A special mention goes to our new visiting teacher Nino Mendes who we are more than humbled and excited to be announcing on our monthly schedule of classes in February! Nino is a hot favorite international presenter at this year's BaliSpirit Festival, and will be teaching at The Yoga Barn before the festival for all our Yoga Barn loyalists. Originally from France, find out for yourself why Urban Flow yoga has taken the yoga scene in China by storm. If you are arriving in Bali before the BaliSpirit Festival then do not, we repeat do not miss your opportunity to drink some serious yoga loving juice from this humble yogi in one of studios!

And while we are talking new teachers on our schedule we want to welcome and introduce Chris Fox , Chris is a yoga and movement teacher based in Ubud. Yoga has been an integral part of his life for the past 10 years. Having a background in Bikram and Ashtanga, Chris now explores vinyasa, yin and freedom of movement with heightened awareness for welcoming spaciousness, peace, clarity, and surrender into his life. Find him on our February schedule and say hi!

Now over to you! How are you feeling post the party season? Do you need a reset for a clearer mind in 2019? Maybe a self guided 3 Day Juice Cleanse is exactly what you need, or a fully supported 7-Day Detox Retreat is the gift you need to give yourself.

Giving Back to Community

2018 was a big year in terms of natural disasters in and around Indonesia, it also measured great progress in terms of rolling out on the ground charity program support in local Balinese communities and we were touched at how the hearts and wallets of our guests generated such incredible contributions across a variety of our key community programs. Valued in monetary terms in 2018 we raised IDR 87 million with untold hours in volunteer labour, administration support and time in kind. We are just so fortunate to live where others truly care about the positive impact they can have in their local communities.

Kick starting 2019 on a charitable note out New Years Day classes by donation raised a total of IDR 12.4 million. We wanted to personally thank everyone who came and shared their positive intentions and energy for the year ahead. Kita Bicara HIVAIDS were the happy recipients of the donations and this much needed funding helps support their nation wide HIVAID education programs in schools and local communities.
