During the retreat, you will be accommodated in two locations. You will have half of the week with beach accommodations and a relaxing way to ease into your holiday. You will stay at an award-winning boutique family hotel that will host you at both locations in Bali. The first is sumptuous yet unassuming, an ocean front retreat that lies in the shade of Mount Agung, held up as sacred by Balians, and surrounded by opulent coconut groves.

Midway through the week, you will head into Bali's most famous town of Ubud. You will be hosted in luxury accommodations, a tranquil and secluded hillside retreat that sits high up on the edge of the rich green Ayung River valley in Bali's central foothills, in the traditional Balinese hill village of Payangan. Both hotels offer award-winning design accommodations and even one of the world's top 50 pools.

Program

This retreat is part of Eat.Pray.Move Yoga Holiday Retreats' initiative, where they will donate at least 10 percent of profits to a humanitarian partner in the community, where each retreat is held. The partner in India is "Threads of Life", a fair trade business that works with culture and conservation to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia.

On this trip, you will not only enjoy the grounds of the villa, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio and lounges, but the retreat also includes some amazing day trips to the surrounding sites. A guided day in and around Ubud will lead you through an introduction to this area. You will visit a spice plantation, get to participate in a Balinese healing and fire ritual, and learn Balinese cooking during our cuisine lesson.

There will be time in nature, on the beaches, and also you will get to visit the Indonesian weavers of Eat.Pray.Move Yoga Holiday Retreats "give back" partner in Bali and learn more about the amazing textiles of the area.

The final full day entails a trip to the luxurious Four Seasons, where you will delve deeper into Bali's serene beauty and tradition by spending a day in the life of a local farmer, from a private guided walk through rice fields and jungle paths, followed by a picnic breakfast in a rice field pavilion, known as a "bale". You will then help local farmers plant rice with traditional methods.

Afterwards, you will go to the spa villa close to the banks of the river for a traditional bathing ritual, scrub, and massage. What a way to end the week, in pure relaxation.

Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to more experienced students, and can range from gentle, Restorative, more vigorous Vinyasa flow, and Ashtanga styles.

Style and class levels will be determined and molded to fit students' needs. With a small, intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfort to deeply explore their practice. Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for you to use if the weather is agreeable. Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat. All levels are welcome.
