Course description

Detox, Yoga, Meditation, Breath work, Energy healing, Art & movement therapy Raw Food Chef, Daniw Arrazola, together with our conscious-kitchen visiting chefs & assistants will prepare gourmet raw food meals to detox your body while you enjoy the various tastes of super foods that nourish your body on a cellular level. We use our own blend of essential oils and cold-pressed coconut oil to aid the cleansing process and soothe your body through therapeutic massage and deep nature body scrub. A colon cleanse is also scheduled to jump-start your detox process. While the package includes one colon cleanse, most of our guests opt for a second treatment to end the 7 days with an exclamation point and set them up nicely upon their return to “regular” life. Aside from Inner Dance sessions, your personal transformation process will be supported by workshops and rituals led by resident and visiting facilitators. You will also experience the deep meditative quality of a one-day coconut fast as we hold space for total silence. Our daily detox regimen, comprised of morning flush, dry skin brushing, oil pulling therapy and lymphatic system exercises, is designed for you to continue the cleanse when you go back home.

It developed thousands of years ago in India. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. The primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease. But treatments may be recommended for specific health problems.

Instructors

Serena olsen
Serena, an American from New York, has been living in South East Asia since 2011. A deep connection with a Cherokee shaman bloodline, has pervaded her psyche andphysical space since she was a child. Waves of energetic information andsynchronistic happenings are often present in her daily life and interactions. In 2011, she was even struck by lightning. Exactly one year after her lightning strike, Serena experienced Inner Dance for thefirst time. It was both profound and painful because, for her, it felt like being struck by lightning again, but much stronger. In the days and weeks to follow, sheunderwent physical, emotional, and spiritual healing through her own self-discovery using Inner Dance, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness as tools forexpanding her consciousness and field of perceptual awareness. In the years since, Serena has globally facilitated experiences, workshops, andtrainings for “learning the unlearning” of the mind’s conditioning through InnerDance, Cognitive Resonance, Energy School and other perspective based consciousness teachings. She is a Radiant Child yoga instructor, student of Sat Nam Rasayan, certified in theHANDLE approach, and a WMA Wilderness First Responder. She also spent 4 yearsteaching outdoor and environmental education in the US before moving to Malaysiawhere she taught academic, emotional, and life skills to children of all ages in alearning center focused on holistic, alternative methods for inner transformationand success.

 

Tza Bautista-Leube
Bahay Kalipay is happy to have Tza Bautista-Leube a certified Ayurvedic massage therapist whose own life and practice mirror her profession. She is an Ashtanga certified yoga teacher who went to India on a yoga pilgrimage and came back after receiving her certificate from the Sivananda Institute in Neyyar Dam, South India.

Guaranteed 100% Philippine made, ZERO additives or preservatives. Just pure plant goodness prepared to Tza’s standards. Tza shares her passion for the healing arts by exploring other modalities compatible with an Ayurvedic philosophy. Among these are:*raw food*yoga*reiki*meditation*qi gong

 

sasha sakshi
After 9 years in the marketing and public relations world, Sasha left her job in Singapore after realizing she could no longer suppress her sensitivities and wanted to live a more authentic life. Being born into a bloodline of sensitives and seers who were afraid of their own gifts, she was constantly taught by her parents to suppress her gifts in fear of the unknown. Since childhood, she grew up in a world of fear, conditions, illusions and rules. Living in this world where she was not allowed to be her true self, Sasha eventually broke down and went into severe depression and had addictions to food to ease the pain she was experiencing. The crisis experience served as a gateway to clarity, leading her to deepen her search for her own healing and spiritual connection to Source. She discovered Hatha yoga in 2011 and was taught under the loving guidance of Master Manoj Thakur, completing her Yoga Instructor Certification Course (YICC) in Singapore. She later went to SVYASA Yoga Bangalore, India to do intensive yoga training where her love for the yoga lineage deepened as she studied more into its history. Her intent in teaching yoga is to teach it at its most authentic and traditional form. Sasha fell in love with Yoga after she experienced deep emotional release and a deep connection to Source through her asana and pranayama practice. Sasha believes that a yoga class is not all about completing fancy postures, but to go deeper in connection with the mind, body and soul with each present breath. Yoga led her into deeper physical and emotional openings and as she continued her search for truth, she found Inner Dance by chance while she was searching for spiritual communities to be a part of online. Her first Inner Dance session in Singapore was facilitated by a visiting teacher, Tony Mendoza who is from Cebu. After realizing what that session had done to her on many different levels, she followed her heart and flew to Bahay Kalipay Retreat Centre in 2014 to attend Inner Dance Energy School with Pi Villaraza and to go on a raw food detox. The entire experience changed her life. Sasha is now an inner dance facilitator and does Transference healing work and incorporates some of these elements into her Yoga sessions. Sasha loves nature and animals deeply. In her free time, she enjoys reading and being by the ocean. She is deeply passionate about yoga, inner dance, ego work and practicing equanimity and compassion in her everyday life. She owes deep gratitude to the Universe and has complete Trust in every moment of magic she is experiencing here on Earth.

 

Pi villaraza founder
Pi left the corporate world of advertising and marketing to undertake a vision quest around the Philippines where he walked around Mindanao without money for one year, ending up as a hermit on a deserted beach on an island in Northern Palawan. In this place called Kalipay Beach, he came into his personal healing, eating coconuts almost exclusively, which led to his discovery of a powerful vibration that awoke within him. In the years after this, he has brought the healing energy to more than ten thousand people from over 40 nationalities, founding a successful international detox center in Puerto Princesa and an international healing eco-village in Bacungan, Palawan. His work has been reported by the media in Europe, America and all over Asia, where he travels extensively to give advanced energy awareness trainings and to assist in the formation of healing centers in many large cities around Asia. Pi has worked extensively with medical practitioners, schools, government and NGO agencies, corporations and many institutions around the world, in healing and also in progressive education, deep ecology, raw food nutrition, organic food production, community development and sustainable architecture. He is an active environmentalist and is the former Philippine ambassador for the Global Eco-Village Network. His well-received book Conscious Trance is available in bookstores around the Philippines and soon to be found on Amazon.com. He leads the 5-Day Inner Dance Energy School, which gives students a chance to learn by experience and develop their own understanding and techniques of sharing Inner Dance with earnest seekers.

 

Daniw arrazola

 

Daniw started on the Inner Food path because of spiritual and emotional reasons. Though it has also healed her of several physical issues in the past, Daniw’s life has shifted many times in the past seven years of running her first center in Manila and eventually taking over the management of one of the first raw food and retreat centers of its kind in Asia. As the co-founder of Bahay Kalipay, she has introduced raw food nutrition and cuisine to many people who have later influenced so many that comprise the raw food support community in the Philippines. She has organized and managed retreats and workshops in Penang, KL, Singapore and various parts of the Philippine Islands. She received her certification in Raw Food Preparation and Detox during a one-month course in Thailand organized by Pure Joy Academy. Daniw established Raw Food Pinoy, an advocacy initiative offering a support system that makes raw food accessible to regular households for personal and planetary health and well-being. She is proudly the mother of two: Sinag, a boy whose diet while in-vitro was 100% raw food and a baby girl, Issa, who came into the world pain-free in an unassisted water birth in November 2013. To witness this amazing, breathtaking miracle of a birth, click here for the video. Daniw also leads transformative modalities, which include Inner dance, Inner food, Inner yoga, Inner birthing and Inner parenting. Currently she leads raw food workshops at Bahay Kalipay, including a 3-Day Home-Cheffing Raw Food Course.

    "I can warmly recommend Bahay Kalipay"
    "I can warmly recommend Bahay Kalipay. It’s a beautiful place created by some very inspiring people. I had a 10 days stay at Bahay Kalipay in January 2015. This was my first yoga retreat. I came for a break from a busy everyday life in Scandinavia and to practice yoga. I got that – as well as much more. Do not expect a serviced, luxury retreat - Bahay Kalipay is not that. Instead it is a community where everyone helps each other and lives together in simplicity. The guests are from all over the world and with many different backgrounds – from busy business people to spiritualists. The daily schedule changes but most days there are two yoga classes – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. During my stay Nick was the yoga teacher. I really enjoyed his classes! I can recommend joining all of the classes/program in the daily schedule - yoga and meditation and many more – however, it is optional and you have plenty of opportunities to shape your own stay. The retreat is located in a small village in the middle of a banana plantation. The area is beautiful. Its only 15 minutes from Puerto Princesa. Be aware that the beach close to the retreat is not suitable for swimming – there are other places on Palawan that are better for this. The staff at BK is very nice and helpful. I’m not a vegetarian or vegan but I really enjoyed the raw food. The raw food, fresh coconuts and green smoothies are an important part of the retreat. Everything is organic and local. Thanks to everyone at BK for an amazing experience. Best wishes,Caroline" - From TripAdvisor

    "I will go again"
    "I loved this place, like really loved it. I have been recommending in since I left 6 months ago. For me it was a safe haven to get back to myself. I work in a big city and was stressed and run down. Here I got a break and exercised my body and mind. The people that volunteer at Bahay Kalipay take the time to plan uniquely deep exercises, from inner dance to heaping art classes. I had a deep lesson on Buddhism values and powerful yoga classes that were clearly organized and taking into account each students personal needs and goals. I am so thankful for the kindness and support I received at the 'happy house.' The food is great! I'm vegan already, but the food here is a real treat, from freshly made vegan cheese cake to beautifully prepared soups and salads. I felt healthy and alive, the quiet area and beautifully natural setting is great for the soul. You can see it in the faces of the people that stay there long term, they know that this place has a special energy. I cant wait to return." - From TripAdvisor

  • "Home on Palawan"
    "I had an amazing experience in BK. I really felt at home and I extended my stay twice. The food is amazing, the people feel like family and the yoga was very good. I learned a lot about myself and it helped me a lot in my journey to self realization. I loved the laughter meditation, the art-therapy and the inner dance sessions. The food was so tasteful and filling and it feels like you're eating all day, because there are smoothies in between, healthy snacks and free access to coconuts! I didn't do the detox program, but my body was detoxing anyway and I felt so good and energetic. I am for sure going back there!" - From TripAdvisor

    "Full of love, magic and purity"
    "Everything here is top notch and I highly highly recommend it. People working here: Amazing human beings. From Jenny who runs the front desk + many other operations to Daniw and Pi (the owners) to the awesome chefs and even Ramil the van driver – everyone is just kind and good and an utter pleasure to be around. People not working here: If you want to meet people from all corners of the world with an impressive plethora of knowledge and experiences – this is the place. I’ve met some very unique and awesome people here, and made some unlikely but certainly enriching friendships. Food: Oh my god the food is ahhhh. Seriously world-class raw vegan food. I think the entire week here, with 21 meals and 14 snacks, I ate salad twice. They can make everything from samosas to cheesecake to hearty and filling soups. If you love cooking like me you can ask to help prepare a meal and learn their magical ways! Physical living space: Beautiful. You can see the love that went into building up this entire retreat and everything is just tikki-esque and you truly feel like you’re living in a tropical paradise. Yoga & meditation: Amazing. I had the incredible pleasure of having Ezzie as my yoga instructor for the whole week (often having 2 sessions with her a day) and her love for the practice just radiates throughout the entire space. She’s a superstar yoga instructor so I’d definitely keep my fingers crossed for her! Bhante (monk) and Nilhs (Tai Chi and Qui Gong) led our meditation practices and I loved those as well – very eye opening. Toilets: When I first read that the toilets here don’t flush and they don’t have toilet paper (it’s a water bucket system) I put on my fancy princess dress and said no way in hell am I going to deal with that. I will buy toilet paper from the airport and do my business as I’m used to. Well I forgot to buy my own toilet paper – and honestly, I’m glad I did. It’s really no big deal and this system makes you realize how wasteful we truly are. Plus in the heat using a water system is pretty refreshing. Yes it sounds gross and disgusting at first – but seriously, it’s not. Spiritual-ness: I’m not a spiritual person and honestly I was a little worried that coming here would surround me with blissed out yoginis floating away in la-la land with the great power of the heavens guiding their mystical rainbow essence to nirvana. Or something like that. To my great surprise I found people who are very down to earth but also, unlike most people in my normal life, in tune with the earth. They understand the environment and try to work with it as opposed to just having it in the background. My eyes have definitely been opened and now yoga is much more than just a workout. However if you are spiritual, this place is also great for you. All in all this place is for literally everyone, except those with closed minds. But even then, come here and hopefully it’ll open your mind. ☺" - From TripAdvisor

    "A blissful home of love, serenity and harmony"
    "Bahay Kalipay is a unique place in this world. After spending 10 days there, I not only felt like my batteries were fully charged and my mind completely at rest, I found myself reconsidering certain life choices I had made. The beautiful environment of peace and tranquility enabled me to journey withing my own soul and reach deep down. And trust me, I have been to calm relaxing places before, but there is something about this place that makes it different, special. A perfect balance is achieved with some down time given to retrieve and meet yourself, and some bonding group activities which helped me deepen my own introspection, such as yoga, chi gong and guided meditation. The teachers and space holders are warm and open people, who will listen and chat as a friend but also attend to any particular needs. I found myself feeling at home in this cocoon away from the urban jungle of modern life. On top of that, the food is absolutely amazing, both in its taste and physical effects. It was my first time experiencing a complete Raw Food diet and it was a beautiful discovery, an explosion of subtle tastes and dishes! But I also felt the transformation in my mind, body and soul. A feeling of reconnection to myself that I had never experienced before, as I understood the true meaning of the saying "you are what you eat". I also enjoyed the Inner Dance sessions, which combined music and movement in order to reconnect with our higher selves. I also was extremely pleased about the care given to the natural environment. Minimum water resources are exploited and guests are encouraged to use natural products (which are sold in the Earth Store at the front of the retreat) as the shower water is recycled into the garden. A real sense of community is achieved as we contribute with small chores such as doing our own dishes. I met some beautiful like minded people, with whom I have kept contact and can't wait to go back! All in all an enriching experience, that gave me exactly what I needed: rest, balance and love." - From TripAdvisor

    "Serenity, love, cleansing and happiness"
    "I am so grateful to have been able to spend time in this magical space. It is a place to relax and cleanse and heal. We spent just under two weeks here in July (originally booked only 1 week but we just couldn't leave) Surrounded by beautiful lush nature, wonderful people and AMAZING GORMET RAW FOOD MEALS. Bahay Kalipay had so much to offer us in terms of learning new creative mediums. Including: Art therapy (lead by the lovely in-house Buddhist Monk, Bante) Yoga with the talented Ezzie, Qi Gong with Neels, Guided meditations, Soul Journalling, Inner Dance practice and many more. Massages, Chlonics, Body scrubs and Aruvada Counseling was also available. Special sacred space, thanks to everyone who made our time so wonderful. We will be back!!!!

    "The gifts get bigger the longer you stay!"
    "My stay at Bahay Kalipay was a time of healing and discovery. Most people come for the 7 day Deep Nature Cleanse or Yoga wellness program which are wonderful but if you're able to stay longer, then do so. It's a retreat center and more importantly, it's a community. I was welcome to share my gifts and I appreciated experiencing the gifts of others. I had the space and time to explore some deep places within myself. The raw food, vegan diet, the yoga classes, the weekly Silence Day and Energy School all invited me to see myself and the world in a whole new way. Many of the blocks I used to feel have evaporated. Many of the fears that held me back from stepping fully into my life purpose are gone. This place has a magic that is difficult to describe. It meets you, where ever you are on your life path and turbo charges your personal growth." - From TripAdvisor

    "I left feeling so blessed"
    "I wanted to get the whole day BK Experience two Saturdays ago but had to settle for just the afternoon because of a change in flight schedule. I got there in time for the food demo which I really appreciated. I've made cashew cheese before but Daniw's recipe is a lot more simple and her ingredients more accessible. I actually bought a kilo of raw cashews to bring home so I could start working on some dips and pasta sauces. Having my roots in the nearby islands of Cuyo and Culion, I quickly felt at home. I was charmed by the simplicity of Bahay Kalipay and I was glad I was able to indulge in an afternoon's worth of earthing. Lunch found me surrounded by an Argentinian yoga teacher, a German Qi Gong instructor, the resident monk, the BK teachers, folks from Australia, Malaysia, and two ladies from Manila. It was nice chatting over delicious raw vegan food. I didn't mind my wait for my massage because I got to chat some more with the other guests and the lovely staff. I also got to play with Sinag and baby Issa who were just really amazing. The massage itself was pretty good and looking back, it prepared me for what came next. What had the biggest impact on me was the yoga. Stripped down to what felt so authentic, my yoga experience at Bahay Kalipay ruined commercialized yoga for me forever! We had hatha yoga at the labyrinth. All throughout the class, I was enveloped in such beautiful energy - from the trees and sunshine that came through them, the chirping birds, the beautiful sky and the light rain that came towards the end. I appreciated the teaching style of the instructor. It felt like she was really sharing a part of herself with us. I felt such a deep calm after. This state of well-being has not yet worn-off. I am able to transition to a meditative state a lot faster which is doing wonders for my prayer life. I do wish though that we didn't have the sound of construction cutting every now and then through the peace and quiet. My stay at Bahay Kalipay was rather short but it had a powerful effect on me. I'm going back before the year ends." - From TripAdvisor
