If your wanderlust dancing heart is longing to create your own energetic imprint in synch with your soul’s calling and to become a living vessel of purification through sacred ceremony, Prana Vinyasa yoga and transformative movement meditation, then join Delamay Devi and special guests for a week in mystical Bali.

Answer the desire for sacred activation at the core of your being. Times are changing fast and it’s hard to keep up, which is why it’s so vital to create space in your life to unplug, revivify and ground yourself, so you can live life fully with a renewed inner verve and kindred spirit support from a like-minded movement loving tribe.

Through our daily embodied ritual initiations, purification ceremonies and ample time resting in your sanctuary you’ll easily crack the self care code for long lasting change on your soul’s healing journey back to your essential self, facilitating a shift in vibration so you can move through life with effortless ease and a graceful strength.

Ubud translates as Medicine making it perfect for our week dedicated to radical self-care supported by Prana Vinyasa yoga, sunrise qi gong and movement meditation, as you learn to prescribe yourself the ultimate movement medicine daily. For centuries people have been magnetically drawn to the healing vortex of Ubud, traveling from all over the world seeking out potions and lotions from doctors, blessings and healings from Priests and ancient knowledge from Wise Women.

Wouldn’t it feel incredible to step into a sanctified yoga, movement and meditation practice each daythat is in alignment with the elements, moon cycles and seasons and meets your level of yoga regardless if you’re a beginner or a long time practitioner, leaving you feeling tuned in and unapologetic about your embodiment?

How great would it be to block off this week in your calendar for some precious me time so you can embark on a transformational healing journey supported by daily movement practices and a pampering package leaving you with a spring in your step, a glow on your cheeks and a deep sense of renewal and embodied satisfaction?

Isn’t it time to escape the mundane and follow your inner calling of self discovery to enrich, inform and fall in love with the mystery of life again after a challenging and hectic year that has left you feeling disconnected and frazzled around the edges? Yes, we’ve all been there and welcoming this much needed return to self.

Don’t you feel ready to dust off your dancing shoes, sprinkle on some glitter and let the rhythmic base beat take you on a journey into the ecstatic parts of yourself that thrives on the dance floor in a safe space of self expression, self exploration and self acceptance? The realm of free form movement invites you to embody your flow.

A certified taichi and qigong instructor, Aimo’s journey with taichi began in the UK at the turn of the millenium.

Originally he learned it to heal old injuries and know more about how the body and energy works. Since then he studied tai chi as a martial art in Malaysia through a traditional system of discipleship and is now also practising South East Asian combative arts. In the more recent years the focus of his practice has shifted to the meditative aspects of internal martial arts and how they help you become a more realised and conscious being.

His teaching methods use both traditional and modern approaches to help increase somatic awareness, martial skill and energy development. You can expect a balanced mix of learning through practice and in-depth detail. Most importantly, Aimo likes to share how the methods found in internal martial arts can be translated to your daily life on a physical, energetic and philosophical level – leading to a more relaxed way of living and being.

Aimo will be offering the daily sunrise Qi Gong sessions and available to answer any questions about additional activities you may wish to do in your free time.
