Join Stacey Shaw June 8-15, 2019. During this 7-day retreat, we will drop into a healing space in order to rejuvenate and cultivate calm and joy. Come prepared to unplug and immerse yourself in the incredible landscape of Bali and the enchantment of this beautiful retreat center. We will begin our days with an optional mediation and energizing yoga class and we will end our days with a relaxing yoga class. Classes will be infused with intention and inspiration to connect, to open, to play, and to ground in a strong sense of Being.
Every retreat is unique and, as such, the itineraries are ever-changing! We finalize the itineraries about 3-6 weeks before the retreat, but after 10 years of hosting retreats, we do have a general idea of what most schedules look like.
Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.
In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!
Again, this is a very general look at what your retreat schedule could be. We work closely with the teachers to design unique itineraries that reflect their style and the group that’s traveling with them. Once your specific retreat itinerary is complete, we will send it out via email, usually two or more weeks before the retreat starts. Please keep in mind all retreat itineraries are subject to change.

The retreat will be held at a boutique hotel and yoga retreat oasis located five minutes outside of the village of Ubud, Bali in Indonesia. The center is dedicated to creating a place of happiness where groups or individuals can come to relax, adventure, deepen their practices, eat great food, play in the sun and get back to being themselves.
Enjoy a chic yet unpretentious mix of modern and traditional Balinese design, nestled between a serene river on one side and ancient rice terraces on the other. All of the staff on their amazing team come from nearby villages, and will make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The open air yoga studio is on the third floor of the main villa with breathtaking views of rice terraces, traditional temples, coconut trees, and the jungle canopy. After yoga, cool off with a dip in the pool or enjoy a massage, facial or full body treatment in our spa.
The fresh, organic food is a highlight for all of our guests. All the produce is organic and comes from the retreat center’s garden or the local market. A delicious blend of Balinese and Western cuisine is served in the open air, bamboo roof dining area, crafted amazing local chefs. Vegetarian, vegan, and non-vegetarian options are served alongside an amazing array of colorful juices, smoothies, beer, wine and tropical cocktails. Upgrade to Raw meals during the retreat for an additional charge. Juices and other specialty drinks are not included in the retreat package.
Stacey began practicing hot yoga in 1996 in a small town in Western Colorado. Over the next fifteen years, she continued her practice, branching out to learn more styles, to learn form more teachers, and to experience many studio locations. In 2012, she began her training as a teacher of Jaya Yoga, a style of vinyasa. After completing her 200RYT in 2014, she began teaching regularly. Her classes offer a sanctuary to fully connect with the body, to slow the mind and to experience the Essence of one’s own Being. Stacey is currently completing a doctorate degree and she brings a professional background in education and an understanding of anatomy, trauma, psychology and energy work to her presence and practice as a yoga instructor.
Thank you so much for being such an inspiration for me!! You are such a beautiful and lovely lady. I know late is better than never , so am finally taking the time to place more focus on developing my own personal yoga practice and am half way through my first yoga teacher teaching training course in Barcelona. I can’t thank you enough for opening my eyes to the possibilities of what could be. I hope you are well and are continuing to spread your enthusiasm for life. Many thanks, you are truly appreciated. ~Danielle Young , 2014 retreat participant at Prana del Mar
