Yoga, Culture & Balinese New Year - Waitlist only!

Join Erika Trice for a weeklong retreat at a beautiful location nestled in the center of Bali, Ubud. Our home for the week is a perfect environment for expanding your practice and classes will be designed in harmony with this auspicious time of year. You will dive deep into the Balinese culture and learn about the significance of their New Year and its unique rituals, while embarking on an exploration of asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy. Each day will be a mixture of both practice and participation as you experience the distinctive ceremonies done in preparation for the day of silence. This is Erika's 5th time leading this retreat in Bali and each time has offered a unique opportunity for students to both strengthen their yoga and intimately experience this heavenly culture

 

This is truly one of the most incredible weeks of the year to be in Bali as they prepare for the Balinese New Year, called Nyepi or "The Day of Silence." For the Balinese, it's a time for self-reflection and cleansing as they observe 24 hours of total silence, preceded by firecrackers, singing, laughter, parades and general excitement everywhere. It’s an unforgettable experience to witness the whole island shutting down (no electricity, no driving on the roads, no one working) and to be a part of this powerful ancient tradition. We, as guests, will also take part in the authentic Nyepi rituals and celebrations, which happen just once a year. It's truly an experience that will invite you to go inward and stay with you forever.

 

The Bali Institute, Ubud’s premiere cultural organization, will guide us on exclusive immersion experiences to some of Bali’s most colorful markets and sacred local temples. We will observe ancient spiritual practices and meet community leaders and dignitaries to develop a better understanding of this unique culture.

FAQ

What airport do I fly into?

You will book your international ticket into and out of Denpasar (airport code: DPS) to Arrive on March 12th and Depart on March 19th.

 

If you wish to arrive a day early to settle in and get acclimated, we can request additional nights at our group hotel. Please contact us directly for rates. 

Do I need a Visa to visit Bali?

No, if you are planning to stay in Indonesia for under 30 days, the visa on arrival is free and the departure tax is also waived. 

 

If you plan to stay longer then 30 days, you will need to obtain a visa before leaving the US. For more information on this, please visit the Embassy of Indonesia website.

 

IMPORTANT: If your passport expires within six months of your arrival date to Indonesia, please be sure to renew your passport before you go to avoid any issues at immigration. There are no exceptions.

What if I am traveling alone?

We get hundreds of travelers each year who go on retreat alone. If you are traveling without a friend or partner, but prefer to share your room, we will do our best to match you with another traveler of the same gender. If for some reason, we are not able to match you with a roommate, a single supplement will apply. 

 

If you prefer to have your own private room, a single supplement will apply. 

What vaccinations do I need?

There are no required vaccinations for travel to Bali. However, there are some recommended (suggested) vaccinations given by the CDC. To see the complete list of what is recommended please visit the CDC Website and consult with your primary care physician to make a decision on what is best for you.
