Svarga Loka Resort:
The origin of this resorts name takes inspiration from the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, which describes Svarga Loka, as Good Kingdom – a heavenly paradise for the Hindu Gods. A humble recreation is evident here, and Svarga Loka sits on the riverbanks of the beautiful Campuhan river in Ubud, Bali. The resort offers a wide range of luxury accommodation and facilities as well as boasts two wellness centres offering complimentary treatments such as massage, Balinese healing sessions, colonics, mineral infusions as well as complimentary use of the sauna, and swimming pools. The resort also has beautiful stone baths on the famous champhuan river that can be filled with mineral water, therapeutic aromatherpy oils and flowers upon request.

Ubud also hosts an array of local and international cuisine nearby the resort, and Svarga Loka itself offers incredible meal options!
Our unique programmes offer a tailor made Immersion that are results driven giving participants profound growth and new abilities physically as well as a fresh an inspired perspective on life.
Firstly what sets this programme apart from others is that the depth of yogic wisdom today has been largely lost and we have a focus on reinstating this life changing wisdom throughout the programme. Another unique attribute is the daily foundational practice is the Ashtanga Yoga primary series yet with inverision / handstand transitions the whole way through as a means to create a deeper connection and awareness to alignment and predominantly breath access. You are supported at which ever level you are at and you do not even need to be proficient at any type of inversions to partake in this programme. Profound development is inevitable regardless due to the many variations and access points given to each individual in a supportive setting.
Methodology consists of learning the healing, therapeutic and beneficial effects of asana, which will enable you to create therapeutic sequences for others. You will also learn creative sequencing for power vinyasa, gentle flows and yin yoga with the essential skills necessary to be able to develop unique classes, that will help you address and support people at varying levels within their practice.
The practical experience you gain daily teaching in workshops and class settings, as well as being assisted with developing many aspects of your unique voice as a teacher, guide and powerful source of healing in the world, will equip you with the skills that enable, encourage and inspire others.
You will learn how to create freedom in your breathe to access and remove tension, and how the correlation between alignment and ability to breath optimally are essential in yogic practice.
You will experience meditation techniques, including the profound effects of mantra. Sometimes classical Indian instruments will be used and the deeper meanings of the mantras will be shared. These classes are transformative and through sound healing we clear our throat, heart and third eye centres which shifts us from the thinking mind into the experience of the soul. “Through sound we can be conditioned, and through sound we can also be liberated.” – Indradyumna Swami
Our teachers are all specialists in their field, well known for devoting their lives to mastery of their specific area of focus, and are each gifted at sharing this in a personal and accessible way for all levels of practitioners.
We understand that in one group there can be many varying levels of practcioners and we run by the motto that knowone is 'better or worse' than anyone else. We have all just placed different ammount of time and energy into different things.
During the course of the programme each individual is given their own various and access points to each asana in a supportive, uplifting and fin environment.
This has proved to bring profound results in growth and upliftment on all levels.
