This is the time of year where we reflect on gratitude. A time for spiritual harvest to feast and digest on the rich abundance we have in our hearts instead of wanting more. In the state of gratitude we come to a peaceful place of sharing, caring for one another and nourishing ourselves. Allow this coming holiday season to be the practice of nourishment we seek to desire that serves as an antidote to life’s buzzing activities.
December invites us to share a space for self nourishment and we would be honored to have you with us during this holiday season. Please visit our events for December workshops and happenings and don’t forget to check out our up and coming Yoga Immersions Courses beginning December 27th with Authorized Ashtanga Teacher and Co-Owner of Samadi, Damien de Bastier. Light & love, The Samadi Team

The Response: How Puerto Ricans Are Restoring Power to the People
In the wake of Hurricane Maria, a quiet revolution has been percolating on the island of Puerto Rico. What began as an impromptu community kitchen meant to help feed survivors in the town of Caguas quickly grew into an island-wide network of mutual aid centers (Centros de Apoyo Mutuo) with the ultimate goal to restore power — both electric and civic — to the people.
Community Talk – Wednesday, 18th December
With The Bali Street Mums Project (Ibu Ibu)
Bali Street Mums Project works with mothers and children who have been forced to beg, due to poverty, on the urban streets of Kuta and Denpasar. The mother will usually hide, while their children are forced to run up to cars stopped at the traffic lights, to beg for money. They also work with Mothers who live at the rubbish dump in Denpasar and pick through the rubbish piles looking for recyclables to sell.
Are you looking for a style of yoga to improve your body posture, breath control and reduce stress? Vinyasa yoga focuses on linking one’s breath with a specific movement while transitioning between each pose resulting in an unbroken state of mental focus and calm. It is essentially a moving meditation bringing about a new state of awareness that is taught to be carried with you throughout your day. Although it is a popular style of yoga these days, our teachers have trained extensively within the roots of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system to give you a deep and complete practice.
December 7th marks Saraswati, a celebration dedicated to Goddess Saraswati to commemorate the descent of knowledge. Celebration of Saraswati is set forth on palm leaves; a guideline for the order of ceremonies in Bali based on the lunar system. This is part of a cycle in the Javanese and Balinese calendar lasting for one week out of the 210 day calendar. A tribute of gratitude for her who has graced Bali with her knowledge.
Yoga Immersion with Damien de Bastier Module 1: December 27- 31, 2019
Module 2: January 3- 7, 2020
The Samadi Yoga Academy is the latest development at Samadi and will include a variety of stand-alone courses, a student training, a teacher training and a mentoring program for seasoned teachers. We have developed a curriculum of yogic studies designed to support you in deepening your understanding and practice of yoga providing a wholesome and comprehensive overview of what yoga has to offer exploring the anatomy of your mind and the philosophy of your body.
These courses are organized around 6 modules of 50 hours each to be completed over 2-3 years. Each module can be taken separately as a stand-alone continuing education or as part of the student training program which is the main requisite for training as a teacher with Samadi.
Each module is 6 days long and comprises yoga practice, teachings in yoga philosophy and psychology, embodied anatomy and integrative explorations.
Balinese gamelan is often heard in secular performances for entertainment and a central part of religious and spiritual life in Bali. A village temple celebration or individual life-cycle ritual would be literally incomplete without certain types of prescribed music and dance required to set the stage for otherworldly spirits to descend and provide a meditative atmosphere for prayer so that people are receptive to spiritual and religious thoughts and feelings.

Sound Healing itself offers a new way to find your ‘inner-net’, an easy way to drop into meditation and ease flying thoughts. This type of modality actually creates frequencies to rewrite new brainwaves from your normal beta state (normal mind) to the theta state (relaxed conscious mind) and can even throw you into a deep hole of serious mediation called delta where the true healing occurs without you even knowing about it!
Saturday the 14th of December we open doors for all of you wanting to do a spring clean of unwanted belongings, clothes, toys, books, machinery, kitchen tools, bicycles etc.
