The Samasti Yoga Philosophy
☯︎ DECONSTRUCT: Throughout our lives we are taught how we should behave, what we should wear, how we need to be to be loved. All of this moves us further from our natural state of being and can make us feel like we are watching a movie of our life, being simply an actor, pretending to be alive. The first step to knowing yourself is a deconstruction of all the falsehoods you have learnt throughout your life.
☯︎ RECONNECT: Once you start to remove all the falsities, and see the ways you are pretending in your life, you can start to reconnect more and more to who you truly are. You can begin to find out what your life is for, what is your purpose and what are your natural gifts and talents.
☯︎ BLOSSOM: From this place of connection, you are able to share with the world from a place of authenticity and joy. No longer looking for external recognition and validation, rather shining and sharing the fruits and flowers that have blossomed from your inner being.
“Yoga is a light which once lit will never dim, the better your practice the brighter your flame.”
Samasti Yoga Teacher Training
Samasti Yoga Transformational teacher training provides a unique opportunity to study and practice yoga in a setting that differentiates itself by offering not only yogic practices but also by providing the correct understanding, traditions, context and meaning of yogic science, asana and philosophy. We have a strong focus on combining the ancient knowledge of the East with the latest understandings and research coming out of the West.
Our team is made up of practitioners completely committed to our fields of expertise. By dedicating our lives to our self practice and development, we have gained the ability to aid others take their next step on their journey. The training is designed to have a completely interactive experience, giving our students the opportunity to not only study the “map” of yogic teachings, but also explore the “territory” internally through deep practices that will be closely facilitated. The course has been created in this way to ensure the graduates will be teaching from a place of true experiential wisdom, rather than borrowed knowledge from books.
Take the first step to Yogify your life!

Our lead yoga teachers are comprised of a highly educated, diverse team with many years of teaching experience. We also immerse our students in the vibrant local culture by guiding tours and excursions.
One of the best things about training with us at Samasti Yoga is the exposure to all aspects of the yogic lifestyle, as well as various yoga styles.
In our teachings we go beyond knowledge borrowed from books. We explore the deep meaning of the practice, focusing not only on the physicality of the practice, but also on it’s effect on the mind and spirit. For us Yoga is a science for creating inner union and inner wellbeing. While we focus mostly on the traditions of Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar yoga, Power yoga, Sivananda yoga, AcroYoga, Yin yoga, and Partner yoga classes.
We understand that peoples’ bodies are diferent and will benefit from different practices; some a more active vinyasa, while for others the slower, meditative Hatha style will be better for their mind and body. We want to prepare you to teach in the style which will best serve you in the future.
The freedom and openness of our program will allow you to experiment with asanas from different yoga traditions, choosing to follow whichever you please, or perhaps even creating your own style!
Bali is so well suited for Yoga and there is no other yoga school quite like Samasti Yoga!
