All About Us

All About Us

Bali Wellness Retreat was originally founded as Body and Mind Retreats.

It was conceptualized by the inspiration of our own personal growth and our desire to connect deeply with people interested in living a transformative experience.

Our combined years of experience within the hospitality and events coordinating field provide you with a professional service.

Why Bali?

Also known as ‘The Island of the Gods’ or ‘The Island of a thousand temples’, Bali is a perfect location to provide you with the proper ingredients, in creating a wellness retreat.

With the abundant spiritual practices by the Balinese and the natural landscapes that fill the island, Bali gives the support to focus on one’s own healing.

Add some body nurturing with the help of local healthy juices and food for that deeply felt experience.


Andrea started working in the leisure/corporate travel and events planning while living in Paris in the late 1980’s. She was blessed with the opportunity to travel all around the world while coordinating travel groups.

She move back to the USA in the late 1990’s, where she met a Buddhist Monk that inspired great changes in her life.

After living a shift towards consciousness, she decided to Let Go of what was considered her Comfort Zone, and decided to traveled around the world on a Sabbatical Journey to ‘walk the talk’ and winded up in Bali in 2003. There she explored the various alternative methods of healing, leading her to encounter a nutritionist, who guided her during a 1 year cleanse.

In living the result of this lifestyle transformation, she shifted her skills to align with her expeience. In that moment, she conceptualized Body and Mind Retreats which later expanded to Bali Wellness Retreat & Yoga Travel.

Today, her talents have expanded to Latin America with her first project there, and & with more to come……
