TYMI HOWARD + AYF 2020 BALI RETREAT
We are excited to announce TYMI HOWARD will be co-hosting our 2020 Yoga+Wellness BALI RETREAT
Tymi's motto is to inspire people to discover their life's purpose through the art of yoga.
We could not agree more and hope you can join us for what promises to be a week of yoga, food and laughter along with plenty of relaxation and sun.
WHAT TO EXPECT: LOCATION
Desa Seni is in the heart of Canggu, just north of Seminyak (about 13km from Denpasar Airport).
It is walking distance or a scooter/taxi rider to some great cafes and restaurants where you will be spoilt for choice during the day and with views of beautiful sunsets over the oceans at the end of each day.
At Desa Seni you will discover the beauty of this boutique eco-village resort. It is the ideal sanctuary nestled in the middle of a rice field plantation in Canggu. The resort is a haven to awaken your mind and body, eat nourishing food, take a healing massage or relax by the large salt-water swimming pool.
There are two yoga shalas, an organic restaurant and spa - all set around the lush gardens.
40% of the land at Desa Seni is used for sustainable, organic farming. Desa Seni provides support and opportunities to locals living in the area.

WHAT TO EXPECT: SPA
The Merapu Svaasthya at Desa Seni is another sanctuary for you to enjoy and relax.
Merapu means “spiritual forces” and Svaasthya means “wellness.” These words embody every aspect of the Desa Seni village resort, but they are especially meaningful when you enter the spa.
WHAT TO EXPECT: YOGA
TYMI HOWARD + Sam Efraimsen from AYF will be co-hosting this retreat.
Tymi Howard is an internationally known, Yoga Alliance 500 E-RYT yoga teacher, certified holistic health coach and owner of Guruv Yoga Studios in the United States, pioneering the vinyasa and yin yoga movement throughout the world.
To Tymi, yoga is not a practice, but a journey. It begins with the spirit but does not end with rolling up the mat.
Yoga is not an activity, but a way of life; not an exercise, but a passion. Her approach to teaching yoga is to bring people closer to this philosophy and using it to achieve their life goals.
Sam Efraimsen loves a creative flow with music to keep you moving with the breath. You never know what you will get in the class.
Classes are tailored to who is in the room and how everyone feels. She literally goes with flow.
Sam appreciates how busy life can get and values the importance of integrating yoga off the mat and loves through the art of slowing down with restorative and yin style practices.
BEGINNERS WELCOME ... please don't ever think you are not flexible or experienced enough to roll out a yoga mat.
Both Tymi and Sam are experienced yoga teachers and all classes will cater for beginners through to advanced yogis.
The retreat will be the perfect way to develop your practice. You can do as much or as little yoga as you want.
This retreat is designed to recharge your batteries.
