Iyan and Claude first introduced this workshop in Holland, followed by France and Thailand. Now it is also offered in Bali.

For different reasons, many of us human beings visiting this planet for a short period of time have difficulties to imagine living our lives to its fullest, often because we don’t really know what this actually means.

This retreat/workshop is designed to discover the hidden passions within, to draft a fresh road map and to learn how to reach our most valuable dreams.

Claude Chouinard  |  workshop leader

Reaching dreams is not new to Claude Chouinard; over the years he has set many goals and has developed ways to achieve them. “It is not so complicated, it is a matter of knowing what we truly want and believing in the process,” said Claude. One of Claude’s dreams was to create a retreat centre and make a difference in other people’s lives and to remain faithful to the concept of letting everyone follow their own path in a simple and non-dogmatic way. Today ONEWORLD Retreats has grown to be the leader in holistic retreats in Bali. It all started with a dream! Read more about Claude Read more about Claude Chouinard

It was such a refreshing experience to be allowed and encouraged to dream. Everyone was so warm and helpful. It made it easy to focus on myself because I had a safe, loving space surrounded by like-minded people. I loved the Day of Silent and the purification ritual. Wayan”s voice was so relaxing. Thank you so much for being part of my journey.

Julie, USA

It was amazing to take a couple of days to truly unwind, both physically and mentally. This doesn’t feel like a resort or a hotel but more of someone”s home with caring family members. They feed you well, they teach you patiently and they make you smile. These are a key to focus on your dreams.

Philippa, UK

Personally, this is a little heaven on Earth.

Ronald, the Netherlands

It is hard to put such a wonderful experience into words. There is a special energy at Kumara that is peaceful and revitalizing. Thank you everyone who made this transforming experience possible. I feel blessed and I will hold these treasured memories.

More Info


ONEWORLD’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields. And it is probably the only retreat centre in the world with a Palace in its backyard!

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


The meditation and yoga sessions are a soft approach to what may become part of one’s daily life. Through meditation and yoga, people from around the world and all levels of society have reached incredible results in balancing the body, mind and spirit, therefore achieving more focus and being in control over life’s daily events.

The yoga we offer is Hatha and it combines the precision of Iyengar with the dynamism of Ashtanga. Participants are introduced to Pranayama, Asanas, relaxation techniques and rituals. During the contemplative meditation sessions you watch your thoughts, without any intention to either control or repress them. Just simply watch and be aware of each movement of the thought and see them move without you being moved by them.


Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, healthiest and most tasteful meals, infused with love. Your special wishes and dietary requirements are taken care of whenever possible. All your meals are included and most of them are eaten together with the group in the beautiful jungle dining room but sometimes are also served in the privacy of your own balcony or at an outside location. Your personalized itinerary will inform you in detail.


Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapists’ hands. Inclusive is Kumara’s famous 2,5 hours Ayurveda Chakra Dhara Massage. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.


A new retreat happening every week led by experienced retreat leaders from Bali and abroad.
