Come To Your Senses, Bali!

In Beautiful Bali
June 23 - 29, 2013
With Stacy Sims

Come to your senses in Bali, a magical island steeped in Hindu spiritualism, for an amazing mind/body retreat. Bali naturally inspires healthy living, yoga and movement, meditation, healing and adventure. We have taken the best of Bali and crafted a multi-sensory experience so we can journey together toward a reawakening of our best selves.

Your movement itinerary includes True Movement, a yoga-inspired somatic practice to rediscover flexibility, balance and strength, plus guest class with local, internationally acclaimed teachers, meditation, and energy work.

Your mind-blowing Balinese experience begins when you are greeted at the Denpasar airport and whisked to serene Ubud, the cultural center of Bali. Your beautiful Ubud bungalow is nestled near the Monkey Forest and awaits you along with two vouchers for Verona Spa. There you can soothe your jet lagged muscles with a massage, herb scrub and flower bath.

Then, you’ll be ready for your 5 day, 6 night Come To Your Senses adventure.
