Shane Moody is a professional Iyengar yoga instructor and holds the Junior Intermediate Certificate. He started his teaching career in 1988 and has gained extensive experience over the past decade.
Shane brings inspiration from his own practice to his students. Detailed instruction ensures the classes are a safe learning environment.
Shane has attended numerous workshops in Australia and Indonesia. To further his education in the art and science of Hatha yoga, Shane has studied in Pune, India with the Iyengar family, attending daily classes.
Ashlea will be assisting and responsible for extra curricula activities. Both Shane and Ashlea have worked together in Bali on retreats since 1994 and come together to share with you their knowledge and love of the Balinese way of life.
To arrive Friday 8 June and depart Saturday 16 June. It is recommended not to arrive on a late evening flight as Munduk is a 3 hour drive from Denpasar. If you choose to arrive a few days earlier and are staying elsewhere, we will arrange for one of our drivers to pick you up on Friday for our drive to Munduk.
The retreat will start each morning at 7am with a 40 minute pranayama class, followed by a short break for tea as we take in the morning stillness and fresh, clean mountain air against a backdrop of spectacular views to the mountains, valley and coastline of the Java sea in the distance. The asana class will start at 8.30 – 10.15am each day to Friday 15 June. In the afternoons the restorative class will be 4.30-6pm except Tuesday afternoon, which will be free. This day is an opportunity if you wish to hire a car and driver and go down to the north coast of Lovina area, or hot springs at Banjar.
Every 2nd day after breakfast we will organise a different outing to trek and explore the local area of rice fields, clove and coffee plantations, waterfalls and local villages.

“I can hardly believe that it’s home time today, the time has flown by in the most wonderful way. I was nervous about coming so far with people I had never met and not having done any/much Yoga for a few months…but I was in good hands. Shane is a fabulous teacher and Ashlea has done a fabulous job ensuring our retreat was smooth and focused on the Balinese way. I am refreshed and ready to face the music of Melbourne”
“I had no real idea about what to expect from this trip but it has been fantastic! I have learnt so much in the Yoga realm, seen beautiful views, had great food and conversations and drawn to my hearts content. What lovely people yoga people are. Many thanks and love”
“Ten days ago I could hardly spell Yoga; let alone Iyengar! Wollongong is a long way from Perth, even further from Bali, but this wonderful group made me feel completely at home! An absolutely amazing first yoga experience”
“Thank you Shane and Ashlea for such a fantastic Yoga and Bali experience. You and Shane are such a harmonious team and the holiday has been effortless. The layers of fun and adventures have been rich and continuous, and I appreciate your years of association with all the Balinese involved. Everyday has been full and fun, and I have received so much during this week than I ever expected.”
“Thankyou so much for organizing such a fantastic yoga retreat. I have had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of it. For me I found the retreat refreshing, inspiring and hugely energizing. It has not so much transformed me as revealed to me where I have moved somewhat from my path, and pointed me the way back to somewhere and something closer to myself”
