About this trip

Ground and center your soul while learning and exploring Bali's culture, scenery, and participating in the biggest holiday of the year, the Balinese celebration of Nyepi (the Balinese New Year).  Come spend 8 days in Bali at an all-inclusive, luxury retreat center!


Your retreat takes place in a breathtaking Balinese retreat center located in Ubud.  The Ark, Bali is surrounded by amazing rice fields and lush jungle scenery, yet still within easy access to the cultural center of Bali, the city of Ubud . Yoga, meditation, friendly faces and authentic loving guidance will greet you daily as you expand your whole-self: heart, spirit, and physical body.  Nourish yourself with three locally prepared meals a day (adaptable for a variety of appetites, allergies/restrictions).  


Explore this lush tropical island, in a safe, fun atmosphere.


We will spend five days exploring culture, creativity, and connection to self, leading up to a two-step Balinese New Year purification process: The traditional Balinese Nyepi is spent as a day of silence and the day after completely centered upon self-love and restoration (massages, facials, body scrub, flower bath, pedicure- the list is endless!).

Day 1 - Self Care
Bringing Health and Restoration to your body and soul

Our morning will be spent discussing essential self-care routines before wandering in town for our own massage or routine of choice.  Our evening will be spent a short drive from our retreat center to a purification ritual at Tirta Empul- the holy water temple.; A perfect beginning for cleansing and setting our intentions for the week ahead!
