    Soul Dance Session: A Dance & Movement Therapy

    Jeda Wellnest, Jakarta | Every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month

    Soul Dance is an opportunity for you to connect and be present with yourself in a non-judgemental and healthy space, through a dynamic form of meditation that's dancing. Dance as meditation is as ancient as our humanity, and Soul Dance is about getting out of your head and into your body. It’s not about the way the movement looks. It’s about how it feels, and therefore, you are encouraged to move however you wish.


    Through Soul Dance, we'd like to empower people of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to freely express themselves in a safe space to dance without talking, drinking and the nightclub vibe. This is about getting great exercise, freeing your mind and body, letting go of your fears, and knowing that you're accepted and supported throughout the dance journey.

    Many have known the healing benefits of essential oils, but how to get even more benefits from it by individualising it to your Ayurvedic body constitution?


    According to Ayurveda, everyone has their unique body constitution (also known as dosha), which makes them more prone to certain diseases and health imbalances. And because of that, certain essential oils are more beneficial to keep for certain body type.


    In this class, you'll learn:

    1. What's your Ayurvedic body type
    2. The diseases and health imbalances that you're more prone to
    3. How to balance your body with diet and lifestyle
    4. Which essential oils that are more beneficial to your Ayurvedic body type

    Food for Mood: Ayurvedic Nutrition for Mental and Emotional Health​

    at Jeda Wellnest, Jakarta | Saturday, October 19th, 2019

    "What's the ideal diet for my body type?"


    That's probably the most asked question that I received. Unfortunately, the answer to that isn't that simple. Because if we want to find the super ideal diet for your Ayurvedic body constitution, it requires adjustment based on: time of the day; season; the place where you're at; your birth constitution; and, if you have, your current state of imbalance.


    Which is why for beginner, what I'd recommend starting in regards to Ayurvedic diet is to focus on a Sattvic Diet. A diet that can promote sattva (harmony and peace) for our mind.


    The few benefits of the Sattvic Diet are:

    1. Helping to treat the mental and emotional issues, as we're able to let go of the past and things that no longer serve us.
    2. Giving more clarity to our mind and thinking. Helping us to perceive the issue that we're facing more clearly and therefore, the solution that's needed to solve it wholesomely.
    3. Increasing our intuition as we're able to be more in the present moment. Not clinging to the past, nor worrying about the future.
    4. Increasing our ability to be a better judge, including deciding what's the ideal food to eat.


    In this class, I'm going to share with you:

    1. Seven principles on Sattvic Diet, what to eat and avoid;
    2. Three tips on how to strengthen your digestion (Agni), so that you can better transform life's experiences and the things that you consume; 
    3. Three tips on how to get rid of toxic waste product (Ama), physically and mentally; and
    4. General principles on how to eat for your Ayurvedic type (Dosha)


    By understanding the principle of the Sattvic Diet, not only it'd bring more health and happiness into your life, but also harmony to your external world and your relationship with the people around you.


    I look forward to sharing it with you on October 19th!

    Different from what it used to be, where women's role is only limited as a housewife, modern women are expected to be a multi-talented being.

    How to Individualise Your Diet with Ayurveda

    at Burgreens, Jakarta | November 15th, 2014

    Sebelum saya belajar mengenai Ayurveda, saya sering bingung tentang kenapa berbagai penyakit/ketidak seimbangan muncul dalam tubuh saya: masalah pencernaan, jerawat yg tidak pernah hilang, berat badan yang naik, hilangnya vitalitas tubuh/cepat lelah, hingga skoliosis pada tulang belakang saya.


    Ayurveda kemudian mengajarkan saya pentingnya mengetahui badan saya, termasuk keunikan dan perbedaan yang badan saya miliki. Karena badan setiap orang berbeda dengan yang lainnya, ternyata makanan yg menurut pandangan umum dianggal sehat pun, bisa memberikan dampak negatif jika dikonsumsi.

    Sebagai orang yang tumbuh di perkotaan, kemudian merasakan hidup di pedesaan, pantai, bahkan hutan, sekarang saya merasa bahwa kembali hidup di kota besar itu agak sulit.


    Kalau orang bilang, “Knowledge is Power”, I will need to add, “Knowledge is a Curse, too”.


    Seperti semua hal yang punya 2 sisi, double sided coin, mengetahui hal-hal yang tidak banyak diketahui oleh umum kadang bikin saya miris. Saya sering lihat teman-teman di media sosial yang ingin sehat, ingin langsing, atau bahkan ingin agak gemukan dengan metode ini atau itu… trying really hard… but got minimal result…
