With no exaggeration, it is, and will continue to be, one of the best things I could have done for myself and everyone else in my life...
Even now that the retreat is over, I can feel the permanent shift and changes that it has prompted in me.
It was one of the most beautiful, heart-opening and soul-expanding weeks of my life!
The daily yoga (and consequential strength development) was only a small part of what made this week so special. I made some amazing friends, and I also gained an incredible insight into who I really am, one which helped me to overcome a chronic physical injury.
[The food] was absolutely delicious, and the accommodation exceeded my expectations and was very luxurious!
The resort itself is just so beautiful, it never got boring to look around... and the empowerment sessions really connected for me.
This retreat helped me grow and develop more than I could have ever expected or hoped for. I reconnected to my self and things in my life became clearer; I was able to reflect, challenge and, more importantly, grow.
The Space and Possibility retreat was the best thing I have ever done in my life. I write this with sincerity and earnest. I signed up initially for yoga but when the retreat started I realised that I would walk away with something so much greater than a stronger headstand practice. S&P was the most eye opening, empowering experience I have ever had. Even now that the retreat is over, I can feel the permanent shifts and changes that it has made and prompted in me.I can’t describe how empowering and inspiring it is to be lead by people who truly believe in what they are doing and what they are teaching, and who I can see practice what they preach every day of their lives. Also being surrounded by like-minded people, eager to learn more about themselves was incredibly liberating, and so humbling. I am overwhelmed and so incredibly grateful that at 24, before I have made any major steps in the “real world”, I am able to look at the trajectory of my life and consider whether it is heading in the direction I want to go. Lucy and Renee uncovered something within me that I was not even aware existed. I am now filled with an excitement and enthusiasm for my life and my future path that I have consciously and mindfully chosen.I am forever grateful to Lucy and Renee for setting me upon this path of enquiry, and for showing me the space and possibility I have, and can have in my own life.
One of the most beautiful, heart-opening and soul expanding weeks of my life! Lucy and Renee were the most amazing facilitators and leaders of this retreat who provided a very loving, safe and compassionate environment for each and everyone of us to express ourselves, be vulnerable and to grow within this sacred space. Throughout the balance of yoga classes and empowerment workshops, they challenged us when we needed it and also listened with full compassion when it was required, ensuring that our self-growth and connections within ourselves, and also within the group, were a priority. I left the retreat with a whole new level of love and compassion and will forever be grateful for the amazing experience from Lucy and Renee, and the whole Space and Possibility 2016 group! A week I will truly never forget as I have expanded way beyond what I could have ever imagined.
Space and Possibility was one of the most surprisingly amazing weeks that I have experienced. Despite expecting to have a great time, and to feel nice and relaxed, I was genuinely surprised with the benefits that came from this week. The daily yoga (and consequential strength developments) was only a small part of what made this week so special. I made some amazing friends, and I also gained an incredible insight into who I really am, one which helped me to overcome a chronic physical injury. It was so clear how much love and preparation was put into this week. I cannot reccomend this retreat enough, it was worth every cent - I am already looking forward to next year!
When I think of my experience of Space and Possibility 2016, my heart becomes full of love and gratitude for all that Renee and Lucy offered. While I didn’t know exactly what I needed, I knew I needed to be challenged personally and physically and this is where Space and Possibility 2016 excelled. The empowerment sessions helped me grow and develop more than I could have ever expected or hoped for. I reconnected to my self and things in my life became clearer; I was able to reflect, challenge and, more importantly, grow. This was true both on and off the mat. The daily yoga practice was beautiful, purposeful, and uplifting, and I noticed how much stronger my practice became too. Renee and Lucy did not miss a beat, from the content to the location (which was unbelievable and forces you to relax), they gave themselves fully and provided a truly wonderful space for... possibility! This is an experience I am so grateful for and one I will treasure for a long time yet.
Space and Possibility provided an opportunity for me to pause and breathe, challenge my thinking and consider my life journey with renewed purpose and passion. Lucy and Renee quickly established an open, safe and inclusive environment for beautiful, like-minded people to share in the joys of advancing alignment, core strength, self-compassion and connection through varied Yoga Workshops, Vinyasa and Yin practices. Combined with daily guided meditation, as well as focused and well-sequenced Empowerment Workshops, I truly felt inspired and that my body, mind and soul were nourished.
Space and possibility was even more than I had hoped. With no exageration, it is, and will continue to be, one of the best things I could have done for myself and everyone else in my life. It reconnected me to my true self and I am so very grateful. Renee and Lucy are truly extraordinary teachers, healers and peacemakers. I can think of no two people better suited, and better paired, to guide such a life changing retreat.The asana itself was magnificent, and juicy, as always from these two. A perfect balance of yin and yang. I think all of us, either new or old to yoga, developed in our practice. It was such a treat to further refine our practice through all the additional asana workshops focused on evidence-based anatomy and correct alignment.Equal focus was given to the other aspects of the yoga practice, such as mediation and svadhyaya (self study). It was truly a yoga retreat in every sense. Union. Lucy and Renee created a loving and supportive environment and invited us to connect with and develop our core values, our mission, and recognise and dig into our beliefs about ourselves which hold us back from fillfilling our potential and true purpose. They gave us the tools to be begin to live open-hearted lives. Because of these tools, unlike so many other retreats I have been to, the work, growth and connection to self has continued since returning home. Weeks later I still feel like I’m on retreat.The community which developed over such a short period of time, with people who either had just met, or didn’t know each other well, was phenomenal. I have made friends for life and connected with them on a deeper level than many of my closest friends at home.On top of all this Bagus Jati, the view, the forest, the service, the staff, the food!!!!.. extraordinary. I can’t begin to explain... and photos don’t do it justice. It felt like home. And the staff bent over backwards to make sure my dietary requirements were not just met but that I left even healthier than when I arrived.From the bottom of my energised soul I am so endlessly grateful for the unconditional love, support, knowledge and seemingly endless energy Renee and Lucy possess. Can’t wait for the next retreat!!!
