16 Apr Open To Grace Retreat with Barbra Noh and Soham Johansen 24th – 30th September 2023
Join Barbra Noh and Soham Johansen for a delicious dive into Anusara Yoga and Tantric Philosophy. Delight in the peace and beauty of Desa Seni A Village Resort – a stunning and unique haven.
Discover the vibrant shopping, restaurants and cafes of Canggu.
Barbra and Soham will teach in English.
How would it be to look at life and yoga through the eyes of a Tantrika?
How vibrant would it feel to be human if breath, body and heart were pulsating in unison?
How fragrant would the dawn be, if we could taste all the flavours of life from the bitter to the sweet, simply by allowing a highly intelligent and benevolent energy to guide us?
This is what Barbra and Soham would like to explore with you on this retreat at the stunning village resort Desa Seni in Canggu, Bali.
Yoga Classes & Tantric Philosophy
Barbra’s morning Anusara Yoga class will support you in finding your optimal alignment for a joyful and juicy asana practice that leads you into a deep appreciation of who you are. Carried by heart themes, her classes are intended to give you an embodied experience of the philosophical concepts that Soham will present.
Soham will delight you with his unique humour as well as his in depth knowledge of tantric philosophy and Sanskrit scripture. His lectures will enrich you as he shares ancient wisdom that is perfect for modern yogis.
Both teachers will guide you in a silent, early morning ritual of pranayama and meditation. Restorative Yoga with Soham or Asana Clinic with Barbra will close the day.
Additional to a stunning schedule of yoga and philosophy classes, this program gives you options for meals together, connection with community and time for yourself.
One highlight planned is to do some sunset gazing. The volcanic black sand beach is a 5 minute scooter ride away. Canggu sunsets are quite magical.
