This hidden magical retreat is a quiet, restful, and spiritual destination located in a beautiful setting surrounded by green rice fields, just a short, ten minutes walk from downtown Ubud, the cultural epicenter of Bali.

A small, bubbling creek runs next to the villa center and from our doorstep one can walk for hours through lush rice fields and coconut tree lined trails. As the city swells with traffic and pedestrians, we offer a relaxing, meditative escape from the hustle, and bustle of the hectic tourist scene.

Our houses are built primarily of wood and natural sustainable material such as bamboo and alang alang, limiting the use of chemical products. Rooms are equipped with fans and designed in such a way that the natural river and jungle breeze cool down the room temperature. We avoid the use of plastic bags, bottles (you can refill yours at the reception) and straws as much as possible. Our goal is to minimize our impact on nature.

During the days you can observe monkeys, birds and a rich wildlife around you.

In this retreat you can develop a higher consciousness, practice Hatha-yoga, and attend various art classes including intuitive painting, sound healing therapy, and contemporary dance.

Hatha yoga is an old system that includes the practice of Asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.

Intuitive painting is a creative practice that releases impulses usually corralled by the logical part of the brain to make a work of art. People who use this technique employ their intuition to paint automatically without stopping to plan for the outcome of the piece. It is about letting go of fear or expectations to allow your painting to evolve individually into a piece of art.

Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.

Sound healing is the process by which participants play or listen to live or recorded sounds, in order to have a positive experience which they may subjectively report as physical, emotional, energetic, spiritual, or a combination thereof. Listening to percussive instruments like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, and tuning forks reduces stress, and can place the listener in a meditative state. The sound vibrates at the frequency of "AUM" or "OM". This sound frequency known as that of Perfection impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls.

Our retreat is available to individuals, couples and groups. Yoga classes are open to all levels, from beginners to experienced. Teaching style and class levels will be fitted to accommodate participants needs. We work in small and intimate sized classes during the retreat to be able to give the best of our attention to everyone. Our teachers are highly-qualified and devoted souls. Our groups are joyful, we love to have fun and to be open-minded to exchange thoughts.

The price of this retreat includes a guided rice field tour, a sacred river bathing, and a visit to the cultural center of Ubud.

This retreat will take place in Ubud, Bali.

Bali is probably the most famous island in Indonesia, It blends spectacular mountain scenery and beautiful beaches with warm and friendly people, a vibrant culture and out of this world resorts. Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali appeals through its sheer natural beauty of looming volcanoes and lush terraced rice fields that exude peace and serenity.

For this exotic island has much to offer, from inspirational spirituality to fine dining and meeting experiences, from world class surfing and diving to exhilarating treks in the wild. Everywhere you will find intricately carved temples.

The Balinese, who embrace the Hindu religion, are a most devout people where a large part of their lives is dedicated to rites and ceremonies aimed at maintaining harmony in this world. Indeed, this relatively small island holds many surprises. It is a place of aesthetic and physical beauty, not only in the architecture and the land, but also reflected in the Balinese who live there and in their art, music, and culture that form an integral part of their lives.

The mountains and the ocean represent positive and negative energies or yin and yang and maintain a perfect balance and harmony with the land.

The town of Ubud, in the uplands of Bali, is known as a center for art, traditional crafts and dance. The surrounding Ubud District’s rainforest and terraced rice paddies, dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, are among Bali’s most famous landscapes. Ancient holy sites include the intricately carved Goa Gajah (“Elephant Cave”) and Gunung Kawi, with its rock-cut shrines, the Monkey forest and many hidden temples and waterfalls.

  • Review by James Patten from Australia

    "Ive just tried this and I love it! Its a well-proportioned mixture in every sense. the other guests and the teachers at the retreat were all coming from different backgrounds, different levels and nationality. Loved the vibe of this we are all one, and we are all open mentality that came from it. Made for a great little community.It was just as diverse activity-wise; visual stimulation for the mind, music for relaxation, dance as a form of active meditation, yoga for soul-searching and consciousness, while I didnt have to miss out on taking advantage of the location. I got to do the touristy stuff as well - Marrakesh, Atlas Mountain. Somehow, it all came together and complement each other. Props to the hosts for coming up with this combo!"

  • Review by Pedro from Mexico

    "Yoga Art was a far cry from a surf camp: its a spiritual getaway to rebuild yourself in every possible way: mentally, physically, emotionally. And when you are becoming One with the universe, you probably want to become one with the ocean as well. Go with the flow and feel the waves. It worked well for me and my travelling buddies were not complaining either. If you are a surfer aching for a higher level experience, look no further. Although I did the retreat as a beginner surfer with little experience in yoga, it worked perfectly for me as well."

  • Review by Anastasia Algerho from Spain

    "I would gladly recommend it! Ive considered their instructors more of teachers, which tells a lot. They really focus on spirituality, not just on body exercise (which doesn't mean they ignore it, but just that they really taking it to another level). Its not just an active holiday, but a full reinvention of yourself. They really focus on mindfulness, which in my experience not necessarily something thats true for most of every yoga holiday."

  • Review by Andre Holmes from France

    "Luxury and yoga rarely go together, so Yoga-Art is absolutely filling a gap! At least for me it was a perfect combination. I really appreciated the comfort, and the option of not giving up on anything I would want in a holiday, but still having the purpose of practising yoga. I was more than happy with the classes and lectures and the accommodation as well.The one week program was filled with so many different activities. Everybody from the party I was going with found their own ways to enjoy it (spiritual-journey fanatics were as delighted as my friend, who never tried yoga before but was looking for a artist-y getaway). So to sum it up, absolutely no complaints whatsoever. After that Im absolutely convinced that yoga-holidays are the best way to escape from the world for a while."

  • Review by Luciano Bordeno from Italy

    "I was simply looking for some kind of exotic vacation when I found Yoga-Art but I came back from a complete spiritual cleansing. I attended some yoga classes before, but the 6 days I spent at the retreat really helped me progress. As a holiday it was a mind blowingly fulfilling, but the takeaway was even better: a relaxed body and soul and the willingness to incorporate it (and yoga) into my life from now on."

Testimonials

  • Review by Boris Chapajev from Russia

    "I had the pleasure of working on myself with the teachers or trainers of Yoga-Art. I am not exactly an expert in yoga (or consciousness for that matter), but I could tell that they were all experienced - and moreover interesting - people in their own fields. They have different approaches for reaching the same goal: experiencing the world on a different level. Some of this ways were more, some of them less useful for me - but the beauty of the whole concept is that they werent trying to tell me how to achieve this peace, but offering options for me to find my own way. As someone who cant be bothered to join in on anything rigorous, I would truly recommend it to anyone whos either a born-and-raised free spirit, or who would really like to be one!"
