If you fully engage with your surrounding and focus on yourself at the same time, you will see how fast you can improve yourself, your strength, flexibility, and relaxation.

They have all kinds of yoga at Pelan Pelan. They choose and combine various styles depending on your own requests. The yoga classes are given in small groups and are suitable for all levels of experience and age.

They specially love to practice Vinyasa Flow in order to link movement and breath flow. This style is famous for its smooth way to combine poses and breathing and bring different poses together in one sequence.

Each movement is synchronized to your breath and you will feel how you are getting stronger with every breath and pose you are practicing. Ashtanga, Baptiste, Jivamukti, Power, and Prana Flow yoga could all be considered as Vinyasa Yoga.

Location

This retreat will take place in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia. Bali is an island of Indonesia. It is mostly Hindu and becoming more and more popular. The beautiful rice fields, mountains, and beaches make it a must for people loving nature.

Besides nature, it is also a hot spot for artists, hippies, surfers, hipsters, celebrities, and the rich. Each village and area attracts its own people, making it possible to see Bali from a lot of different angles. The area around the retreat, Canggu, is known for its excellent surf, beautiful nature, and peacefulness. It is a nice getaway from the crowded areas in Kuta, which are more hectic and include a lot of tourism and partying.

It is the friendliness of the locals that make a lot of people want to come to Bali each year and Pelan Pelan finds it important to involve the local traditions and lifestyle in their retreats. Doing so creates an environment in which you can learn from them and they can learn from you, resulting in a lovely experience for everyone.

Canggu is not just famous for its waves but for the typical young surf lifestyle and its nightlife. You will find many cafés, bars, restaurants, and shops just 10 minutes away from Pelan Pelan Surf and Yoga Retreat, and if you feel like a night out dancing on the beach, that s no problem either in Canggu.
