REFRESH YOUR CREATIVITY, RELEASE YOUR FEARS, TAP INTO OUR COMMUNITY AND EXPERIENCE A TASTE OF FREEDOM
To liberate the creative spirit within you,
To take on the next level of yourself and be FREE.
If you've heard about the magic of Bali and you're open-minded to experience it, now's the time.
This is your chance to step outside your comfort zone, surrender to all the love and goodness that Bali has to offer, and let your spirit FLY!
This isn't a typical "yoga retreat". This is a place to be moved and inspired by everything. It just happens to include yoga, real-talk, exploration and community.
DARE TO BE SELF-EXPRESSED, OPEN AND FREE IN BALI!
THE BUZZ IN BALI...
No, we're not talking about the buzz of mosquitos here. Our RE:TREAT is in a really special location with a micro-climate with a constant breeze to keep those fuckers out!
If that's not the icing on this Bali cake, I don't know what is.
But, I digress. Let's get serious for a moment: We live and work in a society where we have to be somewhere TEN MINUTES AGO. There's deadlines, someone to take orders from, and everything to respond to. (Hello, Instagram/Twitter/Pinterest/Reddit/*Enter Your Personal Distraction Here*)
Did you know that these elements strip away the youthful essence of who you are? Do you know how much these stressors impact you physiologically from the inside-out?
What if you could tap into that "inner child" again? What would it feel like for you to mentally bathe in an environment renown for its "magical", "spiritual" and "unreal" appeal?

VERY EDIBLE ART
Have you ever had Indonesian food before? Do exotic spices and vivid colors
appeal to your palate?
Soft, fluffy rice rests in dark green banana leaves, cradling various stewed
veggies and protein sources. Ready for your taste buds, the flavors blend together
in such a aromatic harmony.
Fresh ingredients. Organic. Permacultured as much as possible. From the resort's private Farm, to Table, to your Mouth.
Options for Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-Free Meals are available.
We'll also learn about the Yoga of Eating.
No, I won't make you give up what you normally eat. This is more about practicing
the gift of meditation, not just when your eyes are closed but when your mouth is open and your belly is hungry.

YOUR YOGA RETREAT HOST
Hi. I'm Julie Tran Buorn. According to my husband, I am a "former Buddha that has dissolved into the digital world". That's a very bold statement. I'm just a formerly clumsy geek that turned into a much less clumsy geek with the mission to share yoga with you all.
Being confined to a cubicle felt shitty. Practicing yoga, teaching it and doing rookie artsy stuff did not. In what took me almost a decade to learn, I've taken the best of modern science, applied an urban approach and integrated it into this creativity-focused retreat to benefit you the best way I know how.
You may have met me at Deep House Yoga (in SF or LA), Underground Yoga, Rogue Yogi Rhythm or Silent Disco Flow. Maybe you found me through the Internets and this is your first time learning about me.

- If I got a Single Occupancy room, can I change it to a Double Occupancy room later?
It depends on whether there's Double Occupancy rooms with someone needing a roommate, or if there are any left (if you have a friend that wants to go with you). The sooner you decide, the better. After April 15, 2018 the rooms are pretty set, and you won't be able to change them.
- What airport do I need to fly into for the complimentary shuttle?
You'll have to fly into Denpasar (DPS) Airport in Bali! I will collect your flight info in March so we can arrange the shuttle situation!
- My flights are a lot cheaper if I arrive on Saturday, May 23th/leave on Sunday, May 31st, 2020. Can I check-in early/check-out late?
Yes! You'll get hooked up with a discounted rate if you stay early/later! Just mention the Rogue Yogi Retreat with the dates and the staff will be happy to help you out!
Any questions I haven't addressed here?
Send me an email! julie[at]rogue.yoga
- Do I have to know how to practice yoga to attend?
Absolutely not. This retreat goes beyond "traditional" yoga ideals and intends to share not only yoga, but ways to move your body to suit your intentions (not the other way around). You will get a very fresh perspective and feel free in your own skin. There will be vigorous classes in the morning, but they are all-levels. The sessions in the evening are gentle. You also don't have to attend any of the yoga sessions, either.
- Do I have to bring any yoga props?
Nah, all the yoga mats, blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets will be provided on-site
- Can I pay in installments?
Yes! When you submit your deposit, the next month starts your installment plan. Equal monthly payments are due by March 15, 2020
- What if I can't find someone to share my Double Occupancy room with?
We will do our best to find a compatible person to share the cost of your Double Occupancy room. We will have to be sure that you and your potential roommate have similar night-time habits/sleeping schedules. In the rare case that we cannot, you will have to upgrade to a Single Occupancy room (and pay the difference).
OUR registration POLICY:
The investment starts off with a deposit of $395. It is non-refundable.
All Early-Bird payments are due by January 15th, 2020. All Regular payments are due by March 15th, 2020.
1. Your passport must be renewed. It doesn't matter what expiration date you see on your passport. By international law, it just can't expire within 6 months of arriving. Trust us, you won't be allowed to board the international flight.
2. Get some Travelers' Insurance. Whether it's from your credit card company or from a Traveling Insurance website. Be sure to show proof when you arrive. After leading several retreats, we've realized that you cannot predict the future. People assuming nothing will happen are unfortunately not fortune tellers. Shit can happen (though we wish it wouldn't)! You can use World Nomad Insurance online or look around to see the variety of policy options.
Note: If you decide to purchase through this affiliate link (I'll get a credit, but at no extra cost to you).
OUR CANCELLATION POLICY:
For The Trip: Any cancellation will result in us keeping your non-refundable deposit of $395. In addition, any cancellation made between: January 15th-March 15th, 2020 will result in a loss of 50% of the trip price. Any cancellation made after March 15th, 2020 will result in a total loss of funds.
We reserve the right to cancel the trip if it is not meeting the trip minimum (if we do so your deposit is refunded in full).
ROOM OCCUPANCY POLICY:
It's a rare situation, but if we cannot match you with a roommate (with similar sleeping habits and schedules), we will have to switch you to a single occupancy room (and you will have to pay the difference), however if you sign up early you will most likely get your choice.
