Off-the-Grid Yoga Retreat in Bali

About This Event

Looking for meaning, clarity, and purpose in your life? Yearning to leave the virtual world behind and  embark on a REAL adventure? Then grab your passport and rekindle your passion for life as we explore this sacred rain-forest together. Join us for 8 days of love and sisterhood under the infinite stars of Mount Batukaru in the Tabanan Regency, Central Bali, away from the busy and crowded South Bali. Take the next step on the journey to a life you love!


Immerse yourself in the healing stillness of nature as you explore the plantation. Get lost in authentic conversations with fellow pilgrims in our group. Laugh with the locals you meet along the way. Experience unique moments that change your life.

But, DON’T worry about the details and logistics, it’s all been taken care of FOR you!


Sense the stumbling blocks crumble away as you hear your heart sing a new song and feel your soul expand.

Return home peaceful and grounded, fully present to your life, and ready to take the next natural step to the amazing life you were born to live.

This retreat is designed for anyone yearning to reconnect with themselves and with nature by way of practicing daily yoga and enjoying the unspoilt sides of Bali. Mount Batukaru is worshiped by the Balinese and is a highly sacred and spiritual place. Restore and replenish your energy with dynamic strength building practice in the mornings and a gentler restorative practice in the evenings.  


Your Retreat begins at Alassari Plantation, a luxury estate created by the owners Craig and Val in support of the local community of Biyahan, on the mountainous range of Batukaru. Set in a private coffee plantation and high on the mystical Mount Batukaru in Bali's central rainforest, the energy of this special place is instantly felt upon entering the gates. 

Wake up in the rainforest to the sound of birds, and local wildlife, you can hear the gentle murmur of the creek down the valley, as the day heats up, the butterflies come out to play and the sun rests above the trees.

Start the day with a rejuvenating yoga class in the open-plan bamboo yoga shala, followed by a sumptuous breakfast. From there, choose from taking a time out at the reflection bale, pampering yourself with luxurious massages or spa treatments, or have a wander in the 1-hectare plantation and swim in the creek at the bottom of the valley.  At sundown we’ll gather for a restorative yoga class and meditation, and savour a delicious dinner overlooking the beautiful lush plantation and majestic Mount Batukaru.

Whether you are an advanced Yoga practitioner or beginner, our experienced Yoga Teacher will support and guide you throughout your week and beyond.

Whilst the venue is a luxury experience, it is a very traditional Balinese/Javanese blend style accommodation with antiques personally sourced by Craig and Val, making each room uniquely distinguished.

There will be plenty of free time to enjoy a swim in the pool, read a book, have a massage, have a walk around the lush plantation, and take a time out for reflection.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan
