Bali Luxury NYE Yoga Retreat
Bali Luxury New Year’s Eve Yoga Retreat 6 days/5 nights.
Be inspired for a healthy start for 2013! Join us for a wonderful week of Yoga and healing in a peaceful and serene Balinese environment. This retreat is designed for guests to de-stress and rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. Feel yourself become physically stronger, increase flexibility and be nurtured by a range of complimentary spa treatments! After a busy year this is your special time just for yourself to relax, yet feel invigorated and enjoy!
The focus will be to re-connect with yourself as well as connecting with Balinese culture. These retreats attract many people traveling alone which creates a nice camaraderie with others during the week. 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. But perhaps the biggest part of attending a yoga health retreat is simply changing your daily habits. By temporarily pulling yourself back from your social community, it also gives you a chance to evaluate your life and bring on positive lifestyle changes.
About the Yoga Our yoga and meditation classes are taught by highly qualified Yoga Teachers and are taught according to the group level with health, age and lifestyle fully considered. All levels of experience are welcome and an assistant is present in each session to guide students new to yoga and give adjustments to more experienced yogis. Some props are used to help with alignment and to gently open the body to deeper levels of relaxation.
Ubud is famous as the artistic and cultural heart of Bali. There are many art museums to see traditional and modern paintings. The Ubud people are warm and friendly and many are painters, dancers, musicians and carvers. The cool weather in the hill is perfect for nature walks, or visit the monkey forest or the colourful markets with their bright and typically Balinese crafted stalls.The retreat is surrounded by beautiful rice paddies in a quiet and peaceful environment yet very close to shops, fabulous restaurants, affordable day spas, galleries and temples to visit in your free time. Do as little or as much as you like!
What a great week with a terrific group of people and Steve was an inspirational Yoga group leader! This has been a great opportunity to learn to listen to my body, learn about it, respect it and understand what works for me. Steve is a great Yoga Teacher and made the experience engaging, inspiring, fun and connects on a deeply profound level. Thank you!! Tracey Bain, Transformation Manager
Fantastic! Great introductory for being a beginner. Steve was patient! I really liked his teaching style.
Absolutely brilliant yoga which Steve tailored to each person. As a newcomer to yoga I found it very informative and challenging with Steve instructing me the whole time. It also flowed very well into each sequence which made it a great workout. Margaret, Event Manager, Marketing

Bali Luxury Yoga Retreat Program
The morning yoga sessions is a Vinyasa flow style where postures are linked in a flowing sequence working with the breath. This helps to strengthen the body, promotes flexibility and restores balance. The afternoons are a time for inner reflection with a restorative and relaxation practice, often incorporating a Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). Restorative yoga is very beneficial for healing the effects of chronic stress when you practiced regularly.
During the retreat we will participate in cultural activities i.e. trip to Mount Batur then cycle down through villages, meeting the locals with a tour guide all the way back to Ubud. Takes approx 3-4hrs. A fantastic experience to get a taste of the Balinese way of life. A Balinese Priest will perform an Offerings to the Gods ceremony to bless the group and to clear the energy of our yoga space.
There is plenty of time to relax, use the day spa and to stroll and shop around Ubud or visit many of the art galleries.
