Arrived in the early morning at Desa Visesa, this was going to be my last day at the village. I began my morning activities in the mud area.
“We’re going to do a morning yoga!”, said a middle aged man with Balinese accent.
It’s definitely not a modern yoga since the group wear all traditional attire. It’s not going to a ‘clean’ one either, we’re going to do it in a mud! This one sounds weird but mud yoga is a new-style of meditation and very popular nowadays in Ubud. The yoga started with a blessing from the instructor, each of the participant splashed by holy water that previously have been prayed along with the offerings and then down to the mud. It covered our feet quite high, almost touched my knee. Mud yoga definitely not an easy-peasy one, since our weight is double up with the heaviness of the mud. Began with meditation, the yoga continued to various challenging style required stability and serenity. Dare to try?
