Heart Centered Living
Yoga in Daily Life Retreat in Ubud, Bali
we invite you to join us on this blissful week away. With the warm, peaceful atmosphere and healing energies of Bali as our backdrop we will explore the wondrous practices and teachings of yoga.
Our intention is to offer an immersion into asana, pranayama, relaxation, meditation and satsang without the distractions of our regular life, the opportunity to explore your own practice more deeply, touching the wisdom of your heart. Practices are supported with guidance in the sessions plus opportunities to talk with the teachers and time to integrate your own experiences. All this balanced with ample free time to relax and do nothing or to explore the stunning tropical natural surrounds and vibrant culture of Ubud.

We are staying at
Ananda Cottages Ubud. Set in a beautiful location this resort is immersed in nature's serene surrounds, with comfort, character and modern conveniences. Far enough out of the main part of town, set amongst rice paddy fields and lush tropical forest, yet close enough to easily access all the wonderful cafes, health spas, culture and shopping Ubud town provides.
Our yoga pavilion is onsite. A spacious studio looking out to the luscious green garden.
We've reserved superior rooms. Double or twin share beds.
The room has WiFi, AC, TV, fan, desk, sofa, mosquito net, shower, bath, hairdryer, toilet, bathroom, mini fridge & electric kettle.

This retreat features guest yogi Mahamandaleshwar Swami Jasraj Puri.
A main disciple of Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda (Vishwaguruji), Swami Jasraj is Australian born and was living in India at the Yoga in Daily Life ashram in Rajasthan and studying and practicing in the holy Himalayas for more than 20 years.
Swami Jasraj is a highly respected and inspiring yogi whose immersion in the authentic yogic practices and life in India has contributed to his deep insight and experiences. With his western background we have the unique opportunity to learn from someone who can offer us these valuable ancient teachings in a modern and relevant context in a clear, down to earth manner.
Your other teachers will be Gita (Melbourne) & Narayani (Sunshine Coast).
