This was a truly memorable and powerful experience, which was at times very emotional for me. I felt safe and nurtured at all times and loved learning and practicing yoga Pranala. Linda was very generous and I feel very lucky to have participated in this very special retreat.

I think this retreat is for those who have gone beyond "popular" and flexibility and are looking for a greater understanding of the other aspects of yoga - focusing on the breath and the spiritual aspects. I have learned a great deal this week. Thank you!
A very nice resort with great rooms and healthy food. The Pranala retreat was above expectations. Linda is a very potential and dedicated teacher. I am now able to incorporate Pranala yoga into my daily routine and yoga practice. Pranala has been a true gift for life.
The retreat was a great mix with yoga, meditation, massage and relaxation. Linda is an incredible teacher. She puts so much energy and love into her lovely yoga sessions. I am leaving feeling very relaxed. She shared many resources with us to help at home. What an amazing six days! Thank you!
An enlightening and loving experience that has been thoroughly enjoyed in the comfort of like-minded new friends. Thank you!
Fantastic experience! The accommodation, meals, staff and yoga were beyond expectations. The yoga experience with Linda was amazing - loved the chanting, meditation and Kirtan. I don't want to leave!
ONEWORLD retreats at Kumara with Linda, Sophie and Wayan (small) was an uplifting and truly spiritual experience. The retreat exceeded my expectations and the staff and retreat facilities were of a very high standard. Thank you for the experience of Yoga Pranala in Bali that I shall never forget. Solo travellers will find ONEWORLD retreats an ideal place to make new friends from around the world and deepen you inner and outward journey. Thank you, Namaste.
I came to expect only more for my body, but my energy and spirit were moved also. The shift of the energy changed our attitudes and faces and I am confident that with practice, it continues to permeate our lives. A truly moving experience with a beautiful leader (Linda) - Namaste.

An unexpected journey made the retreat more interesting and enjoyable. Each person seemed to have something unexpected. The visit to the healer was truly outstanding and well worth doing. Linda's classes were well guided and very rewarding.
New born! Yes, that's what I feel after 7 days and 6 nights of a fabulous, spectacular and soul cleansing journey. Linda Madani is the core of this retreat. She is truly a sincere and beautiful person that shines her light and love to everybody, during each activity in this journey. The accommodation was a heaven on earth. The ritual and a visit to Tjokorda Rai were also amazing. I love everything on the retreat!!
Very healing. I got so much out of it.
Linda, I'd like to express my deep gratitude for the amazing journey you took us on during our retreat, you have created a wonderful fusion of practices. Your complete approach to yoga plus the Balinese energy teachings were a perfect combination for me and dove-tailed beautifully with my existing energy / yoga practice. In fact, I appreciated and felt everything more deeply because of the energy already flowing in me although I know that others coming to the practices for the first time were also transformed. I have incorporated the mudras into my daily practice and feel inspired to take my yoga practice onto the next level too. Thank you also for introducing us to your teacher, Tjokorda Rai. I will never forget meeting him and the healing session I had, not to mention the final ceremony which will remain equally etched in my mind and heart as one of the most significant experiences of my life!

I recently participated (18th-24th December, 2011) in a 7 day retreat 'Healing& Spiritual Development with Yoga Pranala' with Linda Madani, at the wonderful OneWorld Retreats, Kumara, Ubud. I am really happy to share that this retreat far exceeded my expectations! I have not been a regular yoga practitioner (all that will now change!) and was a little concerned I might struggle with the intensity of the morning & evening excerise, but Linda successfully managed to support us all through individual attention and a wonderfully balanced programme. A particular highlight was the visit to a traditional healer, Cokorda Rai, Linda's mentor & teacher. This visit was a real revelation for me, and participation in personal & group ceremonies were highly profound, life altering experiences. Thank you Linda, and thank you to all the staff at Kumara who were absolutely brillant!
Linda Madani is an excellent teacher whose compassionate yet firm guidance helped me to go deeper into yoga and meditation practise than ever before. Following her week-long Pranala workshop, my body and mind have never felt more centred and calm. I know I will forever integrate her teachings into my life. Kumara Sakti is an exceptionally beautiful location for any kind of retreat, and there is no doubt that the spiritual feeling of this place + Bali in general enhanced my own positive spiritual experience during my week here. Thank you Linda, Wayan, Komang & all the staff for their generous & compassionate, service assistance & personal connection!
Spa massage were very fantastic - lovely staff & very good skills + excellent add-on's. Really good in ascertaining exactly what you want to begin with + checked in during massage. Good that you are asking + provide feedback as well. All staff were very friendly, respectful helpful and lovely people waiting to help & assist. Actual retreat: Linda Madani was a powerful & potentially transformative experience, giving us practical tools to assist our personal healing journey as well and a lot of feed for thought + introspection . Special thanks to Wayan for doing such a wonderful job of looking after us this week, always ready + willing to help with any request.
The staff and service are excellent! Thank you very much for all your kindness, you are great people!! Thank you for the delicious vegan meal!! Thank you to remembering our names.......
Thank you, Kumara for an amazing stay. Food, Staff, Retreat+Surroundings were all excellent!! I hope came visit again soon.
I would highly recommended Kumara Sakti. The staff was excellent, food was lovely and the room were amazing! I am not sure I would recommend yoga pranala. It's very special kind of practice that is not for everyone. A participant needs to,what to do more spiritual work and meditation and not be as interested in the Asanas. Thank you! All and all it was an excellent trip!
It's just wonderful place, peaceful and the service is really nice. Friendly people. Also the group was feeling so good. Delicious food. I like that you can always get some fruits + coffee, tea. Yoga hole is just perfect for practice and meditation. And the rooms are huge, is really nice that everyone who need get enough space, and I also like that only us here. Overall - its been organized very good and its not wasting of money at all. In no way. It's a big experience for life .

Linda is an inspiring & confident teacher who instructs with compassion & precision. She has brought a dimension into my life which will enable me to continue my spiritual journey. Linda's passion pervades her entire being this is supported by being in such a magical spot. The staff at Kumara were perfect. Everything done with knowing less humbleness & that lovely Balinese smile to be able to return & continue this path with so many supportive people around can only be a form of the heaven on earth. I bow to you all. Namaste. The depth of Linda's knowledge is extraordinary, her ability to impart it even more so. She creates a symphony with the visible and the invisible, my heart sings.
The healing and spiritual development retreat was a terrific experience. Linda was stalled, positive, supportive and giving. The practice built through the week leaving me feeling quite transformed by the end. Thank you so much.
Very interesting and intense experience, great yoga teacher and enthusiastic team, very kind & personal treatments.
