Canang What? Canang Sari

There is nothing like the captivating island of Bali. The first time I was there, I was totally blown away by its people, culture, food and lifestyle. Ubud is in the middle of nature; surrounded by rice terraces and thick jungle. As the sun rises at Villa Tanah Shanti, the jungle becomes alive with birds and insects singing you back to this earthly realm. The air is filled with magic and you’ll learn early on that spirituality is an integral piece of Balinese culture. You won’t go far without seeing a small square or round palm leaf offering filled with flowers and rice, Canang Sari, on the streets. The phrase “Canang Sari” is derived from the Balinese words sari means essence and canang means a small palm-leaf basket. Canang Sari is the symbol of gratitude and…

Water Purification Ceremony

As a profound tool for healing, water purification ceremonies are held periodically throughout training at the most well-known and sacred temples on the entire island. These ceremonies give trainees a deeper understanding of the magical mysteries of Balinese spirituality that represent healing, love, and transformation. After putting on your sarong gifted to you by alchemy of yoga, you will be escorted for a guided tour of the peaceful and ancient site, where you will learn the history of these sacred grounds. Then the ceremony will be conducted by a Mangku (Balinese Priest). While sitting in meditation the priest will prepare some holy water in a vase with flowers and incense while chanting mantras in ancient Sanskrit. Following the mantras, you will be invited to receive a holy water cleansing as…

A Traditional Balinese Dinner!

One of our favorites evenings throughout training is visiting Agung’s ancestral home to learn about the meaning behind the layout and overall design of a traditional Balinese home. You’ll also learn how to make traditional Balinese offerings! We’ll enjoy an incredibly generous dinner buffet with a private traditional Balinese dance performance – a dance-drama that represent stories expressed through elegant movements detailed all the way into the gestures of eyes, fingers, head and hands. These mudras are learned early as Balinese children are taught to dance with their hands even before they can walk! In December 2015 UNESCO recognized 3 forms of Balinese Dance as “intangible cultural heritage.” This is sacred moving meditation at its finest.In this dance tradition the practice is an offering to ask protection from the gods and…

Three Reasons Why Yoga Teacher Training Changes Your Life

1.  TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS FASTER Something extraordinary happens while in a yoga teacher training program that breaks the bonds of ordinary awareness and expands the consciousness of each individual to a level that would otherwise would have taken years of ordinary living to attain.  This acceleration of evolution is mystical, meaning that the explanation of the change is beyond logic and reason.  The term from quantum physics,“quantum leap”, comes to mind.  A quantum leap means “a phenomena where an electron orbiting the nucleus of an atom changes its position without having traversed the space between its old and new orbit and without taking any time to do so.  As scientifically verifiable as this phenomenonis, it is also on the order of a miracle, for science has no explanation how this effect happens.”   This…

What habits are you strengthening​?

We all form habits as we go through life. Yoga teaches us that even our good habits keep us from growing spiritually. This is because habits are by definition an attachment to a pattern of behavior, or a form of dependence. So a key principle of yoga is to break our both our mental and physical attachments. This includes not just our attachments to material objects (like needing chocolate to be happy), but also attachments to only seeing things in one way or repeating the same thoughts over and over expecting a different result, which by the way is the textbook definition of insanity. Yoga gives us a chance to examine our behavioral patterns and realize that our habits, even the good ones, keep us stuck. Only then can we…
