During this retreat, you will be staying at one of Shanti Toya Ashram's villas and suites. Shanti Toya offers an authentic taste of Bali, nestled in the quiet hillside of a lush jungle ravine and surrounded by the rice paddy farmlands of Penarungan village. It is located approximately 15 minutes southwest of Ubud, a city-center highly regarded and sought after by yogis worldwide as the modern hub of the yoga community.

The property itself is the home of a peaceful gurgling river and an abundant holy spring water source. In addition to the four new villas (each with guest rooms and bathrooms) and two private villas, there is also a beautiful second story thatch-roof bamboo yoga shala, communal open-air dining and lecture hall, reception, store, spring water-fed swimming pool, bale, and an organic vegetable garden.

There are plenty of nature walking opportunities just outside the ashram, through the quaint village and beautiful rice paddies. Shanti Toya Ashram is set in an intimate setting, perfect for smaller retreats of up to 22 guests, which allows a richer experience, more personalized attention, and authentic friendships to form between retreat-goers.


During the retreat, in addition to the morning and afternoon yoga class, you will have three workshops, two hours each during which the teacher will explain you the structure of the sequence, give you options according to your advancement in yoga, and answer to any of your questions.
