BALI YOGA RETREAT
THE SHALA BALI YOGA RETREAT
A whole week to immerse in yoga and meditation whilst soaking up Bali’s Hindu culture in the rice paddies outside Ubud, Bali’s cultural heart. Beautiful meals provided, in the peaceful onsite cafe, and Ubud’s shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
Join Flo and students old and new on this fun holiday retreat! This retreat will suit anyone who wants to relax, enjoy great food, a beautiful environment, and access one of Australia’s most highly knowledgeable teachers-whilst enjoying the tropical surrounds and ancient culture of Ubud, Bali! On this retreat, you will get the opportunity to learn the true essence of yoga life-style and practice from an expert in the field and from someone who truly lives yoga.
As always, Flo’s focus will be on paring back complicated and unnecessary parts of yoga practice to reveal the true foundation of each technique. This retreat offers a deep insight into yoga for all levels. Those who are experienced teachers regularly come to learn from Flo for fine tuning, to learn the latest teaching tools and tips, and to re-inspire their own practice and teaching, whilst those who are just starting out on their yoga journey will be led into the practice at a level that is appropriate and beneficial.
This special holiday retreat will also feature a half day excursion to the beautiful water temple!

8.00m-10.30am: Therapeutic Vinyasa style yoga Asana
Using a flowing, focused sequence of postures, we will address the fundemenatal asanas to build a deeper understanding of postural bio-mechanicss and learn to manage common areas of pain, tightness and weakness in the body. Though the practice is strength and fitness building, Flo creates a strong focus of awareness on the subtleties of the physical postures, core-strength, and the movement of the breath in the body. There will be alternatives given to those whose injuries or postural peculiarities prevent them from performing a posture with total comfort and safety.This practice will be of benefit to all, beginners to advanced students/teachers.

This session will be of particular benefit to those seeking a way to use their yoga practice to relax and ?tune-in? at a deeper level.
In this session we will explore various breathing techniques, meditation and yoga nidra (guided visualisation and deep-relaxation) to bring about a deep experience of connectedness with the very subtlest layers of our being. especially beneficial to those who have had a strongly Asana focused practice, or those who have stressful lives, and are not familiar with Yoga Nidra. (It is blissful!)

“Dear Flo, Just a quick message to thank you once again for the retreat last week, which very much lived up to my expectations. I was particularly impressed by the depth and breadth of your knowledge of yoga, and the excellence of your planning, preparation and presentation of lessons.
I expected to be tired and achy by the end of the week, but am pleasantly surprised to feel more energetic and with no aches and pains at all. I?m attributing this partly to the extra time you spent on pranayama and relaxation/meditation compared to other retreats I?ve attended, but also to the way that you sequence your lessons so that the body is very thoroughly prepared before moving into the stronger asanas. A good lesson for me to bring into my own practice!
The food, of course was wonderful, so was the location beside such an unspoiled, uncrowded beach, and the accommodation, I thought, was comfortable and good value for the price.
All up, a worthwhile, educative and enjoyable week! Best wishes for the future to you and yours, Warmest regards.”
“The retreat was wonderful. Flo is a great teacher and I really appreciated her teaching style: firm and organised but patient and full of intent. It was always clear what we were doing and why we were there. I liked how she led us through our practice, calmly and with purpose, whether that was asana or chanting or yoga nidra.”?
