Join Jonah Kest for a 6 night, 7 day yoga and adventure retreat in the spiritual epicenter of Ubud, Bali! This retreat will grant you the opportunity to discover the vast unknown as you capture magic all along the way. We will explore daily yoga experiences through the teachings of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin and Acro Yoga. You will adventure off the beaten path to waterfalls, temples and rice terraces. You’ll enjoy incredible plant based meals to nourish your body, mind and creative force.
Putting nature at the heart of the experience will help reveal who we are to ourselves. You will have a chance to explore Jonah’s curated set of destinations in the heart of Bali that most people never get to see! Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime.
This retreat will also give you an opportunity to explore the world of adventure photography. Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’ll have the opportunity to capture once in a lifetime shots! You don’t need a fancy camera (iPhone is fine), however if you have one or want to get one, it is highly recommended. There will be 1:1 editing sessions offered at the resort. Jonah will also be teaming up with an incredible local Bali Photographer (@IW_WM) who will help lead workshops and take photos, so you can return home with beautiful art from Bali!
All Jonah asks is that you come with an open mind & heart, as we’ll have many opportunities to stretch beyond our old limits mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually.

Jonah Kest was born into a yoga legacy. With his father, vinyasa yoga pioneer Jonny Kest, and his mother, Milla Kest, as one of the first yoga business owners and yoga teacher training programs in the Midwest – he was destined to follow the path.
While his early interests included basketball, boxing and running track, it became very clear that strength without flexibility would be a hard path. His breath became the very partner that he sought in every activity, every relationship, every moment.
Enter Ashtanga Yoga.
At 17, Jonah trained under his father to become a teacher. His passion was evident. His equanimity strengthened with a daily meditation sit and it was a natural evolution to teach. The mind-body connection influenced his life — sharing the practice changed it.
Between heaven and earth, 3.5 km from the centre of Ubud, in the middle of rice paddies, you’ll discover Blue Karma Resort Ubud, a Boutique Hotel de Charm, where everything waits for you to relax and to let go…
In the middle of this verdant haven of peace, built with respect of the environment, surrounded by fruit trees and deliciously perfumed plants, is a a 25m infinity pool, "Karma Yoga" pavillion, and qazebos with thatched roofs to rest and relax.
Attention is put on all areas of health and wellness including quality local, farm to table food!
