Dear yoga student,

 

Life can be hard and tough, the world can be fast and draining, fate can be cruel with life taking unexpected courses. It can drain you, pain you and leave you flat, tired and almost ready to give up.

 

  • I want you to know I understand, I have maybe even been where you are now and can truly feel where you are.
  • That’s exactly why I created Bali’s superior AND ONLY Pranala Yoga retreats.
  • We take you from where you are right now, take you to the place you want to be and guarantee you will leave here, loved, at peace, refreshed, vibrationally in-tune and of course ready to face the world again with new yogic tools, new found strength and confidence.

 

Yoga Pranala Retreat – A Unique Journey of Purification in Bali

Join us in a multi-dimensional retreat that combines traditional yoga-mudra, mantra, chanting, postures, pranayama and ancient Balinese self-healing techniques to help balance and purify yourself at all the levels of your being.

Bali, often referred to as the Island of the Gods because of its spiritual energy, is a magical place in which to immerse yourself in these life-changing experiences. The week-long retreat will completely shift your energy and perception of the world.

 

The Elements…

 

Yoga is a path to self-awareness, balance and purification. The ancient Rishis understood the importance of a healthy body for all activities, whether worldly or spiritual.

Pranayama purifies the mind and body through the balance and cultivation of energy throughout the whole body.

Asana purifies the body through movements that increase and improve the flow of blood, oxygen and prana in the tissues, muscles and organs.

Yoga Pranala helps you to clear your mind, focus your intentions, reinvigorate your body and start the self-healing process.

Fire ceremonies:  Fire represents transformation. The Fire Blessing is a healing ritual which helps us to release negative thoughts or unwanted energy into the fire, transform it into more positive energy and bring in and manifest new intentions and new life.

A fire ritual called Havan, dating back millennia, is still practised in these parts of the world. The participants of this retreat will have a unique, authentic experience of this fire purification ceremony.

Water purification: Water represents the flow of energy or prana connecting us to emotion and intuition. The Balinese believe that water rituals assist in cleansing us on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Uplifting kirtan sessions are performed during evenings with musical instruments indigenous to the local culture. Participants are encouraged to sing along to the harmonious music.  Sounds are known to have healing and calming effects and the experience will leave you rejuvenated and energized.

You will be introduced to and immersed in the Balinese culture by participating in a purification ritual in one of the oldest temples in Bali, Tirta Empul temple. The name ‘Tirta Empul’ means ‘crystal clear stream’, which signifies that it is used as holy water for religious ceremonies.

The breathtaking Gunung Kawi, an ancient temple set in a lush green landscape, offers a view of rice paddies, gardens and jungle.

We have prepared a special course for you in which you will learn the intricacies of creating silk batik.  Batik is both an art and a craft, and has become popular in the West as a wonderfully decorative medium.

In this 3-4 hour course you will:

Create Beauty with flowing, vibrant colored dyes on pure satin silk and enjoy an afternoon in a lush, tranquil garden studio in the center of Bali.

The retreat will be based at Ananda Cottages, near the yogic centre of Ubud. The resort is a spacious oasis of tranquility, offering several pools and a spa area where you can relax and pamper yourself.  Beautifully prepared, perfectly balanced, nutritious meals will complete the process of healing and nurture of your body and soul, while you enjoy comfortable accommodation in shared twin or single rooms.

What Yoga Actually Is

  • Yoga is about stillness of the mind and developing the witness within of our  human experience and consciousness.
  • You need not to be flexible to practice yoga
  • Yoga is not a physical exercise.
  • You are never too old to practice Yoga.
  • Being flexible is not being an advanced yoga practitioner

Yoga is about breathing. Breath is the vehicle for prana. It is the breath that initiates and finishes the movement. We hold the breath for two seconds between each and every breath. That creates a trance state that is pleasant and relaxing.

 

If you are new to Yoga – You’ll love it. If you’ve never tried Pranala – You’ll love it.

 

People come from all over the globe to visit us as you’ll see below so you will love the international feel and we have a beautiful, trusting and loving Balinese team that will carefully and lovingly look after you while you are here.

It’s not how far you get in to the position; it’s about getting to your own personal edge that makes the practice of Yoga.

Just one more thing I want to share with you before I share more about the class. Our location is absolutely stunning. You will smell the flowers, feel the warm wind, listen to the exotic birds. Bali is truly lush, luxuriant and exotic, the land is infused with powerful healing properties and you feel the energy of the land. It truly is a healing island.

Everything about Bali is beautiful everything about our Yoga classes is unique, different and caring.

Please feel invited to join our Pranala family.

Now let me share with you a little about why you should try Pranala Yoga and why it’s different.

 

Yoga Pranala is a combination of Vinyasa Flow (inspired by several yoga schools including the Sri T. Krishnamacharya lineage, Bihar School of Yoga and Hatha Yoga) and Mudra Pranala (Healing art based on energy movement transmitted by Balinese shaman Tjokorda Rai). Yoga Pranala effectively increases inner and outer strength, enhances mental clarity, relaxation, total presence and harmony.

 

My deeper passion is to pass on my deep understanding of this powerful combination of self-healing techniques. My team and myself can help you learn how to focus on breath and re-connect with the energy of the earth and the universe. Through Yoga Pranala you activate life force by connecting the two major energy poles inside the body, which manifest as ‘Prana’. In ancient Balinese, Pra means first, Prana power, Nala inner fire and Pranala circulation or energy flow. Prana and energy movement is the essence of healing mind, body and spirit.

 

It is really very different to any other Yoga class you’ll ever experience I can promise you that.

Here’s just some of what you’ll experience.

  • A wonderfully flexible body
  • Deep intuitive spiritual support
  • Spiritual immersion that reconnects you to your higher self
  • Learn a healing technique (first level of pranala)
  • Experience Yoga Pranala
  • Ancient activation ceremony with local priest at the temple
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Crossed cultural mixed with global students and the beautiful Balinese people
  • A magical experience that I promise you’ll never forget
  • Yogic skills that will stay with you for life.
  • Discover timeless wisdom of ancient yoga & meditation and the benefits that can help to bring to your mind, body and spirit.
  • Learn how to access your body’s own healing channels
  • Deepen your physical and spiritual awareness, renew energy level, restore health balance, release emotional baggage and reconnect with your true self
  • Open your heart to invite more abundance, health and joy
  • Heal old emotions, physical imbalances through the power of yoga
  • Meet like minded new people, have fun detoxifying, rejuvenating, and
    practicing yoga in stunning settings of Bali

If you feel ready to … Recover – Rethink – Rebuild – Redirect – YOUSELF – Into a New Life …I’d love you to accept my invite to join the ultimate Yoga Retreat … Pranala Yoga …

Everything that we need always within. It is important to believe myself and to connect to the unverse for going forward to right path. Be surrendar, then Everything goes well. Love and respect myself and then naturally we love surrounding people, and respect all beings!   Yoga pranala intensive course is more than Yoga training course, that is Life transformation program! I feel something mentaly totally shifted at the end of the course, and it let my door opened. I love tehacher – Linda’s way of teaching “indiredtly” sometimes. so we have many chance to think by ourselves, and choose own way in the class. that was great opportunity for me. And now, I completely understand everything is possible if we connect to the mother earth and Father’s sky. Thank you so much from my heart for your special energy and precious time in my life.
