Jesse gently challenged our minds and bodies with gradually intensifying postures and Asana sequences, supporting and correcting as needed and encouraging each one of us to move beyond our individual limitations or, alternatively, respectfully acknowledge them. There was a lot of humor in the room too! With 2 serious yoga sessions per day, and a variety of inspired transpersonal activities presented during 2 daily ‘circles’, there was also enough ‘free’ time to do your own thing, and to go on some outings and participate in some additional activities - including a transformative walk up a volcano in the predawn darkness to see the simultaneous sunrise and moonset from the peak; a visit to luxurious hot springs and a Balinese cooking class within the comfort of our resort.

I feel like I received much more than I anticipated, when signing up, and that this particular yoga retreat in Bali was a very comprehensive package, and very good value. I truly feel very fortunate and grateful to have made the decision to go.
