Tamara Yoga Retreats

Kavi Yogiraj, Alan Finger and Yogiraj, Sarah Platt-Finger are both traveling from New York City to co-teach with Tamara, at the ISHTA Bliss Retreat again next year! They loved it so much this year.

They weren’t the only ones! We had such amazing feedback from those attending this year, like: “My experience being part of the ISHTA Bliss Retreat was overwhelmingly rejuvenating for both my mind and body. The Tamara Yoga family was deeply welcoming and caring and a tonic for me to take home for nurturing my soul. Thank you Tamara and River for this profound experience.” __Ingrid

“The ISHTA Bliss Retreat was a life-changing experience. I’ve never been able to reach this level of calm and clarity. Al, Sarah and Tamara fostered an environment of peace, knowledge and safety that helped me grow in immeasurable ways.”

The retreat in Ubud with Tamara Yoga is everything and more. It is an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and into a place where you can connect with yourself, your spirit, nature and the most incredible ISHTA community of people. The combination of love comforts your soul in a way you never thought possible…and you never want to leave.” __Bec

“I didn’t really know what to expect, so I came with an open mind, ready to absorb whatever was on offer. What I like is that you can make the retreat whatever you want it to be. You have the choice to make it very immersive and contemplative, or just enjoy the yoga and make it a more active, exploratory experience. You can rest and soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Ananda cottages, or get out and about and explore thriving Ubud. Tamara and River put every effort into ensuring everything flows smoothly, to ensure your stay is restful and rejuvenating, I will definitely be looking forward to the next one.”            __ Penelope

What is ISHTA?

ISHTA stands for Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda. The word ISHTA means ‘that which resonates with your spirit’. This means that whatever your level and experience with yoga may be, this retreat will be perfect for you as an individual. In fact, this retreat is an experience like no other.

The ISHTA Yoga Retreat Experience

Imagine the sounds of nature as you stroll through beautiful tropical gardens to meet Sarah and Tamara for an exhilarating Yoga class. This will then be followed by meditation practice with Alan in our stunning, wood floored, open-air yoga studio.

Picture eating delicious, healthy food with great, like-minded people after your blissful, extended yoga and meditation practice. You might decide to indulge in a massage, explore the city of Ubud, visit the Elephant Safari Park or Monkey Forest, attend an Indonesian cooking class or maybe even take refuge in a well-deserved rest.

Your yoga practice will deepen as you learn a wealth of knowledge passed down from an authentic lineage of teachers and you’ll integrate this into your daily practice, both on and off the mat. You will leave our retreat feeling lighter, more inspired and grounded in the knowledge of yoga.

Immerse Yourself on Our Bali Yoga Retreat

The ISHTA Bliss Retreat is held at the Ananda Cottages in Ubud, renowned as the cultural and traditional heart of Bali. Ananda Cottages are a unique, traditional style of accommodation owned and run by a local family. The cottages are immersed in and amongst rice paddies, green fields and lush jungle.

Research indicates spending time in nature can lead to a faster recovery from stress, decreased mental fatigue, restored mental clarity, increased sense of wellbeing, improved physical health and healing, and even improved performance.

We invite you to enjoy some amazing yoga in the gorgeous, warm climate of Bali. The retreat will be lots of fun with yoga, morning and afternoon, and a meditation class each morning. You will have free time each day to rest and explore Ubud. There are great restaurants and shopping close by as well as a range of massage and Ayurvedic treatments at very reasonable rates.

Discover Yourself with Tamara Yoga Retreats

By the end of the retreat you’ll feel more peaceful, focused and refreshed and more open to face the challenges that life throws at you.

As a student from this year’s retreat said: “I found a sense of peace and freedom I could never have imagined. I had forgotten who I was and what I loved, and being surrounded by such open, beautiful people, the nature and the meditation has allowed me to be me again.” __ Caroline
