What can I say? I LOVE Bali. It is a beautiful island in the Asian-Pacific known as "The Island of the Gods," with vast contrasts from seemingly endless stretches of coastline along its beaches to its lush green rice fields.
Bali culture is unique and famous especially for its rich and vibrant arts. Various forms of dance and music have made Bali's arts and culture scene one of the most diverse in the world. Hinduism as the main religion is the major influence behind its development.
Music, drama, dance and costumes become a feast for the senses during temple festivities. Rites of passage at Balinese family households can almost be seen daily; celebrating the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. Special cultural dates and highlights also mark the calendar, through annual art festivals and local revelries that visitors should check out to make the most of their visit.
Though Bahasa Bali is the local language spoken in Bali, Bahasa Indonesia is the most common spoken language around the tourist areas.

There are a few simple rules of etiquette that can be applied that will show our respect for local culture. You can also look to your guides for help along the way.
Outright anger is to be avoided in Indonesia. Indonesians lose respect for people who do not control themselves. If for any reason you feel you have been mistreated, try to resolve the matter in an amicable way. The first step is to politely express your dissatisfaction. Usually your host will strive to accommodate your request. If this strategy fails, the next best thing is to ask your guide to handle the issue. Remember also that the speaking of English is not yet a widespread practice. A lot of the staff in hotels have a rather limited scope of understanding. In order to not lose face, they will say 'yes' to anything you ask although they may not have understood a word you said. Speak slowly using simple sentence structures, avoid using slang and make sure they truly understood what you wanted. Generally, the employees at reception are the most proficient in English, and you can always refer to them for help.
Religion is the soul of Indonesia; life rotates around religious ceremonies and temples, especially in Bali. You will see a drastic change in dress and customs between Bali and Java; one has a mixed Hindu/Buddhist approach to life where in Lombok and especially Java, Islam is predominant. Muslim women are not supposed to talk to or be seen in the presence of foreign men. You should also refrain from such gestures as putting your hand on somebody's shoulder and especially touching the head or taking them by the arm, if the person is of the opposite sex. A slight bow of the head to express gratefulness is a nice touch. You will notice that there is very little physical contact between men and women in public, even when married. However, friendship among members of the same gender is freely expressed.
Bali's tropical climate creates an environment with temperatures that do not fluctuate much from one month to the next. Because of this, the month of November sees average temperatures that are very similar to those for October. The average temperature in November is 27°C (81°F), while the average low is 23°C (73°F), and the average high is 31°C (88°F). The beginning of the month sees a mix of cloudy skies and sunny days, with a slight chance of rain. The average daily temperature is 27°C (81°F), which stays mostly the same for the entire month before cooling off just minimally by the end of November. The middle of the month sees more cloudy skies and rain than sunny days, and this trend continues through to the end of November as well. The lowest ever recorded temperature in Bali in November is 20°C (68°F), while the highest ever recorded temperature is 37°C (99°F).
The average daily sunshine in November is seven hours, which is a significant drop from the nine hours seen in October. November is the second month of the "wet season" in Bali, and thus, there is less sunshine this month. The amount of rain increases as well, as the average rainfall for November is 70mm (on par with totals from April), occurring over 13 days. The chance of seeing rain this month is relatively high, although storms are often short-lived.
Although there is an increased chance of rain, visitors should not avoid the beach, especially since the water is still at an enjoyable temperature. The average sea temperature this month is 27°C (81°F), which is very warm and good for any type of water activity.
After seeing the lowest humidity levels of the year for the past three months, these levels increase on average in November. The average humidity this month is 75%, which is on the uncomfortable side, especially paired with hot, rainy days.
The teaching staff have a number of excursions planned for the students during your time with us. Bali is home to a variety of wildlife which can be visited at Bali Safari and Marine Park.
There is also world-class surfing directly in front of Villa Puri Purnama and at nearby Keramas Beach. Plus, students can swim or go Surf Fishing directly in front of the Villa or rent a Cucukan Fishing Boat for deep water fishing!
The list of options doesn't stop there! There is horseback riding on the beach at Cucukan Beach; elephant trekking; white water rafting and quad bike riding at Bakas, 15 minutes north of Cucukan; world-class diving and snorkeling at Padangbai, 25 minutes north of Cucukan (can also be done at Sanur).
Ubud, known for it's night life and shopping, is only 25 minutes from Cucukan. They are host to world-class day spas, art galleries and restaurants and, of course, magical scenery.
Villa Puri Purnama is a luxury, beachfront villa situated on Cucukan's glittering black sand surf beach, only 18 minutes from Sanur and 950m from the famous Keramas Surf Beach. The breathtaking views afforded by this location span from the majestic Gunung Agung across the ocean to Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, over the rice paddies of Gianyar and even offer a glimpse of the sun setting over the Western reaches of Bali.
We'll be spending 28 fabulous days in the beautiful city of Bali enjoying the exotic culture, food, shopping, and the glamorous décor of our mystical surroundings at Villa Puri Puranama. Located right on the Cucukan Beach.
For sure you'll fall in love with Bali and will want to join us on our future yoga teacher training courses.
Let's get this straight right from the start – Indonesian food is simply delicious – perfect for our raw vegans, vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colorful cuisines in the world, and bursting with intense flavor. It is diverse, owing in large part to Indonesia's composition of approximately 6,000 islands, populated with over 300 ethnic groups. The variety of regional cuisines which exist are often based upon indigenous culture and foreign influences. As a result, Indonesia has over 5,350 traditional recipes. Indonesia's cuisine may include rice, noodle and soup dishes in modest local eateries, street-side snacks and top-dollar plates.
If you don't eat this or that – no worries – we are happy to accommodate any of your food preferences.
Swadhyaya Worldwide Yoga Retreats is happy to offer vegan and raw vegan options as well, including vegetable juices and smoothies. Even more reason to join us for your teacher training course.
We will also have one night on the town to experience the ubiquitous mouth-watering local flavor.

Mimi loves traveling and teaching. She loves teaching about yoga asana, anatomy and physiology and the yoga lifestyle – and she wants you to love them as much as she does.
It all started back in 2013 when she left pharmaceutical sales and went on a pilgrimage, walking across Spain, on el Camino de Santiago de Compostela.
That's when she went on her first transformational yoga teacher training experience in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. She has been dedicated ever since (after all, yoga totally changed her life).
She ended up receiving training in Hatha yoga, Vinyasa flow, and Ashtanga yoga. And would occasionally incorporate Tai Chi into her classes, drawing from several years of South Shaolin Goju Kung Fu training, once she started teaching her own classes.
For the past nine months, she taught yoga anatomy and physiology and yoga asana at Rishikesh Yogpeeth in the world capital of yoga, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India. Here she designed and developed curriculum and educated future teachers from all over the world for their 200- and 300-hour yoga teacher training certifications.
That inspired her to create her destination teacher training courses in 2016 – Swadhyaya Worldwide Yoga Retreats, where she began planning and managing TTC retreat.
Deepa received her post graduate diploma from the prestigious Kaivalyadhama Lonvala, a college of experiential yoga where yoga tradition and yoga science meet. Deeply immersed in yoga tradition throughout her training, she has followed the yoga disciple's path ever since.
After graduating, Deepa immediately began guiding others on their yogic journeys as a teacher at the world renown Rishikesh Yog Peeth, where she teaches yoga asana, yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy and physiology and yoga asana methodology to thousands of students from all over the world who have pilgrimaged to Rishikesh, the birthplace of yoga.
For the past four years Deepa served as teacher and counselor to other teaching staff members, guiding them as teachers at the Rishikesh Yog Peeth teacher training courses, mentoring future yoga asana and anatomy and physiology teachers of the school. Because of her dedication and commitment in her personal practice, teaching and mentoring, she is sought after to teach at retreats and yoga schools throughout India and around the world.
Deepa is instrumental in curriculum development and training the teaching staff at Rishikesh Yog Peeth.
