Wondering which yoga reatreat to join? In Bali? In Gili? Which yoga instructor? Easy! Ask Julie! Sharni offers several lovely yoga retreats in different parts of the world.

Yes the vulcano might erupt. Yes the airport might be closed. Yes there might be ashes. I'm in Bali now. I'll communicate on what is happening at this very moment. BUT I can assure you, we know exactly what to do and we've got you.  What happened to me when the vulcano erupted and my flight was cancelled? I checked into South-Lombok's Novotel for a night, fabulous place by the way. Garuda refunded my ticket, and I flew out the next day with Lion Air.
