YOGA

Hosted by our experienced teacher Dominique Kantey

Dom’s journey with yoga began in 2009 completing her first 240 hour Teacher Training Certificate in Ashtanga Primary Series with Jim Harrington. She’s also trained extensively with Shimon Ben Avi, most recently completing a 300 hour Advanced TTC. Dom teaches with the consecutive chakra/energy centres using the relative asana/yoga poses, colour & sound (which vibrate to a certain frequency) to access those areas releasing stored energy & allowing for free flow of prana/life force. It’s a form of Kundalini but the style is her own also influenced by her Iyengar teachers David Jacobs & Jurgen Meusel as well as Aditi Guar from whom she learnt a beautiful Sivananda practice in India. Her classes are strong but gentle & suitable for any level, even beginners.

Yoga practice will take place in our open-aired, yoga shala, flanked by rice fields and forest.

OZONE THERAPY

We can survive weeks without water and days without food, but only minutes without oxygen.
Ozone is an oxygen compound and life-giving, it is produced in nature to clean the air by attaching to pollutants and oxidising them. Without ozone, the planet earth would not exist.

All of our cells need a continuous supply of oxygen to generate energy and detoxify both internal and externally derived waste products. Shallow breathing, poor posture, refined foods, smoking, pesticides, environmental pollution or exposure to carbon monoxide, reduces our oxygen intake and decreases our optimal cellular functions which can lead to arthritis, low immunity, persistent tiredness, regular colds and flu, migraines, and reduced vitality. Steam Sauna ozone therapy will be administered by our experienced Ozone therapist, Carmen to increase our eliminative and cleansing capacity whilst promoting increased blood circulation and oxygen supply to the bloodstream and into your tissues. Through sweating our body cools itself and rids itself of toxins – the most natural attempt to cleanse itself.

ACCOMMODATION

Experience the best of Bali’s culture, food, flora, rituals and traditions in our inspiring, luxurious De Moksha Resort, surrounded by traditional Balinese villages, rice fields and forest. De Moksha offers an authentic appreciation of Balinese culture, away from the crowds of this iconic destination. Each of the eco-friendly villas offers a balance between sophisticated contemporary design combined with Indonesian craftsmanship, while the unique lush gardens complete the perfect, tranquil environment for healing.

Moksha, in the Hindu religion and philosophy, means liberation, which is the ultimate goal of human life, to be released from Samsara, the cycle of action, reaction and rebirth. This represents how we conduct ourselves and how we present our retreat.
