One of the many retreats we love at Mindful Balance Retreats is our retreat to Bali. Bali, an island in the Indonesian archipelago, is sometimes referred to as the Island of the Gods. The island comes by the moniker honestly. The stunning landscape and deep spirituality of its people set it apart. It's a go-to destination for people trying to satisfy their wanderlust and need for self-reflection.
Go to Bali to heal your body and soul
Our retreat in Bali focuses on healing and restoration. Every day begins with a series of mindfulness practices and opportunities for self-reflection. If you've been having trouble carving out the time to take care of yourself, this trip is an incredible opportunity to jumpstart healthy habits. Take some time to practice asana, meditate, or journal before you set out on the day's adventures.
Every afternoon, we have a restorative yoga practice with aromatherapy and healing touch. Our Bali retreat also includes a massage to give you the maximum healing benefit of all these practices. Feel your stress melt away as you tend to your body and mind.
The lush volcanic landscape provides plenty of healthy foods to nurture your physical body. We start off every day on the right foot with a nourishing organic breakfast. An on-site restaurant offers organic fare, and you'll have the chance to do a 1-day juice cleanse if you wish.
Take in the sights
Bali is known for its natural beauty and affordability compared to other island destinations. During our retreat, we stay at the stunning Desa Seni eco-village, where you'll have access to on-site-yoga (of course!), a saltwater pool, a sun deck, and a spa. The antique wooden houses of Desa Seni are arranged in the style of a traditional Indonesian village.
We are staying in an incredible place, but you'll also have the chance to visit sacred Balinese temples and well as wander around the streets of Ubud, where food, shopping and monkeys are abundant.
Most of us struggle to find the time for introspection every day. There's so much noise competing for our attention. For this reason, we devote one day of our retreat to silence. In Bali, you can create the space that you need to work toward your wellness goals. Dedicated time to practice the niyama, svadhyaya (self-reflection), is an opportunity you're rarely afforded in class, but on this retreat, it's a major focus.
Come home refreshed
Taking time away from your regular routine can put you on a path to healing. You'll not only feel better, but there's a good chance that you'll be more productive after doing some inner work on the Island of the Gods. When you return from Bali, you'll carry the fruits of deep and introspective practice into your life.
