Feel the urge to escape ?

Feel like you need an escape from your daily stuff? For real? Feel like it’s time to quench your thirst to be wild and free ? Stepping back from the day-to-day helps us create an essential space to view our life path from a new and fresh perspective. An opportunity to cultivate our inner clarity and return stronger and wiser. 

Join us this New Year’s for a weeklong conscious immersion in the magical beauty of Bali. We will practice yoga, play, work, breathe, sweat, celebrate, laugh, exchange… chill and deeply relax. We will set our intention to unburden ourselves from all the unnecessary information and recharge our energetic resources to realize our dreams and desires for the upcoming year. 

Sheltered in a secret bay on the wild West coast of the paradisiac island of Gods, in a luxurious, peaceful sanctuary facing the ocean, we will take the time to reconnect to Nature and the Elements. 


Our daily schedule will include a subtle alchemy of fluid and dynamic Vinyasa yoga, deeply restorative Yin Yoga, Pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. We will practice gather in our simple and beautiful open-air yoga shala, facing the ocean. We will have plenty of free time to explore the majestic landscapes of rice fields, deserted beaches, coconut groves, jungles, mountains and volcanoes, discover the rich Balinese culture, surf the renown nearby Balian Beach wave… or simply read by the pool or pamper ourselves with self-love, massages and farniente at the beach. 

The yoga...

Vinyasa Yoga is a creative approach to yoga asana, incorporating fluid and dynamic movements and is usually accompanied by music. Special attention is placed on combining our breath with our movement. This yoga style is suitable for all levels and helps both body and mind release toxins.

In restorative yoga, the focus is on moving slowly and with complete awareness. Postures are held for a longer period of time. This has therapeutic effects on the body as we release deep tissue trauma, and on the mind as we learn to remain mindful and aware. Each session creates a calm and quiet space, allowing us to penetrate into the depths of our consciousness to find inner peace and a profound meditative state.


We will be accommodated at family run Gajah Mina resort, a small house in a great location. With only a dozen villas in a huge tropical garden of two hectares, it overlooks its own private beach carved into the volcanic rock. The large private swimming pool is built around the organic shape of a rice terrace. Each villa has been designed for privacy and comfort, combining the traditional features of the Balinese cultural environment. Larger villas are also available if you want to participate in the retreat with your children, feel free to contact us for more information. 

Gajah Mina has his own Spa, perched on a headland overlooking the surf spot of Balian and the deserted Mejan Beach. You’ll have the possibility to indulge yourself with a scented oil Balinese massage, a deeply relaxing aromatic flower bath or a whole range of other blissful spa treatments. To make sure that your experience in Bali will be deliciously nurturing for your body and soul, we offer you a welcome massage as part of your retreat package!
