Yoga and meditation instructors:
Caterina is an international Yoga Teacher, Movement Specialist & Dance Movement Psychotherapist.
Caterina’s classes are uniquely shaped by her wealth of experiences from her different movement backgrounds as a dancer, fitness trainer, yoga practitioner and her training as a dance movement psychotherapist. As well as the teachings from her studies in India and in the West. Her aim in her class is to facilitate a safely held space where people feel comfortable to explore their body, mind and soul. Yoga is not about the perfect pose but about the individuals journey and exploration to the asana (pose). It is Caterina’s passion to invite people back into their bodies, into the connection of their primal medium of expression that withholds such depth of knowledge and who we truly are.
What I can offer as a facilitator in my capacity as a yoga teacher, movement specialist and dance movement psychotherapist is:
• hatha yoga
• yoga alignment
• conditioning class
• vinyasa Flow
• yin yoga
• restorative yoga
• yoga Nidra
• meditation and Pranayma
• expressive dance
• ecstatic dance
• Sharing circles
• moon ceremonies
• personal development

Julie traveled the world for over 7 years as a scuba instructor to stop in the island of Gili Air, where she co-founded Slow private pool villas and spa, as well as Gili Travel Agency. If you want to travel to Indonesia, Ask Julie! She designs tailor-made holidays in Indonesia with Love and Passion.
The Slow Retreats are her design. Julie is convinced that Gili Air is a place where you can recharge and slow down; she would like to share this feeling with you.
Lodging: Slow Villas and Spa in Gili Air.
Yoga Shala: Slow Spa
Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation, and a pilates/yoga studio. SlowSpa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves. The peaceful feeling and the silence support the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. The treatments: massages, facials, treatments for hands and feet, and therapy through movements, respond to our belief at Slow in relation to wellness. For SlowSpa’s signature treatments, we use natural and alive products, especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.

Healthy Menu: Julie's favorite restaurants and Slow Villas home cook
We are what we eat. Today a healthy diet is all too often forgotten. Our partners, several organic cafés around the island, will prepare for you a
healthy menu combination of fresh ingredients, organic, raw foods, and juices. Combined with a fusion of Indonesian cuisine to make you discover the flavors of Indonesia. Delicious and healthy! Plus, they will also prepare recipe menu cards so that you can bring the magic of their dishes home.
