About the activities:

Sacred Holy Water Ceremony: Sebatu waterfalls is roughly 20 mins north of Ubud city centre, and considered to be one of the holiest places in Bali. Upon arrival, we will walk down steps covered by jungle foliage to reach the 1st place of prayer at the temple of death called Pura Dalem Pingit, asking for blessings by the temple’s guardians. A second prayer is required next at Pura Kusi temple. We will give the gods our offerings called kwangen, made of young coconut leaves containing fresh and colourful flowers and Chinese coins. After praying at the two temples we will perform a final ritual near the entrance of the holy waterfall before plunging ourselves under purification, allowing its healing and cleansing qualities to pour over our heads and bodies.

Pyramid Sound Transformation Bath: Pyramids of Chi is one of the most unique meditation and healing spaces where we will be immersed in sacred ethereal and primal sounds, rhythms, beats and vibrations of ancient instruments such as; gongs, drums, feathers and didgeridoo which creates a peaceful atmosphere to reduce ‘beta-waves’ brain waves that dominate aroused conscious thoughts, and increase the intensity of ‘theta-waves’ within the brain, which introduces deep relaxation and increased awareness of inner-self.

Mount Batur: Get ready for an amazing experience trekking on this active volcano. Hike your way up, then stand atop, the ancient Mount Batur volcano and watch the sun come up over the sea. Feel the adrenaline kick in as you see the sky turn from black to inky blue, from pink to orange, revealing the expanse of the volcanic valley. The trek will need 1.5 to 2 hours to climb the mountain until first peaks, we will have professional local guides accompany us during the trek. The slope of the volcano is covered by black lava which continues deep into the caldera. From the top of the mountain you will witness an amazing sunrise, Batur lake and panorama Mt Bromo on eastern part of the Island. During this time a light breakfast will be served.

Your stay in Bali:

The surrounding Ubud District’s rainforest and terraced rice paddies, dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, are among Bali’s most famous landscapes. Ubud is many ways Bali’s cultural heart. Pure seductive nature where traditional Balinese culture imbues every waking moment, where colourful offerings adorn the streets and where the hypnotic strains of gamelan are an ever-present soundtrack to everyday life. Ubud offers relaxation, rejuvenation and the most magical get away of your life.

Quick to smile and easy to laugh, the Balinese are experts at living a life of joy and fulfillment. They live in the moment, neither regretting past events nor vexing on what has yet to happen. Perhaps nowhere else on Earth lives a better example of truly living in a joyful state than in Bali. Life here is interwoven with spirituality, delight in daily rituals and appreciation for all surrounding them.

Hidden in the hillside at a place where heaven and earth blissfully meet, lies Blue Karmas Nestling Escape. The suites have been carefully crafted from Javanese wood, making your stay ethnic and luxurious, in true Blue Karma style. Each suite is individual, yet all as charming as the next. With views of the tropical jungle, abundant rice paddies, and a stunning infinity pool; your stay will be like no other.

Your retreat leaders:

Both Claudia and Nikkii are the real wanderlusts. They’ve lived everywhere and nowhere. Always ready to pack up and move to an exciting new destination and starting over is a natural process in which they allow themselves to completely surrender and let the universe guide them along. They met in Bali whilst filming for a yoga application and instantly connected. Not just because they are both Leos, but due to their vision and ideas they had crafted, that they wanted to share with the world. Connecting and sharing with others through yoga, wellness, Ayurveda and healing energies.

About Claudia:

Originally from San Jose in Costa Rica, Claudia has spent the last ten years travelling and working around the world. She is now based mostly in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia and goes around the world leading her year-round retreats. She has deepened her practice traveling around Southeast Asia and USA taking workshops and other trainings continuously.

Claudia did her first 200 hrs Teacher training in India at Himalaya Yoga Valley in 2011 and her 300 hrs was completed in 2017 in New York at Yoga Works. She also has a vast interest in healing and restorative practices, which lead her into a Yin Yoga training and a Reiki course.

With a background in sports and adventure, Claudia’s energetic yet serene personality makes for well-rounded classes that focus on the importance of the breath, calming of the mind and the connection to the subtle body, always drawing you into the present moment, which aligns well with her life motto: Be here now. 

 Each of Claudia’s classes are different and challenging yet always very grounding. She pays special attention to proper alignment and her cues are clear for both beginners and advanced practitioners. Claudia will always make you feel comfortable, at ease and inspired with her down to earth personality. Her classes flow with grace and her voice nurtures you to places deep within.  Her events, workshops and retreats reflect the love and passion she has for the practice and Claudia is able to transmit that and touch the practitioner’s hearts to look within.

Committed to sharing wellness in an integrative and functional way and the deeper meanings of the yoga traditions, Claudia finds a way to take you into a peaceful mind and creative “pura vida” living.
