The Shala Bali is set in tranquil rice paddy field near the village of Penestanan, but just a 25-minute walk from the center of Ubud. The Shala features tastefully furnished rooms in the Balinese style, a restaurant, pool, and a large, timber-floored, fully-equipped yoga shala.

During the retreat, Flo's focus will be on paring back complicated and unnecessary parts of yoga practice to reveal the true foundation of each technique. This retreat offers a deep insight into yoga for all levels. Those who are experienced teachers regularly come to learn from Flo for fine tuning, to learn the latest teaching tools and tips, and to re-inspire their own practice and teaching, whilst those who are just starting out on their yoga journey will be led into the practice at a level that is appropriate and beneficial.

The program begins on Saturday, September 29 at 6:00 p.m. with opening circle followed by dinner. Program ends with closing circle on the last evening, Friday October 5. You will leave the next morning on Sunday, October 6. There will be a half day excursion on either the Wednesday or Thursday, with free time for the rest of that day.

Sample daily schedule

  • 07:30 - 08:00 Meditation. A variety of traditional, guided sitting meditation techniques (those who cannot sit can lie down or sit with back against wall)
  • 08:00 - 10:30 Therapeutic Vinyasa style yoga asana. Using a flowing, focused sequence of postures, we will address the fundamental asanas to build a deeper understanding of postural bio-mechanics and learn to manage common areas of pain, tightness, and weakness in the body. Though the practice is strength and fitness building, Flo creates a strong focus of awareness on the subtleties of the physical postures, core-strength, and the movement of the breath in the body. There will be alternatives given to those whose injuries or postural peculiarities prevent them from performing a posture with total comfort and safety. This practice will be of benefit to all, beginners to advanced students or teachers.
  • 11:00 - 12:00 Buffet brunch at the venue's restaurant.
  • 12:00 - 16:00 Free time to have a massage, read, swim or explore the glorious environment, with rice paddy walks, shopping, or cultural sight-seeing in Ubud
  • 16:00 - 18:00 Introspective yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, and yoga Nidra. This session will be of particular benefit to those seeking a way to use their yoga practice to relax and "tune-in" at a deeper level. In this session, you will explore various breathing techniques, meditation, and yoga Nidra (guided visualization and deep-relaxation) to bring about a deep experience of connectedness with the very subtlest layers of our being. especially beneficial to those who have had a strongly asana focused practice, or those who have stressful lives, and are not familiar with yoga Nidra. It is blissful!
  • 18:30 Evening meal. You will either eat in at the house restaurant or explore Ubud’s wealth of cafes and restaurants

A half-day excursion is included in the price.

  • Review by a traveler from New Zealand

    "In May I was extremely fortunate to attend the Intouch Yoga retreat in Byron Bay. Flo was highly recommended to me by the Yoga Community in Wollongong many of whom have done retreats, workshops and/or training with her. In so many ways the teaching, schedule, food, accommodation and location exceeded my expectations. As our group consisted of people with varying abilities, commitment and understandings I did wonder on the first night how each of our needs were going to be met. However from the first session Flo was amazing as each and everyone was catered for and our goals for the week were achieved. Flo has a gift of being able to understand and connect with her students no matter where they are on their yoga journey. She is an inspiration!Even though I had some reservations about sharing a cabin with a stranger it was never an issue. My fellow yogis all had a shared understanding of the need for privacy and respect (however when we weren't doing classes we did at times do coffee, walks on the beach and shared many laughs together over the week). In fact Bette, Ali and Kathy and I are planning to return next year!I didn't know how I was going to manage 2 to 3 yoga sessions a day but I was pleasantly surprised how achievable it was due to Flo's expert guidance. The teaching, accommodation, coupled with an amazing location was only enhanced by Veet's cooking. Being a lover of great food and not being a vegetarian I was a tad skeptical about what type of food we were going to eat. But alas Veets cooking was some of the best I've ever eaten in fact I not only bought her cookbook but engaged her to do some catering for me!The experience in many ways has been life changing thanks Flo hope to see you again in December."

    "I've never felt better! The retreat was wonderful. Flo is a great teacher and I really appreciated her teaching style: firm and organized but patient and full of intent. It was always clear what we were doing and why we were there. I liked how she led us through our practice, calmly and with purpose, whether that was asana or chanting or yoga nidra.Watching Flo show us asanas was also wonderful her practice is just beautiful and it helped me visualize what my body might do one day. Veets food was spectacular really interesting and extremely tasty! I think we all looked forward to what surprises wed find at the next meal. On top of it all, the location on the beach made the retreat even more special. It was great to go for an early morning walk on the beach or sit on our patio and listen to the birds. Ive never felt better."

    "I feel more energetic, and with no aches and pains at all! Dear Flo, Just a quick message to thank you once again for the retreat last week, which very much lived up to my expectations. I was particularly impressed by the depth and breadth of your knowledge of yoga, and the excellence of your planning, preparation and presentation of lessons.I expected to be tired and achy by the end of the week, but am pleasantly surprised to feel more energetic and with no aches and pains at all. I'm attributing this partly to the extra time you spent on pranayama and relaxation/meditation compared to other retreats I've attended, but also to the way that you sequence your lessons so that the body is very thoroughly prepared before moving into the stronger asanas. A good lesson for me to bring into my own practice!The food, of course was wonderful, so was the location beside such an unspoiled, uncrowded beach, and the accommodation, I thought, was comfortable and good value for the price.All up, a worthwhile, educative and enjoyable week! Best wishes for the future to you."
