the yogic practices

Every morning after waking up in our traditional Indonesian huts, slowly reawakening, sipping herbal tea, we will start our yoga Sadhana Practice (building a daily spiritual practice) which will include pranayama (breathwork), chanting (singing mantras) and moving into our asana practice (invigorating vinyasa flow - movement of your body, mind and spirit). This practice will open up your body to start your day and new adventure on Bali.

Later in the afternoon we will rejoin in a more gentle yoga asana practice with lots of opportunities to dive deep into our hearts and closely feel into the currents of any transformational change. When we find ourselves in a more slow pace in gentle hatha and restorative yoga, we are devoting ourselves to reflection and contemplation, balancing the rush of our busy lives. 

Our evening yoga practice will be a variety of exploring the traditional yoga practices and will include yoga nidra (yoga sleep), meditation techniques, journaling and ceremonial rituals to reconnect and remember the forces of energy that runs through us as an embodiment of love and vessel of all life.

Bali  - and exploring the island of the gods

In Bali you will instantly feel the spiritual journey take flight with its rituals, festivals and ancient culture. Everywhere you look small offerings are being made outside and on every corner to the thousands of temples that reside everywhere on Bali. Everywhere you look, you will see ceremony, ritual and sacred offerings. The Balinese families carry out their rituals and offerings with pride and everyone takes part from the youngest child, through to grandparents, all dressed immaculately for the temple. 

Explore everything Bali has to offer with incredible tours around the Island. If you want to explore Bali by yourself you can either rent a scooter or hire a driver. If you want an organised tour, Desa Seni is ready to help out. The tours highlighted on their website have been carefully selected and specifically designed to maximize your Bali experience, including the most important highlights.
