Join Yoga Guide Magazine in Bali with LA Yoga Instructors Katie Nesbitt and Oona Barry for the ultimate 8-day Yoga and Surf Retreat that will leave you relaxed, recharged and filled with new vibrant energy. This retreat will end on the Fall Equinox, giving you the perfect chance to embrace change and a new start with the new season.
Join us on the “Islands of the Gods” for an artfully balanced retreat to experience the adventurous and spiritual soul Bali has to offer. We will go outside of the resort for some amazing adventures to explore this beautiful island and dive into the Bali culture for a unique experience. During this week-long retreat, you will disconnect from your day-to-day life and discover the magical island of Bali while reconnecting to your true self.
Komune Resort was carefully selected as our location for this retreat as it provides an experience like no other in Bali. All who visit this piece of paradise are in awe of its beauty – ultimately leaving relaxed, sun-kissed and dreaming of when they’ll next return. With its pristine volcanic beach, this beachfront Bali resort offers a wonderful experience in a natural luxury hotel.
This Yoga & Surf retreat will offer twice-daily yoga & meditation classes within two breathtaking yoga spaces. Imagine splitting your time during the week between a large state-of-the-art yoga studio within the private Komune Resort area; while the second open-air yoga shala overlooks the ocean and include crashing waves in the background to put you into a state of pure bliss. Yoga classes are for all levels and offer a gentle vinyasa flow sequence for you to enjoy.
Located in Keramas, Bali, the Komune Resort has four world-class surf breaks and offers one of the few permanent night surfing installations right in front of the resort. You can enjoy the amazing spectacle of surfers battling the waves at night, or even book a night surf for yourself under powerful floodlights. Bookings ensure there are only 6 surfers sharing the waves each night, so you can enjoy the powerful right hand breaks off Keramas reef without the crowds. The Night surf shows are on every night from 7pm to midnight, as well as 4am to 6am for those who like a truly early morning surf. Many nights Komune Resort features a night surfing display put on by one of the local Bali Boardriders clubs, which include some of the world’s best surfers.
Throughout this retreat, you will also have access to Komune’s new fitness facility and health hub, as we recognize you may want to extend your physical activities beyond yoga and surfing. During your downtime you may also choose to enjoy one of two pool areas during your stay. One of which is situated beachfront at the Komune Beach Club – which was voted one of the top 5 beach clubs in Asia. Or relax by their second beautiful and serene outdoor pool located within the quieter health hub area.
Beginner yogis and surfers encouraged to join as yoga classes will be appropriate for all levels and one surf lesson will also be included.
