OTHER Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I need a visa to visit Bali?
Yes, you are required to have a visa to enter Indonesia, obtained either beforehand or on arrival. U.S. passport holders will need to show a passport valid for six months after the arrival date in Bali, a return ticket and $25USD (in exact change) for a 30 day visa. Visa regulations have been in flux in Bali for almost a decade so it is recommended that you check with your consulate for the most up to date information.
What airport do I fly into?
Make all travel arrangements into Denpasar (DPS). Please be aware that you will need to depart the US one to two days before the start of the retreat, depending on the flight schedule you chose.
How do I get from Denpasar airport to the retreat?
Transfers are included and a shuttle will pick you up.
Note: If you arrive in Bali before or after the the retreat dates begins and ends you’ll be responsible for your transportation.

Bali utilizes the standard British plug (two flat blades and one flat grounding blade) and the European plug (two round pins) and is at 230V. Adapters will be necessary if you are taking any electrical items.
Do I need any Vaccines?
Generally speaking, traveling to foreign countries exposes you to new germs and diseases. All inoculations or malaria tablet inquiries need to be directed to your physician for an accurate assessment of your individual need or preference.
Is there internet access on property?
While we hope you’ll try and unplug… yes, there is wifi at our accommodations.
What will the weather be like?

My given name is Blake Jung, but I go by my spirit name, TRUE. This name was given to me while training to become a yoga instructor at the YogaSchool Institute in the amazing country of Guatemala. I have been practicing yoga, meditation, and mindful living around the world for over eight years. Now I am excited to bring my training and passion to those I teach.
I graduated college in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in speech communication from University of Wisconsin. After graduation, I moved to Los Angeles and found a 9 to 5 job in sales and marketing. I soon found I was unfulfilled, and after three years in the corporate world, I set out to find my true calling. The only way I was able to find myself was by first losing myself. I spent the next four years traveling the world, exploring various places and studying diverse forms of yoga. Along the way, I discovered another passion in volunteering with different non-profit organizations around the world. Through practicing yoga and lending my time volunteering, I started to grow and live my truth.
After years of living the nomadic lifestyle, I decided to make the move to New York City to put my skills and passion to use. After two years in NYC, I moved to Los Angeles to continue to teach, mentor, and promote my book. I was just recognized as one of LA’s new and hottest trainers by sporteluxe.com.
With a “why not?” spirit at a young age Juli set out early to college when all her friends were enjoying their HS experiences. Her first job out of college allowed for her to travel and see the entire country working as a fitness/wellness educator for ACE and AFAA. Now twenty some years later, after a career on the TV airwaves, in the media, travel industry, yoga and wellness, Juli has earned the term “Veteran Yogini Entrepreneur”. She is the co-founder GOYO Adventures, YOGAmentors.com, Meta Yoga Studios, several small businesses, as well as founder/publisher of YOGA + Life Magazines. As a 6+figure yoga business woman, she serves as an Executive Coach to C-level executives and teaches and speaks all over the world. A teacher of over 2 decades, wife, mom, and mountain girl, Juli promises to bring you the very best of what she is living and learning each day (yoga, adventure, family, magazines, media, business, successes/failures++). You will also get a little bit of her humor (okay a lot) and of course, a lot of love. Juli was named to top 50 inspiring Yogis on Twitter among other numerous awards. Read more about Juli here.
