Ni Luh Manis

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.

Renee Amber



My yoga journey began 20 years ago, wandering the streets of Kathmandu I met my first Hatha Yoga teacher. We didn’t share the same verbal language but the transmissions of yoga were clearly felt for me.
I spiralled in and out over the following two decades dabbling in this style and that, eventually finding my teacher Linda here in Bali at Intuitive Flow several years ago. Under her brilliant YTT,  I became certified in 2015. I loved the training so much I am about to do it a fourth time!!
I have continued to teach yoga (part time) since then in a number of different countries, and have been fortunate enough to also assist in Yoga Teacher Trainings.
Pranala has changed my life and become a great love for me to practise and share,  combined with a Hatha flow and Vinyassa style..
I look forward to merging energies with you soon!

Pande Putu

Pande  is a massage therapist and yoga teacher at Intuitive Flow, a graduate of our teacher training.

He was born on this adorable beautiful island, Bali.

“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. “

Chiara Ramella

Chiara is one of the yoga teachers from Intuitive Flow, a graduate of Yoga Pranala Intensive in 2013,and Sama Yoga in 2011.

 I teach an harmonious combination of these 2 beautiful modalities, directly from the heart…
In my classes we slow down to became stronger. We learn to be gentle with ourselves, in order to be gentle with everyone and everything around. Moving the body and the breath to discover and unveil the space and the light within, to enhance self-love and create acceptance and worthiness by connecting with the energies that are continuously supporting us.
I am also passionate about the healing potential of Essential Oils. I like to incorporate these amazing gifts from Mother Nature during practice to shift and raise frequencies.

She has been teaching diverse yoga styles (Kids Yoga, Beginners, Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin) at a number of yoga studios in Indonesia. Her main goal in every class is to help every student to be more present and achieve inner peace in the moment by bringing awareness back to the body, mind and breaths in each pose.
