About this trip

Dive into the Five Elements of Yoga by immersing yourself completely into Balinese culture and personal growth within your own practice. Each day will be dedicated to one element, and each day will be an opportunity to explore both on and off of the mat. 
Enjoy a balanced retreat that weaves together adventure, introspection and connection on the sacred Island of the Gods. 

10% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to Go Light Our World (GLOW)’s solar projects across the globe. Not only will you be investing in a life-changing experience for yourself in a beautiful location; but you will also be giving back to impoverished communities around the world, as well.

I never thought I would live such a transformative retreat when I registered... A (re)connection at so many levels. Five days of amazing yoga practices led by the beautiful and inspiring yoginis Kayla and Aubry 💚, chilling, surfing, laughing, sharing with all those wonderful Goddesses. My heart is full of Love and unforgettable memories of this new but eternal sisterhood. Thank you Kayla and Aubry, thank you my everlasting Glow Yoga family for being who you are, for spreading Love. I love you Forever Elodie

Everything about this trip and experience with GLOW Yoga was uplifting. Overall, Villa Mandala, Surf Maroc, and their staff (especially Caz and Miriam) were incredible and attentive, finding answers to our many requests. The chefs did an excellent job serving us three vegan meals a day with lunches to go while we were out on our adventures! Surf Maroc sent drivers for us on various occasions and were happy to help arrange any service from surfing lessons to massage. We loved the villa, the pool, and the shala just as much as we liked going out on excursions that Surf Maroc set up like Paradise Valley. The daily yoga and meditation were some of the most connected I've been to myself in a long time. It was so healing, humbling, and necessary to be the student for a week and not the teacher. Kayla's verbiage takes you to another place when she's cuing and Aubry's fiercely loving meditations hold space for hearts to open. I learned so much more than asana. Thank you for all of it!

Amazing. Great food. Beautiful aesthetic.

I had an amazing time volunteering! It was a bit unorganized at times with pick ups and getting to the clinic, but that’s understandable for it being the first project. I loved staying at lotus shores. The yoga was fantastic, the food was amazing, and it was so peaceful. Everyone I met was so wonderful and made the whole experience even better. The volunteering aspect was so rewarding and I loved being able to be a part of such an amazing cause. Overall it was an amazing experience and I’m very greateful to have been a part of it! Thank you :)
Extremely grateful to have found this trip via Kayla and Kindred Connection, but this particular week was extremely unorganized...this was the feedback felt by other folks during the week as well. Mix-up with the volunteer dates: most people anticipated the project ending on October 31 (not the actual October 30) this can alter flights, accomodation, your deposit and balance due. Kindred Connection Street Dog (& Cat) majorly lacks monetary transparency. From volunteer sign up costs, money raised online, to local donations at registration desks - none of it is calculated and posted for transparency: this really confused me as I was chased and shamed for money after thoroughly communicating in advance my change in volunteering dates - there needs to be 100% transparency when running an NGO as this is the major issue with all of them globally. There wasn't much work to do when there wasn't a clinic day which can be frustrating for folks who show up really wanting to contribute. It wasn't specified in the description that there would be specific clinic days (the dates and village locations are organized on posters and advertised online and in the towns, so look out for them on instagram (@puppypuddlesiargao) and be sure to show up on and around the surgery clinic days) It seemed like more work could have been organized beforehand for volunteers during the days when the pop-up spay/neuter clinics were not active. There also isn't any mention on WeTravel of the two major animal foundations that Kindred Connection is partnering with locally - Philippine Pet Birth Control Center Foundation (the veterinarians from Manila) and Puppy Puddle Siargao. There isn't any wish list posted and if you ask via email in advance you're asked just to bring cash donation. If you are traveling from a developed country, it is very easy and cheap to bring crucial materials like; an animal specific shaving razor, surgery instruments, gauze, medical tape, surgery drapes and the like....even collars and leashes would really be useful to bring and donate as many locals do not have the money for leash and collar for their pets and it's MUCH safer to have these on the animals while they are waiting for surgery and when waking up after surgery. I spent most of my time with the doctors and was told they desperately need certain items as their tools rust & burn out quickly and are all usually donated second hand as they are expensive on these islands. Cash is spent for vaccines, syringes, veterinary flights, food etc. This was extremely frustrating to learn - i could have brought a lot of these items from NYC, if only a wish list was researched & prepared in advance! Lastly, although we sign a waiver with the risks involved, it should be reiterated in the WeTravel description and in email to have at minimum, your anti-rabies and tetanus shot vaccination up to date. The work is super risky even if you are comfortable working with animals in stressful situations. Much love, DZ
