10 days of Breathing Better

We all breathe, yet many of us do not use our breath consciously to improve our well being, our state of mind, our digestion, our mood etc...we can all learn to breathe better than we already do, but this takes practice. The yogis knew and shared the wisdom of the breath as a path to the enlightenment of the human body and psyche. The first step on this journey, I find, is to start having a loving relationship with our breath bodies.

 

Testimonials from 2017:

''The teacher was amazing, lovely, joyful, professional :-) The teaching was perfect for me as a beginner. The poses were not too hard, which made me focus on doing it correctly. Since we were a little crew there was time for the teacher to correct everyone at every session. I have NO complains at all! The venue was like being in Paradise (as my son said when he saw my photos "It is like a hidden Paradise") - it was calm, beautiful and peaceful. The staff were smiling, accommodating and helpful. The food was excellent, fresh, healthy and beautifully served every day. I have already recommended it to many friends!! ...the place, the food, the crew and the surroundings combined with yoga was the very best. I came home purified, calm and happy. - Karina Nordtorp - Denmark

 

Jag har haft en fantastisk tid på bali tillsammans med underbara människor. Jag var lite orolig inför retreaten eftersom jag är en total nybörjare vad gäller Yoga,  jag kände ingen som skulle vara på retreaten, jag är inte så social och hade även ont i väntra höften. Om det är någon som känner oro som jag vill jag verkligen rekommendera att åka ändå! Mithila är en varm och öppen person. Hon tog hela tiden hänsyn till min höft och gjorde korrigering. Hon lärde oss de viktiga termer och rörelse/positioner i början så nybörjarna kunde hänga med. Jag skulle säga att det är perfekt för en ny börjare att kunna spendera en intensiv vecka för att komma igång. 
Alla som var med på retreaten var mycket avslappnade och trevliga. Ibland umgicks vi tillsammans och ibland tog man tid för sig själv och gjorde vad man kände för.
Det var en helt magisk upplevelse med god mat, skön massage, vacker natur och gott skratt. Jag ser fram emot att åka tillbaka...
Tack Mithila och alla som var med♡ Mai tanaka - Stockholm

Please find below some helpful hints:

Visas: there is a lot of mixed information online in relation to visas to Bali. Our local contact tells us that for travellers from Sweden who wish to stay 30 days or less you can obtain a free Visa on Arrival VOA at the airport in Bali. If you wish to extend this for another 30 days, you will need to go to a counter before passport control and pay $35 USD for a Visa On Arrival (VOA). You will then need to use a local visa agent two weeks before you wish to extend. Or you can do this before you travel and apply for a tourist visa or extendable visa at your National Consulate. 

Flights: there is only one airport in Bali- Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpassar or sometimes just "Bali Denpassar". You are responsible for booking your own flights are getting your own way to the retreat.

Transport from the airport: it's easiest to use Ngurah Rai Taxi Service to go to your destination- you can identify them by their blue patterned shirts. Please note that anyone else who offers to help you with your bags will ask to be paid for assisting you and may not be taxi drivers. You can also go to a counter after arrival and get a taxi fixed price (but these will be more expensive). As an indication, 550 000 IDR for transport from Airport to Gajah Mina. This can be arranged via the hotel.

* Cash: It's a good idea to have enough cash for taxi's and food for the first few days. There are ATM's everwhere, but they are often limited to withdrawals of 2 million IDR per withdrawals. This is good to keep in mind if you are planning large payments (in which case it may be a good idea to bring cash and get it exchanged)

Also, a good guide for first time visitors to Bali can be found here.
