Rachel May Yoga Ayurveda Tantra Bali Yoga Retreat Program

This yoga retreat program will also count toward 30-hour CEU for those with a 200 or 500-hour Yoga Alliance certification. There will be two classes a day, morning and evening class.

Morning session

The morning session will include restorative pranayama and asana techniques of the Kaula lineage, supporting a deep connection to the internal world.

Evening session

The evening session will include deep meditations (including yoga Nidra, Bhutta shuddhi, Shava yata, and more) and restorative asana to allow for deep rest and relaxation.
