For atleast one hour a day at Sunrise Yoga i can be in tune with my heart, flow with my body and quieten my mind then afterwards enjoy the company of some beautiful fellow yogis. To me this is bliss πŸ™ #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #yogacanggu #canggubali #yogabali #yoga #desaseni #desaseniyoga #yougacanggu #yogabarn #yogabarnubud #yogasydney #yogabyronbay #internationalyogaday #yogaubud
In the spirit of celebrating all things yoga on this international yoga day when I'm In Bali I love doing my own mini retreats, two days of cleansing, detox, yoga, healing and organic food πŸ™ giving myself permission to stop and replenish my mind, body and soul πŸŒ±πŸ¦‹πŸ₯‘ From Lygner to Yin Yoga classes the Tibetan Bowl Meditation is always a fave @theyogabarn in Ubud. This utilizes the ancient sounds of singing bowls to transport you into a medative state. Yogis lay face up with their heads facing the centre of the room. Swami calmy sits and walks around the room with different sounds, bringing them close to your head and ears of each person then back to the front of the room. The sound is like having music bounce from one ear to the other like when your headphones bug out. @theyogabarn @denisepayneyoga #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #yoga #ubudyoga #baliyoga #theyogabarn #namaste #ubud #meditation #balimeditation #internationalyogaday #ubudyoga
Happy International Yoga Day yogis from some of my favorite places around the world to practice πŸ™πŸ’–πŸƒ Today the world celebrates International Day of Yoga, celebrated annually on 21 June since its inception in 2015. Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word β€˜yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Yoga is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity. From Byron Bay to Sydney, My local these days is the beautiful Desa Seni in Canggu and a sunrise yoga flow with Carlotta is the perfect way to start the day. Surrounded by the beautiful gardens I can't wait to start my yoga teacher training here in September πŸ™πŸŒ±πŸŒ³πŸ’– @desaseni_avillageresort @_carlotta_castangia #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #yogacanggu #canggubali #yogabali #yoga #desaseni #desaseniyoga #yougacanggu #yogabarn #yogabarnubud #yogasydney #yogabyronbay #internationalyogaday #yogaubud
Today on Galungan Day We drove the Backstreets of Bali on our scooters and it was just a pleasure, riding through the traditional towns, leafy green streets and all the decorations hanging overthe roads.. It just made me feel all kinds of positive vibes Selemat hari raya Galungan dan Kuningan πŸ™ #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #binginbali #GalunganDay #Galungan #Galunganbali
On the lead up to Galungan Day all the the streets are lined with these beautiful long ornamental bamboo poles called Panjor. It takes a few men to actually erect these as they are quite heavy and intricately decorated. If you look closely they have individual trinkets and detailed paintings, naturally curved at the top and made out of harvest items such as rice, fruits, coconuts and coconut leaves. Traditionally, Galungan day sees the slaughtering of pigs for communal feasts, as well as baking traditional rice cakes. #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #binginbali #GalunganDay #Galungan #Galunganbali
Galungan Day πŸ™ Today in Bali the Hindu community celebrate the day of Galungan, which commemorates the triumph of Dharma over Adharma, or good against evil. On this day the Balinese welcome the spirits of deceased relatives who come to visit earth during this time. Businesses close down and everyone puts on their devine traditional dress to spend time with family. It's kinda like Christmas Day. #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #binginbali #GalunganDay #Galungan #Galunganbali

Selamat Pagi Bali β˜€ happy new near. The first thing I noticed when I walked out of my hotel room this morning was the noise difference compared to yesterdays silence for Nyepi Day. 6am this morning the silence curfew was lifted and Immediately motorbikes flying down the street inhabiited my peaceful atmosphere, can't say I missed it really. Because there wasn't a single lights on in Bali, last night was one of the most magnificent displays of stars I've ever seen in which when the photos come through I'll start to share but no photo could have taken would have done it justice so that moment was just for me. My first shooting 🌟 OMG πŸ™ Coming up-to the rooftop pewel and seeing Mt Agung clearly and the stunning day Canggu has put on for my day off well sharing is caring. Hopefully see you in. Bali soon πŸ™ #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #nyepi #baliceremony #MelastiCeremony #balioffering #hinduceremony #silentday #baliculture #ogohogoh #ogoh #nyepi2018 #nyepiday #canggu
Observed from 6am on the 17th March until 6am the next morning, Nyepi day has many restrictions in place. All lights must be kept low if not off which provides for a star filled sky unlike any other. No working so we have three days off yippee. No entertainment which means no tv, loud music and they are tossing up weather or not to turn off mobile data, no Wifi which I now hear has been confirmed. No traveling so the airport is closed and the streets are empty so the only people to be seen outdoors are the polisi, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed and, for some, no talking or eating at all. As we are confined to the grounds in which we live for Nyepi Day I checked into a hotel with a rooftop pool with ocean views and resturant that has an amaaaaaaazing breaky buffet. That way I get the most out of my day without having to sit inside as those that know me know Im not great at sitting still wanting to get out and see the world in which we live. All lights were turned off here at the hotel and throughout Bali, we actually needed the tourch on our phones to walk around the hotel and Usually the hills are glistening with lights from homes and cars there's music and noise from scooters but other than the chatty Cathy's who've been at the pewel drinking all day cuz there was nothing else to do whilst being in lock down πŸ˜‚ it is complete silence and beauty. can't wait for the star filled sky tonight with no interference from city lights. Selamat Hari Raya Nyepi πŸ™..... . . #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #nyepi #baliceremony #MelastiCeremony #balioffering #hinduceremony #silentday #baliculture #ogohogoh #ogoh #nyepi2018 #nyepiday #balisunset
Nyepi celebrations go for three days here in Bali and it's absolutely something to be apart of. Nyepi is a Balinese "Day of Silence" that is commemorated every year, this year falling on March 17. It’s a Hindu celebration mainly celebrated in Bali, which calls for a public holiday in Indonesia as it’s a day of silence, fasting and meditation for the Balinese. Day one, the day before Nyepi Ogoh Ogohs are paraded down the streets of Bali which traditionally is the purification of the natural environment of any spiritual pollutants emitted from the activities of living beings. In the afternoon around 4pm they start bringing out the Ogoh Ogohs onto the street before the parade so I went on a hunt around Canggu on my scooter. Super fun. About 6pm out the come for the parade from the littlest of kidlets holding up their mini Ogoh Ogoh to the big scary ones where they have a guy dedicated to lifting the powerlines as they move through the street. That struggle is definitely real yo. Patiently waiting the crowd lines the streets with their bintangs in hand and as the Ogoh Ogohs are paraded we follow behind. This happens all over Bali. The towns have then been purified of bad spirits and off we go into lock down for nyepi day....... . . #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #nyepi #baliceremony #MelastiCeremony #balioffering #hinduceremony #silentday #baliculture #ogohogoh #ogoh #nyepi2018 #nyepiday #canggu
This Stylin kid stole my heart though πŸ’–πŸ’– Amongst the beauty that was today's Melasti Ceremony, the biggest purification rituals by parading Hindu's God symbols procession to the sea, with tears streaming down my face and feeling my heart beating with love I felt compelled to sit and be still in a moment of gratitude myself. I sat a little bit over from the hundreds of people in the ceremony out of respect and didn't have my own offering to give but a moment to connect with the higher, universe, spirit, angels, ancestors was obviously a moment that needed to be had. I'm greatful for every bit of this blessed life πŸ™ #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #nyepi #baliceremony #MelastiCeremony #balioffering #hinduceremony #silentday #baliculture

My morning walk in Seminyak I discovered today is Melasti Ceremony for Balinese Hindu. Melasti Ceremony is the biggest purification rituals by parading Hindu's God symbols procession to the sea. It's held 3 days before the Silent Day or Nyepi Day. Melasti ceremony is held on the edge of the beach with the aim to purify oneself of all the bad things in the past and throw it to the ocean. In Hindu belief, the source of water are considered as the source of life. #soulsistaabroad #bali #balilove #Baliparadise #bali 🌴 #balinesegoodness #balitravel #beautifulbali #solotraveller #hippychick #yogi #wanderlust #explore #travel #islandlife #sunshineonmyface #baliocean #balisurf #nyepi #baliceremony #MelastiCeremony #balioffering #hinduceremony #silentday #baliculture
