50% off first retreat booked

Bali Lush Retreat Center Take the road less travelled and bring your guests to Bali Lush. Far from the madding crowds and nestled in a valley of rice terraces,

Bali Lush makes for the perfect retreat. You get exclusive use of the property which allows your guests to fully focus on the purpose of the retreat. No mini marts, touts or hawkers. Just you, your guests and a dedicated team of locally employed staff to help you put on a truly memorable experience.
The 1 hectare property, is located in a traditional farming village, in the Tabanan province, which is known as the rice bowl of Bali. It is 2.5 hours from the international airport, 2 hours from Ubud and 1.5 hours from trendy Canggu.
 An assortment of traditional antique teak 'Limasans' and 'Gladaks',  have been brought over from the island of Java, lovingly restored and furnished in a 'Colonial Romance' style. For the comfort of your guests all guest rooms come with modern amenities; aircon, ceiling fans, 5 star hotel bedding, mini bar, in-room safe, television and DVD player. 4 guest rooms can sleep up to 14 guests. We have a 5th room available which can take an additional 3 guest making a total of 17 people.
We like to keep food miles low and are growing as much of our own produce as we can. We encourage you and your guests to pick your own fruit from any of our 200+ tropical fruit trees. Select your own vegetables and collect your own eggs from our hen house for your morning breakfast. Our staff make fresh bread daily and many other bakery treats such as crumpets, sweet breads and cakes. Coconut milk and spice pastes are also made fresh for authentic Balinese, Indonesian and Thai dishes. Western, gluten free, and vegan options also available.
Enjoy daily walks through rice terraces ,to nearby waterfalls and be greeted by the friendly Balinese as they go about their daily lives. Indulge in a massage or lounge by the heart shaped pool. We can also arrange a range of tours and local activities.
We are currently building a new multi purpose dining, meeting space and yoga practice area. The 56m2 space will comfortably accommodate up to 17 people practicing yoga. Send us an email for photo updates of the new building.
Discover the Real Bali and host your next retreat with us at Bali Lush.

Sedona Yoga Hiking
Join us to celebrate the Spring Equinox or Mothers' Day, March 18-22 or May 6-10, with a transformational Sedona-Grand Canyon YogaLife Retreat.  Sedona is magical with towering red rocks known for mystical vortex energy.

This uplifting retreat includes Yoga practice indoors and at Sedona's sacred vortex sites with leisurely, guided nature walks. Our Yoga is gentle and meditative with focus on spirituality and self-reflection. Enjoy a full-day excursion to the the Grand Canyon with lunch. Pamper yourself with courtyard lodging, breakfast, and pool at the elegant Arabella Hotel in mid-Sedona with trails, restaurants and shops in walking distance.

Our retreats listed first in Sunset Magazine's "10 Inspirational Retreats" and were featured in the Yoga Journal following a June 2016 visit from its Live*Be*Yoga Ambassadors.  

A guest comments:
"Warm, sunny, wonderful yoga and spirituality at the vortexes, Native sites, with wonderful hikes and excursions. It was much more than just a retreat from the demands of everyday living--it was a rejuvenating time of looking inward, reflecting and transforming. Johanna is an insightful teacher and guide, and she plans just enough active time with quiet time. One of the best retreats I have done!"  Eileen Crone, ERYT-500

Protect Your Moments
Boldly Going Nowhere Retreat

Boldy Going Nowhere
Shannon Plummer and Bob Sima have branded their retreats with a title that often creates a moment of silence followed by a chuckle. Boldly Going Nowhere. At first introduction, it does sound pretty funny. An image that comes to mind is someone trying to go down the up escalator. Once it starts to sink in, it typically instigates a curious tilt of the head or an inquisitive side-eye to the sky. Your body and your heart and your soul shout, "YES... That is exactly what we need to be 'doing' every moment of every day!" And that is precisely what Boldly Going Nowhere is about. Because the play on words becomes Boldly Going NowHere. Now Here. Become a fierce protector of your moments. Each moment. Each now. Each here. Every now here. Every nowhere. Boldly Go Nowhere with us this summer in northern Georgia.

A Path to Joy
Unreasonable Enjoyment Retreat
