A magical island
Ahh Bali… ‘the island of the Gods´ or ‘the island of a thousand temples´… what could be a better place to connect with body, mind and soul, practicing yoga and meditation while nurturing the body with healthy juices and raw food? Bali’s pristine beaches, holy mountains, jungle fringed river valleys and endless rolling rice paddies set the perfect conditions while the sounds of mystical ceremonies from local Balinese village temples add to the all-round magical ambiance of this tiny Indonesian Hindu island.
Hosting yoga retreats in a private luxury villa
Bali has been given many names over the years and attracted many searchers, artists and wanderers from all over the planet, seeking inspiration, beauty, tranquility and answers to questions that roam in the soul. The island has become a popular destination for people wanting to practice yoga and meditation on their holiday and therefore, many spiritual retreat centers have opened their doors in the years gone by. In addition to this, what could be more perfect than hosting intimate, custom designed yoga retreats in the exclusive setting of a private luxury villa? It truly is something different and it makes a great alternative to those large scale- and often very expensive retreat centers.
By renting a private luxury villa as a venue for holding yoga retreats, teachers can create a unique experience for their yoga and yogini students. A retreat designed to the ideas of the teachers in perfect alignment with the needs and wishes of students. Also, it is quite easy and profitable to organize all this, without the hassle of being involved in a large company. Bali has some amazing luxury villas with outstanding yoga practice pavilions on-site, giving a great kick-start to private and exclusive yoga events organized for selective groups of students with a maximum of twenty in the largest villa.
