The space

Flowers and Fire Yoga Garden blends traditional Javanese artisanal teak details with local bamboo and ulang ulang style structures. This has created an intimate and magical space which maximizes interaction with the beautiful surrounding environment. Our two yoga studios, cafe and accommodations open out onto our gardens allowing a seamless indoor/outdoor experience. This reflects our site specific design principles. These principles have meant that we preserved existing trees and created our buildings around them. Our magnificent mango tree holds space at the centre of everything.

Our studios

Situated on the second floor of the main building our large L shaped Open Air Yoga Studio provides you with 360 degree village and tree top views.
Our 50 square meter Mango Studio is also open air and situated in our gardens looking onto our majestic mango tree. Curtained by mosquito nets you can enjoy the garden view and fresh air without the mosquitoes enjoying you!

Yoga Classes

At Flowers and Fire we offer a range of class levels and workshops to accommodate all levels of experience. Our beginner classes are designed to set up a strong foundation for your future yoga journey while our advanced classes support the extension of your existing practice through the space of your edge.

With an emphasis on embodied, dymanic yoga embedded in philosophical expositions- we aim to guide your mind and spirit as well as your body through asana, facilitating a sense of expansion, deep connection and relaxation on all levels.

Our Hatha/Vinyasa style yoga combines traditional breath centered approaches, somatic mindfulness and modern creative sequencing. Our classes will give you the space to fall deeply into embodied awareness- transforming contracted physical and mental habits into increasingly fluid, ease filled and blissful experiences.

Shiva & Shakti Retreat with Anneriek

Anneriek

22 - 28 July 2018

Even if learning about folklore and deities doesn’t normally strike your fancy, paying attention to Shiva and Shakti is worth it, since they embody the ideas of psychological change and growth to create BALANCE.

Shiva represents the male energy, and the embodiment of destruction, in a good way breaking down the old to create space for the new. Focusing on Shiva helps us experience our true selves in the present moment.

Shakti represents a feminine form of energy. The energy that fills the universe. Where Shiva represents the void, out of this emptiness comes Shakti, the essence of all life.

In this retreat we’ll explore our balance between ‘Shiva & Shakti’ as we try to 'undo' old patterns of behaviour and lay down new ones. After all there is only the new when we let go of the old.
