Iyan and Claude first introduced this workshop in Holland, followed by France and Thailand. Now it is also offered in Bali.

For different reasons, many of us human beings visiting this planet for a short period of time have difficulties to imagine living our lives to its fullest, often because we don’t really know what this actually means.

This retreat/workshop is designed to discover the hidden passions within, to draft a fresh road map and to learn how to reach our most valuable dreams.

Guest Reviews

The entire “Follow Your Dreams” workshop week was like in a fairy tale and exceeded my expectations by far. The workshop, yoga and meditation sessions, the Spa were truly wonderful. The traditional Hindu rituals have touched me deeply and I will carry those wonderful experiences in my heart. I highly recommend a retreat here! It surely was mind changing and retreat opening for me.

Marlene, Austria

Oneworld Retreats has accomplished an unbelievable combination of a great team with beautiful surroundings and perfect accomodations. I did not expect this have such a wellcomended spa staff and lovely spa rooms. The workshop allowed for group interaction but respected the introspection and privacy of the guest. Thank you for giving me the tools to follow my dreams.

Katherine, USA

Follow Your Dreams allowed an environment, focused time and direction for really evaluating the direction of my life with the goals/ dreams that are marking it. The retreat offered supporting people with opportunities to share in a meaningful way. I was impressed by how different the content of discussions were from my day-to-day life. It was an experience that allowed for the best of creature comforts thoughtfully balanced with introspection and conversation. I am so grateful to have had the experience.

Diantha, USA

Follow Your Dreams is an incredible retreat which allows one to reflect on themselves, nourish their bodies whilst also showing experiences and stories with people all around the world. Claude, Iyan, Wayan and the team have done an amazing job in giving each individual the tools they need to truly follow their dreams. Thank you!

Atorina, Australia

I loved the yoga and spa treatments and it was just what I needed. Wayan is an amazing teacher with time for everyone in his yoga classes. Thank you. The staff in all areas of the resort were very attentive and eager to please. Such a nice place to be for a week.

Amanda, Australia

Iyan and Wayan are excellent yoga instructors. The yoga meditation mix was perfect.

Emily, Australia

The Follow Your Dreams retreat is an incredible holistic experience. It is enriching to your soul and to the body. The workshop, meditation and rituals are wonderful tools to help you or being you further in a process of inner-reflection. The yoga session and the spa treatments are really healing for the body. The food is delicious and the whole staff is so kind and attentive. The retreat is really a treat and you come out feeling revived, more balanced and healthy. This is was my second retreat and I’m convinced I’ll come back for more.

Monique, Monique

A unique, immersive, multi-sensory retreat and experience from the yoga session and workshop to the day of silence and purification to Tirta Empul. A truly memorable workshop and stay at ONEWORLD retreats. Thank you also to the entire team for the personal and discreet care and attention to individual preferences and limitation. I hope to “re-treat” sometime. Matur Suksma.

Amit, Canada

I loved everything. Each day was paced with a full program of yoga, workshop and spa treatment. The staff is super friendly, the food was beyond amazing – it shows you how delicious and healthy food can be. The rooms are great and the views are stunning. I met some amazing people here and we are already planning to go to another retreat. Thank you for everything!

Jennifer, Germany

This yoga retreat is located in a marvelous piece of land in Ubud, perfect to let go of the busy things from home. The team is so kind and perfect, that is why you feel very comfortable being here. Delicious food, very professional yoga and meditation lessons, with a big outlook to the local culture. For me it was the right way to get an insight on Balinese offering, temple and rituals.

More Info


Oneworld’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields. And it is probably the only retreat centre in the world with a Palace in its backyard!

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


The meditation and yoga sessions are a soft approach to what may become part of one’s daily life. Through meditation and yoga, people from around the world and all levels of society have reached incredible results in balancing the body, mind and spirit, therefore achieving more focus and being in control over life’s daily events.

The yoga we offer is Hatha and it combines the precision of Iyengar with the dynamism of Ashtanga. Participants are introduced to Pranayama, Asanas, relaxation techniques and rituals. During the contemplative meditation sessions you watch your thoughts, without any intention to either control or repress them. Just simply watch and be aware of each movement of the thought and see them move without you being moved by them.


Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, healthiest and most tasteful meals, infused with love. Your special wishes and dietary requirements are taken care of whenever possible. All your meals are included and most of them are eaten together with the group in the beautiful jungle dining room but sometimes are also served in the privacy of your own balcony or at an outside location. Your personalized itinerary will inform you in detail.


Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapists’ hands. Inclusive is Kumara’s famous 2,5 hours Ayurveda Chakra Dhara Massage. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.


A new retreat happening every week led by experienced retreat leaders from Bali and abroad.
