Natassia Levine of Open Center Yoga will guide students in a week of daily yoga practice, guided meditation, gourmet vegetarian food and inward reflection at Sarinbuana Eco Lodge, in Bali, from May 15 through May 20. Rates include twice daily yoga, one workshop, a group temple tour and three gourmet, vegetarian meals per day, with organic tea, coffee and juice options.
A Yoga Alliance-certified Vinyasa Yoga Teacher, Levine describes the retreat as an opportunity to meet new faces, deepen one’s practice and recharge the soul. Students will begin each morning with yoga and meditation on the outdoor yoga deck. A relaxed itinerary will allow for spending the day freely, whether that entails swimming in a nearby waterfall, reflecting in a rice paddy or taking advantage of the Eco Lodge’s many options for self-care and personal enrichment, which are available for an additional cost.
“Sometimes you have to take an adventure and get away from everything familiar to connect with who you truly are,” says Levine, whose practice spans nearly 15 years. She currently teaches at Open Center Yoga, in historic Bristol Borough, and offers several weekly classes and monthly workshops. Levine also specializes in Drishti Yoga and has over 10 years of practice in Pilates.
Rates for the retreat do not include airfare or ground transportation. Ground transfer booking information will be provided with final itinerary. Students are advised to select flights that arrive at least eight hours before the start of the retreat.
