MESSAGE FROM THE AMBASSADOR

Our mission is a lifestyle philosophy based on balance, preservation, & restoration. We harmonize opposing viewpoints and integrate universal oneness through love, compassion, and inclusion of all.

- Nikki Baksh

Highlights

***Book with a friend Sept. 15th to receive a complimentary session together! Choose 30minutes of fitness, dance, yoga, or meditation***

You are completely whole, beautiful, and full of love.

We are made in the image of all encompassment, possessing both Shiva (masculine) and Shakti (feminine) energies within our physical earthly beings. Our yoga and meditation focus for this workshop will allow for us to acknowledge, accept, and evoke our god/goddess energies. We will learn how to harness our power to boldly and humbly balance both energies inwardly and outwardly through daily exercises.

'Namaste,' 'I bow to the divine in you.' Yet, we somehow seem to neglect our true divine essence and shy away from our complete embodiment of both masculine and feminine energies. Our entire energetic and physical cosmos embodies the Divine Andrognye. "Ardhanarishvara is one of the 64 manifestations of Parashiva, the aspect of Lord Shiva, who is Absolute, beyond all human comprehension and is hence considered the Nirguna Brahman (the Supreme One, who is beyond attributes)."

Blessings with Shiva/Shakti Energy:

  • Felicity in loving partnerships and married life
  • Raising the Kundalini Energy
  • Transcendental knowledge of universal oneness
  • Ability to harmonize opposing viewpoints or forces

Set on the lush and unspoilt East Coast of Bali, Hotel Komune Resort and Beach Club is blessed with a hypnotizing view of the world famous Keramas surf break. Our resort is conveniently only 50 minutes away from Ngurah Rai International Airport. With its pristine volcanic beach, this 4 star beachfront Bali resort offers a wonderful experience of spending leisure time in a natural luxury hotel.

Sumptuously appointed accommodation with artistic furniture, our unique Bali resort articulates the identity of the Island of the Gods. Our Beach Club was voted in the top 5 in Asia and the executive chef brings his worldwide cuisine experience to the dishes. Inviting entertainment and exquisite nibbles from Asia, Europe, and Australia are being served in themed night dinners.

The body deserves a reward after a hard day in the surf, and our Joglo Spa understands how to pamper the body - from head to toe. The wide selection of treatments caters for both adult's and children's needs.

About Nikki Baksh
Amy Danielson

Amy is passionate about creating a safe, fun and collaborative artistic environment in her classes. Her movement-meditation classes awaken and release the inner god/goddess spiritual and physical energies within us all, and offer gentle guidance into embracing the "journey is the reward."

Sometimes plans change. We get it. That's why Trip Tribe offers a full refund if you meet any of the following criteria: (a) Your trip is over 180 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date. If you do not meet any of these criteria, your booking is not eligible for a refund.

SHARED ROOMS

While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.

IT’S COOL TO TRAVEL SOLO

Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
