Find the balance in your body and mind amidst the serene setting at Shanti Toya Ashram. You will have daily yoga practices, relaxing afternoons to enjoy the ashram, and free time to explore the community or venture to other areas on the Island of the Gods, Bali. The ashram is located only half an hour from the beach, giving you the chance to also rejuvenate in the beautiful beaches of Bali.
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.
