Our knowledgeable and versatile yoga teachers offer a wide range of yoga styles, inviting and encouraging you to explore, play and grow. Yoga styles incorporated into the daily classes include a wide variety of Vinyasa Flows, from slow, deep and soothing to vigorous, energizing and playful flows, FlyHigh Yoga, AcroYoga, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Yoga for Surfers, Yin, and Restorative Yoga. Specific areas can be worked upon request and one on one private session can also be requested.
(ACRO) YOGA WORKSHOP
The Retreat includes one themed yoga workshops, AcroYoga being one of our favourite themes. Great for all levels! AcroYoga is a physical practice combining the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. AcroYoga builds strength and flexibility but most importantly trust and teamwork. And it is also just a lot of fun!
With water temperatures averaging 28C/84F and consistent surf all year round, Bali is truly a surfer’s paradise. And with Canggu as our home base, we have breaks and waves, swells and tides almost all year round – suitable for all levels. And, when the conditions are not right at our home breaks, we search along the magnificent Bali coastline! With more than 60 waves less than an hour away we can always find the best wave for your level.
Your first surf session is on us, included in the standard Serene Retreat package. If you want to surf more, or want to explore different surf breaks, we offer very affordable, great value for money, add-on surf packages (please inquire). We offer the highest level of professional instruction and surf guiding with our preferred local surf partner.
Our surfing program allows you to progress at your own pace throughout the week. You will always feel supported and safe learning at your correct level – whether you have never surfed before or are already an experienced surfer. You will receive personal attention at all times, with individual feedback provided throughout each session. We are always aware of up-to-the-minute conditions—swell, wind and tide, and we take you and your level of skill to the right spot at the right time – from easy beach breaks for beginners up to reef breaks for more experienced surfers.
The Serenity Eco & Yoga Retreat offer the perfect opportunity to learn how to surf in a safe and supportive environment, or alternatively explore the amazing variety of surf breaks Bali has to offer.
On a hot Bali day (and it’s always hot), play like a kid in the cool water, surrounded by mountains and tropical palm trees overhead. The waterfall is isolated but has become popular to explore and relax. Near the waterfall, several shower baths from natural hot springs have been created. For photography lovers, you should come with your camera!
Bali is often referred to as the island of “holy water” because of the countless number of sacred springs in Bali and because holy water is the key element in purification ceremonies. Water represents the flow of energy (also known as prana or chi), connected to emotion and intuition. Spiritual cleansing ritual (Melukat) is part of Balinese Hindu life (Manusa Yadnya). Its purpose is to purify a human body and soul (as opposed to the cleansing ritual for a building or temple). It is said to wash away turmoil and sickness acquired from negative karma in both this life (prarabda karmaphala) and past lives (sancita karmaphala), and these rituals are believed to assist in cleansing our bodies on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Enrich your knowledge of the tropical fruits, plantation, and spices. A traditional cultivator will serve you a young coconut as refreshment after demonstrating coconut climbing.
Natural Spring Water
Heated deep within the earth, the healing mineral water is colourless and odourless from the source that is located on the property. For hundreds of years, this clear carbonated water has created legends of miraculous curing powers. The Natural spring water would be perfect for a relaxing dip after a long week of retreat.
MAY OUR FOOD BE YOUR MEDICINE
The retreat includes two daily vegetarian meals from Serenity’s in-house ‘Warung’ featuring healthy homemade meals – Alkaline Restaurant. Breakfast is eaten together around 9 am, and a buffet style dinner is served at 7pm. Additionally, Alkaline is open all day offering meals, healthy snacks, fresh juices and desserts. Alkaline caters for Vegans and Vegetarians, with no MSG or chemical enhancements used, but meat and fish is an option as well.
