Be brave, rip yourselves out of your routine, jump into the cold water, and study with Diamond Heart Yoga. It will be a chance to empty the cup and refill it with a new potion including new seeds of love, joy, peace, and wisdom.

This training is specifically designed to help curious and passionate students strengthen their practice and to safely teach yoga to others. You will learn the keys to a yogic lifestyle through the teachings of the yoga Sutras and how to embody and embrace this wisdom and share this with your students. Spend your breaks and time off at the nearby beach, which you wll find within walking distance. The academy is the only one of its kind in South Bali!

In these trainings and retreats I draw from a deep experience of extensive training over 20 years, from a masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tradtional Tibetan Buddhism and Yoga philosophy. With my many years of training in Chinese Medicine, Tai Chi and Yoga, comes a rich background in Anatomy and Functional Anatomy.

Over the years of taking classes, teaching classes & leading teacher trainings all over the world, I’ve noticed that the anatomy, functional anatomy & philosophy is a missing component in many trainings, and these components are key to further a teachers knowledge to be able to inspire their students to have a richer & transformative experience in class. Keeping all these core subjects in mind, our training is one of the only training in the world that largely focuses on Philosophy, Anatomy & Alignment - which in todays world is soo important for a teacher to have the confidence to teach that to others.

Scott Nanamura previously taught at Tahoe Yoga Shala (formerly Mountain Yoga) in South Lake Tahoe, California, and blends a unique style of Tibetan Heart Yoga, Hatha, Anusara, and Ashtanga into his teachings. Weaving in philosophy throughout a fun and energetic class. he is able to help students connect the philosophic wisdom with their asana practice, bringing wisdom and movement together, to show how they are beautifully connected, not separate, components.

His background includes a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture, herbology, nutrition, exercise therapy (Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong), and remedial therapy (massage, Tui Na). He has additionally completed Tibetan Buddhism courses and is continuing advanced courses at Diamond Mountain University.

Scott has worked to cultivate the unique ability to bring ancient teachings into a modern setting, to touch the human heart. He works to inspire students to practice with awareness and intention on the mat and to use the teachings off the mat in everyday life situations. His goal when teaching is to converge compassion and wisdom, art, and yoga.

Things to do (optional)

Uluwatu Temple

Uluwatu Temple or Pura Luhur Uluwatu, one of six key temples believed to be Bali’s spiritual pillars, is renowned for its magnificent location, perched on top of a steep cliff approximately 70 meters above sea level. This temple also shares the splendid sunset backdrops as that of Tanah Lot Temple, another important sea temple located in the island’s western shores.

Pura Luhur Uluwatu is definitely one of the top places on the island to go to for sunset delights, with direct views overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean and daily Kecak dance performances. Balinese architecture, traditionally-designed gateways, and ancient sculptures add to Uluwatu Temple’s appeal.

Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK)

Garuda Wisnu Kencana is the name of a cultural park on Bali's hilly southern coast famous for the ongoing construction of a gigantic statue of Vishnu riding on the back of a "Garuda" (a supernatural eagle-like being). The completed part of the statue is of the upper part of Vishnu’s body, the head of the "Garuda’ and Vishnu's hands.

The cultural park has become one of the favorite places in Bali for art and cultural performances, exhibitions, and conferences. GWK, once completed at 145 meters, will be one of the world’s tallest statues and erected on the top of the hill, with a magnificent panorama of Bali.

Kecak fire dance

The Kecak fire dance is one of Bali’s most iconic art performances, famous for its dominant use of human vocals in place of gamelan instruments to accompany the dance-drama at its core. Your visit to the island won't be complete without seeing a show, and the best place to do so is at the cliff-top amphitheater located just south of the Uluwatu Temple on Bali’s southern Bukit peninsula and at sunset for added drama.

Usually, the Kecak fire dance show is included as part of the package if you booked a common tour to the temple, and which perfectly serves as a closing highlight to your day out in Bali’s south peninsula area. However, you can go just for the show and purchase tickets at the amphitheater’s ticket booth up front. Tickets for walk-ins range between 70,000 IDR and 100,000 IDR depending on low and peak season and includes pamphlets containing the synopsis of the drama.

Padang Padang Beach

Padang Padang Beach, locally referred to as Pantai Labuan Sait, is one of Bali’s most famous surf spots, located on the north-western coast of the island’s Bukit Peninsula, and just a kilometer southwest of the Anantara Bali Uluwatu.

This beach features an exotic setting; a simply stunning one hundred meter-long stretch of sand that is accessible down a flight of stairs through a unique hollow rock entrance. The surf has a steady set of barrels during good weather, attracting wave riders from around the world.

Part of the group of world-class surf spots that line the coast of the southern peninsula, Padang Padang Beach lies several kilometers in between Bingin and Uluwatu, among which surfers usually hop to interchangeably for a different set of challenges and another thrill for the day. This beach is also a regular spot for international surfing events, the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang being the most frequent.

Suluban beach

Suluban Beach is one of Bali’s most unique coasts, concealed by natural limestone formations and accessed via steps and log ramps through narrow gaps in the rock. Canopied by a looming cliff face, this small beach may not be ideal for sunbathers but serves pro surfers well as a base to paddle out and ride adjacent reef breaks, including around Uluwatu, just to the south.

Nicknamed "Blue Point", Suluban Beach lies at the end of Jalan Mamo in the coastal area of Labuan Sait, the same locality shared by famous surf spots Padang Padang and Uluwatu. Unless you’re staying at any of the villas that have recently popped up here (the likes of Blue Point Bay Villas), getting here from popular areas such as Kuta and Jimbaran is best by hotel shuttle, taxi or motorbike

Balangan beach

Balangan Beach, locally referred to as Pantai Balangan, is one of Bali’s most popular and most scenic, featuring a gorgeous half-kilometer stretch of golden sand bordered between vegetated limestone cliffs and a reef with one of the longest left-hander breaks on the island.

This surfing paradise attracts wave riders from around the world, who enjoy most of the south-western Bukit coastline together with Balangan’s sister breaks of Dreamland, Impossibles, Padang Padang, Suluban and Uluwatu further south.

Balangan Beach shares the same vicinity as Dreamland, set only a kilometer apart and separated by a small headland that serves as the famous signature Hole 15 of the New Kuta Golf Course, from where players get the best bird’s eye-view over both beaches and the ocean horizon.

The coastline is accessible down the namesake Jalan Pantai Balangan, an approximate 7-kilometer (4.3-mile) ride west from the Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park, and 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) south from the main hub of Kuta. Preferably by taxi, or ask your hotel concierge for available shuttle services.

Pandawa beach

Pandawa Beach, locally referred to as ‘Pantai Pandawa’, is a great addition to Bali’s collection of gorgeous beaches, located on Bali’s southern Bukit Peninsula. The fine, one-kilometer coastal stretch is located in the village of Kutuh, only five kilometers west from the Samabe Bali Suites and Villas and eight kilometers south from the main hub of the BTDC complex in Nusa Dua.

"Hidden" behind largely carved limestone cliffs that reveal wide views to the Indian Ocean, Pandawa Beach was once also dubbed as ‘Secret Beach’ and it was officially opened in 2012, fast-gaining popularity among local weekenders and international visitors.

Dreamland Beach

Dreamland Beach is among the collection of "hidden" beaches of Bali: stretches of white sand secluded by limestone cliffs that line the rugged coastline of the southern Bukit Peninsula. The beach became highly accessible following the mega development of the Pecatu Graha and Pecatu Indah Resort projects that, at the turn of the millennium, transformed the 400Ha hilly terrain into the ‘New Kuta’, with Klapa beach club, resorts and the New Kuta Golf course onsite.

Despite rampant development over its limestone landscape, Dreamland Beach retains much of its rugged charm on the sand, particularly for beachgoers, day-trippers and surfers who enjoy some of Bali’s best reef breaks near the shore and close paddle outs to the neighboring world-class reef breaks, namely Balangan up north and Impossibles down south (both for advanced riders). On the sand, you can choose deck chairs and parasols for rent, or enjoy a cheap massage (50,000 IDR to 100,000 IDR or 3.50 to 7 USD). Hard bargaining is advised.

Bingin Beach

Bingin Beach is one of Bali’s most popular surf spots, and it’s also one of the island’s hidden beaches, obscured by the rugged limestone cliffs on the southwestern Bukit peninsula.

While getting to the stretch of white sand requires a difficult walk over uneven rocks, most people agree it is well worth the effort when they experience the gorgeous beachscapes and exciting waves. When you’re not surfing the sensational reef breaks, Bingin offers a treat for photographers or those simply looking for a place to relax and take in the exotic sunsets.

Overland, Bingin Beach offers a somewhat stark and barren topography, but you’ll have the best panoramic bird’s-eye view from the cliff-top. The best time for non-surfers and beach lovers to visit Bingin is during low tide when much of the stretch of sand is revealed. There are a number of local bars and warungs (traditional food shacks selling cold drinks and light meals) where you can sit back and enjoy splendid views over the coast, featuring scattered boulders and rock pools.

New Kuta Golf

The New Kuta Golf is one of the island’s premier golf courses, featuring a championship standard course and Indonesia’s first links style layout. The par 72 golf course offers enough variety to ensure a satisfying experience for all golfing skill levels. There are 18 holes, with its signature cliff-top hole 15 overlooking the gorgeous Balangan Beach.

The whole course covers a vast 85 hectares with turf consisting of seashore paspalum grass. The golf course is right next to the water park of the same name and is only a 20-minute transfer from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Tuban. Complete onsite facilities include the Link Restaurant serving western and Indonesian favorites, as well as a pro shop, a spa, and a number of meeting facilities.
