Water Healing

By Martina Reinbold

Imagine yourself being floated around in warm water with relaxing sounds of music that comes from underwater, feeling the soft sensations of the water on your skin as your body is being moved around, allowing you to drift away into a deep state of relaxation and to forget about your everyday life.

Water Healing is a form of bodywork performed in a 35 degree (95 °F) warm water pool at Udara. There are only a few places in Bali where you can get this experience, so it is a unique opportunity to receive a session during your stay on this island. The private session with one of our therapists combines elements of massage, joint mobilization and stretches. While you passively receive the session floating in the water, the therapist will support, move and hold your body. Moments of stillness alternate with rhythmical flowing movements, which free the body in ways impossible on land.

Finding your way through the Yoga Jungle

By Martina Reinbold

Yoga teacher & Wellness Coach at Udara

When I was asked to write down descriptions of the Yoga classes here at Udara last year, I realized how many different Yoga styles we offer and that it really needed an overview for people to find out what the classes are about. Hotel guests and drop-in participants can join 5 to 8 classes daily in various Yoga styles. There are about 20 different classes on the schedule ranging from Hatha to Vinyasa, Happy Healing Flow to Healing Pranayama, Yin to Aerial Yoga and more. The teacher team is a mix of local and western Yoga instructors with lots of experience. This is a great opportunity to get to know each teacher’s flavour and understanding of Yoga.
