In collaboration with The Indonesian Ministry of Tourism, the Embassy of Indonesia is taking two American yogis to experience “Wonderful Indonesia Yoga Retreat” in Yogyakarta and Bali from October 23 to November 2, 2017.
Jessamyn Stanley of Durham, North Carolina and Sean Phelps of Los Angeles, California are yoga instructors who have taught yoga classes and workshops in the United States and abroad. Both of them are also active in social media (@mynameisjessamyn and @seanphelpslife) promoting yoga and wellness. During their visit in Indonesia, Jessamyn and Sean will conduct meditation and yoga sessions at tourist sites, such as Borobudur Temple, Prambanan Temple, and Ubud. In addition, they will be meeting with the yoga community in Yogyakarta and Bali.
Yogyakarta and Bali are known for their yoga retreats and are very active in hosting yoga-related activities. In the past two years Yogyakarta has been hosting the national yoga festival attended by thousands of people, while Bali has held yoga festival since 2008.
The program is expected to place Indonesia in the map of international yoga tours and attract American tourist to visit Indonesia. Think yoga trip, think Wonderful Indonesia!
