BALI YOGA RETREAT SEPT 22-29, 2013 "THE ART OF ADVENTURE" AT SOULSHINE

SELF-DISCOVERY IN PARADISE

During this 7-day Yoga Adventure, we will explore the wild beauty and power of nature, all the while exploring of your equally vibrant inner landscape. This retreat is designed to take the adventurous yogi to a deeper level of self-awareness by opening doors to new experiences in Bali. Together, we will make new discoveries in exotic landscapes. On the mat, we will explore the radiance and playfulness of possibility by getting out of old habits and learning five new Sun Salutations, including Mandala Namaskars (circular salutations). By adopting new viewpoints and ways of approaching our practice and life, we will strengthen our courage to venture into new adventures in our life. This experience will return you to the best of your creative power and will make you curious to keep refining the Art of Lifelong Adventure!

We will be staying at Soulshine Bali, created by Michael Franti and Carla Swanson. It is located in beautiful Ubud, the arts and crafts center of Bali, this magical center is dedicated to bringing people together to practice yoga, meditation, music and dance.

The exquisitely designed main building and grounds hosts a river, tropical gardens and several ornate ponds; covered by a traditional balinese roof, the open air yoga studio on the third floor overlooks some of the most spectacular rice terraces, temples and greenest jungle in the world. Welcome to beauty. Welcome to enrichment. Welcome to Bali.

FAQ’s
• Do I need a visa to visit Bali?
Yes, depending on your nationality. U.S. passport holders will need to show a passport valid for six months after the arrival date in Bali, a return ticket and $25USD (in exact change) for a 30 day visa. Visa regulations have been in flux in Bali for almost a decade so it is recommended that you check with your consulate for the most up to date information.

• What airport do I fly into?
Make all travel arrangements into Denpasar (DPS). Please be aware that you will need to depart the US one to two days before the start of the retreat, depending on the flight schedule you chose.

• How do I get from Denpasar to the retreat?
Transfers are included via private transport. If you have any questions regarding your arrival time and transportation availability, please contact The Travel Yogi before booking. Occasionally flights arrive into Denpasar in the early morning hours (1-5am) which can make timely transfers difficult.

• What is the electrical currency/outlet in Bali?
Bali utilizes the standard British plug (two flat blades and one flat grounding blade) and the European plug (two round pins) and is at 230V. Adapters will be necessary if you are taking any electrical items.

• Do I need any inoculations?
Generally speaking, traveling to foreign countries exposes you to new germs and diseases. All inoculations or malaria tablet inquiries need to be directed to your physician for an accurate assessment of your individual need or preference.

• Is there internet access on property?
While we hope you’ll try and unplug… yes, there is wi-fi on property.

• What will the weather be like?
Because of it’s equatorial location, Bali tends to have fairly stable weather with the ‘wet’ season occurring between October and April and the ‘dry’ season between May and September. It is generally always hot with temperatures hovering in the mid to high 80s and up.

• Will I need to ‘dress’ for dinner?
The dress code is completely up to you. It is very warm well into the evenings so dress for comfort over fashion. There is no ‘dress code’ in this relaxed and kicked-back atmosphere.

• How do I book an optional excursion?
All excursions can be booked at the retreat at any time during your stay. If there is something that you know you absolutely MUST experience while in Bali, it’s best to book early in the week to avoid disappointment.

WHAT WILL MY WEEK LOOK LIKE?
The week will include twice daily yoga and other fun adventures. Here is a high level view of your daily schedule.
