Dynamic Yoga Retreat Bali, Louisa Raszyk Sept. 22nd – 27th 2016

 

2016-04-19 07.03.50

 

 

 

I am very excited to announce another Dynamic Yoga retreat in Bali, from September 22nd – 27th, at the magical, remote north coast retreat of Villa Boreh. Following the wonderful experience of the April retreat, I have had many students wanting to come back or come for the first time. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the deep sensitivity and intelligence of the Dynamic Yoga Method, in an authentic retreat situation, away from the demands and distractions of your daily life.

 

Villa Boreh is a very beautiful and special place that was built 15 years ago specifically to hold yoga retreats. The perfectly kept Balinese bungalow accomodations are woven seamlessly though leafy tropical gardens and small temple spaces, swimming pools and rest areas, cool quiet spa rooms, open air bathrooms nestled in tropical gardens, and all of this right on the ocean’s edge. It really is an exceptional place that has been constructed according to geobiology under the instruction of local priest and shamans using mostly Balinese architecture and materials. It is intimate and traditional, but still quietly and unobtrusively offers all the conveniences of a quality resort.

I propose a five day, five night retreat, offering five meditation, pranayama and asana classes in the mornings, and five late afternoon meditation and restorative, nourishing classes. The first class will be the evening of your arrival, the last will be the morning of your departure. You will have afternoon time free to simply relax, doze, read a book, do more yoga! Or explore, making the most of optional activities available: onsite spa treatments, visits to waterfalls, temples, the local healer, cultural tours with knowledgable and bilingual guides, scuba diving, sunrise dolphin excursion, etc. I have purposefully chosen a venue that is very remote – there are no distractions, no nearby town and tourist attractions, so that the particiapnts are invited to enjoy the experience of a true yoga retreat.

 

I am a Senior Dynamic Yoga teacher and shiatsu practitioner with 20 years’ teaching experience. I have had a daily yoga self-practice since 1989. The Dynamic Yoga Method is based on self-inquiry and uses safe, accessible movements and shapes to allow the mind to soften and merge with a deeper consciousness. In doing so, we naturally become more intimate with life, more open to the present moment, and more present and open to those around us. These group classes are appropriate for all people who do not have major injuries, illnesses or disabilities, in which case personal instruction is recommended.

Dynamic Yoga Retreat in Bali with Louisa Raszyk, 16-21st April 2016

Yoga retreat Bali Flyer Louisa Raszyk 1.0 JPG

Dear students and friends,

 

I hope this email/post finds you well and enjoying the cosy Parisian winter. I am still in Australia and will be back in Paris this June.

 

AtI have just visited the magical island of Bali, researching remote, authentic yoga retreat centres to find the perfect place to offer retreats to my Australian and European students (well, it’s not quite halfway, but it’s the best option I could think of!). I am happy to say that I have found the perfect retreat centre with a wonderful, professional staff, in the secluded north of the island, far from any touristed areas. Tejakula and Singaraja are some of the oldest spiritual centres on the island, and the beautiful deep Balinese spiritual energy is alive and well here. I will be holding the retreat from 16th -21st April, 2016, and if you wish to arrive earlier or stay longer, this can be arranged.

 

Villa Boreh is a very beautiful and special place that was built 15 years ago specifically to hold yoga retreats. The perfectly kept Balinese bungalow accomodations are woven seamlessly though leafy tropical gardens and small temple spaces, swimming pools and rest areas, cool quiet spa rooms, open air bathrooms nestled in tropical gardens, and all of this right on the ocean’s edge. It really is an exceptional place that has been constructed according to geobiology under the instruction of local priest and shamans using mostly Balinese architecture and materials. It is intimate and traditional, but still quietly and unobtrusively offers all the conveniences of a quality resort.

 

I propose a six day, five night retreat, offering six meditation, pranayama and asana classes in the mornings, and six late afternoon meditation and restorative, nourishing classes. You will have afternoon time free to simply relax, doze, read a book, do more yoga! Or explore, making the most of optional activities available: onsite spa treatments, visits to waterfalls, temples, the local healer, cultural tours with knowledgable and bilingual guides, scuba diving, sunrise dolphin excursion, etc. I have purposefully chosen a venue that is very remote – there are no distractions, no nearby town and tourist attractions, so that the particiapnts are invited to enjoy the experience of a true yoga retreat.

 

The first class will be the evening of your arrival, the last will be the morning of your departure. If you don’t know about me, please see the website of my Parisian studio, the Red Earth Centre, which I founded in 2003 www.redearthcentre.com. I am a Senior Dynamic Yoga teacher and shiatsu practitioner with 20 years’ teaching experience. The yoga I teach is based on self-inquiry and uses safe, accessible movements and shapes to allow the mind to soften and merge with a deeper consciousness.

The classes are appropriate for all people who do not have major injuries, illnesses or disabilities, in which case personal instruction is recommended.

 

The retreat will cost €1050 (AUS$1600) and this includes:

  • transfers
  • 12 yoga, meditation and postural classes (30 hours)
  • all meals – delicious, healthy and prepared using Villa Boreh’s own organic garden produce
  • beautiful shared accommodation (single accommodation available at an extra cost according to availability)

Red Earth Centre welcomes Sergio Iglesias

Hello all,

So here we are again at the end of the year – it went by so fast! I wanted to share some news of the centre before the big August break.

The BIG news, as most of you already know, is that I will be leaving Paris in September to spend some time with my family in Australia. I will continue whilst there the exciting project of translating Godfrey Devereux’s interpretation of the Yoga Sutras with my partner Benoit (soon to be published by Synchronique Editions).
Since there are no other Dynamic Yoga teachers in Paris, I am bringing an excellent Dynamic Yoga teacher from Switzerland to take care of you in that wonderful Dynamic Yoga way! Sergio Iglesias (www.yogabasliea.ch) will start classes in the rentrée from the 8th of September. He is a longterm, experienced practitioner and teacher, and he will maintain the present schedule, adding an extra class – Wednesdays 19H30.
I will still be here in September for a few weeks, and I am organising an Open Day on Sunday 14th September, where you can come and take a class with Sergio, and say hello!
My last class will be tomorrow, Monday 28th July 19H45. The centre will be closed, as every year, during the month of August.
The centre will reopen on Monday 8th September at 18H, with Sergio’s first class of the rentrée.
I hope to see you soon – either at my classes in the coming days, or at the Open Day September 14th.

Have a great summer!

Love
Louisa

Kids’ Yoga at Red Earth Centre

Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher training

Kids’ yoga classes are back at the Red Earth Centre!

Sharon teaches traditional Integral yoga poses to children and helps them practice them through songs, games and stories.   The children learn about meditation and how to use it to calm their minds using age-appropriate meditation techniques.  The stories that Sharon uses in her classes teach the children about honesty, respect, courage, friendship and anger management.  Many of the activities are very high energy, but there is always time in her classes for quiet reflection and relaxation.
