18 – 26 October
with Suzi Chin Silicz
An 8 day Iyengar Yoga Retreat
in Nyuh Kuning, Ubud
The Retreat this year has been carefully planned so there is time to focus on yoga, being on retreat and taking a break. The cost includes accommodation and other extras so the only thing you need to plan is your air fare and the usual sundry travel arrangements. The retreat is for anyone who has done some yoga to more experienced practitioners, so everyone is welcome and catered for.
The venue, Alam Indah, is a family run hotel with friendly staff who welcome us with open hearts. There is a swimming pool and villa style rooms situated in beautiful gardens within a jungle atmosphere. The 12 unique rooms all offer air-conditioning & fans and are nestled in wonderful gardens. Some overlook the jungle valley, others have garden views.
Arrive to check in on Friday October 18 from 2.00 PM, for the Saturday morning start. The friendly Alam Indah staff will help settle you into your room and show you around.
The retreat will complete Saturday, October 26 with checkout at 12 noon. Late checkouts can be arranged upon request.
The Yoga sessions start on Saturday morning, October 19 at 7am. The space has a cool floor and looks out onto tropical gardens. Most of the equipment is supplied, but you will need to bring your mat, strap, blocks of you have some, and any other special equipment you may use for practice. The morning sessions start with a guided meditation then tea followed by a 2 hour yoga asana class. Then we get together again later in the afternoons for 1 1/2 hours of restorative & pranayama or practice class.
Ubud is the cultural centre of Bali. There are many places of interest to visit or spend the free time during the days and evenings just relaxing.

Sharing a room requires the participants to find someone to share with. Share accommodation is based on a twin or double shared room. When deciding which rooms to share, check Alam Indah’s website for room sizes etc as some rooms are better to share space wise than others. Please specify if you require twin share or double bedding arrangements. If you have a non-participating partner accompanying you, please request a cost quote via the contact form below.
