Pre-festival retreat: Your Yoga – a Personal Practice

From March 19 – 28

This unique pre-festival retreat includes private yoga sessions to help develop and refine your personalized yoga practice, bringing together a number of yoga traditions depending on your needs.

In group yoga classes we sometimes find ourselves practicing asana, yoga styles, sequences and breathing exercises that are not always best suited to own health needs, stress levels or personal growth goals. Combining group and private classes with workshops, this retreat will give you the skills to practice intelligent yoga poses with possible modifications during group led classes, and more importantly you will develop the tools to support your self-practice, perhaps making you less dependent on attending classes in order to do yoga.

At this retreat you will have an option to extend your stay for 4 more nights so that you can attend the Bali Spirit Festival! The BaliSpirit Festival, takes place from Wednesday night March 23 – Sunday March 27: it is an annual celebration of yoga, dance and music. Tickets can be bought on their website.
