12:00-13:00 Open Heart Meditation at the Griya

Open Heart MeditationTM is universal, nondenominational, and purely experiential, centered on gentle, heart-based “feeling” rather than on brain-oriented visualizations or breathing techniques.

We’ve long been told to “follow our heart”—and this simple yet deeply effective Open Heart MeditationTM helps us do just that.

In a beautifully guided meditation with musical accompaniment, we are helped to relax and effortlessly experience the feelings of peace, calmness and happiness that are always accessible in our spiritual hearts, our direct and eternal connection to the Source of Love and Light.

A workshop exploring the breath in different poses, focusing on twisting poses. We’ll also explore variations of Uddiyanna and Moola Bhandas and Ashwini and Vajroli mudras..

08:00-09:00 Pranala Vinyasa Flow at Kelapa

This is a unique style of yoga that combines the knowledge and discipline of traditional yoga with Mudra Pranala, an ancient healing art system that was transmitted to my teacher by the beautiful Balinese shaman Tjokorda Rai. Pranala is the circulation of the flow of energy, ‘prana’ being life force and ‘nala’ the inner fire. Mudra Pranala activates the Pranayama Kosha, the body of light and through conscious union of the breath & asana practise we create healing between our body/mind connection. We connect to our higher spiritual self by shifting from thinking to sensing, merging the hemispheres of the brain, the yin & yang aspects of ourselves as well as increasing our sensitivities to the energies of Mother Earth & Father Sky/Universe.

“At first, we use our awareness to lead the energy but eventually it is the energy that leads us”

08:00-09:30 Vinyasa Flow at Life in Amed

Led by: Julia Mantik / Germany / RYT 200h Vinyasa Yoga, 50h Yin Yoga

Yoga means for me connection. Connection to my breathing, to my body, to my mind and to my true self. Yoga helped me to connect with myself again and makes me realize that I have everything I have been looking for alreadey within me. I have learned to believe in me in order to succeed in life. I want to share my love for yoga with as many people as possible. Instagram: yoga.julia

Yoga with a ‘twist’

14:00-16:00 Acro Yoga for Beginners at Balila

Acroyoga is a combination of Acrobatics, Yoga and Thai massage. In this session I will be opening the practice to those ones that are looking to connect to this art for the first time. We will explore the “hows” and “Whys” giving you tools to understand what are the seeds of this practice and how can you make it evolve.

Led by: Simon Rodrigue

Bio Since a young age, Simón had two main passions. To move and to understand how the mind works. He explored the fields of Philosophy and Psychology looking for answers and techniques to control the mind but nothing really made sense to him. That is when he found Yoga and meditation. A discipline that can give you the tools to become the master of your mind, to find a real meaning to life and a fun way of keeping your body healthy. Since then Simón has been studying and practicing the gifts of Yoga in many other disciplines, finding that it only enhances any other aspect of one’s life.

16:00-18:00 Acro Yoga Intermediate at Balila

Acroyoga for seasoned practitioners: This workshop is intended for any one that has flown more than 50 times or based more that 50 times. If you are under that you should come to the Beginners class. This class will give you an idea on what is the meaning Balance, safety, progressions and trust. I will give you the tools to find the middle point between receptivity and engagement. Come join us on a fun but challenging class

Workshops

15:30-17:30 Integral Alchemy at Blue Earth

An integral approach to explore the spectrum of human experience, focusing on the three major states of consciousness correlated to three major bodies (or simply put three body-minds): the physical, the subtle and the causal. We will explore practices for each of the three body-minds to give a direct experience of them, and elaborate on how these practices can turn “internal led into gold” – how they can influence our lives and what they are good for. The workshop will be half theory/discussion and half practice.

16:00-17:00 Canang Sari- Balinese offering workshop at Hidden Paradise

Canang Sari is pronounced like chan-ang sah-ree.

It is an offering of thanks and peace to the Hindu gods (85% of Balinese people are of the Balinese Hinduism persuasion) and hinges on the expression of gratitude not only for what we have, but also for what we want.

The components of Canang Sari are strategically chosen and precisely placed, according to the following basic directions and offerings to specific Hindu gods. Learn more about it and how to make them in this hands on workshop.

17:00-19:00 Art of Darkness at the Griya

One does not become enlightened by imagining the light, but by making the darkness conscious.

Nietzsche 

You meditate; you yoga; you concentrate on the positive, sign your emails ‘with love and light’; you laugh, sing and hug. And yet there are THEM. A pinch of judgement towards someone, jealousy, pride, anger, hatred, helplessness, addictions… – the dark stuff.

In the Art of Darkness workshop we will learn how to make sense of the dark emotions, sticky thoughts and behaviours, why it is important to embrace the negative and how to use the shadows safely to achieve our life goals. Darkness holds immense transformational power and instead of denying, suppressing and avoiding we need to learn how to dance with it. This workshop combines modern research in clinical and neuro-psychology with Eastern practices from Buddhism, Daoism and Tantric.

Dr Anastasia Belikova

Anastasia has been a university lecturer, an engineering equipment trader, a premium wine seller, an author, a failed business owner, a successful business owner, a yogi, a scientist, a spiritual seeker and many things in between.

Anastasia runs several projects, all focused on helping others to live a bright full life. Through the brand Wake up And Roar (W.A.R.) she organizes retreats, holds online and offline workshops and offers personal support in dealing with all things dark – the uncomfortable emotions, thoughts and periods of our lives, such as break-down, crisis, depression.

19:00-21:00 Standup Comedy and Kirtan at Life in Amed

Max number of attendees: 50

Join Ubud’s original Party Monkey, Om Ben, as he merges his two favorite spiritual practices, humor and singing kirtan, in this modern take on an ancient devotional form. Om Ben will teach some simple mantras and lead us in heart-felt, healing songs, interspersed with attempted comedy routines based on his hard-to-believe real-life misadventures. Be prepared to sing, to laugh, and possibly even to cry during what is sure to be a memorable evening! (Please note that due to some potentially adult language and content, parents may want to consider leaving children under the age of 37 at home for this event.)

Om Ben

Om Ben moved to Bali nearly 11 years ago after being recruited to help start up the now world famous Green School. Since leaving the project in 2013, he’s been lucky enough to play for a living. He stays busy in the Ubud area through a variety of performing gigs: music, comedy, and hosting/MCing events and festivals. Om Ben is known for his warm heart, quick mind (and quicker tongue), cheeky sense of humor, and adventurous vocal harmonies that are always enthusiastic if not 100% accurate.

LOCATION

Above Jemeluk Bay on the beautiful Amed coast of East Bali, we’re just before sunset point on the right. This part of Bali still preserves it’s natural rhythms. It’s a area of great natural beauty, both above and below the water. Come and see why many travelers consider it their favorite spot in Bali, an island of many incredible places.
