Cloud Nine Yoga Edu-vacation Retreats offer a variety of experiences and workshops that build into the 300 hr requirements. Depending on location and teachers, these courses provide approximately 12-14 hours of training per day. For example, in Bali we focus more on Meditation, Yin Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Mantra. In Hawaii, we stick to the above topics listed as modules, but condense them to fit into a 22-day program timeline. Some programs may be shorter and offer a 100-hr model. Contact founder and Director of Trainings, Erika Faith, for further info: 310-989-0878. * We supply room, board, excursions and often other additions. Costs for these trips vary and do not include transportation. Prices are vary based on occupancy, location, and duration of each trip.
