Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Philippines.
This program shifts the focus from the intentional detox of our Signature Deep Nature Cleanse (DNC) to an overall Wellness Yoga Program (WYP) with yoga/breathwork as the key foundation. In this retreat, you will have the time and space to slow down and flow with the rhythm of our everyday routine here at Bahay Kalipay Retreat Centre - leaving you plenty of room for introspection and inner work with as-needed support for your personal process and healing. Our space offers the perfect abode to heal your mind, body and soul. This is a less regimented program as compared to our DNC detox program.
The WYP is held all year round but we suggest however for you not to arrive during Total Silence/Non-Doing day and the nature trip day, both of which usually fall on Tuesdays and Thursdays respectively.
Bahay Kalipay is an intimate ashram style space where guests, teachers and facilitators make themselves at home. Some of our independent structures include Issa hut with double bedrooms and the Ma-I common space, our personal Dap-ay beach, the healing arts hut we call, Pugad ng Diwata, and Kalipay Kaf, which is also open to the general public for breakfast, lunch and dinner by reservation.
Accommodations include private couples cabin, family rooms, and individual rooms for our guests, which are almost always retreatants. We have a daily onsite staff of kitchen personnel, guest relations and retreat facilitators, and offer daily housekeeping as requested, and as-needed laundry services. Guests of Bahay Kalipay can take advantage of our gentle detox, deep cleanse program of raw food, yoga classes, workshops, spa services and more.
All five rooms in the Main House are on the third floor with views of the evergreen Palawan horizon. We have 2 single rooms, 2 double rooms with a balcony, and a triple ideal for families. All rooms are open-air, equipped with an electric fan and mosquito netting to keep the bugs at bay while sleeping. Some rooms have a balcony and/or split level lofts for meditation or additional storage. Alternatively, guests can choose to sleep in the open air on the the landing area of Ma-I space, with simple beddings and mosquito nets.
The second floor split-level room is a large inner dance space designed to provide conditions for healing, silent and insightful spiritual practice. This is where personal early morning meditations are held, as well as yoga classes, and in the afternoons and evenings, inner dance sessions, workshops and other gatherings. Ma-I and the accommodations area are closed to the public during retreat days and healing workshops and sessions.
Referred to the nest in english, the space is for massage and one-on-one healing sessions. The second story landing is set up with an altar and a collection of books, ideal for contemplation, prayer or a well-deserved siesta.
In the mornings, the functional sandy zen garden is a venue for tea and yoga. In the afternoons, the garden is used for soulwork workshops and earth healing. And in the evening, it has hosted bonfires, star and moon gazing, drum circles, tribal ceremonies, singing, fire dancing, and cozy conversation.
Our dining room can seat 24 comfortably, and has squeezed up to 35 guests, as diners enjoy our creatively-prepared raw, organic, mostly vegan cuisine using quality ingredients sourced from certified local producers. It is adorned with a collection of spiritual art by artists who have visited Bahay Kalipay and have left some of their work to share. The Kaf is also open to guests who are keen to experience Bahay Kalipay and meet some of the residents. However, advanced reservation required.
More and more now, we hear about the impact to our planet caused by human pollution. As if on a perpendicular track to this global pollution, we hear more and more about the pollution that occurs within the human body. Without a doubt, the health of the planet determines the health of our bodies, and you can say that the health of our bodies, in some ways, will determine the health of the planet.
Your personal transformation process will be supported by workshops and rituals led by both resident and visiting facilitators. You will also experience the deep meditative quality of a one-day coconut fast as we hold space for total silence.
A healthy mind, body and spirit, will naturally lean toward a healthier and cleaner environment. The state of our environment and our body, in other words, go hand in hand. We believe that a holistic approach to environmentalism, as well as body/mind/spirit detoxification is necessary for all human beings to experience.
Apart from yoga oriented sessions, during this course we will cover several aspects such as:
Raw food discussion and demonstration and raw food documentaries
Energy work / breathwork / meditation
Inner dance sessions
Rites and rituals
Workshops and other healing art offerings by visiting BK teacher
Private hut is available at 450 PHP per night additional and family hut at 600 PHP per night additional.
