Words from some of our previous participants
We came to The Place looking for connection and a new beginning and we found so much more. Before we even arrived, we had a call with Jean-Claude and it started the connection to what we wanted to achieve and to ensure we were ready from the moment we arrived to work on our desired outcome for the couples retreat.
From the moment the doors opened we felt welcomed and at home. The program was designed for us and we felt we had a lot of options to make the experience what we wanted. We cannot talk highly enough about all the team at The Place, the yoga was exceptional, and all the healers and treatments were beyond our expectations.
As a couple we came away reunited, connected and confident in our path together. We would recommend this to couples looking for a dedicated time together to discover each other and to work on their own path as individuals within the relationship. We have recommended this retreat to friends already and we will be back!
This retreat based on a subtle mix in-between psychology, spirituality and yoga has been for me a great opportunity to grow.
Based in luxurious environment within Bali’s amazing vibes, the high quality of the therapists and teachers makes it a rare and exceptional experience.
B, Couple Retreat
This was one of the best things I have done for myself in a long time. I thought I needed a holiday because I felt so tired, so stuck and so un-motivated that I really needed a retreat at The Place.
Words don’t really to justice to how much you can in 8 days and most importantly how much you can change.
The combination of Kundalini yoga (which I had never done before) and psychotherapy is very powerful. Be prepared to experience a wash of different emotions as all your senses are tapped into. And, when you do feel them, stick with the process as you know its really working. More importantly, you know you are doing the work on yourself to be a better version of you.
What I loved about being here is that the therapists are working with you to achieve your goals. I was mind-blown by the healing massages, acupuncture and water massage which compliment the talking therapy and yoga beautifully.
What I also loved is that you are given the time to reflect on the process and because all the staff are so attentive it means that your whole focus can be on you.
It is a truly beautiful and completely unique experience, one that words cannot match. You need to feel it to believe how amazing it is. I came with a lot of baggage but I leave 100 times lighter and ready to go back to the real world outside of this wonderful safe cocoon, knowing that I take with me new tools and new insight into myself to achieve my next steps.
Thank you with all my heart.
The Place was a very special and beautiful experience! I attended a 8 days program that was varied, extremely interesting and very well balanced. It has been a truly magical and wonderful time, discovering my own self and finding who I really am.
I left grounded and so relieved to finally have the keys in hand to achieve happiness. I have also been inspired to practice Kundalini yoga twice a week and meditation daily back home in Paris.
Thank you to Jean-Claude and Manuela for this life changing experience. I hope to attend another retreat next year!”
All my love
Though not always enjoyable, it was definitely a life changing process. The combination of Kundalini Yoga and Therapy sessions was a fantastic pairing; Releasing the old emotions and building and accessing the new ones. JC, Manuela and Jeremy all worked tirelessly to make sure we were supported and Mr Johnson, the chef, worked equally hard to make sure we were never hungry! Bali is a special place, and I hope to return there very soon to continue my journey ( and to see Daisy and Mela, the dogs, who were always there to give love and support after a difficult day!).
NM, 90 Day Transformational Retreat.
We discovered some amazing realisations on the retreat about ourselves and as a couple that we still cherish today. We were both treated as equals despite Nick having had lots of therapy and Jo not yet dipping her toe in.
The warmth, love and attentive nature of the Kundalini and Tantra yoga teachers, Manuela and Angela was amazing. We felt comforted and they helped us connect to each other in a way we’d never experienced and had been too frightened to even attempt. At times they push you but it never feels uncomfortable because you know they have the right intention and purpose… and don’t worry if you’ve never done kundalini and tantra before; neither had we.
The therapists are the best in the business. Sessions can be intense but they will always hit the nail on the head which means that enormous growth can be achieved on a retreat. We also had the unique experience of equine therapy which made the process highly visual as the horse can represent and mimic your own internal emotions.
It is also amazing to have the support of your fellow group members on the retreat as you are all being guided on your exciting personal journeys.
When I first heard about “rebirthing” I didn’t know what we were going to face… when Manuela the Kundalini teacher explained to us the first day I never thought it was so intense and effective.
The first 3 days all my family structures and beliefs system went to the ground, every day after the practice I came out with a lot of confusion about my family structures, and the person I thought I was.
After the first few day feeling in small crisis, on the fourth day I felt a change when I woke up and when I finished the practice and the anguish was gone. The most beautiful thing was that I could identify the source of my pain so I was able to start rebuilding a new foundation, to really reborn.
This with the assistance of a teacher like Manuela, she was delicate, motherly and supportive, showing me the importance of this practice. I have learned that the crisis were an opportunity to grow.
Manuela every day asked me what I felt after the practice helping me to identify and shape the feelings.
And then I could talk about them in my sessions with JC, and be able to go deeper, it was amazing to see how everything came together.
At the end of the process, I felt that it was my biggest step, the beginning of a new me, where I started to build over this new foundation. I really recommend “Rebirthing” as al life changing experience!
