Relax. Breathe. Be Mindful. Give.
Power of Now Oasis was build to share yoga, meditation and holistic treatments with everyone and most of all: to give back. As our main beneficiaries, we proudly support the children at Jodie O’Shea House and Sari Hati School. Established in 2010, we are a semi-non-profit company, motivated by karma we believe in the authentic essence of Yoga.
Honesty and Integrity
At Power Of Now Oasis we do our best to respect the laws of the land, as required. We are a fully legal company and our western employees have legal work permits. We pay tax and we endeavor to be respectful members of the expatriate business community. You will not have your retreat canceled, prior or during, by immigration, and risk loss of your valuable time and money.
Power Of Now Oasis Founder
I built Power of Now Oasis to keep myself occupied, create a meeting place for the community and hopefully help a few people by teaching some Asana classes, Chi Gung, and meditation.
I’ve practised yoga and Chi Gung for more than 30 years. I like the principles behind the Sutras and the Tao Te Ching along with the movements which I try to practise on most days. It is easier said than done, but it has helped me throughout my life.
I was a boat captain for many years. In 2010 I sailed into Sanur harbour and was very lucky to find the beachfront property where Angelique lived, which is where we eventually built the studio.
I lived there for a year or so, just taught a few classes and had lots of fun with the Jodie O’Shea kids and angelique. Very blissful days. Then the modern yoga crowds began coming, so I decided to move out and let it go semi-commercial. That enabled us to really help the 2 foundations we support, all the staff and their families, and I hope all the students and visitors too.
The staff are like family to me. The foundation kids are now 50% beneficiaries of any profits and the rest primarily supports other good local causes including scholarships and training for locals, fair salaries for all the staff and the continued development of the studio business – so it can keep doing good things, I hope.
I still hang around there most mornings. I like the ocean and usually do a bit of practise on the beach, and take angelique out for a graze. The foundation kids still visit often to play on the beach or do classes and we still have movie nights and dinner regularly.
We try to maintain standards and ethics in all the courses, retreats and classes we run. We all try to keep it real at Power of Now Oasis and have a bit of fun.
