The Heart of Bali: A Transformational Breathwork, Yoga, and Meditation Retreat

About us

Often referred to as the Island of the Gods, Bali is encapsulated by lush tropical jungles, mesmerizing volcanoes, turquoise coastal waters, and thousands of Hindu temples. Its indescribable mystery, exquisite art, rich cultural heritage, and deep earth reverence draws countless wandressess and wanderers, yogis and spiritual seekers each year looking to catalyze their own healing and transformation. 

From the moment you place your feet upon the island soil, she will envelop you with her grace...

Bali is unlike any place in the world. The island itself exudes a certain spiritual presence, a nourishing energy that envelops those that travel there, providing a sacred reflection of the beauty inherent within all of us. Whether you are looking for a peaceful winter escape, mystical pilgrimage, or great initiation on your path, Bali calls to those who are meant to come. Take a moment and breathe into your heart … listen … Does the island speak to you? You will know if you are meant to embark on this journey with us…

What aches inside of you to be known and expressed into the world?  

What dreams lie dormant in the recesses of your mind waiting for the invitation to birth into your waking life?  

Our time on this earth is short and each breath sacred.

Sacred Breath Retreats are designed to dive deep into the heart of what matters most and to stimulate an inner devotion to the manifestation of our most luminous embodiment.  

When we come together in openness and receptivity to weave beauty and transformation over the course of these 7 days, each participant (including the facilitators) will leave a completely different person- a truer and more authentic version of themselves. The Heart of Bali Retreat is an powerful opportunity to shed that which no longer serves you and step into your highest potential. The space created for your metamorphosis will be one of grace and profundity, gentle yet deep. 

Join us on a journey of healing, empowerment, and growth in one of the most enchanted places on earth. Inundated by the natural beauty of the island, the organic tropical cuisine, the rejuvenating energy of the elements, and the vibrant culture of the people, this sacred immersion will touch our souls and leave us forever changed.

The Heart of Bali Retreat is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for both men and women of all ages and backgrounds that consists of 7 day-long modules, transformational workshops, yoga, meditation, breathwork, excursions, cultural activities, massage, food, drink, luxury villa accommodations and more…

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
