At Radiantly Alive, we don’t just train yoga teachers—we teach you to become masters of asana instruction, unlock the infinite potential you have to inspire and uplift others, and welcome you into an international community of love, support, and growth. The Radiantly Alive 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training provides an exceptional and intense month of physical, emotional, and spiritual exploration, growth, and liberation. After all, yoga is so muchmore than the poses.
At the heart of Radiantly Alive is a deep belief in the power of community. We sincerely believe that yoga (that life, really) is not just about connecting with the self, but rather with those around us. It is through that deep love and those connections with others that extraordinary insight, growth, love, inspiration, and transformation takes place. We journey inward not solely for ourselves, rather so we may inspire others and lift one another to new heights.
This Teacher Training is just the first step in a long journey with us. If you join the Radiantly Alive community, you will become a lifelong member of an internationally recognized network of yoga leaders. As an alumni, you will have the unique opportunity to continue your education with Radiantly Alive through a variety of pathways, including the exclusive opportunity to study one-on-one with a Radiantly Alive Senior Teacher at our studio in Ubud, Bali.

We don’t pretend to have all the answers. Instead, what we offer are questions and a safe space to explore and connect with your authentic self. Whether you’re looking to be a yoga teacher or just want to deepen your practice, Radiantly Alive is the perfect place to do so. We’re waiting for you.
Join Radiantly Alive on a journey to expand your knowledge of both yoga and yourself. Through this program, delve into the history and mythology of rich yoga tradition, while deepening your own practice and learning how to safely and powerfully share yoga with others. You will learn:
More about yourself than you ever imagined!
*Occasionally we will have special events in the evening.

Sanna Kokkonen, Teaching Faculty
Yoga has been Sanna’s passion and driving force for more than twenty odd years. She has fond memories of being one of Petri Raisanen’s first Ashtanga Yoga students in the early 90’s. In a small loft room of a dance studio in Helsinki, Finland she practiced this ‘under-ground’ thing called ‘Ashtanga’ and for the next fifteen years lived a strict disciplined, sweaty, asana based life under the glow of the charismatic Sri K. Patthabi Jois.
Patthabi Jois’ sad departure led eventually to the joyful discovery of Lama Marut, her wise and witty spiritual mentor who changed the course of her yoga path towards the inner practices; meditation, pranayama and eastern spiritual thinking and philosophy. Lama Marut authorized Sanna to teach Tibetan Heart Yoga – a form of yoga developed secretly inside the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries.
Home for Sanna is Asia, Bali and her beloved yoga studio Radiantly Alive. Her goal is to always strive to become a better version of herself and try in small ways to make the world a slightly better place. Her sincere hope is that by sharing the ancient system of yoga through her own learning and experiences, she can help her fellow beings to become a better version of their current self. Sanna is responsible for teaching Yoga History and Philosophy.
