Join renowned yogi + Blissologist, Eoin Finn on EcoKarma Bali—a coral restoration mission that is a part of in the Blissology Yoga 200-Hr Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training but anyone interested in ocean stewardship can join!
What to expect
We are so intimately connected to the ocean—every tear and every drop of sweat comes and goes from the ocean; every second breath we take is produced by the plankton in our Oceans. Yet, the ocean is in incredible trouble. Today coral reefs around the world are in danger—some estimates show that approximately 10% of the world’s coral reefs are dead and about 60% of the world’s reefs are at risk due to human-related activities. By the 2030s, 90% of reefs are expected to be at risk from both human activities and climate change.
As yogis and people who care for all living beings and our planet, we believe that it’s time we step up and be a part of the change, which is why we’re heading to Les in Bali to work with LINI and help restore the coral reef.
Please note: This is a non-profit event. All proceeds will cover costs for participation and directly fund coral reef restoration projects. Your registration is considered a donation to this event and is non-refundable should you decide to cancel.
About the location
For the past 4 years, Blissology has been cultivating a relationship with LINI—an organisation that is dedicated to the development of community-based marine conservation areas to promote sustainable fisheries in Indonesia. It is a huge cause as much of Indonesia has been overfished for decades. LINI’s Aquaculture and Training Centre in Les, Bali is where we will be staying and where all the activities will happen, including meals.
LINI’s accommodation is built for volunteers to stay on site. They are simple rooms with a fan and 2 single beds. Each bungalow has 3 rooms, 1.5 bathrooms and a common shared space with balcony. Please remember that all proceeds for staying on-site go directly to funding coral reef restoration projects. For this event, to raise funds for LINI, part of our goal is to fill up on-site accommodation before booking elsewhere.
1. Can I bring a friend, partner etc?
Yes! This event is open to the public however space is limited. If you are travelling with a family member or have special needs, email us at email@example.com and we’ll let you know about options.
2. How do I get there?
We will share taxis or shuttles from Canggu to Les (return travel included in the price). However if you are coming from another part of the island, you do not have to meet us in Canggu. If there are multiple people coming from a different location, we might organise a taxi departing/arriving from/to that location.
3. Where will we eat?
They have a small kitchen on site for meals and will do their best to accommodate our dietary needs. Please be patient with the local women who work in their kitchen as our group is the largest that they have hosted and they must travel a bit far to purchase all the food for our group.
