Earth + Sky Teacher Training

Earth + Sky Teacher Training


Join Janet Stone as she returns to her second home — Bali — for a training immersion like no other. We’ll immerse in daily sadhana (practice) to reconnect with our internal rhythm and inner knowing.

The stunning Bagus Jati Resort will be our home base, from which we will explore some of Bali’s cultural, spiritual and geographic landmarks.

Bali is the perfect place to explore the rich earth and vast sky as we find tangible connections to what grounds us in the heart of the practice. This immersion is for teachers, non-teachers, and all other humans who want to embody yoga as a place between and within the fluctuations. We’ll begin with the foundation of our own practice that will emanate to those around us in class settings, work environments, home, love, children and so on. Then opening to the limitless sky comes with widening of our aperture/view point until these teachings become an offering to all beings.

We’ll meet in the middle of the rice fields at the luxurious Bagus Jati for ten days and nights, near Ubud, Bali, in the heart of the island. Setting our feet at the base of an active volcano, we can feel the power of the earth. As we hike to the top of the volcano at sunrise, we’ll reach for the limitless space all around.

We’ll explore:

  • Daily Ritual – Traditional HATHA , modern vinyasa yoga, a little dabble in the Balinese tradition
  • Foundation, form, and precision in your own body/practice
  • Pranayama for grounding and expanding
  • Daily Meditation
  • Asana Lab – taking the postures and studying both gross body and subtle body aspects
  • Sequencing for balanced living
  • Dharma in living
  • Ayurvedic practices
  • Thai Massage/Fascia release/finding ways out of stuck patterns
  • Hands-on Assisting
  • Working along and with others to go deeper with truthfulness
  • Bhakti/Devotion/Chanting

Janet’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.

When will the training begin and end?

The training will begin with dinner on April 3 and end with breakfast brunch on April 13.

What is the deposit and is it refundable?

The deposit is $1008, and it is non-refundable and non-transferable. Read our cancellation policy.

If there are exceptional circumstances, such as ongoing covid-related restrictions, we will adapt this policy accordingly.

I saw Janet is also offering a retreat in Bali. Which one is a better fit for me?

If you are are looking for a teacher training and a deep immersion in practice, the training will be a great fit. The immersion is intensive, with daily morning practice, followed by training material until dinner time (with generous breaks for breakfast and lunch). The training will include dharma/philosophy sessions, anatomy + ayurveda, asana lab + assisting practice, and more). The immersive nature of the training tends to cultivate pretty deep bonds, as you are together for so many hours. The immersion includes group excursions that everyone does together, plus all the training time.

If you are seeking an opportunity to unwind, chill and explore Bali, then the Bali Bliss retreat at Soulshine may be more your speed. There will be 1-2 practices per day and loads of free time, for exploring, optional excursions, and just relaxing.

Which airport should I fly into?

Bali’s airport is in Denpasar. It is about 1.5 hours from Bagus Jati.

Which airline should I fly?

This will depend on your city of departure.

Based upon our learnings from covid-related cancellations in 2020 and 2021, we highly highly recommend booking directly with the airlines, and choosing an airline that is offering refunds or flexible changes.

How long is the flight and when should I arrive/depart?

The length of the flight will depend on your departure city, of course. From the US, it takes about one day of travel. Most flights go through either Taipei or Singapore. Plan your flights so you arrive no later than 3 pm on Sunday, April 3. You can depart on April 13—flights that depart after 3 pm are ideal. We highly recommend booking flights directly through the airlines. China Airlines and Singapore Airlines are among our most recommended options.

How do I get from the airport to the training space and form the training to the airport?

Bagus Jati coordinates transportation to and from the airport, as well as to and from Ubud. Airport shuttles are 450,000 Rupiah (about $30 USD), and can be shared by up to 3 people. The transfer fees are not included, because many students choose to travel on their own before or after the training.

Do I need a visa?

Typically, you can get a Visa on Arrival (VOA) at the airport in Denpasar, as long as you plan to stay fewer than 30 days. Be sure your passport is current and does not expire within six months of your planned departure. This may be different in 2022, depending upon entry requirements due to efforts to test and track coronavirus. We will provide guidance on the process if it an advance visa is required.

How do I exchange my money?

Currency exchange services are very easy to find in Bali. In addition, ATMs are widespread, and most credit and debit cards work in Bali. Check with your bank because many cards offer currency exchange withdrawals without a fee.

Is there laundry on-site?

They do not have machines, but they can send laundry out and it will come back clean in 1-2 days for a modest fee.

Just to be sure, what's included in the training fees?

Lodging and all meals during the training starting with dinner on April 3 and ending with brunch on April 13. Access to the pool. Fruit and bottled water daily, plus access to refills. Excursions.

What's not included?

Airfare to and from your home to Bali. Tips for the retreat center staff (around $10USD/day, to be shared with the many individuals who make their living supporting our trip; please bring CASH). Airport transfers in Bali. Incidentals (snacks, laundry service), and spa treatment (the spa is incredible).
