About the place

Puerto Princesa is the capital of the island province of Palawan. The city has been acclaimed several times as the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines. With a wide range of attractions ranging from beaches to wildlife reserves, Puerto Princesa is a nature lover's paradise. There is a useful tourist information office at the airport next to the arrival hall which hands out maps and gives information about current events in the city. Bahay Kalipay is an intimate ashram style space where guests, teachers and facilitators make themselves at home. Some of our independent structures include Issa Hut with double bedrooms and the Ma-I common space, our personal Dap-ay “beach,” the Healing Arts hut we call, Pugad ng Diwata, and Kalipay Kafé, which is also open to the general public for breakfast, lunch and dinner by reservation. Accommodations include private couples cabin, family rooms, and individual rooms for our guests, which are almost always retreatants. We have a daily onsite staff of kitchen personnel, guest relations and retreat facilitators, and offer daily housekeeping as requested, and as-needed laundry services. Guests of Bahay Kalipay can take advantage of our gentle detox, deep cleanse program of raw food, yoga classes, workshops, spa services and more. Bahay Kalipay is a humble retreat centre with simple accommodations and facilities suitable for a total mind-body detox. Bahay Kalipay is also a green zone. We have sustainable practices like keeping organic kitchen wastes to fertilize our vegetable garden, using biodegradable soap for dishwashing and laundry, and bathing with a pail of water instead of an overhead shower.

Food

Our dining room can seat 24 comfortably, and has squeezed up to 35 guests, as diners enjoy our creatively-prepared raw, organic, mostly vegan cuisine using quality ingredients sourced from certified local producers. It is adorned with a collection of spiritual art by artists who have visited Bahay Kalipay and have left some of their work to share. The Kafé is also open to guests who are keen to experience Bahay Kalipay and meet some of the residents. However, advanced reservation required. You will have fully Raw vegan dishes. Enjoy our mostly nut-free, low glycemic and high on organic raw food meals designed to aid your detoxification process. Our food is always fresh and made with love. Be open to and surprised by how delicious and fulfilling raw food can be. Savor each bite with an awareness of the many different flavors set to change your perception on food. Food is indeed an energy giving life force. You will be amazed at how your taste preferences change right after your cleanse process and how your body then craves fresher, nutrient rich, live foods.

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. Abhyanga whole body massage Abhyanga is a gentle, full body cleansing massage that involves touch, warm oils and herbs to improve the overall wellbeing of a person.

Reiki Humans, being connected to the universal web of life, contribute to the balance (or lack of) which shows up in every aspect of our physical world. A lack of balance is when energy is blocked, withheld, even stagnant Balance is when you return to your innate alignment – a place of love, peace and gratitude. Using Reiki, a beautiful art form of channeling energy around us, we work together to clear, replenish and rejuvenate while enhancing the bodies natural ability to heal.

At the end of the session, we will integrate by journaling, discussion and next steps. (Wear comfortable clothing for moving freely.) Suggested Donation: P3,500 for 60-75 minutes.

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. Tza’s Purvakaema center is a science-based, Filipino flavored, appropriate and ecologically sensitive approach to the ancient art of Ayurveda. It is currently situated in Bahay Kalipay Retreat Center in Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan. The program is intended for detox newbies as well as Jills-of-all-trades who would like to try a new way of gentle healing through oil massage. The highlight of the Purvakarma detox cleanse program is the daily abhyanga oil massage. We source our oil from local, organic, and sustainable sources. This oil is near-medicinal in quality! 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 went to BK last November 2016 and it was a unique experience. My first time to do detox yoga retreat and it was worth it. Also, my first time to eat raw vegan food for 1 whole week! Note: I am not a vegetarian/vegan. The food served every meal were a work of art and so delicious and filling even if it is only fruit and veggies. Accommodation is good, it is a back to basic experience. Oh! The bonus I got from my trip there, I made new friends. From Tripadvisor

    Bahay Kalipay is a place of peace and simplicity. The food is nutritious, lovingly prepared and accompanied with green smoothies and snacks. An average day at the retreat includes 2 yoga classes and a workshop (with time for personal practice) all of which work together to heal both body and mind. Even though my time at the retreat was cut short I loved the experience and would recommend it to absolutely anyone! From Tripadvisor

  • "Inspiring and enriching"
    What an amazing place. I knew as soon as I arrived that Bahay Kalipay was a beautiful space to spend some time, relaxing, meditating and doing yoga. Three hours of yoga daily- morning and evening classes, meditations and workshops, delicious raw food diet prepared by lovely creative staff, coconuts on tap! Anne R Great teachers, helpful and friendly staff- I was lucky enough to be there when Imana was teaching sound and chakra meditations. The other guests were all so welcoming and friendly and I felt really comfortable within a short time of being there. Make sure you have a body scrub followed by a massage - two hours of bliss. This is a place I would love to return to... one day. From Tripadvisor

    "Be with Yourself, Nature & Beautiful Souls"
    My journey unexpectedly led me to BK and it will always be one of those moments in my life that I could pinpoint a shift. What started as a 7 day DNC stay, with original plans to continue to explore the Philippines, ended up being 10. I spent it with beautiful souls. Kim, Tadeya, Mathias, Vanessa, Gia, are just some of the staff that make it such an amazing place. I spent it getting to know myself through meditation, yoga, inner dance, long conversations, cleansing my body via delicious raw meals and being completely with myself. Go. Be open. Be free. You are worth the investment. I'm ever so grateful. From Tripadvisor

    "Wonderful experience!"
    Bahay Kalipay is an amazing place to spend some time for a detox, yoga and spiritual development or just relaxing and taking a break from everyday life. All the people working there are really friendly and helpful and make you feel comfortable and welcome. Rawfood served there is the best I've ever tasted and made me feel really healthy and gave me a real boost of energy. Inner dance sessions are something not to be missed, if you give it chance it can give a new direction to your life. Bahay Kalipay is a perfect place for healing and taking steps towards your true identity! From Tripadvisor

    I just spent a month at Bahay Kalipay. This is a lovely place to regroup, eat well, take part in small workshops and/or just relax and let yourself be taken care of. They only use natural products for cleaning and have them available if you don't. So you just need to show up with an open mind and a willingness to try new things. There were many guests throughout the month that were very surprised as to how easy it was to eat raw for the days they were there. With the creativity in the kitchen each meal was a welcomed surprise, although my favorite days were the silence & coconut fasting days! The staff is super sweet and the grounds are lush. I highly recommend spending some time here if you're looking for a reset! From Tripoadvisor

    Late last November, my dear friend Julia and I spent three days yoga-ing, meditating, connecting and eating at Bahay Kalipay on the island of Palawan in the Philippines. Bahay Kalipay is a well-established, genuine community and retreat centre that allows visitors to press pause on life, practice yoga, open their minds to new ideas, and detox if they wish to do so.
