THE VENUe: Utopia Rote

To facilitate your experience, we've chosen an eco-conscious paradise to allow you to effortlessly harmonize with the rhythms of nature. Utopia Rote is a luxurious eco-conscious resort surrounded by nature and breathtaking views. Utopia operates fully off the grid in harmony with the environment and local community while always striving towards more sustainability and self-sufficiency.

Rote island has an identity of its own with endless exploration and discoveries to be done from ocean to land. Rote is an Indonesian Island with natural beauty, powdery white-sand beaches and incredible surf.

The island's remote location sets it apart from the average tourist destination. On this off the beaten track island, you can find simplicity and natural beauty everywhere including traditional villages and some of Indonesia's most untouched beaches. We know you'll fall in love with Rote Island's relaxed, endless summer feel.


The Program

Wake up in a tropical paradise to a daily yoga practice, meditations, coaching workshops, and holistic meals. The focus of our program is to provide the environment, guidance, and tools to empower you to thrive in your life, both on and off the mat. 

Christie will lead purposefully themed and sequenced morning yoga practices with pranayama and meditation. Erin will facilitate mindful living workshops to help you connect more deeply with yourself and offer you tools to take your yoga practice off the mat and into your life. There will plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of our surroundings alongside inspiring conversations, infinity pool lounging, and daily island adventures.
