Embodying the Goddess - A womens yoga retreat

About Bali
Bali, known as the Heart Chakra of the world, is a mag­i­cal place that every­one should expe­ri­ence at least once in a life­time. We con­tinue to return to Bali as a sacred pil­grim­age to align with our deep­est essence which is so read­ily expe­ri­enced and tapped into while on the sacred island.

About Kura Kura
Kura Kura is an inti­mate resort and offers you an oasis of seren­ity, a sanc­tu­ary for the body, heart and mind. It is a per­fect ground to reju­ve­nate and immerse into the magic of Bali. It is sit­u­ated along a small river and just a few steps away from the sea. The heart of Kura Kura is the yoga shala or com­mu­nity space next to a plunge pool for dip­ping. Most rooms are built around it and are clean and fresh as the breeze you can feel from the sea, but pro­tected and safe as the shield of a Kura Kura (Tur­tle).

Our Daily Rit­ual
Wake up to an ener­gis­ing Prana Flow® yoga prac­tice as we wel­come in the day with a vari­ety of cre­ative sequences to chal­lenge, inspire and cre­ate space inside for growth, change and inte­gra­tion of your God­dess self. There will be time for reflec­tion, intro­spec­trum, med­i­ta­tion and free writ­ing to release wis­dom of the uncon­scious mind. When you are not relax­ing by the pool, receiv­ing a mas­sage, enjoy­ing a beauty treat­ment or vis­it­ing a tem­ple you are wel­come to fill your time with what­ever your heart desires! Around sun­set time we will gather again for a beau­ti­ful restora­tive yoga prac­tice as we con­tinue to embody the God­dess. As each day pro­gresses and unfolds into the next we will make this daily rit­ual together, reclaim­ing our wild and authen­tic selves, liv­ing each moment in truth, mov­ing grace­fully and embrac­ing this exquis­ite time.

Accom­mo­da­tion /​Meals
All rooms are ele­gant and designed with pure sim­plic­ity. Each room has an ensuite bath­room with shower (warm/​cold water) and West­ern toi­let, com­fort­able beds cov­ered with fine mos­quito nets, a fan and veranda. There is the option of book­ing your own pri­vate room or shar­ing with another God­dess. If you are mak­ing this jour­ney with another God­dess and would like to share a room let us know dur­ing reg­is­tra­tion. You will be served like a queen as you enjoy all the bless­ings of island liv­ing. There will be three veg­e­tar­ian meals a day that are nutri­tious and deli­cious!
