Your teacher is an experienced senior instructor of our spa and also Ibu Indri will look after you. Ibu Indri is Balinese. She is the owner and operational director of Sekar Jagat Spa, and she trains and supervises all our therapists. At our place, you will receive firsthand knowledge of Balinese spa treatments. We have some of the best Balinese spa therapists on this island. Some of them work today in five-star hotels and overseas. You can rest assured that you get a competent guru. Ibu Indri also graduated in the international spa from CIBTAC (Confederation of International Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology) London in the subject of anatomy, physiology, body massage and spa therapy.

The course is held in English language, respectively for locals in Indonesian language. One session is 4 hours of intensive training (10:00-15:00) plus a one-hour lunch break on-site. You are free to book just one or a few sessions and decide upon arrival or after your first session, provided availability. The subjects of the course are up to you, in consultation with us.

The cost for one session is IDR2,250,000 per person, inclusive of taxes, all materials, a live model, lunch, and an award certificate that testifies your successful participation. Of course, the award certificate is not a diploma; for a diploma, you would have to study 100 – 400 hours (depending on your subjects) and pass an examination.

We charge IDR4,125,000 for two sessions and IDR5,625,000 for three sessions. Each additional session costs IDR1,875,000. There are no additional or hidden costs.

We also provide free transportation from and to your place in Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Sanur.

If you are already experienced in massage treatment, two sessions of training in Balinese massage and one session of training for each other subject might be enough to learn the basics. If you have no experience in massages but are talented, you should consider at least two or three sessions for Balinese massage and one or two sessions for each other subject.

Because we are flexible and do not gather our applicants you enjoy training in very small classes, guaranteed not more than 3 people, in fact, we usually run the course just with one or two people. If you want to book in a group we will provide additional teachers for you to keep the classes small.

The schedule is up to you, provided availability is first-come-first-served. To make a date kindly consult us, please use the inquiry form below. Let us know your professional background/massage experience, what subjects you are interested in and what date you prefer. You will get a private course tailored to your needs.
