Flow: A Mama Bali Experience
Real Talk... when's the last time you truly felt in flow with the universe?
No matter how long it's been, Mama Bali is a divine teacher of surrender, healing, and FLOW. This 2020 adventure into the heart of her magic will be an opportunity for you to release control, and find a refreshed way to exist on this beautiful planet.
"Everything is temporary.
Emotions, Thoughts, People, and Scenery.
Do not become attached.
Just flow with it."
If you are feeling her call, it is time to travel across the world to this wild & free land, filled with surprises around every corner.
You will experience three immersive nights in each of these unique locations —
Stop 1: The ocean — Canggu — 7/25 to 7/28
To arrive. To revive. To connect. To release.
Stop 2: The jungle — Batu Karu — 7/28 to 7/31
To challenge. To remember. To adventure. To awaken.
Stop 3: The mecca — Ubud — 7/31 to 8/3
To heal. To nourish. To play. To come alive.
[ Part One: The Ocean ]
Pause for a moment.
Take some deep breaths.
You have officially arrived.
There is nowhere to be but HERE!
We will begin in Canggu, on the west coast of Bali, at a beautiful yoga & detox center on the ocean called Udara Bali.
Nourish yourself with body work, delicious plant-based meals, and a variety of healing yoga and meditation practices. To arrive and refresh yourself after your travels, soak for long hours in the sauna, hot/cold plunge, steam room, and pools of the spa. Dip your toes in the ocean as you watch the sunset, and release your worries.
Once you are fully clear & present, we will connect deeper with cacao ceremony, and truly begin our journey together.
Accommodations: Udara Bali
[ Part Two: The Jungle ]
Next, we will travel to the center of the island and trek up the beautiful mountain of Batu Karu to BATU KARU Coffee Estate, an organic coffee estate where the water runs fresh from the jungle spring, and the food comes fresh from the land.
There is NO cell reception or WiFi at Batu Karu, and we will disconnect from the outer world to reconnect to our deepest, truest selves. Prepare for adventuring through the jungle, sunrise meditations, and green literally as far as the eye can see. Pick fresh fruit from the trees in between some of the best meals of your life. Howl at the moon from the outdoor yoga platform that overlooks the world below. Bathe in the nearby waterfalls and hot springs.
And breathe D E E P L Y. You deserve it!
Accommodations: Batu Karu Coffee Estate
[ Part Three: The Mecca ]
July 31-Aug 3
Finally, we will re-enter "society" via the mecca of healing, Ubud, at a beautiful luxury retreat center named Naya Ubud, near the center of it all.
We will dance with the sunrise & awaken our inner gods & goddesses; opportunities to play will be plentiful. Cleanse in the divine energy of the Tukad Cepung Waterfall, and in the healing waters of Tirta Empul, Bali's most famous (for good reason) water temple.
Somewhere between shopping in the markets and enjoying delicious meals around town, perhaps you'll soften into divine F L O W, and revel in the feeling of ALIVENESS that is available to you, to us, via the divine energy of Mama Bali.
Accommodations: Naya Ubud
[ My Intention + Prayer for You ]
That you leave this time together in your truest flow state. Full of presence and experiences and colors and nourishing foods and emotion. Full of your true essence. And that you take it back into the world, wherever your journey leads you, to vibrate as your highest self + love wholly + find and refind your flow everywhere and anywhere you go.
Once you get off the plane, EVERYTHING you need to have the full experience of Mama Bali will be provided, including all daily meals, exciting excursions, and easy transport between locations.

[ FAQs ]
Q: What are the times of the retreat for flight arrivals/departures?
A: Retreat begins: July 25, 3pm Bali time (Arrive into Bali by 12pm if possible)
Retreat ends: Aug 3rd, 12pm Bali time (Flight home as early as early evening 8/3
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 have flown KLM, Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways with great experiences.
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!
