Course description

During this yoga retreat you\'ll have daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.* Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students\' needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention to deeply explore their practice. Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for us to use if the weather is agreeable. Guests will not only enjoy the grounds of the villa, the outdoor areas including a lovely pool, patio and lounges, but the retreat includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites. A guided day in and around Ubud will lead guests through an introduction to this area. We\'ll visit a spice plantation, get to participate in a Balinese healing and fire ritual, and learn Balinese cooking during our cuisine lesson. There will be time in nature, on the beaches, and also we\'ll get to visit the Indonesian weavers of our \"Give Back\" Partner in Bali and learn more about the amazing textiles of the area.The final full day entails a trip to the luxurious Four Seasons where we\'ll delve deeper into Bali\'s serene beauty and tradition by spending a day in the life of a local farmer - from a private guided walk through rice fields and jungle paths, followed by a picnic breakfast in a rice field pavilion, known as a bale, then we help local farmers plant rice with traditional methods. Next we venture to the spa villa close to the banks of the river for a traditional bathing ritual, scrub and massage. What a way to end the week - in pure relaxation!

About the place

Bali is an island and the smallest province of Indonesia, and includes a few smaller neighboring islands. It is located between Java to the west and Lombok to the east, and its capital Denpasar is at the southern part of the island. Bali’s central mountains include several peaks over 3,000 meters in elevation. The highest is Mount Agung (3,031 m), known as the “mother mountain” which is an active volcano. South of the mountains is a broad, steadily descending area where most of Bali’s large rice crop is grown. Our time in Bali will be split between two locations so guests can experience the best of what this lovely land has to offer! We will start at a seaside village away from the hustle and bustle and really settle in to this week alongside the ocean! We\'ll have half of the week with beach accommodations and a relaxing way to ease into our holiday. We will be taken care of by an award-winning boutique hotel family that will host us at both locations in Bali. The first is sumptuous yet unassuming - an ocean-front retreat that lies in the shade of Mount Agung, held up as sacred by Balians, and surrounded by opulent coconut groves. Mid-way through the week we\'ll head into Bali\'s most famous town of Ubud. We\'ll be hosted in luxury accommodations - a tranquil and secluded hillside retreat that sits high up on the edge of the rich green Ayung River valley in Bali\'s central foothills, in the traditional Balinese hill village of Payangan. Both hotels offer award-winning design accommodations and even one of the world\'s \"Top 50 Pools in the World\".

Food

Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily either hosted at our hotel or out and about in town. Some even come served on a banana leaf! The cuisine is simple, delicious and Balinesian, using fresh ingredients from local markets. We will take our tastebuds further by exploring Indonesian cuisine in a cooking class where we\'ll be accompanied by our chef to a morning food market where we\'ll bring fresh ingredients back to the hotel and have a master cooking class learn a bit of how to bring the flavors of Bali back home with us!

    “I know all of us on that retreat are huge Erin fans and can’t sing the EAT.PRAY.MOVE praises loud enough. It is the most incredible way to travel. Erin has every detailed covered and it takes the stress out of international travel. I know I am getting an amazing travel experience at an incredible value. The accommodations are always world-class and the activities and adventures always provide cultural immersion with local experiences. ” From Eat, Pray Move Testimonial Page

    " Wonderful and transformative experience"
    “I don’t know how Erin does it, but she manages to find the most beautiful and charming off-the-beaten-track places to stay...I know she puts a lot of time, effort and love into it to make each retreat so special. Bali was one more magic place recently added to her schedule and how wonderful it was! I’ve lost track of how many retreats I’ve gone to since Erin started EPM, but I think at least a dozen, so I consider myself a good judge of what will be an incredible experience. One of the unique occurrences we had in Bali was that we stayed at 2 boutique hotels, at 2 different locations. The first half was at a beautiful, peaceful location near Manggis, then we moved on to the very happening Ubud. We got to experience boating, swimming at beach and pool, learning to Batik, eating at top rated restaurants, and even cooked our own meal after going to the local market, and much, much more. It was a truly wonderful week filled with yoga, unique day trips, cooking school, and areas of local interest. I would highly recommend this retreat as well as all the others!” - FROM Eat Pray Move Testimonials page

    "Thank you Erin and EAT.PRAY.MOVE for a memorable experience! ”"
    “What a treat it was to experience France for the first time with EAT.PRAY.MOVE. Erin was a wonderful host who led thoughtful, challenging, and accessible classes in addition to daily excursions that provided a view of the Provençal region from many different angles. The accommodations and landscapes were breathtaking and I couldn’t ask for a better group to share the week with. I returned with new friends, a renewed love of yoga, and inspired to travel more. Thank you Erin and EAT.PRAY.MOVE for a memorable experience! ” - from Eat Pray Move testimonials page

    "AMAZING!"
    “I have had my Iceland guide for ten years and my yoga practice for over 20. This Iceland retreat met all my expectations. The well thought-through itinerary for the discovery of a new place, meeting amazing & lovely people, Erin’s knowledge of the area & yoga and the food. The yoga classes were a relaxed start into an amazing day, accessible & deeply enjoyable for all levels of practitioners. The perfect mix for discovering an amazingly intriguing country. I would travel with EPM again, anytime, hopefully soon.” - From Eat Pray Move testimonials page

    "Life changing event"
    “My trip to Provence with EAT.PRAY.MOVE was a life changing event. Not only did I experience Provence and its beautful landscapes, history, and culture, but I was also given a chance to meet a group of people who inspired me in so many unique ways. Erin Lewis is a phenomenal yoga instructor. She brings such a calming presence and expert knowledge to her practice; I felt so comfortable and well taken care of knowing Erin was there. I would highly recommend to take a yoga retreat with EAT.PRAY.MOVE, as it is a trip I will never forget. ” - From Eat Pray Move testimnials page
