BALI RETREAT ‘Being steady and at ease’- Finding your balance
19- 26 May 2017
Euros 995 - 1,225
Led by Geraldine Hardy from Azure Yoga and in collaboration with ZOGA Yoga
We take you on a journey of self-exploration to find your balance in life. How can we juggle our private and professional daily lives and find steadiness with ease in a fast pace environment?
Join us for a rejuvenating retreat designed to take you back home and reconnect with yourself in Bali, also known as the ‘Island of the Gods’ at the beautiful Being Sattvaa Wellness Retreat.
Surrounded by lush green rainforest, this environment will be your sanctuary for seven days to learn about the great tools that yoga has to offer to find steadiness and sweetness in our daily lives. With two daily yoga practices, Pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation, we will explore tools such as the Yamas & Niyamas (ethical guidelines) and learn how to apply them in our practice and daily life. These philosophical guidelines are there to empower you to take ownership of your life. ‘The Yamas and Niyamas are like a detailed map, telling you where you are and how to look for the next landmark.’ ~ Deborah Adele
Create space for something new in our life by releasing what no longer serves you.
Being Sattva Wellness Retreat space speaks to the notion of being in balance and understanding our different energy levels (the gunas). A space dedicated to restore your complete being in an exclusive setting of ten Balinese garden villas where you can reconnect with yourself and nature. Enjoy the sunrises and sunsets, longs walks and treks, swims, spa, beautiful tropical Balinese garden, nearby cultural events, sightseeing in Ubud… Nutritionally balanced Asian and Western cuisine delicately flavored with fresh produce from their garden.
This retreat will be lead by Geraldine Hardy of Azure Yoga (www.azureyoga.com) in collaboration with ZOGA Yoga (www.zoga.ae), who has been teaching internationally in France, Bali and Dubai (ZOGA Yoga). Before sharing her BelovedYoga teachings, she worked for 17 years in a fast pace business environment, which helps her now to draw her work and life experience into her yoga teachings. She shares the tools of Yoga to empower fellow practitioners to reconnect to themselves as well as create a relationship with themselves to find peace and calmness. Geraldine is a RYT 200hr teacher with BelovedYoga (www.belovedyoga.com) and continues her studies with BelovedYoga founder Maryam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander, Indra Mohanand A.G. Mohan. She embraces the teachings of Sri Krishnamacharya, ‘founder of Modern Yoga’ as we know it today and shared with the lineages of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Viniyoga. Her teachings follow the principles of ‘sthira sukham asanam’ (Yoga Sutra 2.46) – ‘creating the appropriate amount of effort to sustain ease in the body and mind’. Experiencing this balance ‘on the mat’ and then taking it ‘off the mat’ in our daily lives.
'I have learned in the past years that happiness and contentment starts with creating a relationship with myself first and embracing to be a student for my lifetime, while enjoying my journey . …. From doing to be a human being'

BeingSattvaa is in the village of Kenderan, a 10-minute drive from the bustling Ubud town-centre. It is set amidst the famed rice fields of Tegallalang, fringed by rice paddies on one side and rain forest on the other.
Ubud is a quaint and remarkable town in the middle of the island of Bali. For more than a century, it has been the island's preeminent centre for fine arts, dance and music - it is truly the cultural and artistic capital of Bali. This rambling country town, made up of several artisan villages, each dedicated to one particular art or craft, is located an hour’s drive north of the airport. The air is pungent, smelling of the earth, river and forests, all of which can be found in plenty in Ubud. Ubud boasts some of Bali's most stunning resorts and spas, and sophisticated restaurants serving the best of Asian and Western cuisine. Elegant hotels, sprawling mansions and quaint villas now stand on its outskirts, overlooking the most amazing views in Bali. Ubud is now a hub of literature, art, music and dance. It draws people who add something; people who are actively involved in art, nature, wellness, anthropology, music, dance, architecture, environmentalism, and more.
Ubud's unique ecosystem and culture make it an ideal place to practice wellness, a perfect getaway, if you will.
