Don’t Just Take Our Word For It


Posture Clinic

Starts Trainees in speaking the 105F Dialogue, in how to guide others through the set-up, action, and exit of each of the 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Interspersed feedback will identify effective usage of language and cues. We start slow and simple, isolating one pose at a time. Posture Clinics gradually progress into sequences of multiple posture presentations. Skill objectives include a competent understanding of posture language and mechanics, confidence in public speaking and teaching, and constructive giving and receiving of feedback.

Logically extends the Posture Clinic into preparations for teaching an entire live class. Trainee will start by introducing one posture at a time and then string postures together by groups (balancing series and spine-strengthening series) to calibrate verbal speed, pose spacing, and class timing. Skill objectives include proper voice projection, real-time corrections, non-reactive teaching techniques, and efficient language.

Delves into the fundamental principles and methods to help achieve maximum results with students. Skill objectives include posture and series continuity, dialogue dissection, mapping your class, feedback philosophy, and didactic responsibilities.

Trainees will identify particular scenarios for addressing individual student potentials and limitations, moving through the room while teaching, prepping students before class, debriefing students after class, and using psychology, humor, and stories to convey points.

This section complements the Trainees’ visual and practical understanding of the human body. A series of lectures will illuminate the significance of articulating anatomy, axial anatomy, and the nervous system in helping understand how the muscles, bones, and joints create the postures, how spinal position affords muscular continuity throughout the series, and how information flows throughout the body.

You will receive an intro into Ayurveda, the science of life, which is a natural system of medicine that originated in India over 5,000 years ago.  Learn tips and tools for how to bring balance to your body, mind, and spirit to reduce stress, increase energy flow, and boost your body’s natural defense systems. 

We will survey overarching theories underpinning yoga and the constant responsibilities of yoga teachers. Yoga Nidra philosophy and meditation techniques are showcased with a supporting review of Raja Yoga, the Signs of Samadhi, and Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Take a look into the yoga business opportunities available to a certified yoga teacher. The teacher will cover the basics of employment, management considerations, and studio ownership concerns and will be presented with success/fail comparisons and an eye toward win-win scenarios.

Kathy’s interest in yoga began as a personal mission to heal her daily battle with anxiety and depression without using medication. She was invited to a Bikram Yoga class in 2004 where she embarked on a life long journey to wellness.  

From the first breath, she found security, freedom, relief, and support. Bikram Yoga Teacher Training soon followed in the Spring of 2005. This channeled a new radiant being to emerge and blossom in the years to come. She walked out more confident, more energetic, more alive and more true to herself.

FAQ for Teacher Training

Which certifications will I receive upon graduating from 105F's 26+2 Hot Yoga Teacher Training?

Our training is Original Hot Yoga Association (OHYA) and Yoga Alliance (YA) approved.  You will graduate from training with your 105F certification, your OHYA certification (intern status), and your RYT200 (if you are already RYT200 certified then you will receive your RYT300).

Which airport should I fly in and out of?

You will fly in and out of Ngurah Rai / Denpasar International Airport (DPS). 

What are the required travel documents for Bali?

PASSPORT - Please check to make sure that your passport is valid for a minimum of 6 months after our Bali travel dates. 

TOURIST VISA - You will be responsible for purchasing your own tourist visa online in advance of the trip (click HERE to purchase online and choose the "Tourist Single Entry Visitor Visa - 60 Days" option).  The cost of the VOA is 1.500.000 Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) or approximately $90 USD and allows visitors to stay in Indonesia for 60 days.  Important to note if purchasing online – your Visa must be used within 90 days of the date of issue so please be sure to wait until we are within this timeframe before applying and purchasing it.  Tourist visas are generally granted fairly quickly within 5 business days after applying online.

Are any special shots or vaccinations required to enter Bali?

Traveling from the US, you are not required to have any special vaccinations to enter Indonesia.  That said, especially when traveling abroad, routine vaccinations (i.e. measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine) and your yearly flu shot and COVID shots should be up to date.  HERE is some additional health information from the CDC on the topic that you may find helpful.  

When should I arrive in Bali? How do I get to Jeda Yoga Center?

Jeda is a 3 hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS).  Because of the lengthy flight and the significant time zone change we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you arrive in Bali a couple days prior to when Teacher Training starts on April 1st to get settled and acclimated.  IMPORTANT NOTE - March 29th is Nyepi which is a National Balinese Holiday where the entire island, including tourists, must take a day of rest and silence (no flights arrive/depart on this day).  Transportation will be provided to Jeda from two different pickup points (one in Seminyak in South Bali and one in Ubud in Central Bali) on the morning of April 1st. Please discuss arrival and departure logistics with Kiley before booking your flights.  

How does tuition work?

25% is due at the time of booking. Full payment is due 60 days before training starts. Most trainees make 4 payments of 25% but if a more flexible payment schedule is needed, we are more than happy to work with you on that. 

Will you provide a copy of the dialogue?

The 105F dialogue (Cues & Commands) is very similar to the original dialogue created for the 26+2 series -- just cleaner, crisper, more clear, more efficient, more effective. One of our main goals is to make sure you are set up for success to teach at any hot yoga studio you’d like after training -- learning the 105F Cues and Commands will give you the foundation to do just that. Once you officially register for training and pay your initial deposit, we will send you a hard copy of the Cues & Commands.

How do I prepare for my 4-week training?

Three biggies!  Study, practice, and hydrate. Verbatim memorization of half moon through eagle pose is mandatory by the time you arrive at training. You will be required to memorize the full dialogue during your training so the more you know before you arrive, the better! Start to practice daily doubles at least two weeks before training starts.  Hydrate well in advance of training and be sure to bring any electrolytes or rehydration supplements that work for you to training.

What is your average training size?

Our average training size is generally around 16.  It’s a big enough group so all of our trainees are sharing information and learning from one another (each trainee is unique and brings something special to our gathering!) yet small enough where our trainers are able to give as much individualized attention to each of our trainees as is needed. 

What are the recommended readings?

It’s never a bad time to start building your yoga library! 

Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff, Hatha Yoga by David Coulter, Revealing the Secret, a Commentary on the Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Swami Kripalu, Energetic Anatomy of a Yogi by Paul and Jaylee Balch, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Sri Swami Satchidananda, Anatomy Trains by Tom Meyers, Yoga Body by Mark Singleton, Ayurveda and Panchakarma - The Science of Healing and Rejuvenation by Sunil 'V. Joshi, M.D. (Ayu). 

These are RECOMMENDED readings -- you are NOT required to read all of these books before or during training.

What should I bring to training?

Passport (please check the expiration date on your passport as it must be valid at least 6 months beyond your period of stay), tourist visa confirmation, Cues & Commands, journal/notebook, an offering for our altar (any small item or token that has special significance or meaning to you), pens/markers, water bottle, hot yoga wear, comfy clothes for lectures/posture clinics, closed toe/comfortable shoes for hiking, swimsuit, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, toiletries (shampoo and body wash is provided in the rooms), electrolytes, vitamins/medications, layered comfortable clothing (nights will get cool), an adapter/convertor for your electronics, bug spray.

Will yoga mats and towels be provided?

Yes, Jeda will provide yoga mats, yoga towels, and any props we need for training so you do not need to pack these items with your belongings.

Can I do laundry at Jeda?

You will have access to inexpensive laundry service daily with a quick turnaround time. 

Will massages or healing services be available?

Traditional Balinese massage will be available during your training (extra fee).
