There’s no doubt that Bali is one of the best destinations for yoga teacher training. Many flock to the island for spiritual and transformational experiences, as well as to enjoy the beaches, surf the waters, and immerse themselves in the culture that is very welcoming on this island.
Bali has many consistent training options, as well as options that come around one or only a few times a year from yoga schools elsewhere in the world. Whether you’re after the basics of classic Hatha, are craving to learn more of vinyasa, or have no idea what you think you’d like to teach, there are multistyle training for you too.

Combining the two styles gives you the opportunity to create a teaching style for yourself that is reflective of both. Not only will you dive deep into these styles of yoga, but you’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about yin, restorative, acro, and even power yoga. The longer length of this training gives you more time to learn about other styles, take in what you’ve learned, and explore the beautiful island of Bali, which Peaceful Warriors believes is essential and make it a part of their training.
Other than yoga in a truly stunning accommodation that’s only minutes from the beach, you’ll have the opportunity to take a surf lesson and visit a temple in Bali to connect more to this island’s unique culture, and also get a massage.

This serene place for you to study is one of the most booked and reviewed YTT in Indonesia on BookYogaTeacherTraining. The combination of self-development and yoga training goes hand-in-hand, as learning about yourself and understanding yourself is a skill that makes you an incredible teacher.

Aside from the basics, this Yoga Alliance accredited training also goes into the business of yoga, nutrition through Ayurvedic beliefs, and of course diving deep into your self-development. Additional styles are also practiced to encourage your yoga practice development too, which most certainly makes you a more well-rounded yoga instructor.
25 Day 200-Hour Vinyasa, Yin, Myofascial Release, and Meditation Yoga Teacher Training in Nusa Lembongan
Just off the coast of Bali sits the peaceful island of Nusa Lembongan, where the roads are quieter than Bali, the water is bluer, and the overall atmosphere is even more relaxed. This is the location of this next yoga teacher training, that focuses on teaching teachers the power of yin and yang yoga classes. Learning how to tap into both truly brings an exceptional balance for teachers and students.
In this 25-day course, you get to learn the basics and beyond of teaching vinyasa, as well as yin. While the benefits of both styles overlap, there are additional benefits to both as well. The instructors for this course are specialized in their fields so you get very hands-on knowledge from teachers who have been teaching for years. You’ll begin your days at 6:30am and end by 6:30pm, beginning and ending your days with yin/yang yoga classes and your training in between.
24 Day 200-Hour Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in Ubud
For a more classic approach to yoga, look no further than this yoga teacher training course in Ubud. A branch from a yoga school in Rishikesh, Bali Yoga School is a well-regarded school that offers multi-style yoga teacher training including Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa techniques. The combination of multiple styles gives soon-to-be teachers the opportunity to truly adopt a style that works for them as teachers, and also as practitioners.
While this course may be situated in Ubud, you will get time on the beach and maybe even some practice time on the sand! All meals are included, as well as weekend excursions, Kirtan, and movie nights. The course covers all of the basics and more, diving deeper into mediation and pranayama than is usually seen in a 200-hour YTT.

Take your yoga teacher training from a new angle, quite literally, with a 200-hour YTT that also includes aerial yoga training! While this course is 300-hours, you will qualify as a Yoga Alliance 200-hour instructor once you have signed up after training. The aerial yoga is a great bonus that few schools offer.

20 Day 200 Hours Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Seminyak
Perhaps this style of Bikram is more for you. This Bikram YTT in Seminyak is quite focused on the poses so you will take plenty of time to learn about the postures of Hatha and Ashtanga and their basic series. This knowledge is a starting point to later on teach vinyasa with a strong anatomy focus.
The best highlight of this yoga course is how much teaching is involved. While you don’t get as much into philosophy as other courses, you will have ample opportunity to practice teach during your training, around 80% of your training, actually! You will get to enjoy 2 yoga classes a day, daily sunsets on the beach, posture clinics, and lectures, as well as time for personal practice or additional lectures and time to explore Seminyak and around with free time over dinner.
27 Day 200-Hour Multi-Style Yoga Teacher Training in Canggu
While this yoga course in Bali has a strong foundation in Hatha, it will have you prepared as a teacher to teach multiple styles of yoga. A training course that goes into multiple styles is ideal because it gives you the opportunity to discover what your teaching style really is as it’s often different from how one likes to practice (I can speak to experience on that!).
Anandam Yoga School is known around the world and hosts training across 3 countries in India, Indonesia, and Germany. The length of this program offers more of a relaxed pace and will give you more time to take in the information you’re learning. If you can afford the time for a longer program, I definitely recommend it. The highlights of this program are truly that it gives you an excellent knowledge of the basics of yoga, multiple styles, and designing a class, which is what a lot of new teachers find the most difficult.
21 Day Mystical 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Uluwatu
This yoga course in Bali is the most spiritual of them all. The entire 200-hour training has a focus on transformation, for yourself and to learn as a skill to teach your students as you guide them through classes. You will find that the training is structured around beliefs of the ancient wisdom of the East as well as on the Shamanic Medicine Wheel of Peru.
This training is truly unique and is held in the most beautiful area of Bali, Uluwatu, so you will get to enjoy vistas of the vibrant blue ocean between classes. Community is a large part of this training too as the spiritual connection made here is something that will hold the group together for a long time. Aside from the basics and necessary yoga teacher training, you’ll get to participate in evening ceremonies that include Kirtan, cacao, mediation, and more.
16 Day 200-Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in Canggu
Don’t miss taking a peek at this training, it’s the one I personally recommend and is where I did my yoga teacher training! I may be slightly biased but I truly believe that Erin has done an incredible job of creating a well-balanced course that includes ancient teachings of yogic philosophy, practical anatomy knowledge, and hands-on teaching experience. This 200-hour YTT course goes above and beyond, leaving you ready to step away from your training and onto your teaching mat with skills such as theming, thought-out sequencing, and ready to help students with injuries or limitations.
This intensive training is all-in and will leave you walking away not only with new knowledge as a yoga teacher, but provides truly transformational experiences. Get ready to cry, learn more about yourself through included personal development workshops, and create an intense passion for all things yoga and movement.
