Description of the Retreat: Your Invitation to slow down.
Rejuvenate in pure nature, blend into the blue skies and the spectacular beauty of your tropical surroundings, tune into your own natural flow, blossom and shine - free to be yourself in every single moment.
Gift yourself with custom crafted yoga classes (beginners welcome), divine body treatments, walking meditations, wild dance, relaxation sessions, Balinese cooking class, creative workshops, nature excursions, day trips to temples and dazzling markets, and a small group of like-minded people being joyful, just like you!
Have you felt the call for taking a break from the known, a call challenging you to take time off, go deeper into yourself and to your connection with nature?
Join me and a small group of like-minded people in beautiful Bali and experience mindful living and being aware of the present moment in everyday life. Come as you are. Whatever your spiritual experience, level of yoga, meditation or level of fitness is. You are welcome.
Accommodations: Set in a small village, just 7 kilometers from Ubud, the art & cultural centre of Bali-lies a place where art and nature merge seamlessly, and time seems to slow down. Your spacious private Villa, a luxurious haven from which to enjoy both the peace and the delights of Bali, located amid lush gardens and jungle and overlooking a gorgeous valley in the Balinese countryside. Here you will find antique furniture and art, modern comforts and amenities, and a gorgeous saltwater infinity pool.
The Villa is located in the traditional village of Banjar Bukian in Payangan. Only 60 families live here, so it is easy to soak up authentic Balinese culture, including elaborate temple ceremonies, gamelan music and the beautiful warmth of the locals.
The Villa makes use of traditional Balinese and Javanese architecture, as well as contemporary design elements creating an exotic rustic charm. There are four separate cottages, each with its own character and decor. Each cottage has modern appliances and amenities for luxurious comfort, there is a wooden joglo that serves as a living space and dining area, ample of privacy and space, and a fully equipped kitchen where the staff will prepare some of your exquisite meals.
How long has the your company been running retreats? 1 year
Instructor name and bio: My name is Mei Shapiro, founder of Come Back to Yourself Retreats. You know as well as I that certain moments in life call to us, however faintly, for a change of pace. The need to go elsewhere and just be. Each retreat I lead is a combination of mindful living, yoga, relaxation, physical activities, creativity, dance, movement and having fun.
Given my own corporate past and having benefited so much from the holistic approach I understand and acknowledge the essential need for finding a balance between work and life, between body and mind.
I would like to share that wonderful experience with you and help you find simple ways that work for you. Everyone is capable of making these changes in their lives, and it always starts with the little things - sometimes they are right under your nose where you just can't see them!
Coming Back to Yourself are my offering. Let me show you simple practical ways to slow down, blanace, reflect, smile, enjoy, embody and go home a fuller happier version of yourself. More aware of being perfect as you already are.
I love playing music, yoga, being underwater, wild dancing, painting, long walks on the beach, peaceful tea breaks, silent moments and magical sunsets.
I am Canadian, fluent in English and French. I am passionate about travelling, nature, different cultures and places. At the moment I am living in the Golden land, Myanmar (Burma). Would love to share with you ideas and inspirations about living a fuller, more enriched life and most importantly, having fun!
