What is the meaning of life if we only have the surface experience?
This is a good time for a change!
“All emotion, even those that are suppressed have physical effect. Unexpressed emotion tend to stay in the body like a small ticking time bomb — they are illness in incubation.” Marilyn Van Derbur

“True wisdom only comes from our own personal experience”
Asana yoga practice is not only a practice for you as a physical being. It is mostly also training for you as a mental being. The more profound question when starting this practice is a question about “are you ready to commit yourself for your own well-being?”
“We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.” – Marianne Williamson. As we watched the pieces of our life stories fading away, we are preparing for the dawn of a new age, the age at which the life is said to begin.
We are like a butterflies preparing to break free from the chrysalis into the light, ready to spread our wings and feel what it is to be free, a freedom that is born from a deep realization in this healing journey.
The catalyst for this journey of introspection was the breaking of our hearts. Our hearts that was hardened from many old wounds, scars from turbulent past. The hearts that was shattered with an astounding glory that it felt as though it will remain forever broken and disconnected from ourselves, the wonder of the delusional thoughts that live inside each and every one of us.
As we watch the pieces of our hardened heart crumble to dust, we keep learning to understand and find something buried deep within. A consciousness that we had never before felt or experienced. The understanding of the consciousness by witnessing the feelings, the pain, the fear.
We have dealt with the previous pain, fear and anxiety by suppressing this extreme feelings or distracting ourselves with work, parties and avoiding of time alone. This time, in this retreat, is going to be different. Instead of suppressing the feelings, we will allow ourselves just to be.
These feelings that want to arise, will arise. And we will learn to recognize them and let them be. The feelings that will make us understand who we really are and rejuvenate our hearts. Heal the hearts and allow us to reborn within this life time.
Within the process we will learn and prove to ourselves that no fear is greater than the strength we have within us. And our life will never be the same. We will dive into ourselves and dig up all we had buried, in every skeleton and every corner of our joints. Look face-on at the parts of ourselves that we love by opening, understanding and healing every wounds we had ever allowed ourselves to carry.
We will walked ourselves through each memories and let us learn knowledge from them. For each and every situation we learn to observed and accept the responsibilities for all parts in all situations. We will learn to sit with our understanding of emotion, not judging or criticizing, just observing and allowing it to just be.
Within this week of retreat, we will begin our journey and bring calmness and sense of peace to our experience. Each shining path of the enlightenment will come to us as we learn about ourselves layers by layers, and we will find ourselves to be more present and living in the moment. The powerful energy from places we visit and the energy from our healing center will induce the healing process, renew ourselves, and give us protection when we return home.

The retreat will be held at Umah Shakti Yoga, home for the hearts that crave to explore, learn and experience life mindfully.

The surrounding energy is cleanse daily to maintain the purity and create strong rail of protection for us to live, and to practice our spiritual journey.

Daily Meditation, Pranayama and Gentle Asana Yoga
When we first hear about meditation or pranayama or asana yoga, many of us think that it is something complicated, something we cannot do or don’t have time for or something reserved for only certain types of people. The truth is, when we finally make time to do it, we may understand that it’s something we can do and will help us to understand ourselves better. All of these practice is aiming to help us become more relax. We will learn to allow our mind to rest, while the body is having time to heal. We will learn to connect our body and our mind and synchronize the language that might be lost between the two parts.
Healing Breath & Trauma Release Therapy
“You think freedom is something you can take of give? Freedom is just as essential as air, and without it, there is no life. There is only darkness.” – Guru Lahima.
As we breathe every day, we might think that our breath is something that is not so special. Thus, we have taken advantages of our breath. We never think of the breath during our daily life, cos we think there are many more things that is more important than the breath such as work or money. We don’t realize that without breathing, there is no life.
Through this practice we will learn a technique to approach our feelings with our breath. We will learn to understand and differentiate the complicated relation between emotion and feelings itself. We learn that emotion is something in the surface, while the deep within lied down feelings that we never touch, or even want to see. When we understand truly about how we feel, we will know what we want, thus we know what we should do in this life. Following the true desire and hidden talents that we always have. We may finally do things we love and find happiness in this life.

Practice making offering and Balinese Purification
In Balinese tradition, each of the purification required offerings that is made with natural material such as coconut leaves, flowers and fruits. The making process of this banten (the offerings in Balinese language) is as sacred as the purification process itself. Each of the offering represent the connection our our life and what is the goal of our life. Connecting each relation with the energy of the Paramatma Sang Hyang Widhi who inhabit each of our soul and give direction in this life.
The offering will be made by each of us (participants) with the direction from the assistant of the priest, who will led the purification ceremony. On the purification process we will use the banten that we have made. Purification ceremony is not only to cleanse the physical body, but also to enlighten the mental body. Create tranquility and peace in the mind also feelings of contentment in the heart.
Visit to the Biggest Botanical Garden on the island
We will visit a large tropical botanic park located in the central of the island, about 56 km from Denpasar area. This park is place for botanical research, conservation, recreation and education. It provide a place where we can relax in a beautiful and peaceful surround while learning about the function of the plants in our daily life. The park provides vast cool space to enjoy and meditate, also to practice yoga asana under the trees. This one day is going to be “back to nature” day for all of us!
Balinese Purification (Melukat)
Melukat is the ceremony that is spiritually purification the mind and the soul. This ceremony only carried out in the good day in it’s tradition. Purifying spiritually means a process to remove bad influence or klesa (Balinese term). Klesa translated as “dirty”, there are four klesas which are: Awidya (soul darkness that is come from egoist), Asmitha (attachment & craving), Dvesa (rejection and hatred) and Abhinivesa (fear). As this klesa always exist in human, the ceremony helps to reduce the klesa in the mind realm, thus can help the person to feel to calm and peaceful.
The first purification will take place at our home perform with the priest and the second purification will perform at the ocean. We believe that one of the most powerful source to cleanse ourselves is the ocean at dawn.
Art and Expression
One view of emotional expression in art is that, “It is proceeded by an excitement from a vague cause about which is a person uncertain and therefore they become anxious. This person then proceed to express their feeling and ideas through words or paint or stone, something they can create and they love to do, to clarify them and achieve the release of a tension.”
Instead of reflecting states of the external world, art is held to reflect the inner state of a person. At least, seems to be implicit in the core meaning of “expression” as the outer manifestation of an inner state. Through art, we will closer to ourselves. We allow the idea to be projected and manifest these ideas into the reality.

What’s Not included?
Practice yoga in Bali is a perfect experience in our life. The beautiful land of Gods provide powerful source of energy helps our nature to regain and rebuild the life force inside ourselves, including the wheel of life, our chakras.
At the inner core of each of us spin seven wheel energy centers, called chakras. Swirling intersections of vital life force, each chakra reflects an aspect of consciousness essential to our lives. Together the seven chakras form a system for that consciousness enables us to better ourselves — in the mind, body, manner and behavior and finally to enlighten our tradition and culture. This system is a valuable tools for personal and society growth.
Chakras are center of activity for reception, assimilation and transmission of life forces. All of our action and understanding arise and return to this points within ourselves, the chakras, as the core centers form a coordinating networks to our complicate body and mind system. This centers of chakras instinctual behavior to consciously planned strategies from emotional to artistic creations that governs our life, love, learning and illumination. Like the rainbow bridge, our chakras channel between mind and body, spirit and matter, past and future, Heaven and Earth.
The chakras are spoken of both as actual center and metaphor for the way our mind and body work together. It is a metaphoric qualities to express and expand mind, body and spirit focus on a gradual healing of both the inner personal quality and outer society relations, thus finally create an evolution of a human quality.
The chakra system works through many different quality of person. The lower quality support higher quality to be achieved, vice versa, the higher quality cannot the express before the lower quality is clearance. Qualities relates to chakra system as below:
When we work with chakras, we cannot separate our intelligent and our spiritual understanding. Both body of the material world, must be connected with the body of the spiritual world. Thus the healing will happen.

Chakra Healing Programs
Pranayama comes from Sanskrit word which translated into “the extension of the prana”. Pranayama contains two words: “prana” which means life force and “ayama” means to restrain or control the prana.
Prana as the life force is a form of energy which we cannot see, touch, smell, hear or feel the physical form. However, this energetic exist within our body and helps us to maintain our bodily circulation. The energetic enforcement is a very subtle form, thus in order to connect, regain and maintain it’s quality, the practice must be done in a very gentle and soft technique most efficiently through breath.
Therefore we often known pranayama as a set of breathing technique sequences that helps us to improve to maintain the quality of our physical body and also helps to empower our mental body. Thus, when practice pranayama we must include our quality of the mind and thoughts, as it will influence the quality of our practice.
Benefits of practicing pranayama are mainly helps us to clear the mind, so we understand the path of spiritual journey and not being captured or stuck in this crowded life. Pranayama also helps to decrease stress and confusion, helps to regain self-confidence and self-comfort through understanding of the truest-self-desire.
Pranayama comes from the word “prana” which means energy and “yama” which has the closets meaning with the word “control/ maintain” in English language. Pranayama practice works with control, maintain, restore energy in the body both mental and physically through breathing technique. The result of this practice is a full understanding of being in the relax state.
In this intensive practice, we are focusing Nadhi Sodhana and Ujjayi breath, two of the strongest and the most basic practice in pranayama breathing technique. Simple breathing technique you can continue practice at home which will give you a long lasting benefit throughout your life time.
