Shades of Yoga recently held its first 5 Day Luxury Yoga Retreat on the stunningly beautiful island paradise Nusa Lembongan. The Retreat was hosted by Indiana Kenanga Boutique Hotel and was a resounding success.
Our guests were greeted upon arrival at Bali’s international airport and transported to their various hotels in Sanur for the evening. After enjoying a relaxed breakfast the following morning, they were whisked away to the harbour and from here they made the 30 minute boat trip away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Bali and arrived on the picturesque and quiet island of Nusa Lembongan. Greeted by turquoise blue water and the friendly smiles of the Indiana Kenanga staff, our guests were soon sipping on refreshingly cool lemon and mint welcome drinks and relaxing by the poolside at the hotel.
The week was spent practicing yoga, relaxing and taking in the various activities on offer at the hotel and on Lembongan island. The yoga was separated into twice daily classes, morning and evening, and in alignment with Shades of Yoga’s principles of strength and safety in yoga. Shades of Yoga’s policy of keeping the numbers of clients low for our retreats ensured that each guest received a large proportion of individual attention during the yoga asana classes in order to get the maximum benefit from the retreat. Tips and sequences were taught in order to ensure that our guests could go home and confidently practice yoga in the privacy of their own homes once the retreat was over.
Spare time during the day was spent lapping up the luxuries on offer at Indiana Kenanga Boutique Hotel which included free spa treatments, delicious meals at the 3 Star Michelin Restaurant, discovering the tropical marine wonders of the pristine underwater reefs whilst snorkelling, trying out the Stand-Up Paddle Boards on the lagoon and exploring the Mangrove Forest on Lembongan Island.
Over the course of the week our guests really got to know each other, shared plenty of smiles and social media details and promises to stay in contact, and of course, to return to this beautiful island as soon as possible. All in all, it was a highly successful week, and Shades of Yoga looks forward to sharing this amazing trip with all of you as well!
