Merasa, Indonesian for ‘to feel’, invites you to discover a path to wellness that is uniquely yours; to intuitively feel the needs of your body and mind.

Doing things the Potato Head way, we honour the philosophy of duality within Balinese culture – embracing both peace and pleasure – to gently guide you towards a natural inner balance. Wellness is not a destination but an ongoing journey. And we’re here to meet you wherever you are along the way.

All visitors to the Desa are welcome to enjoy our classes. For guests of Potato Head Suites and Studios, most group classes are complimentary. Anyone else wishing to join can do so by contributing a donation.
