A Love Letter from Bali

My Dearest,

If you find yourself at a crossroads, yearning for deeper connections as a visionary who dreams of a love-filled world, a curious seeker on a spiritual journey, and a lover ready to receive more love, then this invitation is for you. Join your Guides, Phoebe Leona and Caryn Challman, for a heartwarming retreat filled with love-infused somatic practices, Ayurvedic rituals and movement ceremonies in the enchanting embrace of Bali to discover the love you have been waiting for.


As you step into this sacred adventure, picture this: Your hands gently pressed together at your heart, a deep bow, and a deeper breath—a love letter to yourself. In this sacred pause, you surrender and remember to cherish your divine nature. You've arrived in the loving embrace of Mama Bali, who whispers that you already carry all the love you need within to magnetize the love you are calling in.

Each morning, you awaken to nature's symphony and indulge in tropical fruits, fragrant incense, and offerings to the gods carried by the breeze. Your body relaxes as you gracefully move through open spaces, connecting with fellow adventurers and sharing stories that touch your hearts. The chaos of the past fades as you step into a new world—a new beginning that let's you know you are ready for more love.

You have arrived, and there is much more to this love story...

What Bali Has to Offer You

Bali is a place of sensory wonder. Sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and sensations all connect us with ourselves and rejuvenate our being. It is through the senses that we experience our surroundings and ultimately experience love. Through ancient Ayurvedic practices that are designed to enhance sensory experience. Purification of, and meditation with, the sensory organs awaken a deeper and more connected experience to dance with your authentic self.

Immerse yourself in a place that celebrates community. Bali proudly honors multiple faiths, including Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity. A visit to the rice fields will reveal the importance of unity and co-creation.

Experience the powerful energy of Bali, sweeping away the old stories to leave you with a calm heart and a clear mind. Bali provides the perfect backdrop to heal old wounds, find balance, and reintegrate the masculine and feminine energies within you, reminding you that everything is here for you and it is all interconnected with love by the divine.

Meet Your Guide, Phoebe Leona

Hello! Bali has always been a special place in my heart since the first time I led a retreat there in 2017. The love that you feel when from The Islands of the Gods is quite powerful and special. I am excited to return for a third time to guide you and others to dance, play, and spread your arms wide open to receive all the love that Mama Bali has to give you. My hope is you will return home with a new found sense of love and expansion that is the ripple effect that changes us to live in a vibration of love and peace for more authentic connections.

I hold spaces and teach that through practice, patience, curiosity, courage, and compassion, you can open a world of greater possibilities and deepen the connection to one’s core being. With over 20 years of teaching experience in yoga, somatic movement (Mvt109™), spirituality, and personal transformation, I am so honored for the opportunity to witness your experience as you discover your own radiance and take flight!

I can not wait to share the immense amount of love that is waiting there for you in Bali!



Meet Your Guide, Caryn Challman

Hello, I’m Caryn. And from a very deep place, I want to share that we all have the capacity to heal ourselves. But with our busy and chaotic lives, and the unending health trends that are available everywhere, it can be difficult to know what each of us individually needs to restore balance.

I know this personally–because I came to a point where I had extreme digestive distress and countless food allergies–I tried all the trends, and all the online advice, but nothing worked. This struggle eventually led me to visit an Ayurvedic doctor visiting from India. After a lengthy intake, he gave me simple advice and … what seemed at the time to be strange advice. But I did everything he recommended. And slowly, I started to get better and I needed to understand why.

I went on to graduate from Kripalu in 2019 as an Ayurveda Health Counselor and then completed advanced practitioner coursework with Dr. Anusha Sehgal of Boston Ayurveda Inc in 2021. I am now an Advanced Ayurvedic Practitioner and the founder of Sattvic Fern, a small Ayurvedic clinic and herbal apothecary based in Beacon NY. I work with clients to educate, guide, and empower them to restore balance and health through the application of the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda.

My background is in the fine arts - and I enjoyed a lengthy career as a designer, animator and videographer, having worked for technology companies and startups. Over the past 30 years, I’ve also absorbed myself in personal studies of Eastern traditions–including yoga, meditation and pranayama. In this pursuit, I have attended many retreats and pilgrimages to India–the first time was in 1997, when I lived in the Himalayas studying meditation for 6 months. Most recently, I spent a month receiving and studying Panchakarma (a type of Ayurvedic cleanse) in Coimbatore, South India.


The nOMad Collective

““So happy I was able to relax and unwind in Belize with the world’s greatest yoga teacher! This beautiful retreat, located in Thatch Caye, was a perfect balance between relaxation and activity. Phoebe created a spacious itenery with the right balance between optional activities (like snorkeling) and yoga classes. The staff on this small, private island (with beautiful and simple accommodations) was able to accommodate my dietary allergies and a variety of guest’s preferences. I would highly recommend it for someone looking for fantastic yoga classes, a little extra non-yoga activities, and plenty of time reflect.””

“I am so grateful to be a nOMad! Phoebe has been one of those teachers who's lessons stick with you long after the yoga class is over.I joined her on her first nOMad retreat to Costa Rica. This experience was so amazing. We had classes in the morning and at sunset, (occasionally on the beach watching the sun fall behind the ocean as we melted into our final savasana!). During our free time, we all stayed together and explored the area, taking horseback tours through the jungle, zip lines, national forests, and basically just enjoying the sunshine, fresh fruit (the mangos!!), atmosphere and relaxation. ”

“Words only partially cast light on the spiritual experience I embraced while in Bali with Phoebe and nOMad. Traveling across the world alone was a first for me, which presents a little anxiety, however, knowing that I would meet up with other nOMads (most of who I had not met) set me right at ease. From the first day through the last day, Embrace Ritual in Bali was an absolute heart-opening experience for me: correcting misalignment in my body from old scars - some of which I never knew I had, understanding the importance of setting intentions and letting go of expectations, learning the value of giving others space - to include myself, really truly listening to another person, understanding pain is temporary and the ability to forge a new storyline through the pain is possible, through sharing culture, prayer, and love a deeper human connection is possible. Along with these beautiful lessons, I learned laughter and relaxation are important rituals that keep me grounded in the healthy, loving, caring and capable woman that I want to project. One more gain was the unexpected gift of growing a deeper love and appreciation for my husband because of the unwavering support from him and the nonjudgmental support with nOMad. And, I must tell you all that I am still growing - almost 3 months later from this remarkable journey with nOMad Embrace Ritual in Bali. Thank you Phoebe, and thank you to the nOMad support.”
