Welcome to the Bali Dream!
There is no other place like Bali. The Island of the Gods offers great beaches, countless waves for surfing and wonderful natural
sites to visit and explore, colorful ceremonies, and gifted artists.
But, Bali is much more than that! There is a special vibe, an essence, something authentic that is difficult to describe, which has touched and inspired visitors from all over the world since decades. It has something to do with the Balinese themselves and their warm and welcoming character.
Whatever your expectations and desires, they all can be more than fulfilled. Bali is regularly rated one of the Top 10 tropical holiday destinations of the world.
Eight soul-reviving days of Yoga, music, meditation, massage, beautiful
nature and nourishing food. A week to retreat from the busyness of daily life – to
Rest, Recharge, and Connect Within.
Begum and Elena met through friends at a Retreat in India, and now they are so excited to meet you in Paradise, Bali for another unforgettable retreat with you all!

Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow.
Good for beginners?
Absolutely! A Vinyasa class is both a great place to start and to continue challenging yourself.
