There will be plenty of time for some fun too–so don’t worry. Our evening sessions and group activities will have you smiling and feeling the love in ways you never thought possible.
The training is held in the Jungle Shala at Ananda Cottages, in Ubud, Bali. The training room is located in the midst of rice paddy fields and jungle. Is is a special site isolated from the hustle and bustle, which is perfect for Qigong training.
The accommodation is close to shops and restaurants and is located in one of the best areas in Ubud.
There will be scheduled free time each week. However, because this is a 200 hour training and we have a lot to cover, there won’t be large amounts of it.
This is entirely up to you. If you are travelling long distances, you may want to allow some extra time to get settled in. Also, please consider your Visa restrictions (see Visa section).
Bali is approximately 8 degrees south of the equator. So you can expect a tropical, warm and humid climate all year around with two main distinctive seasons: Dry Season (March-October) and Rainy Season (November-February). The temperature is humid and generally 27-31 degrees (77-88 F).
If you choose our accommodation package you will be served three delicious vegan and vegetarian meals every day. The chefs are well trained and experienced when it comes to meal plans and any special dietary needs, just let us know and we will do our best to cater for you.
If you choose to eat off site, the food in Ubud is absolutely amazing. Whether omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, or completely raw, this town caters to all tastes.
While there will be plenty of time for rest and integration, the training can be a very consuming experience. For that reason, we recommend that you bring everything you need with you.
One note: We have a number of special evenings and events planned while you’re with us. One of these nights requires a certain type of dress – please pack a ‘white’ outfit, something that is below knee length for women, and covers the shoulders (men and women).
Also pack comfortable hiking shoes (trainers are fine) and clothes for a mountain hike.
It can get cooler in the evenings in Ubud so you will need some light long sleeve pants and tops.

To enter Indonesia, your passport must have a minimum of 6 months remaining validity from the date of your prospective DEPARTURE FROM Bali. Please be proactive and learn about Visa requirements particular to your own home country in advance of actual travel and ask for confirmation when closer to your departure date since immigration requirements in Indonesia are subject to sudden changes.
If you decide to enter the country on a free, Visa on Arrival, please know this Visa is not renewable. You will be charged a 300,000 IDR fee for every day you overstay your Visa. If you’re planning to overstay less than 3 days, this may be a more affordable option than obtaining a visa.
You may also consider obtaining a 60 day Visa on Arrival ($35 USD) which is renewable after 30 days. If you obtain one of these, we will assist you with the renewal and provide time during the training to go to Immigration for the renewal process, which will cost 600,000/700,000 IDR (can be subject to change).
We will do our best to keep you updated on any changes we become aware of, however it is solely your responsibility to arrange your visa and paperwork for the time you plan to be in Bali.
We strongly recommend you obtain a visa in advance from the Indonesian Consulate in your home country. This will allow you to relax and enjoy the training without concerns of Visa renewal. If you elect to get a visa that requires a renewal during the course of the training we cannot guarantee you will have the time and availability to leave the training site to do so.
It may be worth being comprehensively insured to cover all costs and consequences of medical treatment, repatriation, damage/theft/loss of personal belongings, recovery of course fees and flights booked in the event of cancellation or early departure.
In the case of minor illnesses or injuries, there are a few medical clinics in the local Ubud area and several international clinics closer to the airport. These clinics typically do not accept insurance (though you may be reimbursed through your insurance provider) and are relatively inexpensive. If situations require extreme medical emergency care, patients are evacuated to Singapore. Due to significant cost evacuation care, it is advisable to check this coverage is included on your medical plan.
it shouldn’t need to be stated though due to the extreme nature of penalties in Indonesia we put an extra cautionary note DO NOT bring any even “mild” drugs/narcotics (other than prescription) into the Country. Violators, even if they are not from Indonesia, are subject to life in a 3rd world prison and the death penalty, and the foreign governments can do very little about it: don’t take any risks.
You don’t need any prior experience of Qigong to be able to attend. It is recommended that you are in reasonable good health as you will be practicing physical exercises.
