THE PLACE

The twelve bedroom Holistic retreat is located 1.5 km from the heart of Ubud in Bali. Bordered to the west by a small creek, the eco-friendly retreat is surrounded by jungle and rice fields. The retreat centre offers 2 swimming pools, dining room, Spa and a 100 sq. meter Yoga studio open to nature. Each room is air conditioned, has its own terrace with garden, mini-bar and shower. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests' ultimate serenity, everyone above the age of 14 is welcome at the retreat.

THE YOGA

During this retreat Marije Paternotte teaches Kripalu Yoga.
The word “Kripalu” means “compassion”. The focus of Kripalu Yoga is on developing non-judgmental awareness or so-called witness consciousness. This is the ability to observe ourselves from an outside perspective and witness what we are thinking, feeling or saying without judging it. Noticing what is happening, but not labeling it as “good” or “bad”. Classes begin with meditation, warm-up movements and breath awareness to prepare you for yoga postures. The heart of each class is a sequence of postures that stretch, strenghten and balance your body. Each class ends with deep relaxation.
Classes can range from gentle to vigorous, depending on the time of day and the students’ level of experience.

THE MEALS

Healthy, organic meals are provided, which are prepared by our well trained chefs. All dietary requirements are catered for.

SPA TREATMENTS

During your retreat you will enjoy a Spa Mandi Treatment. This 17th century Javanese royal treatment will make you feel on top of the world! Mandi lulur is the luxurious pre-wedding ritual of Indonesian women. This treatment moisturizes and restores the natural PH balance of your skin. It begins with a traditional body massage, followed by a body scrub to exfoliate dead cells using a mixture of turmeric, sandalwood and rice powder. Then, yoghurt is applied to refresh and open the pores of your skin. The treatment ends with a fragrant blossom bath.
