A note from Elena
Our little yoga oasis on the island of Gods as Balinese lovingly refer to their home, is a place I’ve been coming back to for years. It has something extremely special about it, something that needs to be experienced to be comprehended.I feel truly blessed and cared for when I’m in this simple and beautiful place. From the kindness, authenticity and integrity of the staff and therapists to the way the cleaning lady arranges fresh flowers in the bathroom and on my bed every morning – everything makes you feel warm and safe.
I love how animals are interacting with humans so naturally here – baby chickens stealing grains of rice from the offerings on the altar in the yoga shala, dolphins saying hello to the day as they jump out of the waves at sunrise, a cat family savouring the sunshine on the lawn among the palm trees, the gecko that announces his presence by stopping by our yoga and meditation class in the evenings and endless serenades of the birds.
Let yourself rest and immerse into the sweet essence and healing energy of the island, nourish yourself with sun ripened fruits and veggies, delicious spa treatments, the ocean and the mountains, as you deepen your yoga and meditation practice. We can’t wait to welcome you here.
In this yoga retreat we will be staying in a beautiful retreat centre on a mountain overlooking the ocean.
In Bali, mountains symbolize humanity’s relationship with Creation. Here, the earth elements of nature combine with the vitality of the island to create an environment where you can reconnect with yourself and nature.
This yoga retreat is an invitation to deepen your understanding of yoga and meditation, whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner. Yoga retreat is a holiday that nourishes you on many different levels – physical, mental and emotional, recharging you and helping to attune to the vibration of radiant health. Daily yoga and meditation classes during the retreat create a great foundation for consistent and joyful practice and help you feel more open, strong and balanced.
Bali an island in Indonesia, an exceptional place on Earth that is full of prana, vitality, abundant with sun soaked fresh fruits and vegetables, abundant with joy and rich in spiritual tradition. You will be amazed how many shades of green exist on the island.
