AWAKEN & FLOW
100-hour 11-day format
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia — Summer 2020

bali immersion details
Known as the “Island of the Gods,” Ubud is one of the world’s most powerful hubs of healing, art and rejuvenation. In a constant performance of timeless rituals, Balinese people practice ancient traditions and mingle with modern-day yogis, a reciprocal interplay of east meets west. Meals are served on banana leaves, your breakfast picked straight from the trees, and you experience a palpable presence of spiritual awakening at every turn.
Here, you are bound to unfold, unwind, nourish, explore and expand.
Awaken & Flow is a 100-hour foundational immersion for The Craft of Teaching Yoga. We study yoga philosophy, history, sequencing, anatomy, chakras, and so much more. Our Bali experience can serve as the first half of your 200-hour yoga teacher training certification with The Craft. Alternatively, this immersion offers 100 hours of continuing education credits if you are already certified. Not interested in teaching? No problem. Fascinated practitioners are welcome to join us, as well.
our balinese life
Each day is unique in Bali. Our Ritual practice and learning sessions provide a stable container for self-exploration and expansion. Long breaks give space for nourishment, rest, or massage. Prepare to be surprised, as the spontaneous nature of Bali will likely take our learning outdoors in beautiful and inspiring locations.

rise with the sun to the call of roosters, bustle of scooters, and the song of exotic birds
feel the warm hug of the jungle air
nourish with exotic fruits and elixirs
settle into the Ritual for an unhurried dive into our selves
Our morning Ritual is an introspective practice. We weave tried-and-true teachings into the fabric of our beings until the wise words are no longer conceptual, but instead felt and recognized. In concert with the Ritual, we remember our wholeness and connection to everyone and everything around us.
absorb layers of knowledge on philosophy, anatomy, teaching, energetic healing, and so much more
participate in dynamic hands-on workshops catered to every learning style
take a refreshing dip in our private pool for a study break
connect with other trainees through discussion and group work
Our afternoons are dedicated to learning. We experience hands-on workshops, non-dual philosophy discussions, mini-meditations, practice teaching, and lectures. The world of yoga is vast, and expansive, but we layer on the learning in an intentional way so each lesson prepares us for what comes next.
nourish yourself with a local, home-cooked dinner with our private Balinese chef
enjoy an optional in-room massage before our final evening session
cool off in the pool, or bask in the sun, or both!
learn to share yoga with our evening lecture & practice teaching sessions
Our evenings are reserved for integration and restoration. Take it easy, connect with one another, and allow your minds to recoup from posturing. Our evening lesson focuses on applying the day of learning to your teaching. We practice teach, we laugh, we ask questions, and we slowly become yoga instructors.
our bali home
Our home, pictured above, is a private commune featuring Indonesian architecture, modern amenities and luxurious comfort. Nestled in plush tropical gardens, perched by a river and surrounded by lovely rice fields. You may never want to leave this place.
Our personal chef prepares lunch & dinner daily, we have a private pool, and our very own yoga shala.
Each bedroom is its own oasis, providing a retreat from stimuli and a meditative space to center yourself and relax. Enjoy a large bed, air conditioning, and WIFI.
Our daily rituals take place in the Shala, which is a beautiful studio integrated with the natural Balinese landscape. The shala harmonizes with the alive environment surrounding it, and it embracing us Crafters with a warm, healing, and peaceful energy.
