Hello Yogis, Yoginis and Friends of The Yoga Barn,

In May, we say, 'come and play'. Make it your month of stepping outside of the box, mixing up your patterns and inviting your inner child to the party. We invite you to explore new sounds, move in new and fascinating ways, to laugh in classes, experiment with the wonders of breath work and put new theories into practice. Flick that switch to take a look at life through childlike lenses and focus on embodying a fun, vivacious and brighter version of yourself. This yoga path is about dissolving patterns that trap us, so shake them off and embrace the 'fun'.

Our monthly workshops and events seem especially curated for the 'mix it up' May theme. You can hang out upside down, learn to fly in yoga, rebalance the body, play with props and open your mind to the mysteries of life as deciphered through the stars. Oh.., the potential 'within' is boundless?

And how does the concept of 'bright and shiny' resonate with you? Is this your month to embody the aspiration from the inside out? Body cleansing is a powerful and potent process that meets the desire to feel light, fun and more accepting of the self. Soak up the juice (literally!) and re-educate your mind and body in our May 12 to 19, Ultimate 7 Day Detox retreat. Experience the benefits of adopting fasting in your overall lifestyle and connect more deeply back to self. And whilst on the concept of wellness from the inside out we now have Vitamin Infusion Therapy administered by the nursing team of The Dose Bali. Based out of The Yoga Barn you can now book a treatment specific to your health needs whether recovering from Bali Belly, a long haul flight or to receive a serious boost of hydration during your yoga training course.

NEW blog articles are live on our website this month with our 'Yoga activism and cutting to the heart of womens yoga training' with Bex Tyrer offering insights into her upcoming trainings in May and June (see Yoga Teacher Training section below), and Why Colonic Hydrotherapy is beneficial for any detox?

Inbox inspiration. We are all about keeping information fresh and are excited to be launching a NEW look newsletter. Plus we are super keen to know what will add value to your life. What is it you want to see, read and learn from Yoga Barn from your inbox? We are asking for your contribution by way of answering a few quick and simple 'What you want' Enewsletter Survey questions.

Our 'Community' focus in the coming months means holding space to extend our studio facilities with renovations to our River Dome studio. The overall goal being by midyear to invite more of our yoga community to 'Head Space' and 'Community Class' offerings. So with building in May and June there are two community classes - Intro Balinese Dance and Acro Yoga Play on our schedule. Creating space for greater good sometimes means short term changes and we hope to reach our regular Head Space Community and Community Class attendee's with this message.

So in the spirit of fun and living large our team send you love from mumma Bali and hope you find inspiration to re-meet that inner child and come and play with us sometime!

For a limited time | Bio-Electrical Therapy
Tune up the energy body by booking an appointment for a Bio-Electrical Healing Session . The energy body much like any electrical system needs to be serviced for efficient flow, transfer and distribution. Removing vital line blockages is the catalyst to physical body healing through high performing bio-electro currency. The ultimate frequencies moving you to a place of mental clarity, and increased self-awareness.⁣ This non-invasive treatment discharges interference that slows the effectiveness of energy through the organ channel pathways, chakra's and Sephiroth.

Testimonial from a recent guest: "I am finally relieved of years of chronic back pain with renewed movement and peace of mind."⁣
Vitamin Infusion Therapy | The Dose Bali
Feel better, faster with Vitamin Infusion Therapy!  The Dose Bali is now based out of The Yoga Barn and they are all about giving the care you need, where you need it and when. You may have received intravenous (IV) treatments recovering from Bali Belly food poisoning, or to boost vitamins to manage illness-related fatigue, haziness and muscle soreness, but have you considered the same hydration and energy-boosting benefits before or after long haul holiday flights?⁣

⁣In Bali’s tropical climate, on a yoga retreat or holistic healing holiday, the danger of dehydration from overactivity and sun exposure can be high. The nutrient-rich, directly administered treatments enhance absorption reducing the waiting (and discomfort) time of oral supplements. Boosting electrolytes and vitamins can often be felt by the end of an IV session which is why we are excited to have such remedies on hand to ensure our visitors get the best out of their visitor experiences. Adding to that we now have an onsite GP, Dr Rynda in our Centre for Wellness and Healing .⁣

All treatments can be booked at our Center for Wellness and Healing reception or via WA/Call +62 819 1162 7744.
