One Day Without Shoes Bali Style

Yogi’s gather for One Day Without Shoes

Once upon a time a young entrepreneur named Blake MyCoskie took a life changing trip to Argentina, where he witnessed how devastating it was for youngsters to go without shoes. Not only did they suffer from debilitating diseases but many schools refused them an education unless they came to school wearing shoes. Determined to do something about this, Blake (who knew nothing of the fashion industry) set up his shoe company TOM’s and declared that for every pair of shoes purchased, TOM’s would give away a pair to a child in need. That was 6 years ago and over 1 million pairs of shoes given away later (by Sept 2010).

What’s a Yogathon? 12 hours of funding raising hilarity!

 

Notes post a 12-hour Yogathon at Desa Seni resort in Bali. Just how much yoga, meditation and kirtan can you fit into one day? I was almost levitating. I’m saying it again, that was simply the most fun way to raise money for Aids Awareness ever! I know I said that last year but you try toning your act down after you’ve practiced Kundalini, Hatha and downright Hilarious Yoga (care of the astonishly talented Cherie Rae, we love a gal who knows how to have everyone in happy baby and belly laughing!).

The gift that keeps on giving

 

Central to our business plan for Soul Sanctuaries is a giving program called ‘Give a Little Soul a Sanctuary’. We believe that it will be the icing on the cake if somebody came to partake in one of our health programs or wellness retreats and not only helped themselves but also benefited someone in need too. A portion of each participants payment will go direct to a child in need. You’ll be able to see how children have benefited in our website widget and our Giving Reports as well as Social Media updates.

Spend a moment to recall the last time you helped someone in need, whether donating funds, time or advice. How did you feel afterwards? Pretty damn good eh. That feeling of universality and love is just like the gift that keeps on giving. Lets see what the guru’s say about this…

A seaside sound meditation

Soul Sanctuaries will offer world weary individuals the opportunity to meet their inner selves, rejuvenate, detox or simply pamper in luxurious surroundings. We think that, if your budget affords it, you don’t have to deny yourself to meet yourself.Think yoga and meditation with living food and personalized guidance with the additional benefits of Egyptian cotton sheets.

We want to be able to tell our clients that we’ve personally experienced all our wellness retreats. Authenticity is key. Sometimes locations fall short but this weekend we experienced the most magical sanctuary imaginable. Read on… Read More

Kundalini Yoga all your woes away?

This morning I headed off to my regular Kundalini class in Bali, which always makes me feel balanced and creative afterwards. Have to say I wasn’t feeling too great beforehand (hormonal chaos). If you’ve been to a Kundalini class before you’ll probably have experienced feeling physically exhausted during repetitive movements, but really pushing yourself beyond your preconceived limits. Well, after moving rapidly, breathing in sync and Sat Nam-ing my way through the class, I later totally lost my cool at the bank… not very Om to say the least!
