Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a new Yoga retreat organized by Mimi for participants from all over Australia. A week of intensive practice combining physical exercises and meditation. Which didn’t prevent the group from also having a good time, as evidenced by their last evening in front of a wood fire on the beach!

Bali is often mentioned in guidebooks as a great place to practice yoga. Anyone who has visited Bali can only confirm this opinion. Because of its culture, its exceptional nature and the three pillars of its philosophy (harmony with the gods, nature and between humans) Bali is indeed a privileged place for yoga. And Dajuma is no exception to the rule: with its tropical park and its atmosphere of serenity between heaven and earth, its spa and shala equipment, and its caring full-time yogini Tini, Dajuma offers its clients daily sessions that invigorate the body and soul. Pictured is an amateur female in action, a member of the local Novri Yoga community. Beginners as well as experienced practitioners are welcome!
Recently, we had the pleasure to host a group of yoga sent by our partner and on Yoga specialized German tour operator, Yoga Travel and Friends (www.yogatravel-friends.de) which is used to send a lot of yoga groups to Bali for round trips, retreats and individual tours.
The group from Munich, Germany, called Djaya Yoga & Soundhealing stayed for 4 nights, practiced a combination of Yin Yoga and Sound Healing as well as Yin Yang Yoga and meditation twice a day at our yoga shala overlooking the Indian Ocean. Under the lead of Tanja Seehofer (Yoga Teacher) and Yann Kuhlmann (Musician) 8 members of the group enjoyed their activities. Beside practicing the yoga, they also enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of Dajuma by doing massages, beauty treatments, pool and beach activities or even just laying on the hammock or long chair under the sun. In the end of their stay, they really enjoyed the entertainment night with Balinese music and dances, everybody was very happy some of the participants also decided to extend their stay with us. We hope to see you back next year! Meanwhile enjoy the festive season and a beautiful end of year celebrations.
Yoga is a spiritual form of science that originated in ancient provinces of India. Popularly practiced by sages ans saints, the word « yoga » comes from the ancient Sanskrit « yog » which means “to harness with”. Yoga enables us to join our soul to immortal divinity and helps us to entrust the control over our physical and mental health. With a strong spiritual and meditative core, yoga offers a variety of physical exercises that lead to both physical and psychological well-being. The idea of 21 June as the yoga day was first proposed by India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014. Its unique environment makes Puri Dajuma a very special place for revitalisation and yoga practice, with a full time yoga teacher at disposal. Choice of great ocean view atmospheres: the yoga shala on top of the property, the lawn by the beach and the large trees shadow, the volcano rocky beach itself… On the picture, 22 guests, who celebrated the Yoga day in Dajuma, could experience these opportunities for a week, deeply breathing by the sea, and lulled by the waves sound on the cape.
Recently, Dajuma had the great pleasure of hosting a group from Romania. Around the organizers, Ruxandra, Ciprian (www.masterymeditationretreats.com), and Hindu priests from Bali, more than fourty participants initiated themselves to the practice of yoga and meditation according to the 3 principles of Tri Hita Karana, the famous traditional philosophy of Bali: harmony with the Gods, harmony with nature and harmony between humans. A great moment of sharing, very symbolic in this beginning of the year!
Located in the West part of Bali, renowned for its authenticity and tranquility, Puri Dajuma is the ideal place where to placate and revigorate your body and soul by practicing yoga, meditation or any other ways you prefer.
Last week we welcomed 2 yoga groups. The first one from Austria, driven by Monika, came with 8 members for the fourth time since 2015. They practiced yoga twice every day (morning & afternoon). We also arranged special “Melukat” / Water Blessing Ceremony as their special request.
The second group was Elitsa’s group from Bulgaria, with 19 participant for their first time in Dajuma. They did yoga once a day, and enjoyed a lot our massages at our spa during their spare time. For other groups who would like to come, we are pleased to offer specific arrangements such as ceremonies, special decorations, events, tours, etc.).
Practicing yoga at Dajuma is increasingly popular among our guests. Under the leadership of our yogi Tini, this discipline of body and mind can be practiced in multiple places in our resort: in our Baruna hall with its breathtaking view of the ocean, but also on our new pool deck Bendega or in the gardens bordering the beach. Another possibility consists in practicing it from its own room as shown by Monika on this picture.
Would you like to breath deeply, change your mind, have some exercise on a regular basis? Puri Dajuma allows all that with a choice of venues, or in natural and quiet places.
Besides the every-day yoga session which usually takes place in the Baruna hall with an overhanging view of the ocean, our guest Karin on the picture, found her own atmosphere for meditation.
