“A Boost of Energy” yoga in the morning was intense, but right for bed time. Everything was just right! Perfect!

A retreat like no other! My second time around and Oneworld Reterats never disappoint. After one week at the retreat, I feel spiritually rejuvenated from the amazing spa treatments, yoga practice and retreat activities. There are no words to explain how wonderful this little piece of heaven is. Thank you and I look forward to visiting again.

The entire staff at Oneworld Retreats embraces each member of the retreats like family for the week. Karina’s extensive yoga background was invaluable in deepening our yoga and meditation practice. All of the Balinese rituals were so very magical and truly a highlight of the entire retreat. Thank you for a truly wonderful retreat! It was so nice we had the flexibility in our schedule due to the rain. I will definitely look into future retreats, as well as recommend to friends.

An amazing yogic journey alongside cultural richness of Bali. I feel very blessed to have experienced so many sacred Balinese ceremonies. Karina is so knowledgable, she incorporates several different yoga styles with love. The local staff team were incredible.

Karina is a wonderful teacher. She builds with tact, starting with the fundamentals and working your body up. I was doing poses I never had the courage to try before! She is truly a gift to the yoga community.

It was an awesome experience. I enjoyed the time so much – I love the quiet of this place, the pleasure that I have to come to Bali for. Thank you for having me.

A wonderfully revitalizing experience, a chance to meet like-minded women from across the globe, exchange life experience and ideas. We shared moving experience and made bounds that may last for a long time. Recommend it highly!

A Life of Balance – in Portugal

Ever been to beautiful Portugal? When Claude and Iyan first visited in 2017, they soon fell in love with its people, the pristine nature and the food and wine scene. It was clear that Portugal was the perfect location for a Oneworld retreat. Martine and Wayan then agreed to participate in the creation of the upcoming week-long journey in southern Portugal.
