Description of the Retreat: Your Invitation to slow down.
The Ocean's flow, its deep connection, beauty and vastness - come and let it speak to the 70% of your body that is water. Take its joy, love and positivity into your life. This is about you. your pleasures. your joy!
The unique diving experience offered to you is calm, slow & nourishing. Together we will take the time to slow down, feel and experience the sensation of wholeness - being one with our breath, mind, body and fluids – the water within us and the water all around us.
Enjoy a pampering ocean front resort, artfully guided yoga classes (beginners welcome), scuba diving, meditation, sacred dance, pampering body treatments, creative workshops, cultural excursions, an intimate group and most importantly lots of laughter and fun! The perfect destination for many heart-centered moments!
Come and immerse yourself in Bali’s underwater magical world; famous for its exceptional diving, unique biodiversity, warm, clear waters, coral reefs, a wide variety of tropical fish and marine plants. Experience Bali's dazzling beauty, impressive temples, the unique culture and religion, its bliss - underwater and above!
Bali, the island of the Gods - a lush tropical island paradise, blissed with rainforests, volcanoes, rivers, waterfalls, miles of amazing coastlines, traditional dance, elegant temples, emerald-green rice terraces, beautiful people, mystical traditions and its vibrant artistic culture. A place where you can truly come back to yourself.
Accommodations: Tucked away in a remote village in the unspoilt north-eastern part of Bali, between the mountains and the Indian Ocean. Lies your secluded resort, in Bondalem-a Balinese village, a place where you can still find the island of the Gods in its traditional, spiritual and magical variety. A hidden paradise in the middle of an exotic garden, an oasis with tropical fruits, flowers and coconut trees. Here you will find endless space to absorb the unlimited expanse of the sea, to dream under palm trees and just be.
All rooms in the sanctuary have wooden floors and are furnished in Balinese and colonial style with antique furniture and decorated with Indian silks. Room feature magnificent views of the ocean, a natural stone bathroom with hot water, and a private garden or terrace.
Prana Veda Sanctuary offers 2 swimming pools, one is an infinity pool overlooking the ocean and the other is a secluded Watsu Therapy Pool. A Health and Ayurvedic Spa is available on-site.

Instructor name and bio: My name is Mei Shapiro, founder of Come Back to Yourself Retreats. You know as well as I that certain moments in life call to us, however faintly, for a change of pace. The need to go elsewhere and just be. Each retreat I lead is a combination of mindful living, yoga, relaxation, physical activities, creativity, dance, movement and having fun.
Given my own corporate past and having benefited so much from the holistic approach I understand and acknowledge the essential need for finding a balance between work and life, between body and mind.
I would like to share that wonderful experience with you and help you find simple ways that work for you. Everyone is capable of making these changes in their lives, and it always starts with the little things - sometimes they are right under your nose where you just can't see them!
Coming Back to Yourself are my offering. Let me show you simple practical ways to slow down, blanace, reflect, smile, enjoy, embody and go home a fuller happier version of yourself. More aware of being perfect as you already are.
I love playing music, yoga, being underwater, wild dancing, painting, long walks on the beach, peaceful tea breaks, silent moments and magical sunsets.
I am Canadian, fluent in English and French. I am passionate about travelling, nature, different cultures and places. At the moment I am living in the Golden land, Myanmar (Burma). Would love to share with you ideas and inspirations about living a fuller, more enriched life and most importantly, having fun!
