Bali detox, blog from the bog Day 1

My friend testing out the board on delivery

Got the colema board delivered on Saturday on loan (I’ve aptly named it the sh*t machine). It’s basically a home enema kit and I’m told that I should relax and light some incense, put some nice music on and pop this tube where the sun don’t shine. We reckon most of our guests will opt for the colonic instead but I’m trying it anyway!

If you’re doing this detox with your partner around I hope they know you well. Mine’s away which I think was a good thing yesterday (v gassy!).

Is it my ego or does this Yoga Retreat suck?

Part of our work in developing Soul Sanctuaries is to seek out amazing off the beaten track havens where we can send guests or run one of our signature Soul Retreats in the near future. So we packed our bags and headed off to a possible sanctuary in the misty mountains in Bali.

Location, tropical wilderness (check)

Greeting on arrival, warm and friendly (check)

Accommodation, luxurious, nice energy and peaceful (check)

Cuisine, mediocre and a bit disorganized

Spa Treatments, automotron comes to mind? When did a soft Javanese massage become a shiatsu?

Yoga class (advance apologies to anyone who thinks my ego got the better of me here but this class was awful, hilarious and a bit dangerous for your health at the same time!)
