These classic maitri yoga retreats take place twice a year in Bali at the beautiful Silversand Villa at Kedungu Beach, just a few minutes drive from famous temple Tanah Lot. For 5 days in November and May we gather together to practise, rest, eat clean and connect.
We focus on a holistic approach to yoga so we combine asana (postures) to move the body releasing tension, with breathing techniques to regulate the emotional body and mantra chanting to calm and focus the mind. We are situated right near the beautiful Tabanan beach so mindful walks (particularly stunning at sunset) to just take time to be by the ocean is so healing. These retreats are very relaxed. We are flexible and adaptable depending on the needs of the group and individuals.

A twice daily hatha yoga practice
Breathing classes to balance and calm the emotional body
Mantra and meditation practise to free the mind
Three in-villa massages
Shared ensuite, air-conditioned bedrooms – all linen, towels and toiletries provided
