Worldwide, mindfulness is being taught in hospitals, schools, prisons, corporations, parenting centres and sports training programs.

The art of mindfulness is the returning of our attention again and again to whatever is there for us in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It is a way of directly experiencing our body, the rhythms of our breath and our inner sense of being-ness. A way of witnessing our thoughts and feelings and the spaces in between. By listening and attuning in this way we can re-establish a whole new relationship with our self and bring a sense of unity to our body and mind. We can find a way of being at peace, of discovering a renewed sense of compassion and empathy towards our self, and others. Sydel has come to Bali Spirit Festival with her husband and partner, Sam Weinstein.

Our Philosophy

It is our philosophy to encourage you to “only go to your edge” in your practice of Yoga. Everyone needs to honour his or her body as a temple. Why damage your body pushing yourself into an injury. It’s just not worth it as your temple is already beautiful. If you need an alternative pose or yoga prop please just ask. If you don’t want an adjustment just say not today. Remember adjustments are not given because you are making a mistake; rather they are given when we see an easier way to lead your body into alignment. Never allow burning feelings or nerve pinching it means you are way past your edge. The beauty in yoga is when you honour with acceptance your edge in each posture and only go to the beginning of the edge it will slowly disappear and then you can go deeper in the pose or simply be more relaxed in the posture. A new edge or limit is just in front of you whether it is in the body, mind or an emotional edge. The edge will appear and then change like the ebb and flow of the tides. The edge comes and goes and when the old one goes a new one is not far away. Change is a given in life. We always have another ocean to swim or mountain to climb.

Acceptance is Transcendance

An Adventure In Transformation

Alignment Based Yoga

External The Body

Internal the Mind & Heart

Based on the Teaching’s of BKS Iyengar, Meditations to Free the Spirit and Drop the Mind, Ecstatic Dance to Let Go into Your Joy, Breath with Release, Cleansing and Life Guidance, Postural Integration and the proper way to build weight bearing muscles so as to prevent injury and make Asana work with you and not against you

Unconditional Love & Acceptance

Leads to Transformation

 

The World Of Yoga and Community

One thing that is so much fun is that each group is full of people who the most they know about each other is the colour of the yoga mat they see them on at yoga class. Included in our yoga pot , are people from around the world that no one has met before. A group of mostly unconnected people. Unconnected until they do yoga, meditate, chant, laugh, eat good food,visit holy temples , experience traditional healers, ride on planes together, swim,hike & explore, get sweaty in yoga poses together, get up early, sit in hot springs, dance, and do even more yoga all together in one big family. We call it

“The Bali Yoga Family Effect”.

Our yoga practice takes us to knew heights with everyone helping and supporting each other in each asana. People do poses they have never been able to do and let go of fears in others and laugh in some as well.

      Each year we have seen deep friendships  develop all around the healthy concept of Yoga. Here we offer you a chance to truly live your Yoga not only physically but on an emotional spiritual level. Dropping the barriers that separate us and allowing a community to form.

     If a few more people can practice this kind of Transformation then we just could be  on our way to a door that will lead us to World Peace.

    Could it be by accepting ourselves and each other we just may experience Unconditional Love and Peace within ourselves.

Faith Hope Charity Unconditional Acceptance & Love

 

🙏 Bali Safe and the truth about the volcano

 *Healing of Bali. You may of heard that  Mount Agung erupted on Nov.26th 2018

Thousands of local Balinese were evacuated and displaced .Mount Agung is considered to be the 6th Chakra of the world. Intuition and Empathy.It is said that with the eruption comes a new period of healing,rebirth and a deeper opening of our awareness and empathy.  Ubud and all places where we will be and especially the Festival are over 60k from the zone of excluaion and totally safe. The airport always opens after a rain washes the ash away and everyone floods back in to the Island of Magic  The people of Bali have been devastated by this eruption as people stopped visiting. No tourist and no customers for the people of Bali means no income and no food. We will bring with us  gifts for the children of Bali . We will also attend a special ceremony where we will participate with a high preist to give our faith and support to the people of Bali and this new chapter. This is a chance to be in the aftermath of one of the greatest releases of energy Bali and the world have seen. A rare chance to be part of this healing ceremony . Remember Bali will survive and you have a chance to support her don’t let unfounded fears stop you. A very wise High Priest told me today we are stronger when we stand together.
