Join us for a week-long cultural, yoga & movement immersion in Bali, Indonesia! We will be hosted at the serene Nirarta Centre for Living Awareness in Sidemen, Karangasem. Our retreat is an opportunity to dive deeply into self-exploration through embodiment practices. Guests will enjoy daily yoga, meditation, guided movement & relaxation practices, dance, mantra, and plenty of free time for excursions and exploration!
Nirarta aims to support the natural process of unfolding in a person’s life by helping them make changes, learn, and grow. The center offers 3 daily buffet-style meals and daily tea & coffee. “Set in a lush river valley of terraced-rice fields by tree-clad hills straddled by the imposing presence of the sacred mountain, Gunung Agung to the east of Bali,” guests will stay in spacious and tastefully furnished rooms that offer views of the rice fields, river valley, and hills, and allow one to recharge by attuning to the rhythms of nature.
Balinese spirituality believes that water is one of the great forces of life. We will experience a traditional water ceremony, included with your retreat. There are also optional opportunities to explore local culture, like working with a Balinese healer, a day hike to a volcano, attending a traditional Balinese dance performance, or hearing a Gamelan ensemble in Ubud!
Bali Yoga & Embodiment Retreat was created to foster and guide people through the transformative experience of movement and to discover one’s rich inner landscape. A big portion of each day is focused on “being” with yourself in movement. Bali Yoga & Embodiment Retreat provides space to explore the connection between body, mind, and spirit and to nourish your innate vibrant potential.
