Ambuja Yoga would like to invite you to join us for a weeklong yoga retreat on the magical island of Bali. We’re hosting our yoga retreat at Sarinbuana Ecolodge, Bali’s best kept secret. Sarinbuana has the back to nature that all of our yoga retreats do with all of the luxuries and thoughtful details of a small Balinese ecolodge. We hope that you’ll join us in Bali as we celebrate all of life’s abundance through twice daily yoga, discussions about yogic philosophy, asana workshops, hikes and swimming in nature, and immersion into local culture through seva, temple visits, and participating in Balinese traditions. This week is all about you and your personal journey. Take a week to nurture YOU, to celebrate YOU, and give yourself the much deserved attention you need. You will have plenty of opportunity to reduce stress (how does a massage sound?), deepen your yoga practice, jumpstart a healthy and balanced diet and lifestyle AND make new lifelong friends.
Autumn Adams will guide the group through twice daily yoga practices. Each morning will begin with a sunrise yoga session to wake our bodies. You will refine your practice by delving deeper into bandhas, breath, mudras, meditation, yoga nidra, and yogic philosophy as the week progresses. Autumn's intuitive hands-on adjustments will guide you into an alignment that works for your body. Be prepared to make breakthroughs in your yoga practice and learn something new.
Evening yoga sessions will be more restorative in nature focusing on releasing deep, habitual patterns of holding and releasing fatigue and stress. Evening classes will also include guided meditation or yoga nidra.
In addition daily yoga you will have the opportunity to explore Balinese culture. This retreat includes an hour long Balinese massage, a cooking class or temple offering class, and a trek to Batu Karu Temple. Ambuja Yoga has also arranged an afternoon of seva (community service). Our afternoon of seva is a fun event, that allows you to connect with the local community on a deeper level while exchanging knowledge and friendship. This is a day that we always look forward to.
There are many opportunities for exploration near Sarinbuana Ecolodge. You could learn about medicinal herbs/plants, go for a trek, swim in the swimming holes, explore the local community, learn how to give a Balinese massage…. the possibilities are endless. Autumn will also be available for private yoga lessons in the bamboo bale.
Sarinbuana is the sweetest little eco-lodge in Bali by far...the grounds are perfectly lanscaped with exotic plants that celebrate the magic of the island. The ambiance, the location, the staff, the food is all divine. Sarinbuana is the perfect place to unwind, delve deeper into your yoga practice, and to celebrate nature and its abundance without any outside distractions. Farm to table meals served by the always smiling staff will nourish your body and soul. There are nearby swimming holes to dip into in the afternoon and plenty of places to lounge about.
Interested in learning more about Balinese culture? The local villagers will be happy to teach you how to make temple offerings, learn about local cuisine, temple rituals, etc. The majority of Sarinbuana’s staff come from the local village and you can tell. It is one tight-knit family full of love and laughter. The rooms at Sarinbuana all have fantastic views of lush Balinese hillsides, landscaping or views out toward the city lights of Denpasar in the distance.
