Kalpana Radhika Yoga cordially invites yogis of all natures and expertise to come and rest a while in the vast green expanses of nature in Bali, Indonesia on this comprehensive 200 hour YTT.
The training curriculum allows sufficient support and asana sequencing and modifications requirements for specific levels and needs. The primary emphasis is upon inversion routines involved in Hatha and Ashtanga disciplines of yoga, covering numerous health and mindfulness benefits.

Radhika and Govinda worked together so well, complimenting in each other in their style of imparting and sharing whatever they knew.
I also want to highlight the kirtans and mantras we chanted along the course with Radhika – who’s voice is angelic and still resonates in my head.
I have already been a practicing teacher and coming back to India all my students also tell me that my style and attitude towards teaching is much stronger.
