What You’ll Experience in Bali

Bali is a world-renowned yogi paradise. But, for The Travel Yogi, it’s just paradise. Brimming with culture, mysticism, magic, and nature, this yoga adventure is for the beach-loving yogi seeking backroads biking, ocean vibes, and cultural exploration. We don’t care how much you’ve practiced breath of fire, Bali’s beauty will truly take your yogic breath away. Learn more about our Bali yoga retreat.

How You’ll Experience Bali

Our Bali yoga retreat adventure is a journey filled with wonder. We will take you off the mat to experience the rich and luxurious beauty of Bali—from its people to its many sacred temples. You’ll explore by bike, wave, tastebuds, and foot across the island, imbibing in the ancient and magical energies. Dine with locals, rejuvenate in the healing waters of the ocean, and witness verdant hillsides and green rice terraces. You’ll have time to relax, explore, imbibe, and mingle with new friends and travelers—and, of course, integrate it all on the mat. 

How You’ll Feel When You Return Home

When you get home (unless you decide to stay!) from your Bali yoga retreat you’ll have a little piece of magical, soulful, iridescent Bali in your heart to match your memories and photos.  Expect body and mind rejuvenation and residual happy vibes from this magical island.

Melissa is a yoga, meditation and reiki teacher based out of Hartford, CT and has been sharing these beautiful healing modalities since 2012. Melissa loves helping others live authentic lives filled with love and connection through yoga, meditation and reiki.

Years ago Melissa found herself in a rut struggling with anxiety, insomnia and chronic neck pain. Going through the motions of life frustrated and unhappy, one day she asked herself “is this as good as it gets?” The universe seemed to respond quickly as she soon found herself in a yoga class breathing, twisting and turning without a clue as to what she was doing. After that yoga class, the light bulb went off as she walked out blissful and hopeful! Melissa had no idea that she had just taken her first steps onto a new path that would completely reshape her life. Melissa was hooked, and that feeling has been bringing her back to her mat every day! Melissa began practicing yoga and meditation regularly and could see that her life was changing, she was sleeping better, was less anxious and her neck pain disappeared. In a short amount of time, she was feeling fantastic and truly enjoying life.
