Program

What style is Shivakali yoga?

Shivakali yoga teaches an alignment-based Vinyasa flow practice. Culminating in restorative postures, meditation, and pranayama, the practice serves first to awaken the body and break-up stuck energy, and then to soften the mind and nurture your inner being. Uniting the masculine plus feminine aspects of practice; you find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally.

Course program

The Shivakali Yoga elemental Tantra yoga teacher training approaches the ancient sciences of yoga and Tantra through a course of the five elements. This 300-hour yoga teacher training is the first of it's kind.

Earth element

In the earth element, you will practice Din Acharya and daily Ayurvedic self-care as you rise with the sun. You will learn about grounding asana practice, Restorative, Yin, and classical Tantric asanas. Guided massage practices will be offered and connection to the earth as found in classical yogic texts plus other traditions.

Water element

During the water element, you still the waters of the mind with Buddhist yogas and meditation instruction from the Nyingma tradition. Enjoy daily practice of Vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on the lunar quality and classical surya namaskar, deepening your knowledge of these asanas. And you will expand your practices of inversions learning how to float through daily asana classes and posture clinics with grace.

Fire element

As you proceed into the fire element, you will begin the day at sunrise with Agni Hotra, classical yogic fire ceremony. You will learn to perform yogic fire rituals, study the bandhas and Kumbhaka practices of yoga, and cultivate inner heat. Your yoga will focus on strength and core which learns the art of power Vinyasa sequencing and core work in a way that is aligned with classical yogic principles, while strengthening our practice of arm balances as well.

Air element

Journeying into the air element, you will rise with the practices of Sri Vidya, ascending into Shakta Tantra. Students receive instruction in daily practices of the Kalavahana, a tantric empowerment ritual. Further, you will learn to draw the Sri Yantra, learn about the deities contained inside this ancient diagram, and study the history of this Goddess tantra tradition. You will master the art of intuitive teaching, learning how to teach or practice yoga from a place of inspiration, and incorporate other forms of sacred movement into your classes.

Space element

Woven throughout the course is the element of space, during which time you will look encounter the poetry of Kabir, meditate on emptiness, and read from the Tao Te Ching.

Things to do (optional)

Visit Tirta Empul - Tampak Siring Holy Water Temple

The Tirta Empul is otherwise known as the Tampak Siring temple and is a holy spring water temple situated in the Tampak Siring Village in the Gianyar regency about 40 kilometers east of the center of Denpasar. The trip to Tirta Empul is no exception and is located on a hill where it has been set for centuries encircled by the hill. Founded by the first president and changed to its current name from the original names of Tirta Ri air Humpul which mean the emerging water or holy pool and Petirthan which means water emerging from the land. Tirta Empul is about an hours drive from the airport and is even closer if you are staying in Sanur. The trip is also excellent, if not better if you are coming from Ubud.

The holy spring itself is set into the mountain and now has a temple built around the natural opening meaning the water that emerges from the ground is the center piece of the Temple. The Tirta Empul is unlike any of the other temples for this reason and has one of the oldest histories of all the temples in Bali. It is said that it was first deemed holy in 882 by king Indrajayasinghawarmadewa who first began to develop the temple that you see today. The water was said to be the definitive creation as it was fresh, clean and was rising out of the ground itself. The understanding was that all of the water in the world originates from this source or at least that it was extremely important for the life of the island.

Join Bali Angels Day with Senang Hati Charity

Senang Hati is a Non-Government Organisation that works to build a foundation where society accepts, welcomes, and values the equal participation of people with physical challenges. The vision is to bring people with physical challenges out of isolation and into society. To build self-worth and provide programs that support their physical and health needs, as well as to teach skills that will assist people with differing abilities to become productive and work towards independence and self-sufficiency, where possible.

Try far-infrared sauna

Hundreds, even thousands of years ago, people turned to heat therapy as a source of healing. Sauna is one of the best ways to immediately soothe achy muscles and relaxes busy minds. Unlike traditional saunas that can be uncomfortably hot, far-infrared sauna uses light to create heat. They are a great alternative to the traditional sauna, especially for elderly and people with asthma, as it warms objects without warming the air between it and the object. It allows you to sweat without feeling the intense heat of a regular sauna.

The infrared rays enter the body and converts into energy which stimulates the body tissues. This helps the body to change fat cells into a sweat and resultantly a person loses fat and weight. You can burn 400 to 600 calories in just one 30 minute session. Other benefits are to help flush out toxins, improve metabolism, relaxes muscles and helps eliminate shoulder, neck, and back pain, speed up the healing process, improve blood circulation, relieves arthritis pain, boosts immune system, help relax and rejuvenate the body, and remove oil, dirt, makeup from clogged pores and improves skin problems like acne, rashes, and scars.
