Join us in Bali for these days of practice and nature


We will stay at an ashtonishing resort, tucked into the verdant jungle, high on the jagged cliffs towering over Southwest Bali’s world-famous waves.

Blessed with private access to the sand and ocean, it’s the place where active soulful pursuits meet Bali’s singular mysticism and warm hospitality. Premium villas, bungalows and loft accommodations—hand-built with reclaimed teak and ironwood, plus Balinese artisan-crafted decor and antiques—are idyllic windows to a magical world where sublime vistas meet fresh and refined cuisine.

Expect beautiful days spent just in front of the ocean, drawing in aromas of incensed air, soaking up golden vistas, and delving into the local culture. 

We will have access to a beautiful yoga shala with Manduka mats, cork blocks and straps provided, in the sights, sounds, and smells of Mother Nature. A unique open-air reclaimed teak yoga temple. Daily classes, surrounded by breathtaking views of waves and lush jungle.

Our own private spaces will be waiting for us: from apartments and bungalows located in a secluded forested valley, with sliding glass doors that open up into  large gardens, to modern villas with ocean and jungle views and private pools, all of them with staff on-site at all times and full housekeeping.

We will explore the surroundings with its incredible nature, take a bath at the Indian Ocean, enjoy the savory balinese food and watch the infinite stars at the Southern hemisphere.
