What does the practice of yoga gift us, and what does it allow us to give to others? How do we care for the relationship between our practice and our lives, our practice and our community? If you’re a seasoned yogi or yoga teacher looking to revive the roots of your practice, or a new yogi seeking to deepen your practice; if you’re interested in exploring the teachings of yoga in your day-to-day, off-the-mat experience; if you want to explore the intersection of being your whole self in your yoga practice; if you want to reflect on how your yoga serves your life, and how your life serves your yoga; if you want to practice in community and with two heart-centered, dedicated teachers in Paradise: then this retreat is for YOU! 

Join Adam and Jessica in Bali for a week of dynamic and subtle practices, great conversation and reflection on yoga teachings, and deep, powerful rest. We’ll be staying at the nurturing retreat center, Blue Karma in Ubud, where we’ll enjoy luxurious accommodations, nourishing food, access to Flying Bamboo spa, an open-air yoga shala where each day’s instruction will take place, and an opportunity for communion with nature at every turn. Possible excursions include an early morning hike to watch the sunrise and then breakfast on Mount Batur and an evening of dance and music at a local temple! Don’t miss this opportunity to heal, discover, and even transform yourself in community with two generous, devoted teachers. This is an intimate retreat, curated just for you, and with a set number of spaces, so don’t delay. Book early for the Early Bird deal!
