Set in the spiritually rich island of Bali, the Zazyoga intensive 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training course (YTTC) offers students an in-depth immersion into the art of yoga.
Our program builds upon the foundations of correct alignment for each unique body. We believe that to become an accomplished yogi and inspired teacher, one must develop a deep understanding of their own body, mind and soul. Once understanding how your own body moves, we guide you through the art of teaching, assisting and adjusting others.
Our focus is on Vinyasa and Restorative yoga, and we include workshops on the other main styles of yoga and advanced postures. This course emphasizes on the detailed alignments of each pose (along with their benefits, contraindications, modifications for different conditions, etc.) and on building your teaching skills with extensive teaching practice. By the end of the training, you will confidently teach a 90-minute class.
We set ourselves apart by providing an intimate training experience. Our course is limited to 16 students and takes place in handpicked private retreat locations. You will learn and grow in a quiet and nurturing environment, while remaining close to the main touristic attractions of Ubud.
A Yoga Teacher Training is not only for those who want to become yoga teachers. In fact, most students join YTTCs to deepen their practice, learn more about the aspects of yoga that are rarely covered in studio classes, develop a home practice, or simply take a journey into the self. A yoga teacher training is the opportunity to explore the many layers of yoga, discover yourself through yoga philosophy, meet and share with like-minded souls, and experience a life-changing course.
Your Zazyoga 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training is an extensive immersion into the various pillars of yoga. Throughout the course, you will not only learn to master your practice and teach a class, but will take a deep journey into yourself through the eyes of a yogi. Our curriculum balances practice and theory, uncovering some of the mysteries of the body, breath, mind, and soul.
Yoga is a journey through the self, far beyong the physical practice. For this reason, each morning starts with a mindful ritual of meditation and pranayama. We understand that sitting in stillness may be challenging for some, so we initiate you to various meditation techniques, including moving meditation, chanting, guided meditations, etc. to build tools to transcend and master the mind.
By learning pranayama (prana=lifeforce, yama=control) you will activate and regulate your vital energy. Most importantly, you will learn the ancient practices of pranayama and their effects on the physical, mental, and energetic bodies.
Our daily practice includes morning Vinyasa, a dynamic style of yoga that links breath to movement in a fast pace flow. During these classes, you will experience different themes, from soft flows to powerful “sweaty sessions” . You will learn to adapt to different audiences and better understand your own body and self practice, which will shape your unique teaching style.
Our afternoon practices alternate between workshops and restorative yoga. Restorative yoga is about slowing down and opening the body with supported poses to reach both physical and mental balance. During these practices, you will learn about the use of props as introduced by BKS Iyengar, about the resistance of the body and mind, stress management, and the benefits of deep passive stretching.
During asana labs, you will learn to break down and teach each posture including their main benefits, contraindications, and modifications for various bodies and conditions. Moreover, you will learn to safely adjust students, use the support of props, and offer various alternatives for different levels of practice.
Our interactive anatomy classes are far from boring! Indeed, through exercise and examples you will learn the major body systems and how they relate to yoga. By gaining a deep understanding of the human body, you will be equipped with the knowledge to prevent injuries and maximize the benefits of yoga in your own practice or in your classes. You will learn about the most common health conditions and injuries encountered by yoga teachers and how to work with them. You will get to know the incredible machine that is your body, and the many ways yoga impacts it.
By building a deeper understanding of Yoga Philosophy you will gain tools to uncover your truthful and authentic self, both on and off the mat. Adapting the ancient wisdom of yoga texts to our modern reality and how they relate to yoga in today’s world, you will study the eight-limb path of yoga and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and become familiar with the how to overcome obstacles to inner peace and living a blissful yogic life.
Whether it’s your dream to become a teacher of not, we believe in the importance of learning the skills to confidently express yourself to the world around you. We provide the groundings to better communicate from the inside out, whether that be in a yoga class or in your everyday interactions. We cover voice activation techniques, body language and movement, class preparation and sequencing, and many other techniques allowing you to find your own personal teaching style.
Building confident teachers that can clearly and authentically lead inspiring classes is one of our main focus. Throughout the training you will gradually build up your teaching practice to many styles of yoga, group sizes and yoga levels. You will learn to structure a class effectively from start to finish so you can easily build classes that flow smoothly and effortlessly.
You will learn to effectively nurture and preserve abundance through your yoga teaching career, understand different yoga business models, and explore the many paths you may chose to venture down upon leaving the training. We cover some of the most effective practices to start a successful career, such as building your own personal yoga brand, approaching yoga studios and starting up as a teacher, organizing yoga events, etc. You will be more than ready to market yourself as a passionate and successful practitioner in the area of your choice with the support and guidance from your skilled teachers.

Marylene is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT-200 RYT-500 yoga teacher who specializes in Yoga anatomy, therapeutic applications of yoga, Corporate Yoga and Yoga for depression, stress, and anxiety.
Her passion for yoga took a new turn when she helped a friend overcome depression through yoga. Curious about what other benefits a holistic approach to yoga could bring, she devoted her time and energy to study the 8 limbs of yoga. Splitting her life between a successful international corporate career and teaching yoga, she perfectly understood how everyday demands can get in a way of a healthy body and healthy mind, and used this experience to teach corporate yoga. In 2016, she decided to leave her corporate career to pursue a PhD in Osteopathy to deepen her knowledge of the physical body. She also completed her certifications as Reiki Master and Mindfulness coach.
Today, Marylene teaches private and group classes, and co-host Yoga Teacher Trainings in Bali, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. Using her own experience as a guide, she approaches yoga in a holistic way to help clients and students find peace of mind and regain self-confidence. Passionate of anatomy and yoga philosophy, she playfully combines elements of mindfulness, breath work, asanas, and physical therapy to help her students achieve their specific goals.
To date, Marylene has trained more than 150 yoga teachers from all over the world.
Ella’s passion for yoga started at an early age in New Zealand and Australia where she explored many different styles of yoga to compliment a busy working lifestyle. Her worldly curiosity and desire to learn led her on an exploration, travelling, volunteering, and living in Holistic communities around the world. Feeling the calling to India, and the time to deepen her yoga practice, she embarked on a 200h YTTC and ended up staying in India helping the running of Upaya Yoga School in Goa. Since then, Ella has been teaching all around the world, studying and practicing, and has now settled in Bali to run Yoga Teacher Trainings and Yoga Retreats.
Teaching yoga to all ages and various health conditions, Ella saw how yoga could provide healing and transformation to her students and naturally was drawn to the Therapeutic Trainings of Kaya Yoga Therapy where she completed and assisted in the 300h training.
Ella’s unique teaching style could be defined as mindfully connecting movement with breath whether it be a flowing vinyasa class or a gentle restorative session. She is passionate about meditation and finding different ways to calm the mind and connect to the present moment.
Ella is also a practicing Reiki Healer, helping to bring balance to the energy centers of the body.
When she’s not teaching or practicing yoga, Ella enjoys spending time on the beach with her dog and enjoying a coconut with friends – enjoying the beauty Bali has to offer.
Stephanie was initially drawn to yoga for its physical benefits – but it didn’t take long before she started noticing a positive effect on her mind and body as well. With each passing class, she felt her stress and tension melt away. Her mind became clearer and more stable. It was then that she realized that yoga was not just a sport, it was a lifestyle.
Having worked in the fashion industry for 10 years, Stephanie understood the struggle and stress inherent to the corporate grind – and having experienced the transformative benefits of yoga, she felt a profound desire to share them with others.
Her first stop was Rishikesh, India, where she completed a 500-hour teacher training program. During this training course, she discovered yoga therapy, and instantly knew that this was her calling.
She then acquired the necessary certifications to officially become a Yoga Therapist. She infuses her teaching with classic yogic philosophy, giving students the tools they need to practice on their own in a safe and well-informed way.
