Today, the Balinese Hindus celebrate the coming of the new year of Saka calendar, not with a lavish party, but instead with the observation of Nyepi Day; a day of silence, self-reflection and meditation. With all routine activities come to a complete halt, today is a celebration to purify the earth and all human being. We are at Jeeva Resorts wish you a Happy Nyepi Day and Tahun Baru Caka 1939.
There's a big shift that happens when you learn to appreciate the subtleties of your practice. 💫
There are times when I like to flow through what feels like a yoga dance, exploring arm balances and advanced variations. But really, my daily sadhana consists of the same basic asanas again, and again... and that's where I find the richest discoveries. ✨💫

#5StarTip 🌟: how to reserve a great restaurant when traveling to a new city.
🌟Use @tripadvisor to find your top three restaurant choices in the area.
🌟Get a second opinion and look up your choices on the @yelp app to read what reviewers wrote. Also make sure the restaurant meets your needs. (Ex. gluten free, vegetarian, etc)
🌟Once you've picked where you would like to go, you can go through @tripadvisor to make your reservation using @opentable.
🌟When making your reservation, use the special requests section to write what you would like or what you're celebrating. For my last reservation I wrote I would like a view of the ocean :)
🌟If making a reservation at a popular place and a view is important, make your reservation early, I make mine as close to opening as I can to avoid the crowds.
Photo from my balcony of #sandiego living at its finest 😎 I realized upon checking in at @beachvillage that it had been nine years since my last stay. I'm pleased to report that this hotel within a hotel has improved with age. Great service, improved amenities, rooms not showing any signs of age, same spectacular setting. #beachresort#beachvillage#coronado#hoteldelcoronado#luxuryresort
