We have created the Serenity Eco Yoga Retreat where yoga, nature, culture, food and people all come together to create a unique life-changing experience in Bali, Indonesia. Escape to a serene eco paradise full of transformative yoga sessions, healthy and delicious vegan meals, soothing massages, and sunny surf sessions!

Set in the harmonious surroundings of Canggu, Serenity Eco Guesthouse is only 150 metres away from the beach where there are some of the best surf breaks in Bali. We are proud to offer one of the most affordable retreats in an eco-friendly and health-focused environment on the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia.


P R O G R A M

The Serenity Eco Yoga Retreat Package includes two daily yoga sessions, offered each morning or afternoon for all levels - beginners as well as advanced yogis. Live the best version of yourself and indulge in a Balinese massage, group surf lessons, and a workshop on how to make Balinese offerings called Canang.

On the next day, we will bring the Canang we had created before and drive to a Balinese Holy Water temple for purification ceremonies. These rituals are believed to assist in cleansing our bodies on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Ever heard the saying, "you are what you eat"? Our restaurant Alkaline serves vegan and raw dishes designed to detoxify your body. The Raw & Vegan Cooking Class held on the fifth day will help you familiarize yourselves with raw food. After the class you will be able to recreate these meals for your loved ones at home!

Lastly, let us take you on a tour around our humble permaculture garden where you will learn about medicinal plants, composting, warm farming, and tips on how to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. This retreat is made for those who would like to step back from their busy lives to reconnect with nature and themselves :)

Our highly experience yoga teachers tailor the yoga programs to your personal needs by providing modifications and adjustments to suit everyone’s ability.

Surf

The Serenity Eco Yoga Retreat offesr the perfect opportunity to learn how to surf in a safe and supportive environment, or alternatively explore the amazing variety of surf breaks Bali has to offer. Your first surf session is on us, included in the standard retreat. If you want to surf more, or wanna go explore different surf breaks, we offer very affordable, great value for money, add-on surf packages (please inquire).

You will always feel supported and safe learning at your correct level - whether you have never surfed before or are already an experienced surfer. You will receive personal attention at all times, with individual feedback provided throughout each session.

Canang Making

Immerse yourself in Bali and the culture by creating your own traditional Balinese offering called "Canang Sari" in this retreat. Canang is one of the daily offerings made by the Balinese to thank the Hindu Gods in praise and prayer. Canang sari will be seen in the Balinese temples (pura), on small shrines in houses, the sidewalks, steps, statues, and on the ground or as a part of a larger offering. In Balinese culture, the Canang has a very important meaning, we can say that Canang is the "main thing of offering". Any biggest offering/ceremony will not be complete if it doesn’t use with Canang Sari. Canang sari is offered to the God everyday as a form of grateful and thanking for the peace which is already given to the world.

Spiritual Cleansing

Bali is often referred to as the island of "holy water" because of the countless number of sacred springs in Bali and because holy water is the key element in purification ceremonies. Water represents flow of energy (also known as prana or chi), connected to emotion and intuition. Spiritual cleansing ritual (Melukat) is part of Balinese Hindu life (Manusa Yadnya). Its purpose is to purify a human body and soul (as opposed to the cleansing ritual for a building or temple). We will ask you to bring your Canang that you made the day before to the temple as form of offerings to the Hindu Gods.

Raw and Vegan Cooking Class

Whether you wish to expand your plant-based horizons or just want to dive straight into some delicious dishes with great company, our Raw & Vegan Cooking Class will make you learn how to prepare some of Alkaline's healthy plant-based dishes and recreate these meals for your loved ones at home. You will prepare your 3-course meal in our fun and relaxed restaurant – from Appetizer, Main Course, to Raw Dessert. Once everyone has finished their dishes to perfection you will sit around the tables and enjoy the fruits of your labour in true dinner party style – a great class for anyone, whether you’re a committed vegan or would just like to brush up on your plant-based cookery!

Serenity Permaculture Garden Tour

Permaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the "no waste, closed loop systems" seen in diverse natural systems. As our property is based on these principles, we are keen to spread all the knowledge on how we practice the ways of permaculture through years of trial and error, and without the use of expensive technology. We'll guide you around our vast garden of plants and herbs surrounding the vicinity where you will gain extensive insights on their beneficial properties; discover how composting is done, and attain knowledge of how to covert leftover rice to natural pesticides for the plants.

Balinese Massage

Balinese Massage is a full-body, deep-tissue, holistic treatment. Balinese massage uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure, reflexology, and aromatherapy to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and "qi" (energy) around your body, and bring a sense of wellbeing, calm and deep relaxation. At Serenity, our massages use a variety of techniques including skin rolling, kneading and stroking, and pressure-point stimulation, combined with the aromas of essential oils.

Movie Night

Kumare is a 2011 documentary film directed by and starring American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi, who poses as an Indian guru to satirize the New Age movement. The movie is about a man who impersonates a wise Indian Guru and builds a following in Arizona . At the height of his popularity, the Guru Kumare must reveal his true identity to his disciples and unveil his greatest teaching of all.
