"As a world-traveller native to Bali, Madé Janur Yasa embodies Eastern philosophy blended with Western sensibility. Certified in Somatic Coaching and leadership training, his long-studied practice of Aikido has remained the physical metaphor underpinning his studies and his teaching. He has found that the tenets of his Balinese cultural heritage have likewise reinforced his interest in and comprehension of Somatic, as both share similar wisdom that views body and mind as inseparable rather than dualistic.
Moksa, plant-based restaurant and permaculture garden, his co-creation with an executive chef, Madé Runatha, has likewise enabled Janur to pursue his passion for the environment, sustainability and community. Ignited by the immediate economic crash due to Covid19 and the environmental crisis already plaguing his native island, he has of late embarked on an initiative to educate and empower people to prosper through a barter program that provides sustenance in exchange for collecting non-organic waste, while cleaning the environment."
