'Finding Strength through Relaxation' - Yoga Retreat Bali
Strength comes in many shapes and forms. There is a secret strength hidden in deep relaxation and surrender, as well as in a challenging asana sequence.
During this retreat, Natascha Kiessler and Monique Buder guide you through energetic morning practices that connect you to the strength that lies in action, while guiding you into deep relaxation and recovery in the afternoon classes. The balance between the two is where the transformation lies and where space is created for you to find the strength and guidance needed to follow your own path.
Staying at the award-winning retreat center Floating Leaf, you will feel nourished and taken care off. The care and joy from the entire staff at the resort are what impressed us the most last year and will make you feel right at home! The vegetarian meals are simply delicious and you get to enjoy them three times a day. Sleeping in comfortable, luxurious rooms with beautiful views of the rice fields and the sea allow you to wake up to the beauty of the island every day again.
In between classes, there is plenty of time for you to go to the beach, relax by the pool, read a book or explore the area. In the middle of the week, we visit the beautiful Tirta Water Temple for a traditional purification ritual and you have time to explore the popular town of Ubud. If you want to experience a deeper healing, Floating Leaf also arranges appointments with traditional Balinese healers.
Yoga, nature, culture and a spirituality that is visible and sensible all around the island, come together to create a retreat that allows you to come home to your true strength.
