    (10/4/2017)

    Volunteers from the Anand Ashram Foundation are providing yoga therapy sessions to some of the more than 95,000 people who have evacuated their homes surrounding volcanic Mt. Agung following a “Level IV – Awas” alert.

     

    The chairman of the Foundation, Dr. Sayoga, told the State News Agency Antara that training and exercises focused on breathing techniques as a means of facing challenges and eliminating stress.


    The Foundation, founded by spiritual leader Anand Krishnan, has sent 30 volunteers to lead yoga breathing sessions for the evacuees who have been displaced by the volcano alert.

    Separate sessions were organized separately for both children and adults in order to learn exercises that are designed to make their lives less stressful.

     

    Dr. Sayoga said the team of volunteers would continue to conduct training and therapy sessions to all the evacuees of Mt. Agung who are now spread across temporary camps in all regencies of Bali.
     

    “I also provided yoga training when Mt. Merapi exploded in Yogyakarta,” explained Dr. Sayoga.
     

    One of the displaced villagers, Ketut Kayun, said he enjoyed receiving the yoga training provided by the foundation, while expressing the hope to follow more sessions so he could fully appreciate its beneficial effects.

    Nusa Penida Still Festive, Only Later

    Nusa Penida Festival-IV Postponed Due to Mt. Agung Emergency

    (9/28/2017)

    The Nusa Penida Festival-IV (NPF) scheduled to commence on October 5, 2017, on Bali’s offshore island of Nusa Penida that forms a part of the Klungkung Regency, has been postponed indefinitely due to ongoing preparations for an eruption of Mount Agung.

    NusaBali reports that the event originally set to commence on the coming full moon must be postponed until further notice. Nyoman Suwirta, the Regent of Klungkung, speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, said: “We have postponed NPF IV until a future date yet to be determined. We hope God will provide the best course of action and that this condition (a volcanic disaster) will soon end. When this ends, then we will hold the NPF-IV.”

    The decision to postpone the event, seen as a major tourism event for the Regency of Klungkung, was made after careful consultation with the various agencies of the regional government. The people of Nusa Penida have been advised of the postponement of a celebration that would be inappropriate when a large number of Balinese are experiencing a natural upheaval and displacement from their homes.

    The Regent of Klungkung underlined that in postponing the NPF IV the Regency was not abandoning tourism promotion, but only shifting its attention to the more pressing urgent humanitarian demands. Tour activities and other tourism activities in Klungkung are continuing to operate on a normal basis.

    The regency has allocated Rp. 1.7 billion for the NPF IV and a number of performances have been rehearsed and prepared, including a colossal Rejeng Dewa dance involving 1,000 performers drawn from students and housewives living on Nusa Penida. The postponed festival was scheduled to present wide range of cultural dances, local games, cooking demonstrations, surfing events, and traditional sailing boat races.
