Soulshine Bali

Yogis, explorers and dreamers…

We invite you to melt into a week of bliss at Michael Franti’s oasis of yoga, soul, and rock n’ roll.

Soulshine Bali is the leading yoga retreat hotel in Ubud. This serene property is nestled between ancient rice terraces, temples and a lush jungle landscape, peacefully located ten minutes from Ubud center.

Imagine waking up to meet the rising sun nestled deep within the luscious landscape of Indonesia’s sacred island of Bali. Your morning will begin with a quiet, centering meditation canopied high amongst the tree tops overlooking the enchanted rice terrace before gradually migrating into a breath-centered yoga practice designed to awaken your connection with body, heart, mind and spirit. Each morning practice will be followed by a nutritious and delicious breakfast curated by local chefs pouring conscious intention into each meal they prepare for you.

Throughout the week, the daytime hours provide ample time to use at your discretion. On some days you may wish to abide on property in the sweet container of our retreat site allowing for more relaxation, restoration, contemplation, journaling or receiving healing treatments from the incredible team at Soulshine Bali. Other days you may choose to explore Ubud, the cultural, spiritual and creative hub of Bali only 3 miles away or perhaps take a short 30 minute ride to visit the breathtaking black sand beaches and world renowned surfing paradise of Karamas. Our journey will also provide opportunities for explorative excursions as well as special service project to give back to the sacred land and it’s local residents.

Each evening we will include another delicious, locally crafted meal followed by a relaxing evening yin or restorative practice and satsang community circle where we will dive more deeply into the wisdom teachings of yoga dharma and the more subtle aspects of the transformational journey home to Self. The island of Bali is truly a place like no other, where the yoga tradition permeates every aspect of the island’s culture and the natural beauty is nothing short of exquisite.

Join us for this mystical journey deep into the heart of yourself and into the heart beat of the Earth where you will uncover the beauty and magic of the world around you and the world within you.

Deedra Ryder


Inspired most by the pulse of the ocean and traveling the globe, Deedra has carefully curated a life full of yoga and surfing. This simple life keeps her on her quest to connect to all things. She was blessed enough over many years to travel and get lost on this beautiful earth, which lead her to countless adventures across America, Europe, central America, The Caribbean, Australia, and Hawaii with plenty more in the works.

Grateful to find yoga in 2001 whilst living in Hawaii her practice began then. She explored everywhere picking up puzzle pieces to discover the puzzle is a lifestyle of wellness and spirituality. Deedra was offered a yoga teacher training in Los Angeles in 2011 and has been guiding yogis to find connection ever since. She mentors new teachers, she’s also a holistic skin care practitioner, meditation teacher and nutritional advisor. Her teaching style is dynamic and free spirited, but roots one down by channeling inward through dharma. Her intention is to guide others with global influence, inspiration, awareness and passion. She will continue serving and giving back to community to allow space for love to grow and connection to flow.

And So it is.
