Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan Resonates 3 day Retreat

Founder of ila, yoga teacher and yogic healer Denise Leicester teaches guests to reconnect and re-energize over a 3-day program between May 22 and 26, 2014

With an ideal setting amid the lush jungle greenery in the Ayung River valley, The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan will hold a 3 day wellness retreat. Created together with Denise Leicester, a qualified yoga teacher and yogic healer, the program offers Spa treatments and activities to enable guests to experience a journey of self discovery.

Four Seasons invited Denise to create this wellness retreat as a natural continuation to a new spa concept, introduced a year ago, which incorporates authentic spiritual traditions, such as chakra balancing, Balinese Ayurvedic practices, the power of nature, yoga and meditation to maintain wellness and peace of mind.

Denise Leicester, a qualified nurse, aromatherapist, yogi and founder of renowned spa brand ila, has spent a lifetime exploring the dynamics of natural healing through rural communities from India to Dubai, and spans Eastern and South American healing traditions. From extensive studies on the topic, Denise believes in the power of healing energy – a higher vibration capable of facilitating profound inner change.

With this conviction, Denise is internationally well known for conducting such retreats, which focus on specific energy centres in the body, especially on physical, emotional and spiritual reenergizing and reconnecting between oneself and the world.

The extensive progam has a different focus for each day and includes, among other activities, various yoga sessions including yoga Nidra, Jnana, and Nada as well as Spa treatments, meditation, morning walks and a purification and blessing ceremony. The experience of the retreat is enhanced with the setting, which provides a serene, nurturing environment – ideal for treatments that offer a deep inner focus. This 3-day wellness package is perfect for couples looking to reconnect, singles looking to centre and focus for the next exciting life chapter and business executives looking to re-charge from exhaustion.

“We are really excited with this timely program and with a gentle yet intense itinerary we created for the 3 days, we hope to provide guests with an education on lasting wellness, and that they leave the Resort feeling re-energized and inspired, and with a new outlook on life,” says Luisa Anderson, regional spa director, Four Seasons Resorts Bali, Langkawi and Maldives.
