Testimonial: “This trip to Bali had it all – meditation, mindfulness and morning yoga practice in a magnificent mountain setting. Absolutely amazing accommodation. Fabulous fresh organic food. Warm sun and wonderful company. Spectacular scenic sights including volcanoes, waterfalls, temples and rice paddies. Definitely a trip to be recommended.” Carol

Our intention for this retreat is to provide an oasis for you, a space in your life where you can fully relax and connect to yourself and restore your internal resources.  Apart from

  • guided morning meditations
  • yoga classes
  • afternoon healing yoga-nidra / deep relaxations

You will also have plenty of free time during the day for a massage or a spa treatment. Swim in the sea or simply rest by the seawater swimming pool.  The mountain retreat has its own local organic vegi gardens,  where the produce is grown and delicious fresh meals will be prepared for you 3 times a day, including refreshing afternoon tea.

FIRST TWO NIGHTS IN UBUD

After arriving in Denpasar we will spend two nights in luxurious Om Ham Retreat. Just a few minutes out of Ubud, in a peaceful area overlooking the rice fields.

We will have time to visit Ubud and local markets as well as rice terraces. On our way to our mountain retreat North of Bali we will have buffet lunch overlooking volcanoes Batur and Agung.

FIVE NIGHTS AT A MOUTAIN RETREAT

Gaia-Oasis Retreat is located in Tejakula, in the northern part of Bali, away from the busyness of all the tourism. Just 3,5 hours away from the main international airport Denpasar and two hours from Ubud.  The ideal location to hide away and to be nurtured by the lush greenery of the Balinese nature and to be bathed by the sea.

The Gaia- Oasis Retreat has two resorts one in the mountains and one by the sea, offering the best of both of the worlds.

In Bali, mountains symbolize the humanity’s relationship with creation. Abasan – the mountain retreat represents Gaia’s spiritual core and is the place where our vision was born and where our retreat will be held. Here, the earth elements of nature unite with the vitality of rural Bali. It creates an ideal environment where you can reconnect and rejuvenate on all the levels of your being.

There is a free ten minute shuttle that connects both locations.

Our morning and evening practices will be in the mountains, where is it peaceful and secluded, while you can spend your free time during the day soaking up the sun by the sea.

Testimonials:

“I highly recommend you consider going on the Bali yoga retreat. It is a very very special experience and Monika has put together a package with every detail taken care of so you can relax from the moment you arrive at the departure lounge. Beautiful accommodation, food, garden, massage, yoga and people. Go! Enjoy!”Marg

“Whenever I read  testimonials, I often see the phrase ” exceeded expectations’  and this is the comment that accurately sums up my experience of the yoga retreat on Bali. It was a wonderful trip and ticked so many boxes. I especially enjoyed the settings for our daily yoga and also the fact that we had our very own yoga teachers; this added a special and important aspect to my yoga practice.
Jane and I are keen to go again next year and would be grateful to be added to the list. Thanks again for your organisational skills and care and attention during the trip.” – Mike
