Ubud Bali Yoga Retreat 2020
Mar 28 - Apr 03
Determine Your Direction
You’re a little lost. Perhaps overwhelmed, exhausted and rarely permitted the time to do something that is JUST FOR YOU. Everyone demands your attention and you’re beginning to feel depleted. Energetically. Emotionally. Mentally.
Well - that is all about to change. This retreat is the perfect opportunity for you to relax and unwind.
In a world that has glorified and collectively subscribed to the idea that only a busy life is a worthwhile or meaningful one, it is easy to get caught up in the game of ‘do more, be more, have more’. But is this really making us happy? Is this really what we want for ourselves? And are the health consequences worth it?
The moment you give your tired, busy mind some time to rest, you make space for the creative juices to flow. To feel reinvigorated and inspired. Which is exactly what this week in paradise will offer. A chance to reconnect, re-purpose and perhaps even redesign your life.
During your luxury week away, you will lose yourself in twice daily yoga practices on the rooftop studio, nurture your body with delicious and nutrient packed food and take lots of time out for yourself. Swim in the infinity pool, read that book you never manage to find time for, or indulge in an afternoon nap. You may even like to enjoy a sneaky glass of wine or cocktail as you bask in the Balinese sun.
The Ultimate Luxury
Your home for the week is the stunning Soulshine Bali, a private paradise set deep within the jungle of Ubud.
Described as a “truly magical place where transformation happens” - Soulshine Bali will take your breath away.
The Yoga - Hatha + Yin
Your day will begin with a relaxing sunrise meditation before practice, to help focus your mind, direct your thoughts and prepare you for your day.
The Yoga will be an energizing Hatha class in the morning and a cleansing Yin Yoga practice in the evening to set you up for a restful night’s sleep.
All of our classes will be progressive over the week so you will leave feeling refreshed and with a noticeable change in your personal practice.
