One of the best things about being in Bali (apart from doing a Santosha training of course!) is the incredible variety of delicious and healthy food available. The options for eating are as plentiful as the beautiful beaches and ornate temples. One favourite among students and teachers alike is the famous Bali Bowls – yummy breakfast bowls of tropical goodies topped with fruit and coconut.
Many visitors have vowed to find a way to recreate this delight upon returning home, and one determined Santosha Level 1 graduate Amber Houbara has succeeded! Today she generously shares with us her recipe for Bali Smoothie Bowls. Take it away Amber!READ MORE
A great description of anxiety is that is a real physiological response to an imagined threat. Meaning the things we are anxious about are not necessarily happening or coming true – but we respond to them are as if they are happening right here, right now. So how can Yoga help?READ MORE

Although Yoga Nidra can be translated as “yogic sleep,” this practice is about more than having a good rest. You are guided through your body, identifying sensations and focusing on your breath while remaining in a state of relaxed awareness. This unique experience then enables you to release deeply held tensions, some of which you may not even be aware you had.READ MORE
Nusa Lembongan is a small island only 30 minutes by fastboat from Bali, home to some top dive and surf spots and loved for its chilled island vibe. It is also the latest destination for our Santosha Yoga Teacher Trainings! Yes, that’s right, we have a new island home. We are so excited to share our new favourite place in the sun with our Level 1 200 Hour and Level 2 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training students in 2017, and look forward to sharing a coconut on the beach with you all.READ MORE
One thing you will find as you embrace a yoga regular practice is that other changes soon start to appear in your life. You begin to become more conscious of everything that goes into both body and mind, including the thoughts you think, the emotions you take on – and the fuel you put into your body. It’s no wonder so many yogis embrace healthy, organic eating; we want to make sure that only the best goes into keeping this amazing vessel running! One yogi who has heartily embraced this change is Tiia, a Santosha Level 1 graduate who runs a raw food blog called Raw Food Getting Started. We are so lucky to have her share some of her favourite smoothie recipes for brain fog, beating sugar cravings and increased immunity with us on the blog… hope you enjoy 🙂READ MORE
Just like everyone comes to yoga through their own individual path, all our students approach teaching in their own unique way. Some continue practicing and learning before they make the leap to teaching, many start with family and friends and others find that they can’t wait to jump in to taking classes. Diaz was one such graduate who was born ready to begin his yoga teaching career! We chatted to him about his time on the Santosha Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training, and what inspired and empowered him to dive straight in to sharing his passion with others….
