About this trip

Lahari is a sanskrit word that can be translated to wave or tender. Tantra is a system that at its heart is about seeing everything in life as Divine. Through this training you will not only learn how to be a proficient yoga teacher, but you will also begin to embody these ancient teachings that will help you to ride the waves of your modern life with grace, ease and purpose. 

This is not your average YTT folks. We’ve found that most yoga teacher training’s teach very in depth course’s centered around pose’s and the body, and then water down everything else. It was disappointing to hear other people’s experiences and the lack of deeper knowledge around the 7 other limbs of yoga. We are not here to reduce, we are here to EXPAND! 

Don't get it twisted, we LOVE asana and find it extremely valuable to know how to execute and teach the posture's properly and with integrity, we also want to encourage the understanding that we fall in love with movement because it's the first step in mastering energy. Asana is the doorway to having a somatic experience that opens us up for even deeper insight and revelation. We will spend a good chunk of time on posture's AND also will spend extensive time exploring the subtle energetics of yoga and the value of being a great pranayama and meditation teacher as well. 

If you ONLY want to learn fancy arm balances and inversions, this is not your training my friend. If you want to learn that AND be tied to a living tradition that explore’s how to shape your energy, understand the tantric worldview and live a spiritual life knowing that you are held by the Divine Mother…than let’s party! 

Basically what we stand by is to know the basics, but don’t be basic ; )

Through our experience of studentship we’ve found the best way to learn is both online AND in person. Online gives you the flexibility to join in from anywhere, anytime and also allows you to watch and rewatch at our convenience. In person is also vital in order to truly embody these topics and when we practice together in a remote and serene environment it build’s community like no other and gives legacy to your experience. 

For that reason, this training will be half online (+- 100hrs) and half in person (+- 100hrs). The online part of this training begins Wednesday April 26th 2023 and the in person part of the training will be held 8th July until 20th July 2023. For 10 weeks we will meet live virtually on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s with Keli and Nikki as well as guest teacher’s! Then for 2 weeks we will be immersed in the mountains of Bali, in a retreat style format at a magical resort where all your meals will be provided and all you need to care about is your self study. Get ready to up-level your entire life my friend!

Meet Your Lead Trainer: Keli Dierings

Keli began practicing Yoga over 12 years ago while she was living in New Zealand, and it was on that side of the world in between New Zealand & Bali where she studied & worked with the biggest Yoga studios - sharing a passion about Traditional Tantric Hatha Yoga Teachings. These teachings have guided her soul & life to live more purposefully. 

Keli has over 1000 hours of study/training and over 6000 hours of teaching experience.

Nikki is a 500 Hour ERYT Registered Yoga and Meditation teacher who specializes in Tantric Hatha Yoga and Meditation. She has found a passion for Ayurveda and in a few weeks will officially be a certified Ayurvedic Wellness Coach through the Shakti School!

She began practicing yoga 20 years ago and used it as a way to connect more deeply to her mind, body and breath while she danced professionally in Los Angles. The last 6 years she has really deepened her practice and amplified her connection to spirituality through the ancient teachings and lineage based practices. Her time studying and teaching in Bali connected her to Keli, her dear friend and colleague that she really looks up to and admires, and is pumped to join forces and share traditional yoga in their own way to a group of devoted students on the same wavelength! 

Nikki combined her knowledge of yoga with her mastery of teaching group fitness, which has lead her to work with Oprah, Tony Robbins and Julianne Hough to help serve even more people and spread the importance of energetic wellness and loving yourself first! Catch her teaching on virtual platforms such as KINRGY, TONAL, FABLETICS FIT, FitON, Class Fit Sugar and Core by Hyperice.

Why Study Tantric Hatha Yoga ?

There are a lot of yoga teacher trainings out there, why should you pick ours? First off, there aren’t many teacher trainings ran by WOMEN that focus on Hatha Yoga and Tantra. We have found that signing up for a YTT is a huge investment, both of your money and time. So we believe if you are going to invest in something you should invest in a school that is part of a living lineage and is able to supply you with deep practices that will evolve your life on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Let’s break it down: 

Tantra is an ancient science of mastering one's own energy - to live a life more purposefully & joyfully. Tantra has a progressive & ancient map of practices designed to support us in remembering our Soul's eternal light. The Sanskrit word tantra can be translated to (tan) to expand or accelerate and (tra) to protect. It is a system that allows us to expand beyond our perceived limits while simultaneously being protected. 

It can also means to weave. To be able to intricately weave ancient teachings into your modern life is one of the main goals of tantra. It is also a worldview. Tantrika’s believe that everything in life is Divine, and the absence of the divine is merely a lack of clarity to see everything that is happening as waves of beauty and bliss. 

Tantra can also means to touch. To touch one’s heart in a way that makes you want to fall to you knees and cry out of pure love. When your soul is touched by the Divine it reminds you of who you truly are, and that is a big one when it comes to why we practice!

Hatha Yoga is one of the methodologies that supports Tantric Hatha Yoga. It is beyond a 'style' of Yoga, and it is more of a method which is filled with Yogic techniques that can guide us step by step back into our own hearts and begin to understand life's biggest questions! Pretty cool!

In Sanskrit Hatha can be broken down to (ha) which means sun and (tha) means moon, and when we say Hatha together it means to strike or force! Hatha is the yogic style we will use in this training to stoke our inner fire and melt our ego, so that the pair’s of opposites (sun and moon) can become one. 

And that leads us to Oneness. Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means union. The literal meaning is “to yoke”. The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root word “yuj”, which means to join, to integrate, or to harness. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra defines Yoga as Yogascittavrittinirodhah, which means: Complete mastery over the roaming tendencies of the mind is yoga. ~ From "The Secret of the Yoga Sutra. Samadhi Pada" by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD. 

But ultimately we are not studying the sutra’s we are studying ourselves! You are the main character of this training my friend, and a big part of self-study (svadhyaya) is through meditation. 


Meditation was never meant to be separate from the word YOGA. It actually baffles us that MOST YTT’s DON’T teach meditation or how to be a skillful mediation teacher. In this training you will learn how to teach a complete practice, meaning you will be able to skillfully program and guide classes that will include asana, pranayama and meditation. No need to take an additional mediation training to learn some of the most profound Kriya’s we have to offer our students on the path. 

Keep in mind that yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in! If you are ready to journey inward and devote your studies to a path that celebrates joy, health, power, sensuality, kindness and love, we welcome you with open arms to Lahari Yoga School. 

As practitioner's under the Himalayan Tradition and unbroken lineage of Sri Vidya, we stand by their ethos "Embrace all, exclude none."  We welcome all races, sexual preferences and religious beliefs without discrimination to our yoga school. It is our intention to offer scholarships on future training's and if you need a more extended payment plan than what is offered, you can reach out to us individually to work something out.
