I will be on the beautiful Indonesian island of Sumba where this photo was taken last year during some spontaneous beach yoga with a gorgeous group of school girls on their way home from school.

One of the attractions of this place is a complete break from the computer/social media and mobile phone reception……bliss!  So please be patient if you are waiting to hear from me 🙂

If you have any enquiries please email me nurtureworks@netspace.net.au

and I will reply when I get back to Bali after 21st August.

Namaste Bali 2018 appears to be FULLY BOOKED. I am establishing a wait list so  if any of the 13 women who have said YES have a change of mind then I can offer a place.

I will be checking in with the current group of women on my return from Sumba but if they all remain a YES then Namaste Bali 2018 is FULL.

If I have enough new enquiries or you would like a private Namaste Bali experience (minimum number required is 10 to proceed with a second group) I will look to organising another group.

I am already taking bookings for 2019, dates will be Sunday 23rd June-Saturday 30th June 2019, if this interests you.

Just a reminder to all my students or students to be that I am still in Indonesia after just finishing running Namaste Bali, A Yoga Holiday.

I am immersing myself in all things yoga while in Ubud and then off to adventure around Sulawesi, Flores, Sumba then back to Bali.

Yoga Circle classes will resume week commencing Monday 25th September. I will provide an update as the time gets closer.

Namaste, Yoga Love and keep smiling in your heart 💜💚❤💛💙

Announcing Namaste Bali 2018

By · Comments (0)

‘NAMASTE BALI 2018’ MARKS THE 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF NICOLE OFFERING YOGA HOLIDAYS IN BALI.

DATES: SUNDAY 24TH JUNE- SATURDAY 30TH JUNE 2018.

This immersion is so loved that previous participants have already asked that a spot be saved for them in 2018!
For some it will be their third time!!

That says it all. ………….WHY DO WOMEN KEEP RETURNING FOR MORE!???

WELL………………….………………


– It is a unique experience each year. Nicole continues to include her cornerstone ‘Namaste Bali’ features interspersed with special new experiences, staying true to her intention that YOU are nurtured and immersed in a true Balinese experience……and it’s FUN!

– ‘Namaste Bali’ is a reflection of Nicole’s special relationship with her teacher Guru Made Sumantra, her Balinese family headed by Wayan Suparta who wit an open heart proudly shares his Bali.

– Nicole happily acknowledges that ‘ Wayan makes me look good!’ and is very grateful that Wayan takes time each year to ensure that her group is so warmly welcomed.

– Nicole continues to be feel honoured and blessed that Guru Made Sumantra shares his blessings, healing and yoga with her groups.

– The loving, fun and safe space created at the Ubud Art Villa flows to and from the welcome circle, yoga sessions, eating experiences, ceremony and temples, the car (prepare to sing!),the pool, the entertainment (prepare to dance!), the conversations and deepened connections with self, others and Bali herself.

– Namaste Bali delivers way beyond what can be described in the program. For many it has been and continues to be a communion of heart,mind,body,soul and as GMS explains a connection with ‘the cosmos’. In other words we smile in our hearts and feel the love and light fill up our bodies.

– To be in Bali, is to enter a place of beauty which is honoured and blessed in sacred traditions of that culture.

SO …….IT IS A YOGA HOLIDAY……. an authentic Balinese experience while enjoying some Yoga, great food and lots of love and fun and it differs significantly to the many yoga retreats offered in Ubud.

Namaste Bali is suitable for beginners through to experienced students.

The accommodation is a unique villa created by an artist and his Balinese family with love. Each day this special Balinese family looks after you.

You are taught Balinese Yoga by teacher/guru Guru Made Sumantra, a 5th generation Balinese Healer.

Each session is an opportunity for gentle healing and harmonisation.

Nicole has trained with Guru Made Sumantra (GMS) and it is an honour he offers his teachings each year.

Nicole was nominated by GMS and accepted into the Indonesian Yoga Teachers Association.

Wayan Suparta completes the Namaste Bali team which provides successful, spiritual, unique, nurturing, cultural Yoga Holidays filled with fun and smiles 🙂

Wayan is an experienced guide and manages the Ubud Artvilla where Namaste Bali is hosted.

This workshop will teach or deepen your understanding of Warrior 1 and 2. The intention is to share a beautiful and nurturing Warrior Meditation Sequence complete with powerful affirmations. The sequence allows you to go within and connect with your inner warrior.
It is a simple and effective practice that integrates body, mind and breath. We will play with this sequence focusing on breath, pace and flowing it with music.
Physically you will be practicing powerful standing postures that work the legs and lower body and expands into the chest area opening the Heart Chakra (Anahata). The poses increase life force (prana/energy) creating vitality and strength.
A vital and strong mind and body is more able to face daily challenges.
The sequence can assist you to acknowledge your fear/s and work with your own abilities and strengths to create inner peace.
There is great power in the spoken word and the affirmations throughout this practice, combined with the postures and the breath creates great energy and strength.
Cost is $20 for the 2 hour workshop
Places are limited and booking and prepayment required.

I am honoured that my Guru Made Sumantra (GMS),who has been instrumental in establishing PIYI (the Association Of Indonesian Yoga Instructors) presents a range of workshops at Namaste Bali in June 2017.
GMS is dedicated to ensuring that all PIYI teachers are quality teachers with a high standard of training.
I continue to receive training with GMS to ensure my teaching adheres to his tradition and standards.
An opportunity exists for two more women to join in this authentic and spiritual Balinese Yoga experience. This is the ONLY Australian Yoga Retreat that Guru Made Sumantra teaches at.

Namaste Bali is unique, nurturing and fun. Last year it was described by a participant as:

‘a total immersion into a truly authentic experience. A week full of love, laughter and immense joy’

If this resonates with you contact Nicole as there is now an opening for two more participants on this intimate and culturally rich yoga immersion in Bali.
