Relax, Rejuvenate, Rejoice!
A Spiritual Immersion mixed with some Serious You Time
6 – 12 April 2019, Bali Indonesia
If you’re yearning for some serious “YOU TIME” and ready to push the pause button to change your life from STRESS to YES! then join us for a culturally and spiritually rich yoga retreat on the tranquil Isle of Bali!
As the sun rises over the shimmering ocean, you walk quietly along a cobblestone path through the tropical gardens to your yoga shala.
Anticipating the relaxation to come, you stop for a moment to savour the sweet smell of incense wafting on the morning breeze.
Moments later, you enter the shala to the melodic sound of a stringed instrument — not so different to a harp. Its soothing notes transport you into to an even deeper space of serenity.
Throughout the guided yoga and meditation practices, you move effortlessly, naturally, peacefully. Your body and mind revel at this opportunity to let go and return to the rhythm of your true nature.
Only moments later — or so it seems — you emerge deeply nourished and satisfied, ready for even more relaxation.
Later that day, sinking into a beach-side daybed, you find yourself smiling with delight as you sip on a fresh lemongrass tea, reflecting on the highlights of the past few days.
And those highlights Include: rubbing shoulders with the locals; playing music with the village children; taking part in spiritual cleansing rituals; luxuriating in sensual spa treatments and dining on scrumptious cuisine.
“Ahhh, what delights!”

When I first stood on that sticky blue mat in 1997 little did I know how life-changing it would be! My first experiences with yoga was all about technique, blocks and bolsters. This gave me the physical challenge I thrived on.
When the body said “enough is enough”, and finding myself suffering from injuries and illness, I discovered a more gentle practice was better suited and fulfilling at this time. This is when I embraced Satyananda Yoga and for the first time I truly experienced a deep sense of inner peace.
Satyananda Yoga’s holistic and integral system – postures, breathing, deep relaxation, meditation and mantra, resonated deep within, leaving me fulfilled and relaxed.
I decided to immerse myself completely in Yogic Philosophy and Lifestyle, living within an Ashram environment in both India and Australia (2007 – 2013). I lived as a residential teacher in a Buddhist Meditation Centre in Nepal (2014). And over the years (2009 to 2016) I have taught within the Ashram environment on retreats and the Yoga Teachers Training Diploma, along with running Community Classes and Retreats in Australia, Nepal, Bali and India. Oh, did I mention leading Yoga Treks in Nepal as well.
I have used Yoga to aid in my own recovery from injuries and illnesses and continue to do so in maintaining good health on all levels – physical, mental emotional and spiritual.
My Yoga teachings draw on all of my life and yoga experiences to date. I incorporate the strength and alignment obtained from those earlier years, weave in the subtleties that Satyananda Yoga has opened up to me, and draw on the experience I have gained through my Ashram living, healing and daily practice.
I look forward to sharing the riches that yoga and meditation can bring into your life on retreat in Australia, Bali, India or Nepal.
