Seamless hillsides sculpted with rice paddies, towering rainforest canopies and the unique, intricately styled architecture of the island are a constant source of wonder. With so much to explore, you will quickly fall in love with this mystical island and its seemingly limitless offerings.

The Teacher Training with Meghan definitely was one of the greatest miracles happening in my life. Every single step unfolded magically and I can’t put into words the depth of how my whole being was touched and transformed through this experience. What striked me most is the kindness and love with which Meghan and all her assistants treated every student and also family members. — Xoxo KatharinaKatharina Heyner
Meghan Curries Teacher training was not my first teacher training and likely not to be the last. Teacher training immersions within themselves are such absolutely amazing transformative experiences. Where you are given the opportunity to as Meghan likes to say INDULGE in your own experience. They are a gift, and an opportunity to meet so many other amazing people who are on the same path.
Now lets talk about Meghan Curries teacher training ! It was EXQuisitely metamorphisiscaly delighlighfull. How could it not be, Meghan is undoubtedly amazing with a depth of knowledge that can only come from a prolonged whole hearted immersion in growth and yoga. You can not tell where she begins and yoga ends. Practicing with her daily helped me to tap into an inner strength that I hadn’t tapped into before and it felt great! One of my favourite things about her style of teaching is the cueing, that brings both a strength and ease to the practice. I felt really lucky to be given privy to the unfolding of both her process of cueing and developing a class. Each of her classes an intentional well crafted work of art. The crew of beautiful people she has assembled around her for the training are exceptional! The training is run seamlessly.
You’re ah spicy-a meeeeat-ah-balla!Jamie Kidd
Becoming a yoga teacher with Meghan Currie, in Bali of all places, was the only way l wanted to do it. If you love Meghan, which l am sure you do because you’re interested in attending her training, then JUST GO FOR IT! It changed me immensely. I haven’t completed other trainings, so l have no comparison but the flow, the intensity, the workload, days off, staff, everything seems to have a point, a energetically planned outcome by Meghan, like she really has a meaning for every step of the training. I knew l was changing, metamorphosising, everyday, and it was done with such grace, beauty and love that l didn’t feel the pain. I am so glad, and honored to have this knowledge and to have shared so much precious time with sweet Meghan 🙂Cory Anne Cochiolo MA, CHt
Meghan Currie’s teacher training last Nov-Dec was the best thing that I ever did for me. However, it doesn’t stop there. It spills over to the people that are close to you and ultimately the people that you will teach. Not only is it a yoga teacher training like no other, but it also makes you a better version of you. You will be transformed over the 28 days like you never dreamed possible. You will also make connections to like minded from all over the world.
The training is intense, but doable. The days and nights are long, but you wake up in a magical, ocean front, jungle setting, feeling refreshed & wanting more. Meghan takes you on an incredibly deep yoga journey. This ultimately leads you to the unfolding of the many layers of your own soul. I would do it again in a second.Tom Guzek
My Meghan Currie 200 hr yoga teacher training was a life changing beautiful experience. I learnt and grew so much in one month and this path of growing and learning has continued on as a lasting after effect of the training.
Meghan creates this beautiful space for you to fully explore yoga and Bali is a transformative healing place to do exactly so. The training is a beautiful harmony of philosophy, anatomy, in depth learning of asana, the process of creation of yoga classes, self work and learning to share through teaching.
Meghan’s lessons are deep and profound. Every little wisdom she shares is a little life lesson. She also invites other incredible teachers to each share their wisdom with you.
Throughout the whole process, I found individuality to be encouraged. You get given all the tools to understand the foundations of yoga and teaching however this training certainly goes beyond that, offering you space to explore what it is you uniquely have to share with your teaching.
My journey of life hasn’t been the same since. I get to share my love for yoga with others now and have found a deeper connection to myself and life. My whole teacher training experience with Meghan felt a little bit like magic.Sarah Hessey
For me, the teacher training with Meghan was one of the best decisions and experiences I made in my life so far. I learned so much about Yoga, Life and myself in only 4 Weeks. The Name Love School is Programm and it’s more like a Life Experience than a School or Training. It’s so much more than I expected. We had such a great Training with so professional Teachers. Meghan taught us everything about Yoga, all the Asanas, sequencing and Breathing. Not only the physical aspect also the Theming and Meditation was a part I really enjoyed. Sharada was a wonderful Yoga Philosophy Teacher with so much knowledge. I didn’t know much about the Meaning of Yoga before but she made me wanna learn more. Lindsay was a great Anatomy Teacher with an answer to every question. It’s a big topic but she was so willing to teach us safe in every asana and to get to know our bodies even better. We had a Workshop with Matt Corker and this changed my point of view for my future. This 4 weeks in Bali were really transforming and of course it was tough but this showed me so much more about myself. Meghan and her team did such a great job with creating this training. I made friends for life and had such a good time – would recommend this training to everyone.Katherina Job
Taking the YTT 200 hours with Meghan last year, was definitely one of the best decisions I ever took in my life, definitely changed my whole life and my view of the world. Meghan is an amazing human being and an incredible teacher, the way she instructs is raw, powerful and authentic. She gives so much energy to each and every student and manages to hold space for herself and for everybody at the same time. The team that surrounds her, does a mind-blowing job, the whole journey is really well organised and I felt really well taken care of during this intense month of training. I can only recommend to everybody, who is interested in Yoga, whether you want to become a teacher yourself or not, to embark on this metamorphosis with Meghan and her team. What I took home with me from the YTT is so much more than just being able to teach Yoga, it’s also about being able to see the beauty in simple things and find connection with love, humanity and nature – Loving every moment of this incredible life.Maurizia Maurer
