Shala

7 soulful nights in

Bali

4 - 11 FEBRUARY, 2023

Introduction

Adventure deep into your practice on the Island of the Gods: Bali.

Steeped deep in Hindu tradition and Indonesian culture, immerse yourself in the sacred connection of body and mind in tropical island heaven. This will be a less 'structured' retreat with a yoga class to start and end the day, the rest of the time will be for you to relax and explore at your own leisure. We will be staying in a beautiful eco luxury villa featuring traditional Javanese Joglo houses crafted out of recycled teak wood. Located close to the clifftops and white sand beaches of the Southern tip of the island, enjoy twice daily yoga and incredible buffet breakfasts & Balinese dinners. 

We have a large open-air yoga shala to wake up and practice Vinyasa in the morning, and cool down in the dusky light of the evenings to practice cooling Yin. The property has a large pool surrounded by sun beds for you to laze upon, and an onsite massage room to treat yourself in.With only a 7 minute walk to the beach, take daily trips to the white sand coast and enjoy some vitamin sea.

Yoga

On this retreat, Faye (@wildestyoga) will be teaching dynamic vinyasa yoga, workshops and healing yin, with her fabulous assistant and teacher from ILUMA YOGA STUDIO: Colette Alderson (@earthtone.yoga). This retreat will not be total beginners yoga, but new students are more than welcome but be prepared to dive in the deep end. The practice will be strong vinyasa, flows with fluidity and playfulness: expect laughs and a lot of sweat!

Each day begins in silence with optional meditation or to enjoy a cup of herbal tea and tune in to the sounds of Bali's nature waking up alongside you. Following this will be an intense 90 minute vinyasa practice overlooking the pool, with lots of chances to explore challenging poses and get you ready for the rest of the day. As always, we will also be finding new ways to explore pranayama (breath work) and meditation, experimenting with different styles throughout the week.

Afternoons on this retreat will be focused mainly on guests relaxing and choosing to explore on their own accord. But a couple of days will have workshops such as confidence with inversions and Acroyoga.

 

Closing off each day we will ground down with earthy yin as day to turns to night.

On a couple of evenings we will gather together to explore lineages such as Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) & sound healing.

BREAKFAST (vegan)

Fresh fruit platter, coconut yoghurt, smoothie bowls, pancakes, scrambled tofu, breakfast burritos, french toast, coffee & teas, fresh fruit juices.

LUNCH  (not included)

To have the opportunity to sample the local food and area, guests can just walk out of the villa and find incredible cafes and restaurants serving both local cuisine and western health foods. Think smoothies, Açai bowls, vegan icecreams, buddha bowls, salad bars, and local Warungs (small family owned local eateries).

Dinner (vegan)

For dinner, expect an array of delicious Indonesian and modern Asian dishes such as: Tempe, satay, tofu, noodles, vegtables, curries, rice dishes, gado-gado, pad thai, sushi, raw salads, soups and so much more!
