Intuitive Flow – Bali – Ubud
Introducing Linda Madani (born Linda Grondin)
I have the good fortune to lead yoga classes on the island of Bali, in Indonesia. I am a registered yoga teacher with the international Yoga Alliance (R.Y.T 500), a certified yoga therapist both from India and USA, as well as a spiritual healer. I am also a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) with The International Association of Yoga Therapists (www.IAYT.org)
I teach yoga pranala a combination of asana, pranayama, meditation, mudra pranala(Balinese qi gong) and yoga nidra to students in either English, French, Indonesian or Mandarin. A student of a Balinese shaman Cokorda Rai since 1996, I integrate the knowledge that I have received from my teacher into my own teachings.
It is with great pleasure that I share my web site and open my heart to all of you. This site is dedicated to all of you who are committed to the path of self-healing.
for me yoga is a form of spiritual development, which fortifies our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body. It’s not about religion but about connecting with our divine self. The divine is interpreted in many outer forms according to the different cultures within the different religions. In yoga we learn to connect our individual consciousness to the source. Yoga is complementary to any religion. Yoga is a safe place where we can all unite.
becoming a yoga teacher came to me unexpectedly. Although I was a yoga practitioner, it had never crossed my mind that someday I would become a yoga teacher. One day a friend of mine won a scholarship to become a yoga instructor. It was at this point that I knew it was what I needed to do next.
I always knew that my mission in life was to help other people. Although it was a strong calling, somehow at the beginning, I was afraid. Yet, it was the most natural thing for me. All my life I was at service but something was missing. I had no boundaries and people took advantage of me.
It’s only when I understood that being at service didn’t mean being a servant that I could be a true healer. When I understood this: doors opened in front of me and my direction in life became very clear.
I’m on a spiritual path. I don’t pretend to be ahead. There is no order of things on the path. We are each other’s teachers. My students are my teachers. They help me to go further on my path.
I usually start my yoga class with a practice of mudra pranala (Balinese qi gong/energy work) to train my students to switch from thinking to sensing. In a yoga pranala practice we merge our left brain functions of intellect and individual will with our right brain functions of receptivity, intuition and instinct.
