- Daily Yoga Classes That Energize the Body and Mind: Suitable for all levels, our daily Vinyasa Flow classes are a fluid sequencing of postures linked with the breath. Classes are tailored to individual needs so they are challenging, yet not overwhelming and allow you to progress at your own pace. Each day of the retreat you will learn 2 complete asana flow sequences that balance the emphasis on alignment, flow and mindfulness.
- Transformative Workshops to Awaken New Insights and Ideas: In these heart-to-heart sessions, you will receive next-level personal growth tools, learn about the yogic lifestyle, receive guidance for your personal practice and discover ways to implement healthy and balanced routines into your daily life. We will also introduce and demystify some of the secret practices of Yoga that truly transform lives: Yoga Nidra, working with Chakras, Ayurveda, and discuss Yogic Philosophy. We address topics like healthy diet and eating patterns, daily rituals that promote inner peace, communication patterns that foster love and understanding, and psychological attitudes that nurture self-healing.
- A Complete Step-by-Step Meditation Technique to Find Inner Peace and Enhance Mindfulness: Learning and practicing the noble art of silent meditation is an essential life skill. If you are new to meditation, or not exactly sure how to meditate, you will be introduced to powerful breath control (pranayama) techniques that will help you master your mind. These ancient techniques reduce stress, promote mental clarity, heal and prevent psycho-somatic disease. You will learn how to breathe, how to sit, what to focus on and learn how to meditate properly to derive the endless benefits of meditation you’ve been hearing about. By the end of your retreat, you will finally have all the tools you need to confidently practice meditation on your own. If you are a seasoned meditator, these sessions are perfect for slowing down, learning new techniques, relaxing and reconnecting with yourself.

Menu/CuisineAll yoga retreat packages include 2 meals per day – breakfast and dinner – at our in-house vegan restaurant Amrita.
Through conscious, ethical and humane choices we serve food that is good for you, good for our planet and good for all of its creatures. Following the yogic principle of ahimsa (non-violence), a vegan diet contains no animal products. Our menu is completely free of meat, dairy and eggs – an ideal yogic diet that supports your practices.
A Light Breakfast after the morning class consists of seasonal fresh fruits with scrumptious granola and freshly made coconut milk to keep the body and mind light, clear and full of energy. Dinner is a set menu of various healthy, international dishes, including soup, salad, main course, and desert.
The retreat is purposefully designed to allow you to enjoy and sample amazing vegan cuisine while still having the flexibility to eat whatever you wish during lunch. For lunch, you have the option to order off the vegan a la carte menu or, if you choose to take the free shuttle into Ubud in the afternoon, you can enjoy any of the tasty and sumptuous restaurants that Ubud has to offer – including its many omnivore options.
*Meals are largely gluten-free, however we use soya sauce in many dishes. We are also able to accommodate for low-gluten diets and for some allergies. Yet, as the meals are set for the entire group we cannot guarantee a completely gluten-free, raw, or sugar-free diet.
