BALI RETREAT 2019
Picture yourself stepping into the reception of Bali’s Premier Health and Wellbeing Spa Retreat in the hills outside of Ubud. A sense of space and freedom washes over you as you realise you’re in the heart of the jungle and in every direction from this hill top view the vista is pure magic. You literally feel yourself thaw out, as you leave Winter behind you. This location is revered as a sacred place safe from the outside world. Welcome home.
Manicured lawns carpeting rolling hills with beautiful stone paths and statues, covered with a hint of moss, blend seamlessly into the nature that abounds. Beautiful raised villas, dotted spaciously across the 5 hectares of hillside gardens provide sufficient space for absolute privacy. Each villa with magnificent views from wide windows and spacious verandahs provide a sense of space, quiet and peace. This is the place where heaven and earth collide. In the silence, birds and frogs find their voice, and it is a welcome melody. The gentle sound of the resorts natural waterfall softly caresses every moment.
Every face you meet greets you with a warm, genuine smile. Marigolds line the stairways to the spring water infinity pool that seems to fall away into the jungle that surrounds.
You enter the most beautiful yoga pavilion and roll out your yoga mat. A deeper connection with yourself builds through your meditation and sincere yoga practice. Space and freedom unfold as you embrace the now and let go of what is no longer serving you. Waking from deep relaxation, you feel rejuvenated, restored and ready to face the day with a new sense of joy and a passion that sets your heart on fire. You are part of something special and it is truly felt in this space.
A luxurious spa and it’s beautiful practitioners await you, you slip into your robe and make your way to the treatment room, all the stresses melt away as your body is released of tension with a balinese massage. You float off the table and into the jacuzzi, where you melt a little deeper into sheer bliss. A restorative herbal tea helps to soften your gaze over the surrounding forest. Next-door is the gym, across the hall is the herbal steam room, maybe you’ll check those out tomorrow.
The sun goes down and lanterns, sprinkled across the resort grounds, provide an ambient light. You stroll the hill to our beautiful restaurant and bar. Healthy organic Indonesian and international meals fill the menu, produce sourced from the resorts very own organic gardens. You let out a whispered sigh, you really have arrived. You enjoy a wonderful meal, engaging company, lots of warmth and laughter and know that you are part of something very special.
Returning to your villa, you feel like royalty as you rest your head, close your eyes and sink into a deep sleep, ready to do it all again tomorrow….

2020 Bali Retreat | Registration Form
“A discovery into oneself… with a bit of fun thrown in for balance, and a truly breath-taking backdrop. This exceeded all my expectations. A spiritual journey and a deep look within. It raised questions I had never thought about before. So much more than just yoga. An amazing experience. I hope I can do it again. Everything was perfect.”
“Having never done a retreat before, I had no expectations and had an open mind. I was basically looking forward to some time for me, doing what I love – yoga. It has turned out to be a very special, self-discovery journey, surrounded by amazing woman and guided by a very special woman, Pru.”
“More than yoga. This has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself. This week has helped me heal, reconnect with myself and the deepest parts of my soul and I am eternally grateful for this experience and the nurturing and loving kindness you have given. Your attention to detail ensured that everything ran smoothly. The extra little touches were perfect and enriched the total yoga experience. The water temple ‘and other surprises’ were life changing and amazing experiences…. the dinners, lunches and all social activities were awesome. The company was also impeccable. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are truly an inspirational woman. You have a wonderful and very unique gift to give the very best of yourself to so many. It has been a privilege to go on this journey with you. xxx”
