Bali, the island of Goddesses, carries a unique vibratory field that amplifies and reveals Shakti - the creative power of life herself.

Your energy level will be restored through deep relaxation, better sleep and time to rest, through spending time in nature and charging up on Vitamin D. Daily dynamic and restorative yoga and healing modalities will revitalize your energetic body.
Your mind will feel calm, clear and refreshed during this retreat of disconnect from the business of life, city noise, social media, and worldly worries. Through the powerful daily practices of breath-work, meditation and free movement in nature you will be able to create different pathways and gain a new outlook on your life. Listening to the sound of the jungle is a therapy on its own.
You will access your core desire and deeper knowingand learn ways to reshape yourself. You will experience a more profound connection with the deeper part of yourself and the means to realign your life the way you desire.

In this intelligent blend of various approaches, you will find guidance on practical and philosophical levels. Ceremonies and one-on-one sessions with local priestesses and healers will clear pathways for direction and purpose.
Mornings will be dedicated to breath work, meditation and more dynamic asana practice and movement to open you up and re-energize you. We will spend time journaling and sharing our insights in a space of acceptance, understanding and respect.
Occasional trips and hikes to nearby temples and mountains will open new perspectives and insight into Bali’s unique tradition.
