Bali is an incredible place that captured my heart and so now I’m leading a yoga and coaching group there in October!

$1299 (full bed)
The place we are staying is GORGEOUS. It’s also family owned and run, has an infinity pool, luxurious accommodations, healthy options for breakfast, and is just 15 minutes away from Ubud!
The owners are incredibly kind and helpful so you can relax and know you are taken care of.
All of your excursions are included in this trip. You might find other retreats that are about this cost or slightly lower, but I guarantee they do not include all excursions, breakfast, and not just yoga every day, but also coaching circles, professional photos of the trip, and the itinerary I’ve put together. I ALWAYS over deliver and I’m happy to because it comes from a place of overflow, love and care.
You will feel loved on this trip, taken care of, but also have time for some personal adventure as we have worked in a good amount of time for your own exploration.
So, I hope you’ll join us. Spaces are limited to 12.
FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
Do I need to book my own flight to Bali? What flights do I purchase?
You are responsible for booking your own flight. Here is the important arrival and departure information:
Airport: Ngurah Rai International Airport ( Denpasar – DPS)
Because yoga starts at 5 pm, we request that your flight arrives no later than 3:30pm. If you need to arrive later, just talk to us.

Fly in/out of Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport (DPS). the main airport in Bali located 13 km south of Denpasar.
The retreat begins with yoga at 5:00pm on October 12th and you can arrive at the retreat center as early as 2pm to check in and get settled. We include shared shuttle service if you arrive at the DPS airport between 12pm-3pm on October 12th. We’ll collect your flight details so we can set up shared rides. If you arrive outside of this arrival window or are coming from another place, we can still help you arrange transportation. And you can always arrive in Bali a night or two early!
Finally, check out on the 18th is at 12pm, so we suggest midday or evening flights out.

Should I bring a yoga mat?
Yes please. We will have a few extra floating around, but it’s best to bring your own.
What is the food like?
The food is Bali is so fresh and healthy. Balinese food in particular has sweetness, spice, and might remind you a bit of Thai food with varying flavors.

You only need to put the deposit down to lock in your spot. Remember that this deposit ($500) is non-refundable. The remainder will be due by June 1st 2020.
What if I have to cancel?
We hope you don’t, but if you do you will forfeit your deposit and the remaining balance will be refunded within 30 days if you cancel 60 days before the trip. After 60 days no refunds will be given.
Is there internet access on property?
While we hope you’ll try and unplug… yes, there is wi-fi on property.
What will the weather be like?
Because of it’s equatorial location, Bali tends to have fairly stable weather with the ‘wet’ season occurring between October and April and the ‘dry’ season between May and September. It is generally always hot with temperatures hovering in the mid to high 80s and up.
I’m traveling alone, can I still signed up for the shared room?
What kind of clothes will I need?
Although the Balinese are used to western tourists, they are still a modest culture, so walking down city streets with no shirt on will likely get you a sideways glance or two.
Anytime you go into a temple for a ceremony or tourist attraction you MUST wear a long sleeve shirt, pants or preferably sarong that cover your knees. Women and men have separate requirements, and the Balinese are only to happy to explain the rules and outfit you accordingly if you’re minus an appropriate item or two.
How do I exchange money?
Is Bali safe?
The Balinese people are among the most friendly in the world. As for safety in the streets, there is little violent crime, especially in Ubud. In beach areas one has to take precautions against pickpockets, just as most beach tourist spots in the world.
Are there any health concerns I need to be aware of?
It is recommended that you visit your GP, personal physician or a travel health clinic 4 to 8 weeks before your departure to Indonesia. Recommended vaccinations often include hepatitis A, typhoid, tetanus and polio. Bali is not a high-risk area for malaria and the tablets can be considered controversial, we recommend that you do some research and make your own decision on this. Dengue fever is another mosquito borne illness to be made aware of.
You might want to bring something that can help with stomach ailments. Even though you will be eating in good restaurants, there is always a chance that you can get Bali Belly – a mild dysentery that passes in a few days. Bring good mozzie repellant.
What if I need to see a doctor?
There are plenty of international medical clinics in Bali – especially in Ubud and Kuta. If you have a minor illness or ailment, you will be just fine. These clinics usually do not accept health insurance, but they do not cost much. Should you need specialized care in a dire emergency, you would need to be evacuated to Singapore. It is always wise to purchase travelers health insurance with evacuation coverage. While in Ubud, for minor issues, see TOYO clinic, for more serious issues, check out the SOS International medical or SILOAM clinics.
What about sanitation?
What is the electrical currency/outlet in Bali?
Bali utilizes the standard British plug (two flat blades and one flat grounding blade) and the European plug (two round pins) and is at 230V. Adapters will be necessary if you are taking any electrical items.
If international: Yes, we recommend you purchase individual travel insurance for your trip. We suggest that you include “cancel for any reason” with your policy. Be sure to purchase travel insurance that includes medical coverage.
Final balances are due June 1st 2020.
