Each afternoon we will offer a workshop and in the evenings we will feast at local restaurants and reflect, share with each other and partake in a few spiritual rituals and ceremonies if you wish to. It will be authentic and we will give you freedom to choose your days and activities.


3. Why Gili Air, Indonesia?


As exquisite, cultural and beautiful Bali is, it’s busy. There is a vast amount of traffic activity and hustle and bustle that for us, quite honestly, disrupts our every day regime. We want to provide a space where you can release and feel completely relaxed, away from the busy fast paced energy that we are so accustomed to. We want you to feel like life has slowed down, appreciate simplicity again, enjoy an authentic cultural experience without all the “tourists”. A place where there are no cars or motor vehicles, a place that is quiet and serene where you can absorb and find appreciation in the simple things in life. With less distraction there is more room for growth. A better chance for you to reconnect with yourself and a chance for you to let life love you!

Male, female, young, old, fit, unfit, yogis, first time yoga students, spiritual and non spiritual, vegans and non vegetarians. There is room for all, without judgment, without force.
