Balitrees Retreats is a joint effort of the local ashram, Perguruan Seruling Dewata, and the villagers of Sesandan. During your retreat, you can choose to stay in a shared or private guesthouse room or homestay room. Guesthouse rooms are located within the retreat centre, surrounded by stunning rice paddies and coconut trees that will take your breath away. There is also a newly built pool, spa centre, meditation garden, reception, lounge, and yoga shala at the retreat site.

The guesthouse rooms are traditional Balinese style bungalows decorated with a unique bohemian touch. Each ensuite room has a flat-screen TV, air-conditioner, bathtub, shower, toilet, wardrobe, desk, and beautiful beds fitted with soft Egyptian cotton beddings. All the artworks in the rooms are beautifully done by artists from the own village, of whom we are very proud.

Homestay rooms are located only a short walk away from our retreat centre (5-8 minutes). They are part of local Balinese people’s homes. Staying in these super comfy homestay rooms offers the guests a great chance to be part of the village life and connect deeper with Hindu culture and people. Each room has a garden-facing terrace, a lounge area, a flat-screen TV, air-conditioner, shower, wardrobe, desk, and cozy beds with Balinese style beddings.

Program

You will share these beautiful 8 days with like-minded 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 spirit.

As a joint effort of the local Ashram, Perguruan Seruling Dewata, and the villagers of Sesandan, Balitrees Retreats strives to offer you a truly memorable experience, support the local community, contribute to sustainable eco-tourism in Bali, and spread their love for traditional Balinese Watukaru yoga.

Traditional Balinese Watukaru yoga is one of the oldest yoga practices in the world, originating from Indian yoga. It is said that thousands of years ago, 13 yogis from India (each practicing 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 inner flow of energy in its practice.

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

During this training, 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 as how they have created thousands of years ago in the Himalayas.

On the 7th day of your teacher training, you'll have your exam at the ashram of Perguruan Seruling Dewata and you will be given a certificate of traditional Balinese Watukaru yoga and meditation teacher training after successful completion of your training. This teacher training is certified by World Yoga Alliance.

Apart from your two daily yoga sessions, 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, Balinese traditional dance performance and more, giving you the opportunity to experience authentic Balinese Hindu culture while learning to be a traditional Balinese Watukaru yoga teacher.

Whether you're a complete beginner in yoga or meditation, you have been in love with yoga for years, or you're already an experienced yoga instructor, this 30-hour Balinese Watukaru Yoga teacher training course will empower you with knowledge, wisdom, strength, and consistency in your own practice of yoga and self-love.

During your training, you’ll learn and practice traditional Balinese Watukaru yoga, meditation, pranayama, and chakra opening. Run only by local people in a traditional Balinese village away from other tourism, this is the perfect place for you to arrive, to learn, and to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.

Most importantly, this teacher training course 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. To all of you who share this journey of life, Balitrees Retreats offers an experience of profound beauty, grace, authenticity, wholesomeness, human warmth, respect, and care. They can't wait to welcome and grow with you!
