Balinese offering “The Island of the Gods.” Only the small island of Bali, which is filled with a spiritual atmosphere, could earn such a title. Temples are delicately placed in the midst of rice paddies, on the sides of volcanoes, and near the shorelines. Many Balinese make ritual offerings to the local spirits and gods every day. These bundles of rice and flowers are seen in homes, in businesses, and in the street. The island is treated as a sacred place, and this respect is reciprocated by the spirits who protect and enchant the island. This magic-filled landscape has become, understandably, a true paradise for yoga retreats, meditation workshops, detox cleanses, and more. When you choose to go on retreat in Bali, you must prepare for the unexpected: you never know what magic you might encounter!

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

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. 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.
