Yoga Philosophy and Meditation Retreat

Bali, June 2019

Disconnect from everyday stress and rediscover your authentic inner self...

Retreat Overview...

With over fifty years combined experience in teaching, yoga and meditation, Linda Newman and Dylan Frusher have designed a stellar Yoga Philosophy and Meditation Retreat like no other.

Do you feel a calling for the life-affirming philosophies that underpin your yoga asana practice? Do you desire the practical tools to put a true yogic lifestyle into practice in contemporary life?

Then this retreat is specially designed for YOU.

An immersion program that will take you on a six-day journey tailored to you and your needs every step of the way. Each day you will learn ways in which India’s ancient yogic methods can be put into practise. Discover how to make spiritual philosophies a living reality through personalised contemplation and meditation. Find simple ways to harmonise your daily personal life with universal principles as taught by yogis centuries ago. Feel the benefit of a yogic lifestyle in which inner resources are harnessed to pursue a life of harmonious growth and fulfilment.

We will share our years of experience with you in group sessions, as well as optional one-on-one sessions. Your daily schedule includes guided meditation and instruction, Hatha-Raja asana practices, inspired by the teachings of Sri Dharma Mittra, and workshops. You will learn the nuances of yoga philosophy taught in a simple and practical style. Each day's classes will build on those of the previous day to ensure that you can integrate the methods properly. Enjoy the opportunity to share your experiences with the 200hr Teacher Training class, as you deepen your practice of yoga, philosophy and meditation alongside one another.
