The Experience

Pure Water. Bali is known for its thousands of temples, soft landscapes, friendly smiles and for a culture that honours water as sacred. In this retreat you will deeply connect to this vital source of life and activate your water element in your body and your energy system. The state of the waters on our planet is at a critical point… maybe a reflection of the pollution of the human minds and inner states? Becoming aware of the importance of this primary source for all of life, you will learn how to energise and bless the water you drink, how to purify your physical systems (80% body weight is water) and how intention can change the molecular consistence of water. For some inspiration click here to watch a short film for free about the sacredness of water.

The second chakra is connected to the element of water and expresses through creativity and sensuality. Through daily practice you will feel how your inspiration and your creative potential are activated and start to flow again!

During this retreat you will lern about Tantra. Often Tantra is believed to be very connected to sex and certain sexual practices. However this has become a very distorted understanding of the meaning of Tantra. If we look at the origins of Tantra we will find that it is the teaching of ONENESS. Once we realise that we are made of the same stuff as the trees, the cosmos, the air… and all that surrounds us… is that is when we truly awaken. In this week we will tap into this experience and ancient teachings of Tantra.

———————————————————————-

Listen to the gentle sound of the river as you join your palms together for your first morning Namaste. Nestled into the stunning natural surroundings just outside the cultural hub Ubud you can let your body, mind and spirit unwind and find rest and rejuvenation.  

Begin each morning turning your awareness inwards through meditation, chanting and asana practice on a stunning wooden yoga deck with view to the river. Learn how to move your body in new and sensual ways to release blockages, fears and create space for more freedom, confidence and self LOVE.

Take some time to yourself down by the river, relax or meditate on the deck, listen the peaceful sounds of the birds and get inspired by the beauty of Saraswati, the goddess of music, arts and knowledge. 

In the afternoons you can enjoy a swim in the Ozone filtered pool, which contains 90% less chlorine than most standard swimming pools. On one afternoon we will take an excursion on eco friendly E-bikes to explore the 'real Bali'. Cycle through stunning scenery, pass rice fields and ancient, mesmerising temples. The highlight will be to visit the sacred water temple close to our retreat home... with luck we may even receive a traditional water blessing <3 

Get nourished from the inside out by the in house chefs of Naya. Organic. Fresh. Tasty. Colourful. You will enjoy 3 delicious vegetarian meals every day cooked for you freshly, using only carefully selected ingredients to support the physical, emotional and spiritual process induced by your yoga practice. 

To additionally enhance your cleansing process you will have access to filtered water 24 hours a day. 

In this retreat you will re connect to your creative power, explore your sensuality, purify body, mind and spirit, feel the warm and welcoming embrace of a culture with a history of thousands of years and have a great time with a small group of like minded people from all over the world.

travel preparation & how to get there

to ubud

Get a flight to Denpansar, Bali international airport

By Taxi: Enter the main arrivals hall, where your diver will be waiting for you if you have booked one. If you haven’t, walk out of the main entrance and turn right, and you’ll see lots of taxi drivers in colorful blue shirts. That’s where you’ll see the official taxi office. The trip to Ubud should be around 300,000 IDR ($27) maximum. It’s about an hour’s drive from the airport to Ubud. Make sure you have your hotel address and phone number with you.

Most guesthouses offer a cheaper pick up from the airport so if you are staying in Ubud for a few nights before the retreat starts, I recommend asking your hosts.

To Naya ubud

Driving along Jalan Raya Sayan, turn at Puskesmas Ubud II, a government health clinic. This route is also known to locals as Jalan Kadewatan 1. Once you see a traditional Balinese temple, stay on the right, and continue straight. The end of the road leads down to a small concrete bridge that crosses a small irrigation canal. Go down the slope, take a right hand turn and follow the rice fields until you see a sign on Naya’s property, which will be on your left.

It is recommended that as you travel to Naya that you have your driver or transport contact:

Office: +62 (0) 361 975 775

Naya Ubud

Jalan Raya Sayan, Gang Puskesmas Ubud II

Banjar Kutuh, Desa Sayan, Ubud 80571

Bali, Indonesia

 

Visa

After you leave the plane and enter the arrivals area, you’ll see the visa on arrivals booths straight in front of you. The cost is $25, or the equivalent in another currency. They only take cash, so make sure you have enough on you. You’ll need to hand in your landing form as well, so also make sure that you’ve filled it in. Hand over the cash and landing form, and you’ll be given a visa on arrival receipt. Once you have your receipt, you need to head for the immigration desks, and they’ll issue you with your visa on arrival, which allows you to stay for 30 days.
