Living in Harmony

Spa Treatments

In Bali, the concept of living in harmony based on ancient science philosophies and Balinese healing tradition play a very significant role. According to the ancient Sanskrit text – Upanishads, within these bodies, there are five different dimensions.Our physical body expands into more subtle layers of energy around our spiritual center. These five distinct bodies that surround our soul are called koshas or sheaths. Each kosha vibrates at different speeds, they interact and overlap with each other, ranging from gross to transcendental dimensions. This is the road map that ancient seers have left us to understand our journey back to wholeness, so that we can break free from all bondage. Drawing inspiration from the rich local culture and incorporating Subtle Energies natural products, Mandapa Spa treatments blend authentic Balinese massage techniques and powerful ingredients to rejuvenate and replenish the body.

His elders emphasized the healing touch of traditional Balinese massage and the theories of meditation-based raja yoga and service-focused karma yoga throughout his childhood. During this time Nanda was also educated by Indian doctors in the use of medicinal oils and herbs and authentic Ayurvedic. This introduction inspired his first visit to the Sivananda Ashram Karala to mature his personal hatha yoga practice. Through guided yoga postures, breath-work as well as manual manipulation of the fascia and connective tissue, Nanda is able to restore proper alignment, strengthen areas of weakness, improve flexibility, circulation, and range of motion.
