PROGRAM

YOGA

Sara and Tomas will lead you through two yoga classes every day. You don’t need to have any prior yoga experience, the group will be small and the classes will be designed so that beginners as well as experienced yogis will enjoy them.

Morning classes will focus on getting your body moving, your energy flowing and prepare you for the day ahead. Starting with a gentle warm up and breathing exercises, we will gradually move through sun salutations, vinyasas and asanas focused on different areas in our bodies (backbends, hip openers, inversions) and wrap up the class with a relaxation.

The evening classes will be more yin-style: slower and gentler, designed to help you to wind down after the day and prepare you for a deep and restful sleep.

JOURNALING

Every evening we will gather to journal on different topics that will help us to dig deeper, get to know ourselves better, nourish our souls and express ourselves. We’ll be going through a variety of easy and fun journaling prompts, new creative writing exercises and sharing some of our writing. These exercises will explore things from the small details of our daily lives to remembering things from our past. We’re hoping these exercises will help enrich your daily journaling practice with new ways to write and come up with ideas, reveal new layers of ourselves and help us find our own stories to tell.

SURF

During the camp, we would like to introduce you to surfing, as Bali is one of the top surfing destinations in the world, and it would be a mistake not to take advantage of this opportunity to try something new and as fun as surfing definitely is! You can look forward to a surf lesson under the guidance of professional instructors. The lesson consists theoretical part that lasts approximately 45 min. during which you will learn not only how to ride the surfboard itself, but also introduce you a range of surf concepts. Next 90 min. is the practice in the ocean. We take you to the place with the most ideal conditions for beginners, and provide all the equipment.

WHOLE DAY TRIP

There’s a lot to see in Bali, and it’s impossible to catch everything in a one day. Nevertheless, we will arrange an unforgettable trip that will show you a bit of the beauty of the “Island of Gods”. The first stop will be the unique Hindu temple of inner cleansing – Pura Tirta Empul. We also take a walk through the stunning rice terraces. We will visit Ubud – a magical little town of arts and crafts and whoever likes to go to a monkey forest will have a chance to meet these cute but a bit of a roguish monkeys. Finally, we stop at one of the hundreds of waterfalls that can be seen in Bali.

DINNER TOGETHER

On the first evening, we invite you to a dinner where you can enjoy local cuisine at the local stylish restaurant. Balinese cuisine is one of the most delicious in the world, so you really have something to look forward to!

SNORKELLING WITH MANTA RAYS

A full-day boat trip from Sanur to Nusa Penida where you are snorkelling with gigantic but friendly Mantas. After snorkelling and observing them, the trip continues to Crystal Bay, the bay where you can see beautiful lively coral gardens. Meanwhile you are enjoying the underwater world, the crew catches your lunch in the ocean and prepares you a royal feasts right on the virgin beach where you spend the rest of the afternoon. We recommend this trip to more experienced swimmers.

COOKING CLASS

The Indonesian diverse cuisine strongly encourages you to look at it bit closer, so we have arranged local cooking lesson to guide you through the preparation of delicious local dishes and show you some simple recipes that will be prepared from local ingredients. And of course, what you cook, you eat.

SOUTHERN BALI BEACH TRIP

In the south of Bali are the most beautiful beaches of the whole island. All of them are within 10 km from our resort. The nearest is a beach 2 km away called Green Bowl or at a similar distance the sacred beach Melasti. We will try to visit some of them, but believe that one short visit of Bali is not enough.

BBQ

No “summer vacation” can be done without having a barbecue with friends. This is a traditional and indispensable social event for every one of our camps that you will not miss! We will give you a taste of fresh fish and seafood from the local market, complemented by our own organic vegetables or organic vegetables from local farmers.

DAY OFF

The program is really packed, but we also think of your rest and regeneration, so we have one day for you even in a busy itinerary, which is just yours – the day off, which you will arrange at your convenience.

PING-PONG CONTEST

Just between us we give it a ping-pong tournament and the winner gets certificate and the winner prize.

MOVIE NIGHT

A summer cinema, it’s an evergreen of every holiday. Bali Bio Villas has perfect conditions for this, so we will project nice movie all together from the bean bags comfort by the pool.

TRIP TO CANGGU

Bali has many faces, so we would like to show you one of its wilder forms – Canggu, the town that never sleeps. This place is renowned for its countless designer cafes, renowned restaurants, a variety of organic shops and boutiques, but also plenty of nightlife’s venues full of fun.

SUNSET

Sunset can be magnificent in any place, but some of the sunsets stand out, especially those over the ocean. We want to take you to say goodbye to the sun in a unique place that will attack all your senses, and the memory of it will last forever.

FOOD

Balinese cuisine is one of the tastiest in the world. Around Bali Bio Villas you can find many local restaurants called Warung, where you can enjoy typical rice with vegetables (or meat) – Nasi Goreng or Nasi Campur, delicious fish Mahi-Mahi or a tasty local dish called Gado-Gado with peanut sauce. Our goal is to direct you to healthy and tasty meals and give you practical advice on how you can replace some unhealthy food with something that is just as tasty or even tastier and much healthier! Remember that „you are what you eat“ and „you feel what you eat.“

The price includes:

BREAKFAST

Participants of our camp will have a continental breakfast (sweet or salty) in the fridge every morning, along with a bowl full of local fruit and vegetables to be prepared by their own. However, from our experience, most of the time are breakfasts created by all campers and the beginning of the day is really joyful and cheerful.
