Welcome to Citta Retreat
Breathe. Connect. Awaken
Are you ready to connect?
+ With like-minded, heart-centred women who long to support you?
+ To your dreams, visions and forgotten power?
+ To your own heart-mind, your consciousness, your CITTA?
Citta retreat is a 6 night escape to magical Bali for women who want to take the ultimate journey within.
Join Kate Duncan and Tanya Savva on a transformational journey deep into your heart-mind (citta). Citta Retreat will encourage you rediscover what may have been lost in your daily world.
Time. Energy. Passion. Self.
These vital parts of existence that get lost in the mundane.
We know you’ve been giving away so much of yourself. You’ve been a hard taskmaster with great purpose and somewhere along the way you got lost in the busy-ness. It’s been difficult to stay connected to what really matters and you’re struggling to find your way back to your Self; to your heart.
It’s time to come home to you.
Citta retreat offers the opportunity to be nourished, rested and listened to. A space to awaken to your truth. At our stunning oceanfront location you’ll finally be able to breathe deep again, to feel your body, to hear its whispers, and reconnect with your true essence. The week will be an offering of yoga, meditation, inquiry and deep soul coaching work designed to send you home feeling refreshed, fulfilled, connected and empowered.
What you can expect
Upon arrival you will be greeted, offered a brief tour and given some time to settle in. We will meet for a beautiful beach side welcome dinner with traditional Balinese food (vegan and GF options available).
Each day will consist of two formal sessions in the morning: with yoga asana, mindful movement, dance, meditation practice, guided group coaching and transformational exercises.
The afternoons will be free time to process, rest and explore; until we meet for a pre-dinner session of yin or flow.
Throughout the week we will integrate healing practices like yoga nidra, sound healing, sacred dance, beach ceremony or intentional ritual.
All sessions will be held in safety, confidentiality and sacred spaciousness.
The yoga asana will be a mix of kundalini, hatha, vinyasa and yin. You can expect the style to vary: mostly gentle and slow; always with grace and compassion. Occasionally we will offer an optional power vinyasa. We will be flexible, open and guided by the needs and energy of the group.
Meditation instruction and offerings of both the Yoga and Buddha Dharma (teachings) will be woven throughout.
Included in the cost of retreat is a stunning full-day adventure that will be revealed only on the day. The 2019 retreat involved a secret waterfall hike and swim, a mindful walk through a holy water temple, lunch amidst spectacular rice terraces and an ancient sound healing inside a pyramid.
Also included is a one hour massage in the tranquil on-site day spa to be taken at the time of your choosing (additional treatments can be booked at a special retreat rate. Click HERE to learn more)
What you can eat
Our beautiful location offers three ridiculously delicious meals a day: ordered al la carte from three different menu options. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options are plentiful.
At each meal you can choose a main meal with any drink of your choice (alcohol not included) and your food can be ordered at any time. We will usually dine together, though this is not a necessity should you require some time for yourself.
There are two restaurants on site with different menus. The Health Hub restaurant boasts a highly nourishing and to-die-for plant-based menu, while the Beach Club options are extra tasty.
Excellent coffee and espresso, as well as cocktails beer and wine are available for purchase. While we encourage presence and clarity on this retreat, we also offer freedom from judgement. We wholeheartedly trust that you know what feels good to you.
