Pondok Pisang, Candidasa, Yoga Retreat Resort 2024

Take a wonderful Iyengar yoga tour to the best yoga escape Bali has.

The aim of the retreat is not necessarily to leave with a set of fancy poses. But, if you wish, there will be plenty of opportunity to steadily, or even rapidly, improve your yoga or pranayama breath meditation, or both.

In addition, Chris Lalor, as an accredited Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher and Yoga Therapist, can work with you to develop whatever you want to focus on, including any particular condition you want to manage better.

Some other key objective of the retreat are to:

  • learn more about your relationship with yourself
  • learn to use yoga and breath meditation to quieten your mind,
  • develop more inner peace, and
  • move you along a path towards higher consciousness.

Our inspiration lies in the ancient yoga book called The Bhagavad Gita. It says: “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”

A Kriya yoga approach, otherwise known as yoga in action, will be an important route to attaining these outcomes. If you wish, read more about Flametree’s Kriya yoga approach. 

Plus, in one of the presentations at the retreat, Chris will further address some of these important matters.Sea Breeze retreat centre Bali

Shared & Single Room Options

The next sections tell you more about room options at the retreat.

  • At Pondok Pisang, there are shared rooms and single rooms.
  • The single rooms have their own private bathroom and toilet, as well as air conditioning.
  • The shared rooms have either 2 or 3 people per bungalow, and share a private bathroom between them.
  • The shared bungalows are roomy & free-standing, & have both an upstairs & downstairs room (connected & sharing the same bathroom / toilet).
  • Where only 2 share a bungalow, each person has either and upstairs or downstairs section of the Bungalow to themselves.
  • There are only 2 especially large bungalows where a maximum of 3 share the bungalow. One of them is a very large Family Bungalow which in other scenarios could sleep up to 7 people  (just to illustrate how large it is).

Sharing Arrangements

  • In a shared room at Pondok Pisang, you can indicate who you want to share with, & discuss with us before you book.
  • Alternatively, tell us the other person/s also booking, with whom you will share.
  • We cannot make 100% guarantees about sharing arrangements, because it depends on who attends.
  • If the final sharing does not suit you, you can withdraw, subject to our cancellation policy.
  • Plus, once any sharing arrangement is agreed with you, we will of course stick with it. Otherwise, you have the right to fully withdraw, with no cancellation fee.
  • If there is any uncertainty about who you will be sharing with, we will stay in touch with you as arrangements firm up, so you can make decisions as needed.

Single Room Options At Either Pondok Pisang, Or Close By

  • There are also single room options outside of Pondok Pisang, at the 4 star Sea Breeze Hotel (400 metres away, via a pleasant lane way walk).
  • This is a 4 star hotel, right on the sea front. All rooms are full air conditioned. It’s a very pleasant modern hotel, with plenty of Balinese features, a swimming pool, and gorgeous sea views.
  • All 3 meals each day are with the rest of the retreat group at Pondok Pisang.
  • However, if you wish, you can, at your own expense, have extra snacks, coffees, or meals at the delightful, sea front restaurant at the Sea Breeze.
  • In particular, given that all Pondok Pisang meals are both vegetarian and vegan, you may wish to have some other snacks or whatever at the Sea Breeze (or other nearby restaurants). We recognise that some may miss their meat or fish, so we have no issue with you choosing to quietly do that.
  • A private, chauffered, car shuttle will operate as required to ferry you to and from the retreat site. It’s also a very walkable distance, around 400 metres. (We do find that most choose to walk, especially  once they become familiar with the local area).
  • In this Sea Breeze single room option, you can, if you wish, include a life partner, who’s not part of the retreat. They organise their own meals, and their own agenda around Bali. You pay just the single room rate. (In other words, they can be an extra person in your double room, at no extra charge. Let us or the Sea Breeze know, and they will set up your room as a twin or double).
  • It’s also possible for two people attending the retreat to share a twin room at the Sea Breeze. Let us know if you plan to do this, and we’ll give you a rate for that arrangement.

Bonus: 4 pranayama videos & 10 extra classes

As soon as you purchase this yoga and breath meditation retreat Bali package, you also get unlimited access to 4 pranayama training videos by Flametree’s Senior Yoga Teacher Chris Lalor.

When you’ve completed those video classes, you also get 10 FREE passes to Chris’ ongoing, weekly pranayama classes at Flametree Yoga Studio (either online or in-studio). You get these 10 classes even if you’ve accessed them via some other package.

If you’ve already done a pranayama breath meditation course with Chris (or a number of her weekly pranayama classes), you can start using the 10 free classes as soon as you like.

Those who’ve not done pranayama breath meditation, or who want a refresher, can do any mix of the video classes before, during, or after this Flametree Yoga Retreat.

The pranayama classes are normally $21 each, and the 4 pranayama videos are normally $49. So, this bonus gives you an extra $250 of valuable breath meditation training.

Yoga props for your yoga retreat Bali 2024

Below, are a few items you may not otherwise think of, or if you want a check list.

By way of background to your packing, this Bali yoga retreat resort has a fully dedicated yoga room with bolsters and mats.

There’s also some yoga swings, yoga ropes, yoga chairs, belts, and some blankets.

We suggest they provide more, and we leave some props every time we go there. Over the years, their prop supply has increased.

But to be sure, we suggest that you also bring some of your own props. Among other things, it’s also more hygienic.

If you come from a yoga style that uses few props, then you may also like to scan our separate page about yoga props, and good places to get them.

So, below is a list of a light weight selection of your yoga props.

  • 1-2 foam yoga bricks and a yoga strap
  • if you have it, a light weight shoulder-stand pad (useful as a head prop)
  • 2 thick beach towels for headrests
  • ideally, at least one, and preferably 2 yoga blankets (for pranayama meditation, shoulder stands, and more)
  • Your own yoga mat if you have one (but they’re also provided). Your own is both more hygienic, and also gives you extra cushioning.
  • at least 2-3 sets of yoga clothes you prefer (such as shorts, tops, leggings etc)
  • Bandage such as we use for some pranayama headwraps, or relaxation pose
meditation retreat

Other non-yoga packing for your yoga retreat Bali 2024

Otherwise, general items we suggest you include include these.

  • Favourite swimmers. (Snorkel gear is at the resort)
  • A sarong, or get one there (useful if we happen to attend a ceremony at the local temple)
  • Other casual clothes, including at least one set of long sleeve tops and long pants (easy insect protection)
  • Phone charger and Bali conversion plug with two round prongs. (WIFI is available)
  • Mosquito repellent (they’re not a big deal, but just in case, and when you’re outside in the early evening)
  • Shawl or light jumper … especially for Dry Season retreats (May through September)
  • Shoes, a floppy hat, & sun cream for any local walking you may do
  • Your own water bottle (or buy a disposable one at the Pondok Pisang dining room)
  • Your own ground coffee, or higher quality coffee bags, and maybe a small 3 cup plunger (if you don’t happen to like the Balinese style of coffee). But Australian style percolated coffee is sold by the dining room for a small fee. (Even those wanting a vegan yoga retreat Bali style, often like good coffee).
  • Your own “designer” tea bags of herbal tea like the Pukka brand or whatever you may especially like
  • Any snacks you want in your room, such as nuts. (But bring them through Customs un-opened)
  • Sealed containers to store any opened food. (Some rooms may occasionally have nocturnal visitors like tiny squirrel creatures).
  • Any medications, & own travel first aid items like headache pills, and anti-septic ointment like Betadine
  • Band-Aids in assorted sizes, and anti-septic wipes (like Wet Ones)
  • Elastic bandage/s such as you may use for a sprain
  • Small pair of scissors (in your checked luggage, if any)
  • Extra batteries for any devices dependent on them (but put in your checked baggage)
  • Extension leads and a double adaptor
  • Smaller bag or bags for carrying stuff when you’re there, including a money belt, and a small bag for passport or other valuables
  • Books you’re reading.
  • Washing powder (but very low cost clothes washing is also available daily at the resort)
  • COVID test kits, (and maybe K95 masks for a long plane trip).

This tempeh is a good example of the vegan protein served at Flametree’s bali yoga retreat 2024.

Mini-Marts, Money Changers, & Credit Card use

There are also Mini-Marts within easy walking distance of the retreat centre. You can use these to buy anything you forget, or items you may especially use.

For instance, this may include items like washing powder, soy milk, extra fruit to snack, sim cards, or whatever.

For instance, those who search for a vegan yoga retreat Bali style, will likely want their own supply of plant based milk.

In addition, there is also a reliable money changer close by. (Wayan, the taxi driver we use, can take you to the one he recommends).

As with many lesser developed countries, we recommend that, unless you are at an established hotel or resort centre, you use local currency, rather than your own credit card.

Delicious vegetarian & vegan yoga retreat Bali

Delicious vegetarian food that will also build wellness. Plus, it’s the best of vegan yoga retreat Bali options you’ll find.

Let’s know if your own list has extra’s that you want to share about.

Or share about it on the group WhatsApp list as soon as we set it up for the retreat.

Use the bottled water at the retreat

Even good tourist sites and magazines, will tell you NOT to drink bottled water in Bali. We agree!

Via a large bottled water stand in the dining room, the resort provides unlimited bottled water. Get and keep your own water bottle to refill

This includes cleaning your teeth, and rinsing your mouth, with bottled water.

In addition, if you buy a drink elsewhere in Bali, make sure that it does not have ice or other tap water.

What to expect at this 6 day yoga retreat Bali 2024

Sessions will be paced around the experience of the group and differentiated where appropriate.

The yoga space is available for your use when classes are not running.

No alcohol during the retreat, please. All meals at the retreat are vegetarian, and almost always vegan. However, if you request it, we can ensure there are additional vegan options, so you can definitely have a vegan yoga retreat Bali experience.

If you have any concerns about so-called “Bali Belly”, then we recommend that you only eat at the Pondok Pisang resort, and take a packed lunch on the day you leave. In over 10 years of retreats, we’ve never had a case of Bali Belly from those eating this resort’s food.

Your free time is your own. You can read, snorkel, swim, sleep, have a massage, go for a walk to the local village, or whatever.

This Bali yoga retreat provides 3 delicious meals a day, for 6 days. All food it vegetarian. If you’re so inclined, you’ll also find that it’s the best vegan yoga retreat Bali has.

Below there’s other background information. You may find it helpful either before you leave, or if you’re still considering if you will join our 2024 Flametree Bali Iyengar Yoga Retreat.

Room allocation for this yoga retreat Bali 2024

For those who are sharing, Chris Lalor will allocate the bungalows and rooms as soon as we know who exactly is attending, and their preferences.

To give your preferences, please use the form on our Bali Yoga Retreat purchasing page.

The bungalows take either two or three. If two, options include one person on the upper level, and one on the lower level, in the same bungalow.

There’s also some double room options for couples etc.

Each bungalow is also very roomy… as you can see on the pictures on our retreat purchasing page, and Facebook page.

If you have not already, just download the personal information form on the same page that you use to buy (also under the PASSES tab on site). Please use it to tell Flametree about your preferences around rooms etc.

For those who have bought single rooms, or are sharing, the resort will know which room you are in. So, when you arrive, just check with reception in the normal way.

​Airport transfers to and from airport

To arrange a taxi, the easiest option is to use the private driver that several of us have used for many years. His name is Wayan, and he speaks English well, and drives safely. (He does not give us any commission!).

The best way to reach him is to call or text him on WhatsApp, at +62 878 6314 6433.

If you have not used WhatsApp, it’s essentially a FREE, safe, global phone and  massaging service owned by Meta (who own Facebook). It’s widely used in Bali, and works well. See more below on using WhatsApp.

If there are more than 4 for a cab, Wayan can arrange other cars. (He lives near the retreat resort).

Let Flametree know your arrival time at the airport, and we can also tell you who else you can potentially share a taxi with.

You can also liaise with him around the return journey, or using taxi tours to local sites on the half day off in the middle of the retreat. (At the end of the retreat, there’ll be plenty of people heading to the airport, with whom you can share taxis).

If you book with him before you go, he will be waiting for you with your name on a board he will be holding up as you come out of Customs. (Plus, via the airport WIFI, you can liaise with him via WhatsApp).

For affordable yoga retreat Bali options, see our our INSTALMENTS page.

meditation retreat bali 2024

Using Wayan’s taxi, or other drivers he can arrange, is the most hassle free way to get to the Pondok Pisang retreat. (Picture from Google Earth).

One way fare taxi per car in rupiah is AUD$45

Wayan knows various people are coming to the retreat over the period around it’s start time.

He also knows that you’re going to the Flametree Pondok Pisang or other local nearby resorts.

So, he knows the addresses. Just tell him where you want to be dropped, and then enjoy the ride.

If you want, ask Wayan for a commentary as you go.

Then, on arrival, split the fare among you, depending on how many there are.

Getting some Indonesian Rupiah before you go is probably easiest, and gives you the best rate. But, you can obviously change money at the airports.

The total one-way fare for the whole car … with up to 4 people if you want… will be 450,000 Rupiah (AUD$45).

Drivers in Bali also expect a small tip.

We deliberately did not include the taxi fare in the retreat cost, because people have told us they prefer the freedom of arranging it all directly themselves, and possibly including other places as they go.

As you can see, especially if you share taxis, it’s not expensive.

By the way, we suggest that you don’t use the many taxi drivers who will solicit you at the Denpasar airport. Their “first price”, and probably even their “last price”, is likely to be much more than Wayan’s AUD$45.

Setting up WhatsApp for texts & calls

By the way, if you’ve never used WhatsApp, it’s a free messaging service owned by Meta (that owns Facebook). If you have WIFI, it gives you free text and calls.

If you want any directions on setting up or using WhatsApp, here is a simple one pager by the Australian Government on HOW TO USE WHATSAPP.

To arrange a taxi, another option is to contact the Pondok Pisang resort direct on [email protected]  OR, phone the resort on + 62 363 41065. They will charge slightly more than taxi driver Wayan, who we discuss above.

Passports and vaccinations

Remember, Indonesia requires that you must have 6 months of passport validity (& no tears in the passport).

Indonesia is no longer requiring COVID vaccination. This is reported at many sites, including this set of useful Bali information (https://bali.com/)

So, try the best affordable yoga retreat Bali has, including the best vegan yoga retreat Bali option.

For affordable yoga retreat Bali options, see our our INSTALMENTS page.

Flametree retreat excursions

Some of the many local Balinese culture trips you can do. But remember, especially if you’re worried about “Bali Belly”, just eat the vegetarian food at the retreat resort. Plus, if you wish, get the best vegan yoga retreat Bali option you’ll find.

30 tourist visa & customs declaration

To travel to Indonesia, you will need a 30-day tourist visa. You can apply online for an e-Visa here or purchase on arrival at Denpasar airport. The cost is AUD$50.00.

Some have suggested to us that you’re better to get it there, to ensure that’s it’s findable on the spot.

But others have found that it is definitely faster, when you do reach the airport, to have bought it online before you go.

There is also a separate Tourist Levy of approximately AUD$15. Cashless payments can be made online, or at the airport. (There are some spot checks on it).

You will also need to complete a Customs Declaration form. You can either do this 3 days before departure here and save the barcode on your phone, or you can complete it on arrival at Denpasar airport. This is free of charge.

local Balinese dancing in Candidasa

There will be plenty of options to see and experience Balinese culture. We found these dancers at a ceremony just down the lane from Pondok Pisang and Sea Breeze retreat. accommodation.

Travel insurance and medical insurance is recommended

We suggest you have both travel insurance and medical insurance.

Here is a useful guide from the Australian Government, including Choice, about travel insurance.

Obviously, we make no recommendations on the insurance providers to use. However, this medical evacuation insurance blog post has much useful information.

It’s also worth checking what’s provided by any existing private health care you may have.

If you have any tips from your own investigations, we’re happy to pass them onto others.

Even though you want be looking for the most affordable yoga treat Bali has, get an excellent medical insurance cover.

Spots to visit in Bali

The Pondok Pisang retreat venue is on the east coast, on the right hand side of the map, about opposite the ship with number 58 on it.

Students loved the recent Bali retreat

I worked closely with my team to ensure the recent Bali retreat went off very well. All the feedback I’ve had indicates that it did.

Among other things, I know that those who wanted a vegan yoga retreat Bali style, certainly got everything they wanted.

For example, on the second last day of the retreat, Kelley commented by email:

The retreat has been amazing…. I’m not quite ready to go home tomorrow.

Plus, Helen, in a post you’ll see on Facebook, said:

An experience never forgotten… to be repeated again!

Gillian, a long term Flametree student, who’s been on several retreats at Pondok Pisang, said recently on Flametree’s Facebook Page:

…as always, please can you put me down for a spot on the next retreat. Can’t wait.

If you wish, see more Flametree yoga or meditation retreat reviews.

To ensure you have a wonderful, powerful retreat, I (Chris Lalor), and my team, will be doing everything I’ve learnt in over a decade of running retreats in Bali, and 30 years of teaching Iyengar yoga. Please join me at our next retreat.
