A week-long yoga retreat in Bali, where we combine daily yoga with attention, time and space for you to fully immerse yourself in vacation mode.
It’s time to get away from all the daily routines that have taken over, and finally start creating space to take care of yourself properly. You might discover a lot of new things, both internally and externally, the moment you start listening more to the sounds that resonate within you.
Take advantage of all this free time in a new environment to have a ‘beginners’ mind – approaching everything with openness, eagerness and a lack of preconceptions – just as a beginner would look at the world around them.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at one of the 3 yoga retreat weeks in Bali at Alila Manggis.
Book now while we still have space available and start looking forward to that well-deserved me-time.
See you at The Sounds of Harmony Yoga Retreat in Bali!

Sounds of the Sea on the paradise Island of Gods, Bali!
We welcome you on the starting day of the retreat. Check-in is always on Monday from 14:00 onwards. Check-out is on Sundays before 12:00. The general itinerary is as per below.
Joining a yoga retreat is a perfect excuse to get back to basics. Society almost expects us to be available 24/7 with a lot of distractions from our modern ways of communication. How much time do you spend on social media or glued to your phone? This is a chance to switch off and be in the moment, away from digital distractions!
Take the time to learn to be conscious of the moment you’re in and increase mindfulness. We can often find ourselves living in the future as we plan ahead, and in the past as we feel with what has happened throughout our lives. On this yoga retreat, you can just BE.
If you find it impossible to silence your mind, always thinking of the next thing on your to do list then this retreat is a great opportunity to stop overthinking. You get to turn off all the noise of your own voice and open yourself up to a more positive way of thinking. The retreat incorporates time for meditation and you can speak to our teacher about helping you to harness your thoughts.
If you struggle to find time to practice yoga in your everyday life then the benefit of going on a yoga retreat is being able to practice every day without distraction. Even the most seasoned yoga practitioner can deepen their practice on retreat and aim to reach the next level.
The traditional benefit of yoga was instilling the mind, and going on retreat will allow you to focus on this more deeply. Instead of coming relaxed out of a class and going back into your busy home life you now can carry that calmness with you throughout the rest of the day, and the retreat in general. The retreat will give you a space to meditate fully, without any distractions.
If you are experiencing stress from your current situation you can take a step back and evaluate where you are from a distance. When you are too close to the situation or fully in it, most often it is difficult to see the actual problem or find out in what direction the solution might be. A retreat can give you the benefit of distance in order to re-evaluate.
Attending a retreat can give you a new perspective, whether it’s about your own life or through learning about a new culture. You never know what you can learn from others that can affect your future choices, or make you see your own circumstances in a different light.
The vegetarian food offered on our retreat is chosen with care for your health and wellbeing. It is an opportunity to eat well without having to worry about it yourself, and it’s a habit you can take home with you.
Yoga is not only about physical poses, it is just as much about the mind. You’ll be given a chance to connect more deeply with yourself through practicing yoga and understand more about this ancient art.
It is a vacation with the benefit of improving your health. When you leave, you have exercised your body and relaxed your mind, feeling healthier in both.
Give yourself an opportunity to truly relax and make time for yourself. Planning a vacation can be hard work, and it’s difficult to disconnect and really restore your energy reserves when you are out on a mission to tick boxes of the must sees. On a retreat you focus just on the retreat... and you will return home feeling refreshed.
In addition to the surprise activity that is included in this yoga retreat, you can always book additional excursions (surcharge applies) through the reception desk of Alila Manggis. Among the offerings are e.g. Trekking trips, Deep Water Fishing trip, Snorkeling, Sunset boat trip or a Balinese Cooking Class.
(A supplement of 35% applies when booking for only 1 person)
Blessed with gorgeous panoramic oceans capes, Bali’s eastern coast is a popular destination among tourists seeking to catch the most amazing sunrises and sunsets. The seas here are as calm as a lagoon when you visit just before dawn. Rent our Jukung a traditional wooden boat, and cast off from the beach out on to the water to witness one of the most beautiful sunrises across the whole island. Marvel the view from the ocean of majestic Mount Agung being bathed in the first light of day as you pass by the three small Gili islands off the coast of Candidasa.
Alternatively, instead of Chasing the SunRISE, head out later as daylight wanes and watch the sky transform into a brilliant mural of sunset hues. You’ll return to shore with not just beautiful pictures but memories of a truly magical experience. What better way to end your day?
Ride our Jukung just across from the hotel to a small but colorful reef just off the coastline, or be driven by car to the Blue Lagoon area The first trip leaves at 9 am and the second at 11 am, subject to suitable sea and weather conditions. Life vests are also available upon request.

If you prefer bottom fishing, Snappers, blue coral fish and scribbled filefish are teeming under the sea. You can also bring along your own snorkeling gear to enjoy some deep sea swimming.
This trek crosses through numerous rice terraces and small farms allowing you to truly appreciate the native landscape of Bali. The trek also takes you up and over a number of hills that offer great views to the sea, before finishing at the fascinating ‘Bali Age’ village of Tenganan famous for its double Ikat weaving and unique basket making.
Visit the doctor, Bali style! Meet the Balian Healer, a spiritually gifted man known as the local Balinese Balian or healer from Perasi Village, East Bali. The Balian has been the focal point of healing in Bali for centuries, usually using herbs for massage to heal your aches and pains.
Join us in the Balinese Hindu rituals with a Purification at Tirta Sudamala. A cleansing ritual using spring water within the temple to get rid off physical and non physical impurities. The Balinese Hindus use this holy water not only to purify the body, but also for the purification of valuable things such as buildings, vehicles and other equipment.
An unforgettable spiritual trek to the holy hill called Lempuyang. Start your trek at Jumenang from where you can see Mount Agung and Lombok island. Receive a blessing at a small temple before stepping on to the holy mountain and continuing through Pandan Forest where you will see many kinds of tropical botanicals and animals. On reaching the top of Lempuyang Hill, rest and enjoy the view. Our concierge will assist you to dress in full traditional Balinese sarong in preparation to visit this special temple, Lempuyang Luhur and meet the local priest for a Hindu blessing. Afterwards, as you climb the many steps down again, our concierge will share with you the unique story of holy water in the holy bamboo of the temple.
Understand how the cycle of daily life translates to the plate in traditional Balinese dishes. After an early morning breakfast, experience the amazing sights, sounds and aromas of Klungkung market, one of the busiest village markets in East Bali.
