About this trip

Relish in 6 days of meditation, daily yoga practices, heartfelt experiences, ceremony and sacred disconnection nestled amidst lush bamboo forests and the soothing sounds of nature, in Bali’s cultural heart away from the bustle at a private luxury sustainable resort.


This retreat will be an intimate group immersion of like-minded souls on a journey to elevated health and wellbeing by dissolving all barriers and being open to receive. We’ll begin our days with observation, guided meditation and vigorous yoga practices in a most well-equipped yoga shala with a serene private setting positioned to offer breathtaking views of the surrounding greenery, followed by delicious breakfasts.


The Expansive Heart retreat 2024 includes daily yoga & meditation, transformational workshops, intention-setting ceremonies, consciously planned excursions, a majestic trip to a gorgeous waterfall, and lots more.


Shahad’s hatha yoga teachings weave elements from various practices and lineages primarily the Ghosh lineage. Her classes invoke deep awareness through a challenging, yet fluid journey of effort and ease through the body with precise cues, deep concentration, and an unwavering presence. Through the use of meditation, pranayama, kriya and asana as tools to hone mind-body connection you will create strength and flexibility in your body while exploring new depths on the mat.


All experiences, excursions and personally cherished guest facilitators have been consciously considered to further amplify the journey within. This journey is designed to create a harmonious balance between yoga practice, nature immersion, cultural exploration, and personal reflection. It will be a physical, mental and emotional reset and recalibration.

May it be a source of inspiration and renewal for your heart and spirit.

From a young age, Shahad often journaled and reflected on life. That inquiry led her on a 10-day Vipassana Meditation course of silence straight after graduating university and set her on the path of yoga. To Shahad, the continuous practice of yoga is a seed of self-liberation from all non-truth. With countless hours of yogic study and practice, her classes invoke deep awareness through a challenging, yet fluid journey of effort and ease through the body with precise cues, deep concentration, and an unwavering presence. All are welcome.

Each session with you helps me delve deeper into a meditative state and achieve inner harmony. Your attention to detail, ability to create a cozy atmosphere, and deep understanding of meditative practices make your sessions truly unique. Thanks to you, I feel more balanced and energized. Thank you for your hard work and inspiration! From Tatiana 🙏

This was my 3rd beach sound healing with the lovely Shahad. I must say they have become an integral part of my mindfulness routine. I genuinely look forward to this monthly gatherings. I love the energy, the sheer respect and how welcoming our group always feels. There is always so much warmth. But most importantly, Shahad continuously share her very best gifts with us all. I think this is a direct reflection of her alignment with her work. These sound healing sessions are such a treat. The perfect invitation to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with ourselves. I look forward to sharing many more sacred moments with the community and thank you so much my lovely Shahad for being such a breath of fresh air and nothing but pure authenticity. Sending you so much love 🫶🏾💕

I knew I had to sign up, the moment I received the invite in my inbox. (Sidenote: If you haven’t done so already, sign up to Shahad’s newsletter - lots of value and super uplifting ) And as usual, it did not disappoint. Shahad is extremely mindful in everything she does and the beach sound journey is an incredible testament to that. It was beyond magical. So much that I didn’t want it to end :) All this to say these sound healing sessions have quickly become a major highlight in my wellness routine. It’s the perfect way to slow down, disconnect and reframe the mind. I left feeling extremely refreshed. —————— To my lovely Shahad: Thank you so much for curating this magical moment and most importantly for sharing your gift with us. 🙏🏾 Stef 💕

From the first minute I received an email from Shahad, I booked the session immediately. I arrived at the location, walking around the backside of the villa, and was left breathless. The location, the scenery, the people - it was an incredibly amazing experience, not to mention Shahad's spirit. It was just perfectly done, my soul and heart were so chanting. I'm looking forward to many more journeys with you, Shahad. Thank you so much for the energy you've spread. Truly wonderful. All the blessings, Namaste.

The retreat offered a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. From the moment I arrived, I was enchanted by the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings. The services provided at the retreat were exceptional. The staff was warm, welcoming, and attentive to every detail, ensuring that every aspect of my experience was enjoyable and rejuvenating. From the comfortable accommodation to the nourishing meals, every element was thoughtfully curated to enhance my well-being. The yoga sessions were a highlight of my retreat experience. Led by Shahad, each session offered a perfect blend of physical challenge and mindful relaxation. Practicing yoga in such a tranquil setting allowed me to deepen my practice and connect with nature on a profound level. The sound healing session under the open sky was truly magical. Surrounded by the beauty of the natural world, I felt a sense of peace and serenity wash over me as the healing sounds enveloped my senses. It was a transformative experience that left me feeling grounded and centered. The group discussions provided a wonderful opportunity for connection and introspection.These discussions encouraged open dialogue and exploration of meaningful topics. Engaging with fellow retreat participants in such a supportive environment was both enlightening and enriching. Overall, my experience was nothing short of transformative. From the stunning location to the attentive services, every aspect of the retreat exceeded my expectations. I left feeling refreshed, inspired, and deeply grateful for the opportunity to embark on this journey of self-discovery. I wholeheartedly recommend the experience to anyone seeking a peaceful retreat that nourishes the mind, body, and soul.
