Vivienne O’Brien  |  Retreat Leader

In 1990, Vivienne decided to take a year off to travel through Asia. On a small island in Thailand, she was introduced to yoga. For one week, rising early every morning, she practiced yoga. Instantly she felt its profound impact and by the end of the week intuitively knew that yoga would become a large part of her life. Read more about Vivienne O’Brien

A perfect setting to rest and recharge. The attention to detail is amazing and helps to make this a deeply relaxing + spiritual experience. Everything is taken care of – Thank you to all the lovely staff at Kumara. I sincerely hope to be back very soon! I will miss the gentle sounds of the forest, the lush green and the wonderful warmth! Namaste, Fran.

It was a great week of Yoga at a retreat in a tropical rainforest overlooking the rice fields in Ubud. I liked the spiritual rituals. Spa was awesome, food devine. True rejuvenation to body and soul. Thank you Vivienne and the team!!!! P.S. First night dessert in the mansion over the Balinese Customs was very special!

Inna, Australia

We both thoughly enjoyed our” pure yoga” retreat experience at Kumara Sakti. Thank you to all the fabulous, friendly, gracious staff who looked after us so well answered on many questions, nourished us with sensational meals, massage and pampered us at the spa with their with their beautiful energies and hands. Kumara Sakti resort is a beautiful place. we loved being on our balcony, able to just sit and rest, surrounded by lush and impressive gardens and views. A definite high light was the early morning trek up to Batur volcano area watch the sun come up. Doing our morning yoga here on the balcony/ terrace was magical, as was listening to Wayan chant a beautiful, moving prayer. Terima kasih banyak.

If you want a total escape from your busy, stressful life, and want to indulge your self in your love yoga, and develop a greater understanding of it, then this retreat is for you. You will also experience the real Bali. The spiritual, special area of ubud and the hills. enjoy relaxing spa treatments, lovely walks through rice field, bike rides and visits to ancient villages. A yoga sessions at sunrise looking out over the volcano is wondrous. The food is truly wonderful too. But most of all you get plenty of free time!

Cara, Australia

Bliss…. I loved the food, not having to decide from a menu, beautifully presented + delicious. Balinese people are excellent at service. The retreat has idyllic views across a river to jungle/ nice paddies seen from our room, the yoga studio and the pool.

Kath, Australia

The accommodation and Kumara are faultless and pride in themselves an ideal “retreat” from the world outside. Vivienne is a masterful teacher who will unquestionably guide any persons yoga practice, irrespective of what discipline you have previously followed.

Ragni, Australia

1. Great initiation to yoga from a very competent and experienced teacher in a relaxing & breath taking. beautiful setting supported by genuinely friendly balinese staff. 2. Activities are designed to give everyone a possibility to discover the full beauty of bali first hand. 3. Spiritual experience & relaxation was best I have had thus far, the right balance to take away whatever one desires.
