Join Us In Bali!

January 2018


A Yoga Training for the Adventurous at Heart!


Join Devata Active and Melanie Cherney on the tranquil island of Bali where serenity is honored each step you take on your journey to self-discovery! Our foundational Yoga Teacher Training Program will help to enrich your yoga practice, expand your knowledge of yoga teachings and philosophy, and support you in discovering your unique voice and teaching style.

Our destination-based training program provides you with a dedicated opportunity to delve deeply into your yoga practice all while tuning in to the mindful flow of the Balinese culture! This format also offers the space for personal transformation and growth, both on and off your mat. Get ready to dig deep, learn a lot, experience a unique culture with adventurous new friends, work hard and have a lot of fun along the way! Your completion of our Yoga Alliance accredited 200-hour teacher training program gives you the valuable tools to transform your own life and deepen your personal yoga practice. You will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to share your passion and inspire transformation in others through the expression of yoga.


Our Yoga Alliance Approved 200HR Teacher Training Program is designed with you in mind! Our modular format allows you to work around busy schedules, while still finding room for personal growth and travel. Whether you are a lifelong yoga practitioner or learned your first Sanskrit word yesterday, if you are curious and enthused by yoga and adventure then our Yoga Alliance certified 200HR Teacher Training is perfect for you.

Unlike many other destination-based trainings, we don’t want you to be sitting inside a yoga studio the entire time while the enticing Balinese culture whirls around you. It is important that you are able to explore and experience the richness of Bali. Devata Active values experience-based learning. In addition to our studio time, we’ve also included several opportunities to dive into not-to-be-missed cultural experiences. From Tanah Lot temple to a traditional Balinese Dance in Ubud, we’ll have the opportunity to live out our yoga in a variety of settings.


Melanie Cherney is a passionate Yoga Instructor, fitness lover, outdoor enthusiast and the Founder of Devata Active. She leads Yoga Teacher Trainings and Retreats around the world, in addition to her weekly classes and local workshops. Although primarily a Vinyasa instructor, Melanie is trained in Restorative Yoga (Judith Lasater) and Yin Yoga (Asheville Yoga Center) and completed her 500hr Yoga Teacher Training through YogaWorks. She continues to be a student of the practice, finding teachers to learn from wherever she goes.


Our Teacher Training Program is set up in a modular format:

Module 1: Bali Teacher Training Retreat [January 20th – February 1st]

We will begin our Program with a 13-day immersive training in Bali. We’ll delve deeply into all things yoga, including a mixture of personal practice, philosophy, functional anatomy, teaching principles and experiential learning as the smell of banana leaves float through the air!…

Module 2: Distance-Based Learning Sessions [February 2nd – May 23th]

After our journey in Bali, we’ll stay connected through our distance learning online curriculum. This module will include home study such as reading assignments, online video trainings and live community calls to continue your studies. You will also develop a personal project and have yoga class attendance requirements, both as a student and to observe teachers in your local area.

Module 3: California Teacher Training Retreat [May 24th – May 27th]

Module 3 reunites us back together for a long 4-day weekend to complete our Program, continuing our studies and showing off everything you’ve learned during our training. We’ll join together at Kemper Campbell Ranch in the Mojave River Valley, the perfect setting to dedicate time to your practice and your burgeoning skills as a teacher and allow for a beautiful integration of the material we’ve covered to come together.
