The Retreat

This 7-day revitalizing retreat will restore your balance, cultivate inner peace, and nourish your body from the inside out. Learn to take care of yourself on a deeper level, and feel empowered moving forward knowing what optimal wellbeing looks like in your life beyond our week together.

We start each day with a centering and invigorating physical practice, led by Mikkala Marilyn Kissi of Living Yolates. Then flow into an intimate cooking class, nutrition workshop, or breathwork session with Sarah Britton of My New Roots. Afternoons offer a second class, and there will be free time to enjoy a massage (two included in your package), a refreshing dip in the pool, take a restorative walk through the rice paddies, have a rest or reflection, and connect with other retreat guests. Dinners are slow and delicious, and often evolve into late night hangs and starlit swims.

Join Sarah and Mikkala for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in the stunning Balinese landscape to connect with yourself and like-minded, women-identified people, from all over the world. We can’t wait to welcome you to our special Golden Circle Retreat!

Reflections from Past Participants

“This retreat came into my life at exactly the right moment, when I needed to rest and recharge – it was deeply nourishing in every way. Most importantly, the experience helped me reconnect with myself and my feminine energy, and to listen to my intuition, something I have struggled with for too long.”

L.L., Canada

“After the Golden Circle Retreat, I have continued to feel much more connected to my body in a positive way. I feel like I have some new tools to process life experiences. I have been cooking even more than I did before. I feel like I know how to better take care of myself – body, mind, and soul.”

B.D., USA

“My posture has changed, the lines in my face have changed, my whole perception has changed. There are not a lot of retreats out there, besides this one, that have such a holistic approach to health.”

Sandra, Australia

The Location

Blue Karma is nestled on the side of a hill—some might say between the heavens and Earth—and surrounded by lush rice paddies and ravines covered in rainforest. Blue Karma Dijiwa Ubud exudes simple luxury for those looking to escape to a serene spot where you can relax, rejuvenate, and delve into Balinese culture and nature.

Located about a 10-minute drive north of the heart of Ubud – Bali’s cultural centre – it is the perfect place to take in the peace of the Balinese countryside, still within walking distance to temples, art galleries, boutique shops, markets, restaurants and cafes.

Blue Karma’s stunning grounds include a large swimming pool overlooking the rice paddies, an open-air yoga shala, restaurant and lounge, wellness spa, and gardens overflowing with Balinese flora.

The Food

The week’s menu will be prepared by Blue Karma’s in-house team in collaboration with Sarah Britton, using local, whole food ingredients – think My New Roots in Bali! The menu will cater to diverse diets, with plant-rich, nourishing, and satisfying dishes, using organically grown ingredients. Blue Karma’s Botanist Restaurant proudly crafts dishes using local superfoods, like moringa and matcha, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Sarah’s approach to cooking is creative, fresh, and vibrant, and her passion is bringing out the natural flavours in the ingredients she chooses, while preserving their precious nutrients. She finds a great deal of inspiration through travel, and humbly learning from other cultures and kitchens.

All food and non-alcoholic drinks are included during your stay, and dietary accommodations can be made so long as you let us know at least one month in advance of our retreat.
