”Trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float” – Alan Watts
The Freediver Course
Learn how to explore the ocean on a single breath. Did you know that we are naturally aquatic beings ? Like other sea mammals, when we dive underwater our bodies change through a series of reflexes and adaptations allowing us to stay underwater longer and more comfortably. In the freediving course you will learn various breathing exercices that will enable you to prepare mentally and physically before and after you dive, you will learn all the safety and rescue procedures and explore the physiology of the breath-hold.
About The Resort
Set near to the foot of the mighty Mount Agung, Balila beach resort will melt your heart and awaken your senses. There is ocean, mountain, and the most special thing about our wonderful setting is that it is off the beaten track.
I first visited Balila when visiting nearby Amed for a few months, where I emerged myself into the experience of freediving. A friend introduced me by the seductive lure and temptation of ‘Moringa Soup’. Many many Moringa Soups, (read crunchy tempe, raw nut Chocolates and chocolate cake) later and this is still my favorite place to visit in Bali. There is magic to every aspect of Balila, to one side is the Mountain, to the other the ocean, I feel protected yet free. The ladies in the Kitchen made me feel so welcome from the first moment I arrived and when I return it feels like I’m returning to my extended family, pouring love into their delcious dishes that emerge from the kitchen, love in their eyes, I am immediately welcomed and feel at ease. Birgit the owner has become like a dear friend to me, and the one big family vibe or the place seems to draw me in and welcome me with an open heart.
I knew that this was the perfect home to host a yoga retreat, and knowing that Birgit had the vision for Retreats at Balila it was a given, and I hosted the first retreat in September 2016.
A Balila Yoga retreat is not just about the time you spend on the mat, although you will gain an extremely valuable experience in the yoga classes. However, the retreat experience begins the moment you arrive, the home space you are welcomed into, the tranquil yet open space, the open night sky with unburdening lights revealing 1000 bright stars. It’s about connecting reconnecting to yourself. I share my passion of yoga, of the ocean and of fresh, organic and delicious food. Everything merges and the retreat experience is a chance to reconnect to yourself through movement, stillness, water, breath, ocean, it is all one, and in one is balance.
