A place to unravel, open & bloom. This down-to-earth immersion is for you if you want to connect with your deepest wisdom and recharge on every level.
'Shakti' refers to the potent feminine energy that is said to be the power behind all of creation. Whether you know it already or not, women of all ages and walks of life benefit from being in Sacred Space with other women. Tuning into your own Shakti is tuning into a potent healing force with limitless potential.
During this incredible week of Yoga, Health & Connection you will be challenged & thoroughly nurtured - physically, energetically, emotionally & spiritually. Each day we will immerse in the sacred feminine; exploring the ancient wisdom of the Goddesses of Yoga Mythology and cultivating their presence in our modern lives.
The intention of this retreat is to create a safe environment for you to expand and deepen your practice and tune into your own inner knowing. You will be guided on your individual journey - whether you have been practising Yoga for years, or just beginning.
The training is open to absolutely everyone. Yoga Teachers & Therapists are eligible to receive a 50 hour Continuing Education credit with the International Yoga Alliance.

World-class, affordable treatments & massage are available in house and the gorgeous distractions of Ubud are only a 5 minute drive away.
Optional extra outings for the adventurous include sunrise Volcano trekking and a traditional Balinese Water Temple Ceremony.
“The accommodation was stunning, the food was pure, made from the heart and delicious. The balance of the sessions was rewarding and satisfying (even for a true beginner) and exploring the Goddess' of Yoga was mystical, magical, intuitive and empowering. Most of all I was in awe of how safe I felt within the group and especially with Uma (Jess). By safe, I mean that the space was held with respect for each other and the intention of the work has such deep integrity that it allowed me to connect to that part of myself. What genuinely comes to me is a tidal wave of positive, gushing appreciation - thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” Carla Fletcher, Artist
"Uma's Yoga Retreat was one of the absolute highlights of the year for me. I cannot recommend her as a teacher and the spaces she creates any more highly than I do. I am not, for the record, a magic bendy person, but that's the beauty of working with Uma - she just meets you wherever you're at, and helps you from there. In a word? Awesome." Clare Bowditch
"I had never been on a structured retreat before going to Uma's retreat in Bali. I really didn't know what to expect and I was completely blown away. Her attention to detail in creating a wonderful healing, relaxing, unwinding, fun and inspiring environment was extraordinary. The setting at the beautiful Guesthouse was perfect, and the wonderful staff there were very attentive and so gorgeous to be around. I came away from the week ready to book the next one in. I learnt a lot, I let go, I surrendered, I opened, I cried, I laughed, I ate GREAT food, and in the end I felt so grateful that Uma is in the world and has the power and vision to guide us so beautifully. What a gift. Thank you - you are a true teacher. I would recommend this retreat to EVERYONE!" Danielle Caruana (MamaKin)
