An experience I'll take with me for the rest of my life!
Feb 2020
There are so many things I could say about the authenticity and depth of Blooming Lotus Yoga's retreat and teacher training. I am beyond grateful to have crossed paths and believe they have been a catalyst to living with more love and true to myself.
The staff are wonderful and try to help you as much as they can. Be aware they have some young interns that are still learning English, so if you need something try to call the front desk or ask the main staff members:) The classes are inviting you into a place of finding inner balance and 'letting go' of what no longer serves you. If you look for power yoga, look elsewhere, as these teachers are deeply linked to the traditions of the practice and are guiding mindfulness, meditation and asana united.

The teachers are incredible embodiments of the yogic practice and you can really feel they care about your experience and growth within the retreat/training.

I loved the accommodations, the beds are heavenly and I love that you can have your rooms cleaned whenever! The entire property is taken care of well, and you can't beat the beauty of Bali nature<3

I felt at home and well-taken care of during my stay which allowed me to return to my life rejuvenated and dare I say transformed. If you are looking for a heart-centered, authentic training/retreat, I highly recommend it. My life literally hasn't been the same since Blooming Lotus Yoga crossed my path.

Do not miss out on the BL experience
Aug 2019
I would highly recommend the Bloooming Lotus retreats. They are perfect for those who want to connect with a kinder, more nourishing way of life, starting with themselves

The facilities and surrounds were like a blissful Bali dream come true. The fantastic timetable, with morning and evening slots for yoga, meditation and workshops, also allowed for free time to explore Ubud and the surrounds via the shuttle bus in the afternoons. Together with the truly delicious meals and the spa treatments available on site, this retreat was nourishing on all levels.

Anisha’s amazing voice was a portal to total surrender and relaxation into my body. I began to rediscover my yoga muscles and most importantly, rediscover my relaxation reflex, something that I had not felt much over the last 3 years. The level and variety allowed you to challenge yourself at your own pace, which was also very restorative. The water purification ceremony at the end really felt authentic: we all felt renewed and recharged. Thank you to all at BL: a very special heart filled place.

Amazing location, not so amazing teaching
Jul 2019
The location was stunning, rooms were comfortable and hospitality by ubud corner was top notch. However, the yoga itself was very average. If you are a beginner then maybe the 4 or 7 day retreat is good for you, but if you are in any way experienced at yoga you will understand that all they teach is basic san sals and basic variations. There is also NO ALIGNMENT OR ADJUSTMENTS whatsoever. Bindi also did the same side twice by mistake on her sun sal. One teacher, stacey, taught us some mantras which she clearly didn't understand what they meant when questioned, particularly for ganpati mantra, she should not trivialise or misrepresent Hindu gods the way she did.

We are so happy you enjoyed our location & are sorry you misunderstood the views of our teachers. We have great respect and admiration for the Vedic tradition and would never trivialize anyone’s spirituality. We teach advanced energetic alignment principles that don’t always necessitate hands-on adjustments, unless needed for safety or to prevent and heal injuries. We teach complete and balanced asana sequences to empower students to practice confidently at home. We warmly invite you to return to deepen your practice and open your mind to new perspectives.

Whether it’s your first time to Bali or not, whether it’s your first time to a retreat or not, BL will not disappoint
Feb 2020 • Solo
Personally what I think always makes a place is the people and BL definitely provided this for my 7 day retreat.
People who are attending are all of an open mind and it’s fantastic to meet people from all around the world, who are open to sharing their own stories.
Furthermore the staff at BL are fantastic from the Yogi teachers to the staff assuring everything during your stay is exceptional. (Here I think there should be a special thank you to Ketut Jus and Sewar who went above and beyond to help - if I have spelt these names incorrectly I apologise profusely).

The place itself takes you out of the madness in Bali and into a beautiful tranquil jungle setting; both this and the accommodation provide for an extremely restful stay.
There is one point to make here though; like all of Bali the place is not without bugs and mosquitoes are rife - come prepared with your insect repellent and citronella.

Thanks BL and to the people who attended my week - you all made it fantastic.

Amazing Yoga Retreat worth
Jan 2020
My 4 day Yoga retreat at Blooming Lotus Yoga center was absolutely amazing, refreshing and awakening. Even though it is my 3rd meditation retreat, it mades me feel like a new student hearing all the enlightening messages for the first time. Fortunate enough to have Bindi and Stacey as our teachers!

Great for Hindu yoga

Fill your cup
Oct 2019 • Solo
I spent an unforgettable week at BL, filling my own cup with positive energy and calm and meeting extraordinary people from all around the world.

Our teacher Bindi, was such an inspiring person; truly wise, kind, compassionate and such a good listener.

The venue, the staff, the food,.... everything was so perfect!

I’m now back home with plenty of tools to reach inner peace... and heart full of gratitude for everything BL and Bindi gave me !

Amazing retreat and relaxation
Oct 2019 • Friends
I attended a 6 night retreat at Blooming Lotus, run by Bindi and the BL team in Oct 2019.
Everything about the retreat was amazing! From the yoga, meditation and mindfulness sessions to the beautiful villas with private pools, the vegan food and amazing service from the staff.
The other participants were all of a similar mindsets, all busy people looking to incorporate yoga into their lives, some with no yoga experience others with 10+ years of practice, but all very down to earth (no yoga 'wankers').
The days were also well structured with enough down time to explore Ubud or have a massage or swim and no pressure if you skipped a yoga session.
This was a seriously amazing week and I loved every minute of it!

Come for the yoga, stay for the human connection
Oct 2019
This was my first yoga retreat ever, so I chose the 4-day option. I knew it had good reviews, but it was above and beyond what I expected. The attendees came from 12 different countries and it was such a beautiful experience hearing everyone's stories over meals--how different and how similar we all are. My favorite parts of the retreat were the workshops and learning about meditation. I felt like that was the most different from what I was already getting in my regular yoga classes back home. We only scraped the surface of the intricacies and history of yoga, but we learned so much and I can't wait to do my own research to dive even deeper into the content. If you're not sure if you want to commit to the full week, you can choose to add on days to your retreat if you choose the shortened week. I would have done this had I not pre-paid my next hotel.

The staff made it very easy to get anything done. For example I just emailed to say when I needed hotel pickup before the retreat and transportation after, and they were very prompt, safe, and reasonably priced. It's so nice that there is a free shuttle into town in the afternoons, because you also get to explore Ubud.

The schedule made the day feel really full but not overwhelming--it had a good pace. There is a magic to this retreat that can't really be described. It really filled my heart and I would love to come back at the first chance.

If you are traveling solo, take advantage of the shared room option. My roommate and I were quite close and it was nice to have a built-in buddy.
