Yoga Retreat

Yoga Retreats are a rare treat I like to indulge when time allows.

Currently I am organizing two 5 day/4 nights retreats on Bali. 
I like to focus on inner and outer well-being and hence my retreats integrate a lot non physical classes as well to keep the balance right.

What awaits you

some more details


The Retreat starts in the afternoon of the arrival day with welcome and orientation before your first yoga session by the pool. You will finish your journey on the last day after a final session of yoga and a leisurely breakfast before you get ready to depart.
An extra nights stay can always be arranged at time of booking.

There will be two asana (posture) based classes a day. The style will be Hatha taking a more invigorating form in the morning and a gentle finish in the evening stretching the body out for a good evening rest.

Apart from the physical postures you will be immersed in the more supple aspects of yoga that will help you find a new appreciation for its way of life. 

Deeply relax in yoga nidra (yogic sleep) as your whole body is talked through relaxation ques and the mind is taken on an inner journey.

With mantra chant you'll find a new way to turn inwards. Maybe not everyone can sing but certainly everyone can chant. The sounding of the ancient sanskrit words create vibrations that harmonize the bodies energies and give a greater sense of connection. 

Guided meditations/visualizations takes the mind on a journey, while the body relaxes. It can help in finding new energy, strength or just blissful calm. Often creating scenarios that the mind can retreat to again and again to allow relief from stress. 

We will also talk about the 8 limbs of yoga during the retreat which will be a simple introduction to yogic philosophy. Bringing to mind that yoga is a holistic system of mind, body and spirit, of which none should be neglected. 

What awaits you

This yoga retreat is a wonderful opportunity to connect with yourself and let you disconnect from your otherwise busy life.

Take the time to engage with nature in the Land of eternal spring and take this time to do something different instead of stressing about cooking or family.

The Retreat starts on the arrival afternoon (arrival between 2pm and 4pm) however early arrivals may leave their luggage and find their way to our local Café. 

There will be a welcome and orientation before your first yoga session at 5pm.

For the moment our accommodation is located in the main venue Jardín Campo Alegre. In Campo Alegre we have 5 beautiful little cabañas with individual ensuite bathrooms giving you the space you need. 
 

There will be on each full day two asana (posture) based classes a day consisting of aerial yoga and Hatha yoga. Friday this itinerary will vary. 

On Wednesday and Thursday we spend the afternoon with coffee/tea and Easter egg painting and/or the making of a labyrinth.

You cannot miss Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala. Specially being as close as you will be during our retreat. That's why on our last day, Friday, after a quick breakfast at 8:00 AM (please have your things ready to check out of the rooms) we will take you to the Colonial City of Antigua.

In La Antigua you'll be able to explore and see the famous carpets and processions.

On this day there will be no morning class.
