Most of us lead very Yang-oriented lives, adding some Yin into our practice and daily lives helps to restore calmness, stillness, and happiness.
Throughout this retreat, we will blend Yin and Yang to experience the benefits of both styles. Each day will be different, with its own theme. In the Yang phase, we will cultivate balance and strength through dynamic and active sequences while in the Yin sessions, we slow down for a quieter practice to work our joints and calm the nervous system. The yoga offered is accessible to all levels of practitioners.
Combining the daily yoga sessions with a myriad of activities, ceremonies and rituals, enjoying delicious healthy food and blissful spa treatments, this retreat will leave you feeling balanced, energized and of course, happy!

Experiencing a day in silence
Today is a day for contemplation and to concentrate on your inner self. Silence helps one to reach a different level of consciousness and a better understanding of the self. The results are usually very enlightening and can be amazing.
Optional activities with extra cost
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. This 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 12 comfortable and spacious rooms, a dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a treatment center 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 your free time, we offer a shuttle service to the center of town.
Each room is air-conditioned and 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.
Our experienced chefs cook fresh, healthy, and delicious dishes, infused with love. All dietary requirements can be catered for. Most of your meals are included and are eaten together with the group in our beautiful jungle dining room, or can be served on your private balcony. Some meals will be at outside locations. Your personalized itinerary will include details of all meals.
Part of your journey includes receiving healing treatments from our skilled therapists. Some treatments are inclusive in your retreat. Other treatments are available onsite—see our treatments menu.
The yoga offered during this retreat by Marleen and Wayan is Yin and Yang, a mix of yoga styles – Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, and Yang. It is accessible to all levels.
Yin qualities are related to lunar energy and have feminine energy with a cooling effect. It is immobile and downward-oriented. The Yin parts of the body are the connective tissue, fascia, bones, and joints. During the Yin sessions, we slow down for a quieter practice to work our joints and calm the nervous system. By holding poses for a longer period of time, mostly sitting or lying, we will release into each pose with mindful awareness of the sensations and thoughts that arise.
On the other hand, Yang's qualities are associated with solar energy and have masculine energy with a heating effect. It is upward-oriented and mobile. In the body, Yang qualities are found in the muscles, blood, and skin. During the Yang sessions, we will cultivate balance and strength through dynamic, active sequences (accessible for all levels). Working on a muscular level, we will focus on breathing and flowing from one pose to another.
Throughout this retreat, we will blend Yin and Yang together so you can learn to experience the benefits of both yoga styles. Every day, we will follow a different theme, such as preparing your physical body for a peak pose, concentrating on a certain target zone, or focusing on a chakra or one of the five elements. Each day will be different.
Yoga retreats are led by our in-house or guest yoga teachers. Each teacher offers different styles of yoga, teaching and experiences—some retreats include trips around the island or a deeper dive into your personal development. As part of your retreat you will have a choice of Ayurvedic or traditional treatments and be served delicious, healthy meals throughout. With a variety of retreats on offer you can find one that is perfectly suited to your needs.
A Panchakarma Detox Program is directed by our Ayurvedic doctors, who upon arrival will assess your bio-energy (Dosha) and create a tailored program to restore balance and address any health conditions you may have. While you will still practice yoga, it is a softer form of yoga as during a Panchakarma you can’t exert yourself too much. Similarly, during a Panchakarma gentle walks around the surrounding area are fine, but trips into town or further away should be avoided as external stimuli can affect the healing process.
You will have twice-daily Ayurvedic treatments and eat a variety of nutritious and balancing Ayurvedic meals as prescribed by our doctors.
Once the reservation is confirmed we send an information email to our guests. It is necessary to bring your own yoga clothing. There are clothes designed especially for yoga, stretchy top, and pants. However, one can practice yoga without these. A t-shirt and pair of shorts are fine for yoga. If the retreat includes a blessing ceremony we suggest that you take along a white shirt with sleeves.
We have enough yoga mats at the centre, yet you may want to bring your own. We also have a shop selling an assortment of eco-friendly TPE mats and Natural Rubber mats, as well as yoga clothing and supplies to assist you in your yoga practice!
Not all yoga styles practiced in the retreats are suitable for expecting mothers. Of course, you may join a retreat, but we strongly recommend that you get approval from your doctor beforehand. During the retreat, you can adjust your poses based on your capability but it is important that you understand that you are responsible for any risks you are taking.
The yoga retreats are open for people aged14 years and above.
