Seraya Shores

A boutique beachfront, Balinese-style retreat centre with mesmerizing ocean views, tropical gardens and an infinity pool.

Overview

Nestled on the shores of East Bali within its own private coastline bay, Seraya Shores is surrounded by natural beauty and tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The calm and serene environment and proximity to the ocean invites students to refresh their bodies and relax their minds, whilst being free from any external disturbances. 

This beautiful property is meticulously designed to embrace you into the enchanting bounty, beauty and bliss of Bali. Each spacious room features an A/C and a private sitting area, along with a terrace overlooking the sea. Enjoy.

Our daily practice takes place in a beautiful open-air yoga shala constructed with a Balinese-designed structure with stunning views of the ocean and a refreshing sea breeze. After practice, take a dip in the stunning infinity pool, or a stroll along the beach, which runs along the edge of the property. Enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets every day in this tropical oasis. 

Fresh and local vegetarian food is prepared by loving hands in the on-site kitchen. Breakfast, lunch, dinner snacks and tea are all included, and will follow the yogic diet.

Only a few minutes drive from the beautiful shores of Virgin Beach, Taman Ujung Water Palace and Karangasem Royal Palace; and, close to amazing surf, snorkelling and diving spots, Seraya Shores will allow you to experience authentic Bali.

The Plan

The course offers a balanced, quality curriculum designed to transfer knowledge of authentic yogic practices, and challenges you to tap into your intuitive logic by increasing your self-awareness while promoting stillness of mind (dharana), body (asana) and breath (pranayama). Balanced with a curriculum that teaches brand-building strategies designed to manifest success following your yoga teacher certification -- however you define success. This basic, yet immersive course is intended for yoga aspirants who want to elevate their yoga practice. Even though the course is tailored towards practitioners who want to teach yoga and who need appropriate training and certification, everyone is welcome. We combine traditional Indian teaching in the Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa lineage with immersion in a setting which promotes a yogic lifestyle. Vegan and vegetarian cuisines are sourced from local farms rich with fertile soils, so you experience nourishment of mind, body and soul during your training. Our adventures off the mat include awe-inspiring nature explorations. Bali is the perfect place to embrace it all! We care about connecting you to an authentic experience, so we’ve carefully crafted the most welcoming, safe and life transforming trip in this beautiful country and we simply can’t wait to share it with you!

WEEK 1

Upon being greeted at the airport by your driver, you'll be whisked off to the tropical paradise that is Seraya Shores. You'll kick off the yoga teacher training with a week filled with introductions — to your classmates, your teachers, the staff, the facility, as well as the course material, philosophy, anatomy and Hatha Yoga asana foundations. 

You will be welcomed into this lush tropical nature and a culture characterized by a deep spirituality with an Opening Ceremony fit for the god/goddess in you. Each evening enjoy delicious, healthy group dinners and begin building lifetime connections with other fellow seekers on the path of self-inquiry with you.

As the week unfolds, you will learn meditation practices, mantra chanting, cleansing practices, asana, pranayama. At the close of the week enjoy an optional cultural experiences such as excursions to a local water temple, water palace, postcard beaches, trekking, or water gardens. 

WEEK 2

Continue your studies of anatomy and physiology of yoga, philosophy, pscho-physiology of yoga and the Self. Each day begins with an herbal tea bar where you can create your own tea or, select from the prepared tea, followed by your daily cleansing practices. As you deepen your awareness of Self, you will continue to be greeted with daily energizing Hatha yoga classes followed by wholesome and hearty breakfasts. After a bit of theory, unwind with sumptuous healthy daily lunches. Then, settle in to methodology and lifestyle practices with examples how you can continue to bring yoga to life when you return home. End each day with Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, or Restorative, Yin and a meditation practice (which could be anything from Kirtan, japa meditation, yoga Nidra, silent sitting). Wind down with delicious dinner and inviting, stimulating conversations each evening. 

Enjoy a much lighter optional excursion at the close of this week, intended to ensure sufficient time to complete any homework or prepare for your final week — where you will take the reins and increase your teaching during asana classes. Spend your weekend on your own for lunch or join your classmates for some shopping and optional activities, such as waterfalls visits, local beaches, or temples.

WEEK 3

With your brief stay in paradise coming to a close, you begin harnessing the power of your authentic teaching voice by leading your own asana classes. You will receive gentle, constructive feedback from your classmates and teachers to assist you in evolving your teaching practice and sequences. Having all the tools and being fully knowledgeable and confident in your self and teaching practices of postures, breath practice, mantras, meditation and more. 

The training culminates in a special Closing Ceremony and a final tasty breakfast, where you'll say your goodbyes and depart for your next destination — whether that be somewhere else on this beautiful island or returning home.
