Program

This retreat is run only by local people in a traditional Balinese village away from other tourism. It is the perfect place for you to get away from busy tourist parts of Bali to unwind, recharge, and rejuvenate your body, mind, and soul.

Most importantly, this retreat is about you. It’s about taking time for yourself to observe yourself, to understand yourself, to reconnect with yourself, and to love yourself in a kinder way.

Take this incredible journey for yourself, and come to help us spread the love for Traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga, share ancient Balinese wisdom, and support the local community!

Traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga is one of the oldest yoga practices in the world. It is said that thousands of years ago, 13 yogis from India (each practice their own style of yoga) came to Bali to practice on the top of Mount Watukaru, also known as Batukaru Mountain.

The spiritual energy of Bali (the Island of the Gods) inspired the 13 yogis, who took the best of their own yoga practices and created Balinese Yoga. They gave it the name Balinese Watukaru Yoga to pay tribute to the beautiful mountain on which they practiced together.

Beauty, grace, spirituality, and strength are some of the stunning features of traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga. It focuses on the mind and one's spiritual awakening, hence the emphasis on meditation and the inner flow of energy in its practice.

Held by traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga practitioners that believe without meditation and chanting, yoga is just an exercise/sport and the physical practice of yoga is the preparation for meditation, which helps you to silence your mind and heal your body.

During this retreat, you will have access to one of the oldest spiritual ashrams in the world, Pasraman Seruling Dewata, which still conserves all of the original 13 styles of Yoga exactly how they have created thousands of years ago in the Himalayas.

Apart from your two daily yoga classes, you can take part in two village or cultural activities every day, such as rice farming, waterfall purification, coconut oil making, Balinese cooking class, Balinese language workshop, traditional Balinese dance performances, and so many more!

You will share these beautiful four days with likeminded people from around the globe, open your mind to the diversity and beauty of cultures, philosophies, practices, and beliefs.

The spiritual energy of this peaceful village of Sesandan will elevate your spirit and renew your body, mind, and soul. A beautiful opportunity to experience authentic Balinese Hindu culture while practicing yoga and self-love! Balitrees Retreats can't wait to welcome and grow with you!
