So, picture this,

Waking up to the soothing sound of the river gently flowing by, feeling the warmth of the sun as it rises, and embracing the day with a complete yoga practice is a perfect start to any day. It’s a moment to connect with the natural world and ourselves, setting the tone for a day filled with positive energy and self-discovery. The workshops that follow are an opportunity to delve deeper into your passions and to reignite that spark for life that may have dimmed over time. There’s no pressure, just a supportive environment where you can explore, learn, and grow. It’s a chance to hit the reset button, to find our groove again, and to connect with a community that shares your enthusiasm for life and personal development.

"Not your typical yoga and meditation retreat"

About our venue - Yama Balian

Our philosophy is a barefoot luxury. It is located in the beautiful and mystical town of Balian, right in front of Bali ́s sacred river mouth, and at a hearing distance of the ocean. Yama is immersed in a dense tropical jungle. It’s the perfect place for tuning in. This is the purpose of Yama. 

To help people connect, discover the tools that will allow this connection to happen and be maintained. A place where you come to learn balance, connect with nature, and share with others.

A temple to find your balance with community in nature,
a place for right living

Food Experience

Food is a vital part of any Yoga retreat and at Yama Balian we take it very seriously. Experience the real nourishment of healthy and energizing food. Let us delight you with our daily cooked, balanced delicious meals to support yoga and exercise. Tasty meals with local products, that are both nutritious, wholesome and revitalize the body.

Our culinary offer is one of the highlights the Yama experience. For breakfast you can expect to help yourself with Yoghurt, almond and soya milk, granola, smoothies, fruits, jammu and other energizing plant-based elixirs. Fresh fruits, tasty nuts, herbal teas and fresh coffee throughout the day as well as at breakfast.

For lunch and dinner, our chefs treat you to a varied buffet of culinary delights. To give you an idea of what you can expect we would offer tasty dishes based on grains such as cuscus, quinoa, polenta, fresh salads, falafel, noodles, hummus, vegetable lasagna, and a variety of vegetable dishes. We also love vegetable soups such as Gazpacho, mushrooms, pumpkin, carrot, and other seasonable vegetables and finishing it with tasty and healthy desserts.
Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. We can happily, look after you here.
