In conjunction with 20th anniversary of Mandara Spa, Guru Made Sumantra purposely flew over all the way from Ubud, Bali. I was grateful to be able to join Guru Made Sumantra’s Traditional Balinese Energy Healing Yoga session at Mandara Spa, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa. He was only here for a day as part of his world tour!
Before the session began, I was served with some cool ginger tea and cool towel to freshen up myself. After all, it was a bit of a distance from the hotel to Mandara Spa as it was located within nature; surrounded by lots of luscious greenery.
I love how I was being treated by their gracious staffs. Polite yet helpful when I have any enquiries.
Balinese Energy Healing Yoga @ Mandara Spa
Guru Made Sumantra was born in Banjar Payogan village, Ubud, and grew up in a family of traditional Balinese shaman healers (Balian). The healing tradition and knowledge was passed on from generation to generation.
This treatment is called “Prakat” healing. He uses 3 types of energy to work on each state:
- Prana (Bio Energy) on Body
- Kundalini (Awareness Energy) on Mind
- Atman (Soul Power Energy) on Soul
The positive vibration will thus be raised from the soul into the mind and body. It’s perfect to condition our general well-being as a whole before going back to work after the long holiday break.
Unlike the usual yoga where there are lots of movements, Balinese Energy Healing Yoga focuses more on breathing instead. Imagine taking a really deep breathe, exhale slowly, and repeat. There were times when we had to take shallow breathes and exhale rapidly too. During some moments, I can really feel the energy flowing inside me.
It was a really good session as I sweat out a lot. So can I assume that toxin and fat has been eliminated? :p
Anyway, I had a tour around Mandara Spa and I’m so tempted to have a massage session there. Their spa menu offers a wide range of treatments, using ancient Balinese wisdom incorporated with the latest Spa science from Elemis spa-therapies.
Don’t forget to make an appointment for an unforgettable blissful experience! For a full list of Mandara Spa treatment menu and price list, kindly click on the link.
