Typically, our guests range in age from late 20’s – to late 50’s and come from all around the world. However, we have had many younger and older guests visit and all have loved their time here. Our guests come from all walks of life; different age groups, nationality, size, backgrounds and goals and we do all we can to foster an inclusive environment, so that no-one feels left out in any way. What unites guests at Goddess Retreats is not so much age or nationality; but rather, a fun-loving attitude and spirit for adventure and all the wisdom they share with each other. We respect all our guests’ varied religions and orientations. While we are a women’s retreat (with only female guests) we do have male butlers, house keepers, drivers, gardeners, security, and surf instructors. Our spa team are all female and our main retreat hosts are also female, yet it is not 100% a female- only environment. This may need to be taken into consideration for some of our guests depending on their religion. Whichever wellness retreat you choose, please be assured that we go above and beyond to help every single guest feel welcomed, nurtured and right at home.

These showers are nothing to fret over, in fact, they can be a blessing in disguise! A great time to indulge in some pampering or shopping!

As this is an all-inclusive Bali retreat, the only things you will need to pay for are personal incidentals, shopping, tips and the 2 meals that are not included in the retreat package (to allow you to explore the fabulous restaurants nearby).

A yoga retreat is a completely different experience from a regular holiday. What makes a goddess yoga retreat such a magical experience? The complete immersion into a week long retreat with daily yoga means that you can focus and go deeper into your yoga and meditation practice. A yoga retreat is a special time for your, a time to reconnect and recharge. Many of us lead busy lives, that are full to the brim with urgent demands and long to-do lists. Often, we can feel as though we are running on auto-pilot, just surviving rather than living a fulfilling life. Sometimes a regular holiday doesn’t leave us feeling refreshed and rested, especially if we over-indulged as a way to relax, or we had to attend to other’s needs at the expense of our own, or because we’re so wound up or burnt out that we have forgotten how to relax. On a Goddess Retreat, we take care of everything for you. We have spent 20 years perfecting the balance of ingredients that go into making a holiday that awakens the body, mind and spirit.

When we’re at home, we may have the best of intentions to create a work/life balance. We plan to go to yoga every day, but life gets in the way of these plans, and we don’t make it to class. A yoga retreat is a beautiful way to get the benefits of yoga. A yoga retreat can help us to reset to our best self. Many of us have experienced major breakthroughs and greater peacefulness from a yoga class. So often guests say, ‘I was really stressed out before I came on your retreat…I’ve had so much pressure at work or from my family, but now I feel so much more relaxed…’ or ‘I feel like myself again!’ The fantastic part of going on a yoga retreat is that these benefits are exponential. It’s not just that we feel good after one yoga class, there’s a depth of experience, that occurs due to the repeated practice over the days of the retreat. The yogic practices of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation work at a gentle but deep level, that you will feel cleansed and are renewed.

We’ve been running yoga retreats for women for 20 years and the wonderful women that attend always impress us. One of the benefits of yoga is that it attracts women from all walks of life, creating a community of like-minded women. It’s called Sangha in Sanskrit. Feedback we’ve received from our women only yoga retreats include: “As well as a deeper understanding of yoga postures, I loved the chance to bond with and get to know other women” “We bonded so well as a group.” “An added bonus is sharing the time with beautiful like-minded women from all around the world…”. Having highly qualified and experienced teachers who truly live yoga enables the transformation. All of the Goddess Retreats that lead the yoga retreats are yoga devotees; this experience means that they are able to transmit authentic yoga to you. It’s not just about being able to make complex shapes with your body. Being a true yogi means that they too are life-long students just like you, so they are understanding and can relate to what you need and what you want to get from your yoga practice – whatever stage you’re at. They’ve all undertaken more than two years of yoga teacher training, are internationally certified and have devoted their life to the practice of yoga.

Absolutely not! Our classes are suitable for everyone! Our yoga retreats focus on finding inner balance and connection and are primarily restorative so it will suit all levels.

While learning anything can be challenging, we make it lots of fun to learn if you are open to the process of being a beginner. You will be with good company and in great hands, so you can relax and enjoy the fun of trying something new!

Goddesses come in all body types, ages and backgrounds. All our activities in our yoga, surf and fitness retreats for women are self-paced and are set up so you can be active in a totally supportive environment.

Food is always one of the highlights on our retreats…some say we should be called Gourmet Goddess Retreats! We will tailor your menu for the week to suit your health and personal preferences.

After your week-long yoga and wellness journey, you’ll feel recharged and ready to face the world again!

Although there are no artifacts or records dating back to the Stone Age, it is believed that the first settlers in Bali migrated from China around 2,500 BC, and by the Bronze era, around 300 BC; quite an evolved culture existed in Bali. The complex system of irrigation and rice production, still in use today, was established around this time. History is vague for the first few centuries. A number of Hindu artifacts were been found dating back to the 1st century (AD), which suggests that the main religion, around 500 AD, was predominantly Buddhist. It wasn’t until the 11th century that Bali received the first strong influx of Hindu and Javanese cultures. With the death of his father around AD 1,011, Airlangga, a Balinese prince, moved to east Java and set about creating unity. Having succeeded, he then appointed his brother, Anak Wungsu, as ruler of Bali. During the ensuing period there was a reciprocation of political and artistic ideas, and the old Javanese language, Kawi, became the language used by the aristocracy. With the spread of Islam throughout Sumatra and Java during the 16th century, the Majapahit Empire began to collapse and a large exodus of the aristocracy, priest, artists, and artisans fled to Bali. For a while Bali flourished and the following centuries were considered the Golden Age of Bali’s cultural history which is still seen today on our many tours. The Balinese are open and very friendly people who welcome tourists to explore and share in celebration of their cultural and spiritual heritage.
