Bali Sadhana FAQs

WHEN WILL THE TRAINING BEGIN AND END?

The training will begin with dinner on April 4 and end with breakfast brunch on April 14.

WHAT IS THE DEPOSIT, and IS IT REFUNDABLE?

The deposit is $1008, and it is non-refundable and non-transferable. Read our cancellation policy.

Because of the unique travel uncertainties, if you have to cancel due to covid-19 (including local or international travel restrictions, testing challenges, or symptoms, deposits will be refunded).

I SAW JANET IS ALSO OFFERING A RETREAT IN BALI. WHICH ONE IS A BETTER FIT FOR ME?

If you are are looking for a teacher training and a deep immersion in practice, the training will be a great fit. The immersion is intensive, with daily morning practice, followed by training material until dinner time (with generous breaks for breakfast and lunch). The training will include dharma/philosophy sessions, anatomy + ayurveda, asana lab + assisting practice, and more). The immersive nature of the training tends to cultivate pretty deep bonds, as you are together for so many hours. The immersion includes group excursions that everyone does together, plus all the training time.

If you are seeking an opportunity to unwind, chill and explore Bali, then the Bali Bliss retreat at Soulshine may be more your speed. There will be 1-2 practices per day and loads of free time, for exploring, optional excursions, and just relaxing.

WHICH AIRPORT SHOULD I FLY INTO?

Bali’s airport is in Denpasar. It is about 1.5 hours from Bagus Jati. The airport is expected to re-open to international travel in late 2020 or early 2021.

WHICH AIRLINE SHOULD I FLY?

This will depend on your city of departure. We highly highly recommend booking directly with the airlines, and choosing an airline that is offering refunds or flexible changes.

HOW LONG IS THE FLIGHT AND WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE AND DEPART?

The length of the flight will depend on your departure city, of course. From the US, it takes about one day of travel. Most flights go through either Taipei or Singapore. Plan your flights so you arrive no later than 3 pm on Sunday, April 4. You can depart on April 14—flights that depart after 3 pm are ideal. We highly recommend booking flights directly through the airlines. China Airlines and Singapore Airlines are among our most recommended options.

HOW DO I GET FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE TRAINING SPACE and FROM THE TRAINING TO THE AIRPORT?

Bagus Jati coordinates transportation to and from the airport, as well as to and from Ubud. Airport shuttles are 450,000 Rupiah (about $30 USD), and can be shared by up to 3 people. The transfer fees are not included, because many students choose to travel on their own before or after the training.

DO I NEED A VISA?

Typically, you can get a Visa on Arrival (VOA) at the airport in Denpasar, as long as you plan to stay fewer than 30 days. Be sure your passport is current and does not expire within six months of your planned departure. This may be different in 2021, depending upon entry requirements due to efforts to test and track coronavirus. We will provide guidance on the process if it an advance visa is required.

HOW DO I EXCHANGE MY MONEY?

Currency exchange services are very easy to find in Bali. In addition, ATMs are widespread, and most credit and debit cards work in Bali. Check with your bank because many cards offer currency exchange withdrawals without a fee.

IS THERE LAUNDRY ONSITE?

They do not have machines, but they can send laundry out and it will come back clean in 1-2 days for a modest fee.

JUST TO BE SURE, WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE TRAINING FEES?

Lodging and all meals during the training starting with dinner on April 4 and ending with brunch on April 14. Access to the pool and hottub. Fruit and bottled water daily, plus access to refills. Excursions.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED?

Airfare to and from your home to Bali. Tips for the retreat center staff (around $10USD/day, to be shared with the many individuals who make their living supporting our trip; please bring CASH). Airport transfers in Bali. Incidentals (snacks, laundry service), and spa treatment (the spa is incredible).
