Pagi ini tanggal 9 Desember 2013, kami dibangunkan oleh suara gemuruh di langit, pertanda akan turun hujan. Tahu apa yang ada di benak kami? mungkin saja kita akan kehujanan saat beryoga, karena lokasinya outdoor, di Pantai Kuta. Ternyata pasrah itu perlu, ... namun ternyata sampai di Kuta sekitar jam 6.30 am, eh cuaca cukup terang. Thanks God, kami bisa tersenyum. akhirnya tepat jam 6.45 tamu2 pada datang dari tempatnya menginap, berjalan kaki. mereka adalah rombongan pecinta yoga dari Singapore. Orangnya baik2 banget, keibuan deh. (memang harusnya Ibu-ibu itu ya keibuan to?) Akhirnya kami mulai beryoga...laaah! Dipandu Oleh yoga teacher Yuni, kelas berjalan lancar. cuaca cerah, everything is Ok laaah...! (ngomongnya pakai logat Singapore nih). Siapapun dia, darimanapun mereka berasal, ...yang penting yoga...supaya hidup sehat dan berbahagia. Thanks and Cu...

What is Guru? The Sam'skrta word "Guru" has two parts. It is a compound word. "Gu" means darkness. "Ru" means dispelling entity. The one who dispels is called Ru. Guru means the entity who dispels darkness from the mind.
The tantrikas say that there are three kinds of gurus--adhama (lowest) guru, madhyama (mediocre) guru, and uttam (highest) guru. The lowest type of gurus discharge their duty merely by mouthing big words and teaching theoretically. They do not bother to see if their disciples are following their instructions sincerely or not. The mediocre gurus teach their disciples, no doubt, and also supervise their progress to some extent. But the best gurus teach their disciples properly, follow their progress meticulously, and if they find their disciples straying from the path of spirituality, they compel them to do their practice by creating circumstantial pressure.
The Tantrik scriptures describe the qualities of an ideal guru; tranquil; self-controlled; able to raise their own kundalini and that of others also; modest; soberly dressed; of exemplary conduct; well-established in society; pure in body and mind; adept in both spiritual theory and spiritual practice; superbly intelligent; maintaining a balanced family life; Established in dhyana (contemplation); well-versed in Tantra and Mantra; and able to reward and punish their disciples.
The Tantric scriptures also describe the qualities of an ideal disciple: tranquil; modest and humble; of pure soul; having reverence; capable of receiving ideas clearly; competent and ever ready to carry out the guru's command; able to raise one's own kundalini; having requisite knowledge and experience; of noble conduct; and having a balanced mind.
Every person is entitled to do sa'dhana'. Thus Sagun'a Brahma must appear to everyone in the form of a Sadguru. But if one does not have a keen desire for emancipation, one cannot claim this right; and that is why Sagun'a Brahma does not appear to everyone. When the desire for salvation becomes intense, only then do human beings attain Sadguru. Thus it is said, that only those who have reached the proper time in their evolution, are entitled to attain Sadguru and learn sa'dhana'.
By means of sa'dhana', one attains liberation. For this one will have to resort to a special method. Only one who knows this method can teach others; the spiritual aspirant must search for a competent teacher to teach the science of meditation. So in order to learn the spiritual science and attain salvation, is not the necessity of a spiritual guru undeniable? Otherwise, can anyone learn this spiritual science by oneself? If someone does not open the gate to a house--if someone does not loosen the chains from those who are enchained, their hands and feet can never free themselves in spite of the most vigorous efforts. In exactly the same way, it is impossible for one who is enchained by Prakrti to attain liberation from this vast prison of the universe.
Besides, it is not possible for anyone to learn the methods and strategies of anything, by oneself. It needs the help of a competent instructor who can teach well, and who can be followed. This sort of indispensable teacher is known as a guru. One should learn the methods of intuitional practice from such a guru. Hence without the help of the guru, it is not possible to attain liberation. The first and foremost requisite for attaining liberation is a guru.

kelasnya lucu..., kelucuan pertama yang tidak lazim adalah: yoga mat yang warna Pink selalu tidak laku alias tidak ada yang memakai, mungkin saja mereka sok ABG kali ye... gak mau lagi memakai aksesori yang bernuansa pinky. :) .Kelucuan berikutnya adalah saat diadakan yoga demonstration di tengah2 kelas, ada yang komen,"aku yang hanya menonton saja rasanya sakit," hahaha Trus kelucuan berikutnya adalah ketika ada yang bilang, "lapar" hmmm anak mami banget. Dan banyak lagi kelucuan lainnya. Tapi mereka seneng kok yoga, meskipun saat yoga ada yang komen juga, bilang begini,"Kenapa ya kita harus yoga?" sambil pasang muka masih ngantuk hahaha...
Menurut saya sih, bagus banget mereka diperkenalkan yoga di usia ABG (10-12 tahun) sehingga mereka bisa menyeimbangkan antara ketenangan jiwa dan kenakalannya . salam yoga... Na'ma'ska'r.

Bagi yang biasa mengajar yoga pada event-event tertentu mungkin sudah tahu suka dukanya. kadang juga ada kejadian lucunya (termasuk golongan yang mana ya, suka atau duka?). Setengah jam sebelum kelas dimulai, seperti biasanya kita semua sudah sampai di lokasi, Grand Nikko Resort, Nusa Dua-Bali. Gak nyangka aja, matahari jam 6 pagi kok sudah cukup panas. Tapi ok lah, resiko jadi pengajar yoga ya memang harus begini ini, berjemur!. Setelah matras yoga siap semua, trus mereka sudah pada datang, berjumlah 39 orang lalu mulailah mereka berjalan menuju matras dan dengan PD nya merubah semua susunan matras yang sudah teratur (ngaturnya lama lagi, hitungan senti!) karena takut terkena sinar matahari. (wahhh kalau milih yoga outdoor, ya harus berani berjemur dong mbak, mas). Dan akhirnya kita mulai kelas sekitar jam 6.40am. 30 menit kelas berlangsung, beberapa orang mulai menjauh, ada yang menyeret matrasnya ke bawah pohon, ada yang membalikkan arah badannya ke samping, ada juga yang selalu menutupi wajahnya dengan saputangan agar tidak kena sinar matahari. takut flek kali yeee. Bisa dibayangkan nggak, melakukan yoga pose dengan tangan selalu menutupi wajah? Dan begitulah, sepertinya keadaan sudah mulai tidak terkontrol. akhirnya setelah menit ke 50, saya mulai ambil pose berbaring, sebenarnya saya belum mau rileaksasi sih. tapi saat mulai berbaring semua pada teriak, "Yes, this is my Favorite pose, relaxation." akhirnya karena teachernya masih baik dan berperasaan halus, jadi langsung saja tancaaappp! Relaksasi dimulai....smoga mimpi indah:P Note.Satu lagi yang lucu, setelah yoga selesai semua orang menggulung matrasnya sendiri, aku pikir ah mungkin mereka baik semua, mau bantu rapikan matras, eh ternyata mereka mau membawa matrasnya pulang. Duh duh mbak, mas...matrasku masih belum lunas, jangan diambil ya, begitu aku bergumam. Ada ada saja...

"May all being be Happy."
The Supreme Consciousness is there in you as the oil is in the oilseed. Crush the seed through sa'dhana and you attain Him; separate the mind from Consciousness and you will see that the resplendence of the Supreme Consciousness illuminates your whole inner being. He is there like butter in curd; churn it and He will appear from within. Churn your mind through sa'dhana and God will appear like butter from curd. He is like a subterranean river in you. Remove the sands of mind and you will find the clear, cool waters within.

"...strongly believe that beauty is only skin deep. It is more important to be physically & mentally balance than being “just” beautiful. I have found my cosmic equilibrium through yoga, cooking and a wonderful family life." ~Dentia
The ancient practice of yoga have been known to reduce stress level through a natural and organic movement that only use the human own bodies balance and strength, in yoga it is important to trust your intuition and recognize your strength boundaries in order to get the maximum benefit of the yoga pose.
For a while I have been searching for the perfect exercise for myself until I finally fell in love with yoga sometime in 2010, I have tried almost all the exercise style that were available in my gym from body combat, hip hop dance (please don’t laugh), aerobic (minus the 80’s costume) and belly dancing (ok laugh). But none of these exercises have an impact like yoga, the balance between body fitness, flexibility and tranquility of the mind brought calmness to me. This has shifted my general perspective of life, from how I eat, how I breathe, to the way I deal with problems. I believe within a healthy body contains a healthy mind, treating our body like a temple is the key to finding some balance in life.
Before I fell in love with yoga as a form of body and mind exercise, I fell in love with cooking, it came so naturally to me through the influence of my mother, I was always busy in the kitchen as (or so I thought then) her souse chef, there’s nothing more as I child that I look forward to than the smell of spices being ground, rattling pots and pans, getting to know all kind of fresh produce and of course the fruit of the labor. my love for cooking has been an ongoing affair even when my academic program has nothing to do with cooking I’ve always managed to find time for cooking, as years have progressed my line of work has once again brought me to be in the domestic kitchen fulltime.
My husband’s love for surfing and living close to nature has brought us to the beautiful island of Bali, this opportunity is perfect because I want to raise my children close to nature. we are also blessed that Bali have abundance of fresh ingredients and the endless variety of spices, not to mention a beautiful landscape and surroundings . when we had the idea to run the surf house I thought it was perfect I am happy to admit that I love cooking but hate working , nick is in charge of the surf guiding and I am in charge on how the house run and the meal for our guest. Beside catering to the hungry surfers I also manage to fit their special dietary program into my menu, this put an extra challenge to everyday cooking.
That is how the journey of my competitive cooking begun, often in the competition I feel the need to keep my mind and body in a healthy balance so I head to the hotel gym, lay out my mat and do at least a basic Hatha for 60 min, although exercise alone is not enough. Consequently I'm always cautious about what I eat, this habit has also affected the way I cook because I tend to always have 3 different components on my plate, a balance of protein, carbohydrate and vegetable.
Speaking as a parents I believe that living and eating healthy can be contagious, the goodness can come from within and radiate towards others, after all I also strongly believe that beauty is only skin deep. It is more important to be physically & mentally balance than being “just” beautiful. I have found my cosmic equilibrium through yoga, cooking and a wonderful family life. (Dentia)

Berbicara tentang Bali memang tidak pernah habis-habisnya. Keanekaragaman budaya dan keunikan alam pulau Bali selalu menjadi magnet untuk menarik wisatawan untuk berkunjung. Banyak hal yang bisa diulas tentang Bali, termasuk Yoga dan Meditasi. Team Bali Yoga Teacher lagi dan lagi dengan senang hati berbagi yoga di kawasan perhotelan BTDC Nusa Dua area. Kali ini bersama peserta dari UEA. mereka semua adalah pria dan kebanyakan berbadan besar dan gemuk (sering makan Burger kali yee). Saat melakukan yoga terlihat ekspresi "kesakitan" di wajah mereka hehehe...maklumlah, mereka semuanya adalah beginner level. Mereka lebih memilih diajar oleh Nyoman Wahyuni, ketimbang Made, mungkin karena Yuni wanita kali ya, duh gak laku aku!. Pastinya mereka sangat menyukai yoga bersama kami. terima kasih buat seluruh team Melia Bali Resort Nusa Dua, yang asyik menonton kita diantara semak2 di kegelapan hahaha...

days that followed were a lovely flow of holistic sessions ranging from
massages, beauty treatments, yoga and meditation to sacred arts (such
as Aikido and Somatic Therapy) and (the best) a watsu water massage –
each one designed in a careful sequence, said Janur, to help me let go a
little more each time.
Highlights included a private session
with Made, a talented yoga teacher who has developed his own style of
Tantra Healing yoga. His skill in perceiving my energy levels and where I
was ‘at’ put me at ease straight away, and we began with a meditation
before commencing yoga. He noticed the slight scoliosis in my back, and
we worked on yoga postures and stretches to help release and then
strengthen certain areas along my spine. He even incorporated massage in
the session, using a combination of Thai and Shiatsu.
the prefect prelude to my watsu, a water healing massage that, the
therapist explained, was especially designed to help you let go. A watsu
can bring up old traumas, emotions or just make you feel decadently
free – as was the case in my experience. It was easily one of the most
beautiful healing experiences I’ve ever had...............

"Truly appreciated your Zen Thai Shiatsu Massage. I truly felt your true practice of the art of healing, your compassionate intent of the healer. I read about Thai Massage, "It is a combination of influences from Indian, Chinese, Southeast Asian cultural spheres and traditions of medicine. The Buddhist spiritual practices associated with Thai massage cultivate humility, awareness, and concentration. This compassionate state of being is termed "Metta", which usually translates as "loving kindness"."This is not easy job at all, this may only true from people who has sincere willingness to help and kindness.
THUMBS UP to you Made Agus Wirayasa."

Zenthai draws from the respected healing traditions of Zen Shiatsu and Traditional Thai Massage whilst using proven Osteopathic techniques. Mindfulness and heart delivery are highly emphasised throughout the experience.
The Yoga Therapy and Osteopathic techniques which also are heavily emphasised within the program allow the practitioner another set of effective tools for their healing practice.
Zen Shiatsu (literally meaning ‘finger pressure’) was founded by Shizuto Masunaga over 100 years ago. Based around the Chinese Meridian System it is an in-depth healing art of how we can utilize Ki (life-force) to keep our bodies and minds in a state of equilibrium.
Our day-to-day interaction with our internal and external environment can create blockages or leave deficiencies. Zen Shiatsu is based around using Ki and the principles of Yin-Yang to sustain a balanced state that leave us vitalized, alive and free beings.
TTM (Traditional Thai Massage) is an ancient form of healing that draws its roots from India in the time of the Buddha (776 BC). Performed in a meditative, pure state it is a magical dance that involves stretching and aligning of the energetic and structural body. Similar to yoga it draws its roots from the most ancient healing practice of Aruyveda and often leaves clients with a renewed vigour and clarity.
Mindful touch offers an experience like no other. Within it are the seeds for deep transformation and awakening..this is healing. Memories and traumas stored within the body are able to be accessed to allow the return of freedom back to our energetic and structural bodies.
“Life is energy. Without it nothing moves… nothing rests. Without energy, matter is inanimate. When we see energy we are seeing spirit. Each spirit is a manifestation of the Great Spirit, Tao.?? Therefore, we must not make negative judgements about anyone. Instead we must marvel at the creativity of God, or Tao.
As Oriental Medicine practitioners, our only desire is to facilitate the movement of energy, with ourselves and each person we encounter – to bring forth our own inner being, as well as the inner being of those around us. By acquiring this wonderful knowledge, we have it in our power to serve such a purpose: to move energy in the direction in which it already wants to go. What a great way to live.”
“Those who live passionately show us how to love. Those who love passionately show us how to live”

(Please visit link bellow for complete article )
They warn me it will be cold, but I am warmed by Sanskrit chanting and the ringing of a small bell. That does not last – it is cold, yet walking back to my room in my sopping wet sarong, I feel energized, renewed and ready for whatever comes next. What comes next is a handsome, young, yoga instructor with the posture of a marine who takes me through a flowing sequence.
The private session ends with him guiding my limbs through a Tai Chi-style stretch that throws me into bliss, so of course I laugh when he says, ‘Now time for relaxation.’ A short closing meditation and I’m off to a breakfast of yogurt and goji berries.
The week flies by filled with bodywork, massage, colonic hydrotherapy, Somatic (dialogue and movement) and water healing (please try this – it will move you in more ways than one), and oh yeah, did I mention the award-winning food?
Ultimately, the remote location enables you to take time for yourself, a partner or creative work - without diversions. “This is why we don’t have televisions in the rooms” says one of the owners Chicco Tatriele. “We have enough screen time; the focus is on reconnecting with your authentic self.” No matter which direction you look in, everything is alive - in turn, you become more alive and peaceful.
