maitri yoga retreat

This retreat is designed to melt the edges and give you the space to relax.  
Supported by the daily practises of asana to stretch and bring flexibility into the body, combined with breathwork to help us unwind and let go of anxiety and stress… and some quiet time so we can start to declutter the mind and re-find a sense of peace.

Giving ourselves this opportunity to reset and be nourished by the freshly home cooked delights from our inhouse chef and to rest and restore in the lush garden and its beautiful surrounds, right near the sea, in a quiet part of Bali. We look after you, so you can look after yourself.


Join us from May 4th to 9th, 2020
