Wayan Partawan, Teacher’s Assistant
Brought up in Gianyar, Wayan has surrendered himself to beauty and creativity. Besides yoga, Parta practices Balinese dance and sings out melodies that his heart tunes into, he is a fan of Keertan. He agrees that art shall be sprouted from an awakened intuition.
Wayan lives in Tampaksiring with his wife and three sons. “I love them very much. They are my reminder to stay strong in facing life’s challenges,” he said. Having been with ONEWORLD retreats since 2008, Wayan mentioned one thing that keeps him interested in his current occupation, “It’s the yoga itself.”
The 35-old man found inspiration in yoga, which has led him to consistently practice the art. In 2010 he had the opportunity to join the Australia’s Yoga Arts Teacher Training in Bali. Wayan has been the yoga teacher’s assistant to the Escape the World retreat and all other retreats hosted at Kumara. Next year, together with Janet Nicol, he will lead the Deepening Your Yoga Practice retreat. Wayan also teaches yoga during weekends. He is definitely an important part of the team and working with Wayan is a true delight.
