During the immersion you will say on joglos, a typical Indonesian art crafted houses with a main house in the middle where we held our yoga teachings. It's a very familiar and cozy set-up and we want to keep it small for a more accurate attention to the students and friendly environment. The Village has a beautiful garden, swimming pool, living area and it's only 5 minutes from the beach.

GAYA Immersions Bali Yoga Retreat Program

The retreat will allow you to deepen the practice of Ashtanga yoga with one of the few handful certified teachers of Pattabhi Jois Institute and get in touch with our work with local community as a contribution to give it back.

This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures, producing intense internal heat and a profuse, and purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light, strong body, and a calm mind. You will have the rare opportunity to be in a small group for a more private approach and support.

  • Led class at 08:00am followed by our Plastic Sunday, where we go with Bali Green kids to clean up the beach.
