DESA SENI BALI | Celebration of Life
Posted on March 19, 2014
Yoga in Bali – Desa Seni – Yogathon
Desa Seni held their fourth annual ‘Celebration of Life’ 12 hour yogathon this last Sunday in Canggu Bali. The event was organised with precision and their staff worked tirelessly to keep the sanctuary that is Desa Seni tidy, with never-ending mountains of coconuts being macheted open, and table-laden bowls of healthy food offered at lunchtime..
The 200,000 rp entry was to raise funds for Ayo Kita Bicara HIV/AIDS and the offerings were aplenty with the non-stop yoga classes, music, dance, art, fashion parades and wine tasting by Plaga. With an incredible line up of yoga teachers & music on hand to keep the masses entertained, it was an epic day! There was an abundance of vibrant flags and streamers strung up around the gorgeous grounds, creating a festive atmosphere that went on until late, with a Bollywood Party to close the event. This is a warm-up to the Bali Spirit Festival that is held annually and kicks off today in Ubud. Days more of Yoga and celebrations including some International and local music along with Australia’s own Xavier Rudd. Xavier will also be performing live at Uluwatu cliffs on March 26th with proceeds to benefit The Project Clean Uluwatu.
We could not recommend more highly a few nights stay or drop-in yoga class at Desa Seni when next you are visiting Bali. Located in Canggu, there are also great surfing beaches and boutique shopping nearby. For more information visit their website or facebook
