About This Event

When women support each other, beautiful and incredible things happen. This retreat will be for women, best friends, mothers & daughters, or sisters who want to reconnect with their femininity and unplug from their busy yang-dominated lives. Daily yoga and meditation practices, combined with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda will help you to go inwards, feel grounded and reawaken your inner goddess.

One of the most important skills to learn during one's life is the art of self care. This term gets tossed around but what does it really mean? There is a balance to self care: too much can lead to self centeredness and overindulgence while too little can lead to overwhelm and burn out. Therefore a critical component mindfulness and a clear-eyed, conscious examination of one's life and life choices.

We invite you to the lush paradise of Bali for 5 transformational days with other like-minded sisters. The retreat will take place in Bali’s spiritual center, Ubud, where you will be given guidance on yoga, Ayurveda, holistic skincare and nutrition. Together, surrounded by rice fields, we will help you identify and untagle habits that no longer serve you, while setting up ones that do.

Our wish is to create a safe and sacred space where you can unfold and regain the importance of self-care alongside like-minded women. Whether it is your intention to learn and implement daily rituals in your life, to reconnect and embrace the goddess in you, or simply to make new friends, this retreat is for you.

Venue Highlights

Bali is one of the 17,000 islands that make up the archipelago of Indonesia. Although Indonesia is predominantly Muslim, Bali is unique in that it is mostly Hindu and this difference informs everyday life on the island. You will witness the daily offerings, the smells of jasmine incense and admire the shrines that adorn everything from family compounds to rice paddies.

Our villa is situated on the edges of Ubud, the spiritual hub of Bali. This allows us to access the best of both worlds: close proximity to the shops, cafes and culture of the town while still providing lots of seclusion and privacy.
