My name is Luh Manis. I was born and raised in Bali. I have had special training as “Jero” or Balinese priestess. After having undergone this special training, I have the responsibility to lead ceremony, following all of the traditional observances. Since I became a “Jero”, I became sensitive to energy and I had to deal with a lot of power. Yoga and meditation help me to balance all of that. I trained with ’Shakti Mhi of Prana Yoga College and certified by Prana Yoga College BC at 200-hour level. Now I’m practicing and teaching Hatha Yoga, Prana Yoga, and meditation full time. Additionally, I guide people to explore their spiritual side and to study Balinese healing practices based on on Balinese culture.

“I knew about yoga for many years , but I joined my very first yoga class on 2010. My first class was awesome, I will never forget it. At that time I felt something different. Something that I couldn’t describe by my own words. At the end of the class I felt deeply in love with yoga.
In 2011 I started to join a lot of yoga activities in my University, and also I learnt how to be a yoga instructor, to lead my friends. After graduating from my University, I couldn’t practice it as much as I did before because I was so busy with my job.
Finally in April 2017 I decided to join the Yoga Pranala Intensive Teache Training, and I got a lot of support from my friends.
My goals were to develop my knowledge about yoga and to gain discipline. God lead me to choose the best way.
After the level 1 Yoga Pranala Training and getting my 200 RYT with Yoga Alliance, I got opportunity to teach yoga at Intuitive Flow and at Amrta Siddhi in Ubud.
I am so greatful for this opportunity to be able to learn more and more about teaching and sharing my practice with others.
Every time I teach, at the end of the class, I always remind my students about self love and taking more care of themselves more.
Currently I teach Basic yoga at Intuitive Flow and Gentle yoga at Amrta Siddhi. “
