Shanti Toya Ashram (www.shantiretreatsbali.org)

Shanti Toya offers an authentic taste of Bali, nestled in the quiet hillside of a lush jungle ravine and surrounded by the rice paddy farmlands of Penarungan Village. We are approximately 15 minutes southwest of Ubud, a city-center highly regarded and sought after by yogis worldwide as the modern hub of the yoga community.

The property itself is home to a peaceful gurgling river and an abundant holy spring water source. In addition to the four new accommodation villas (each with guest rooms/bathrooms) & two private villas, there is also a beautiful second story thatch-roof bamboo Yoga Shala, communal open-air dining/lecture hall, reception, store, spring-water fed swimming pool, bale, and organic vegetable garden. Just outside the ashram is plenty of nature-walking opportunity through the quaint village and beautiful rice paddies.

Shanti Toya Ashram is an intimate setting, perfect for such smaller retreats of up to 14 guests; which we believe allows for a richer experience, more personalized attention, and authentic friendships to form between retreat-goers.

Yoga

All yoga sessions during the retreat will be lead by Mahayogi Gokulacandra Das and Pablo Maha. It’s a unique opportunity to share your yoga practice with such Yoga Masters.

Morning and evening sessions will be based on Hatha Yoga. Topics of four workshops will be: Chest Opening and Back Bending (Jani Jaatinen) and Hip Opening and Yoganidra (Pablo Maha).

All levels are most welcome. The teachers will guide you so you can go deeper into your yoga practice.

Meals

All your meals are included and most are served at the Ashram. Organic ingredients from our permacultural garden will be used to prepare vegetarian and vegan dishes served on “table d’hôte”. Selection of tropical fruits, healthy juices, herbal teas and best Italian coffee will also compose the menu.

Our chefs will make sure about your likes and dislikes!

Spa

Leisure time will be filled with sensual, luxurious experiences in the Ashram’s Spa. For your choice there will be Ayurvedic, Balinese or Deep Tissue massage, foot reflexology, facial treatment and manicure/pedicure- all with pure, natural products.

Our experienced terapists will help you to relax and heal.

Balinese Experience

During your free time we would love to offer you a genuine cultural experience by introducing you to local customs and places of interest that you will not find in guidebooks. Learning the art of preparing offerings to the gods and preparing traditional healing beverages (jamu) will allow you to shed the tourist skin and feel like a local.
