Let Natalie guide you into deep meditations allowing you to reset your vibe. Learn a style of yoga that will increase the flow of lymph and blood and energy ten fold. As the fluids flow and energy moves you will clean and reprogram your cells, transforming old patterns to enhance your choices of today.
Revibe with sound, recreate through visualisation, rejuvenate as you stretch and massage, move in a gentle yet strong yoga style 'alchemy '. Remember there is an immense amount of power in gentleness. Some practices will be physically soft and flowing as we fuse yoga with tai chi movement, encouraging the flow of energy. Other practices will be physically strong working with our deep innermost core - our Soul, to activate the endocrine system.
Yoga - Alchemy Style, only 5 teachers in the world.
Chi Kung - energetic and breathing practices.
Meditation - silent, walking and sound.
Exploration through questioning and theory.
Energy work - learn to feel it in your hands and throughout the body, directing it where needed. Then move to your outer layers.
Non-invasive partner stretch and massage in a friendly and supportive environment as we create assisted healing.
Fun exercises to release pent up energy.
The universal chakra system and it's intervention with the endocrine system.
Elements of life - co-relating with the digestive system and emotions.
The Three Essences (Body, Soul, Spirit) of everything living and how this balances the pH system.
This work brings deep inner connection and life changing experience. You will become more aware of energy in and around you and how we shape and direct it by the mindset we create daily. You will be more synchronised with this universal energy enabling you to ride the wave
The rules are:
Respect the silent mornings, this is a time to process and awaken your own mind.
Be aware of each other's space.
Be kind to each other.
Be prepared to work.
Allow yourself to have fun.

Located in a small cultural village of Bondalem on the north east coast it is surrounded by coastline and jungle. It is a great place to experience the real Bali. There are magical waterfalls, hot springs and great diving on the reefs. The villa has many chill out areas and you can relax as you listen to the waves lapping the shore. Unwind and let the sea breeze take your cares away. A leisurely 3 hour drive from Kuta, 1 hour from Amed, 1 hour 20 mins from Ubud and 1 hour from Lovina. A steady stream of customers who have left dozens of reviews about how tasty the food is. The main eating area is attached to the main Villa, weather permitting we have alternate dining locations on the front seawall that overlook the beach and Bali Sea. We are very active in waste management and environmental conservation. We have stopped all aquarium poaching and bird shooting in the village. The reefs are now seeing large fish numbers returning and the jungle is full of bird songs.
Testimonials I can’t recommend this place enough. It was awesome!! The owners were kind and helpful. Their place is a beautiful garden right on the sea shore. There’s good enough waves for surfing, excellent for beginners and the owner has a selection of boards to borrow. Nice and spacious bungalows, great breakfasts, friendly support on every question or special request. We did a lot of diving directly in front of the resort we had a lot of fun and found many animals. Great for beginners and macro photographers.
