Bali Institute for Global Renewal
Bali Institute for Global Renewal (BIGR) has been working closely with International Yoga for more than five years. This special partnership creates a unique opportunity to expand a typical yoga retreat into a culturally-transformative experience. Participants are introduced to the indescribable beauty and amazing manifestations of ancient wisdom woven into daily rituals and ceremonies. We'll begin one day by exploring a traditional early-morning market and then move on to one of the oldest temple sites in Bali to meditate and share breakfast with the gods. Another day will bring us to one of the oldest palaces in Bali, to have a personal tour and tea with an extraordinary young prince who is helping to shape the future of Bali. Optional side trips include meeting the master healer of Bali, evening Balinese dances, and other memorable experiences. Bali Institute
