UNWIND, RECLINE & RE-ALIGN
We will stay at one of Bali’s top-rated retreat centers, just minutes away from the famous Balangan beach, a beautiful private resort with private pools, airy bungalows, sprawling lofts, and a hill-top yoga deck with views of the ocean. We will have the whole center to ourselves, with private bungalows, shared rooms, and open shared spaces for meals and lounging.
Enjoy morning meditation on the beach, yoga practices overlooking the ocean, healthy, vibrant meals lovingly prepared by local chefs, and interactive workshops sharing practical healing tools for everyday balance and health. In the evening, chill out or join the fun for kirtan and dancing under the moonlight. Participate in as many activities as you like, lounge by the pool or on the beach, or explore the local villages and cities on motorbikes.
We start the day with meditation and a Vinyasa Yoga class every morning followed by a nourishing breakfast. Depending on that day’s adventures, we will end with a gentle offering of either journal and reflection time or a yin or restorative yoga class followed by kirtan and dancing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We will explore grounding hatha, creative vinyasa flows, energizing kundalini, and relaxing yin yoga practices to cultivate balance within our Body, Mind, and Soul throughout the week. Step freely into your authentic Self through creative movement, dance, asana, and guided free flow sessions designed specifically to integrate your experience into full embodiment.
Ayurveda teaches us how to live a life of connectedness so that we may be the instrument of our empowerment and happiness. During our retreat we will dive into Ayurveda’s framework uncovering your unique blueprint (dosha), the layers of the mind, and how to incorporate these TLCs into your daily life providing nourishment, happiness and connectedness.
A healthy dose of fun is central to TLC retreats. Enjoy 3 cultural & local excursions to expand your joy: A day trip to lush Ubud, including a visit to the lush monkey forest, a Balinese water purification ceremony, a volcano and village bike tour to connect with the locals, and a vibrant night of Balinese dance.
Kirtan is an ancient form of mantra meditation, which has the power to open and purify the heart. Each evening we will dive deep into mantra through meditative chanting, clapping and dancing. Moved by the vibration of Kirtan, musical instruments and rhythmic drumming, you will find your heart and mind unwinding into the experiential states of joy in pure devotion.
From prema breathwork to Kundalini rebirthing, ayurveda holistic health tools, our time together will be punctuated by transformational workshops to support your growth and self-exploration in a safe and uplifting way.

Alexandra’s yoga journey began in her childhood, when during summer breaks in Romania she would meditate alongside her aunt who taught her practices in forgiveness, focused breathing, and energetic visualization. In her teens she took her first yoga asana class and was hooked–finding the practice perfectly suited her passion for movement and dedication to spirituality. After four years of university in Paris, she returned to New York City where she immersed herself in the yogic path with over 1,000 hours of training and teaching various communities since 2010. She is deeply grateful to share the teachings and lifestyle of Bhakti yoga, a path which she believes offers invaluable remedies for the dis-eases of modern life and bows to the many teachers who have guided her ever-closer to understanding yoga, the divine, and how to be of service; namely: her mother, her aunt, Raghunath, Dhanurdhara Swami, His Holiness Radhanath Swami, and His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Since birth, Vasu was raised in the foundational principles of Bhakti yoga through the teachings of HH A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. In his late 20’s, Vasu’s spiritual practice coalesced with his interests in mind-body wellness paving the path towards Ayurveda. In 2011, Vasu began practicing Ayurveda and Marma therapy under the guidance of Dr. Madhusudan Ray and earned a degree as an Ayurvedic Practitioner under the guidance of Dr. Paul Dugliss. As the Founder of Veda Holistic Health, Vasu’s work integrates the science of Ayurveda and Marma therapy to address the challenges of modern living including personalized nutrition, mindful de-stressors and other therapeutic lifestyle choices (TLC). Vasu enjoys traveling around the US and overseas giving inspirational talks in Ayurveda, leading modules in yoga teacher trainings, sharing the sacred heart path of Bhakti yoga kirtan and leading transformational retreats.
