Yoga Retreat

Local Balinese

We’re going to Ubud for our next yoga retreat, are you coming?

5 night yoga retreat at the stunning  THE SHALA BALI, voted one of Bali’s most beautiful yoga spaces.

The Shala is cocooned amongst rice paddies and coconut palms and is a place of peace, wellness and connection to nature. Find your natural rhythm: morning and evening yoga, meditation, floating in the pool, indulging in well deserved spa treatments and much more.

If you want to experience Bali’s cultural hub, Ubud awaits with its buzz of local markets, shopping galore and a diverse array of wonderful restaurants and cafes.

This yoga retreat is suitable for those of you who have had a little or lot of yoga experience and I am really looking forward to working with you on whatever level you are at.  If you haven’t done yoga before, but are generally fit and active, then this retreat will be fine for you.

I have 17 years of teaching experience and love to work with students at all levels.  My classes have many options to choose from, so everyone can feel comfortable working at their own level, without any pressure. If you are unsure of anything, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

“Inspiring and experienced teacher who lives and breathes yoga!”

My husband and I attended a 6 day/5 night yoga retreat with Julie Stephens in Bali. It was a truly incredible experience! Julie is a wonderful teacher with so much experience that providing options for individuals of different levels just comes naturally to her. She also has a way of making you feel instantly at ease and created such a welcoming atmosphere that our group felt like family. I found the retreat with Julie so inspiring that I now practice daily, something I have never managed to keep up before. If you are looking for someone to guide and inspire you on your yoga journey, look no further!
