Desa Seni School of Yoga Bali Yoga Detox Retreat Program

When one thinks of detox they usually focus on cleansing the liver or intestines, but the body has more than just two organs of elimination. A detox can help the body to break through persistent struggles with our physical and mental health and well-being. Toxins constantly bombard the human body on a daily basis. In our food there are hormones, pesticides and numerous chemicals. We ingest chemicals in our water if it is not correctly filtered. We regularly take prescription medications such as antibiotics and other toxic chemicals.

If you have had any surgical procedure, you now have chemicals in your body stored both in the organs and also on a cellular level. If you smoke, drink caffeine or alcohol you have toxins in your body. After a while the organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, skin, and lymphatic system) get overloaded and cannot function properly, leading to poor health and a poor quality of life.

Desa Seni’s unique detoxification package combines traditional Chinese medicinal (TCM) therapies which include acupuncture, moxabustion, cupping, osteopathy, medicinal tea, yoga, and meditation, as well as nutrition for a balanced, non-intrusive, and complete holistic treatment.

Desa Seni School of Yoga’s detoxification program opens and regulates all the pathways of elimination, naturally guiding unwanted body waste out and supporting its return to homeostasis. How do acupuncture and Chinese Medicine aid in detoxifying the body? Acupuncture works to stimulate all the naturally occurring processes that function in our body (powered by our Qi or prana) through points on the surface of the body that have a relationship with the internal organs.

Along with other therapies like cupping and osteopathy, it works to clear and drain build up, while its use with moxabustion (herba artemisia argyi) helps to build where the body lacks. Immediate changes with treatment are seen with better quality of sleep, stabilized energy, improved digestion, and reduction in pain or tension in the muscular body.

With a full, condensed course of treatment done over a short period of time, as is the design of this program, a significant change, and long lasting results are created. Acupuncture is a proven safe, effective and relaxing, non-invasive therapy that has been used for over 2000 years in Asia and currently all over the world in clinics and hospitals. Desa Seni’s acupuncturist is nationally certified in the USA and holds a license with the State of California Acupuncture Board.

Things to do (optional)

Batuan temple

A beautiful Hindu temple situated in Batuan Village, Batuan Temple is well ornamented by the unique carving of Balinese style of the temple building and the entrance gate. This temple is used by the local residents to pray to the gods and also opened for visitors to visit.


Up north, in the middle of the island lies the Bedugul region, located seven hundred meters above sea level with mountain tops reaching 2000 meters up towards the heavens. The climate here is cooler, which makes it perfect for growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers. An explosion of colors will be greeting you as you reach the local market where you will be surrounded by tropical flowers, spices, and freshly grown crops.

The botanical gardens of Bali are also found here, covering an area of 160 hectares. Make your way through it on one of the six walks or drive through. Colorful birds, beautiful flowers and exotic trees outline the gardens. Enjoy the view looking out over the sacred Crater Lake Bratan with the mountains lining up in the background. On the lake, you will also find the very picturesque Ulun Danu temple.

The quiet and luscious serenity up here gives a completely different experience than to the one from southern Bali. On the way down south, you will go to the rice fields of Jatiluwih, which in 2007 was renowned by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Overwhelmingly beautiful, this is a must see for one wanting to experience some of Bali’s most famous sights.

Ceking and rice fields

Tegalalang village is a traditional village located in the north of Ubud featured by the amazing panorama of rice terrace. Once visiting this tourist destination, you will be brought to imagine how the Balinese farmers work on the rice terraces.


Gunung Kawi is an ancient rocky temple situated in Pakerisan River, near Tampaksiring village - Gianyar Regency in Bali. This archaeological complex is carved out of the living rock, dating back to the eleventh century. The temple with majesty and richness in history has been proposed by Governor of Bali to be listed on the World Heritage Sites.

The countryside where the complex is located offers a beautiful view of lush and footpath down to reach the temple, passing through spectacular rice terraces. The appealing, mystifying, and magnifying natural sceneries from the footpath, which leads from the road down to the temple will be more impressive, with the sound of water trickling along the irrigation channels at the bottom of a valley. The only sound you will hear is that produced by farmers who work on their rice fields.

Kemenuh village

This village is known for their wood carvings. The artisans produce very good quality wood carvings, made from hardwoods such as teak, mahogany, ebony, and hibiscus wood.


This excursion will take you to the holiest place in Bali. You might know Bali as “the island of Gods”, a religion and cultural beliefs are very much alive here. In Kintamani, one enters the sacred home of the Gods. In the Balinese cosmological order, there are Gods, humans, and demons. The sky and the mountains belong to the Gods, “the higher world”, whereas “the lower world”, the sea and the below, belongs to the demons.

The humans reside in the midst of it all and carry the responsibility to balance the forces between them. Mount Batur is an active volcano that has erupted three times in the past century, in 1917, 1927, and in 1995. Up here next to the volcano, you would also find lake Batur, one of the four lakes on Bali.

Besakih temple

The temple is located 1000 meters above sea level on the slopes of Mount Agung. This is the mother temple of Bali, the biggest and most important temple on the island. The Besakih temple is a complex of 23 separated temples, and the sacredness of this area follows the story of how it could have been buried under massive streams of lava. In 1963, due to a series of volcanic eruptions from Mount Agung nearly 1700 people were killed, but the lava missed the temple area by meters. This was regarded as a miracle and seen as a sign from the Gods.

Puri Lukisan museum

The Puri Lukisan Museum is the oldest art museum in Bali. It is home to the finest collection of modern traditional Balinese painting and wood carving on the island, spanning from the pre-Independence war (1930 to 1945) to the post-Independence war (1945 to present) era. The collection includes important examples of all of the artistic styles in Bali.

Tanah Lot

This temple truly is a beautiful sight. It was founded by Dang Hyang Nirarth, a religious man of the “Saivite”, a path within Hinduism that reveres the God Shiva as the Supreme Being. Belonging to this part of Hinduism, it is believed that Shiva is in all, as the creator, destroyer, preserver, concealer, and revealer. In the 16th century, Dang Hyang Nirarth was on a sacred journey walking from the west to east coast of Bali. When he found this big rock in the water, he went there to meditate. He felt vibrations here of a sacred place, he later suggested it a site for a temple.

This temple was named “Tanah Lot”, in Indonesian meaning “the small island floating on the sea”. Dang Hyang Nirarth is also the founder of the padmasa architecture, a Balinese style of temples that are considered to be the embodiment of the supreme god Shiva, although Tanah Lot is devoted to the god in the form of Dewa Baruna or Bhatara Segara, the powers of the sea.

This temple is located only 45 minutes up north from Canggu and is well worth the drive as this is one of the most picturesque temples on the island. Around the area, you might also get to see the black and white stripy sea snakes, which should not be disturbed as they are said to be protecting the temple from evil. It is suggested to leave Desa Seni around 16:30.

Toya Bungkah

This village features two natural hot spring pools, the perfect place for all members of the family to fully unwind. Heated deep within the earth, the healing mineral water is colorless and odorless from the source that is located on the property. For hundreds of years, this clear carbonated water has created legends of miraculous curative powers.


Take a drive down to the southwest coast of the Bukit peninsula, where the magnificent Uluwatu temple is built on the edge of a seventy-six-meter high cliff. The temple is one of the oldest in Bali and is guarding the island against evil spirits. Made of black coral, this is one of the nine directional temples across the island.

The Uluwatu temple offers a fantastic view, especially around sunset when this majestic creation reaches up to the pink, orange and purple sky, magical! Right next to the temple is the scene of the Kecak dance, a Balinese dance show with the drama of a Romeo and Juliet story, but with a happier ending. Fire, masks, and dance, all in an outdoor setting creates a spectacular scene you do not want to miss!

Before leaving the Bukit, the southern tip of Bali, you need to stop at one of the Jimbaran beach cafés for a seafood dinner on the beach. Stay barefoot in the sand and enjoy candlelights, sea breeze and the luxury of fresh lobster. It is suggested that you left Desa Seni around 16:00 for this tour.
