"We can find peace and contentment in many ways, yoga is just one way that encompasses everything, it enables us to surrender to our true self, go inward, find a connection beyond our ego, toward God, which leads us to kindness and welfare toward all human beings. All of life starts to become a phenomenon which we are grateful for. We are all teachers and students on this earth and can benefit greatly from sharing and learning from each other. Everyone is born a light/good human being & we can draw this out leading by example with dignity and integrity, having enthusiasm about nature and our spiritual growth" - Joe B, 2021


Dada was searching for spiritual answers since childhood, and finally introduced to holistic practices of yoga pose, meditation and Tantra and Rajadhiraja Yoga in 1993. In 1999, after several years working in the corporate world, Dada’s strong vision for spirituality led him to a major turning point in his life when he decided to leave his job and immerse himself fully in a devoted path of yoga. He went on to pursue training in India as a sannyasin, senior yoga monk.


From then he spent most of his time teaching yoga and meditation in Taiwan and Australia and eventually returned to his native island of Bali, bringing his devotional work home.
