Join this long stay healing retreat and undertake a transformational process of dynamic yoga, meditation plus individual and group therapy. This occurs in the gorgeous exotic surroundings of Seminyak, on the Balinese coast. Imagine a long stay in a sumptuous boutique hotel, with leisure time to enjoy the swimming pools, tropical gardens, spa treatments, complementary therapies, and gourmet Asian and European cuisine.
The individual and group therapy sessions – coupled with a daily practice of Kundalini yoga and meditation – provide an instinctive connection between the body and mind, especially when practised for more than 40 days. The longer stay enables guests to crystallise these beneficial patterns and achievements. The meditative element of yoga is particularly effective in calming the mind and creating new neural pathways that help guests maintain a more useful, grounded outlook, positive habits, and an authentic, effective way of seeing and being.
