Despite my limited experience with toga, I thought the 2 hour combination sounded really good and signed up for this last Friday! While there are lots of villas around Seminyak, the resort was easy to find and with all the bamboo trees lining the driveway, I sort of felt like I was entering a different world...
To start, my teacher Pak Kenbar was really patient with me and made sure to mix and match poses such that I felt comfortable and kept my breathing in mind. Having taken lots of group yoga classes, it was amazing having my own private teacher to correct my alignment and explain why I should do things a certain way. He actually pointed out something I had never considered before - that part of why it's important to have straight lines anda good posture is because Yoga is an ART, and art needs to look good! :) It was clear from my interaction with him that Pak Kenbar has years of experience teaching newbies like me. Apparently he's been the resident teacher at places like the Four Seasons and Como Shambala (he's taught Cindy Crawford too!) so I felt like I was in very good hands.
Anyway, after my yoga class, it was just a short walk over to my spa treatment room. Well, the room was actually more like a HOUSE for 2 persons! haha. Since it was just me that day, I had my own therapist Gina, who was friendly and patient throughout my jade stone massage. She always asked me if the pressure was ok and the long strokes she applied totally made me want to drift off into another place. Love their outdoor shower by the way.
After my treatment, I sat in their small restaurant for a lovely 2 course menu of vegetarian dishes (it's nice and quiet since they only have 12 rooms or something like that). By the way, I am not vegetarian by any means but figured ONE meal without meat wouldn't kill me haha. I was definitely pleasantly surprised by their awesome creamy potato and leek soup (I'd go back just for that vichyssoise!!). Definitely order that when you go and don't forget to their welcome drink with cucumber and lime which was super refreshing!
All in all, I would recommend this wellness experience to couples or solo travellers looking to zen out in Seminyak. Free transport is provided and the staff there are really nice and will invite you to hang out by their main pool after you are done to just relax (if only I had brought a book!!). Special thanks to Gina who also found my clothes and packed them for me when I left them in the closet!!! Apparently I was too happy to notice ;)
