-Mantra (sacred sound recitation)
-Kirtan (blissful group chanting of sacred mantras)

What is Unique about S.H.Y
Aside from all the foundational knowledge of a YTT, the true gem of this training is its heart-centered, Bhakti approach (Bhakti – the unselfish love and service to others, and devotion to the Divine, Sacred source of All that is; call it by any name you wish). We practice opening our hearts to see that sacredness in ourselves, each other, and the world, through:
-Heart-Centered, humble, non-competitive and holistic yoga practice
-Community deepening sharing circles
-Traditional Opening and Closing Puja (Sacred Ritual)
-Daily Kirtan (group heart opening chanting)
-Karma Yoga (a day of 'Seva' selfless service with a local Balinese charity; 5% of Sacred Heart Yoga profits go directly to a local, Bali-based charity)
The light-hearted approach of beloved lead teachers, Greg Kaps & Amit Miglani, instantly creates an atmosphere of open-hearted ease, allowing students to relax into, and engage with the transformation process. With a compassionate understanding of life struggles, as well as an abundance of Yogic wisdom, experience, and a joyous, playful attitude, Greg meets students where they are, encouraging self acceptance while inspiring to explore deeper. This will not be an easy month, as leaning beyond our comfort zone rarely is, but you will feel deeply supported through the entire process by an experienced and compassionate faculty, and experience the life changing benefits of Yoga.

The studios are famously known for their tropical environment which cultivate an ‘in nature’ connection, an aspect and feeling that is celebrated and unique to the Yoga Barn experience. In addition to classes, The Yoga Barn hosts international teachers offering workshops, retreats and teacher trainings.
As an anchor for a global yoga community since 2007, when it humbly opened with one simple studio, The Yoga Barn’s expansion over the years into a ‘global yoga epicenter’ has been in direct response to ongoing teacher and visitor demands - fueled by the passion and positive intentions of all who participate. The Yoga Barn is an international hub that truly reflects of the power of healthy inter-personal relationships & community.
