RECHARGE & LIVE - A NEW YEAR'S YOGA RETREAT IN BALI
DECEMBER 28, 2020 - JANUARY 4, 2021
Join us on the ever famous island of Bali as we recharge, say goodbye to 2020 and celebrate life as we ring in 2021 together. We’ve combined all of our favourite parts of Bali taking you to both Canggu and Ubud, all of the best cafes, the best surf and sunset spots while Jenny Clise and Emily Meersand lead you through all the yoga to move your body and feed your soul. We’ll start our week adventuring in the coastal village of Canggu where you’ll have the chance to watch all the sunsets or catch all the waves (or both), celebrate the end of the first year of this new decade and set intentions to welcome the new year. Our last couple of days will be spent in Ubud to give you balance, all the spa time and the opportunity to recharge before you head home.
YOGA & WORKSHOPS
What to expect in Jenny’s classes?
In her classes she will take you through mindful flows and workshop postures. She focuses heavily on foundation and alignment to safely prepare you for more challenging postures later on. Jenny encourages you to turn inwards, draw intentionality into your practice and recognize your strength both physically and mentally in each moment.
What to expect in Emily’s classes?
She is passionate about sharing her love of a well-rounded and balanced yoga practice through her teachings of both powerful, sweaty vinyasa classes and grounding, soothing restorative and yin classes. Emily incorporates the healing properties and benefits of essential oils into her yoga classes as well. Seek more balance in your life, invigorate your mind, and soothe your soul in Emily's classes!
Workshop 1 - Fly Away - Arm Balance & Inversion with Jenny & Emily (90 mins)
A perfect way to strengthen body and mind! We will break down arm balance and inversions to rebuild a stronger (and safer) practice. We will teach tips and tricks to work on these postures as well as functional drills to help prepare for them! This workshop is for all levels.
Workshop 2: Slow Flow & Deep Restore with Emily Meersand (90 mins)
This meditative yoga experience incorporates essential oils, supportive props, and breathwork to allow you to enter a state of pure bliss. Class will begin with a slow, soul warming flow to awaken the body, then move into long resting holds that will allow tension in the body and mind to unwind and melt away.
Workshop 3: Heart Activation- a back bending workshop with Jenny Clise (90 min)
In this workshop, you will approach backbends from both a physical and spiritual perspective. You will explore the proper warm-up, anatomy, and alignment techniques for back bending that enable yogis to access these asanas in a new and invigorating way. You will also explore some of Jenny’s favorite backbends and shapes to deepen your back bending practice. In addition, you will travel deep into your energetic heart space to expand your capacity for positive energy to enter your new year with and open heart. Backbends support greater self-confidence and the ability to move beyond fear to fully embrace life.
This workshop will include a yin and restorative cool-down sequence to help integrate the benefits of such a dynamic practice.
