YOGA WITH AMBER BALI RETREAT
12th June - 17th June 2020
2019 is going to be the 5th year that Amber is running a Yoga Retreat in her second home of Bali. As most of you know Amber lived in Bali for 12 years, has 2 half Indonesian children, speaks fluent Indonesian and has a strong connection with the island and the beautiful people.
Imagine nourishing your whole body and mind with a daily Yoga practice, deliciously healthy local and raw food prepared for you daily, endless massages and daily beauty treatments, all in the surrounds of a tropical paradise, sounds good doesn’t it?
During the 6 days of this amazing retreat, we will go deeper into our daily yoga practice with morning meditations, and 2 yoga practices a day plus an evening guided after dinner meditation (optional) to help your body truly fall into a deep sleep.
The yoga practices are set up so that each day you learn something new. We will start off we 10 simple Yoga poses that are core poses for general practice and we will work on the alignment of each pose so that the student has a clear understanding of how the body should be and feel in the specific pose. Everyone is always encouraged to work at their own pace and take as much time is needed to get into the pose, and to rest into the pose. Once we have established some key poses we will work with a vinyaasa style to help combine poses together, so that once you leave the retreat you are able to string poses together and make a practice for yourself.
This retreat is about you,about the individual having time to fully immerse themselves with your practice with like minded people, delicious food, daily massages on tap, beautiful rice paddy walks all set in a 5 star boutique resort.
Amber’s Yoga style is a unique bland of Hatha and Ashtanga and her passion is on alignment and allowing your body to adjust into the pose rather than the other way around. After teaching for over 20 years, she loves helping people to develop a practice that they feel comfortable to do at home but also to help them to find a path to being the best versions of themselves in body and mind. This is the focus of the Retreat.

Why go on a Yoga Retreat
There are so many reasons to go on a Yoga Retreat. Here are a few of them to remind you that YOU are WORTH the Investment.
1. Time out of your routine. Unless we go away it's hard to take time out of our everyday routine and yet even we do we learn so much and we can then reflect upon where we are and where we want to go. Reset our goals.
2. A daily lead practice and teaching, in this case 2 classes a day really moves your ability on in just a week and it boosts your confidence to start to practice at home.
3. You get to experience a different culture and you meet new and different people.
4. By fully submerging yourself For a week in Yoga and wellness with like minded people you are more inclined to keep a routine going once you return home.
5. Finally you come back energized and rejuvenated, with a resilience to tackle anything.
