Mikkala Marilyn Kissi

Yolates – a holistic training program combining Yoga, Meditation, Pilates and Dance – is offering two classes a day that include deep toning exercise, detoxifying breath work, meditation, and joyful movement. Connect with your body and spirit in these totally unique, sessions that break the rules of a traditional class. Strengthen the body, increase flexibility, while letting go of stress and negativity and opening up to a greater sense of freedom and love for your entire being!

The retreat

We start each day with an energizing Living Yolates or Dancing Yolates Session with Mikkala, followed by breakfast, and a cooking class or nutrition workshop with Sarah. After lunch there is free time to rest, enjoy the saltwater pool, the shala, take a walk through the beautiful rice fields, or into Ubud. The afternoon offers a second Yolates class geared towards relaxation, followed by dinner, and an optional evening activity.

This is an all women's retreat and we have limited the number of participants to 16 to make sure that everyone gets the best experience possible.

Dragonfly Village, an enchanted retreat paradise, is set in the midst of one of the most beautiful rice field walks in the center of Ubud, Bali. Tranquility and stunning greenery all around – a panorama with sacred Mt Agung and the northern ranges of mountain in a distance. It is an open space filled with dragonflies in the day and fireflies in the night, a symphony of crickets and frogs, perfect for those who enjoy being in the nature, healing and learning. Only footsteps away from center Ubud, but tucked away from its hassles and bustles, this unique setting offers the best of both worlds.

The village’s structures are mostly recycled wood and traditional antique teak houses brought over from remote villages in Java. Their focus is living simply and consciously within an organic environment.

All meals and drinks are included during your stay and meals are prepared by Dragonfly Village's own chef in collaboration with Sarah Britton, using local, whole ingredients.
