Join us for an amazing retreat in Bali, Indonesia

Yoga in Bali
We are so excited about this trip. People often ask us “what is your favorite trip?” In truth, we do not have one, as we LOVE all the places and people where we go. However ….. Bali is special. AND, this Bali trip seems to keep getting better and better, as we gain experience in finding the best places and hotels.
This will be our fifth yoga retreat to the magical land of Bali, Indonesia. The Balinese people truly touched our heart on our visits in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2019. Spirit, artistry, kindness and balanced feminine and masculine energy are infused into every aspect of life there. Bali may well be the yoga retreat capital of the world, and we have found the most awesome way to explore Bali!
We will have three or four trips in one really, with one night in the nice beach town of Sanur, a nice place to land, ground, settle in. Then we have two nights on the nice little island of Nusa Lembangan, a half hour boat ride from Sanur, for snorkeling, beach, yoga and chill time. Then 3 nights in the popular town of Ubud. We finish with 4 nights at the incredible Alassari Retreat Center (room pic at left) in the highlands of central Bali. Check out Tripadvisor’s perfect 5.0 rating. We will receive three healthy meals a day at Alassari.
Theme: Accept and Allow
We will have a theme of “Loving What Is”. A challenge for most of us! many of us resist life and hate this or detest that. We will explore the importance of letting go of resistance to what is, making peace with the world as it is, and assuring that any activism and attempts to change anything come from our clear, calm, conscious center.
Accommodations and Travel Plan
We will be staying in four different retreat centers on this trip, all wonderful. After our first night in Sanur, we take a half hour boat ride to the small island of Lembangan and stay at the comfortable and relaxing Puri Kirana (pic at right) for two nights. We do yoga at the beautiful Serenity Yoga Studio, right on the property. We will also include a private boat snorkel trip to the best snorkel spots and best beaches. Breakfasts and dinners included for these two days.
Our next stop is Ubud, the art, yoga and spiritual center made famous by the book and movie, Eat, Pray, Love. We stay three nights in the yoga center of Ubud, where we will attend a powerful water ritual, visit the Monkey Forest, taste local dishes, and shop for amazing local goodies. We stay at Swasti Eco Cottages with their amazing yoga space (pic at right).
Alassari is where we stay for the last four nights in the Bali highlands, as mentioned above. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, and they also have a beautiful swimming pool, and an incredible, elevated yoga space, overlooking the jungle, for our yoga with Roy and Liz. This part of the trip includes 3 meals a day for the 4 days — delicious healthy food, juices, coffee, tea, etc. Our group will bring a maximum of 16 people, so it will not be a big group, more intimate. The food at Alassari is organic and much of it right out of the garden, and they are meticulous about healthy details.
The retreat was exactly what I needed. A beautiful blend of yoga, spiritual, fellowship, cultural, fun, rest and relaxation. The deep spiritual work changed me. I am in greater touch with me and actually taking steps to shift my life more in line with my authentic self. I appreciate the opportunity to become a Oneness Blessing giver. I receive so much joy from giving blessings. Roy and Liz are the perfect guides!

About the instructors:
Liz Gross: “I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body.” Liz is a gifted sound and vibration healer, and teaches with Roy on retreats. Liz teaches yoga, meditation, Oneness and often does some of the cooking on our retreats. “When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.”
Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
