300 HR Yoga Teacher Training - Sex, Death & WealtH
Welcome to our 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training on sex, death, and wealth, where we delve into the fascinating intersection of yoga, science, and culture.
This training is a 3 week immersion in Bali followed by online learning and teaching practice.
Embark on a transformative journey of exploration and understanding, shedding light on taboo topics that hold immense potential for growth, healing, and liberation.
Sexuality, a fundamental aspect of human nature, often carries layers of societal conditioning, shame, and confusion. Through carefully curated discussions, workshops, and practices, we will examine the role of sexuality in our lives, exploring how it can become a source of empowerment, self-expression, and connection. By understanding the nuances of our own sexuality and cultivating a compassionate understanding of others, we can tap into the transformative power of this vital aspect of our being.
Death, an inevitable part of life, often evokes fear, grief, and uncertainty. In this training, we will confront our own mortality and develop a deepened awareness and acceptance of the impermanence of life. Through philosophical reflections, contemplative practices, and rituals, we will explore death as a teacher, transforming our relationship with it and uncovering a profound appreciation for the present moment. By embracing the wisdom of impermanence, we can infuse our lives with greater meaning, purpose, and gratitude.
Wealth, often accompanied by complex emotions and societal conditioning, holds the potential for both abundance and limitation. Through introspective exercises, discussions, and practical tools, we will investigate our beliefs, attitudes, and relationship with wealth. By understanding the interconnectedness of material and spiritual abundance, we can cultivate a healthy and balanced approach to wealth, unlocking our full potential and aligning our actions with our deepest values.
Together we experience the powerful benefits of the following:
Daily yoga practice (asana, nidra, meditation, mantra)
Pranayama (breathing practices)
Self-inquiry / contemplation
Time for silence
Peaceful, beautiful environment

Satsang, Puja, Meditation
Soma has spent six decades exploring yoga and the spiritual path to awakening. Their journey began in 1972 when they attended their first yoga class at the age of 18. They embraced an alternative lifestyle, delving into the new age movement, sustainable living, and raising their three sons in teepees.
In 1992, Soma had a life-changing encounter with Papaji, a revered spiritual master. Guided by his wisdom, Soma experienced profound awakening and spent six years in Satsang with him. Witnessing sacred rituals and the cremation of an enlightened master deepened their understanding of the spiritual journey.
In 2008, Soma fulfilled a prophecy by leading a group to the sacred site of Arunachala in India. They dedicated themselves to spiritual knowledge under Pedanda Made Gunung, the head of the Hindu Religion in Indonesia, for eleven transformative years. Organizing ceremonies for 6,000 people during the passing of a high-level Pedanda in Bali further expanded their spiritual realization.
In 2000, inspired by Papaji, Soma founded Aum Rudraksha Designs to spread the significance of rudraksha beads globally. They believed that wearing these sacred beads could bring about global harmony. Today, Soma shares their wealth of experiences and knowledge to illuminate the path of freedom and devotion for others.

“Yoga is so much more than asanas – and this training offers an opportunity for exploring various aspects of yoga in a very supportive environment with inspiring, loving and wise teachers. Not only has it taken my practice to a new level, it has also allowed me to reconnect with a part of myself that I have neglected for years. It has been an amazing roller coaster ride and I would do it all over again.”
