The Yoga Rejuvenation and Healing Retreat is a carefully designed program and opportunity to delve beneath the surface of the usual yoga retreat experience in Bali. You'll be guided by yoga teachers with decades of teaching and facilitation experience. You will immerse yourselves in the deeply spiritual traditions and rituals of the Balinese people and attune to the healing potential of the sacred waters and this incredible land. You'll emerge revitalized and ready for the new year ahead.

Facilitated by Robert and Mandy of Kookaburra Yoga, the retreat program has a generous balance of yoga, meditation, relaxation, breathwork as well as a healing ceremony with Bali's youngest high priestess, a healing chakra meditation at the sacred Besakih Mother Temple, bathing in the volcanic waters of Mount Batur and under a sacred waterfall and secret grotto under green cliffs.

Sacred Water of Bali

Bali's spiritual and healing traditions honour, revere and incorporate the cleansing, renewing and healing properties of water and include many rites, sacred ceremonies and focussed healing in the water temples, palaces and also stunning natural rivers and waterfalls. During this retreat you will visit some of the most sacred waters of Bali in thermal springs, a water cave and waterfall.
