Dragonfly Village, Ubud BaliRaw Food and Yoga retreat is set in a charming Dragonfly Village, an organic paradise resort amidst the rice fields just a few steps from the cultural town of Ubud.
The venue is made of nine century-old antique bungalows, original wooden houses brought over from remote villages in Java, decorated with beautiful carvings, 100% recycled teak full wood.
Each bungalow has an attached mud-wall bathroom, passion fruits & vines climbing over the natural roof, semi-open to the nature. Clean finishing. All balconies are facing the rice fields, with its own private outdoor garden. Six single bungalows are available for those that require time for themselves. There are two group bungalows for 4 or 8 people available for groups.

Cat Kabira Biodynamic Yin
Biodynamic Yin is the practice of Yin (longer-held passive poses that influence the fascia and energy lines of the body) interwoven with the awareness and wisdom of biodynamic craniosacral therapy, working with the chakras and auric field. You will learn how to trust your sensitivity and sense your own unique energetic field (as no one’s energetic bodies are exactly the same.) You will also sense the blockages in your body on emotional, karmic, ancestral, and other levels and how to dissolve them through using breath, focus, connecting to the witness and using intention. We will be practicing in a space in which the “Field” is held – the potent life force that exists within all of us…and it’s through the settling down of ourselves and remembering that we can bring our awareness back to this. No one else teaches Yin in this format.
What is biodynamic craniosacral therapy?
In this context, we learn how to feel the energetic tides in the body and develop awareness of our own fluid nature. We will also sense what it means and feels to sense our own energetic fields, the fields of others, as well as “The Field” or entire healing space of the room. We see the power that occurs in “doing nothing” and deeply relaxing, on being the witness and seeing how the body has its own potential to heal itself once its inherent wholeness is recognized. We understand the power of our own personal presence, how the consciousness and integration in our own field influences others, and recognize the transformation that occurs for everyone when we ourselves remember who we truly are.
You will already be building upon the tools that you learned in Energy 101, The Initiation and/or Yoga Energetics Foundation Training, and Cat Kabira’s Hands-On “Connection” course.
