This yoga retreat will take place in Bali and its neighboring islands, Gili Meno and Lombok. The mere mention of Bali evokes dreams of paradise. It's more than a place; it's a mood, an aspiration, a tropical state of mind, and one of Exhale Yoga Retreats' favorite places. The moment you arrive in Bali, the rich diverse culture engulfs you in a warm welcome, and you understand why it is known as the island of the gods.

Bali is one island with so many things to see and do. With beautiful rolling rice fields, historic temples, delicious food, friendly culture, and of course surf and beach life, there are so many sides to Bali. Yes, Bali has beaches, surfing, diving, and resorts great and small, but it's the essence of Bali - and the Balinese - that makes it so much more than just a fun-in-the-sun retreat destination.

Your home in Bali will be the Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat Hotel. It’s set in a small, traditional Balinese village among verdant rice fields. This secluded location, nestled between Sukawati and Pantai Purnama on the eastern shore of Bali, is far from traffic, pollution, and the crowds of tourists found in Ubud and southern Bali, but still conveniently located close to the beach and other key Bali landmarks.

From Bali, you will cruise across the pristine waters to Gili Meno, located off the coast of Lombok. The Gili islands are three picturesque tropical islands sprinkled with coconut palms and surrounded by coral reefs brimming with marine life. There, you will spend four tranquil days doing yoga, relaxing on white sand beaches, and swimming in turquoise waters.

The neighboring island of Lombok will be your final stop on the retreat. Lombok is often compared to Bali 40 years ago. This island invites adventure and exploration, rising out of the ocean with massive headlands, coastlines littered with breathtaking turquoise bays, secluded white sand beaches, and world-class surf breaks. Here, you will spend three adventurous days practicing yoga, surfing the best waves, exploring waterfalls, and relaxing at poolside.

You have included in the price of this retreat a total of 13 breakfasts, six lunches, and 11 dinners. During the retreat, you will be served delicious Indonesian dishes. There are six lunches and two dinners held at additional costs. The restaurants chosen to eat outside the hotels offer a verity of healthy and delicious items at very good prices. The recommended budget for additional cost meals on noted days is 7 to 10 USD for lunch and 10 USD to 13 USD for dinner.

Private yoga, Pilates, or dance class(es)

Private classes can be scheduled prior to your arrival or arranged during your stay. Private classes allow for a highly personalized experience with undivided attention. These classes are appropriate for all levels of experience, and can be tailored to meet your needs and help you reach your goals. It costs 55 USD per session.

Scooter rental

Scooters are available everywhere and cost between 5 USD and 7 USD for 24 hours. Driving in Bali can be hectic and a international drivers license is required on the main island of Bali to drive a scooter. These can be obtained in your home country or in Bali for 30 USD.

Scuba diving

The Gili Islands have some of the best scuba diving spots in Indonesia. Blue Marlin Dive offers a range of PADI dive courses.

Shopping trips

Bali has some amazing shopping opportunities. There are plans in the schedule for shopping in Ubud and Seminyak, but if you want to spend some extra time going to shops, transportation can be arranged. Price will vary depending on drive time.

Snorkeling

Group snorkeling trips can be arranged on Gili Meno, two hours for 10 USD including equipment and boat. Or just snorkel directly off the beachfront of Seri Resort in pristine coral gardens. Equipment rental costs five USD

SUP and kayaking

The Gili Islands offer pristine calm waters perfect for cursing on a SUP or Kayak. Available for rent between 10 USD and 15 USD.

Surf lessons

Surf lessons sign up forms will be sent two days prior to surf day. Tides and conditions will vary so times may change. Surf lessons in Bali with transportation is 60 USD for one participant or 50 USD with two or more people. Surf lessons on Lombok with transportation is 30 USD for one participant or 25 USD with two or more people.

Travelling with your own board? Surf trips to surrounding beaches and breaks can be organized. The cost of transportation is between 10 USD to 30 USD, depending on drive time.

Waterfall hike

You can join a beautiful waterfall hike in Lombok on November 4, 2106 at an additional cost of 25 USD.

Floating Leaf offers a wonderful Melati Spa with a wide range of Balinese treatments and organic, eco-friendly spa therapies designed to nurture health, beauty, and rejuvenation. Prices depend on treatment chosen. Seri Resort on the tranquil island of Gili Meno offers relaxing traditional massages and spa treatments. Prices between 9 USD and 40 USD, depending on treatment chosen. Kies Villas' private, in-room messages can be arranged. Prices depend on treatment chosen, but anywhere between 15 USD and 50 USD.

If you want to go outside of the hotels for a message, Bali is the land of massages. There are massage places on every corner and range in price from 7 USD to 40. Quality of the massages varies.

  • Review by Jacqueline Kuiper

    "I’ve just completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training retreat, and seeing how Exhale Yoga Retreats managed to host 40 people over the entire course of 30 days, active for approximately 10 hours each day, it impresses me to no end that not once was the “organizational” ball dropped. "

    "Rachel and Jules have unique gifts in both seeing the big picture, and in executing the finely-tuned day-to-day details. Everything this retreat has offered us – 30 days of being taken care of and guided through – Rachel and Jules have hand-selected and organized. From personally knowing the staff, understanding our rooms and accommodations, having a familiarity with our environment and neighboring locals, planning 30 days worth of nutritious meals, and putting together a program schedule that challenges, nourishes, and enriches all guests is no small task."

    ""

    "At no moment in time was there an awkward or anxious pause of, “What now?” Exhale Yoga Retreats has already organized the “What now?” as well as the “What’s next?” so guests can relax with ease into their journey of exploration, growth, and enjoyment. Rachel and Jules work as such a dynamic pair, ensuring that all aspects of the Exhale Yoga Retreat experience are considered and provided for."

    "Exhale Yoga Retreats made us feel so comfortable and everything was taken care of before we could even think of it! Through their presence, kindness and guidance a wonderful community of yogis was built and after a very short time it felt like having a new little family I don't know how they do it, but the organization of the retreat couldn't have been better and I'd give more than 5 stars if available! Big hugs and thank you so much for this wonderful experience!"

  • Review by Camille

    "I booked this yoga retreat looking to charge my batteries and meet some new people. What I found was truly paradise. I didn’t think El Salvador would be a place that I would really miss – and here I am a week after getting home from the retreat still dreaming about those burning red vibrant sunsets, that ocean breeze, the friendly locals, the fresh (and inexpensive!) fish tacos, and all of the friends I made during the week! It was the perfect balance of carefree fun, relaxing in the hammocks, adventures like hiking to a beautiful waterfall, deep conversations, personal growth, and individual meditation/introspection. I am so grateful to have been a part of this retreat – the yoga sessions touched me deeply and challenged me in a way I had not felt before. I can’t overstate how much this week was enhanced by the people that came! Jules and Rachel exude a special kind of energy that is like a magnet for good people – not only did we spend the week in paradise, but we spent the week surrounded by really good company! I am already looking forward to coming back next year. All my love to the exhale yoga retreat yogis! See you soon!! Xx"

    "Upon arrival, I felt very welcomed from the airport pick-up to meeting the Exhale Yoga Retreats team. The entire life affirming experience exceeded my expectations. I felt a big improvement in my poses, my meditation practice, and spiritual development. The classes were carefully thought out and challenging for many regardless of how experienced you are in your practice. Exhale Yoga Retreats pieced together an authentic schedule that included a morning vinyasa class and evening yin class, delicious and healthy breakfast and dinner meals all amongst the beautiful grounds at Boca Olas and hooked us up with the locals to enjoy the surfing and waterfall hiking. Thank you to @crystalrainbowborrelli @arielswan @rachelwainwright for being such generous teachers and genuinely taking care of us to ensure we had a good time. I can truly say I made some really good friend here for life."

    "I highly recommend @exhaleyogaretreats and can't wait to sign up for the next one."

  • Review by Tammy

    "Experience of a lifetime! An amazing adventure top to bottom, for the young and the young at heart! Never a dull moment - so much to see, do and learn...or to simply sit back, relax and EXHALE. Rachel and Jules, and all of the dynamic people they select for their team, go above and beyond to provide a healthy, fun, energizing and challenging experience, tailored to each individual. Fostering self awareness, finding comfort outside of your comfort zone, and facilitating the building of friendships and connections that last a lifetime are high on their agenda. They cultivate an inclusive mind, body and soul holistic approach at their retreats - with yoga classes that pay special attention to varying levels of experience and physical limitations, and impart an understanding of the origins, branches and teachings of this beautiful and ancient practice. I feel such a deep sense of accomplishment, having been able to achieve more in form than I ever imagined! After just one week I feel an AMAZING transformation taking place within - physically and mentally! It doesn't end there! Delicious and nutritious menus, options to take up surfing, hiking, spectacular waterfalls and sunsets, absorb the local scenery, music and culture are all made available for you. Consideration of the environment and visiting and integrating with locals is part of the wonderful journey. We were able to meet and play with children at the village orphanage, an experience that humbles the heart, brings enormous joy and blesses you with a grand appreciation for life. Thank you Exhale Yoga Retreats...I had such a blast dancing like no one was watching! You've changed my life!"

    "Rachel Wainwright, Jules SeaMan and the staff of Exhale Yoga Retreats know how to organize a life changing trip. First and foremost they check out the accommodations and make friends with the locals. They do a dry run and if something needs tweaking they address it. Then the yoga, let's just say "world class"....Super grateful and would definitely do again."

    "Exhale Yoga Retreats was everything that I didn't know I needed."

    ""

    "Rachel and Jules' work tirelessly to bring together a truly exceptional and affirming experience. The Bali Wander retreat came together in such a synchronous and harmonious way, that it left all of us - who started as strangers - feeling connected, peaceful, and like we had known each other forever. "

    "The retreat was a yoga retreat in every sense of the word - asana practice aside - and each day was founded on one of the yamas or niyamas, and we were urged to to practice the teachings of this ancient moral code throughout the day. "

    "I believe everyone found a little piece of themselves that they didn't know they were searching for, and I returned home with a renewed sense of motivation to take on life's challenges with grace and a smile. "

    "I thank Rachel, Jules, Ariel, and Nicky for creating such a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend Exhale Yoga Retreats for anyone looking for a little affirmation, guidance, rest, peace, and FUN! "

From beautiful accommodations, to brilliant food, and of course amazing yoga classes we were in the lap of luxury. Not to mention the breath taking vistas from the beach, Exhale Yoga Retreats really had every last detail figured out. The yoga teachers were very experienced and really set the tone for the trip.

    "I look back on last year’s retreat so fondly, it really changed my life, causing me set my values and goals, envision the life I wanted and let go of some things from the past. I came back feeling super open and clear and described it to others as it was like all the muscles in my neck were relaxed, allowing more blood to get to my brain. I get little glimpses of that feeling again whenever I practice yoga and plan to do more of it this year."

  • Review by Shannon

    "So I decided to attend the Exhale Yoga Retreat… I did this with some hesitation, I knew it would be amazing but I was honestly reserved due to some personal history and insecurity on my part…"

    "In my time in Nicaragua for the retreat, I had the chance to experience so many different things… I got to spend time with and learn about so many friends that I knew from Vancouver but also got to meet some extraordinary people that were new and amazing. I think that the environment that was created was so unique and special, people were able to release there inhibitions and truly be themselves."

    "For myself, regardless of any insecurities that I may have had, I felt myself be comfortable in my uncomfortableness, and being able to let it go. The space and energy and support that was provided, was the trigger to releasing known and unknown stressors and in turn inspiring new thought and passions."

    "I am so incredibly inspired by the work that both of you have done in cultivating your dreams and visions, while creating the life that you want to live. I look forward to partaking in all of your new adventures and I so proud of you both… "

    "Love with all my heart."

The people who find their way onto these Exhale Yoga Retreats are just amazing! The group dynamic is all like-minded souls enjoying adventures and yoga in paradise! I love to surf and explore, the locations offer that and more. The yoga teachings have changed my life and inspired me to have my own personal practice. Can't wait for the next one!"

    "Playing outside in a beautiful location with beautiful people feels like soul medicine. I've had the pleasure of attending two jungle Exhale Yoga Retreats and am making it a life priority to attend future ones! What an experience it is to reconnect with movement, nature, and adventure again. Often times, I get caught up in the daily responsibilities of life and Exhale Yoga Retreats' trips reminds me of that spark of joy within! I practice yoga regularly in Vancouver. However, the week of classes with brilliant teachers allows for a greater self expansion and connection. After the retreats, I always feel as though my spirit has been reignited! And I mean, who doesn't love ocean dips?"

    "Words can't begin to describe this absolutely amazing experience. The January 2016 retreat at Maderas village was awesome. I have never started a year more refreshed, positive, and inspired. Rachel, Yeva, and Ariel are talented and creative teachers, who made the classes both challenging and full of laughs. Throughout the retreat, they did an amazing job striking the perfect balance between yoga, self development, jungle parties, planned excursions, and free time, and they made each component so much fun. The Maderas village, in the Nica jungle just steps away from Playa Maderas, was the perfect location to disconnect and reacquaint with nature. The owners and residents at Maderas were welcoming hosts and also enhanced the good vibes on the trip. The most amazing thing that I took away from the retreat though is a tribe of 34 new friends. I went solo on the Nica trip (almost half of the people on the trip also went alone) and recommend that anyone who is considering to do the same to just do it. You seriously won't regret it. I will absolutely go on another retreat in the future. So in love with the work that Exhale Yoga Retreats is doing!"

    "Hey Rachel! My mindset and whole being shifted in one class with you! You remain the proud inspiration of my first headstand ever over two years ago. I will go to my grave with upside down visions of you smiling over me and the thatched roof suddenly looking like the floor. Your classes are powerful stuff for me and your retreat has become an essential part of starting my new year with clarity health and intention. Not to mention the impromptu dance parties :) Good people and good times and it all starts at the top with you!"

    "The Nicaragua holiday with Exhale Yoga Retreats was the perfect way to relax, re-focus, and re-energize. The food, accommodation, service, and yoga classes were top-notch. Providing options for other group activities was a great touch - and allowed solo travelers like myself to meet and connect with like-minded people. Loved Vinyasa classes in the morning and Yin yoga in the evening. The music playlists were also fantastic! Two thumbs up, five stars, would highly recommend!"

    "I couldn't have thought of a better way to start off 2015 than to be in Nicaragua with Exhale Yoga Retreats! I was nervous attending a yoga retreat by myself but the group of people I met and spent the week with were nothing short of supportive, loving, and not to mention so much fun! The location was absolutely incredible as well as the food. The yoga was spectacular and I will forever be attending Exhale Yoga Retreats!"
