About this trip

Join Loren Lotus & Ryann Tillman with Lotus Retreats for 8-days and 7-nights of Self-Realization & Empowerment in the heart of Bali, Indonesia! Bali is an island of natural, cultural, and spiritual wonders.

What better way for you to experience her magic than on an unforgettable Bali Yoga Retreat with Lotus retreats!  Our Bali retreat will allow you to fully immerse yourself in the relaxation, culture, and beauty of Bali - all while deepening your yoga practice.


Retreat yourself to a week of Balinese culture, Buddhist and Hindu spirituality and an abundance of unique offerings special to this island. Practice yoga daily, relax and detox by a beachside spa with Balinese massage, and explore the heart center of Ubud! We'll offer excursions to explore The Monkey Forrest, cleanse in the Titra Empul water temple and immerse with a variety of Balinese tradition and nighttime activities including kekac fire dances!


Accommodations

ARRIVE & SETTLE IN  FROM TRAVEL - UDARA BALI YOGA DETOX SPA


We will first spend 3 nights on the coast of Canggu at the Udara Bali Yoga Spa to settle in post-travel. Udara Bali is an integrated healing yoga resort offering wellness and detox lifestyle to alleviate the stress of modern living. Nestled between the Indian ocean, rice fields and surrounded with ancient temples, Udara sets the mood for a relaxing and authentic Bali holiday. 

Udara is in a nice quiet spot facing the ocean; great location to get away from the hustle and bustle you can find in other parts of Bali.

But if you do want a bit of action it is a short walk along the beach to Echo Beach where there are restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The hotel also provides a free shuttle into Canggu about 4 times a day for you to explore! 

The whole design of this resort is breathtaking: hot and cold pools, hot tubs, meditation room, saunas, and incredible yoga shalas overlooking the Indian Ocean. Each room is uniquely designed, equipped with clean linens, comfy beds, air conditioning, an amazing private outdoor bathroom and spectacular views;  just a step outside your back door.

During your stay at Udara, you can attend any of the their free classes including Aerial Silks, Acro Yoga and Water Aerobics. You will also receive a welcome massage in traditional balinese style to relax into the space! 

Lotus Retreats teachers Loren Lotus & Ryann Tillman will be offering daily yoga classes, workshops and a welcoming ceremony to begin our practice of Self-Realization & Empowerment.


RELOCATE TO THE CENTER OF UBUD - THE SOULSHINE BALI RETREAT OASIS

On Tuesday, we will transport inland to the heart of Ubud to one of Bali’s best Yoga Oasis, The Soulshine Bali Luxury Hotel! Here we will settle in for 5-days and 4-nights to practice yoga daily, explore all the offerings nearby in Ubud and zen out in the infinity pool and beautiful views. 


Soulshine is an independent hotel focused on relaxed luxury and nestled between ancient rice terraces, temples and a lush jungle landscape, peacefully located ten minutes from Ubud center.

Each room features handcrafted furniture by local artisans mixed with antique pieces and modern decor. The Soulshine Bali kitchen serves farm to table freshness from the organic garden with a menu full of delicious vegan, vegetarian and local flavours.


Along with the inclusion of Bali’s tradtion, you’ll see temples, statues and daily offerings by the local Balinese community that has welcomed this resort kindly into their heritage. 

Lounge by the infinity salt-water pool, stroll through the organic garden or ride scooters into the bustling town of Ubud to see all that this wonderful place has to offer. 

Yoga and Workshops

Our mission during a Self-Realization & Empowerment Retreat is to offer daily yoga classes, workshops and ceremonies to deepen your understanding of Self, or spirit, and leave you feeling empowered and connected to your divine purpose. 


We will gather on the Yoga shala twice a day to practice physical asana with Loren and Ryann. They will offer a variety of styles; Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin tailored to all levels. The purpose is to come into union with your physical body, the vessel of your spirit and move energy freely with breath & movement. 


We will offer daily workshops & opening & closing ceremonies to deepen your understanding of yogic practices and the study of Self. We offer unique group exercises and bonding opportunities to deepen the study together and share our experiences. Every activity is optional yet encouraged. Some of the exercises and activities we do during a Self-Realization & Empowerment Retreat week are so unique, eye-opening and heart-opening that it leaves every guest with the true sense of .. self-realization & empowerment.



Excursions

Nourishment

Yoga is a practice not only on the mat, but in the kitchen! Nourishing ourselves from the inside out is a HUGE component to a Lotus Retreats week. 

You will enjoy slow, whole, and organic food influenced by the traditional Balinese kitchen. Everything is homemade, prepared carefully with much laughter and love.


Nourish your soul with daily handcrafted meals made with love for breakfast and dinner. 

Additional lunch plates are available at the resort but we also encourage lunches elsewhere in the town to taste all of Ubud’s offerings. 


Udara's Detox Spa serves Asian/Western cuisine fresh from the earth and sea. With a focus on healthy, fresh and organic vegan, vegetarian and seafood dishes, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in an ambient setting of local fishermen.


At Soulshine Bali, eating healthy is made easy and delicious.  Local specialities, veggie burgers, grilled fish, creamy vegan pasta or a raw desert, you'll always find something nourishing or indulgent in our predominantly vegan menu. All of Soulshine's organic ingredients and produce comes from their own organic garden and neighbouring farms.

This was one of the best experiences I've had in my life! Everything about this yoga retreat was so wonderful. Gitana del Mar was absolutely beautiful being right on the water and the staff was super accommodating that entire week. My private bungalow was super spacious and comfortable. All of the meals were incredible. What Loren put together with the yoga sessions, workshops, volunteering with a local elementary school, and all of the additional excursions were just unforgettable and such amazing experiences. It was also just so wonderful to meet so many incredible people. I highly recommend a going on a Lotus Retreat and I definitely hope to go on another one in the future! ~Kristin H.
There's nothing negative I could possibly say about this retreat experience!! This was my second time around with Loren & Lotus Retreats, and I definitely plan on coming back for more. Loren is an incredible retreat host and yoga instructor. After my first Lotus retreat to Cuba - and now to Colombia, I came back completely invigorated and inspired to further deepen my own yoga practice. Loren’s retreats are the perfect mix of yoga, meditation, dharma, relaxation, and cultural excursions. She provides a wide variety of activities, but there is never any pressure to do them all. Her retreat itineraries are designed in a way that allows for plenty of flexibility for whatever you’re hoping to get out of the experience. Also, the accommodations at Gitana del Mar are exceptional! From the food, to the service, to the private ocean views! I seriously have nothing negative to say at all! Much love, Jenn M

I had the most beautiful, empowering, uplifting and nourishing experience. I did not practice yoga more than once a month before this trip but I was drawn to the other elements of the trip and I am so glad I came. Lotus retreats put together an amazing experience for ALL. I loved the daily yoga sessions two times a day, although I am a beginner the instructors, Loren and Maria made everything newbie-friendly. I loved that I had the option to skip sessions and enjoy the stunning property without it being an issue, hello freedom. The retreat center was absolute paradise, it felt like I was in the jungle with a oceanfront and INCREDIBLE FOOD to meet everyone's diverse diets. I loved all the excursions, the cultural immersion mural painting was my favorite but the other excursions were equally awesome. The workshops throughout the week allowed us all to open up and truly get to know each other, I am so grateful for the community we cultivated and an incredible experience. I'll be attending the next one :)
Where to begin! What a lovely, nurturing and full of Love and Laughter experience. The group of people gathered together for the 2/2020 Cuban Retreat became my forever friends and Family. The Retreat center run by Coco was so comfortable and the food was extraordinary prepared by a caring and fun staff. Music always going and dancing while they cooked. The excursions were very interesting. Loren and Maria, the Yoga Maidens, were exceptional. I never thought I would do two yoga classes a day..no way and I did all but one morning. I cannot recommend more highly this experience. Loved it. Just what the Doc( inside of me) ordered. And Cuba and her people are Beautiful! Elizabeth George
Wow - what an experience! The food was so clean and beautiful. Any allergy or diet restriction followed precisely. The leaders Loren and Maria were so friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend to anyone Thanks again I’m sure I’ll be seeing you soon

I had the opportunity to deepen my practice / experience the beauty of Tulum Mexico with Lotus Retreats and would do it again in a heartbeat! The Lotus Retreats crew quickly created a space of loving community, increased awareness, and intentional practice within the first few hours of our retreat and it only got better from there! These retreats are special. Humanity in raw form. I'll be back for more, no doubt!

Loren's yoga retreats are one of my favorite ways to replenish my soul and body with fresh new prana energy, inspiration, beautiful scenery, amazingly tasty food, and like-minded new friends from all over the world. Loren, you can count me in every time!!! :-) Pascal
