Hatha yoga masters, local spirit healers and ancient herbal remedies
With a reputation for beautiful landscapes and proven traditional wellness therapies, travellers are flocking to the island paradise of Bali to discover the secrets behind a balanced lifestyle. Sens Asia Travel welcomes these travellers and shares it’s exclusive knowledge of authentic treatments, traditional therapies and unique sensory experiences which contribute towards a healthy mind, body and spirit.
“The Balinese approach to wellness is rounded; one cannot ignore the mind and focus purely on the body, to achieve a sense of piece within, one must please all three aspects of themselves.” Sens Asia agrees, and has scoured the Island of the Gods to introduce travellers to the lesser-known experiences which will relieve the stress and weight of daily life and restore a sense of harmony and balance.
Hatha Yoga is the first of these experiences, loosely translated as the yoga that brings union to opposites, with ‘Ha’ meaning Sun and ‘Tha’ meaning moon. This yoga specialisation returns peace to the body, easing its practitioners of muscle pain and stiffness whilst granting increased energy levels and improved circulation. Sens Asia offers its guests an opportunity to learn under Hatha masters and take their first step towards a balanced lifestyle. Traditional spa treatments are seen as an equally important aspect of a healthy lifestyle; Balinese therapies rely upon all-natural ingredients to restore the body to its natural state. Sens Asia leads travellers to the best of these treatments including 90 minute red rice ritual body scrub and 60 minute raw honey facial.
Wellness in Bali goes far beyond yoga disciplines and natural spa treatments; it is a fundamental part of Balinese life, with rural village spirit healers playing an important role in health alongside modern healthcare. Sens Asia guides its guests to the home-village of a tour guide to meet the local village healer, known as the ‘Balian’. These incredible individuals mix herbal remedies, create magical protective drawings and communicate with Hindu deities in a trance-like state. Take the opportunity to meet with the Balian, to learn about his life, his healing and why the locals are drawn to him.
Continue your wellness journey through Bali with a pilgrimage through the mountains to a traditional Balinese village, open your mind as you pass beautiful all-natural rice paddies with local farmers going about their business and experience first-hand how a typical Balinese family lives. This return to a natural, simplistic lifestyle gives one the opportunity to shed the complexities of modern life and return the mind and spirit to its natural peaceful state.
Complete your journey towards tranquillity by visiting Tirta Sudamala, an astounding ancient water temple originating from natural springs in the vicinity of a sacred tree. Shower under the holy waters of Tirta Sudamala, believed to eliminate diseases and cleanse the spirit, then receive a blessing of good will and fortune from the priests of the temple. Take the time for yourself and reflect upon the magical world of Bali and the secrets of balance and wellness you have discovered.
Sens Asia shows visitors an undiscovered world and reveals ancient secrets of wellness and natural health hidden throughout the tropical paradise that is Bali. Travelers enjoy unforgettable sense-based experiences and authentic journeys through a rural and spiritual world.
