Developing Your Yoga Practice

This 6 day/5 night retreat brings together two of our islands most inspiring yoga teachers: Wayan, a local Balinese, and Janet, an expat from Canada who relocated here in 2010. Bringing together their shared knowledge, love and perspectives on yoga, meditation, mindful living and local culture, this retreat offers a perfect blend of Eastern and Western insights and practices.

Join them for an unforgettable week to nurture, restore and renew your connection to nature, to yourself, and to your body, mind and spirit. Learn how the ancient yoga practices and traditional Balinese customs can help bring balance and clarity to your own life. With two daily yoga classes, spa treatments and delicious healthy food, you'll leave this retreat physically and mentally stronger, thoroughly rested, and with an abundance of energy, clarity and knowledge on how to sustain a more healthy yogic lifestyle.

ONEWORLD retreats at Kumara


The fourteen bedroom holistic retreat is located 1.5 km from the heart of Ubud in Bali. Bordered by a small creek to the west, the eco-friendly retreat is surrounded by jungle and rice fields. The retreat centre offers two swimming pools, dining room, spa and 125 square meter yoga studio open to nature.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace, mini-bar and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests' ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years.

Yoga and Meditation

Blending her studies in Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara, and Restorative, Janet draws on these styles to offer students unique classes weaving together the best of each tradition. Janet’s emphasis is to support each student in developing a safe yoga practice that is fine-tuned to their level. With this in mind, each student will receive hands-on adjustments, appropriate pose modifications and personalized suggestions of a practice they take away with them.

This retreat offers Vinyasa Yoga in the mornings and Restorative Yoga in the evening, and there is time to further your knowledge and experience with meditation and chanting during these sessions.

The retreat is open for all levels of experience, yet ideally you have already some experience in yoga.


All your meals are included and most are served at the resort.

Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, most tasteful and healthy meals. From our "table d'hôte" you may choose to eat vegetarian or non vegetarian meals. Just like at a friend's place, there are no menus, yet we make sure to know what you like and dislike!

Meals are served either in the jungle dining room or in the privacy of your own balcony table.


Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapists' hands.
Inclusive are a Relaxing Massage OR Facial treatment and Kumara's famous 2,5 hours Ayurvedic Chakra Dhara Massage. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.

Guest Testimonials

This was a yoga retreat unlike others I have done but exactly what I was looking for and what was promised. The knowledge of our teacher was very diverse and far-reaching. The quality and expertise at the spa was amazing and the general atmosphere of the resort was perfect. I'm so glad I took my friend's recommendation and visited.
