Yoga Teacher Training Bali Indonesia - An Unforgettable Experience

Our yoga teacher training in the heart of Ubud Bali affords students an opportunity to experience all that beautiful Bali has to offer: mountain scenery, cultural events, boutique shopping, healthy food, a peaceful easy-going lifestyle, and the warmth of its people. It's only a short distance from some of Bali's best beaches. Ubud is treasured by the Balinese and visitors alike for its legendary healing energy. The villages surrounding Ubud are known for their artists and artisans, who pass down their knowledge and skills from generation to generation. It is a hub of woodworking, stone carving, silversmiths, textiles, painting, ceramics, dance, massage, and of course yoga. Ubud continues to draw yogis and yoginis from around the globe for its perfect blend of beauty, health, and spirituality.

You might think that yoga teacher training abroad is a big investment, however Bali Indonesia has a very low cost of living. In fact, much cheaper than many other destinations. With the money saved on daily expenses, many of our customers have found the total cost for their 200hr or 300hr yoga training program to be significantly less expensive than other options they have explored. Bali is also a gateway to many other amazing and exotic destinations in Asia that you'll want to consider exploring either before or after your bali yoga teacher training.

Ubud Bali Indonesia

Rent a bicycle or motorbike and cruise around the rice fields surrounding Ubud. After the training, you can spend time investigating Bali, which has the well-deserved nickname of "Island of the Gods." Bali boasts varied landscapes of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides. Its culture is colorful, deeply spiritual and unique, being the only Hindu state in Indonesia. With world-class surfing and diving, a large number of cultural, historical and archaeological attractions, and an enormous range of accommodations, this is one of the world's most popular and award-winning island destinations.

 

A few suggestions for your visit to Bali, before or after your yoga teacher training:

* Amed - an area of peaceful, traditional fishing villages featuring black sand beaches, coral reefs and excellent diving
* Bukit Peninsula - the southernmost tip of Bali, with world class surfing, great beaches, and the must-see cliff-hanging Uluwatu Temple
* The Gili Islands - a trio of small islands near Bali and Lombok, with no cars or motorbikes and turquoise waters
* Kintamani - active volcano Mount Batur, great mountain scenery, mountain bike tours, cooler temperatures
* Nusa Lembongan - good diving, snorkelling and surfing, and a great place to relax
* Nusa Penida - wild, rugged and untamed and as off-the-beaten-path as you will get in Bali
* West Bali National Park - trekking, bird watching and diving. Bali's only substantial natural protected area

* We recommend planning your trip to arrive early or stay after the training, as you won't want to miss out on everything this rich and vibrant island has to offer.

 

Ubud Bali Indonesia Travel Information

Map of Bali  - Ubud Bali yoga teacher training all inclusive

 

Planning Your Trip

Students should arrive in Bali no later than the morning of the first day of training. We will meet for an opening circle in the late afternoon. Our first morning practice is the next day, and the training ends at 6pm on the final day. Students should plan for departure after breakfast on the following day.

 

Travel Insurance

You are strongly encouraged to purchase your own travel insurance. We can't emphasize this enough. Stuff happens. This will cover you for any medical care you need, loss/damage of any goods, and any disruption or cancellation of your travel. Choose the "cancel for any reason" option for the most coverage. We have had very good experience with www.worldnomads.com.

 

Visas

Please ensure your passport is valid for more than 6 months after arrival, and that it contains several blank pages. This will prevent issues such as refused entry into the country when you check in with your airline.

There are 2 visa options available, depending on your time requirements.

Visa on Arrival - citizens of over 50 countries may apply for a visa on arrival (VOA) when they arrive at the airport in Indonesia. There are special lanes for this at immigration in the arrivals area. The costs are US$25 for 30 days, payable on the spot. It's easiest to hand them the exact amount in US currency, but this is not necessary, since they accept most currencies. The 30-day visa may be extended for a further 30 days by paying an additional US$25 and extra fee of approximately US$25/30. You will have to leave Indonesia and return if you wish to stay longer than 60 days.

Tourist Visa: This visa is available at certain Indonesian embassies worldwide. It is a 2 month tourist visa, extendable on a monthly basis, for a fee (USD 50 - 60 per month), for up to 6 months in total. This visa needs to be organized in your country of residence prior to your departure for Indonesia. Should you wish to spend more than 60 days in Indonesia, we recommend this option.

Officially, an onward/return ticket is a requirement for a visa, and visitors are frequently asked to show their ticket on arrival.

A departure tax of IDR 200,000 is charged on your exit from Indonesia, which you must pay in cash.

Note: This visa information is provided as a guide only. Please check with the Indonesian Consulate in your home country for the most accurate and up-to-date Indonesian visa information.

 

Arrival by air

Book your flight to Denpasar (DPS, also known as Ngurah Rai).

 

On arrival in Bali Indonesia:

Upon arrival at Denpasar Airport, Bali, we have arranged airport pickup for our teacher training guests who have booked all-inclusive packages. Look for the driver holding an Azadi Retreat sign. Ubud is about a one hour drive from the airport.
*Please note that airport transfers are not transferrable to other dates and locations.

 

Transport in Ubud / getting around

Ubud is a very walkable town. You can also hire cheap taxis or rent a bicycle or scooter. A shuttle is available to take you to the center of town on days off.

 

Health & Safety

As for all destinations, you should check your government's travel advisories before you depart, follow your own wisdom with regards to this, and listen to local advice when you arrive.

Vaccinations - check what vaccinations you need to travel to Indonesia and ensure you have the required vaccinations well before departure date.

Hygiene and food/water - there are some risks of traveler's diarrhea, by far the most common problem affecting travelers. It is important to drink only bottled/boiled water, choose food carefully and wash your hands regularly. Please do not drink the tap water, and do not brush your teeth with it. It is unsuitable for consumption.

Mosquito-borne diseases - Although Bali is usually not affected, there are a number of mosquito-borne diseases in Indonesia, so it is recommended you bring repellent and long clothing to cover your skin at dawn/dusk.

 

What to bring

- Several changes of your favorite lightweight yoga clothes. Our practice space is open-air, and it gets warm! Laundry service is cheap on the island, so no need to overpack.
- A sarong - a wonderful multipurpose item that keeps bugs away during savasana, covers your legs to visit temples, and will ward off any evening chill. These are also sold on the island.
- Comfortable sandals or flip-flops are a must, and should be easy removed as most people here do not wear shoes indoors.
- Swimwear and a beach towel
- Hat
- Sunscreen
- First aid kit (antibiotics, hydrocortisone, aspirin, antibiotic cream, band-aids)
- Mosquito repellent
- Personal medication (drugs here are unreliable, cheap knock-offs)
- Earplugs (we like the moldable silcone variety, e.g. from Mack's)
- Sanitary products
- Adapter for electronics: Europe (KAEU)
- Flashlight
- Refillable water bottle
- Notebook & pen
- Required reading as book or ebook
- Yoga mat (you can also purchase in Ubud. As a lightweight travel mat, we like Jade Travel Mat)
- Mat cleaner ( we like Herban Essentials' yoga wipes)

Anytime you go into a temple for a ceremony or tourist attraction you MUST wear a long sleeve shirt, pants or preferably sarong that covers your knees.

 

Yoga Props

Our venues will be supplying yoga mats, belts, blocks and meditation cushions. However we strongly recommend bringing your own yoga mat for optimal hygiene and comfort. You'll be spending a lot of time on it during the training.

Weather

Bali is in the tropics, and always has quite a humid and hot climate. Ubud, however, is generally cooler than the coastal areas. You can expect pleasant daytime temperatures between 20 to 33 degrees C or 68 to 93 degrees F, year round. From June to September the humidity is low, and it can be quite cool in the evenings. Ubud is in the mountains and has a unique microclimate where you can expect some clouds and showers throughout the year.

 

Money

ATM's are plentiful in Ubud, and many restaurants and cafes accept credit cards. You can also exchange foreign cash at local exchange offices. Don't forget to tell your bank and credit card companies the daes that you will be traveling, or they might cut off your funds for fraud protection. Asia prefers Visa / MasterCard. American Express is generally not welcome.

 

Internet & SIM Cards

WiFi is free, fairly fast and ubiquitous in Ubud. Sim cards are easily available and cheap in Indonesia if you wish to make local phone calls on your global ready phone. You can buy new credit (pulsa) in convenience stores.
