Offensive communication and discrimination is simply not allowed, period. This may seem obvious; but to be sure, to be sure, any intolerant behavior based on gender, nationality, social belonging, physical features, anything deemed inappropriate really, is NOT accepted. We reserve the right to ask any guest showing such behavior to leave the retreat, without a refund
Yoga is a practice, and even the most experienced yogis feel like a beginner some days. It’s about evolving day by day. You’ll be given the opportunity to share about your practice when you register so that our adaptable guides will know exactly how to craft each class for the needs and energy levels of all the guests.
Incredible, welcome; whatever your level, our expert team will ensure you are expanding at a level that’s comfortable for you, or maybe at times just beyond your comfort zone 😉 We inclusively and intuitively facilitate all levels at our gatherings which our guests have found to be massively beneficial for all concerned.
At Solana, we supply top-grade mats, but you might want to bring your own, especially if you anticipate staying longer in Bali for your own practice.

Indonesia has a free 30-day tourist visa available for most countries, be sure to check yours. If you would like to stay more than 30 days, then you have the option to pay $35 for a visa-on-arrival (VOA) at the airport with the option to extend for another 30 days; so, up to 60 days in total. Please ask if you have more questions.
If your passport is due to expire within 6 months, we advise you to renew. You should also be able to demonstrate an outbound flight from Indonesia and have at least two blank pages in your passport.

Bali has a tropical climate and is warm and humid throughout the year. Any time is good for a visit. From October to March, it tends to rain more always can rain, but if you are at a retreat at Solana, you will have a good time regardless
Bali, like the rest of Indonesia, uses the Indonesian rupiah. The exchange rate can vary, but on average, it’s about 15,000 rupias for one dollar. While most foreign ATMs and credit cards are accepted here, it’s always a good idea to carry some cash with you. Traveler’s checks are less commonly used, but they can be exchanged at major banks or money changers.
Yes, there are ATM machines all over Ubud and in most towns in Bali. Be aware of charges and contact your bank at home before you leave to tell them you will be in Bali.
Yes, almost every hotel and restaurant in Bali has internet access. At Solana, we would highly, highly recommend that you take this golden opportunity to unplug and unwind @oldschool and not forget paper books and your journal.
Bahasa Indonesia is generally spoken throughout Indonesia and the Balinese speak Balinese among themselves. However, English is widely spoken everywhere and you can easily get by.
Ubud is a spiritual mecca, and generally very safe. Ask if you’re not sure, and trust your instincts. Care for yourself as you would anywhere else.
When entering temples you must be respectful and have your shoulders covered and wear a sarong (for men and women) – usually, sarongs are provided for you when you visit a temple. The Balinese welcome you to their ceremonies, but you must dress appropriately.
We suggest you exercise the same caution you would anywhere.
We suggest you wear a hat, ensure sun cream is used and topped up regularly, sunglasses of course, and please use natural insect repellents when necessary. We supply a chemical-free version in our shop, advised mainly just at sunset; but more importantly, we have liberally planted mosquito-repelling plants to minimize this largely unavoidable aspect of life in the tropics.
Yes, there are pharmacies in Bali that have the most common drugs, such as antibiotics, anti-diarrhea, cold and flu remedies. If you are bringing medicine to Bali make sure you have a prescription from your doctor on the label.
Almost every hotel in Bali has a doctor who will come to the hotel to see you. There are also clinics, hospitals, and doctor’s offices around Bali. At Solana, we have our own naturopath and a doctor who can help. In an emergency, we can bring you to the right hospital.
Bali is generally very safe but like any other place, we invite you to exercise caution and common sense.
Bali is hot so think light and layers. For your stay at Solana, all you really need is flip flops and shorts, yoga clothes, a sarong, and bathing suits.
At Solana, we are raving fans of barefoot living. We encourage you to let go, be yourself, to be comfortable and free for the duration of the retreat. Yoga clothes and a few light summer outfits will see you right.
