About this trip

Looking for meaning, clarity, and purpose in your life? Yearning to leave the virtual world behind and  embark on a REAL adventure? Then grab your passport and rekindle your passion for life as we explore this sacred rain-forest together. Join us for 8 days of love and sisterhood under the infinite stars of Mount Batukaru in the Tabanan Regency, Central Bali, away from the busy and crowded South Bali. Take the next step on the journey to a life you love


Your Retreat begins at Alassari Plantation, a luxury estate created by the owners Craig and Val in support of the local community of Biyahan, on the mountainous range of Batukaru. Set in a private coffee plantation and high on the mystical Mount Batukaru in Bali's central rainforest, the energy of this special place is instantly felt upon entering the gates. 


Immerse yourself in the healing stillness of nature as you explore the plantation. Get lost in authentic conversations with fellow pilgrims in our group. Laugh with the locals you meet along the way. Experience unique moments that change your life.

​This retreat is designed for anyone yearning to reconnect with themselves and with nature by way of practicing daily yoga and enjoying the unspoilt sides of Bali. Mount Batukaru is worshiped by the Balinese and is a highly sacred and spiritual place. Restore and replenish your energy with dynamic strength building practice in the mornings and a gentler restorative practice in the evenings.
