You can choose a superior cottage with full kitchen or standard cottages with kitchenette. There are also the choices of a budget accommodation family cabin, pool cabin, and the beach shack, which is within a short distance of walk to the amenities.

Allowing time out for yourself from a busy lifestyle for a few days without stress or external responsibilities, as well as reducing coffee, sugar, and alcohol can provide a cleansing and rejuvenating experience. The retreat program is designed to come together for renewal and rejuvenation, while enjoying a holiday atmosphere.

There is plenty of free time to relax with a choice of bike riding along the cane fields, ocean or pool swimming, in-house holistic treatments, remedial, lymphatic, kahuna massages, Reiki, intuitive readings, and more available on request.

The afternoons are for re-balancing from the activities of the day. It is a time for inner reflection with a focus more on restorative and relaxation practice, often incorporating a yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). Personal attention is given to those with previous injuries with modifications given and props to assist in certain poses.

Restorative yoga is very beneficial for healing the effects of chronic stress when practiced regularly. A 10-minute savasana (relaxation pose) is given after every class.

    "The week has been wonderful! Love the schedule of yoga and meditation, particularly the Restorative yoga in the afternoons. The kindness of Sue, Grant, and all the other women has really helped me as I face some demons and let go of them. The combination of yoga, meditation, massage and rest has meant I feel stronger, clearer, more grounded both physically and emotionally and ready to continue my journey toward a full life. Sue you are an incredible teacher and Grant a wonderful healer! Thank you!! Bali Joyful Spirit Yoga Retreat."

    "If you are looking for an environment to rest and rejuvenate not only your body but also your mind, I would definitely recommend the Joyful Spirit retreat. Great company, great location, supportive atmosphere. Plenty of free time to chill out and reflect, but at the same time 4 hours of yoga every day. This was exactly what I was after when I booked in for the week. "

    "A great gift to myself. I feel renewed and reborn, sounds silly, but it has really happened for me! I am a new person and ready to start living and be happy. A special thanks to Sue and her many years of experience. Yoga was varied and strong enough for all levels. The core energetics work was powerful stuff and Ranil is a master!"

    "When I booked the retreat, my mindset was that I needed to focus on myself through yoga and meditation. The week has been that and so much more. The women I shared my room with have become firm friends and the time we shared talking about our life experiences, laughing and crying have bonded us. We have made a pact to go to Bali next year to do another retreat because this has been so fantastic and a true life experience! Thank you so much, Sue."
