I met Guru Made Sumantra when I signed up for my own Yoga Teacher Training here in Ubud. What convinced me initially was the smile and charm of both the guru and his assistant teacher, Trimutri. Their openness and friendly relaxed attitude embodied what I wanted to achieve and pass on to others in my own yoga practice, as well as the spirit of this island that has kept me happily living here for the past 12 years.
The next surprise was the yoga itself. In the Markandeya system, yoga asana is inseparable from meditation and healing. Each pose focuses on interacting with a different chakra, healing a specific part of the body, or building up natural energy from the environment. Different types of energies are used, radiating from the Sun, Moon, or Stars. Through this system a healing science is revealed, tying in energy lines, physical anatomy, visualisations, the chakras, internal organs, and traditional Balinese philosophy.
As the true beauty of the system was revealed to me, I was hooked.
The effect of this yoga is powerful and immediate, and after completing my I training I wanted to help bring its potential to more people. Now I help organize teacher trainings every month as I further my own study in this vast system, which is not available anywhere else in the world.
