Bali Silent Retreat Yoga group

Yoga Asana & Meditation

Classes are Beginner-Friendly Hatha postures, to support the experience of meditation. Unlike contemporary western ‘yoga studios’, there are no strong postures or head stands or aggressive yoga asana practice. New guests rotate daily, so the asana postures are only to prepare the body for meditation. Most of our yoga teaching partners are local Balinese with a simplistic style.

Mats and props are provided, though we dedicate 10mins/class for remembering original ‘no-props’ asanas.

MORNING & AFTERNOON SESSIONS

  • Morning meditation is a Sacred Silent practice with very little guidance, just the sound of a brass bowl at intervals to remind us of our breath.
  • Yoga asana class is a basic hatha practice – 90 minutes  (beginner postures), savasana (rest) and meditation.
  • Afternoon yoga practice is gentle yin or restorative asana (just a few supported postures) using props to aid a sense of ‘non-doing’ – 75 minutes
  • Meditation in the afternoon is simple with some guidance in sitting, walking or lying down.

THE SPACE – Bale (pronounced ‘bah-lay’) is available for personal practice between 8:30 – 11:30am and 4:30-6:30pm.

Hot spring

Hot Springs

ESPA Hot Springs:  Monday-Friday mornings you can enjoy the healing waters that can promote physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Transport and towel included.

There are big pools for group soaking as well as small private pools.

There is also a large cold water pool for you to take a refreshing dip after your soothing soak. Get your towel at our reception office and hop into the special Happy-Hot-Springs-Bus at 10am.

Fire Pit

Every evening, gather around the fire to ponder life, in silence, of course. Small papers are available to write memoirs or apologies and drop into the fire.
