Before you start to read about what this meditation, mindfulness, and yoga retreat actually is, stop, close your eyes, take three slow deep breaths and then ask yourself: "How am I really?" Just sit with the response for a few moments!
Doesn't it feel wonderful to take a few sacred seconds of your day to make it all about you? So really, how are you? If the answer is "not as good as I can be", whether it is on a spiritual, physical, or emotional level, then let yourself discover techniques to help change how you feel.
On the other hand, if you feel "I'm on top of the world, the best I've ever been". Congratulations! Give yourself a well-earned rest in paradise and practice how to retain those positive, happy feelings, and share them with others.
The spacious rooms sit lazily in their luscious, well established gardens, thus providing a wonderful and tranquil area which is literally 20 steps from the beach. The beautiful Balinese style rooms have a fan & fresh hot water showers. They are completely private rooms and most have A/C as standard. As guests of the retreat, you will have full and exclusive use of the fantastic yoga studio, which is situated almost at the waters edge and has quite possibly the best studio view in Bali. The onsite amenities are of a very high standard as you would expect. The restaurant serves the most gorgeous food and is ideally positioned next to the pool, a perfect place to eat, lounge and plunge during free time! We have many variations of accommodation ranging from 1 person, couples & families right through to large groups so if you have a particular requirement please do not hesitate in contacting us so we can discuss room arrangements and of course rates and discounts.
This retreat is specifically designed for beginners and intermediates of any age or gender but of course, everyone is welcome! Let Sarah guide you through Hatha, Vinyasa, Fly-High and Yin inspired yoga classes in their breathtaking, ocean front, Balinese style yoga shala. Along the way you will discover other techniques such as meditation and mindfulness, as well as looking at the chakras and Ayurveda to deepen your understanding of how you really are. You will listen to the natural rhythms of nature, especially the ocean, from the moment you rise until the moment it lullabies you to sleep. The peaceful atmosphere reminds you to find and follow your own gentle flow and to relax and unwind on the mystical island of Bali.
Because we are aware that our yoga retreat is also a 'holiday on the paradise island of Bali' we want you to feel the true essence, spirituality & culture of this alluring Indonesian island.
With this in mind, welcome to... Explore Bali - Included in your package are two day trips. The first, a day trip to the breathtaking Ujung Water Palace & an afternoon trip to the beautiful Tirta Gangga Water Temple which includes a swim in the fresh spring-water pool. The second day is a visit to the local Balinese spiritual healer, a short trek through the jungle to his hillside home. We can promise you that visiting this healer is truly unique and very few outsiders get to experience this in Indonesia.

The beautiful Puri Oka Beach Bungalows in Bali is truly magical and a perfect venue for our How are you really? Yoga retreat! Set in what used to be a traditional fishing village, nestled where the mountains meet the sea, we decided to use this venue not only for its fabulous views and facilities but because of the most amazing atmosphere it provides. The spacious rooms sit lazily in their luscious, well established gardens thus providing a wonderful and tranquil area which is literally 20 steps to the beach (count if you like!). As guests of the How are you really? Yoga retreat team you will have full and exclusive use of the fantastic ocean view yoga studio which is situated almost at the waters edge and has quite possibly the best studio view in Bali! The onsite amenities are of a very high standard as you would expect. The restaurant serves the most gorgeous food and is ideally positioned next to the pool... a perfect place to eat, lounge and plunge during free time!
The price of this retreat includes a daily delicious vegetarian breakfast and dinner. The restaurant sits directly on the ocean front, so in the morning you can watch the fisherman bring their catch of the day. The restaurant not only provides good healthy food but beautiful sunsets while enjoying an afternoon appetizer.
There is the perfect blend of activities and free time during this week so that as well as experiencing a retreat environment you also have the opportunity to feel like you have had a holiday: either spend time lounging by the pool or exploring the surrounding unspoiled area of Candidasa or in quiet contemplation on your veranda while the soft scent of frangipani flowers soothe the senses.
