Back to Bali. What a sense of relief, as if when you are far away from someone you love very much and finally we meet again. Bali, my love. I missed you dear Island.
Writing from the airport in Dubai and I already feel the thrill of returning to one of my homes, if I may call it. In my life I have lived in different places and each one becomes a home, in its own way, and each one has a different space in my heart. Like every child you have, there is always room to more love.
I come back for the third retreat I organize in Bali since back in Portugal, after having lived almost 4 years with my family in Ubud. It's the second retreat with Sílvia, which I challenged to accompany me on this adventure a year ago. Between the 25th and 31st we will be joining forces for a beautiful week with lots of yoga, blessings, love, good food, massages, Balinese cooking classes and as always some surprises!
Then comes the Bali Spirit and the program is already online. I'm going to teach two classes at one of the most beautiful yoga festivals on the planet, 11 years old now and already the 5th I am participating (time flies!). A week full of yoga, dancing, conversations, inspirations, wisdom.
It is a space of love and devotion. Meghan and Rob, who together organize, are the genius minds and visionary souls who decided to produce this festival 11 years ago when yoga was not as fashionable as today. I already practiced then and I remember that I had just been the mother of my Carlota and I therefore did not come but I asked Niki to attend and I still keep the first yoga t-shirt from Ubud. The seed was planted. Today I teach on the stage of the festival! Dreams do come true and even surprise us.
And I woke up in Bali. I miss my girls with me.. but was not possible to bring them this time after India… but as Bali never lets us down, they will have a surprise for Easter and Bali is coming to them. I cant say more as they read this post ::))
The sound of the nature is meditation.
The kelapa (coconut) nourished me. And the massage with Kadek. Heading into town. Thank you Bali - I missed you dear island. Good to be back.
