This week was so much more than I could have ever hoped for. The teachers were incredible, the food was great, I learnt so much and improved my practice, the classes were also a lot of fun. Everyone is so friendly and I had the best time with my group. I couldn’t have wished for more. If you’re thinking of booking, know that it’s not a decision you’ll regret ! Thank you to the incredible team, I’ll 100% return.

This place is better than any rehab, hospital, meds, therapy, diet or anything you could possibly ever try for improving your mental health. It is healing in its purest most gentle form. I was the best version of myself that I have ever been when there. It changed my life forever, please go.

Shanti Toya is incredible place! I was looking for yoga retreat and found so much more! ♥️ There are yoga classes 2x a day with various instructors and various yoga styles which gives a deep understanding about yoga and the teachers are helping to reach higher understanding of Yoga itself. The place is surrounded by beautiful greens, it’s like a hidden gem, there are no noises besides from the nature, which is amazing 😻 The rooms are quite basic but that gives extra touch as we are not there for physical pleasure but rather (...)

I spent a week in this beautiful ashram and everything was simply perfect. The location is quiet and peaceful, yoga classes were excellent and the food was delicious. Hosts were very welcoming! It seems like people who come there are also very special, kind and friendly. I made lots of friends. I really had a great time and learned a lot! Can’t wait to return ❤️

This was literally my first yoga retreat experience in my LIFE and I couldn’t of asked for a better first intro. From the food, to the staff, to the rooms, the pool and the setting, everything was amazing. I really loved how they immersed us into the culture, we got to make jamu and learned how to make offerings. I felt like I was part of the family even after just a few hours being that and I got to make a life long “brother” after meeting a Widi. Can’t wait to go back again and visit when I’m in Bali in 2021! 😍

This place was exactly what I needed! Would highly recommend. Kalina and the staff are so genuinely kind and welcoming. The yoga is fantastic. The food is is all vegan and so delicious. The scenery is so beautiful and serene, the perfect place for meditation, healing, and relaxation. I got to do and see so much as well as learn so much about Balinese culture. I also met some incredible like minded people which I think made the entire experience. No one was was cliquey or gossipy, everyone got along with one another and it was just all good vibes.
