"An oasis in Bali"
I loved everything about this retreat, the set up was perfect! Staff were welcoming, the organised daily workshops/day tour was a fantastic way to learn traditional Balinese culture and 2 yoga classes a day with a variation of teachers to keep it interesting. We had a very small and intimate class which meant that the teachers could help us individually, and each one was knowledgeable and passionate about their practise.
Oh and the fresh spring water pool in the jungle was paradise!

I loved Shanti Toya Ashram. This was my first yoga retreat ever, and I enjoyed it immensely. The instructors were all wonderful, and each brought something different, and the site itself is a wonderful place to relax and reflect.

"Excellent opportunity to relax and further practice"
The staff and teachers were all amazing. So friendly, gracious and welcoming. The food was fresh and varied. The grounds themselves were so beautiful. The photos don't do it justice. On top of that the Balinese experience tour was such a great insight into Balinese culture. We did so much in just 4hrs. That was such a gift. Overall so many places to be mindful and reflective on the grounds and not far from Ubud for day trips if you like. A fantastic experience, I will definitely be back.

Quality of daily yoga in morning and evening was amazing. Various instructors, different yoga (Vinyasa, Yin, Dynamic), breathing exercises. Besides that each day some activity - Balinese village, cooking and dancing class, make of offerings. Lovely staff - Kalina manager was very helpful all the time, Pradnya who runs the place is lovely lady as well, not to forget the chef ladies who prepared amazing vegetarian food. Ashram is in the forest, lot of flora and fauna( geckos:) so you rather like living in nature, no frills accommodation, focused on yoga.

"Highly recommended "
The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The yoga instruction and variety was excellent. The cultural experiences were interesting, educational and enjoyable. The food was healthy and very tasty. The location in a small forest by a river surrounded by a farming village was peaceful, relaxing, colourful, refreshing and there was local wildlife to be seen.A variety of accommodation options are available. Massage and healing services are very good. Transport services are timely and professional. Overall an excellent experience and value for money.

"Amazing week "
Such a lovely place with lovely people, beautiful surroundings in the most peaceful location, amazing homemade vegan food everyday, the trip was really interesting, the massage was amazing, the activities were all fun, yoga was great, the people I met there were so lovely... the only downside was my room which was a little unclean and they are very basic but they do their best to be accommodating and help in any way they can. The perfect place to relax and find your inner calm, thanks for a lovely week x

"for yoga beginners"
the yoga classes are perfect for beginners, the basics like right bearings are explained very well! For advanced yogis the classes are a bit simple sometimes. But anyways it’s great to get to know many types of yoga. The meals are super delicious and the massage is the best we’ve ever had.

"A little piece of heaven in the green "
Everything about this retreat exceeded my expectations. The environment was calm, comforting and friendly. The staff (and I mean ALL the staff) are some of the most welcoming and friendly people I have ever met. The location is perfect, surrounded my the green of bamboo, palm trees and rice paddies within a small village. I would highly recommend this to anyone, whether you are a beginner at yoga, or more experienced. The classes are fun and relaxed, and you leave with more confidence in your practice than when you first arrived. The activities and schedule allow you to really get to know more about Balinese culture, and fall in love with it.

"Super retraite très apaisante et intense "
Le cadre est très joli et excentré, la piscine très agréable. Les cours sont tops, le staff aussi, la cuisine même si vegane est excellente (moi qui ne mange pas de légumes d'ordinaire !) les activités en dehors des cours sont très bien... (visite du village, rizières, usine traitement de riz, cours de cuisine, danse Balinaise) 😊 j'ai vraiment apprécié ma retraite et rencontré des gens très gentils. Merci 😊
