Come Home to Bali - Yoga retreat

Take six days of immersion in yoga, breath, nature and Bali.

A chance to reset your default settings to Blissfulness.

When we can clear away the mental clutter and general busy-ness, our mind returns to its true nature. That’s when “the bliss comes to visit”. Such experiences are often an epiphany. They allow us to see a new perspective on life and later we recall them and draw on them for strength and guidance.

We will use the tried and tested methods of yoga practice, natural beauty, and nurturing to get in touch with our essentially blissful and peaceful selves. During these six days you will be invited to explore ways to release the things that prevent you from visiting your bliss. This journey will be infused with serene surroundings and lessons in harmonious living from our Balinese hosts.

The memory of this wonderful experience in Ubud will stay with you as a source of inspiration for years to come.

Your Retreat Leader

Jim Harrington
My involvement and fascination with yoga began with my first visit to the south of India in 1987 at the very impressionable age of 21. I met Saddhus who had devoted their lives to the spiritual quest and ordinary people that acknowledged the divine in each other with every greeting. In Sri Lanka, by chance, I joined thousands of pilgrims pressed shoulder to shoulder at the summit of a holy mountain at sunrise. Read more about Jim

ONEWORLD retreats at Kumara

Resort

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

The Yoga practices will involve a combination of dynamic flowing sequences, alignment focus and exploratory yoga "play". It will always lead us to a serene, meditative seat and a deep yoga Nidra rest. Jim has many years of experience as a teacher and is very adept at guiding a multi level group.

Whatever your level of yoga experience, you will probably feel that the class was designed just for you and their needs on that day. He believes that yoga is suitable for anyone and that there is an optimal way to practice yoga that suits any individual’s physical or mental condition. Yoga is traditionally a method for the removal of obstacles and hindrances to fully experiencing the joy of life. The yoga practice may be intense but always with a sense of joy and fun.

Meals

Most are included and sserved 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.

Spa

Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapists' hands.
Inclusive is a 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.

Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.
