Overview

Join international yoga and meditation teacher, Marni Pogachefsky, on a 7-day rejuvenating ‘Healing Through Yoga’ retreat, crafted to offer the deepest levels of physical, emotional and energetic healing. Purify yourself in the water temple of Tirta Empul. Bathe in hot springs and indulge in a yoga class overlooking a nearby volcano. Lose yourself in Yoga Nidra and restorative Sound Baths at the Pyramids of Chi. This retreat offers you a mindful immersion into the inner self, to achieve profound holistic healing.

Marni will lead you through daily meditation and yoga practices in some of the most energetically therapeutic locations of Bali. A trained shamanic energy practitioner and yoga instructor, she incorporates her work with archetypes and energetic systems into mindful yoga flows, meditations, mantras, ceremonies, and sound bathes, for all levels, targeting relaxation and holistic healing. Each day you will be invited to explore and balance on a new element of physical and emotional healing through the chakra system, and will be supported with yoga, meditation, sound, and visits to local energy spots that correspond to the elements targeted that day. Group yoga classes will provide a safe environment to illuminate the parts of your being that long for growth and healing. In your one-on-one sessions, Marni will guide you through individualized practices and experiences to release the stories you’ve created about yourself, and unlock tools to be your own healer.

This unique opportunity to explore the self and the beautiful environment of Bali is carefully curated to enable optimal presence of mind and the deepest healing. At the end of the retreat, you will leave feeling balanced, profoundly connected to your inner wisdom, and reawakened to your fullest potential.

Three Questions for Marni Pogachefsky

Q : Why yoga?

A : For me Yoga is a holistic practice that nourishes and supports body, mind, and spirit. I grew up in a house of Yogis / Yoginis, exposed to different practices and teachers from a very young age, so in a way when I step onto my mat it feels like coming home, regardless of where I am physically in the world.

Ayurveda is believed to be the oldest healing therapy.

The therapist skillfully treats your body with an array of repetitive and slow movements such as kneading, squeezing and rubbing, resulting in the elimination of toxins and impurities. The results are unbelievably good!

A lovely experience and I learnt so much about Bali, the traditions and met so many beautiful people (staff + retreat participants). The spa facility is wonderful (I definitely made the most of it) and it was a fabulous break from a stressful job.

An experience that really helped me to open up and give myself some much needed love. Each day I further “healed” and was able to find myself and understand my needs more. It was exactly what I needed and I feel like a new person coming home with a good mindset for a new job and chapter of my life.
