HOUSING: In regards to housing, we will not be offering on-site accommodations, as we prefer to have students enjoy their down time away from each other so that they can have their own space and privacy to integrate the days while they study and deepen into their own personal practice. However, there are many villas and bungalows that are available within walking distance to our shala, in which we will be happy to share that information with you upon request. We also recommend checking out Aair B&B.
VISA: The training is a 6 day intensive, and the free '30 day visa' provided by Balinese Immigration when entering the airport will be sufficient for your stay. Upon arrival you 'CAN' pay $35USD for a 30 day social visa, which 'CAN' be renewed for another 30 days, if you wish to stay longer. Very Important: When applying for your visa or passing through immigration at the airport, when asked what is the reason for your visit, be sure to mention that you are here on vacation. No more, no less. The local Balinese people are profoundly kind, loving, and forever generous, but the indonesian government itself is known for its corruption. So it is always best to keep your conversation concise and simple.

Engel is the founder and director of Pranayama Sadhana, School of Pranic Studies. Beginning his journey of self-inquiry at a young age, he began pursuing the questions, 'Who am I? From where do I come? Where do I go, and what must I do?' This pursuit as a young child was ultimately his awakening to the path of yoga. Having spent his early years as a renunciate and devoted to the studies of pranayama, Engel continues to find light upon this path, where he shares an entirely new chapter of classical teachings that inspire subtle knowledge and self inquiry.
"With pranayama being the most hidden, most well kept mystery of yoga, our school is humbled in devotion, in sharing with the world, insight into this lost science."See more photos and other events by this presenter
