Have you ever heard about the « WIM HOF METHOD » (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaMjhwFE1Zw)? We were very pleasantly surprised when, last week-ned, our good friend Alex, founder of BookGreener, offered to our guests a very interesting workshop about this method and the way to improve our breathing with a lot of positive consequences on our bodies (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BlKONskhK0). All participants were absolutely astonished by the outcome of the workshop: a really good feeling, most of them being able to double or even triple their breath capacity after only 30 mn exercising, up to 4’30” for one of them. But this « Better Breathing » step is just the beginning of a long and exciting story. Next step of the method consists in cold exposure by plunging your body into a cold bath, with even better positive effects on your body. We believe that this method will perfectly complement our wellness activities in our Spa. Why don’t you send your opinion about that by reacting to this blog? In any case, we will keep you posted! Cheers!

Last week we had the pleasure to welcome the monthly meeting of Bookgreener members which gathers hoteliers in Bali strongly engaged for environmental protection and sustainable tourism.
Every month, under the dynamic guidance of its founder Alex Tsuk, its members like to exchange experiences on various topics. This month, the topic was “How to communicate about Agung Volcano”. 3 internationally known lecturers from Canada (live), Island and Peru (via Skype) brought their experience of managing communication in similar situations of volcano eruptions. A very interesting day of work ponctutated in the middle by a delicious lunch prepared by our French Chef Paul. The day before, our Bookgreener friends were invited to visit some West Bali hidden treasures, its stunning rice fields, the jegog music, the absolutely unique new Green Cliff, Perancak and its beautiful buggies boats and finally the sea turtles conservatory. A nice moment of sharing!
Dajuma is proud to be part of the Bookgreener Refill Initiative (www.refillbali.com).
Thanks to Jeroen (firstname.lastname@example.org) who represents in Bali the company Nazava (www.nazava.com) specialised in water filters, Dajuma has now 3 water refill stations, one in each of our 3 restaurants, where our guests can refill for free their glass bottles with a pure filtered water. The water comes from a 40 meters deep well and is then filtered in a ceramic filter provided by Nazava. Because of its volcanic origin the water is rich in oligoelements and totally virgin of bacteria and other chemicals. Its quality is regularly checked by the Quantum Laboratory in Denpasar. Selamat minum (Cheers in Bahasa)!
Last month took place the gathering of the members of Bookgreener network in the beautiful place of Bali Eco Stay. Warmly welcome by its owner John and Alex founder of Bookgreener, 30 representatives of various eco-resorts and hotels in Bali were happy to meet and share experiences in terms of sustainable development practices. Created in 2014 by Alex Tsuk, Bookgreener is aimed at fostering sustainable practices in the accomodation industry. And the least we can say is that this noble goal has been more than achieved in less than 2 years with a lot of eco-friendly practices spread around the members of Bookgreener such as the recycling of plastic, the Bali refill program to save water, organic food and many other things. We are really happy and proud to be part of this original initiative. Thank you Alex and John!
