BALI LUXURY YOGA RETREAT
FEBRUARY 15—21, 2015
SPIRIT OF BALI
SEA, SERENITY & BLISS
Experience local rituals, cuisine and culture as you bask in the healing forces of sun, sea, yoga, massage and the gentle spirit of Bali. The setting is a stunning private villa within walking distance to the beach and the local village of Pemuteran. Hike, bike and enjoy world-class diving and snorkeling, or just relax, lounge and spa. Luxury accommodation and complimentary massages.
FLOW OF THE DAY
MORNINGS begin with fresh coconut juice and a serenity walk around the lush gardens. Our morning yoga finds us in the beautiful open-air yoga shala flowing through a fusion of Hatha-Vinyasa-Iyengar that weaves in pranayama, music and meditation. After yoga enjoy a delicious tropical brunch! Think mango, papaya. . .
AFTERNOONS are free to swim, spa or luxuriate in a long afternoon siesta! Get out on the water with snorkeling or diving, or stay on site to enjoy the pool area, treat yourself to a massage, or hike around the region for spectacular views while discovering the flora and fauna of the land. For a taste of culture, head into the little town of Pemuteran for lunch, browse shops and strolling.
EVENINGS arrive with a relaxing sunset yoga practice of restoratives, pranayama and meditation. A delicious dinner will be artfully prepared by our personal villa chef, or nearby restaurants to taste the local recipes, flavors and ingredients.

WHY THIS RETREAT
Gayle is an amazing yoga instructor with an incredible depth of knowledge in a wide range of practices. She is a skillful teacher- I truly cannot imagine a better yoga teacher. I loved the restorative yoga sessions and Gayle’s very gentle, kind way of making all of us feel that we were doing a good job. I liked how she managed to find the time to check in with each individual to make sure they were comfortable, or challenged or whatever was needed.Donna Brecht, USA
Thank you for this retreat; every minute was worth it! It was such a mind, body and heart opening. . . and so much fun!

Gayle has the unique ability to be kind and caring while pushing your yoga practice to the next level. She creates a flow that is beautiful, feels amazing and challenges you to become stronger. This program will forever be life changing. The experiences I have had this week will be cherished forever. —Julie Cameron, USA
I loved how you gave us the foundation and core elements of a proper yoga practice. You took the time to really show us how to get the most of what we were learning. Exceeded the level of expectation that I had. Can’t believe how much I learned and shared. The group was wonderful and I look forward to the friendships that I forged. —Leslie Rubin, USA
Before meeting Gayle I had tried a number of teachers, some of them with excellent reputations in London and India, but yoga never really came alive until I started studying with her. Gayle’s intuitive, sensitive and phenomenal teaching skills helped me to totally live inside my body and find new depths in my practice. Gayle makes yoga both accessible and challenging. She brings the spirit of healing and freedom into her classes and all the fellow students I’ve met, find her an unforgettable teacher.—Deborah Poland, Canada
An Exotic Yoga Retreat is an executive woman’s dream vacation. Blackberry and office demands are put aside for a week to focus on relaxing, healthy eating, meditation and yoga. I came back thoroughly recharged, and plan to repeat my experience annually.—Pat Dunn, USA
