All balconies are facing the rice fields, with its own private outdoor garden. Dragonfly encourages conscious living - rooms are equipped with ceiling fan, there are no air conditioners in all bungalows - Ubud is slightly cooler at night.
Each bungalow has an attached mud-wall bathroom, passion fruits and vines climbing over the natural roof, semi-open to the nature, with clean finishing. Hot shower is available. All rooms are supplied with natural organic shampoo, soap, and insect repellent.
The beds and furniture are specially designed, made from recycled wood plough, which the farmers used with the buffaloes to plough the rice fields before. Twin beds and king-sized bed can be arranged in each room. Dragonfly believes in creating an organic environment for best rejuvenating sleep.
This yoga teacher training is a holistic program; to understand yoga, one must first understand their body, mind, and spirit. The four directions of the Native American medicine wheel will be used as a guide and foundational structure for the course. Within each direction, the course will focus on different types of movement, diet, and meditation. SYI brings to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons, a solid foundation in yogic philosophy, and a daily yoga practice.
Sadhana yoga is the yoga of spiritual practice. Derived from different yoga traditions, such as Ashtanga Vinyasa, Sivananda, and Iyengar, it is designed beyond form and tradition and aims to encompass the essence of yoga and spirituality as a practice of union.
SYI focuses on the roots of yoga tradition, where yoga is used as an instrument to reveal the truth of our existence as spiritual beings. School Yoga Institute honors all traditions of yoga and shares two foundational sequences at the 200-hour level.
These sequences are the Sadhana Vinyasa flow and Sadhana Hatha flow, based primarily on the Ashtanga and Sivananda sequences respectively, and together, these allow students to develop any style of class they feel called to share.

School Yoga Institute brings you to the island of the gods - the magical land of Bali - where palm trees and volcanoes line each sunset and sunrise, atop rice field plateaus, where lush green rice grass pierces stark blue sky, which reminds one of the unity in duality.
Dragonfly Village, an enchanted retreat paradise, is set in the midst of one of the most beautiful rice field walks in the center of Ubud, Bali. Tranquility and stunning greenery all around, panorama with sacred Mount Agung and the northern ranges of mountain in a distance, open space filled with dragonflies in the day and fireflies in the night, symphony of crickets and frogs - for those who enjoy being in the nature, healing, and learning. Only footsteps away from center Ubud, but tucked away from its hassles and bustles, Dragonfly Village offers the best of both worlds.
