Bali is a beautiful tropical island in the middle of Indonesia 1 mile East of Java and separated by the Bali Straight. It is situated between the Philippines and Australia. Denpasar International Airport is the primary airport for arrival and departure. 

Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat (Bali Yoga Retreats - Spa, Wellness | Floating Leaf) is a peaceful retreat center situated in a lush oasis- the perfect setting to nourish, recharge and heal your body, mind and soul, on the Southeastern part of the Island just a 3 minute drive from Saba Beach, 7 minutes from Tegenungan Waterfall and 26 minutes by car from the airport (transfer to and from included), in Sukawati, Bali considered one of the most spiritually abundant places on earth. The lush rainforests, terraced rice paddies, mystical mountains, sacred temples and shrines, Monkey Jungle, Balinese food and people will captivate and enchant. 


This 8 day self-care retreat is two- fold. The morning sessions, “Yoga a personal practice” with Jeri, focus on creating a personal formal (postures, breathing and concentration techniques) and informal (perceptions, stress management, gratitude and mindfulness) yoga practice for self-care in order to facilitate wellness in all areas of health- physical, energetic, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social and environmental. 

We will come together in a sacred circle to learn a smattering of  yoga history and philosophy as well as practice yoga postures, breathing, and focused concentration techniques. How to cultivate more mindfulness (taking some meals in silence), gratitude (engaging in a karma yoga project) and positive perceptions for managing stress will be introduced as well as small group sharing, discussion and journaling. This portion along with a 3 hour Ethics component is approved by the NCBTMB for 24 self-care CEs and by Yoga Alliance (minus the Ethics) for 21.  

~ ~ ~

The evening sessions, “Re~Connect to S*E*L*F with Carrie, focus on using yoga practices including postures and meditation as well as  journaling and discussion to reflect, discover and re~connect to who you are now and where you want to go. 

This course is NOT approved for Massage Therapy but does include 8 Yoga Alliance approved CEs.

We also encourage all participants to attend this portion as it dovetails nicely with the morning sessions and continues the process of creating intimacy, community and opportunities for reflection. 

The overarching goal for the morning and evening sessions is to create a path to the soul through practices that encourage an awakening into more moments of mindfulness for each participant. When we come from this space, we begin to live more fully... touch life deeply. 

Participation in ALL morning sessions and the Ethics portion is required if you are receiving 24 CEs for North Carolina Massage Therapy and Bodywork License Renewal and/or 21 CEs for Yoga Alliance Certification Renewal.

Participation in ALL evening sessions is required in order to receive the 8 CEs for Yoga Alliance Certification Renewal.



*No partial CEs will be given if you choose not to attend a part of ANY of the sessions.

Attendance in all sessions is strongly encouraged for EVERYONE regardless of needing CEs as the nature of this retreat is to create intimacy and a strong sense of connection and community.

This is personal.

Expect change.
