Don’t expect to have a lie-in at Escape Ritual because every morning at 8 am sharp, a personal trainer visits the villa to put any sleepy head through their paces to get the blood flowing, the heart pumping while oxygenating the brain and energising the entire body for a full day of activities.
Pranayama breathing or Breathwork as it is more commonly known is another mind-opening and spiritual activity provided by Escape Ritual. Two specialist breathwork practitioners facilitate this workshop which brought me to another level of consciousness through deep breathing techniques and visualisation exercises. Deeply profound and highly personal, each of us benefitted greatly from this workshop.
Other new-age activities provided by the retreat include Sound Healing with the use of Tibetan bronze bowls and Aura Cleansing. For more adventure-minded, there are excursions such as early morning sunrise trek to Mount Batur. Plus, white-water rafting, paragliding and cycling around the Ubud countryside can be arranged.
A Balinese Farm to Table Cooking Class provides an opportunity to visit an organic farm. Picking the ingredients before going to a traditional community village kitchen to learn authentic Balinese dishes which you can replicate at home.
It’s ideal for those who want to continue their new-found health regime back home. There’s also a silver jewellery making class are also other activities which are available to guests.
