Into the Magic
Immersive Yoga Retreat
4 – 11 APRIL 2020
Leave the April rain far behind and rejuvenate your spirit at an immersive yoga retreat on Bali, the Island of the Gods. Into the Magicis an extended retreat and immersive experience open to yoga students and teachers of all levels who are interested in deepening their practice.
With workshops and study opportunities alongside open-air practice in the delightful peace and luxurious serenity of the Desa Seni yoga resort, the retreat is a supportive and nurturing environment where you can travel further along the path at your own pace.
We’ll begin each day with meditation, pranayama and a deep two-hour practice with Margherita, followed by a delicious organic brunch.
In the afternoons we’ll learn from experienced guest teachers and enjoy workshops on topics such as philosophy, anatomy, Ayurveda, diet, lifestyle and self-care.
Evenings are for healing restorative practice, followed by Yoga Nidra and a mouth-watering dinner prepared with the finest local fruits, vegetables and grains.
Each day you’ll have free time to hang out and relax by the pool, enjoy a soothing treatment in the onsite spa or explore the stunning local coastline and beaches.
Mornings: We begin with morning meditation, pranayama and dynamic yoga, to cultivate a sense of presence and help us gently tune into our beautiful natural surroundings.
Afternoons: Workshops on topics such as philosophy, history, anatomy, Ayurveda, diet, lifestyle, nutrition and self-care, plus experienced guest teachers.
Evenings: Yin and restorative yoga, with bolsters and blankets provided, to soothe our bodies and bring us to stillness before a healing Yoga Nidra.
We’ll take the time to delve deeply into anatomy, Ayurveda, philosophy, history, lifestyle, nutrition and self-care. We’ll be supported by world-class guest teachers such as Rachel Ellery and experienced local practitioners offering sound healings, breath work and other intriguing practices.
ASANA & PRANAYAMA LABS
We’ll spend two days breaking down poses, helping everyone get clear on alignment, answering all your questions and exploring the art of sequencing. This will give you valuable tips on developing and rejuvenating your home practice.
TIME FOR ADVENTURES
We’ll keep a full day or two half-days free for you to do whatever you choose, without any study – just a brief morning practice or evening restorative. We’ve set aside three evenings when you may choose to join us for excursions to the spa baths, ecstatic dance and a closing dinner at one of the beautiful vegan restaurants nearby. There will also be an opportunity to visit Ubud for an optional shopping trip. The schedule isn’t set in stone, as we want to give you ample time and space for resting and quiet reflection too.
