Bali Soul

Sister Retreat

June 22-29, 2019

Women of all ages and walks of life are invited to come together and share in sacred connection. If you’re looking for a luxurious getaway with special time for YOU to revitalize and replenish, then this is the retreat for you!

Embark on a journey of discovering yourself in the magical land of Bali: a place of divine devotion and glorious celebration! The people, beauty, and culture of the island will capture your heart. We will stay in Ubud, which is the spiritual and cultural epicenter of Bali. This trip will offer daily group activities, but also free time to venture out and experience the powerful transformation of travel and immersion in different cultures.  

 

Tristina & Alice have an especially deep-rooted connection with Bali, having initially met there many years ago. They have each spent a great deal of time traveling, studying, and teaching yoga in Bali. 

Why join us?

It’s simple! This is the PERFECT environment to spend some much needed time re-energizing yourself while creating meaningful bonds with other women. Your body and mind will slowly unwind with yoga/meditation, delicious local food, and doses of nature everyday. Share time with a diverse group of women in heartfelt conversations, fun activities, and empowering group circles. 

 

Expect to feel reconnected with what's most important to you and how to manifest more of this in your life. Learn a system of how to align yourself, both on and off the mat. We will explore the deeper aspects of why yoga really works and put that wisdom into ACTION. Take home a renewed sense of empowerment and lasting friendships with a tribe of women you can call family!

Our Stunning Property

Our retreat property is hidden away behind the Monkey Forest, amidst the local village of Nyuh Kuning, We will have the ENTIRE property for our group! This is the ideal home base for our week together, as it is away from the hustle & bustle, yet just a short 10 minute walk into the heart of Ubud. The grounds feature a swimming pool, terraces, an open-air yoga shala, beautiful gardens, and large green spaces that are perfect for relaxation and reflection. Immerse yourself in the peace and tranquillity of this stunning location.

 

The traditional Balinese design of the property incorporates elements like bamboo, carved teak furniture, silks and batiks, statues, and water ponds/fountains. We will be surrounded by spectacular views of the lush garden, jungle valley, and terraced rice paddies. All rooms are hotel-style accommodations with in-room air conditioning and private ensuite bathrooms.

We will enjoy our breakfast in fellowship as a group each morning, seasoning our food with laughter, connection, and stories from our adventures. The remaining meals are open, allowing you to discover the delicious cuisine.

Yoga & Activities

Each day begins with meditation and pranayama (breathwork) to ground and connect you within. Take your practice to a new level with twice daily yoga in a variety of styles suitable for all levels (Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin/Restorative, Yoga Nidra, and Myofascial Release).

About Us

Hi, we’re Tristina & Alice! We met in Bali in 2010 when we unrolled our mats next to each other during a yoga teacher training; the rest is soul sister history. Over the past 7 years we’ve met up for more training, traveled India together, spent many months visiting one another, countless Skype sessions, and have been there for each other through the ups/downs of life. We believe in the necessity of female connection. While we will both take part in leading practices and activities, you will have full access to both of us during the retreat. It has long been a dream to host this retreat together, and we are so excited to share this one-of-a kind experience with you!

Tristina is based out of Sacramento, California, where she lives with the man she loves (who’s also a yoga teacher!) and the cutest-ever toothless Yorkie named Dolce. She has an unwavering thirst for travel and leads yoga workshops, retreats, and trainings worldwide. Learn more about Tristina here.

 

Alice happily resides in her home of Guernsey, Channel Islands. She teaches weekly yoga classes, Yin Workshops, and SUP Yoga during the summer time. Living on a small island, she takes the opportunity to travel and attend trainings as often as possible. Learn more about Alice here.
