Welcome to the Island of the Gods. Experience connection to source and dive into the rich spiritual culture from which our practice of yoga is rooted. Our retreat center located in the heart of Ubud, one of the most sought after locations for yogis all over the world. Daily yoga classes, a traditional Balinese cooking class, luxurious spa treatments and scooter excursions to some of Bali's most beautiful temples and spirit filled locations plus plenty of free time for reflection, journaling, shopping, exploring and taking it all in. Connect to the Divine in one of the most beautiful places on this planet.
Our annual event in July hosted at the iconic, Hollywood inspired Lafayette Hotel Swim Club & Bungalows. This one day yoga festival features locally renowned teachers offering morning meditation, an all-levels vinyasa class, all-levels acro workshop, stand-up paddle board playtime (in the pool!) plus a few other surprises! Early bird tickets highly recommended as we tend to sell out!
A mirage of beauty, located just 45 minutes south of La Paz lies a secluded paradise retreat center, Palapas las Ventanas. This retreat is a true adventure; in addition to daily yoga classes, optional fitness classes and healthy meals you'll have a bevvy of activities to choose from including: stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, swimming with whale sharks, fishing (oh yeah, totally serious for all my dudes out there!), whale watching, group fitness classes, tanning and relaxing on a private beach, exploring our little corner of paradise and so much more! On this adventure you're welcome to do as much or as little as you like. A true create-your-own-adventure style retreat. We will also participate in a Seva (service) project planting trees and shrubs at local elementary school as our way of giving back to the local community.
Heart Space is dedicated to building a tribe of self-empowered and connected yogis through adventure seeking retreats, creative yoga workshops and transformational events. Our mission is to create a global community of hearts united by providing the space and resources for passionate practitioners to connect, transform, and serve.
Heart Space was first created in 2012 as a way to bring students together outside the space of the studio and into the space of connection; to themselves and to others through adventure seeking retreats and transformational events. Created by Lauren Autenrieth, RYT500; when she's not teaching yoga, traveling the world on one of her epic retreats or hosting the next Yoga Pool Party you can find her snuggled up on her couch with a book and her favorite late night snack, peanut butter.
Lauren has made the exploration of the heart her personal mission; on retreats you can expect daily yoga and meditation classes, local and healthy meals, and full days of rich culture, adventure and raw connection.
See the world through the eyes of your Heart Space.
ON ONE OF OUR INCREDIBLE RETREATS
You deserve an adventure.
You work hard. Your days are full of the hustle and the bustle. We totally get it.
If you're anything like me you get lost in your work, you pour your heart and soul into it and take pride in what you create. Most of the time it's rewarding but even those of us with the best jobs (ahem...I teach yoga and travel for a living) get burnt out, lose inspiration and just plain need a break. How am I supposed to support my students if my metaphorical giving well has run dry. For me, travel isn't just a want it's necessary to my self-care. Travel has a myriad of physical, mental and emotional health benefits including reduced cortisol levels (stress-induced hormones), a shift in perspective that you're sure to bring back with you; suddenly a hard day at the office doesn't seem so bad when you see people in developing countries toiling in sun-scorched fields from morning to dark and still managing to maintain a genuine smile when they pass you on the street.
Gratitude abounds when you are able to put the world in perspective outside the lens of just your experience. No one comes back from a journey the way they started it.
