About This Center

If you really need to change your life and give yourself a gift of personal growth, our Bali Detox and Yoga retreat programs are an excellent choice for you.

Our bodies naturally cleanse themselves through detoxifying our organs. However, our liver and gut suffer from the stresses of modern lifestyles that challenge, instead of support their functions.  It’s easier to continue running a stressful daily lifestyle than it is to step away to nourish ourselves. This is where our detox tailored program come in. Our friendly holistic team at Villa Gaia in Ubud, Bali, ensure you are engaging in a well-researched protocol to give your body the nutrients it needs to function properly and support your cleanse. 

During your free time, you will enjoy colonic sessions, lymphatic, abdominal, full body massages, body scrub, far infrared sauna, reflexology, daily invigorating yoga sessions and plenty of inward time to relax over a stack of books on health & wellness.
The idea is for you to love our detox programs, rehydrate, and reset your digestive and sleeping patterns to its optimal level as you leave Bali feeling fully energized again and most importantly, walk away learning how to continuously detox in life.

The intense detox program gave me the ability to cleanse from the inside (juices and colonics) as well as energetically (massage treatments and emotional therapy) and for the mind (Gaia Retreat Center offers a calm environment to relax and reflects) - Laura van Schravendijk
