UNEARTH with Love Yoga Retreat with Gabrielle & Rani

UNEARTH with Love Yoga Retreat with Gabrielle & Rani

28 - 31 October 2022

The Residence, Bintan 

  

Over the course of the pandemic the tidal currents and waves of our lives have changed so drastically. So much of what we endure remains socially-distanced, suppressed, repressed and unspoken about. The burdens on our backs will remain heavy until we reclaim our personal sense of freedom in the present. The intention of this greater journey is to Unearth the previously unknown, things forgotten and those elements which we hide. When low tide arrives, and if we allow our practice to strip back the ocean and reveal the sandbanks that reside under the surface, that greater moment of freedom becomes ours.

  

Healing is never easy, and often requires us to break down the facades that allow us to function day-to-day, in order to rebuild. But rebuild we can - better, and with the strength and inner wisdom drawn from our life experiences.

  

This retreat is so much more than a sweet escape - it is a time of Unearthing. Sitting with yourself and getting curious about what lies beneath the deeper layers that are knotted, coiled and resistant to exploration might seem daunting. So go slowly. Give space for playfulness, Approach the same body from different perspectives - Get uncomfortable, move with purpose, laugh at yourself. Take time for introspection. Listen to the deeper unwinding emanating from the inside-out; and with courage, lean into this inner-unravelling. Devote yourself to it. Tap into the collective to experience a renewed depth of connection as we move through this journey together. 

 

Join Gabrielle and Rani as they bring you a specially-curated loving journey of discovery where both movement and stillness will Unearth a practice that becomes your own inner medicine. 

5-star resort and Travellers' Choice 2022 winner, The Residence invites you to luxuriate in the abundance of space and the closeness of nature. This idyllic retreat combines the rural charm of a traditional Asian village with a luxurious modern twist. On top of 70 hectares of verdant landscape that invite you to unwind in true comfort and relaxation, the resort has beach access and activities right at your door step, with a picturesque sandbank that reveals itself during low tide. 

   

From gourmet creations to soul-pleasing comfort food, elevated pampering beauty rituals at the spa and a sun-soaked sea sport adventures, The Residence has it all, for a perfect getaway. The fully-equipped, air-conditioned Yoga Shala, along with the outdoor Yoga Deck will be sure to offer a variety of practice experiences during the retreat. 

   

The resort’s 127 terraces and villas, including beachfront villas with a private pool, are a beautiful fusion of simplicity and sophistication, pairing clean contemporary lines with touches of local Indonesian style. Designed to tread lightly on and embrace the beauty of the natural surroundings, these private retreats spoil you with a luxurious sense of space and panoramic views. 

  

Rooms are available on a first-come-first-served basis upon registration and settlement of full payment for the retreat.

About Gabrielle Mendoza 

After having crumbled under the stress of the corporate world and reclaimed her lost self through yoga, Gabrielle now follows her dharma to help others to manage their stress through the means of mindfulness, meditation and the discipline of yoga. 

 

Gabrielle is trained in AcuYin, the interweaving of two profound and potent practices - Acupressure and Yin Yoga, as created by world-renowned Jo Phee. In line with her training in Yoga Therapy by Yoga Medicine, she helps her students to decipher the origins of blockages, and release them through relevant asanas and acupoints using the TCM approach of Meridian Yin Yoga. Her training in Yoga Therapy has helped many to cope with their physical struggles, but her attunement with healing is what directs others to discover a while inner world that transcends the superficial. 

 

Gabrielle is currently deepening her knowledge under world-renowned therapist and trainer, Jillian Pransky. She strongly believes that harnessing the therapeutic impact of Restorative Yoga to create balance, reduce stress, and nurture inner quiet, create conditions for self-awareness, compassion, and healing to pave the way towards having a balanced nervous system. Expect to integrate the physical body, subtle energy body, emotional body, and mental body in her practices to release trauma, promote forgiveness, renew commitments to treating ourselves right, and optimize self-healing in the process.

About Rani Shah

​Rani started her yoga journey to improve her endurance and flexibility while training as a dancer, but the clarity and connection she felt after each class had her coming back for me. A health scare in 202 forced a new approach to her self-practice and teaching - and so she lives, eats and moves with the intention to heal and create more energy. Expect to move from the inside-out and build on your strength and endurance to unearth a playful practice of your own under Rani's guidance as she teaches you to combine functional, primal and somatic-inspired movements with traditional yoga asana to create a conscious movement practice. 

Rani is currently expanding her yoga and embodied movement knowledge into the realms of Zenthai Shiatsu - a body massage practice founded in Sunshine Coast, Australia, that draws on traditional energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and remedial techniques of Osteopathy. This movement-based therapy offers powerful work for issues of the musculoskeletal, digestive and nervous system.
