Samadi March Happenings


Samadi March Happenings

Hi friends!

Rainy season is coming to an end in Bali and the spring equinox begins March 19th! This represents the rebirth of all life on earth as if nature was asleep and our surroundings have given birth to an overabundance of existence! During this time it’s important to keep your immune system in good health as you may be more compromised to nature blossoming’s. There are many things you can do to maintain your health as the season changes and we have many exciting new happenings at Samadi to help support you in your growth.

Breathing is the first thing we do when we are born and the last thing we do before we die, but how much importance do we give to breathing? We can stay alive for long periods without eating, drinking or sleeping, but if we cannot breathe, we die
within a matter of minutes.

Unfortunately, for most of us, we don’t think twice about our pattern of breathing because it’s unconscious. We breath on average 20,000 times a day and half a billion breathes in an average life time, but why is breathing
consciously so important?

Samadi Wear | Behind the Scenes


Meet Dani the Tailor of Samad Wear.  Dani has been the number one tailor for SamadiWear right from the beginning.  He was born and raised in Java and has been working as a Tailor for 16 years. He was first taught how to stitch in his village by his uncle and after having studied for four months in an official tailor school.  Soon after he found a job that required him to stitch t-shirts.  Samadi has been using Dani now for the last five years and we are his number one client.  Dani is married and has a two year old daughter.  His wife is also helping him in the production and keeping Dani happy and healthy. His dream of the future is to one day have his own successful clothing line to expand his creativity skills as a tailor.

What is Samadi Wear?

Hari Raya Nyepi 2019!


Nyepi, Bali’s New Year, a day of silence and self-reflection. Nyepi begins on Thursday, March 7th at 6am and ends Friday March 8th at 6am.

Recognized as a very special day for the Balinese, it is a time for silence, self reflection, fasting and going deep inside oneself to reflect on the past year. All Balinese and foreigners will not be able to leave their home to allow quietness with their loved ones and family members. All shops, ATM’s, stores, beaches and streets are closed and electricity should be used minimally. During these hours no one should leave their home. There should be no work, traffic or pleasure and the community security will be on patrol to ensure everyone is in compliance and not outside on the streets.

Silent Day follows to chase away malevolent forces as the surrounding villages craft huge mache statues, with massive eyes and sharp teeth representing evil spirits. Each village works on their own creation which are paraded through the streets, accompanied by traditional live music symbolizing the burning of your own inner demons as well chasing bad spirits away.

If you’re traveling in Bali during Nyepi you won’t be able to leave your place of stay and you’ll be expected to keep the noise down and lights off, even if you choose not to participate total silence. Let’s enjoy this special day and take sometime to be with our friends, family, loved ones and more importantly, yourself.

Samadi Hours: 
March 7 – Closed All Day
March 8 – All Samadi classes and events open again although there
is no Ashtanga Mysore class.

Women’s Circle

Self Healing is Self Love!

This class has been extended to two hours by request! A self healing and self loving place for women to come together with Yoga, Breathwork, Yoni Love, Dance and much more to explore the body, mind and energy system. This is a place of play and sensuality as well as being a sacred vessel for healing and transformation.

Within each of us is the innate and natural ability to heal ourselves. As we access and surrender to our own inner power we learn to understand how energy moves in the body and how we can use it to unlock stored trauma and release what no longer serves us. In this space low vibrational energy can be transformed into a higher frequency where we experience pleasure, bliss and ecstasy.

The Art of Self-Love

Love and Celebrate Yourself Unconditionally

Allow yourself to feel home in a safety of your own embrace. Let go of your habitual self-judgment, sense of lack, resentment, and embarrassment. Explore your inner and outer space. Open yourself to the experience of moving with pleasure, breathing with joy, being vulnerable and simultaneously invincible. Play, experiment, and nourish your body and heart with mysterious tenderness of a touch of a stranger. 
In this experiential workshop, you will dive into the exploration of what self-love means to you. You will be introduced to ancient and contemporary techniques that emphasize healing and cathartic potential of movement, touch, and play— African Healing Dance, somatic awareness exercises, bodypercussion, Touch Therapy, etc. 
Through intuitive movementand breaththat feel good, soothing touch that heals the wounds of the heart, and joyful play that liberates the spirit, we create safe conditions for a deep emotional “cleansing”, and release psychosomatic tension in a gentle, fluid and non-aggressive manner. We awaken what is neglected and atrophied, love and nurture ourselves and feel happy.

FREE Movie Night

Showing Kanyini

Happening Wednesdays every two weeks in the Matahari Shala starting at 19:30!

This documentary is based on the remarkable life and philosophy of Bob Randall, an elder of the Yankunytjatjara people of Uluru in Central Australia. The movie explores his idyllic early life, shattered when he is taken from his family as one of the ‘Stolen Generation’, and his journey since then. ‘Uncle Bob’ also explores the reasons for the tragic problems in many Australian Aboriginal communities today. While there is sadness and desperation, the film finishes with a sense of hope. Archival footage from the very early days of white contact with indigenous peoples is skilfully interwoven into the film.
