WHO CAN COME ?
This retreat is for EVERYONE! If you are new to yoga or have an advanced practice, if you have been making art your whole life, or you are simply an art lover. Marlene and Tara have years of experience teaching and have something to offer all students. And, if you just want to travel and choose not to participate in the yoga and art classes, our journey will be full of plenty of opportunities to make new friends and great memories.
WHAT WILL I LEARN ?
Our Yoga and Art retreat uniquely combines these two disciplines. You will deepen and fine tune your asana practice or begin a new practice. You will open yourself to new forms of creative expression and a learn something about making art without fear. Early mornings will begin with meditation followed by a yoga practice and breakfast. Before our fun-filled day out, we will gather for our art practice, which will focus on the creation of an ART JOURNAL. Here we will capture our experiences and impressions of Bali along with anything else you would like to spill onto the page. And finally, you will learn something about how to be more JOYFUL AND BLISSFUL about anything you do.
WHERE WILL WE STAY ?
Our group of 14 will be staying at two beautiful Eco Retreat centers. The first 5 nights will be spent in Nyuh Kuning, a quiet small wood carving village adjacent to Ubud. Our traditional teak Balinese bungalows at Swast Eco Cottages ( baliswasti.com ) are a 5 minute walk from the center of Ubud and its rich yoga and art community. Each shared bungalow is fitted with fans and mosquito nets, outdoor tropical bathrooms and private gardens and terraces along with a pool and organic restaurant on the property. We will then travel by private bus two hours to the slopes of MT Batukaru, where the rice paddies meet the jungle. Here nestled away in a beautiful natural setting, our exclusive group will unwind, rejuvenate and be inspired. At Bali Eco Stay ( baliecostay.com ) our home will be shared beautiful traditional bungalows with private baths. Each one constructed to blend with the mountain environment and stunning rice paddy and ocean views. For 5 nights, our group will have Bali Eco stay resort all to ourselves to enjoy the fresh water rock pool and organic restaurant in complete peace.
