About this trip

Come experience a truly wonderful journey into the spiritual and human aspects of Yoga and adventure. This retreat is an event designed for a limited number of Yogi’s who are eager to further their practice, the spiritual path of a yogi, and enjoy all that the beautiful island of Bali has to offer. 


There will be twice daily yoga classes available for yogi’s of all levels as well as offerings of 3 specialized workshops and two full day-trips to explore not only the island of Bali but the oceans around it as well. A full breakdown is listed below. 


You will have a shuttle transfer service from your hotel/airport to the venue and transfer service to return to your hotel of choice/airport on the day of checkout from the venue. There will be three meals per day included: All you can eat breakfast, an amazing lunch, and a communal dinner all with Vegan/Vegetarian options available for each beautiful human that attends.  

 

The Yoga

Hatha based with a focus on breath, body, mind, and spirit alignment. Morning ceremonies will feature a 30-minute guided meditation and breathwork to help you focus your mind and spirit for the journey each day in addition to yoga targeted to get the blood flowing. There will also be beach sessions to bring you closer to the Earth and Sea, helping you ground the body and teaching you how to allow the mind to flow like the water that supports life. Nighttime classes will offer both Yin/Moon-based movements that will calm the mind and body and relax the nervous system bringing you into a state of peace that will allow you to let go and relax for the nights' rest to come. Special sessions of Yoga Nidra will also be offered.

The Workshops

 

Workshop 1 - This workshop is both art-based and writing based. Delving into the minds' ability to release through prompted journaling and artistic creation. There have been numerous studies on the benefits of both art creation and journaling. The workshop will be designed so that you will learn how to create a journal (if you are not already using one), find prompts for writing within your daily life that allows you to journal freely, and will show you how the simple art of doodling is your subconscious minds way of releasing thoughts and feelings onto paper. 


Workshop 2 - Designed and implemented by my amazing friends Miranda and Rory, this workshop is a journey deeper into human connection, with ourselves and those around us. This workshop is for both men and women and will be focused on the connections we create on a daily basis. With silent affirmation ceremonies and a lecture on Tantra, the workshop will allow you to develop a deeper understanding of your own desires, thoughts, and feelings while also showing you how you can truly connect with your partner, your family, your friends, and strangers. 


Workshop 3 -"Flow" is a unique concept in our daily lives and our ability to be more fluid in everything that we do. Whether it is our practice, our meditation, or our path through this world. When we practice fluidity we are more capable of handling events and stressors that bombard us each day. Whether it is the inconsiderate driver or the boss who yells at the staff constantly, having a fluid mindset and practice allows you to recover quickly without allowing static processes to build up in your body which will eventually lead to traumatic outbursts, depression, or anger.  Be sure to bring a notebook, there will be some amazing concepts presented at this workshop that you will want to take away with you!

It is my goal here at Walkabout Yoga to not only assist you with Yoga, Meditation, and your Spiritual journey in this life but to also assist you in finding ways to adventure in this world. To see the world with your own eyes and to experience life with your own heart. This world is such a beautiful and amazing place, and I hope to one day see you out in it! “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” ~ Buddha
