I’ve been in Bali for over a week now and have come to realize that October in Bali can be a bit fickle; the weather goes from hot and sunny to gray and rainy and then back again in an instant.
Every morning, I wake up before the sun to practice yoga in the open air yoga shala and as soon as the sun starts to come out, the whole jungle below begins to come alive. I can feel the sun beating down on me and can hear all of the animals coming to life all around me. It’s hot, sticky, and teeming with energy. You literally hear and feel the island waking up: the birds are chirping, monkeys are barking and the geckos are yelling “geccckkooooo.” And it’s a beautiful and inspiring way to start the day.
And then after nearly 3 hours of yoga, meditation and beautiful sounds, we wrap for breakfast where we get to enjoy another hour or so of hot, sticky sunshine before lecture begins. Most days during lecture, the clouds begin to roll in – the sky darkens, gets even heavier and sometimes even loud and violent with rain and lightning.
We’re in an open air space all day which is both spectacular and challenging. When it’s time to get dressed. I’m often trying to figure out what to wear that I can practice yoga in when it’s hot and sticky, what to wear while sitting through lectures after the sky has darkened, and then what to put on to protect myself from mosquito happy hour.
My new prAna Devan Henley sweater has been the perfect compliment to my yoga adventure in Bali. It’s lightweight enough to throw on in the early mornings, it’s enough for the cooler, rainier afternoons and it shields me from the mosquitos that try to feast on me in the early evening hours during evening meditation.
The Devan Henley is made of a mix of organic cotton and polyester, and was made to be layered. It comes in four different colors, mineral green, vintage cobalt, winter & black and sizes XS to XL. So if you’re looking for a great layering piece and / or a perfect travel companion, head over to prAna and check out their new fall line and use code prAnaFallStyle 16 to save 15% until Oct 31.
