Yoga & the Balinese New Year with Laura Burkhart
Join Laura on a trip of a lifetime to explore the rich and unique culture and beauty of Bali. This epic retreat will be the perfect combination of luxury, learning, adventure and relaxation. During this week you will practice in and explore one of the most gorgeous and spiritually potent settings in the world. You’ll enjoy the luxury of a stunning 5-star hotel owned by Ubud’s royal family, where each individual villa with private pool is your own sanctuary for the week. You will also be surrounded by the islands natural beauty and lush gardens as you participate in workshop style yoga class in the morning and all-levels vinyasa class in the evening.
This is truly one of the most incredible weeks of the year to be in Bali as they prepare for the Balinese New Year, called Nyepi or ‘The Day of Silence.’ For the Balinese, it is a time for self-reflection and cleansing as they observe 24 hours of total silence, preceded by firecrackers, singing, laughter, parades and general excitement everywhere. It’s an unforgettable experience to witness the whole island shutting down (no electricity, no driving on the roads, no one working) and to be a part of this powerful ancient tradition. We, as guests, will also take part in the authentic Nyepi rituals and celebrations, which happen just once a year. It is truly an experience that will invite you to go inward and will stay with you forever.
