Heart of Bali Retreat

A 7-Day Transformational Breathwork, Yoga and Wellness Immersion 

APRIL 2020

Often referred to as the Island of the Gods, Bali is encapsulated by lush tropical jungles, mesmerizing landscapes, turquoise coastal waters, and thousands of Hindu temples. Its indescribable mystery, exquisite art, rich cultural heritage, and deep earth reverence draws countless wandressess and wanderers, yogis and spiritual seekers each year looking to catalyze their own healing and transformation. 

From the moment you place your feet upon the island soil,

she will envelop you with her grace...

Bali is unlike any place in the world. The island itself exudes a certain spiritual presence, a nourishing energy that envelops those that walk upon her, providing a sacred reflection of the beauty inherent within all of us. Whether you are looking for a peaceful getaway, mystical pilgrimage, or great initiation on your path, Bali calls to those who are meant to come. 

Take a moment and breathe into your heart … listen … Does the island speak to you? You will know if you are meant to embark upon this journey with us…

What aches inside of you to be known and expressed into the world?  

    What dreams lie dormant in the recesses of your mind waiting for the invitation to ecstatically birth into your waking life?

Are there ways in which you can further activate, awaken and align to your most radiant self? 

Our time on this earth is short and each breath sacred.

Sacred Breath Retreats are designed to dive deep into the heart of what matters most and to stimulate an inner devotion to the manifestation of our most luminous embodiment.  

When we come together in openness and receptivity to weave beauty and transformation over the course of these 7 days, each participant (including the facilitators) will leave a completely different person- a truer and more authentic version of themselves. The Heart of Bali Retreat is an powerful opportunity to shed that which no longer serves you and step into your highest potential. The space created for your metamorphosis will be one of grace and profundity, gentle yet deep. 

Join us on a journey of healingempowerment, and growth in one of the most enchanted places on earth. Inundated by the natural beauty of the island, the organic tropical cuisine, the rejuvenating energy of the elements, and the vibrant culture of the people, this sacred immersion will touch our souls and leave us forever changed.

The Heart of Bali Retreat is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for both men and women of all ages and backgrounds that consists of 7 day-long modules, transformational workshops, yoga, meditation, breathwork, excursions, cultural activities, massage, food, drink, luxury villa accommodations and more…

Meet the Facilitators

Kaya Leigh

Kaya is a renowned international breathwork facilitator, quantum life coach, and catalyst of individual empowerment, sovereignty and reclamation. Through years of steadfast inquiry, study and embodiment of key principles of spirituality, self healing, Jungian and somatic psychologies, holistic nutrition, alternative medicine, quantum mechanics and particle physics, biogeometry, meditation, breathwork, yoga, and energy medicine as well as the essence of the enlightenment teachings that transcend language, she realized that her purpose on earth was to offer a synthesis of her life's uncoverings, taking this great work across the globe. Her foremost mission is to empower the individual to re-empower themselves, reclaiming their truth, creativity, passion, joy and purpose on the deepest levels of their being. This is the return to the true self; the authentic self, and it is the most enriching journey one can ever take…

Kaya offers a way of anchoring transformation that is truly beyond and remains unwaveringly devoted to supporting the path of self-realization and self-actualization in countless individuals of all walks of life. Twice a year, Sacred Breath Academy chooses a rare and beautiful destination to hold a Sacred Breath Retreat so that people of different countries may come together and experience its profundity. The core modality, The Sacred Breath Method™, utilizes the power of breath, self inquiry and inner alchemy to release that which holds one back from their greater potential, while simultaneously recalibrating their higher alignment, purpose and knowing.

Kaya has been teaching the art of breathwork for over a decade now and, to this day, remains continuously in awe of the profound metamorphoses it catalyzes, a foremost reason why she has devoted so much of her life to its proliferation. 

Giesel Widmer

Speaker, life coach and international yoga instructor, Giesel is a vehicle of freedom and a catalyst for the expansion of consciousness.

Giesel speaks: 

"I feel that more than anything I see the world differently than most. Everything that surrounds us is intricate and hinting but most of the time we miss it because we have become so dynamically unaware. To be true to self, we have to open our eyes... No seer can have vision with their eyes shut, their arms drawn, or their feet immobile. Life is about movement, it's about balance, it's about color. It's all there beneath the surface, you just have to look for it. This is the way in which I teach yoga. So let us move forward, always. Reflection is powerful, retraction is hindering." 


Aside from our everyday lives, we come to our yoga practice to learn. If, at first, it is to learn about the physical practice itself, it will gradually manifest into something much more. If you are looking for a place to find your truth, and to find truth in all things, yoga can transform your life in ways that you have never imagined. This practice is so much more than what we see at the surface level. But in order to uncover the mystery and truth behind its power, we must first show up. So we begin on our mats, with our eyes closed, and our mind open.......and we breathe. Here is to the journey of self-inquiry and knowledge.

Travel Tips

  • We recommend arriving to Bali at least 2-4 days prior to your retreat to acclimate to the timezone and anchor into the island and culture. This will ensure that you can deepen your experience with the maximum benefits.

  • There are a couple sites to use for reduced airfare. We suggest Skyscanner or Scotts Cheap Flights. Be sure to book your flight into Ngurah Rai International Airport, officially known as I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport. This is the main airport in Bali, located 13 km south of Denpasar. The code is DPS when booking your flight. We are also happy to arrange airport transport for you at an additional fee. Make sure to note that the drivers only accept cash and you can change money when you arrive in the airport.

  • We also recommend increasing your water intake in the week prior to ensure adequate hydration for the tropical climate. You can also begin doubling up on pre and probiotics in the weeks to come to promote a seamless transition into the local environment.

  • The weather in Bali during this time of the year holds an average of 81°F (26°C), with an average low of 72°F (22°C). Please pack your wardrobe accordingly.

  • Essentials: Bring comfortable light clothes (natural fabrics are most desirable for the tropics), good walking/hiking shoes and sandals/flip flops, yoga/breathwork clothing (particularly flowing or loose pants not tight around the waist), eyemask for breathwork, sunglasses, a hat, insect repellent, natural toiletries, your personal supplements, one coverup for night, notebook, journal, sunblock, and swimwear in addition to your personal items. Bali also has amazing shopping where you can pick up any extras you may need. NOTE: Yoga mats and props for breathwork will be provided.

  • It is not recommended to bring more than 1 large luggage and either a backpack, purse or small day bag per person. Be sure to pack the basis and leave room for souvenirs.

Sacred Preparation

We additionally encourage everyone to spend some quality time with themselves during the weeks leading up to the retreat in order to get in touch with their deeper needs, desires and intentions. This will be immensely valuable in how we both show up individually and co-creatively during the immersion. It is also helpful to begin cleansing the diet in the weeks prior as well, to ensure your most vibrant self during our time together. A great first step is the elimination of all processed foods, junk foods, sodas, sweets, etc. In their place, you may take in as much rich, nutrient-dense whole foods as desired (dark leafy greens, fresh salads, seeds, nuts, nut butters, avocados, cold-pressed coconut and olive oils, low glycemic fruits, cruciferous vegetables, wild fish (if you eat meat), superfoods, and so on).
