Hello Yogis, Yoginis and Friends of The Yoga Barn,

You may have heard about the expected eruption of Mount Agung volcano in East Bali. The danger zone has been determined as the 12km radius around the volcano and locals from that area have been evacuated. In Ubud (over 40km away) and the rest of Bali, all is proceeding as usual. If you want to stay informed on the situation, this page is updated daily.

The ancient wisdom of yoga teaches that Life is already given to you, you are completely loved, you are here now. It teaches that we are not separate, cannot be separate from nature or the Universe. This union is our natural state, this union in Yoga. When you experience this connection to the fullness of creation, of source, you are doing your Yoga. All of us at Heart of Yoga are committed to broadening this message: you are fully loved, you are fully able, you are perfectly capable the way you are. We hope to transform individual awareness of this interconnection and thus human consciousness and the societies we have created.

In the early 1960’s, Harvard Psychology Professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Dr. Leary became the LSD guru, challenging convention, questioning authority, and spawned a global counter culture movement, landing in prison after Nixon called him ”the most dangerous man in America.” Dr. Alpert journeyed to India becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher for an entire generation who still continues his teaching of service through compassion. With footage spanning 80 years the film invites us to ponder questions about life, drugs, consciousness and the biggest mystery in the human landscape: death.

Maha Sadhana (" The Great Practice”) with Denise Payne
Oct 12, 19, 26 / 9:00am-12:00pm
IDR 300,000
 
Yoga’s many paths and directions are as beautiful and diverse as people’s reasons for practicing yoga. However, all reasons stem from a desire for connection—to our own bodies, to others, the universe, and more. Each journey for connection is deeply personal, unique to each individual. Strengthening our foundation in ourselves and yoga practices aides in greater connection, continued growth, and new perspectives towards challenges.
This three-hour class starts with discussion (topics vary by class), then study and practice of pranayama. An energetically-focused 90 minute asana session follows the pranayama to expand understanding of alignment and enjoyment on the mat. A guided meditation tones the subtle bodies, supported by the practice of energy balancing mudras. A chorus of healing mantras finishes the class.
Monday Movie: " Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry"
Oct 16 / 7:30pm-9:30pm
Dinner at 6.00 PM – 8.00 PM IDR 85,000, enjoy a delicious fish & veggie meal!
Movie at 7.30 PM IDR 30,000, popcorn free!

One of the most famous and successful artists in the world, Ai Weiwei has earned international acclaim as much for his provocative art work as for his political activism.  Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is the first feature-length portrait of the Chinese artist, filmmaker, and social media maven. Director Alison Klayman is given unprecedented access to Ai from the close of the 2008 Beijing Olympics (for which he helped design the acclaimed ‘Bird’s Nest’ stadium) to his arrest and 81-day detention in 2011. Presenting a unique look inside modern China, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry capture’s Ai’s artistic process in preparation for major museum shows, his intimate exchanges with family members, and his increasingly public confrontations with authorities. It reveals his irreverence, and his deeply moral convictions. Art and activism, for Ai Weiwei, come from the same place.
Soulful Sufi Night with Punnu Singh Wasu
Oct 23 / 7:30pm-9:30pm
IDR 130,000. Class card is not accepted

Dive into the sacred ocean of Sufi music with harmonium master & vocalist Punnu Singh Wasu and his musicians.

Passionate and ecstatic, spiritual and entrancing, Sufi music acts as a uniquely valuable bridge between East and West reflecting the most accessible, liberal and pluralistic aspects of unity. Punnu Singh Wasu, inspired by the renowned Pakistani singer Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan who was unarguably the most famous Sufi singer in the world, will take you on an unique journey from the traditional forms to explore the modern innovators inspired by the spirit of Sufism.

Cleanse & Colonics
3-Day Juice Cleanse
Start any day
A transformative, self-guided juice cleanse program, you can start on any day of the week. We invite you to relax, press PAUSE on hectic life, and enjoy this great introduction to fasting and detox. See the details here.
Colon Hydrotherapy
Health is not only determined by what we put into our bodies, it is also determined by our ease and frequency of eliminating waste. Colon Hydrotherapy or  "Colonics"  are the best way to detoxify the body and support the immune system. This can be especially useful when fasting, cleansing, losing weight or maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Our experienced, certified practitioners at The Yoga Barn’s Cleanse and Detox Center use sterilized equipment and triple-filtered, warm water, with a regulated pressure.  Learn more here.
We are feeling the power of community in Bali now more than ever. The whole island has come together in efforts to ensure that evacuees from the danger zone around Mount Agung have all the provisions they need - such as clean water, food, clothes and masks. Bali ReGreen - one of the outreach programs supported by The Yoga Barn - is on site at evacuation camps. If you are interested to help with a donation, you can do so online or on site at our lower reception desk.

We will be back with more news and offerings in November! In the meantime, keep up with our updates on Facebook and Instagram.
