Bali Retreat 2017

HellaYoga Bali Retreat December 2017

I am so excited to announce the 3rd year of the HellaYoga Bali Retreat. This year it will take place from December 3rd – 10th, 2017. I feel beyond blessed to be able to do what I love and to share it with you. If you know me personally, you know how much LOVE and GRATITUDE I feel for this tropical island.

Over the past few years I have connected with Balinese people as well as travelers while visiting this beautiful and sacred place. I have learned so much about their culture, but yet again, there is so much more to learn. However, I feel extremely fortunate that I have met Balinese people who have shared their homes and culture with me. And furthermore, that they opened their hearts to trust me. I travel to Bali whenever I get time off as my heart calls it home. I feel complete. I feel love. I built a community and extended my family on the Island of Gods, Bali.

The idea of creating this Yoga Retreat to Bali started with a dream and a passion to help others. It is a beautiful collaboration with local businesses, small villages, mentors and the help of the community. Our vision is to make this retreat available for everyone! Bali holds such a special part in my heart and I can’t wait to share it with you.

We carefully put together this itinerary to show you what Bali has to offer through the eyes of a local.  We will take you around the Island of the Gods, Bali, to experience the beautiful villages, lush forests, tropical beaches, mystic temples, traditional Balinese ceremonies and much more. We work closely with the villages we are visiting, the places we are staying as well as tour buses we are using. My partner in Bali, her name is Yoann, will be with us during the entire retreat. She is by far the BEST tour guide you can ask for and will share her wealth of knowledge about the culture, life and history with you. Yoann will make certain that everything is running smoothly prior to our arrival. We facilitated our first retreat in December 2015 which was a great success. Our goal is to show you Bali the Balinese way. With the help of this Yoga Retreat you are helping a Balinese village to support themselves.
