Relax with Yogapilates /Yoga and immerse into Javanese art
3 Days/2 Nights
Day 1: Yogapilates/Yoga at the Ratu Boko Palace - Hikes to Hindu temples - Bike Tour
In the early morning hours, Yogapilates exercises are particularly energizing when practiced in the old ruins of Ratu Boko Palace. First drive up a hill with a commanding view to the ancient palace ruins. Afterwards, you’ll explore this impressive place and go to two, rather rarely visited Hindu temples. After lunch, you’ll drive by bike past the rice fields and through villages. The rest of the day is at your disposal for your own activities.
Day 2: Yogapilates/Yoga exercises on the beach - learn a Javanese dance
The surroundings of Jogjakarta are rich in natural beauty. In the early morning hours drive to a wide, black sandy beach and practice Yogapilates on the shore of the roaring Indian Ocean. Afterwards, a young coconut drink on the beach is delicious and refreshing. The infinitely long and wide sand beach with the dunes offers the opportunity for long walks. Lunch is served directly on the beach with freshly caught fish.
On the way back to Jogja you’ll learn simple movements of a Javanese dance in a traditional dance and music center. Return to Jogja.
Optional: The dance moves you learned can be admired at night during the Ramayana Ballet at the Prambanan Temple.
Day 3: God`s seat – Hike to Borobudur - Yogapilates/Yoga exercises
Again your day starts early. You drive up to a god’s seat, where, with a little luck, you can enjoy wonderful views of Central Java’s volcanoes. During an approximately 2.5 hour hike you slowly approach the Borobudur temple. Your expert guide will introduce you to the history and importance of the temple.
On the way back to Jogja, you'll practice Yogapilates /Yoga exercises in an artist's center above the confluence of two big rivers. If you’re interested, you can also see the artist’s work. Return to Jogja.
Optional: In the Sonobudoyo Museum you have the opportunity to watch the Javanese shadow world during a shadow puppet play.
