About this trip

Join Linda and Leroy for a week of taking care of your body, soaking up the sun, and mermaiding around with friends in the loveliest of waves. With 3 Yoga or Hot Pilates classes per day, delicious clean food, and the dreamiest beach in the world, you may also find yourself in the best shape of your life.



The perfect day can begin with a swim in the most turquoise waters you have seen, meditation by the ocean, or a sunrise walk/run along the white-sand beach.

A light breakfast is served, with (amazing) fresh fruit on demand and homemade granola.. 


The backbone of our morning will be two Hot Pilates and / or Yoga sessions at 9:30am. This is usually followed by a dip in same turquoise waters mentioned above.


Brunch awaits an hour after class. Plenty of delicious veggie and gluten free options abound. The resort is famous for their clean and delicious food.


Grab a hammock for siesta, play in the waves, explore the fabulous shops in town, go snorkeling in the famous fresh-water cenotes, visit the Mayan Ruins or better yet, indulge one of the treatments at the spa. You have a good chunk of time in the afternoon to do exactly as you like.


The evening Yoga or Hot Pilates session will be shorter to get us out in time for dinner or a sunset walk on the beach.


Dinner is again with the group. We will not be held responsible for what happens after dinner, but Tulum has the best bar scene (think tattooed mixologists by candlelight rather than spring break hell).


Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and repeat all over again.


All daily Yoga or Hot Pilates sessions will cater to all levels; also, they are all optional. Pick and choose from what is offered based on how you feel - choose a little or choose a lot! Either way, you'll get back home strong, radiant, and grateful. Though mild depression may follow return - we may need to hold local support group with Margaritas for a more gentle reintegration.

First class trip. It's challenging to find words which convey the essence of our trip to Bali. The resort was first class, with beautiful accommodations, a 25M lap pool, spa, delicious meals and attentive staff. Bali itself is warm, the people very friendly and the scenery and experiences range from exciting to meditative. From hikes through the rice fields, delicious food with lots of variety and the best 3 hours of yoga / pilates every day, the trip was a perfect 10. Thanks to Linda for guiding us through special meditations for the trip, to Sam for pushing us through her classes and to Melissa and Miquela for stepping up when the need arose. Would like to attend again in the future!

Very nicely organized trip with Linda to beautiful Bali! It was my first time to a yoga retreat, as well as to the island. The resort's accommodations and service exceeded expectations. Yoga and hot pilates sessions were amazing. We had plenty of time to explore Bali and go on excursions. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys yoga or hot pilates and is looking for a nice reset in a beautiful country. Thank you, Linda!
This is an amazing retreat, in an amazing location, with amazing instructors. You. Must. Go. It's life altering. HIGHLIGHTS The hotel Como Uma is a paradise within a paradise. It's comfortable, easy going, serene, and impeccably manicured. The yoga Linda is clearly in her happy place in Bali, which means the yoga is an out-of-this-world experience. The yoga studio Three sides open to nature, surprisingly pleasant breezes right when you need them. A studio like no other. The Hot Pilates Sam shows no mercy. Expect to work - hard - and be totally giddy with happiness because of it. The group This is my third retreat with Linda. Always an amazing group of people. Good company and a great vibe. Four Hand Massage Yes, it exists. Yes, it's amazing and like nothing you've done before. Go to Putri Spa across the street and be enlightened. WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW The Town (Ubud) The town is in an artistic area, close to the spiritual heart of the island. It's a 20min walk from the hotel, or an easy $5 USD taxi ride. Shopping is prolific and prices negotiable. Food Bali has everything, including an amazing cuisine all it's own. You will eat like royalty and burn it all away in class. The Elephant, about a 10min walk south from the hotel is excellent, with a great view. Hotel breakfast has tons of options and it's all good. Poolside bar has everything you could want if you're too tired to go out, including a juice menu. IT'S ALL GOOD! Water Plenty of bottled water is available at the hotel. Use it. The Yoga Studio has a large 5 gallon dispenser, perfect to refill for workouts and day trips. Weather Expect 85F as the standard day time temp. Various weather mixes up the day, so you can have rain, sun, and refreshing breezes at any given moment. Prices Your money goes a long, long way in Bali. Pack light so you have room to take lots of stuff home. Massages Heavenly and inexpensive. At least half or a third of the price you're used to. Hotel massages are wonderful. Putri across the street is comparable and less expensive. You can't go wrong, but you may have to experiment. Bugs You are in a jungle, so expect more bugs than you're used to in the USA (even Florida) and in more places. That said, not a single bug bite on me. Repel Dry (10% DEET) gave us the comfort of protection, with minimal chemicals, and no greasy or smelly residue. Medicines Bring them, like Pepto, Immodium, etc. You probably won't need them, but having them will give you a level of comfort. It's a jungle and a foreign biome that your body may or may not have to adjust to. Adventure There is lots to do in Bali, from elephant refuges to Monkey Forests, to temples and ceremonies, beaches, hikes, and amazing food, and shopping....lots of shopping. You'll be busy if you want to be, and not busy if you don't. Time Give yourself plenty of time to get where you want to go. Roads are narrow and traffic heavy (but fluid). To go 7 miles can take 30-45 minutes. Beaches are an easy 1.5 to 2 hours away. Don't let it stop you, but plan accordingly. In all, this is the retreat you want and are looking for. You will have a new body, a new mind, and a new outlook.
What a fantastic experience! The resort was lovely, and the yoga space amazing! The people of Bali are wonderful - warm and inviting. There is so much to do on the island. Everything from laying at the beautiful pool with delicious tea, to amazing animal experiences, to sunrise hikes up a mountain (complete with breakfast made in the steam from the volcano!). And of course, the classes from Sam and Linda were top notch. Linda's love and respect for the island and its people are so clear and made me love the trip even more!
Amazing trip- I LOVE Linda and Sam, so they made the trip extra special.
