Yoga is a gentle yet powerful practice to access the stillness within.

Shades of Yoga is an International Yoga Teacher Training school offering Level 1 (200 hour) RYT 200 and Level 2 (300 hour) RYT 300 Yoga Teacher Training courses accredited with Yoga Alliance International.

Our courses are held at beautiful locations around the world i.e. Ubud, Bali, and Costa Rica, Central America and give you an opportunity to deeply immerse yourself in yoga, while nourishing your soul in stunning natural environments. Shades of Yoga training takes yoga beyond the mat exploring all aspects of living a life of balance and harmony. Guest lecturers and teachers are often invited to share their wisdom with our students to further enhance their learning experience. On many of our courses, we incorporate a “Yoga of Food” and Detox element. This is led by knowledgable teachers that share with our students their wealth of knowledge and experience on how to incorporate yoga and ‘food’ philosophy into their daily lives. Occasionally we invite guest lecturers and experts in the fields of food and nutrition in to share their knowledge with our students.

Our Training Venues

Our trainings are held at two beautiful Locations:

The class spaces are unique as the natural settings of both venues create an inspirational experience for all levels of practice. Smaller classes allow for individual guidance in an array of traditional and mixed styles.

Taksu Spa – Bali

Situated in Ubud and surrounded by many of the things that bring people to Bali — scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces, jungle and rivers. It’s central location makes it easy to get from Ubud to the mountains, beaches, and major towns. (Use our partner site: Bali Celebrated to help you find accommodation, arrange transport and find the hot spots in Bali.)

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is dramatically different from our Bali venue as it is located in the Costa Rican jungle and provides our students with a quiet, secluded environment in which to deepen their yoga practice and immerse themselves in the art of learning how to teach yoga. Iguana Lodge is nestled in the jungle, a stones throw away from the beach that offers students an unforgettable experience that will nourish your body, mind and soul
