Best place to combine surfing & Yoga Teacher Training

Best place to combine surfing & Yoga Teacher Training

When I started this journey I didn't know if I would like to be a yoga teacher. Now it is the 3rd week of the Yoga Teacher Training and after learning all about the essentials of the yogic lifestyle and Asana, I am already more than prepared to go out there, teach and share the love for yoga. Santosha is doing an amazing job, the teachers are all such beautiful souls and the shala is in the best location ever on this precious little island. I also had the change to squeeze in a surf every now and then, so if you are looking for a YTT that also offers some surf opportunity, this is definitely THE place to be. Love it and can't wait for the 4th week to start!

yoga & life learnings
Feb 2020 • Solo
Wow wow wow!! I thought I knew what to expect before coming to Santosha for YTT level 1. I knew lembongan and thought I knew a lot about yoga... turns out there is so much I didn’t know, about yoga and myself! This is so much more than yoga! It’s the making of a family, or finding self love and opening the doors to a lifetime of yoga and happiness.

The teachers are incredible! Each one of them brings a unique style of teaching and so much knowledge, they are beyond inspiring. This will push you to really delve deep into your self and teach you how to teach yoga... what more could you want! A few people have been disappointed with the amount of actual asana happening, thinking this was going to be a retreat that they would come back from extra bendy and stretchy... it’s so much more than that. It’s the foundation for you to discover your practice and perfect it, giving you the tools to be your own teacher (and 2 hours of asana a day... my muscles are definitely working hard!)

I feel eternally grateful to Santosha, each one of the teachers and staff and the beautiful island of lembongan for this life changing experience!

Highly recommend!! (And bring mozzie spray and more yoga shorts than pants) 💖💖💖

LIFE CHANGING!
Feb 2020 • Solo
The training commenced with a beautiful message reassuring us that we are perfect as we are in this moment. Right from the start my fears coming into this experience were put at ease. I wish it hadn’t taken me 32 years to make some of the réalisations that have occurred during this journey. The teachers are divine, the shala has the most amazing energy and the content is very appropriate. I’ve made new friends for life and can honestly say that every single person has made me feel loved, valued and respected. The locals are friendly and helpful and the food below the Shala at Ginger and Jamu is delicious.
My eyes have been opened to something greater than I could have ever dreamed of & I can’t wait to go out into the world with my new found approach to this wonderful life... thank you Santosha. You truly lived up to your name!!

Beautiful space!

Did Santosha’s YTT, while my partner joined several of their drop in classes (daily 8:15 and 17:30 / 100.000IDR- status Feb20). We both experienced yoga in it’s purest form - safe, enjoyable and very mindful. All teachers are very experienced, which obviously enhances the experience. The YTT was very intense - especially on an emotional level. Santosha Yoga Institute emphasizes that their students understand themselves on a deeper level. I recommend this experience to anyone who has a open heart and spirit and would like to not only deepen their practice, but also give something back to their body and mind.

I never expected a yoga teacher training to be like that. Here you’ll get the whole picture of yoga! This is more than just background, asanas and learning how to teach. And by the way it’s right next to the ocean.

SO MUCH LOVE
Jul 2019
I couldn't be happier to have chosen started my Yoga journey with Santosha. I have just finished my YTT 200hrs in August 2019 and it was a life change. Not only in my self practice, but know I understand what is the REAL meaning of Yoga. Yoga is life and it is in everywhere. They teach you from the base, and it is beautiful because it was my first course and now I feel like I have the stronger base to do whatever I want to. I was also so lucky with my class, we understand and love each other, so many power woman together, and I wish that everyone who goes could have the same new yoga family that I have now.
The school is in a beautiful shala up that you listen to the waves and smells it as we are just in front of the breach. They have also a healthy caffee down.
About the course itself: They give you so much knowledge with the philosophy clases, anatomy and all the skills to become a tracher. That it just blow my mind in the most beautiful way. And a funny thing is that I was not expecting to teach yoga after the training, I came just for myself. But now I feel like I have so much wisdom that I need to share with society, share with my friends and family, and make the world a better place. Full of love and kindness. The teachers are like angels in heaven, each of them have its own magic! A the school itself. I thing that MAGIC is the perfect word to describe my experience. THANK YOU SANTOSHA! I LOVE YOU!

Santosha lives up to its name!
Jun 2019 • Solo
Santosha was a beautiful place and I feel lucky to have begun my yoga teacher career as a student of this school. The curriculum focuses on safety, yoga as therapy and the basics which can be applied to anybody and any body. Expect a slower yet thorough pace where you can really understand and grasp these critical concepts. The teachers want to see you succeed and make themselves available for whatever you need; both yoga related and not. Nusa Lembongan is a cozy place to stay for a month and you'll definitely enjoy the beach-front setting!

INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE, would recommend to anyone
Jul 2019 • Solo
My time in the level 1 YTT at Santosha was nothing short of incredible. The island lifestyle combined with the beautiful concepts and philosophies we were learning from the just-as-beautiful teachers was magical. The teachers really care about you and your spiritual journey and go above and beyond to make your time there enjoyable and meaningful. They're all inspiring in their own way. My favourite part was the philosophy week but all of the segments tied together to make me feel fully confident to come back to Australia and teach yoga. I've been back for 3 days and have already organised 2 different classes of 8 of my friends. Super exciting to see where this takes me. The island itself is beautiful and quaint. Plenty of delicious food, both cheap and a little pricier if you don't want to eat local all the time. The yoga shala is overlooking the beach so you're in nature the entire time. Prepare yourself to sit down on the ground for a month though, and although they give you plenty of cushions to sit on my legs and back got a little sore by the end. Overall, the girls i did the course with, the teachers, the learnings and the whole lifestyle was a month I'll remember forever.

Life changing experience with Santosha Yoga
Jul 2019 • Solo
I can't thank Sunny and the team enough for EVERYTHING! The whole experience was truly life changing, inspiring and beautiful. All the teachers and the environment they have created is such a joy to be a part of. And for me, it felt like it was exactly where I needed to be and exactly what I needed to learn to begin this journey. I now really do feel so prepared and inspired to teach yoga and will make sure I do everything it takes to make it happen and keep practising this way of living.

What was truly special for me was how much they cared about each person's experience. They even moved the graduation ceremony earlier so my friend and I wouldn't miss it as we had to catch out flight early the next morning! The graduation ceremony itself was so special and was the perfect cherry on top of a life journey. I am forever thank you to have those beautiful memories.

A special shout out to Sebastion who took the philosophy classes! Absolutely incredible. Never learnt so much in the space of a week!
