BALI YOGA RETREAT & BALI MEDITATION RETREAT
Gili Air, Indonesia
On the magical island of Gili Air this seven day 'True Nature' meditation and yoga retreat provides the opportunity to slow down and reconnect with your core essence, creating space for inner stillness and reflection.
No previous experience in either field is required; this retreat will provide a meaningful experience for everyone; beginners and advanced yogis alike. Sunrise and sunset meditations on the Islands shores will complement your yoga asana practice and pave the way for our journey of 'inter-being', a feeling of connection with everyone and everything.
The daily morning practice is designed to provide the participants with an opportunity to develop a yoga / meditation practice which can be continued to use on return home. Golden times of silence will be for reflection of the year that is to pass and the year that lies ahead, giving clarity and a positive new direction.
It must be emphasized that we do not use meditation to withdraw from society, but to re-charge and connect with our spirit - the essence of who we really are. Then when we stand up from our silent sitting and interact with others - this is when the real meditation begins! This is where the fruits of our efforts will be rewarded as we maintain our 'air' of peacefulness and share that with those around us.
Within the idyllic island setting of Gili Air, we will connect with the elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air - feeling the ocean breeze, soaking up fresh prana, swimming with turtles - attuning our vibration with mother Earth and father Sky.
Join us at the H2O Bali Retreat Center for this unique spiritual retreat in Paradise.
