Retreat Title: Low Tide Yoga surf and yoga retreats
Dates: February 14-21 (ten retreats throughout 2015)
Name of Teacher: Indrawati Widjanarko
Location: Medewi, Bali

Description: Low Tide Yoga surf and yoga holiday retreats are held overlooking the surf break at Medewi, a little village out on the quiet west coast of Bali.Medewi is on the west coast of Bali, a scenic three-hour drive from the airport. Our holiday retreats are seven nights, and run from Saturday to Saturday.

On the first and last nights, you will be pampered in a beautiful five-star villa – think luxurious bubble baths; delicious, fresh, healthy food; and the option to have a massage or spa treatment in the privacy of your suite. The villa is in Jimbaran, just a five-minute walk from the beach and a 15-minute drive from the airport.

The surf and yoga holiday itself is held in Medewi, and here you will stay in a lovely, simple hotel that's less than 200 metres from the beach. The beauty about staying here is that once you arrive, everything is just a few minutes' walk away – our yoga pondok, the surf shops, the point, restaurants, massage and beach are all within 200 metres of the hotel. That sense of freedom that comes with simply wandering down to the point, coffee in hand, to check on the swell, or to meander along the beach to get a massage, or to walk through the palms to get to our peaceful yoga pondok, really is hard to beat.

We want you to revel in that freedom, and so the only structure that the days have are two yoga classes, which are scheduled around the tide. The days are yours to do as you please. While in Medewi – you'll be here for five nights – you will enjoy five free hour-long massages, which you can take any time; unlimited surfboard hire; and one half-day activity (snorkelling, jungle trekking or Balinese crafts). Breakfast is included, and for lunch and dinner we recommend you get to know the restaurants around the beach.
