During this retreat we will work with the elements of earth, water, fire and air. By exploring on how the elements work together in our body & mind and learn how to balance them and create space in the body and stillness in the mind so we can listen to our inner voice.
Each day we will focus on a different element. The daily yoga practices will emphasize on grounding, flowing, burning and breathing to connect us to the different elements as vital parts of our yoga practice and daily life.
Bali is a great place to really get close with the elements of nature. During the retreat we have different activities such as nature walks in the mountains, meditation at the beach and ceremonies to fully experience the elements and enjoy the island and its highlights.
