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 improve your yoga or breath meditation, or both.

In addition, Chris Lalor, as an accredited Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher, 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.

A dedicated yoga room is the most important feature that an affordable yoga retreat Bali has to have.

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.

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.

By the way, if you’re serious about coffee, consider taking own, as we mention above. Maybe even include your own plunger, or at least higher quality coffee bags. Most Bali coffee is weak by Westerner standards.

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

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!

The resort provides unlimited bottled water.

This includes cleaning your teeth 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 food is vegetarian. 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.

Best 6 day yoga retreat Bali has.

bali yoga retreat

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 5 day 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 there are more than 4 for a cab, he can arrange other cars. (He lives near the retreat resort). You can obviously liaise with him around the return, or using him on the half day off in the middle of the retreat.

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.

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

Flametree Yoga's Pondok Pisang package

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 per car in rupiah is AUD$45

Wayan knows you’re coming, and that you’re going to the Flametree Pondok Pisang retreat.

Split the fare among you, depending on how many there are.

Getting some Indonesian Rupiah before you go is probably easiest… 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. As you can see, if you share taxis, it’s not expensive.

Setting up WhatsApp for texts & calls

By the way, if you’ve never used WhatsApp, it’s a service owned by Meta / 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 Wayan.

Passports and vaccinations

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

From 9 June 2023, Indonesia is no longer requiring COVID vaccination. This is reported at many sites, including this set of useful Bali information (

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.

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.

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.

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!
