Bali: Wild and Free 2019
Do you hear it... that whisper in your soul that maybe, just maybe, there’s a vibrant life waiting to be experienced by YOU?!
In our modern world, it’s so easy to lose track of the wild beings that are within us… but what if… if we just prioritized and made space to do so... it could also be *easy* to reconnect to our truest selves?!
"All good things are wild and free."
-Henry David Thoreau
Get ready to experience 10 days (9 nights), in Bali, Indonesia + the nearby Gili Islands to unlock your adventurer, creator, god/goddess, divine being that has been aching to be free’d!
From April 14th to April 23rd, 2019, we will travel to three locations for three nights each, all lovingly curated by Elyza to help you make the most of your retreat to paradise. These are some of my favorite places on the whole entire planet, and I cannot wait to share them with YOU!
[ Part One: Nourish + Relax ]
Pause for a moment.
Take some deep breaths.
You have officially arrived.
There is nowhere to be but HERE!
This first beautiful spot was handpicked as a soft landing for your arrival to Bali, and is designed for you to receive, relax, and get ready to drop in for a week of discovery and transformation.
Indulge in extensive spa services, ocean-side pools, plush accommodations, and healthy plant based foods designed to nourish your body and help you get acclimated to this beautiful country that you have woken up in?! Participate in daily yoga classes and opportunities to connect to your new Bali soul family, with plenty of space to truly rest, soak up some Vitamin D, pamper yourself, explore, and simply be. On our last evening, once you are well rested and ready, we will “officially” begin the journey together in sacred ceremony under the moonlight.
Accommodations: Komune Resort, Bali
[ Part Two: WILD ]
Now that you’re present, let’s have some FUN! It’s time to embrace our WILD on Gili Trawangan, a tiny island off of Bali that we will arrive on after an exhilarating 3 hour boat trip! These next few days will give you space to explore your ability to let loose, get a little wild, and feel life fully from this place of limited rules and maximum inquiry.
Experience the best glamping accommodations the island has to offer, and spend your time biking around the island to different plant-based eateries, shops, and hidden spots. Conquer 108 sweaty Sun Salutations on the beach. Pull tarot under the stars. Spend a day snorkeling (optional add on: diving or scuba), exploring, and getting lunch on one of Gili T’s remote sister islands. Watch some of the best sunsets in Indonesia from your yoga mat. Dance like no one is watching at Gili’s FAMOUSLY epic Full Moon Party, and connect around the bonfire with your soul sisters + brothers.
Accommodations: La Cocoteraie
[ Part Three: FREE ]
End your adventure in the spiritual epicenter of Bali, arriving to a beautiful haven surrounded by lush green rice paddies.
Take this time to step into your fullest self and welcome the magic that Mama Bali can offer, as we re-discover our FREE from within.
Between yoga and delicious plant-based foods, our days will be full of Balinese offerings, massage, and some of the best healing ceremonies that Ubud has to offer… and perhaps, just maybe, your soul will remember what it feels like to, for even a moment, live in divine freedom.
Accommodations: Gaia Retreat Center
[ My Intention + Prayer for You ]
That you leave this time together full. Full of experiences and colors and nourishing foods and emotion. Full of your wildest, freest essence. And that you take it back into the world, wherever it takes you, to shine vibrantly + love wholly + find and refind your bliss everywhere and anywhere you go.

[ FAQs ]
Q: What are the times of the retreat for flight arrivals/departures?
A: Retreat begins: April 14th, 2pm Bali time (Arrive into Bali by 12pm 4/14 if possible)
Retreat ends: April 23rd, 12pm Bali time (Flight home as early as early evening 4/23
Q: How do I find a good flight? What do you recommend?
A: Download SkyScanner and CheapFlights (Apps) to find the best flights for your personal needs... shortest, most affordable, least connections, etc. I flew KLM last time, and also have great experiences with Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways.
Q: Do I need a passport and a visa?
A: YES! You can obtain a visa when you arrive to Bali if you will be there for less than 30 days. If you will spend longer than 30 days there, you will need to get a visa from the Embassy.
Q: How do I apply for this retreat?
A: Fill out the application here! Retreat participants will be selected on a first come/first serve basis on space availability.
Q: How do I know if this is the right yoga retreat for me?!
A: Let your intuition tell you if this is for you. This trip will be unlike any other yoga retreat, and will take a level of stepping out of your comfort zone... so if you are looking for 10 days of relaxation, this may not be the experience that your soul needs.... or it mayyyy be exactly what you (really) need. Also, there will be two travel days built in to this trip, so if you'd like to stay in one location, this also might not be the best fit!
Q: Wait, I have more questions...?!?!
A: No worries... E-mail me at email@example.com!
