The cozy Mango Bungalow is an adorable, craftsman house. The bungalow itself was just as beautiful in person. I found it to be very cozy and it had everything I needed. The room and bathroom were clean and cosy. The bungalow had lots of light and green garden views.
Communication with Therese was also spot on; she was available for any issue that came up and responded immediately.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a very "Ubud" experience. Thanks again, Therese and Ioannis!

About the Host, Therese
Therese Poulsen is a mid wife, a Dr of acupuncture, a Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, and the founder of "Breath of Hope Foundation Inc" & Satyagraha Ashram for children.
A Journey of Heart into the Souls of Children.
I Love to make a difference in the lives of children. Breath of Hope Foundation was founded to fulfill this vision using the grounding signs of nature and the ancient science of yoga, which through BOH programs has created a network of hope for children and communities in South East Asia, in responding to requests and fielding interest in other parts of the world as well.
I Love the nature, Loving kindness and care. My children and my animals and the great sacred teachings.
I love the Sea, riding horses, skiing and running—my deep passion for yoga and its discipline complimented and supported deeper and profound experience, as well as gave great support to life's challenges and demands. As a dedicated Eastern medicine practitioner and with my science background and with my great passion and curiosity for answers of life brought me to have great desire to work hands-on with people.
The Breath of Hope Foundation, Inc. (BOH), is a not-for-profit international organization that fosters empowerment and transformation in at-risk children and communities through a therapeutic intervention of yoga, meditation and philosophy. In collaboration with educators and researchers BOH is advancing knowledge of the benefits of yoga and promoting integrative healing and resiliency for trauma-affected children and other populations. Its educational and training curriculum is designed to rekindle hope and peace in at-risk children through school/community based yoga programs that stimulate a ripple effect from the child to the family, school and beyond.
BOH has conducted extensive re¬search in Indonesia and in Sri Lanka with victims of the 2004 tsunami, generating scientific evidence for the benefits of yoga to children and communities. The studies have established that as self-awareness of the mind-body connection is heightened, overall physical and mental health also improves, circulation and blood chemistry are boosted, and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems recover their equilibrium. Benefits to the psychological development of children include increased concentration and creativity. Their enhanced social development is reflected in a greater receptivity, sense of gratitude and generosity, and a new willingness to trust.
BOH is the seed in which Satyagraha Ashram for children was born.
“Satyagraha” is a synthesis of the Sanskrit words “Satya” (truth) and “Agraha” (holding firm), and it was characterized by Mahatma Gandhi in his peace movement. Satyagraha is culturally sensitive; we continuously research within the culture to see how we can serve in the best possible way.
Satyagraha Ashram’s vision is to provide children with tools, which offer them a view into healthy and self-sustaining lifestyles, manifesting love and respect for the planet. At Satyagraha we are equally committed to humanity and nature. This remarkable school for organic living is nestled within the village of Nyuh Kuning, Ubud, Bali. It is surrounded by beautiful old Blanggog trees; rivers run through the grounds, and the serenity of the landscape insulates Satyagraha from the bustle of traffic and tourism in nearby Ubud.
The Ashram garden contains an organic vegetable plot to provide the children hands-on experience of how to manifest pesticide-free nourishment, as well as a herbal apotek. A large com¬posting area recycles organic waste, and the Ashram’s three happy cows do their own recycling by mowing the grass, which they trans¬form into milk, and into dung for fertilizer. Satyagraha has donated two pieces of land to the village for growing flowers that are used by the local women for temple offerings, to support the old traditional Balinese culture. In serving one another the villagers help care for our gardens at Satyagraha. A beautiful yoga shala made of bamboo provides a platform for yoga practice, in which people of all ages from nearby areas participate.
Fundraising is an integral part of any not for profit organization. Therese Poulsen has thus far, used much of her own capital to stabilize the projects and conduct research. A key part of the Ashram however, is Lila Bamboo Villa - a traditional Balinese Wantilan bamboo villa with three stories - magnificent and luxurious, though thoroughly soulful. The villa was specifically built to be rented for private vacations, reunions, or small conferences and seminars. All the revenues from the rentals provide funding for the foundation’s work. Lila Bamboo is one of Indonesia’s tallest Wantilan structures. The traditional architecture utilizes sustainable materials: bamboo, palm leaves, alang alang, and local river stones. The interiors feature exceptional pieces of Balinese local wood and stone craftsmanship.
