This retreat will take place at H2O Yoga and Meditation Center located in the tranquil island of Gili Air just two hours from Bali. Whilst traveling in 2009, the founder, Bindu, had the opportunity to tour the island and promptly decided that it was the place to realize his dream of setting up yoga and meditation center. From then on he had made many trips to Lombok and decided to open the center in May 2011.
Gili Air literally means 'island of water', the living earth with 70% water like that of the human body. The element water relates to emotions, which when in harmony, ebb and flow like great oceans. H20 represents health, happiness, and optimism. H20 is a peaceful sanctuary that provides space for intimate reflection and facilitates connection with other like-minded wanderers.
Gili Air's exquisite coastline offers beautiful white sandy beaches, sea view, and restaurants serving fresh fish. The tranquil water surrounding the island is perfect for snorkeling and diving and a great place to swim with turtles. H2O provides the opportunity to seek balance in body and mind in a superb natural, outdoor setting.
There are no motorized vehicles on the quintessential tropical island of Gili Air. The main means of transportation are bicycles and horse and cart. The island very much invites you to immerse yourself in a slower, more even paced way of being. The silent breeze is only intermittently broken by the sounds of village life, the call to prayer from the neighboring mosque, falling coconuts, and bird song.
You will be served with healthy breakfast of brown bread eggs, fruit, and herbal tea during the retreat. You can also enjoy the food at "Good Earth Cafe" which serves gluten-free, vegan, and raw food delights with many juices to enjoy.
You will be pampered with spa and massage treatments which include one 60-minute full-body traditional massage, one 60-minute nature bath, one 30-minute reflexology treatment, one 60-minute manicure, and one 60-minute pedicure.
It is very easy to travel from Bali to Gili Air since most hotels can organize it. Usually, the shuttle bus picks you up around 7 a.m. and takes you to the boat and you will arrive at the retreat center approximately at 11.30 a.m. The cost is approximately 300,000 IDR for one-way combo transfer of the shuttle bus and fast boat.
