7 Days How are you really? Oceanside Yoga Retreat in Beautiful Bali

Bali Yoga Retreat in Indonesia

Before you start to read about what this meditation, mindfulness, and yoga retreat actually is, stop, close your eyes, take three slow deep breaths and then ask yourself: "How am I really?" Just sit with the response for a few moments!

Doesn't it feel wonderful to take a few sacred seconds of your day to make it all about you? So really, how are you? If the answer is "not as good as I can be", whether it is on a spiritual, physical, or emotional level, then let yourself discover techniques to help change how you feel.

On the other hand, if you feel "I'm on top of the world, the best I've ever been". Congratulations! Give yourself a well-earned rest in paradise and practice how to retain those positive, happy feelings, and share them with others.

Accommodation

The spacious rooms sit lazily in their luscious, well established gardens, thus providing a wonderful and tranquil area which is literally 20 steps from the beach. The beautiful Balinese style rooms have a fan & fresh hot water showers. They are completely private rooms and most have A/C as standard. As guests of the retreat, you will have full and exclusive use of the fantastic yoga studio, which is situated almost at the waters edge and has quite possibly the best studio view in Bali. The onsite amenities are of a very high standard as you would expect. The restaurant serves the most gorgeous food and is ideally positioned next to the pool, a perfect place to eat, lounge and plunge during free time! We have many variations of accommodation ranging from 1 person, couples & families right through to large groups so if you have a particular requirement please do not hesitate in contacting us so we can discuss room arrangements and of course rates and discounts.

Program

This retreat is specifically designed for beginners and intermediates of any age or gender but of course, everyone is welcome! Let Sarah guide you through Hatha, Vinyasa, Fly-High and Yin inspired yoga classes in their breathtaking, ocean front, Balinese style yoga shala. Along the way you will discover other techniques such as meditation and mindfulness, as well as looking at the chakras and Ayurveda to deepen your understanding of how you really are. You will listen to the natural rhythms of nature, especially the ocean, from the moment you rise until the moment it lullabies you to sleep. The peaceful atmosphere reminds you to find and follow your own gentle flow and to relax and unwind on the mystical island of Bali.
