • Yoga Mythology

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’ll 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.


FACULTY - INSPIRATION THROUGH VARIETY


Our lead teachers are based at Radiantly Alive, though they train and teach all over the world.

They will be joined by guest teachers with specialist experience who are part of our international faculty. 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.

Sanna Kokkonen - Philosophy

Padmasana Sanna Sharath ws.jpg

Sanna was one of Petri Raisanen’s first Ashtanga Yoga students in the early 90’s. In a small loft room of a dance studio in Helsinki, Finland she practiced this ‘under-ground’ thing called ‘Ashtanga’ and for the next fifteen years she lived a strict disciplined, sweaty, asana based life under the glow of the charismatic Sri K. Patthabi Jois.

Patthabi Jois’ sad departure led eventually to the joyful discovery of Lama Marut, Sanna's wise and witty spiritual mentor who changed the course of her yoga path towards the inner practices: meditation, pranayama and eastern spiritual thinking and philosophy. Lama Marut authorized Sanna to teach Tibetan Heart Yoga – a form of yoga developed secretly inside the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. Her teaching style is therefore not surprisingly firm on the asana side and soft in matters of the heart.

 

Rachel Ellery - Anatomy

Rachel is a UK-trained Osteopath, specializes in teaching human anatomy and movement principles to yoga students/teachers from around the world. Her mantra “educating and moving the world one body at a time” stems from over 24 years of hands on experience and 14 years of teaching.

Her passion to help others through touch and movement began while practicing sports therapy in the UK and Caribbean. As part of her natural progression Rachel studied for an honors degree from the British School of Osteopathy, where she graduated in 2000.

She combines her extensive knowledge of sports therapy, pilates and osteopathy, into a unique interactive anatomy and movement education, that is inspiring, interactive and fun. Rachel has practiced osteopathy and taught anatomy, touch, as well as practical technique in New Zealand, Australia and Indonesia.

Acacia is by far one of the most amazing yoga teachers I’ve ever taken a class from or trained with. The thing I like most about Acacia is that she keeps it real, she makes everyone laugh in class, she’s down to earth, she really cares about her students, and she really makes you feel like you’re part of the family.
— Alice Ons
Sanna is a wonderful, experienced teacher and the class has a safe, accepting atmosphere. I feel like I can be just who I am and be exactly where I am in my practice. No need to pretend to be a “perfect yogi”. Sanna also has a great sense of humor and her jokes crack me up every time!
— Kati
For anyone wanting to test the boundaries of the resistance of their past patterns not serving them, this is the training for you. Besides deepening my practice and creating a foundation as a teacher, it is a blessing to be in this immersion, learning from the best teachers who come with love to teach what they believe in.
— Daria
It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever done in my life. I am so blessed to have learnt so much and chosen a beautiful, spiritual family of my own. Life will never be the same, I have so much love and gratitude for the RA team and all they do.
— Jacki
If you think you are ready to take your life to the next level, shed your old self and embrace a new and radiant life, if your are ready to see the world in a whole new light, then this is the training for you. Life is not a spectator sport.
— Abe
I loved every moment of this training. It’s given me so many valuable things, insights, tools that it feels like the training had the duration of a year. What appeals to me most is the gift RA creates with a caring, loving environment where it feels safe to grow. I’ve fallen in love with yoga even though it wasn’t my intention to become a teacher I definitely feel strong and skilled enough to practice being a teacher because of this training. This training serves everybody best if they open themselves to look within.
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.
— Ana

teacher training FAQ


  • Where should I stay?

    Where you stay is entirely up to you. There are several options at all price ranges throughout Ubud. We’ve made a list of places people have stayed over the years for a variety of budgets. To check it out, click here.

  • What can I expect?

    For one month, you will completely absorb yourself in the ancient arts of asana, meditation, and philosophy. You will open your heart, deepen your practice, and form bonds that will last a lifetime. We will begin each day with a 1 hour pranayama and meditation practice, followed by a vigorous, 2 hour asana class. The rest of the day will be spent learning from teachers who are masters in their fields on a variety of subjects–from asana, to philosophy, to public speaking, to creating the life you want for yourself. There will be plenty of time for some fun too–so don’t worry. Our evening sessions and group activities will have you smiling and feeling the love in ways you never thought possible.

  • Where is the training held?

    The training is held at Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio, in Ubud, Bali. The studio is located in the center of town close to restaurants, shops, and all the yogis you can imagine.

  • Will I have free time?

    The short answer is–yes. However, because this is a 200 hour training and we have a lot to cover, there won’t be large amounts of it. There will be time off each week and meal times and breaks are yours.

  • What kind of certification will I receive?

    You will receive a 200 Hour Certificate of Completion from Radiantly Alive. Radiantly Alive is a fully accredited Yoga Alliance Yoga School. You may use this certificate to apply for certification with Yoga Alliance.

  • How early should I arrive prior to the training?

    This is entirely up to you. If you are travelling long distances, you may want to allow some extra time to get settled in. Also, please consider your Visa restrictions (see Visa section below).

  • 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).

  • What kind of food is available?

    The food in Ubud is absolutely amazing. Whether omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, or completely raw, this town caters to all tastes. Click here for just a small sampling of what Ubud has to offer.

  • What should I bring?

    While there will be plenty of time for rest and integration, the training can be a very consuming experience. For that reason, we recommend that you bring what you need with you. Don’t worry though, if you forget anything, you can find it here in Ubud.

    One note: We have a number of special evenings and events planned while you’re with us. One of these nights requires a certain type of dress – please pack a ‘white’ outfit, something that is below knee length for women, and covers the shoulders (men and women).

    We suggest packing:

    • Your favorite yoga mat. If you prefer not to travel with your mat, we also have them at the studio.
    • Comfortable yoga clothes
    • Pool necessities, including swimsuit and sunscreen.
    • Comfortable footwear (flip-flops, open air shoes, etc. are practical).
    • Toiletries, including natural mosquito repellent. It will be provided in the yoga shala and during all class and activities, better if you have your own for meals time and night.
    • Any special medications/treatments you may need.
    • Class notebook, personal journal, pens.
    • Electric adapter (two round pins, 220 volt)
    • Refillable water bottle

  • What is included in the cost?

    Cost includes tuition, a manual and all materials, transportation to and from airport, free classes at Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio 1 week before, during, and 1 week after the training.

  • 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. If you elect to get a visa that requires a renewal during the course of the training we cannot guarantee you will have the time and availability to leave the training site to do so.

  • 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.

  • How good at Yoga do I have to be to attend?

    We recommend you have at least 1 year experience practicing yoga, however there are no specific asana or fitness requirements.
