We invite you to come with us on a sacred journey. A deep, inward going, restful retreat, which is also full of adventure and special moments. A time to be with yourself, as well as celebrating life that is so abundant in Bali.
Explore the unique yoga style we have developed through years of studying different yoga modalities around the world. Jenny will guide you with her characteristic softness and gentleness. She is deeply present in her teaching. Our classes carry a feeling of strength and awareness, weaved in with stillness and a healing touch during rest.
NORDIC LIGHT HEALING SESSIONS
Based on Craniosacral therapy* principles, Johan will guide you to subtle levels of your being, allowing you to rest deeper into yourself.
Bali carries the profound presence of Hindu religion and culture. Through excursions you will get to know the Balinese culture and way of life. We will introduce you to a beautiful Hindu ceremony and we’ll visit a powerful, auspicious temple for purification through holy water. We will have the honour to meet and receive a beautiful talk by one of our revered Yoga Guru’s, Swamiji.
REST AND RELAXATION
In the retreat package, a massage is included, during our stay at the beach. Also we will enjoy another relaxing spa day in Ubud. This will include a massage, body scrub and flower bath. We will go to a beautiful natural spa that uses their own homemade organic products. There will be also enough time to enjoy other treatments of your preference during your holiday.
Bali is well known for its tasty cuisine. You’ll find an abundance of tropical fruits, juices and special health drinks, as well as Vegan and Raw food delights. During our stay in coastal Balian, we’ll be served tasty, healthy Balinese food at the resort. Ubud is famous for its culinary offerings. We have selected our favourite restaurant spots to share with you.
We are very excited to share the incredible Bumi Yatra’s “Jungle and Infinite Waterfall Trek”** with you! Guided by Swedish Ingela and her Balinese partner. They are very enthusiastic about sharing the beauty of Bali. We’ll trek through mesmerising waterfalls and jungle landscapes.
*The purpose of Craniosacral therapy is to connect you to the «breath of life» your body’s innate power and capacity to heal itself. This therapy works with a light touch that helps the nervous system relax and your whole body to unwind, which allows for a new level of deep rest throughout all the layers of body, mind and emotional being.

The first part of the retreat will be about grounding, restoring and nourishing. The water element will be very present, as we will live right by the ocean. We’ll stay in a beautiful Beach Resort, with its own private beach and two other beaches within walking distance. Here we’ll dive into the healing elements of Nordic Light Yoga. There is also lots of time to enjoy the beach, have sunset walks and special Kirtan (group chanting) as the sun sets.

The second part will be about further discovering the magic of Bali and it’s spiritual aura. We have chosen the experiences that we love most about Ubud. We are staying in a lovely Balinese inspired guesthouse, close to city center yet in a peaceful part of town near the beautiful rice fields. We’ll spend a day at the spa, take a rice-field walk, eat amazing food, go on a jungle trek, meet Swamiji and visit a precious, purifying water temple.
