FLYING ELEPHANT YOGA MANTRA
May you practice courage and kindness
May you always trust your feelings
May you be the light in dark places, when all other lights go out
Now that you have included yoga into daily life, it is time to step to the teacher’s seat and share your love for this ancient practice. Module 2 is about refining your practice and teach it in a skillful, safe and inspiring class. Module 2 is open to those who completed Module 1, or those who are already 200hr certified teachers.
We believe in understanding and familiarizing self on physical, mental, emotional and societal levels so that we can be of benefit to the world around us. We believe that the real practice is off the mat in our family, friends, schools, work, traffic jams and good conversations over coffee, in other words, the real life. This is where our yoga practice counts, this is where we start our inspired living.
“COME TO YOUR YOGA MAT TO FEEL; NOT TO ACCOMPLISH. SHIFT YOUR FOCUS AND YOUR HEART WILL GROW.” ~ RACHEL BRATHEN
That’s why our program is divided into two parts: First half is to learn how to become a student of yoga, then the next half is to learn how to step up to the plate of a yoga teacher, to become a leader. We re-examine first what it means to be a conscious human, what it means to embody this practice in a way our body, mind and spirit is expressed and aligned with wholehearted living. The latter half uses the first half of our experiences as inspirations to share our love for this ancient practice, so as to become the instigator of human revolution.
Our training is NOT for EVERYONE. We consider self-inquiry as our top priority, transformation, inevitable, quest for happier, more peaceful and fulfilled life as joy.

We are currently offering our trainings in 2 locations: our home base, Flying Elephant Yoga studio in Pulau Weh, Sumatra or Yoga Dunia Lembongan studio.
You must be at least 18 years of age and has a regular practice of at least 6 months. If you have had an “on-and-off” practice for a few years, it is not a problem. We’ve all been there. The most important thing is that you’ve had an experience of a steady practice. We believe that no one walks into a yoga teacher training program by accident. If you thought about it and you felt it in your heart, you should trust that feeling. If you are still not sure, ask us questions! It is the best way to find out for yourself whether you are ready or not.
