- Retreat Program
Each day you will be guided through morning meditation followed by a comfortable warm up session to prepare for the Vinyasa Yoga flow class. This is a more fluid style of yoga working with the breath to release toxins increasing strength and flexibility while paying attention to alignment in the poses. Some props are used to help the body open with ease. In the afternoons we focus on restorative yoga and inversions, yoga therapy, partner yoga, pranayama to bring balance and harmony to the mind and body. Daily meditation is integrated into the program to develop a firmer foundation to your practice.
The classes are taught in a practical and safe way according to the group level with health, age and lifestyle fully considered.
There is plenty of free time to have a nurturing massage and spa treatments, visit various temples, shopping and visit the many art galleries of Ubud. Ubud is the cultural centre of Bali, offering lots of interesting activities. The focus will be to re-connect with yourself as well as connecting with Balinese culture. Regular practice of yoga and meditation strengthens the mind and body to create an inner harmony. Daily spiritual intention naturally takes us to a deeper place within ourselves and brings more meaning into our daily lives.
