    The one week Bahay Kalipay yoga retreat was excellent. Very simple accommodation with great raw food meals, very friendly staff, good yoga instruction in the vinyasana flow and ashtanga traditions, with a variety of competent and caring instructors, plus additional programs, discussions and tours presented throughout the week. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience with compatible participants from all over the world interested in furthering their yoga and cleansing practice. Loved its simplicity and dedication to eco values. Would highly recommend it to those interested in the yogic path who are not seeking the high end resort alternative.

    The "House of Happiness" was truly a great experience. I feel blessed to have stayed the entire 12 days I booked. I was trying to run away from this place after at the first few days because it was scary to look at myself. I had very little distractions other than to work on myself. The beautiful thing about BK is it strips away everything that distracts us from our busy, noise, distracting life we've created. It allows you to look into your soul. Take the opportunity to experience the wonderful programming, delicious raw food, the engagement with great staff and guests, and the peaceful tropical space that was meticulously created with love. Stay here, look at yourself, take care of your heart, mind, and soul and you can get the very best experience. Set your intention before you go, and only then you will get what you need. Go for it!

    Bahay Kalipay is a rustic resort conceived to offer not only a dietary detox, but also to give you the space and surroundings to refill spiritually and energetically. The food is truly amazing - they make it so easy to eat raw vegan during a week, it is impressive! The resort staff is very playful, respectful, helpful and genuinely nice. Kim (nutritionist) was knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns, Ren (yoga teacher) provided very enjoyable and demanding morning yoga classes, Mukti and Imana gave a very nice o'oponopono meditation session, and Kelly (reiki therapist) literally made the energies flow again. The resort is simple, nothing fancy. If you are looking for luxury, don't go there. But if you are looking for re-centering and re-energizing through good food, good yoga and good meditation, in a nice and simple environment, you will love it there.

    I had a wonderful time at Bahay Kalipay. They were very welcoming and kind, the food was amazing and the workshops were enlightening. I learned some new skills to relax and to find inner peace. The yoga was challenging but so good. I'm taking home some great memories and being there has given me an opportunity to reflect. The rooms were also nice and I slept well on the beds. Watching the sunrise was also a highlight. My only grumble would be that I wasn't picked up for three hours and when I was, I realized it was pretty close to the airport so may have cost me 50 pesos to get there, instead of the 500 they charge when you book. I think that is quite steep. But all in all, great time. I would definitely go back if I get the chance.

    Just back from a week deep nature cleanse at Balay Kalipay. It was a marvellous week. From the moment I arrived, I was made to feel like one of the family. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in answering questions. The days are well structured with yoga, meditation, workshops and everyone joins together for the meals. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. We all had lots of fun too. I will always remember my week there where I met some really good friends. A perfect week.

    My experience has mixed feelings. The place itself and the staff were more than amazing, however the yoga itself was disappointing. I was looking forward to the Ashtanga yoga but only got it once since the teacher wasn't in the mood of teaching it that week. Also, the Vinyasa missed the flow that I've experienced in previous classes, although the yoga teachers were very attentive and helpful in all new moves. But overall it was exactly what I needed on my trip and for that I'm grateful. Thank you.

    I experienced Bahay Kalipay for 7 days on the 6 n / 7 day detox and cleanse program in April 2014. I had an absolute amazing, beautiful, spiritual time there. On arrival you immediately feel you are part of a family and a community of warm, kind, loving, friendly people all working together in unison.I tried various classes, yoga, qigong, tai chi, reiki and much more. The food was amazing, nutritious and tasty. The massages were super! I had a craniosacral therapy session with Marte which I loved. I met so many special people who all added greatly to my experience which was 100% positive and I can't wait to be able to go back for more!

    I loved this place, like really loved it.I have been recommending in since I left 6 months ago.For me it was a safe haven to get back to myself. I work in a big city and was stressed and run down. Here I got a break and exercised my body and mind. The people that volunteer at Bahay Kalipay take the time to plan uniquely deep exercises, from inner dance to heaping art classes. I had a deep lesson on Buddhism values and powerful yoga classes that were clearly organized and taking into account each students personal needs and goals. I am so thankful for the kindness and support I received at the 'happy house.' The food is great! I'm vegan already, but the food here is a real treat, from freshly made vegan cheese cake to beautifully prepared soups and salads. I felt healthy and alive, the quiet area and beautifully natural setting is great for the soul. You can see it in the faces of the people that stay there long term, they know that this place hasa special energy. I cant wait to return.

    I really enjoyed my time in BK with all the amazing teachers, volunteers and other guests there. I was able to disconnect from my everyday life... to come back to the earth. The place is beautiful, so peaceful and simple. People are amazing, open minded, positive and always ready to share knowledge and experiences, to give good advice or to simply listen. The raw vegan food is incredibly yummy and so healthy! I learned so many things about well being and awareness through workshops, yoga classes, talks, movies and my own experiences there. I connected with my inner being, felt the energy in it strongly during inner dance sessions and non-doing/coconut feast day. Now I feel so present, centered, peaceful and happy. My body feels so strong and my mind so sharp. Thank you so much BK! See you soon hopefully.

    My stay there was literally life changing. They had the great staffs, amazing food, raw food cunningly made into various delicious dishes, and good yoga. This place can give you an opportunity to really make changes in your life and reset yourself. I came out healthier and a tea-total vegetarian! I wasn't expecting that.

    My journey unexpectedly led me to Bahay Kalipay and it will always be one of those moments in my life that I could pinpoint a shift. What started as a 7-day DNC stay, with original plans to continue to explore the Philippines, ended up being 10. I spent it with beautiful souls. Kim, Tadeya, Mathias, Vanessa, Gia, were just some of the staffs that made it such an amazing place. I spent it getting to know myself through meditation, yoga, inner dance, long conversations, cleansing my body via delicious raw meals, and being completely with myself. Go. Be open. Be free. You are worth the investment. I'm ever so grateful.

    Bahay Kalipay is an amazing place to spend some time for a detox, yoga, and spiritual development or just relaxing and taking a break from everyday life. All the people working there are really friendly and helpful and make you feel comfortable and welcome. Raw food served there was the best I've ever tasted and made me feel really healthy and gave me a real boost of energy. The inner dance sessions are something not to be missed, if you give it chance it can give a new direction to your life. Bahay Kalipay is a perfect place for healing and taking steps towards your true identity.

  • Dr. Nick Smith England

    For me, the inner dance represents the missing aspect of practical spirituality I was searching for to help elevate mass human consciousness above petty materialism, a universally accessible raising of awareness that can embrace the ecology of our planet. It is a potential and actual force to help us return to simplicity, basic goodness and our authentic individual beauty.

    I explored, felt, loved and experienced my body moving in ways it never had in the past. A knot I have had in my middle back ever since a car accident two years ago is gone!

  • Katrina Philippine Daily Inquirer

    All I could comprehend in this in-between state was that something had opened up within that allowed me to see into another dimension of myself, one that acknowledged an inner life force that had long been dormant.

  • Agnes Philippine Daily Inquirer

    August 2015. Bahay Kalipay Detox and Yoga Retreat House website

    Inner Dance is about flow, tuning in to deeper psychic, emotional and spiritual energies that exist within each of us and allowing these inner forces to move outward; it needs childlike trust, a suspension of the constant stream of mental chitchat that occupies our heads. When it happens, there is such a sense of release, of healing and coming home to ones deepest musicpersonal and unique. All the layers of conventions , coping mechanisms and survival efforts simply fall away .One can touch the Core, our Original Source.

    Once the blockages are released, the initiate often proceeds into a trance-like dance that can be equivalent to the crumbling away of ones masks which allows a freedom from personal blockages.
