Hosted with Marla AND MIKE Cinilia on the sacred island of Bali
Explore the Self through the fusion of Hindu Mythology and Shamanism.
Rise is an all-inclusive eight-day immersion retreat to the bohemian seaside community of Uluwatu, Bali on the sparkling coast of the Indian Ocean. Join us on the sacred island as we elevate our yoga through the stories of Hindu mythology and the deep healing of Shamanic practices.
Our holistic curriculum includes daily Vinyasa/Hatha yoga, Kundalini, meditation, journeying workshops, poolside dream interpretation, a one-to-one year ahead projection tarot (per request), Kirtan, surf lessons (optional), and ample time daily to either explore the surrounding beaches or simply rest by the pool. Expect a deeply nourishing and delicious Ayurvedic vegetarian menu comprised of locally sourced, high vibration foods to support you.
The practices fuse the four directions of the Shamanic medicine wheel in correspondence with their associated deities from Hindu mythology. This program is progressive and will take you through deeper layers of awareness and self-inquiry day by day. The physical aspect of the practices will open your body and build your strength to access the potency of postures fully expressed. The energetic aspect of the practices will invite you to rediscover the wellspring of archetypal power you contain within.
This retreat is open to all levels — the only pre-requisite is that you be ready to open your heart to transformation!
The private luxury eco-villas are situated on the Southern tip of Bali’s pristine peninsula, Bukit with the closest beaches just a few minutes walking distance.
Known for its famous surf culture, the area has become a hotspot for all things holistic health and is home to many expats, world travelers, spiritual seekers and surfers alike who come to enjoy the high vibrational living among a diverse community of creatives.
The Villas are newly built in 2019 with the intention to host retreat immersions and mindful groups.
The property features open air traditional living with ample chill outs, spacious gardens, a pool and yoga Shala. Individual bungalows with ensuite bathrooms are nestled within the lush tropical foliage.
With locally inspired architecture which effortlessly incorporates nature and jungle bohemian decor, the villas are the perfect place for deep rest and relaxation, and provide a gateway to access some of the most beautiful beaches in Bali!
Bali’s energy is made up of lush and diverse lands — sparkling clear oceans, active volcanoes and rolling mountains. It is the only Hindu island in the Indonesian archipelago (over 8,000!) and invites the depth and devotion unlike no other.
Daily yoga and workshops focused on the Deity consciousness within Hindu mythology and Shamanic directions, led by three experienced yoga teachers.
Stay in eco-luxury cabanas minutes away from some of Bali’s most beautiful beaches.
Receive practical ways to apply the wisdom for your home practice and in the classroom. Yoga Teachers will have the opportunity to receive 20 hours Yoga Alliance Continued Education.
75 Minute relaxing deep tissue massage onsite.
Lauren and Marla fostered a beautiful sense of community, calm, and tranquility during my retreat with them. They both have a way of sharing their wisdom that is inspiring and eloquent but also leave the student feeling confident in their ability to incorporate that wisdom in their lives. The depth and breadth of knowledge that these two women have was apparent through out the retreat and was delivered in a way that is accessible to all students no matter where they are on their path.
