About the yoga:  Jessie has been offering the Radiance Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat since 2002. Jessie's Radiance Yoga Classes combine gentle warm up sequences moving through the postures with breath awareness plus holding in postures longer to build strength, stability and alignment. Many variations of the postures are given so people can practice according to their experience, physical condition and individual needs. Yoga props are often used to go deeper and to experience complete relaxation and renewal - especially in Jessie's afternoon Restoration Yoga Classes where the focus is on deep rest, support and relaxation. The Yoga classes are taught by Jessie Chapman and are suitable for the complete beginner to the long term practitioner. Lee will be assisting throughout the retreat giving adjustments and one on one attention in the yoga classes and guiding the walks and spa journey's with Jessie so everyone is well cared for. Click here to read more about Jessie, Lee and the yoga.

BALI RETREAT TESTIMONIALS:

“The standout thing for me on this retreat was slowing down my pace. I was so wound up on arrival that the yoga, food (and company), beautiful setting and unbelievable treatments bought me completely to peace. I can’t thank you enough. I feel completely rejuvenated.”
Martine, 29, Editor - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

“Jessie’s yoga knowledge was incredible, her guidance reassuring. The treatments were enlightening and healing. Bali a wonderful place. Thank you for a fulfilling week.”
Lynne, 48, Pharmacist / Gymnastic Coach - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

"Along with my two sisters and mother, we recently treated ourselves to an amazing week in Bali with Jessie and facilitators. Being totally removed from our 9 children and daily routines we were able to submerse ourselves into yoga practice and achieve a inner peace and relaxation that we have not had since the children arrived. I can not recommend this retreat more highly."
Marcelle, 35, Heath and PE Teacher - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

“It has been a privilege to experience this gift of teaching, learning and healing. I leave with a strong commitment to follow my yoga practice and my own goals, and an open heart to all that comes my way.”
Donata, 36, Restaurateur, Café & Gallery owner - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

"The week in Bali has been journey of self discovery and reflection.  I arrived anxious, stressed and tired and I left feeling lighter, happier and clearer in my mind having learnt so much. Thanks to Jessie and the wonderful group of people on the retreat. I have gained so much inspiration and knowledge about yoga and life that I have made many positive changes to my own lifestyle.  This retreat was like chicken soup for the soul.  Thank you again so much - I can't wait to return to the next one!"
Gemma, 33, Teacher - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

'I planned this escape after going through a tough time and thought it was time to give something to ‘me’. Jessie and Lee were amazing and provided classes to cater for all yoga abilities; support to ensure correct technique and a genuine open trusting environment both physically and emotionally. I met some amazing like minded people and would love to do it again!'
Kelly, 26, Social Worker - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

“Being in the tropics, eating wholesome food, exercising daily and being pampered was definitely the right ingredients to revamp the feeling of relaxation and happiness. By the end of the Radiance Retreat there was a great sense of achievement as my yoga had progressed and I had had a wonderful time by myself and in the company of wonderful people”.
Karen, Travel Agent – Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

"If you have come so far that you are reading the testimonials.... book the retreat!!! You will not be disappointed. The Bali retreat provides the perfect environment to get away from it all, spoil yourself, meet new people, spend time on your own, and develop your yoga practice. Jessie and her facilitators are very inspiring."
Melissa, 27, Doctor - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

"The Bali retreat was excellent. The yoga itself catered to all levels and Jessie and her facilitators were excellent at providing hands on assistance to those who needed it (I was one!). I think the supervision really helped advance my practise. Ubud and its surroundings were also a highlight and somewhere I would readily return. The accommodation was fantastic and the organised activities were a breath of fresh air. The food was wonderful and whole retreat was flexible - I never felt that I was caught up in a lettuce-eating yoga boot-camp, in fact, it was nothing like it."
Simon, 35, Research Analyst - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

“Our aim was to have time away together somewhere where we could relax yet be active. This yoga week in Bali has surpassed all our expectations with its people, beauty and intensity. We have renewed, relaxed and reenergized.”
Roger, 48, Dentist - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

“I came to the retreat not knowing what to expect, but looking for inspiration. Well, I definitely found that inspiration! The teachers were wonderful and created a harmonious, non-judgmental, serene environment. I feel recharged and invigorated and look forward to developing my own yoga practice. I would definitely recommend the retreat and would love to return.”
Georgia, 35, Finance Manager
- Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

"An amazing week with amazing people. Jessie and her facilitators created the perfect environment to promote both enthusiasm and peace.  My yoga has improved dramatically through Jessie’s daily instruction and the adjustment of her very knowledgeable facilitators.  I think this may become an annual pilgrimage!"
Pip, 33, Corporate Affairs Manager - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

"A well-balanced, nurturing retreat where it's all about You! Jessie Chapman's Yoga sessions are effective and versatile, making sure that everyone of any yoga level will get the most out of their practice. I realised that in only one week I can improve my flexibilty, attempt new postures and learn to listen to my body's capabilites and limits. Combined with the Spa Journeys and Jessie's local knowledge of the area, this retreat will leave you feeling renewed, empowered and ready to face the world again!"
