Join Cora Rosen, founder of Moksha Yoga Studio, for an unforgettable and inspirational trip to Ubud, Bali. Set in the middle of the island and regarded as the cultural centre of Bali, Ubud is a magical town surrounded by scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces, and rivers. As we indulge in daily vinyasa, ashtanga and yin yoga classes, fresh organic cuisine, soothing boutique accommodations, and amazing daily excursions & activities, this will be more than a journey of a lifetime!
We will be staying at Soulshine Bali which is a villa, retreat oasis and cafe, nestled between stunning rice field terraces of the village of Ubud and the Agung river. A chic and playful boutique getaway, Soulshine is the perfect escape for a rejuvenating yoga retreat. Chill out with a refreshing juice pool side and enjoy a wide range of Balinese, contemporary organic, or vegetarian delights from the Soulshine Cafe.
