A "life-changing" experience is what we are used to hearing from our retreat attendees at the completion of the seven days. Many positive seeds are planted and watered during the week, so you will leave energized with a new 'zest' for life.
The "life-changing" True Nature Retreat has been running every month for almost 6 years attracting people from all over the globe. If you don't have many international friends you sure will after the retreat!
The principles of Vastu have been a guiding concept in the design of the bungalows at H2O Yoga and Meditation Center. 'Vastu' is India's ancient Vedic tradition of design, architecture, and sacred space, often called 'the yoga of design'. It is believed to create harmony and health in one's living space. The bungalows are built from local natural materials and have beautifully thatched roofing.
The poolside bungalows offer a peaceful retiring space. H20 Yoga and Meditation provides the retreat participants of the base price with accommodation in the spacious shared bungalow (six beds) with private bathroom. Equipped with fans, and both clean sheets and towels are provided.
There are also deluxe bungalow upgrade options with air conditioning, hot water, ensuite, security box, private verandah, and daily housekeeping.
This unique retreat experience allows you the time to do many things: pamper yourself, slow down, reconnect to nature, reconnect to your own true nature, start listening to your intuition, gain clarity on certain issues going on in your life, stop the self criticism, and start loving your self more and of course feel awesome and healthy!
The True Nature ‘Classic’ is about what a retreat should be about; escaping the bubble you live in with all its pressures, stress, routine, miserable weather possibly, the people who don’t make you feel good about yourself, bad eating and sleeping habits, and coming away to a place such as the beautiful island Gili Air with no pollution and doing physical exercise in the form of yoga, calming the frantic busy mind with some meditation, eating high vibrational food, getting good sleep, building self confidence, recharging your batteries and if possible the hardest thing of all, going on a social media diet!(Turning off the smartphone altogether or at least minimizing a little to bring you into the present moment. And then returning back to your bubble as a new person!
Friday is a day trip on the boat ‘Nemo’ with captain Fikri. Wednesday night is the movie and a curry night.
There is also one optional silent day on the retreat.
We may sound biased but we believe we have the best location not only in Bali, but in the world! Beautiful yellow sand, clear waters filled with marine life. Sunrise on one side, a 20-minute walk to sunset on the other side, no cars, motorbikes, or pollution just bikes and horse carts, it's like Disneyland. And the magnificent H20 Resort center, what more could you want.
It is only a short one hour walk around the outside of the island, and very safe at night time.
They organise transportation from your hotel in Bali and the fast boat, so you will arrive before lunchtime.
The buffet breakfast included in the retreat has many wonderful offerings of muesli, soy milk, raisins, pumpkin seeds, coconut powder and sunflower seeds, brown bread, eggs, and herbal teas. The evening meal is Indonesian varieties with no fish oil or egg for the vegans. At H20 Yoga, they also have their “GOOD EARTH” cafe which has gluten-free, raw and vegan options for sensitive diets if relaxing by the pool for lunch.
Some people like to do very little between the daily schedule and some people like to ‘tick’ all the boxes. There is plenty to satisfy the pallet so we recommend just arriving and then check in with how you are feeling and going from there.
True Nature ‘Classic’ guests receive a 60-minute complimentary luxurious Balinese massage in the H20 day spa. If wanting more treatments you can take 10 percent off all of them as we encourage the process of ‘self-love’.
