In the physical body we have two kinds of energy; one is known as prana and the other is consciousness -Tantric philosophy refers to Shiva (consciousness) and Shakti (creative energy). In yoga, the concept of prana is scientific - it does not mean the breath, air or oxygen - it means the original life force, and it exists to varying degrees in layers or sheaths around every thing in the universe - including every part of the physical body. With understanding & practice we have the power to increase our prana - effectively bringing more life force, healing & vitality to every aspect of being....
Join Uma Spender (Jessie Neave) for a week of deep immersion into your Prana Body, exploring the ancient science of the chakra system through a wide and colourful variety of Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Mantra and deepening workshops.
This course is designed for those who are interested in expanding their knowledge of traditional Yoga as well as going deeper into their own practice of healing and transformation. Each of the 7 unique days will bring focus to a different chakra, using a variety of techniques and Yoga styles over the course of the week, including Embodied Flow, Hatha, Tantra, Kundalini, Nada (sacred sound), chanting, Mythology and Tibetan Buddhism.
This Immersion is accredited through the International Yoga Alliance Australia - Teachers & Therapists are eligible to receive a 50 hour 'Subtle Body' Teacher Training Certificate (optional). Participants will be required to do an extra daily session, reading & homework as well as a follow up integration session.

“The accommodation was stunning, the food was pure, made from the heart and delicious. The balance of the sessions was rewarding, satisfying (even for a true beginner), mystical, magical, intuitive and empowering. Most of all I was in awe of how safe I felt within the group and especially with Uma. By safe, I mean that the space was held with respect for each other and the intention of the work has such deep integrity that it allowed me to connect to that part of myself. What genuinely comes to me is a tidal wave of positive, gushing appreciation - thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Carla Fletcher, Artist
"Uma's Yoga Retreat was one of the absolute highlights of the year for me. I cannot recommend her as a teacher and the spaces she creates any more highly than I do. I am not, for the record, a magic bendy person, but that's the beauty of working with Uma - she just meets you wherever you're at, and helps you from there. In a word? Awesome." Clare Bowditch
"I had never been on a structured retreat before going to Uma's retreat in Bali. I really didn't know what to expect and I was completely blown away. Her attention to detail in creating a wonderful healing, relaxing, unwinding, fun and inspiring environment was extraordinary. The setting was perfect, and the wonderful staff there were very attentive and so gorgeous to be around. I came away from the week ready to book the next one in. I learnt a lot, I let go, I surrendered, I opened, I cried, I laughed, I ate GREAT food, and in the end I felt so grateful that Uma is in the world and has the power and vision to guide us so beautifully. What a gift. Thank you -you are a true teacher. I would recommend this retreat to EVERYONE!" Danielle Caruana (MamaKin)
