Take your meditation practice deeper with 7 Nights in tropical paradise

Join us as we immerse in a deeply rejuvenating & soul inspiring week away in tropical paradise. 

We have planned for you a week of fun, adventure, quiet time, massages and spa treatments, yummy food, laughter, swimming, walking in the rice paddies and on the beach, exploring Balinese culture, dancing, yoga and workshops on cultivating a peaceful and compassionate life.

We will soak in the serene magic this beautiful island has to offer as we immerse in morning & afternoon yoga, tai chi, nia dance & meditation, engage with daily workshops focused on deepening your understanding of meditation, mindfulness and yoga, indulge in pampering and self care rituals, laze, journal, explore, relax by the pool, and maybe sip a cocktail or two as the sun sets. 

The focus will be around discovering and affirming what is it to truly embody PEACE in your body and in your life as we travel through each day with an intention to open to our truest, most authentic self. We will explore peace and compassion in nourishing and uplifting ways as we relax into the beauty, support & transformational healing that such a retreat and location ultimately brings to body, mind & spirit. 

Each day you will have the opportunity to also develop your own personal practice, this is your daily take home practice too to support you stay grounded back it the real world. Later in the afternoons, surrounded by the beauty & sounds of nature, you will experience the complete nurture of restorative yoga & meditation to rejuvenate the body and mind. 

Whilst there will be plenty of time to practice on the retreat, we will also create lots of space for you to luxuriate, rest and rejuvenate with time for you to do as you please. 

We are so excited to be sharing this very special week with you and can’t wait for it to begin!!

Your Journey Leader

Tammie Day, is an Australian counsellor and group facilitator of 17 years. She is the founder of Vibrant Women. Tammie organises retreats and workshops worldwide and has a particular interest in the positive psychology movement, Buddhism and cultivating mindfulness. Tammie is a yoga, nia dance and mindfulness teacher who tries to experience the beauty that is all around.  The Balinese call this “cuci mata” to wash your eyes or to see the ordinary in a new and extraordinary way. Tammie adores Bali and feels it is her second home, and is excited to share some of it’s magic with you. 

The Place

Ubud is culture, yes. It’s also home to good restaurants, cafes and streets of shops, many selling goods from the region’s artisans. The local village of Penestanan where we are staying in is home to “The Young Artists of Bali”.

Ubud’s popularity continues to grow, adding on the hoopla created by the bestselling Eat, Pray, Love.

Once we have had our fill of Hippiesville we will head on down to the beach for more massages, rest, dolphin watching, meditation and restorative yoga, deeply unwinding before heading back home.

The Space

Ubud Villa

Our Villa is located in the compound of the Bali residence of Indonesia’s famous art and craft guru Warwick Purser. Spread over a three-storey building, seven en-suite bedrooms with six double and one twin beds will accommodate us.

The Villa has many little sheltered break out areas over three levels so you can always find a quiet space to read a book or catch up and chat with a friend over coffee.

At the ground floor we will prepare your breakfast in an open-style kitchen and you will be enjoying it facing a tropical garden and a long lap pool. You will find two living rooms – one opened, one closed – and one bedroom. You can even relax at the sauna, which is quite exceptional in Bali.

The first floor gathers three bedrooms – two double and one twin – three salons and a opened terrace. The top floor bedroom – called “The Honeymoon suite” – features a pavilion and open terrace. You will enjoy massages in a quiet atmosphere, close to heaven… On the other side of the pool a small villa houses the additional two bedrooms and small kitchen and living space.

North Bali Beach Villa

For our last three nights we will drive over the volcano to North Bali and three days at the beach.

A unique and exceptional setting on the north coast of the island of Bali strives to provide a balance of modern comfort with nature, tradition and style in harmony with the incredible beauty and traditional village life for which Northern Bali is well known. The small size and seclusion gives an intimate feel and an atmosphere of peace and tranquility… the perfect place to relax.

Just a 3 hour drive from Denpasar airport and a world away from the hustle and traffic of the South and Ubud, set on the edge of the Bali Sea against a backdrop of scenic mountain ranges, surrounded by small villages and local farms. Please note there is nothing to do whilst in North Bali, no shops or cafes, really nothing, its perfect 🙂

Relax by the swimming pool, or workout on the gym equipment or read in the one of the spacious day beds. Have a massage or just do nothing and stare out to sea. North Bali has black stone beaches which can be difficult to walk on sometimes and the ocean can be too wild for swimming but don’t fear we have an enormous swimming pool overlooking the ocean for you and you will experience stunning sunrises and sunsets over the sea and fall asleep to soft, rolling waves. We will dine on the terrace overlooking the ocean. Truly heaven on earth.

This retreat is for you if you want to:

This retreat is not for you if ...

You have recently gone through a major crisis and are still very emotionally fragile – the whole experience may be too overwhelming so it may be best to wait until you have regained some inner strength (feel free to contact us if you want to discuss this)

You are seeking a therapeutic program, this is a skills development retreat with a focus on engaging with cultural activities and self care as well as spiritual practices. This does not mean that you will not experience these benefits we just want you to make sure your expectations match our program outline.

You are expecting to have individual sessions/counselling with the retreat leader, unfortunately time does not allow for this. 

Your health and/or mobility prevents you from travelling to a country such as Bali. The footpaths are very uneven and there are stairs at the accommodation.

You expect Bali, a developing nation, to have all of the comforts and conveniences of a Western country. (The places we stay in are beautiful, comfortable and perfectly suited for a retreat experience but Bali is not a western country so things run differently – I guess this needs to be met with a level acceptance and understanding).

This retreat is designed to support busy women to slow down and connect with themselves, in a beautiful location, in a fun and supportive way, whilst in the company of other like-minded women. Go deeper …..
