Pondok Pisang, Candi Dasa, Yoga Retreat Resort 2023

Take a wonderful Iyengar yoga tour to the best yoga escape Bali has.

The aim of the retreat is not to leave with a set of fancy poses. But there will be plenty of opportunity to steadily improve your yoga or breath meditation, or both.

Instead, the key objective of the retreat is more about your relationship with yourself.

So, Kriya yoga, otherwise known as yoga in action, will be the focus.

Kriya yoga approach at this 5 day yoga retreat Bali 2023

Kriya yoga has these elements:

  • tapas: discipline/fire, both physical and mental
  • svadhaya: self-study
  • Ishvara pranidhana: surrender to the present moment

Our inspiratation lies in the ancient yoga book called The Bhagavad Gita. It says: “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”
