maitri yoga retreat
Taking time to give back to ourselves is considered a luxury in today’s hectic and fast paced world. Sometimes it feels great to make time to feed the body, mind and spirit. This yoga retreat will do just that. Set amongst paddy fields and surrounded by nature in a beautiful luxury villa in rural Bali, we will take this time to recharge and restore.
The intention is to create the space for us to open and nourish ourselves so every detail from arrival to departure is taken care of, allowing connection and clarity.
