7 days, and 6 Nights to explore Yin and Yang components of your practice, to learn exactly What Yin Yoga is, how it works, Practice it, feel it, and be able to continue that practice alone or sharing with others.
Located in the North East end of Bali, Balila is the perfect location to relax unwind and explore your practice.

The Yoga retreat of lightness, freedom, release. Learn to let go on your yoga mat, be free in movement and in Breath, and then we start to practice this in the water. Learning some basic freediving techniques, or more advanced if you are already freediving. Yin Yoga also seeks out forgotten issues, it get’s really deep into your tissues like no other physical practice you have experienced before.
The price for the retreat is extremely valuable as I want to make it available for all.
The price includes all meals, breakfast lunch and dinner and teas, juice and water throughout the day.
It does not include flights or transport to or from the retreat, however I can arrange a taxi for you from anywhere in Bali at a very reasonable rate, with possibility to share the cost with another.

 

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.

Whilst Freedive training in Dominica in May-June this year, I was fortunate enough to have discovered this new style of Yoga to me called Yin Yoga.
Natalie explained the benefits and the differences of Yin yoga opposed to regular routines i had been doing in the past.
The Yoga sessions I shared with Natalie had tremendous results on my performances in the water- i felt more relaxed, more flexible, and more focused on the task ahead when it came to applying myself for deep dives.
during my training cycle I continued to practice the skills and postures I had learnt and was able to supersede performance expectations by increasing my previous personal bests by 14 meters. Taking me into the 90 meters in Free immersion.
I still practices the exercises and postures i had learnt in Dominica as I really think the Yin Yoga was the missing key to my success in achieving my goals.
I honestly can’t wait to attend more sessions with Natalie as she was such a positive and real person who also like to push the barriers of deep diving.
Cheers for everything!

Natalie is the best! I had not practiced yoga, except for an occasional class now and then, until I met this amazing woman! I have battled tight painful hips for years, but NO MORE! Nat came up with a routine for me which I do every morning and I feel great. No more injections, no more pain pills.
I also got to briefly try meditation with Natalie when I was on Bali last year, can’t wait to do some more.
If only I could carry a Little Nat in my pocket and have her with me every day. That would be beautiful! ❤️
