YACEP Courses

This was a transformative journey that gave me new life skills that I will continue to use and strengthen through practices that were taught at Samyama.

YACEP Courses


Our Courses offer something for everyone from absolute beginners, to seasoned practitioners, teachers, healers and guides. 

Receive comprehensive teachings from core concepts that have transformed our lives. Our emphasis on experiential learning is amplified with inspiring yoga philosophy and a synthesis of eastern wisdom and western science. We want to ensure that you go home with more tools for your kit as you continue to practice, integrate and share.  Explore education that is both enriching and enjoyable at Samyama.

Each course offers 50 hours of Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits (YACEP), required for certified yoga instructors. However, you do not need to be certified to enjoy the benefits of a Samyama course. 

    “I am very impressed with how well they have balanced all the elements of the training. There was time and space for theory, practice as well as deep self-inquiry and fun.”

      Essential Banner

      Welcome to our 6-Day Intensive Ayurveda Course at Samyama. Our introductory course provides a comprehensive overview of Ayurveda’s foundational principles as an ancient healing system, intimately tied to Yoga.

      Teaching yoga is so much more than simply applying knowledge. It requires dedication to a personal practice in order to embody that knowledge. It asks us to stay up-to-date with new discoveries about the body, mind and culture.

        About Samyama

        A peaceful sanctuary for exploring holistic, authentic, and grounded approaches to healing and spirituality. Indulge in delectable meals at our vegan restaurant and experience rejuvenation at our healing center equipped with a steam sauna, ice baths, and a roster of diverse healers. Our meditation and yoga halls are dedicated spaces for non-dogmatic teachings from wisdom traditions passed down from teacher to student. Honoring yoga’s ultimate goal of spiritual liberation, we also celebrate the profound physical, mental, and emotional healing that unfolds along the path.

        Our location

        Ubud, Bali has emerged as a premier destination for yoga and spirituality. The very name, Ubud, translates to ‘medicine,’ highlighting its historical significance as a sacred hub for healing and purification. The pervasive, nurturing energy here often feels like a comforting embrace.

        Samyama is situated to the south of central Ubud, within the community of Kumbuh, Mas. Tucked away from the main thoroughfares, we rest along a tranquil road, providing a peaceful retreat just a 10-15 minute drive from the town center (subject to traffic conditions). Our location, nestled amid picturesque jungle and rice fields, offers the best of both worlds: proximity to town life and a serene escape from the hustle and bustle, a quality our guests particularly appreciate.
