Reset your spirit with restorative yoga in Bali

Zen: a state of calm attentiveness in which one's actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort.

You will find this zen state naturally occurs for you in magical Bali where you will navigate your days with a sense of ease and peace.  Imagining waking each morning to the sensations of calm and contentment as you sip your tea on the sun filled veranda. Not a care in the world or a trouble on your mind, you learn what it feels like to experience each moment as it comes and instinctively know how to pilot your life without the need for stress or struggle.

Welcome to one-of-a-kind Bali: a place where gratitude is the overwhelming attitude, and people are as much a part of the ecosystem as the stunning scenery that surrounds them. A greeting, a smile, a gesture. You will instantly know that each is performed with the most genuine affection in a manner that is contagious. The sense of calming peace and complete unity that abounds is like none you have ever experienced.

This magical retreat combines cultural immersion, unbelievable scenery, exploration, play time, soul satiating relaxation, self-inquiry, meditation, and a yoga practice that is for EVERYbody. We will start our mornings with a group vinyasa class that is suitable for all levels, spend the day sharing adventures on the enchanting island that is Bali, and then watch the sun sink below the horizon together as we relish in a juicy restorative class that finishes with meditation or yoga nidra. There is something for everyone on this once in a life time adventure that is sure to send you home with a heightened sense of self awareness and ultimate harmony.

What our guests are saying

"What an incredible experience! Drishti Journeys did an incredible job at the execution and planning of the Bali Retreat. From being pickup up at the airport to enjoying excursions across the island to being wined and dined at fabulous restaurants in Bali, this was one of the most incredible trips of my lifetime. Reinier, the host did an unbelievable job executing this trip and thinking of every little detail to ensure everyone was happy and comfortable. For me, this is important because of my dietary restrictions. I never had a problem... once. The itinerary was thoughtfully planned out to incorporate the perfect amount of the Balinese culture, outdoor activities, cuisine, downtime, and yoga/meditation. Emily, lead us through yoga and meditation. She is an incredible instructor and these were the best yoga classes that I have taken. She made everyone feel comfortable, beautiful in our own skin and encouraged us to be present in every moment throughout the journey.
If anyone is considering a Yoga Retreat, look no further... Drishti Journeys is an obvious choice. My positive experience was in big part due to the leaders of this program. I will be attending more retreats! Thank you for giving me this experience. I knew on the trip that "Bali is/was working..." and it continues to work in my favor through every new day. Namaste!"
