The Place Retreats Bali
My vision turned into reality
Upon arrival in Bali you will be welcomed at the airport and taken to the five-star luxury retreat centre, that is your home for the duration of your stay. You will be totally free of all responsibilities. Meals, transport and activities are all catered for, giving you the time and space that you need to focus on yourself. This allows you to let go of the stresses of everyday life, finding true guidance for a new direction.
Being totally taken care of, you start to feel more confident, relaxed, renewed and revived. Your length of stay depends on your individual needs and your treatment plan is personalised to suit your requirements. During our time together, guests undertake a transformational process of dynamic yoga plus individual and group therapy. This occurs in the gorgeous exotic surroundings of Seminyak, on the Balinese coast.
With a philosophy that overall health can’t be separated from mental health anymore, The Place Retreats brings its guests to the realisation that while they may obsess about taking care of their bodies by exercising and eating healthy, it is the negative mind that can overwhelm their thoughts. These negative thoughts travel through the body in the guise of different emotions that affect their whole being.
With therapy and yoga practice guided by experts at The Place, perceptions and belief systems that filter and shape reality are changed, allowing guests to view their world with a brand-new outlook.
This is a fundamental, deep transformation that has given a multitude of The Place guests a new life in which they are finally the masters in control of their reality. The luxurious long-stay retreats from 40 to 90 days form the bedrock of the retreat.
The unique process at The Place retreats, combining Psychotherapy and Kundalini Yoga, lies in the combination of the mind/body approach that was practised by the ancient Greeks more than 2500 years ago: “A healthy mind in a healthy body.”
Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness; classes may include warm-ups, breathing techniques (pranayama), an exercise set (kriya), deep relaxation, chanting, and meditation. This practice helps to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity and purify the blood.
Experience it for yourself and feel the transformation towards physical strength, heightened awareness, mental clarity, and happiness.
Private sessions are also available.
place for you
Our guests normally arrive at The Place fraught with anxiety, sadness and stress. It does not take long before they feel secure in the total care of our professional team – so safe that they feel they can finally start to relax. They unwind in a sumptuous boutique retreat, with leisure time to enjoy the swimming pools, tropical gardens, spa treatments, complementary therapies, a large staff waiting on them, and delicious cuisine from the resident chef.
All of us are beautifully capable of changing our unhelpful habits, behaviours, and state of mind. It’s natural for the human brain to focus on the negative – a necessary bias which alerts us to threats and hardwires us for survival.
Combined with difficult or traumatic experience, it’s no wonder that fearful thoughts and low mood dominate our actions and darken our reality. In trying to protect ourselves, we harm ourselves.
Our perception of the world and our place within it becomes distorted and we struggle to function normally. Common signs of this are fear, low self-esteem, anxiety, food issues, depression and addiction.
