"A life-changing retreat not to be missed!"
I found myself unexpectedly at a loose end in Bali and Oksana was kind enough to let me join halfway through one of her amazing retreats at just a day's notice! From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed and relaxed instantly in Oksana's presence. She has such a uniquely beautiful energy and so much wisdom to share! I can't quite believe how much I learned in just a short few days. Honestly I know nothing I write will do justice to what a life-changing experience this has been. I've come away feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and with a wealth of ideas to implement into my busy life back in London.

"A quite good retreat over all"
I book a yoga retreat for 7 full days with Oksana.
Both Oksana and her friend Lesya helped me during this seven days ( Oksana had to travel so I started the experience with her friend Lesya).
Oksana is a member of Yoga barn and she also offers workshops and classes there.
They were both flexible with the schedule as I was jet-lagged the first few days so I missed some of the yoga/ meditation classes in the morning.
I liked also that I could add some more acupuncture sessions and Cranio-sacral therapy sessions - on my own expense; they are not part of the yoga program; it was just something I wanted to try once in Ubud.
I received a nice gift from Oksana - a journal and a sarong for the purification ceremony - asa a welcome gift.
I went to a nice sauna close to Ubud together with Oksana and had there the chance to meet her friend Sonja; they had a bit of time to debrief.
I took part also in a chocolate workshop together with Lesya; very interactive and nice.
Overall a nice experience.

I had a great time in Ubud. Oksana och hennes man är fantastiska. Passionerade, jordnära personer som brinner för människors kemi och välmående. Oksana skräddarsyr ditt schema utifrån dina önskemål och hon är öppen för allt.
Man blir varmt välkommen och man känner sig trygg.

"A Magical Adventure in the Vortex of Mama Bali"
Oksana, Leseya and Michael became my family and tribe for 18 days. The accommodation at Adiwana resort was absolutely stunning. A magnificent room in the heart of the Jungle with easy accessibility to explore Ubud's dynamic streets. I was able to customise my retreat by doing daily yoga sessions, ecstatic dance, drumming, acupuncture, massage, steam, natural perfume making, exploring the culinary accept of Indonesian food and many more healing modalities, which was organised by Oksana and Leseya. Michael taught me how to ride a motor bike which was exhilarating. The amazing food that I ate was fundamental to my healing. Bali is lush with some of the best Vegan restaurants in the world !
For me the absolute highlight was getting to know Oksana, Leseya and Michael. They are the most caring, intuitive, conscious, funny, fun, knowledgable trio. The bond that I developed with them has sealed in a life-long friendship bond. I am eternally grateful for all their time ,effort and absolute precision care about every detail.
I cannot recommend Arts of life retreat enough !! Please treat yourself to an immersion of this magical retreat. It was truly life changing for me.

"A blessing for a solo trip and beyond"
I did this yoga retreat as part of a 3 week solo trip. It was one of my favorite parts! I'd even venture to say this was one of my favorite vacations ever! I felt like I made a family in Michael, Oksana, and the other guests. They were so full of warmth and love. Michael was an amazing guide and friend, doing everything he could to make my stay as happy as possible. The itinerary was amazing, everyday enjoyable with the right mix of yoga spread throughout. And I could feel the positive effects of this experience even after I left. This experience really lifted my spirits.

The personalised attention and kindness given to us by Oksana and her team during the retreat made us feel comfortable, relaxed and valued right from the beginning. The restaurants we were taken to were all amazing and completely opened our eyes to how yummy raw food can be. I loved hearing about the history of Ubud and its people, but especially loved Oksana's versions!
I felt that we were able to learn and grow from the whole experience and am definitely inspired to live a healthier lifestyle!

"A fantastic retreat experience!!!!!"
I am honored to be the first to be hosted by Michael. It was a pleasant experience all round, itinerary was well paced, and Mike was very accommodating towards my preference for the schedule. I never have to worry about food, as I am always brought to amazing eat locations after our yoga sessions. He always picks me up at hotel to get me to our destination on time, and was very thoughtful to pass me a care pack for the trip! I am truly grateful and happy for this entire experience. Thank you Mike for taking good care of me past couple of days!

"A wonderful week"
A magical week experiencing Ubud from an insider's perspective, the week was well thought out and I enjoyed not having to think or plan my stay but still had flexibility and freedom. Oksana was an amazingly generous, kind, reliable, thoughtful and personable host, who goes above and beyond. Incredible food, accommodation, weather, yoga and new friends, can't recommend it highly enough! - Thanks Celia

"Relaxing paradise incorporated"
Oksana created for me the perfect escape holiday. Matching my yoga experience with my love of cooking , massages , restaurants & exploring nature. Her knowledge is extensive in not only yogic teachers but Ubud & its surroundings from meeting the locals to dining in quality establishments. Her passion for a healthy life is only surpassed by her beauty and her humour. I feel ive made a valuable friend for life. Anyone who doesnt enjoy their special week here with Oksana after all the attention she gives, well they must be mentally incompetant or a con man.

"Feels like fraud. Definitely no recommendation for Oksana"
Difficult to say something positive about her, because she is not caring about the needs and expectations of her clients at all.
