The Nusa Dua Experience, part 1

After the yoga teacher training ended, Marianne and I headed over to Nusa Dua to spend a few days with one of our teachers, Mark, at his yoga center. Sahadja yoga is on the property connected to one of the royal palaces of Bali, so Mark lives there for free and is kind of the groundskeeper of the place. He's also part of a group of "brothers" who all practice yoga together--included in this group is the king next door. Mer and I were invited to one of the ceremonies at the temple connected to the palace and were graciously escorted around by our new friend Made. 
This has to be one of my favorite days in Bali, being included in such a fun and spiritual event. Enjoy the pictures!
