Retreat & Rejuvenate: Balinese New Year

Join Erica in celebrating the rich culture and beauty of Ubud during the Balinese New Year. This retreat wonderfully combines deep yoga practice and potent relaxation. Our home for the week is the perfect tranquil setting for self-exploration and embodied movement. We’ll tap into our physical potential through daily asana, pranayama, and mindful meditation practices. You will learn about the Balinese culture and the significance of their New Year and its unique rituals. Each day will be a mixture of both practice and participation as you experience the distinctive ceremonies done in preparation for the mid-week celebrations of Nyepi, the Day of Silence for the New Year. For the Balinese, this is a potent time of year for self-reflection and cleansing. They observe 24 hours of total silence, preceded by firecrackers, singing, laughter, parades, and general excitement everywhere.

 
The Bali Institute, Ubud’s premiere cultural organization, will also 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. Don’t miss this opportunity to get away for a week in paradise with Erica!

Erica Treais-Holm
Erica has always had a passion for movement. Though initially resistant to yoga, her mother encouraged her to practice Ashtanga regularly as a young athlete. While living in Chicago, she fell in love with cycling and power vinyasa, using both as tools to express and redirect her inner fire. Progressively realizing that the intellectual benefits outweighed the physical benefits, Erica's teachings continued to shift with the power of self-study. Erica is an RYT-500 instructor currently sharing her love for well-aligned movements in Detroit. She approaches her classes with a devotion to exploring the physical potential and the potency of breath-work. Constantly weaving the threads of other movement modalities into the yoga practice, she pulls great influence from her weekly Iyengar practices a... Read More

FAQ

What airport do I fly into?

You will book your international ticket into and out of Denpasar (airport code: DPS). If you wish to arrive a day early to settle in and get acclimated we can request additional nights at our group resort. Please contact us directly for pre-night stay 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 also the departure tax is 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.

Are airport transfers included in the price of my trip?

Yes, private airport transfers are included in the price of your trip. Whenever you arrive, day or night you will be met by a private driver and transported to the group hotel. Note if you arrive early and decide to stay at an alternate location other than our group resort, you will be responsible for coordinating and paying for your own transportation directly with the hotel where you will be staying.

Do I need vaccinations?

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. 

What are the accommodations like?

Nestled on the hillside, between sky and earth, in the middle of verdant rice paddies, our charming eco-lodge is waiting for you! Traditional Javanese huts are remastered in a modern fashion to make your bedroom a uniquely beautiful and comfortable place. Resort facilities are designed for guest comfort and needs, from 24 hours front desk service, swimming pool, spa, restaurant, fully equipped yoga shala, and wifi internet access.

Are gratuities included?

Gratuities are not included in the price of your trip. Service charge is included in all restaurants-bars etc, however if you receive exceptional service by staff, housekeeping or other employees helping you throughout the week then an additional tip is always appreciated. We suggest a budget of around $5-$10/day per guest.

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. 

How many people are expected on this retreat?

Attendance varies from trip to trip, but 15-25 attendees is a general average.

 

Do I need travel insurance?

All payments to International Yoga are non-refundable & non-transferable. The purchase of travel insurance is strongly recommended to ensure you are covered should any unexpected event arise. A personal, political, environmental or weather-related incident or pre-existing medical condition may prevent or interrupt your travels.  These events are rare but do occur and underscore the importance of being covered by travel insurance.  Should you elect to not purchase travel insurance, you will be assuming 100% of any costs incurred for trip cancellation or trip interruption. TravelEx  and World Nomads are two reputable organizations. There is a broad spectrum of policies and options so make sure you are clear on what exactly is covered.
