I invite you to join us on this amazing soul adventure to Bali as we visit the magical and enchanting island of Bali. We have arranged a very special yoga immersion retreat and cultural tour of this sacred island to experience the true spirit of this land. Maestro Jim Beckwith will be joining us as a special guest musician and we have teamed up with Bali Hati tours who have been operating unique personal tours to Bali for over 20 years. We have a limited amount of rooms reserved at the beautiful, old school Ananda Cottages in Ubud, if you would like to join us, please see below for more information.
Imagine yourself in Bali on retreat :)
Relaxing into your beautiful and peaceful room and taking in the warm healing Bali air and atmosphere. During the retreat there will be daily yoga, meditation, chanting and breathwork. We will also have live music and Saul will share teachings each day on the theme of healing with elements. The yoga sessions will focus on supporting and awakening the energetic and spiritual heart as well as developing the flow of Prana ( life energy) in the body. Classes are open to all levels and students will be supported where they are. Saul’s classes and programs are known for their focus on devotion, healing and Spirit.
Each day we will make special visits to sacred and cultural sites around the island, including water temples, shrines and beautiful natural settings. Our tour guides have been living on Bali for over 20 years and are able to show us the heart of the island.
