This is NOT your average yoga holiday...
I've been running this retreat for two years and I just haven't the words to explain how special it is. I work with the wonderful team at Villa Selat to create a luxury bespoke retreat for just ten of my students. You can't spend a week here without feeling quite a profound change. Come with an open mind and experience the transformation.
Your accommodation is Villa Selat: located in the heart of the jungle, about 30 minutes drive from Bali's spiritual home of Ubud. It is one of my favourite places on earth. This luxury villa comprises several buildings that host spacious rooms - all with double beds, powerful rain showers and the most beautiful sunrise views.
There are plenty of local hikes and waterfalls to explore in the area, but the gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the treetops makes the grounds the perfect place to relax and restore.
The 24-hour onsite staff are all from the local village and are the kindest and sweetest of people. They keep the houses clean and gardens beautiful. The attention to detail makes this place so special. They will invite you into their culture through ceremony, ritual and conversation. Staying in Villa Selat, you feel part of something very special. There is a delicate and harmonious balance here, quite unlike anything I've ever experienced elsewhere. I feel honoured every time they let me into their world.

Your retreat includes two 90 minute classes a day. Rocket, Yin, Mandala and vinyasa are all on the menu as well as daily guided meditations.
Every year I write lesson plans and every year I thrown them away.
I tailor the classes day to day based on the energy and needs of the group. If you have specific things to want to work on, we can add a workshop into the schedule too!
I’m all about plentiful eating, especially when the food is so fresh and healthy. Dewa is the villa chef and an absolute genius, creating the most delicious and healthy food. We have a hearty brunch after morning practice, a light snack, mid afternoon and a three course dinner after evening yoga!
Included in the price, we will also take you out for two dinners so you can experience some of the amazing restaurants that Ubud has to offer.

What other people say...
"Helen's retreat in Bali was everything I needed and more.
All of this: the best food I've ever eaten, sleeping so well, feeling like I could be open and totally relax and practising in such a playful and nurturing way each day had me leaving retreat feeling the healthiest I have ever felt and so happy and grounded. She really created and cultivated magic."
"I was on Helen's Bali retreat last year and words cannot describe what a nourishing experience it was. Immersed in magnificent nature, surrounded by jungle and waterfalls this wasn't just a yoga retreat it was a transformative experience. Thank you, Helen and Villa Selat Team!"
"It was honestly a life changing experience for me.
It was very emotive and healing for me and I know that others on the trip felt the same way, I thank Helen for her amazing energy, attention to detail and caring nature throughout the trip."
"Helen’s retreat is an incredible experience for practitioners of all levels, a fantastic way to step out of your daily routine and be thrust into another world. Part education, part holiday this retreat is both a solstice for personal growth and a beautiful alcove for relaxation. The practice is varied and engaging, set within a safe and nurturing environment. The retreat is an incredible opportunity to learn and move, but also to explore Bali."
"Helen is able to meet you at your current skill level and make the necessary adjustments for your practice. It is clear she is in love with her teaching and it is a very intuitive process. She is authentic, humble, and a joy to be around.
The opportunity to practice and learn in a beautiful environment is not to be missed!"
