This Advanced 300-hour High Vibe Yoga Teacher Training consists of 3 modules over 28 days plus an additional 6 weeks of powerful pre-training online tasks.

During the training, you will be fully supported by the High Vibe team and an internationally-renowned guest faculty, while being surrounded by the unforgettable environment at The Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali.

Module 1: Sex (100 Hours)

“We might have the fastest and hottest smart phones, age-defying beauty treatments, or a plethora of pills to deal with the chaos of our modern lives. We might follow a most sincere religious or spiritual path, or we might take an atheistic or agnostic position in life. But in the midst of this busy world, we have lost touch with the gentle truth that is the unseen guide within us all. What we really need is something more potent and direct: love, intimacy, and sex.” ~Mark Whitwell 

This module is a deep dive into the Yoga of Sex — offering a fresh and surprising education on human sexuality through the lens of Yoga. Be prepared to examine your belief systems and cultural conditioning. This module is respectful and safe for everyone to join. There will be no nudity or sexually explicit conduct within the training.

  • Morning and evening  Hatha Yoga classes rich with practices for moving sexual energy including asana, pranayama (breath awareness), mudra (energy circuitry), bhakti (devotion), sangha (community), satsang (being with the truth) and bandha (unlocking power).  You will be able to apply these principles to any style or level of Yoga you wish to practice or teach, to make all Yoga individualized, effective, enjoyable, and safe. All bodies and backgrounds are welcome.
  • Gain a fresh, alternative and surprising re-education in sexual anatomy, sexual energy and sexual function.
  • Say goodbye to cultural taboos that block sexual expression and pleasure though group processes, revealing meditations and journal prompts. Feel way more like YOU as a result.

  • Gently work with and develop your voice using yogic practices that move sexual energy through the body via sound. Feel more like YOU while public speaking, teaching and sharing.

This module is a deep dive into the Yoga of Wealth — offering a spiritually informed education on wealth through the lens of Yoga. Be prepared to examine your belief systems and cultural conditioning.

Module 3: Death (100 Hours)

“Of all things in life, what is the most amazing? That a man, seeing others die all around him, never thinks that he will die.” ~Mahabharata

This module is a deep dive into the Yoga of Death — offering an honest, meditative and heartfelt exploration of death through the lens of Yoga. Be prepared to examine your belief systems and cultural conditioning.

Meditation is practicing death a little bit every day. In meditation we learn to take greater care of ourselves because we know our life is precious and fragile at the same time. According to the Indian sacred scriptures, being born in a human form is one of the greatest karmic boons, as it allows us to make life a ground for spiritual attainment. In what way are we allowing the experience of life to happen and in what way are we blocking it out? Where does the fear of letting go come from? What are we holding onto? These are some of the key questions that great beings have contemplated in their attempt to know the mystery of life and death. We will use the tools of meditation and inner contemplation to access deeper layers of ourselves and process some of the issues that defile our relationship with death. In meditation we learn to observe our mental patterning but also establish an intimate relationship with our Inner Heart, the Subtle Presence that makes us feel held and cherished from within. 

  • Experience morning and evening Yoga classes themed and rich with practices for death including asana, pranayama (breath awareness), mudra (energy circuitry), bhakti (devotion), sangha (community), satsang (being with the truth) and bandha (unlocking power). You will be able to apply these principles to any style or level of Yoga you wish to practice or teach, to make all Yoga individualized, effective, enjoyable, and safe. All bodies and backgrounds are welcome.
  • Unravel cultural taboos on death and impermanence — feel more alive as a result.
  • Dive into the teachings of death and how it relates to Yoga
  • Discover how two great truths are crucial in the process of living and dying: contemplating our divine nature and our own death.
  • Learn how establishing a relationship with your inner being can slowly eradicate the fear of death.
  • Explore the three mālās, the great illusions about ourselves. Such as the illusion of not being worthy – the illusion of feeling separate – the illusion of acting as the doer.
  • Explore the three stages of karma and how to work with karmic patterns.
  • Examine your Saṁskāras – latent predispositions, internal grooves and imprints that influence the way we think, move, act, breathe and eventually die.
  • Discover the four levels of detachment – learning to let go of the illusions of our life, also at the time of death.
  • Discover the healing benefits of Savasana 
  • Learn to guide talking circles for men and women on the subject of death.
  • Dive deep into the language of yoga; tone, clarity, direct vs. passive, personalizing themes and using your own life experiences as intelligent inspiration
  • Create and sequence classes and workshops that are themed on death while creating an environment that is welcoming and safe.
  • Practicums and Teaching Labs include professional and peer-to-peer feedback.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” -Steve Jobs

Praise

“Attending the High Vibe Yoga Teacher Training felt like spending a month at “life school” … in the best way possible. Emily lives her Yoga – her offering is rigorous and of the highest quality, but also playful and refreshingly authentic. In other words, it’s a lot of fun! I learned so much about all aspects of Yoga and, in the process, about myself. I now feel empowered and excited to apply what I have learned to my daily life, and share it with the world!” ~ Jane, New Zealand


“Yoga is so much more than asanas – and this training offers an opportunity for exploring various aspects of yoga in a very supportive environment with inspiring, loving and wise teachers. Not only has it taken my practice to a new level, it has also allowed me to reconnect with a part of myself that I have neglected for years. It has been an amazing roller coaster ride and I would do it all over again.”  ~Louisa, Denmark
