Luxury Chakra Retreat with Yoga & Mindful Workshops, Ubud, 17th – 23rd March
Luxury Chakra Retreat with Yoga & Mindful Workshops
This luxury chakra retreat in Ubud will honor the deeply spiritual nature of Bali, or “Island of the Gods,” by offering a series of workshops exploring the Chakra System, the seven spiritual centers in the human body.
A series of mindful workshops will guide you in the exploration of creative self-expression in your life. Every day, you will be guided into awareness and understanding of how these swirling wheels of energy assist you in staying balanced and healthy.
Complimenting the workshops, we will extend the chakra focus through corresponding daily yoga postures, sensory experiences, and cultural local activities.
We will begin the week with the 1st chakra and work our way up to the 7th by the last day, offering a complete immersion into the world of chakras using all the senses. You will surely end the week feeling balanced in mind, body, and spirit.
You will not only enjoy the grounds of the hotel, the outdoor areas, including a lovely pool, patio and lounges, but the retreat also includes some amazing day-trips to the surrounding sites.
A guided day in and around Ubud will lead you through an introduction to the area, the sites and temples. We’ll enjoy participating in activities that mirror the elements for our chakra-themed days, such as visiting the rice paddies (earth), a water temple (water), a Balinese healing and fire ritual (fire), as well as experience the traditional Balinese dance (air).
There will be free time to explore more of the amazing town of Ubud, as well as relax and renew poolside, overlooking the rainforest.
The final full day entails a trip to a luxurious 5* hotel and spa where we’ll indulge in personalized chakra ceremony spa treatments and plenty of time to relax in the lush surroundings – the perfect way to balance out a week of soul-work and mindfulness.
Some of what to expect from the workshops:
Energize & clarify your life vision
Connect with others and this world on a deeper level
Boost awareness of yourself and how you’re creating your life
Change the stories and beliefs holding you back from having exactly what you want!
This retreat is part of our GIVE BACK initiative where we donate at least 10% of profits to a humanitarian partner in the community where each retreat is held.
A daily meditation and yoga class will be offered at the start of the day in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice.
Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.
Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students’ needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice.
Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat. All levels welcome!

What past guests have said
“I know all of us on that retreat are huge Erin fans and can’t sing the EAT.PRAY.MOVE praises loud enough. It is the most incredible way to travel. Erin has every detailed covered and it takes the stress out of international travel. I know I am getting an amazing travel experience at an incredible value. The accommodations are always world-class and the activities and adventures always provide cultural immersion with local experiences. ”

“Thank you for the best experience of my life. Can’t even remember the last time I cried so hard. Mostly tears of joy but also a deep nostalgic longing. You, Julian and all my new yoga buddies are the most wonderful people I have ever met in my life. My time in Marrakesh was unforgettable, I have never felt so happy.”
— Yoryani – Florida, USA
“My wife and I have participated on four EPM retreats. Each time we have been completely captivated by the experience. The locations are absolutely spectacular. The food and wine is local, healthy, fresh and delicious. The daily trips are personal, structured (but not overly so), enthralling, adventurous and chic. This is not your uncle’s travel guide tour. Erin offers an intimate and deeply restorative experience. It is invitation to form lifetime friendships with people who are curious, joyful and fun. Many times we feel like we are not only getting a sense for a place but being invited to peer behind the veil and see what is invisible to many travelers, all informed by Erin’s appreciative eye for beauty, story and style. Finally the yoga is inclusive and healing. I love the music, the settings, the flow and Erin’s ability to meet you where you are at in your practice. EAT.PRAY.MOVE is our first choice for international travel, personal restoration and inspiration. We highly recommend the experience!”. Rene – California, USA
