Friends, I have some really wonderful news! Do you remember back in December when I made my vision board for 2018, I included some images of me practicing yoga in the jungles of Indonesia...? Well it's only March and my vision for the year is already manifesting in spectacular fashion; even more beautifully and rapidly than I could ever have imagined! Next year, I just might have to put a crystal cave and a unicorn on that vision board...
As it turns out, in yet another example of the tremendous power of attraction, I'll be returning to my beloved Bali (the place where Jungle Shakti was born!) this June, for what I know will be another incredible, transformational experience. I've been invited along as a guest teacher for Light & Bliss – a travel and wellness company providing soulful retreats and luxury adventures in exotic destinations across Asia. Together with my kindred spirit, soul sister and fellow wellness warrior, Nina, I'll be hosting a 5 night retreat at B. Saya in luscious Ubud.
This retreat takes it's inspiration from the five elements – fire, air, earth, water and spirit. The program is curated with activities that will immerse us in these elements, taking us on a journey that is both light and fiery, allowing you to explore and deepen your practice.
The Five Elements
Earth | a grounding practice that involves nature and meditation walks, scenic landscapes within Ubud
Water | water temple ritual, yoga flow practice, waterfall and hidden canyon exploration
Fire | a powerful practice, Balinese cooking class, herbal sauna experience
Wind | gong bath meditation, yoga nidra, a celebration of music
Spirit | an art workshop allowing you to create something out of nothing

It's hard to say what I am looking forward to the most? Connecting with others on their spiritual path? Hell yes! Exploring a side of Bali that I have never seen before? For sure! Deepening my practice? Always! But then, let's get real for a minute and admit that I'm also really, really, really keen on trying out the local vegan cuisine and floating around in that gorgeous pool whenever possible. Ha! You knew I was going to say that, right?
Anyway, I truly hope to see you here in paradise in June. I would love to see some Jungle Shakti fans attending, share a green smoothie and practice yoga together in this exotic shala.
