We stayed there for two night and had such an amazing time. The house is clean, spacious and comfortable. The pool. Natural spring pool surrounds by the trees. Just amazing. Beautiful bamboo structure where we had our yoga was nice. I can't stop saying all the good things. Last but not lease, the people. They make us feel so welcome and helping us on transport to wander about to. I'll definitely come back!

We attended a workshop earlier this year. The instructors were well qualified and inspiring, the location in an ashram so amazing. The owners are themselves yoga teachers, very friendly and professional. Highly recommended :)

Shanti Toya Ashram

Shanti Toya Ashram was founded by a Balinese yoga teacher Pradnya (Ni Kadek Artuti Pradnya)

When she first saw this piece of land nestled on a natural holly spring, surrounded by jungles, rice fields, and temples, she felt that this would be an ideal place to build an Ashram and share a sacred wisdom of yoga, which she received from her teacher Mahayogi Gokulacandra Das. Since then 2 years have passed and more than 2000 guests from all over the world experienced a unique atmosphere of Shanti Toya Ashram, that helped them to connect with their inner self, nature and other like-minded people. People may come here as solo travelers but they always leave as a member of our family with their hearts filled with love, minds rested in harmony and bodies nourished with healthy food and daily yoga classes. 

Yoga for us is not about bending or flexibility, it's about connection and servitude. 

Our mission is to help as many people as possible to find their connection with themselves and save it through their everyday life.  Most of the yoga happens off the mat.
