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.

Morning Qigong

Qigong, which literally means “energy work,” is a 4000 years old system of cultivating health, vitality and longevity. Qigong works with the energy found in our own body and in the surrounding environment to help overcome the imbalances that sap our strength and give rise to disease. In a Qigong class we use breathing exercises, simple body movements and basic meditation techniques to relax the mind, strengthen the muscles and to connect with nature and with our own intuition.

Evening Yoga

Gentle stretching, strengthening and relaxing exercises are combined in these yoga classes to support your internal organs, to calm your mind and to create space for the new. The classes are suited for beginners as well as for more advanced yogis.

Meals

During the program you completely eliminate meat, dairy products, starches and processed food while including plenty of fresh juices and smoothies. In addition you enjoy savory soups, a variety of salads, simple main dishes and even a few desserts.

All your meals are included.
