From Daniel's Perspective
"This 'old' video well shows the magic, which has only multiplied with the evolution of the YTT now with Omega Institute's hosting and production"
Daniel Aaron’s Yoga Teacher Training brings so much more to our trainees than phenomenal yoga education.
Think of it as a powerful and fun 26-day blast into life mastery, an awakening to who you really are, and a rocketship ride of joyful transformation that will radically and positively alter your life forever more.
That would be more accurate, yet a cumbersome title. You will develop mastery in Yoga, the skills of teaching (moving bodies and touching souls), and how to thrive both physically and emotionally. You will refine your understanding of the intimacy that deepens all relationships and a meaningful connection and congruence with your own unique and beautiful soul.
Through our rich and intentionally-designed curriculum, professional attention to quality, a world-class faculty who have been leaders in their specialities for decades, along with the delicious, organic living foods and a grace which uplifts our yogic, learning community every time, your path to life-changing transformation is supported in every possible way.
It’s time. Are you ready? Time to wake up; to live anew. To awaken to the purposeful, inspired, incredible life that is waiting for you. Twenty-six days on the Islands of the Gods, with cleansing food, amazing yoga and deep self inquiry. It has the power to transform your world in a momentous way.
This is not your regular teacher training. Through tried and proven experiences, you will become much more than a yoga teacher; you will become empowered to live life in the extraordinary. A life of freedom, vitality, fulfillment and love.
What do we do differently? We take the ancient practice of yoga and bring it to life in mind and body through a range of different avenues. We take the body as a starting point, giving you tools and information needed to have a vibrant, energetic state. Though we will do a juice cleanse, our entire diet is cleansing (and delicious) gourmet living foods prepared by our Living Food Chef program. Rather than a single teacher, a single style, we bring in internationally acclaimed presenters of all styles and disciplines to give you a broad and holistic learning experience. We draw from twelve years of creating trainings and obsess about the curriculum and schedule so you can fully immerse yourself without worrying about the details. We host the training in one of the most spiritually rich places in the world, Bali. In short, we see yoga not just as a physical practice but a vehicle for learning how to let go of limiting beliefs and open a world of possibilities. Our entire curriculum is created to give you the power to live anew, to be a leader and to make a difference in the world.
If you are looking for a yoga holiday, or want to learn yoga on a purely physical level, this is not the training for you. If you are searching for something more and you see or feel the possibility of creating real, lasting change for yourself, then read on. And feel – in addition to thinking – is it time? Are you ready?
This is not just any Yoga Teacher Training. This is also an accelerated growth and leadership program in which you will receive an absolute transformation in infinite ways. I loved the program while going through it, but I felt a bit of dissonance at the end. After returning home and enduring a slightly rough transition back to my everyday life, I found that 6 weeks later, my life had been completely transformed and so had I. Plus, I'm finding an abundance of opportunities to share my yoga and get paid for it! The experience was, and still is, magical! I have a feeling that the transformation in my everyday life has really just begun, and I cannot wait to see all the magic that is still to unfold as a result of this training.
The faculty is just one of the stand out aspects of a Daniel Aaron Yoga Teacher Training. Instead of the industry norm of one or two different teachers with minimal experience, we fly in internationally acclaimed teachers from multiple different disciplines, all with decades of teaching experience. As a result you will receive the highest level of teaching, and a broad knowledge and understanding of the modern yoga spectrum.
Over 2 decades of experience in yoga and personal transformation, Daniel is a Yoga teacher, writer and human potential coach, Daniel leads trainings, workshops, classes and guides people to live their potential for happiness, health and success. Creator of the world recognized Daniel Aaron Yoga Teacher Trainings in 2005, Daniel also founded the Radiantly Alive Yoga studio in Ubud, Bali in 2012. His own obsession with learning and living fully brought him to learning from many of the modern masters, traveling the world with enlightened teachers and to delving into radically nutrition and cleansing. Blending what he has learned into a unique system of self-enquiry, movement and breath work, Daniel reaches people with compassion and evokes a space of understanding to inspire people to see their full range of possibilities. An unquenchable motivation to awaken himself and spark enlightenment in others has resulted in a profound awareness of human potential, the obstacles to living awake and a methodology to reaching it.

Udo earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of British Columbia, followed by graduate studies in biochemistry and genetics. 1980 marked a major turning point for Udo, when he was poisoned by pesticides. To heal himself, he turned his attention to the field of nutrition. Several years of research culminated in his first book Fats and Oils(1986), which established Udo as a sought-after expert on the subject. In 1983, he began to pioneer technology for pressing and packaging edible, fresh oils ‘made with health in mind’, by excluding three main factors that can damage nutritious EFAs-rich oils and turn them into toxic ones – light, heat and oxygen. Udo published his best-seller Fats That Heal Fats That Kill (1993), which became recognized as the ‘bible on fats’, then authored a condensed version called Choosing the Right Fats (2001). He co-authored Omega-3 Cuisine (2008), which includes original recipes by celebrity chef Alan Roettinger.
To set new standards for food oils and other health-supporting consumer products, Udo partnered with Flora Manufacturing and Distributing Ltd. in 1994 to create the Udo’s Choice® health product line, which includes EFA-rich oil blends, probiotic blends, digestive enzyme blends, a fiber (prebiotic) blend, a greens blend with fermented greens, and pet supplements. In 2005, Udo was inducted into the CHFA Hall of Fame for his tireless efforts educating the public about the difference between good oils and bad oils and for pioneering higher production standards of unrefined flax and other oils, methods which are still used today. Since 1986, Udo has completed more than 5,000 live presentations and 3,000 media interviews in over 30 countries, and has written hundreds of articles. He is the father of three grown children, resides in Vancouver, B.C., and is currently working on his latest books, including two on fats and oils, due out in 2017.
Sandrine Kamhi, born in France, began her journey to yoga in Geneva in 2002, when she was working as a children’s rights consultant for an NGO to improve education and children’s rights. She immediately fell in love with yoga, and before she knew it, yoga became her life. After years of practicing and studying consistently various styles of yoga, she began on her path as a teacher in 2009, in Istanbul, Turkey. She has been completed several trainings in Vinyasa, Ashtanga yoga, and Jivamukti yoga, and is recognized for her warm presence, positive energy, attitude, and spirit. Sandrine’s teaching style creates a supportive foundation for students to feel balanced, energized, and confident both on and off the mat. She aims to nourish and empower students at every level of practice. Besides yoga, Sandrine has studied non-verbal communication and body language. She is also a licensed therapist in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.
Dylan was fortunate enough to be introduced to yoga and meditation in 1988. These essential tools helped him negotiate the turbulent seas of his teens and twenties. Then Ashtanga yoga discovered Dylan at the end of his first year in India. He has maintained a daily practice ever since. A lifelong interest in Asian philosophy, culture and poetics brought him to reside in Asia, where he has maintained his home base since 2001. He has learned immensely both by traveling widely and by living in Vietnam, India and now Hong Kong.
In addition to time spent in Mysore with Guruji, Saraswathi and Sharath Jois, Dylan has been blessed to connect with other dear senior teachers from the Ashtanga lineage. He has worked diligently with Prem and Radha Carlisi at Ashtanga Yoga Bali Research Center, where he is honoured to substitute teach for them each summer. He has also been shaped by studying under Rolf and Marci Naujokat, Tim Miller, Clayton Horton, Kristina Karitinou Ireland, Casey J. Palmer, Vijay Amar and Cliff Barber. He has taught on four continents and continues to be influenced by many other teachers and diverse traditions.
Dylan has a master's degree in Buddhist studies, has been authorised to teach Ashtanga yoga by the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute and is EYRT-500 certified by Yoga Alliance. A student of teaching techniques, Dylan has a background in pedagogy and cognitive development. He strives to put students into direct contact with their own true internal teachers. Yoga has never been limited to asana for Dylan and yet, he values the critical role that the physical practice can play in bringing light to one's whole being. Essentially, Dylan remains a pluralist, believing in many kinds of truth and many manners of realization.

Note: some faculty on some trainings may present virtually.
ASANA, PRANAYAMA, MEDITATION
The majority of our curriculum is dedicated to these areas. Most days will begin with a morning meditation and pranayama practice, followed by a 90 minute Vinyasa asana class. During these morning Sadhana sessions, you will be guided though and taught various yogic techniques to improve breathing, aid calmness of mind and increase energy levels.
ANCIENT CONCEPTS, MODERN APPLICATIONS
One of the true and notable differences of a Radiant Life Training is the philosophy of personal transformation. While we delve into the origins of yoga and the traditional yogic philosophy, we will spend a great deal of time on what is applicable, practical and inspiring for you right now; the core aspects of your being which are yet to manifest, and the possibilities of what you could achieve in your life. Through the Radiant Life Core Curriculum, which involves group and one-on-one discussions, sharing, introspective practices, expansion exercises and more, your learning experience will be comprehensively affecting beyond what you can imagine from a training experience.
LEADERSHIP, SPACE CREATION, CLARITY OF INSTRUCTION
This is where you find your voice. How to hold space for a room of people and how to guide people in an experience that enhances your life. Speaking in front of a group is a fear for many people and this is where you learn to not only overcome this barrier, but excel as a teacher and a leader as you step into your power.
In these sessions you will find Daniel Aarons basics of Asana, correct alignment, sequencing and flow.
STRUCTURE, INJURY PREVENTION AND ENERGETICS OF ANATOMY
In a contemporary, non-traditional approach, learn the directly applicable and dynamic practical anatomy for your personal and professional practice and teaching. Think less school-book ‘turn to page 37’ and more ‘alive, open, organic and functional’ movement, where discussions and practical lessons delve into the depths of how your body works and how to optimize your practice whilst preventing injury and creating range of movement.
" This training exceeded all my expectations on so many levels. I am blown away at the absolute dedication and passion of the team. It is unbelievable what Daniel has managed to incorporate into a month’s time! I have been exposed to so much none that I ever thought possible. It is by far the best value and the best thing I have ever spent my money and my time on. I have grown and evolved into myself, into more of the person I have every potential to become. I have come out the other side of this training stronger, happier, more playful, concentrated, dedicated, expanded, more in love with myself, those around me, and life.

- Los Angles, Yoga Teacher -
"I completed my radiantly alive training in October - November , 2010. Before I started my training I was struggling with a lot of things in my life. I was struggling with my carrier, I was struggling with my relationship, I was struggling with getting older of having aches and pains. I wanted to teach yoga as a supplement of my income. I thought it would be a nice way to make a living while I'm still pursuing my real passion at that time which is writing and writing is still a passion of mine. But after I finished my Teacher Training, yoga became my thing, my life and I started teaching full time about a year after I completed teacher training. And just by day by day, new opportunities presented themselves and I keep learning more and more about the practice. Learning more my own practice, learning about teaching, working with more and more people, different kind of people different ages, different body types, different issues that were plugging them. You know the more I taught, the more I taught with people the more I found that yoga had something to offer to everybody.It takes me to all around the world. I lead retreats in Peru, Iceland , Bali and Jamaica. You know it really opens up all kinds of avenue that I could never imagine. My health is better than its ever been. I'm happy with my life, relationship and my carrier. Its been a really dramatic transformation. Its seems that it just getting better everyday, the more I practice the more I stay truth on what I learn on my training. Its kind of magical, I don't know but it changes my life in all the best possible ways."
It’s true and fair to say that I am a teacher, coach, writer, astrologer and counselor. What unites all that I say and do though, and who I am? A man passionate about helping people end suffering, obsessed with learning, growth and transformation and committed to creating a new paradigm of vibrant living for all beings.
I’ve been working with and teaching people for more than 3 decades. For the last 25, one of the primary vehicles for helping people change has been yoga, and I’ve led and trained thousands of yoga students and teachers. I founded Radiantly Alive, a world-renowned center and school in Bali, created highly regarded professional trainings for living-food chefs, yoga teachers and for leadership, and lead trainings and seminars at Omega Institute.
My reputation – that I get powerful results for students and clients – derives from the depth of my own discipline, uncanny perception into others and a massive love for all beings. I teach and shares in a way that brings people to feeling deeply understood, accepted, inspired and transformed. My talks, workshops and events guarantee participants will have raucous fun and get powerful breakthroughs in multiple aspects of their lives according to their own definitions of success and happiness. Perhaps what I do best is create environments where people shine.
In short, my mission and passion is helping people turn their lives into art - into the masterpiece that's a shining reflection of the unique glory that they are at essence.
Originally from Maine, aspiritual awakening - from 1992-1995 - shook me alert to aspects of life and consciousness that are seen by few. Since then I’ve been constantly growing into better and better ways of uplifting others to live into their potential.
My own journey includes decades of yoga with the modern masters; ruthless personal and spiritual development; radical therapies, trainings and mentorships with enlightened teachers; my own constant self-inquiry, most commonly derived from the ordinary human challenges of my commitment to kindness, authenticity and masterful service via writing, teaching and coaching; single fathering a 10 year old angel; and founding, running and selling businesses.
