BALI YOGA RETREAT
Bali YOGA Retreat
A Brene Brown inspired Retreat
A retreat where our focus will lie in courageous living, wholehearted living.
I first read Brene Brown's book "Daring Greatly" 4 years ago and it has since then been a daily inspiration. The book has given me a baseline for many lessons and workshops and it is time to facilitate a retreat upon her extremely inspirational reseach about vulnerability and courageaous living.
We will more specifically dive into wholehearted living. How do we live in our hearts and what resides there? What does it mean to live wholeheartedly? How do we gather courage enough to stand in the truth that beats in our hearts? What is holding us back from living in authenticity and with integrity?
Yoga style and philosophical baseline:
** Embodied Flow ™ **
* Creative Vinyasa Flow
* Slow Flow
We will have 2 yoga classes every day, starting 7-9.30 am. The afternoon classes 4-6 pm.
Every morning we start the day with 1 hour kriya, mantra and meditation which will flow into Embodied Flow™ inspired Vinyasa.
In the afternoon you will be served Vinyasa Flow that will move you into Yin and restorative yoga.
All lessons will have Embodied Flow™ principles and philosophy as a baseline.
Embodied Flow™ is a system of transformational yoga that invites you into the deepest sense of self. Through an integrative blend of hatha yoga, somatics, movement meditation, tantric philosophy, and transpersonal psychology it elicits the experience of stepping into flow as meditation in action.
I wish to facilitate a retreat where we open up our hearts and explore what and how we can live more wholeheartedly and authentically. We will explore as a group and you might make friends for life.
Brene Brown writes this in her book "The Gifts of Imperfection" about Wholehearted living:
1) Cultivating Authenticity; Letting Go of What People Think.
2) Cultivatiing Self-Compassion: Letting Go of Perfectionism.
3) Cultivating a Resilient Spirit: Letting Go of Numbing and Powerlessness.
4) Cultivating Gratitude and Joy: Letting Go of Scarcity and Fear of the Dark.
5) Cultivating Intuition and Trusting Faith: Letting Go of the Need for Certainty.
6) Cultivating Creativity: Letting Go of Comparison.
7) Cultivating Play and Rest: Letting Go of Exhaustion as a Status Symbol and Productivity as Self-Worth.
8) Cultivating Calm and Stillness: Letting Go of Anxiety as a Lifestyle.
9) Cultivating Meaningful Work: Letting Go of Self-Doubt and "Supposed To".
10) Cultivating Laughter, Song, and Dance: Letting Go of Being Cool and "Always in Control".
Do you love this too?
I recommend reading one of her books, choose the one that speeks to you. It is not necessary to have read one of her books to join the retreat but it will give you an advantage.
The retreat is for intermediate and advanced yoga practitioners. You need to know your ujjayi and know and be able to physically do Sun Salutations and Warriors. Write me an email if you wonder if you are qualified.
The yoga community in Hemsedal are qualified.
The ChillHouse will be our home for 7 days, our base for yoga explorations and wholehearted examinations.
They serve the most delicious organic, vegetarian and vegan meals. "We work with local ethical growers that practice methods that encourage healthy soils and biodiversity. We believe in keeping traditions alive and know that this produce provides increased nutrition to our bodies.
Except for the Herbalife Products nothing here at CASSAVA is imported from beyond Indonesia, this cuts food miles, over processing, the use of preservatives and ensures optimum freshness. Therefore you won't find wheat or almonds on our menus." Cassava, The Chillhouse.
Breakfast and dinner are included in the retreat and I advise you to go explore the amazing cafes and restaurants in Canggu for lunch. Canggu has soo many cafes and restaurants, so go explore the senses in your body through taste and smell.
Canggu is known for it's surf, chill, international culture infused with traditional culture, rise fields, green scenery and exotic and beautiful beaches.
The Chillhouse have surf-instructors and surf-rental, so let me know if you want lessons or wish to rent a board to go ride the awesome waves in Canggu between yoga sessions. Canggu has it all, beginner and advanced spots.
You can use the in-between yoga sessions to get treatments, massage, cranio-sacral, write in your diary, swim, hang out on the beach, surf, read books, bathe in the sun or go sightseeing visit waterfalls...
Use your in-betweens to expand your passion or inner serenity. Maybe ask a friend to lunch and share your experiences as to open up for more reflection and directly experience connection.
I deeply invite you to practice gratitude in your sacred in-between moments and there is no better place to practice gratitude than Bali.
