He expertly combines his 200 Hour Yoga Alliance teacher training by Shades of Yoga with his three years of study at Geranada Samihita, the Sutra Patanjali Sanskrit with Indian Guruji’s ashram in Bali. Agung also draws from his original grass roots grounding by dedicated Balinese teachers of deep lineage.



As a native Balinese person I grew up with traditions like preparing offerings day to day. I had also practiced Balinese dance from 6 years of age. Not realising it at the time these activities were to give me a foundation for my future career in yoga.
A motorbike accident was to be the reason I begun to take yoga more seriously, and begin the long journey of educating myself to finally become a professional yoga teacher.
For 3-4 years yoga has been a big part of my life. Years of practice have helped me grow stronger, more flexible, confident, and fearless. I also have a far clearer understanding of my body/mind connection as I continue to practice each day. Most importantly yoga has taught me to live each moment, and to be more mindful.
In 2016 I completed 200 hours of Hatha/Vinyasa that included 50 hours of Yin yoga at the School of Sacred Arts.
In my classes, I combine creative sequences, breath awareness, mindfulness meditation and an understanding of the body’s limitations. I believe this his helps to deepen the practice. My Yin classes combine asana, energy lines in the body (Meridian pathways in Chinese medicine) and a mindfulness meditation. In this practice we are creating one connection between body, breath and mind in a passive mode and allowing oneself to just “be” without judgment. This allows an enhancement on a deeper level with our physical body.
I hope that each time my students step off the yoga mat they will be left feeling refreshed, nourished, and more balanced in body, mind and spirit.




It did not take long for Indra to decide what the next step was after his first Yoga lesson, an experience that was beyond special. And after completing his teacher training in Rishikesh, India, Indra can finally materialize his steadfast determination: to share the life-changing experience of Yoga.

To Indra, Yoga is about unity and balance, hence his equal emphasis on the intense and subtle aspects of Yoga to strengthen and heal one’s self. He has cultivated an understanding that the body is a reflection of the mind and soul, and vice versa, and Yoga is the ideal tool to synchronize them, ultimately helping one achieve a unified existence.

I was introduced to Yoga through a friend who was looking to get a good deal on his local gym membership by bringing another person with him!
I saw people doing Yoga from the outside of the studio which was the first time I learned that Yoga is not just about meditation.
I signed up for membership immediately and started the Yoga classes the next day.
I loved Yoga from the start and was soon taking classes 4-5 times a week.
From then on I attended as many different types of Yoga classes as were available which was pretty limited in Surabaya 4 years ago!Year by year I continued my practice and as I met more and more Yoga practioner’s I began to think about doing my first Yoga Teacher Training course.
I completed my first training in the beginning 2015 in Surabaya.

In the beginning I was taking the training for my own knowledge and to educate myself more about Yoga, how to really do poses safely.

At the same time, I started to do substitute Yoga teaching at a few different Yoga studios around Surabaya and so my teaching career began.

The atmosphere of Yoga life in Surabaya is very different compared to Ubud. If you are as interested in Yoga as I am, Ubud is really an exciting place to be able to live and teach in.

My mother passed away of Cancer in June 2015 and now I want to share and educate people more about a healthy lifestyle. I want to help people to become more aware of their body and how it affects their well-being. I believe all sickness comes from the mind, through Yoga I think you can fight it.
