Vishwa Yoga Journeys
Nature does not reveal all her secrets at once.
We imagine we are initiated in her mysteries:
We are, as yet, but hanging around her outer courts.

is it French?
is it Indian?
it is definitely Unique!
"Pondy" was once occupied by the French. This left an influence that mixed with Indian culture to create a unique charm that you cannot find anywhere else in India. However, the greatest influence in Pondicherry is the world famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram, which is threaded throughout the town; and also has links to a very special place about 20 minutes outside fo the town: Auroville...
Auroville is not just an international village.
At its center is the soul of a people with a spiritual vision.
And just as any wise individual does not lay her soul bare
to just any passers by,
Auroville does not reveal her heart to the casual tourist.
In fact, even our vishwa yogis will need to be educated on what Auroville is about before being allowed to enter the Matrimandir
Auroville is all about a vision for the future and Vision is the foremost quality of The Space Element.
Meditation Temple / Center of Auroville
Auroville is where the Vishwa Yoga Journey of India ends.

A flight can easily (and cheaply) be arranged from the Madras airport to the Island Paradise of Bali; taking your training and adventour experience to a whole new leve!
Obviously, India is an important place of pilgrimage for any sincere yogi, but...
Why Add Bali?
You may have heard that Bali is called the Island of the Gods, but did you know these are Hindu gods? In fact, Bali is a Hindu island / province within the primarily Muslim country of Indonesia. This is a rather bizarre anomaly in itself, as most Muslim countries are, well, Muslim. But there is something really special about Bali! Anyone who has been there will tell you this. It is not just hyperbole. To me, India seems to hold the ancient ruins of yoga, but Bali is a present day yoga oasis! No location can be more fitting to continue your elemental yoga training than Bali!
Furthermore, though Bali and India are both remarkable in their own distinct ways, Bali is far more comfortable and accommodating to travelers; and this is especially true after having completed a long trek across southern India! Thus, by the time you get to Bali, you are likely to feel like you just can't get enough of it. Therefore, we have created a few Awesome Options for you to stay longer!
It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves
- in finding themselves.

Don't want to stop?
Continue on to BALI, Indonesia for training in Elemental Yoga Therapy (RYT 300) and More!
Vishwa Ayurveda (RYT 300) The next logical and most profound step to take after the Vishwa Yoga Training in India is the Vishwa Ayurveda training in Bali. LEARN MORE HERE
Still Can't Stop?
After the Vishwa Ayurveda training there are still yet 2 more options for you to stay even longer!:
12 day Yoga & Spa Retreat ! You might be wondering why you would want a yoga retreat after already doing a month or two of yoga traveling and training. But besides having more time to see Bali during the retreat, it's also way different than being in training where we are on a tight schedule of intense learning immersion. Thus, the retreat can be like a long exhale after breathing in so much training; allowing it all to soak in before going back to the potentially discombobulating distractions of the "real world". Also, during this time you can get lots of massage because, concurrent with this retreat, we will also be having a ...
14 day Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner Training ! You might be wondering, why would I want to take a training in Thai Yoga Massage when this is already a part of the Vishwa Ayurveda Training you will have just finished in Bali. However, the TYM aspect of the yoga training, though deep on many levels, is very limited when it comes to developing a bigger vocabulary of massage maneuvers and perfecting them, as there just isn't enough time. However, if you stay for these additional 14 days of TYM training, your technique will have time to smooth out; you will learn more maneuvers and have time to refine them; as well as discover many greater ways to apply the vishwa ayurveda yoga training. Furthermore, you will receive a Level 4 "Adept" Practitioner Certificate. (By doing just the Vishwa Ayurveda training you receive only the Level 2 Certificate.)
Whichever you choose (Yoga & Spa Retreat -or- TYM Training) the cost is the same. Simply an additional $500 (which is less than half of what it cost for those coming for only the Bali Retreat or TYM Training). However, you will also need additional time in lodging, but this can be as low as $60 if you opt for the nearby Hostel, or $250 if you opt for the very nice options we have arranged. And, this is not per night, this is for the entire 12 to 14 days! (Furthermore, you could split the $250 cost with a roommate ;)
