Your retreat leaders:

Chae Chae Hirano, Yoga Instructor and retreat leader
 “I've had the privilege of teaching yoga and Pilates for nearly 13 years, with my teaching style constantly evolving.  I take my own life experiences, as well as what I've learned from the many inspired teachers who have taught me, such as, Eileen Hall, Simon Borg-Olivier, Trevor Tanjye, Steve Ross, Philippe Taupin and Alycea Ungaro to create a dynamic and energetic class. I would like to inspire others to discover how yoga can heal anyone holistically, through its asanas and breathing and taking it into their everyday lives, with a teaching method that involves using empathy and humility.”
Chae is a certified Pilates instructor with Romana's Pilates aka the New York Method of Pilates with 600 certification hours.  She has attended various yoga workshops through the years including 'Anatomy of Hatha Yoga' at Synergy Yoga and certified as a personal trainer by FIA (Fitness Institute of Australia).

Diane Diane Rakocy, Art Instructor and retreat leader
 “I believe that we all live more fully when we’re feeding our Creative Spirit and following our creative dreams; whether that means simply living more creatively or making a living as an artist. There are so many awesome ways that we can express ourselves with art. I love working with women and using art as a tool for increased Self-Awareness”.

THE PLACE

The fourteen bedroom holistic retreat is located 1.5 km from the heart of Ubud in Bali. Bordered to the west by a small creek, the eco-friendly retreat is surrounded by jungle and rice fields. The retreat centre offers 2 swimming pools, dining room, Spa and a 100 sq. meter yoga studio open to nature.

Each room is air conditioned, has its own terrace with garden, mini-bar, bathtub and shower. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests' ultimate serenity, everyone above the age of 14 is welcome at the retreat.

THE PRACTICE

The classes will involve learning postural and alignment techniques through asanas and core stabilization work with a combination of breath and meditation. While immersed in gorgeous peaceful surroundings and uplifting music, learn how to empower your body, mind and heart through vinyasa flow movement; with emphasis on the pelvic area as well as over-all body conditioning. The classes are perfect for novices as well as advanced practitioners.

THE ART

These sessions will take you on a journey to your Center with art. Through a variety of art exercises as well as meditation and journaling, you will get a chance to connect with your Inner Wisdom through art. The exercises are designed to open up your creativity. They are intuitive, fun, and introspective, exercises suitable for everyone. No prior art experience is necessary, just an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to explore!
