NOURISH YOUR SPIRIT
CONNECT TO YOUR CREATIVITY
Gift yourself S P A C E away from your day-to-day activities and re-connect to the inner calm that aligns you with your true self and creative spirit. What would it take for you to live in your highest expression of happiness, love and joy?
My intention for the retreat is that you gain a greater capacity to truly rest in the inner sanctuary of your being and recognise all the ways you can bring that into your daily life.
Be in a place of beauty and spirituality that supports a deeper connection to trust in your inner guidance, wisdom, and creativity
This program has been lovingly thought out and designed to clear away the “clutter” of thoughts and re – ALIGN you to the divine presence within and all around you. What would it take for you to fully SHINE?
You’ll re-emerge after the 8 days / 9 nights refreshed and rejuvenated with a deeper connection to yourself and others that invites a more joyful creative way of living.
9 nights accommodation.
Daily Morning Yin-Hatha yoga and Evening Yin Restorative Yoga. The practice is gentle, lots of stretching, and suitable for absolute beginners as well as experienced.
7 days chakra activation (one each day) that includes mantras, mudras, meditations to awaken our seven major energy centers.
Breakfast and Dinner home-cooked Balinese food on site. Oh my goddess, it is so good!

Sound Healing – lie down and be immersed in diverse healing vibrational sounds to support the integration of letting go of the old and inviting in the new.
Align & Shine – Sharing in Circle. Connection and support of others assists us all to let go of what no longer serves and helps us invoke what will bring more joy into our lives so we can live the fullest expression of who we are. Inspirational meditations, visualizations, contemplation, journaling, and mindfulness practices to guide you gently inward to your hearts callings and how those translate into your life.
A day of art and play with Karja – internationally known contemporary artist. Even if you’ve never painted before and you don’t consider yourself an “artist” or creative person, Karja’s passion, fascinating life story, and skills as a teacher will guide you into his world of creativity and help you open into new unknown territories of creativity within you.
Time-In – You will have plenty of free time to rest, wander, explore on your own.
TESTIMONIALS FROM 2016 RETREAT
This retreat is for women who genuinely want to nourish their inner self. Aesha has a gift for creating space for each woman to soften, align and expand themselves. If you are ready …. go for it!

Aesha’s retreat was nurturing, challenging and expanding. It allowed me to “go there” in my healing, and some of the experiences we had were profound. A lovely balance between meditation, yoga and activities with free time to explore. I loved the space Aesha held for each one of us.
” HEALING, NURTURING, POWERFUL”Jo Muir (Australia), August 2016
The most nurturing experience ever. this retreat came at the perfect time in my life. I love Aesha’s gentle, loving, grateful, nurturing energy. The week was planned and coordinated beautifully from the car collecting us from the airport to the excursions (high priestess was out of this world!) to the car taking us back to the airport. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Aesha’s yoga style is wonderful and my body feels free for the first time in a very long time. The art class was something I wasn’t holding much expectation, I didn’t see myself as creative at all and I loved it. A beautiful meditative experience. Finally, the way Aesha holds space for women is beautiful. We all felt safe, loved and held. A retreat not to miss and I will be back.

Aesha, I write this from the heart. I had moments of grace, wonder, angst, sadness, peace and understanding over the 7 days and you watched over my emotional and chakra wobbles with wisdom and grace. I won’t forget. Thank you.
REVEALING, SUPPORTED, KINDNESSShalini Nandan-Singh (Australia), August 2016
Someone who can call in 10 powerful women to share in 7 days of Bali bliss is a gift from the universe. Such a blessing. Thank you.
WHOLESOME, BLESSED, ALLOWINGJacqui Rae Anderson (Australia), August 2016
After a traumatic year in 2015/16 this was a wonderful gift to myself. The retreat was everything I hoped for it to be and more. To spend a week with all these wonderful women, each on their own journey and with their own gifts to share, consolidated my growth and gave my new life a boost into the present/future. Everything has fallen into perfect place.
NOURISHING, RELAXED, EMPOWERINGKate Grosso (Australia), August 2016
Aesha has an amazing gift in creating a safe space, comfortable for reflection and growth. Thank you.
PEACEFUL, ENRICHING, LUSHMichelle McLean (Australia), August 2016
The word Ubud in Balinese means “medicine”. This retreat is medicine for the mind, body and soul. Yoga is practiced twice daily with guided support. The family at Santra Putra Guesthouse provide traditional meals with love and care that are just wonderful. If you are thinking you need time to think and time to practice yoga and meditation you must come along to one of Aesha’s retreats. Highly recommended.
GROWTH, LOVE, SPIRIT MIRACLESAngela Ryan (Australia), August 2016
I have been looking for a retreat for years and have finally found the best. Something I needed to do for myself to find myself again. I feel so blessed and will do this retreat again. You owe it to yourself as I have found. Thank you Aesha.Rose Barnett (Australia), August 2016
“I haven’t done a “retreat” or “workshop” for many years. I am so glad that I was privileged to be present at Aesha’s first Women’s Retreat in Bali.
Before leaving I had been feeling a bit stale. After that special week I was feeling totally refreshed.
Yoga, meditation, creativity, yes we did.
Relax, connect, create, share, yes we did.
The location, the accomodation, the delicious local food provided, the Balinese family, the art class and other activities were all excellent but it was the small group of magical women that added that extra something.
Thank you Aesha for holding us in a space that we could trust and expand in.
I hope that I get to go there again.
Love that frisky feeling.”
“For a real uplift and re-igniting of spirit, I thoroughly recommend the wonderful retreat run by Aesha Kennedy. Her professionalism in organising daily activities, twice daily yoga, meditation, spa treatments and private space to discover the beautiful countryside around Ubud – combine with her compassion to enable all of vary stages of life, to leave feeling focused and centered. This retreat is a great gift to oneself.”Heather (Australia), August 2014, 2015, 2016
