      Bliss Body

    I was looking for juice fasting program in Bali and Bliss Body retreats were offering exactly what I wanted. I had 3 days of fasting and the rest we were eating only raw food. Must admit that guides are real professionals and gave me lots of help and support during my stay. Fasting was not so easy to do but I liked the juices they were making and actually I didn't even feel hungry. I have never tried eating raw food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This retreat opened my eyes about food and nutrition in general. It was so delicious that I immediately forgot about my favourite pasta! Thanks to Vlada who was giving her seminar about nutrition, it was very simple and very progressive for me. On the last day I couldn't believe my eyes, I was shining! Never felt to strong and so inspired before. What to say big thanks to Olha who told me so many interesting things about Bali and it's traditions! I loved our sunrise yoga practice and evening breathing with meditation it made me feel very calm and rejuvenating. To be honest I got much more then just fasting. It was like a perfect journey from a movie with all those balinese secret place where we did water cleansing, Vlada made it just as a magic. I will definitely come back to this Island and to Bliss body retreat for another vital and beautiful journey. Thank you again for making my vacation simply the best. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g297701-d10379257-r440239000-Bliss_Body_Retreat-Ubud_Bali.html#

      7 day Detox and Yoga Retreat

    I would like to share my amazing experience of Detox and Yoga retreat in May. I had a very great time in Bali, it was even better than I hoped for. The program was well-designed and adjustable for such beginners in yoga like me. Firstly, I was a bit afraid that we will eat only raw food and drink juices as I have never ever tried to follow such a diet. But, I have realized that you can make a lot of various delicious meals even not to cook them. With the help of our amazing Retreat guide Vlada and useful tips from here my 7 days past so quickly, but truly amazing. The whole week was total relaxation and peacefulness. I have not only spent really good time but also was taught how to implement a piece of retreat in my daily life. That was really helpful. A Big Thank you to Vlada. I am pretty sure it was my perfect choice of the Yoga retreat and I would highly recommend it to everyone who want to have the perfect and healthy holiday.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
