Bali, Indonesia Yoga Retreat — SOLD OUT!

7 nights of Yoga, Meditation, Relaxation, with a healthy dose of Adventure

 June15th — 22nd, 2019

 

The magic of Bali awaits you...

This seven day yoga retreat in Bali will be nothing short of amazing! I realize that getting to Bali is not the easiest... it is a long and more pricey flight, however I really truly believe it will be worth it! Bali, known as the Heart Chakra of the world, is a magical place that everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime. It’s the combination of spirituality, as much as the physical beauty of the island, that makes Bali an ideal sanctuary for learning and practicing yoga.

I personally have been dreaming of visiting Bali for quite a while now... so I thought "what better way to do it than with a group of amazing people that share my love for travel, adventure, and YOGA?"! I have researched, read, emailed, called, and spent countless hours planning this retreat and I really feel that it will be magical. If you have more time to spend, I highly encourage taking advantage of being on the other side of the world and staying a few extra days to explore other areas of Bali or perhaps even taking a relatively inexpensive flight to Thailand, Malaysia, or Singapore... the world is your oyster!

 

The Venue: KURA Kura retreat center

The spot I have decided to hold my retreat is a beautiful and intimate little retreat center on the shore of the Indian Ocean called Kura Kura.

Kura Kura offers you an oasis of serenity; a sanctuary for the body, mind, and heart. It is a perfect ground to rejuvenate and immerge into the magic of Bali. The surroundings invite you to rise with the song of the birds, take walks along the black sand beach, visit the many local temples, watch the waves moving in, and experience amazing sunsets.

Kura Kura is settled just 50 steps from the beach of Seseh. Seseh is a traditional fishing village, untouched by major tourism but close enough to the shops and buzz of Seminyak and walking distance from Echo Beach, a famous Bali surfspot.

Come play, relax, learn and be nurtured. Enjoy the absence of TV-sets and computers. The elegant simplicity of Kura Kura's six cottages and their lovely staff will give you a feeling of being away and coming home. Kura Kura is a place to feel safe & supported.

Accommodation details

Only 14 total spots available. All rooms can have either 2 single beds or 1 king bed. 7 rooms have air conditioning. 1 room is without AC but this room has a fan and is upper floor with a nice breeze. If you book with a partner or friend, you will share the same room. If you are traveling alone but do not wish to pay the added cost for Single Occupancy, I will work to find you a roommate.

Kura Kura was originally built as a family house and in a way it still is. Many of the eight rooms are old Java style houses situated around the Yoga Shala (central building) and pool. The rooms are rustic, clean and fresh as the breeze you can feel from the sea, but also protected and safe as the shield of a Kura Kura (Turtle).
The rooms are based on an elegant simplicity and live up to western standards having their own bathroom, rain- and hand shower (warm/cold water), a western toilet, comfortable beds with soft linen and mosquito nets, a veranda, fans and air-conditioning to keep you cool. They are unpretentiously decorated with care and love. Enjoy the absence of television and nurture yourself in this elegant simplicity. If you need to communicate with the outside world, free Wi-Fi is available.

Yoga

With a couple exceptions due to excursions or other activities, you can expect at least two 75-90 minute yoga classes per day. One will be a Power Yoga class. This will be a dynamic and energetic class and will require a basic knowledge of the physical postures... however, plenty of modifications will be given and there is ALWAYS room to listen to your own body and take it at your own pace. The other practice will be gentle and more restorative -- ranging from Yin to Restore to Soft Flow. Meditation will be held each morning for about 30 minutes.

 

Arrival and Departure

Plan to arrive anytime on Saturday June 15th and depart anytime on Saturday June 22nd. The closest airport is Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) airport and is about 1 hour away from Kura Kura Retreat Center. Remember that you will lose one day arriving in Bali, and gain one day coming home... as I'm sure you will figure out when booking your flight :)

If you would like to arrive early or stay longer at the retreat center, that can be arranged as long as there is availability. Please contact me for inquiry and I will either arrange with the resort for you or give you the information to do so. You will be responsible for the cost of additional days but will be given a discount as a "retreat participant".

All participants must have a valid passport. Your passport must have at least 2 blank pages and be valid for at least 6 months after your departure date. No Visa is required for Americans coming for tourism and staying less than 30 days.
