About this trip

If the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Bali is dreamy.. lush.. other worldly.. it's all true. Bali is a healing sanctuary. The people and the way they care for each other, guests, the land, and the spirit. It's for a sure a place where you can come and rest your woes and reawaken your senses to majestic living. 


This retreat is a time for you to slow your roll.. to live in the present, be wonderfully pampered with delicious meals, transformative yoga and incredible landscapes. 



low down, feel supported by earth, community, and plenty of time. from busy to spacious - from identifying with all the roles we play in the world to reconnecting with the inner most self. When there is the opportunity 


A day in the life of retreating @ soulshine


You'll wake up to.. beautiful fruit, gorgeous views and a light breakfast. We'll meditate each morning and then practice up in the sky on an open-air pavilion, while listening to the birds and sounds of nature, surrounded by green 360 degrees. (green is so healing for the eyes and soul!) 


Morning meditation + yoga. 

7am - Quiet, deeply calming early morning meditations (20-30 min practice) to tune into your quiet, innermost self. Before the rational mind has time to jump in you will access that still, intuitive place. 

Option after meditation for coffee, tea, breakfast.


8:30am - invigorating, all-levels yoga practices. Begin your day feeling grounded and empowered in your body, mind and heart. Everyday classes will be different, and will weave in strength, stretching, yoga therapeutics, chanting, and creative movement. 


Following yoga is a perfect time for journaling.. so I will offer a prompt each day and you can partake. Of course this is optional. It is all optional really.. you can do whatever you need to do, the entire time you are here :)


The rest of the day.. will offer lots of time to enjoy a great lunch, hang by the pool, or explore around Ubud. Just walking around the town, seeing temples and markets is beautiful.  There will also be options for afternoon cultural exploration - a guided temple tour, visit to sacred water temple, or scooter around to see endless fields of rice paddies.

Late afternoon - workshops including breathwork, yoga philosophy or asana (movement). 

  • Breathwork is a very powerful, clarifying practice I’ve stepped into offering this year and it has been so rewarding to offer, and students have had powerful breakthrough moments with this practice. We’ll have at least 2 afternoon breathwork sessions on retreat.
  • Yoga philosophy - we’ll have one afternoon class where I will share an overview of the Bhagavad Gita, and how this is a deeply practical and resourceful spiritual text at the heart of yoga. This is a much loved offering! Possibly more afternoons of yoga philosophy.
  • Yoga asana workshop- at least 1 afternoon of breaking down an advanced movement posture like backbends or inversions.
  • Restorative yoga at night - most evenings restorative yoga will be offered around 9pm. This is a deeply nourishing practice that helps to prepare you for deep sleep, and is much loved on retreats.

Evenings will be lovely dinners by the pool, great conversation, and relaxation. There is plenty of space to spread out, take time on your own, or hang with the group.



I will leave you with this.. Bali is where I came in 2014 to "do some yoga" and see what this buzz was all about. I had no intention of becoming a "yoga teacher" or really no idea what would come of it, but I knew my current life situation was not going in a positive direction.  I spent 3 weeks Bali and the people, the temples, the richness of spiritual life and kindness and BEAUTY! (it is just SO beautiful everywhere) helped me remember I was not broken. I am part of the human family on this wild journey that is sometimes scary, mysterious, and amazing. But I did come to remember my place in it all, and that my health and happiness is vital if I want to contribute to the world in a sincere way. It was a super powerful trip for me, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to share this majestic space with you, especially at Soulshine!!  This will be my first time back to Bali since (I have been hosting retreats in Hawaii the last several years) and just so excited to be back. I pour my heart and soul into supporting students through the practice, hands on assists, and offering all I can through workshops, hanging out, and facilitating amazing people coming together. 


Also worth noting - I've kept this retreat to just 20 spots because I want to keep it intimate! It will likely sell out at some point as many past retreaters are excited to go to Bali together, so if you're interested,  sign up sooner than later :)

I draw on the contemplative traditions of reiki, meditation, yoga, nutrition, positive psychology and integrative wellness to address the entire human experience - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I teach slow, strong and spirited vinyasa class. Classes are thoughtfully designed to the seasons and time of day. You can expect to chant, sweat, feel your heart come alive and learn new elements of yoga philosophy in each class. I also love teaching restorative yoga and yoga nidra in late afternoons and evenings on retreat.

I had a phenomenal experience at Julie's retreat. The attention to detail and execution were world class. From the meditation to the yoga, each session was guided and instructed with care and backed with a deep understanding of the practice. Julie helped me improve my yoga practice in particular and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have attended. Thank you Julie!

Julie is the best. If you don't like amazing food, incredible yoga/meditation, and rejuvenating hot springs, this isn't the trip for you! Highly recommend any retreat with Julie. You can expect great activities and great people.
This was genuinely an all encompassing amazing, inspiring yoga retreat. Julie and her team brought so much to the table ... literally ... not only were the yoga & meditation classes and daily optional activities so wonderful, the food prepared for us was perfect. I can't wait to make some of the recipes back home. The retreat location was divine as well. Pure "bliss". Thank you, Julie!
Julie puts on the most nourishing retreats you can imagine. She is super thoughtful and attentive to ensure everyone’s needs are met and values when a person prioritizes themselves to get the most out of a retreat. I went to Julie’s 1st retreat in Sonoma which she nailed but to see her growth since then is so enjoyable. She comes up with great ideas and structure during the retreat but it’s presented in a way that is not at all enforced. The food spread is delicious, imaginative, healthy and plentiful. I have been on 3 of Julie’s retreats and will continue to go in them.
Kauai Bliss was a perfect title because there was so much bliss on this retreat: from yoga on the beach watching the waves, to the meals created with fresh ingredients and love, to hikes with an amazing group of women, to peaceful moments reading on the beach or by the pool at the magical accommodation. There were a lot of blissful moments thanks to the efforts of Julie and her team. Julie's authentic teachings, soulful chants, and passion for connection made everyday unique and rejuvenating. A highly recommended retreat to escape winter, experience the Magic of Kauai, and press the reset button.

Since returning from Kauai, I have felt a sense of retreat throughout my days. Peace and serenity weave through my day, easing the stress from work and everyday tasks. I am motivated and inspired to continue what I have learned on the retreat and bring it into my daily life. This retreat showed me what it was like to take care of myself and ultimately how that will help me to take care of those around me. From eating healthy meals, to practicing yoga regularly, to calming my mind and practicing kind observations. A huge thank you to Julie for her care and support during the retreat. It was a treat being able to spend this time with her guiding our group. She was prepared and had lots of information and goodies to share, yet was flexible and open to changing the itinerary based on the needs of the group and the weather. Her knowledge of yoga, the island, cooking, and many other great things kept us inspired and in awe. I would recommend a retreat with Julie to anyone with a curious mind, an open heart, and anyone who wants to truly relax and retreat in a healthy and rejuvenating way.

Julie’s yoga retreat in Kauai was absolutely magical. It was obvious she put her heart and soul into every aspect of the trip from bringing together an amazing group of women to cooking delicious meals to leading us on transformative adventures. Experiencing the infectious passion and energy of her yoga classes daily was a powerful force throughout the trip. The memories from our time in Kauai will stay with me forever!

I couldn’t rave about Julie’s retreats enough. She is the perfect planner and takes all of the hassle out of trip organization and travel with her retreats. From morning practice to meal planning to daily adventures, the February 2018 Kauai retreat went beyond my wildest expectations. Her yoga sessions are the best mix of relaxation and strength. You’ll come away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and in a state of bliss.
