Living in gratitude yoga retreat

Living in gratitude yoga retreat

Join us on this 7-day journey that you will never forget.

From magnificent mountains to rugged cliffs, rice plantations and long black sand beaches, it’s no surprise Bali is known as the island of the Gods. There is a sacred and spiritual atmosphere in the Balinese land from sunrise, when local women spiritually greet the new day, right through until sunset.

Retreats are periods spent away from your everyday life. They offer time and space to do something different. More than a holiday, a yoga retreat adds a blend of physical movement, focused breathing, reflection, meditation and lots more, all of which create a more aware and connected self.

Your days will be filled with activities, as well as having free time to just hang by the pool, go exploring, shopping, and enjoy extra spa treatments too. Explore both Canggu, where you can enjoy the Balinese beaches and maybe learn to surf, and Ubud, the yoga capital of Bali with all it has to offer. It is without doubt that Bali has it all – the culture and people, beautiful locations, amazing cuisine, great spas, and world-class healers.

During this retreat you’ll explore the deep and nourishing qualities of gratitude and joy of what is. Being happy is about acknowledging our gratitude for what we have at that moment, for what we have done, for every success we have achieved. We will also offer you lots of tools to connect to your uniqueness, your purpose and what really drives you and lights you up.

You are here, on this earth, for a very specific reason. You were created with intention and have a purpose in life that is entirely unique to you. The difference between simply existing and truly living a life of passion and intent is having clarity on our purpose and understanding, on a deep level, how to flow with the universe instead of against it.

Now is the time for you to take the next step of your journey and break through the limitations that are holding you back from living the life you are meant for…

Canggu-Beach-seminyak-bali-deyiz-2   Gratitude retreat Bali   Ubud rice terrace

Bali is a great place to nourish yourself with some fantastic healing treatments and rejuvenate from the inside out. On leaving the retreat you’ll feel a fresh, calm, clarity that will travel with you back into your everyday life, to re-engage with new skills and a fresh perspective.

Pranabar Biohackers half day retreat

Biohacking Retreat Day

Pranabar Biohackers Half Day Retreat
Sunday 4th August, 8:00am – 1:00pm

– Kundalini yoga with Baldev Kaur (Justina)
– Bulletproof coffee break with BiohackerNZ
– Biohacking talk with Trudy Northcott of TrustbyTrudy
– Breath works and ice bath session with Wendy Vermeulen of Pranabar

Explore the realm of biohacking with us through a day of guided sessions. Biohacking is a term made popular by Dave Asprey, the inventor of Bulletproof coffee and more, and can be described as ‘a systems-thinking approach to our biology’. This August we delve deeper into the many studies, tools and talks to discover youngering and biohacking.

Begin with a powerful energy shifting Kundalini yoga session with Kundalini teacher Baldev Kaur, where you’ll stimulate the central nervous system, awakening the Prana or life force within.
“Kundalini yoga is said to be ‘the science, art and technology which enables you to access and utilise your own creative power for elevation of consciousness, healing and self-empowerment.’(kundaliniyoga.org.uk)”

Follow with a bulletproof coffee break with BiohackersNZ, where you’ll also have time to chat with the group on your Kundalini session as well as the science behind and benefits of bulletproof coffee.

After the break we’ll begin our biohacking deeper dive session with guest speaker Trudy Northcott of TrustbyTrudy.

Closing off our day of biohacking exploration, we’ll end with a breath work and ice bath session with Pranabar facilitator Wendy Vermeulen. Drawing inspiration from the works of the Wim Hoff Method, we’ll discuss mind tools, breath work and cold exposure before taking the plunge.

Join us this August as we dive deeper in to the community of biohacking!
