This retreat is scheduled during the time of the SuperMoon.
What is a Super Full Moon?

The distance of the moon from the Earth varies throughout the month and year. The moon’s position furthest from Earth is referred to as “apogee”, while its closest approach is named “perigee”. These events do not coincide with the phases of the moon. However, at very special times, it can transpire that the moon is at perigee during the full moon.

Astronomically speaking, this rare event is called, “perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system”. Colloquially, this extraordinary occurrence is referred to as The Super Full Moon or Super Moon. In Bali it is huge, luminous and spectacular.

Floating Leaf’s “Ultimate Relaxation Pool” was created in part to be an amphitheater to witness the moonrise and soak in its energy. Hand sculpted, in-pool lounges facilitate epic moon-bathing. And no night is more powerful or spiritually charged than the Super Full Moon.

Your Personal Yoga and Happiness Teacher

Your personal guide and teacher will be Floating Leaf’s Head Yoga Instructor, Pak Eka Sukma Putra. Pak Eka is a native Balinese and comes from our own village of Sukawati. Pak Eka teaches yoga with grace, humor and a deep knowledge of the tradition and the healing power of Yoga.

Yoga Teacher Eka
Pak Eka is considered one of the preeminent yoga instructors of Bali and provides a truly personal experience for balance, growth and wellness.

Pak Eka’s aim is to restore harmony and wellness through a three-fold path of physical, mental and spiritual practices. His style is rooted in Hatha Yoga, traditional Balinese healing, and Pranayama. He is approachable, gentle and a gifted healer. In addition to traditional methods of Balinese healing and wellness, Eka is also a Certified Mind Healer (Ambar Institute).

Despite being the first son in a family of respected healers and teachers including I Nyoman Rajem and Ni Wyan Sariasih, Eka did not fully commit to yoga right away. Decades ago, Eka developed some health problems. His spiritual leader advised him to adopt the practice of Yoga more seriously. Diligently, and with conviction, he practiced Yoga, meditation, self-healing and fire walking with Made Suambara (Ambar Ashram). His life was transformed, he was healthy, inspired and dedicated to helping others.
