5 Day Zen Thai Yoga Retreat, Bali
About This Event
The Zen Thai Yoga Retreat offers yoga, meditation and an introduction to bodywork to develop an embodied understanding of how the Traditional Chinese Medicine elements (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) interact within your body.
“You will leave the retreat not only feeling amazing but equipped with the tools of Zen Thai and Yoga to maintain lasting balance in the elements of your life.” — Stef Palmer Yoga Teacher & Workshop Facilitator
- Immerse yourself in a Yoga and Zen Thai in a way you can not do in your day-to-day life
- The ideal place to unplug, slow down, and get back in touch with yourself
- Cultivate lasting peace
ScheduleWe start each day in meditating with an element (fire, earth, metal, water and wood). Following the morning meditation, we move into an elemental yoga practice that gives you an embodied understanding of the element. We will also be offering in-depth workshops introducing the tools of Zen Thai Shiatsu and Yoga Therapy to balance excesses and deficiencies of each element.
Relax, we have left time in the schedule for you to enjoy the tropical beachside location, surf white sand beaches, swim Ujung waterhole, hike Agung mountain, visit the neighbouring cacao factory or the near by palace. Jasri is a quiet gem, away from Bali’s busy tourist centres.
