Details

Day 1

Begin a powerful inner journey on the shores of Bali

With the rhythm of the tide as your gentle, divine soundtrack, you'll arrive in Bali and head to your amazing resort in Candidasa. Here, a sense of pure tranquility is found in every moment, and a remarkable spiritual energy makes every second a chance for introspection, connection and transformation.

Once we're checked into the accommodation, our goal for the evening will be to get to know one another and to settle into the relaxed, present mindset of the retreat. Indulge in a healthy drink and snack before introductions where fun exercises will allow you to express yourself and learn about your new companions. A restorative yoga class will bring your body and mind into harmony with one another before we close out the day with dinner and free time.

Day 2

Open your heart and embrace a sacred cacao ceremony

Good morning! Our first morning in Bali is bound to be an incredible one. We'll begin with morning yoga where you will begin to open your heart and strengthen your mind-body connection. From here, we'll have our first Power Langkah session! A unique art of meditative movement that has its origin in the Indonesian self-defense art Pencak Silat, Langkah will compliment our yoga practice by helping you strive towards inner balance, coordination, physical strength and an overall feeling of well being.

With yoga and Langkah complete, our hearts will be open and it will be time for the cacao ceremony. During the ceremony, you will be guided to look inwards and experience a strengthening of your emotions. A feeling of inner enlightenment will come over you as the ceremony reaches its end. This will be followed up with free time to allow you to relax and reflect on the ceremony before yin yoga and dinner.

Day 3

Learn to let go with yoga and breathwork

The list of lessons that yoga can teach is endless, but perhaps the most important thing that yoga can guide us towards is forgiveness and the ability to let go. That will be our exact goal for today! We'll begin with a morning yoga session that will introduce you to the idea of letting go and just how empowering it can be. From here, another Power Langkah session and some free time will help you build confidence before an evening session of yoga and breathwork. Here, you will be able to breathe out negativity and find a new, more positive center.

Day 4

Connect with a feeling of sheer joy and celebrate life

Today serves as an opportunity to celebrate the beauty of life. A morning yoga session centered on joy will set the tone for the day before a sound healing session. Then, we will embark on a day trip to Karangasem to see Lempuyang Temple and Virgin Beach. Two of Bali's most scenic and spiritually powerful gems, both spots will underscore just how exciting and special this unique universe of ours is. We'll end our excursion with sunset yoga on the beach, basking in the beauty of Bali and feeling a fulfilling connection with our surroundings.

Day 5

Find complete empowerment through yoga, Power Langkah, and a Kundalini Awakening

Our wellness journey continues today. Our first activity of the day, morning yoga, will be focused on empowering the body and mind and helping you connect with the power that lays dormant within you. As the morning comes to a close, Power Langkah will allow you to further develop those strengths. After an afternoon of free time, we'll come together for a Kundalini Awakening where Jeanne will guide you through a profound and transformative experience of accessing the divine feminine energy of kundalini, allowing you to blossom into a state of bliss and harmony.

Day 6

Build balance and peace on our last full day in Bali

On the last full day of our retreat, we'll be focusing on finding a state of balance. Yoga and Power Langkah will help facilitate this in the morning while free time will let you develop feelings of balance in a more personal way in the afternoon. For lunch, we'll prepare our own meals with a Balinese cooking class, learning new recipes and discovering ways to incorporate the magic of Bali into our daily lives after returning home. The day will begin to come to a close with a yoga and inner balance session before a final dinner as the sun sets over the ocean.

Day 7

Head home after a transformative, impactful trip to Candidasa

The end of our trip is finally here. After a week of powerful experiences and transformative epiphanies, we'll say goodbye to our seaside retreat and head home. Thanks so much for joining us, and we hope you can continue your wellness journey after arriving home!
