About the Retreat
Join our Founder, Natalie Southgate, on a gorgeous week-long Chakradance retreat in beautiful Bali.
This is a rare opportunity to experience the full healing power of Chakradance, led in person by the woman who created it!
At the same time, you will get to explore the beauty of Bali and have some time to relax and recharge at a tranquil and peaceful resort right on the ocean's edge.
The whole resort has been booked exclusively for our retreat, so you will be with a group of like-minded souls, and will also find plenty of beautiful spaces for some private quiet time.
About the Resort
We will be staying at the Poinciana which is an intimate, boutique resort located in North Bali (the quieter side of the island).
It's set on the edge of the Bali Sea against a backdrop of scenic mountain ranges, surrounded by small villages and local farms. You will feel your stress melt away within minutes of being here!
Relax by one of two swimming pools, or go snorkelling along the coral reefs out front of the resort. Paddle around in kayaks and enjoy relaxing massages in peaceful Balinese Huts. Experience stunning sunrises and sunsets and fall asleep to the sound of gentle, lapping waves.
All meals are included. The food is a major highlight at the Poinciana. Great pride is taken in serving fresh food sourced locally where possible, and any specific dietary requirements will be happily accommodated. We will be dining on the terraces overlooking the ocean and in the stunning open-air restaurant with water views.
All of the rooms are simply gorgeous (Natalie personally checked out every single room!). They each have an ensuite bathroom, plenty of space, and that unique Balinese charm and character. They are all air-conditioned and have a comfortable outdoor terrace, each with its own beautiful outlook.
About the Retreat
The retreat will begin late afternoon/early evening on 8th June 2021. We will begin with a gorgeous opening ritual and a candle-lit dinner together.
Over the next seven days, we will explore one chakra each day. This will include a daily guided Chakradance journey, led by Natalie, and all set to music which has all been specifically composed to resonate with each of the chakras. The journey includes meditation, dance, and mandala art making. Each day will also include the chanting of mantras and a mantra-dance for each chakra.
The workshops will be in the mornings each day, leaving time in the afternoons to relax, and to explore Bali through our carefully planned excursions.
We will complete our retreat on the morning of 16th June with a closing ritual and a breakfast feast together, followed by (included) transfer back to the airport, or elsewhere if you'll be staying on for longer in Bali.
These Bonus Experiences are all included:
Blissful Sunrise Boat Cruise
On one of our mornings, we will be taking a mini-fleet of traditional jukung out at dawn to enjoy a spectacular sunrise over the Bali Sea. We might, if we're lucky, get to see wild dolphins at play. This trip is a 6am start, but totally worth it! We will be back in time for breakfast and ready to dance!
Yeh Mampeh Waterfall
On one of our afternoons, we will be taking a gentle 2km walk through plantations and the jungle to experience the beauty and power of this natural wonder. Along the way, our guide will share with us how the forests are respected by the Balinese as protectors and providers, and how the Balinese have traditionally used the jungles for everything from traditional medicines and agriculture to construction and spiritual sanctuary. After we have had our swim under the waterfall, we will head back, stopping in at the Jungle Cafe for a smoothie and some jungle chocolate.
We will discover a little of local culture by going into a nearby village and being shown how to make our own 'Canang Sari' offering. This is one of the most important rituals in Balinese life. We will then take our offerings to Ponjok Batu temple, which is one of Bali’s seven sacred sea temples.
Healing our Chakras with Wholefoods Workshop
In this unique class we will learn more about healing the organs that correlate to each chakra through their signature whole foods. Take away lots of great knowledge and get to taste some delights as well!
2 x 60 minute massages are included in your retreat. You can have these in a peaceful hut by the sea, or in the privacy of one of the tranquil treatment rooms. The spa staff are all highly qualified, with a combination of Balinese and Swedish techniques.
The spa offers other treatments such as facials, manicures etc. should you wish to treat yourself.

"Chakradance in Bali June 2019 was a fabulous Retreat! The attention to detail was impeccable, the meals were healthy and delicious, the rooms clean and comfortable, the staff were incredibly helpful and polite, and the tours were educational and fun!
The location was tranquil and spacious, the massages delightful, the pools sparkling and clean, and programmed activities and free time were in perfect balance! A Retreat not to be missed!"
(Karen Quiros, New York, USA)
"What a truly magical and well-organized experience! I traveled alone, and felt safe and well looked after. Every day was a blessing. Chakradance sessions were beautifully 'held' so your inner journey through each chakra could be explored fulfillingly.
Beautiful fresh food, an amazing location in the true Bali, far way from the hustle and bustle. Excursions captured the heart-centred essence of Bali, with trips to the jungle, an ancient temple and a spectacular waterfall I will never forget. I am buzzing with delight!
