Slow Retreats with Sharni Quinn

Wondering which yoga reatreat to join? In Bali? In Gili? Which yoga instructor? Easy! Ask Julie! Sharni offers several lovely yoga retreats in different parts of the world. Follow the Sun with sharni and find your inner light.  Sharni realized she had hit rock bottom. Her husband's Bipolar disorder disease had taken control of both of their lives and her body began to shut down in response to the havac it was inflicting on her soul.  Follow the Sun is Sharni's personal memoir of descending into darkness, facing her fears, and then mustering up the courage to heal and findher inner light again through yoga travel, and gratitude. In 2010 Sharni decided to travel and dedicated nine months to the porcuit of rediscovering her inner light. Chasing the sunshine and teaching yoga for charity along the way, Sharni soaked up knowledge from Indian yoga teachers during sunrise on the beaches of Goa and experienced Mumbai – Bollywood style – while living with an Indian family. She enjoyed eco- cycle tours through rice paddies with singing yogic mantras in Bali, and finally, learned how to dive on the Great Barrier Reef and taught yoga and 'Follow the Sun' Workshops in Australia.  […]

24 Hours in Gili for New Years

What happens in Gili for New Year's?  The people of Gili are naturally party people. The Gili islands are known to be THE party destination of Indonesia.  Are you spending your holidays in Gili? Are you still wondering where to spend your holidays?  Search no more, the answer is Gili! To start New Years Eve celebrations, for sunset, at Lucky's Bar. Its one of the best places, this time of the year, to watch the sunset in Gili Air. Every year the beach is packed with party people, families, local people, all gather together on the beach to watch the last sunset of the year. It has a bit the same vibe as Ibiza, a few years ago.  We are all smiling, looking in eachothers eyes and watching the sun set, in the ocean, for the last time in 2017. Puts a smile on my face, just thinking about it, doesn't it? Once the sun sets, after the colours have gone from red, to orang, purple, blue, to announce the arrival of the night. I'd hop on a bycicle and cycle to Camila Beach Club. They have prepared an exquisite menu for the New Year.  They make their own home-made limoncello! […]

Why NOT to visit the Gili islands, especially now?!

I understand the fear the media can awaken in you. Personally, since the beginning of Mt Agung's eruption, I flew in and out 3 times. The first time, I think I stopped breathing during the entire flight. I'm more the adventurous type. I really felt like I was crazy to have boarded that flight. The last flight I boarded, was actually the same day as the eruption. I had planned a cruise to Raja Ampat, on a new liveaboard. My flight with Garuda Indonesia was cancelled, for cause of vulcano eruption, fair enough. Yes, they are safe and prepared for vulcano eruptions. As Indonesia counts 76 vulcanoes. Yes the vulcano might erupt. Yes the airport might be closed. Yes there might be ashes. I'm in Bali now. I'll communicate on what is happening at this very moment. BUT I can assure you, we know exactly what to do and we've got you.  What happened to me when the vulcano erupted and my flight was cancelled? I checked into South-Lombok's Novotel for a night, fabulous place by the way. Garuda refunded my ticket, and I flew out the next day with Lion Air. I hopped on the liveaboard and had thje best holidays […]
