The Stretch

The Stretch 2018-02-06T05:16:19+00:00






This 5-day Mindset coaching retreat in Bali is designed to help you radically expand your horizons, break through your limits, and kickstart a life of health, happiness, and success. We’ll work one-on-one using expert techniques that address your mental, physical, and spiritual state. Experience a total transformation in a tropical paradise.


The Stretch offers a private, five-day, tailor-made Coaching retreat that combines theoretical guidance with physical activity. Radically expand your horizons and create a focused plan for your future. Whether reinventing your personal life or professional career, expect to dive deep into your interests, your patterns of behaviour, your sources of frustration, and your purpose in the world. You’ll be expertly guided to use the insights you gain as pointers towards a new path.

Touchdown on the stunning island of Bali, an ideal setting for your journey of personal growth. Start each day with a warm up for your body and mind, with a series of physical activities like Yoga, surfing, meditation, or a workout on the beach. After a healthy breakfast, begin your Coaching sessions. We’ll examine your big life questions through conversations, images, mapping, and other proven techniques. By lunchtime, you’ll be at the beach walking to digest and reflect on the new insights you’ve gained in the morning’s session, or enjoying a relaxing massage or spa treatment. Over five days you’ll gradually gain clarity and focus, creating a concrete plan of action for lasting change.

The Stretch uses a coaching framework that cuts through limiting beliefs and helps temper your inner critic, usually resistant to any major change. We’ll let go of negative habits that are no longer serving you and adopt healthy new ones that will lead you on a path to success. Whatever aspect of life you choose to focus on (e.g. relationships, health, money, work), we’ll put it into a greater context, painting the bigger picture of your life.

You’ll be encouraged to stretch beyond your ‘comfort zone’, rediscover your passions, and articulate your needs in the pursuit of a singular distilled goal (the ‘what’). We’ll then work on the ‘how’ unleashing practical techniques to overcome obstacles and help you create the life you seek. Using methods that create space for insight and growth, you’ll rekindle your confidence directly at the source and create a clear vision for the future.

The Stretch is the beginning of your journey, not the end, so after five days, though your time in Bali will be over, you’ll just be getting started on the path to your new life. You’ll head home equipped with the tools you need to continue to grow, explore, and deal with any challenges that come up. You’ll even learn how to share your experience with others, enlisting them to help keep you accountable and committed when you return to your daily life.


The Stretch is ideal for anyone looking to break through their limits and make a significant change in their life. Executives, entrepreneurs, business owners – anyone feeling stuck, stressed and looking to reach their maximum potential.

Bali surf retreat - Best surf retreat bali


Surfing isn’t just a physical act, it’s an act of meditation. It’s about letting go, embracing the swell, and riding the wave. It’s a lesson that applies as much on land as it does in the ocean. It’s a life lesson in every session. Bali offers some of the world’s greatest waves, and whether you’re a seasoned pro or just getting up on the board for the first time, we’ll have a great time in the water. You’ll head out with a certified surf instructor who will teach you the basics of safety and technique on land before you catch your first wave in the warm waters of Canggu.

Yoga retreat bali - Bali yoga retreat


Our approach to yoga is that there is no “one size fits all”. We all have different bodies, health issues, lifestyles and stressors. We live in different environments, have different jobs and our life circumstances are not the same.

Someone who is stressed and anxious might need a more calming yoga practice. On the other hand, a person that feels sluggish and has weight issues would benefit from a more energising and dynamic yoga. Working holistically means that I look at the person as a whole in order to offer an individualised yoga practice tailored to my clients’ specific needs.

In order to get clear about your specific needs and the results you want to achieve with your life, we will first look at your body type (or “dosha” in Ayurveda), the state of mind and health, your current life situation and personal issues you might struggle with.

We will then create a customised yoga practice for you, which always includes a breathing technique and meditation that complements the yoga poses. We will also consult you regarding possible lifestyle changes you might want to make in order to bring even more balance to your life. These include nutritional recommendations, Ayurvedic practices, meditation and breathing techniques, morning and nighttime routines, productivity tips and more.

detox retreat bali food bali


Charming cafes dot the quiet streets of Canggu, offering a range of delicious foods. Enjoy healthy breakfast bowls bursting with fresh fruit, colourful salads full of local produce, a plentiful coffee culture, exotic elixirs, richly spiced meat, seafood, and veggie dishes, and everything in between. Food plays a central role in the retreat – a healthy body feeds a healthy mind. What we eat will be fresh and plentiful. Vegan and vegetarian options are easy to come by and will reinvigorate the foodie inside all of us.


Located on Bali’s calm western coast, Canggu is a cultural hub for international travellers that come together for their shared passions: nature, surf, yoga, and delicious food. Canggu offers a serene counterpart to the more hectic and bustling parts of Bali, and you’ll feel an instant tranquility as the tropical air settles around you. The area spans three different beaches, each offering their own unique energy and equally spectacular sunsets. Aside from the perfect swell and relaxed smiles, Canggu is arguably most famous for its booming variety of local and international cuisines.

  • Our retreats are private and individual. We mainly focus on coaching and physical activities. We do our best to facilitate your stay and make it as convenient as possible.
  • The retreat doesn’t include accommodation, but we can arrange it and suggest a few options from our hotel and villa partners in Canggu.
  • The meals are not included in order to leave you the choice amongst so many healthy cafes and restaurants around Canggu. You will want to try them all 🙂
  • The retreat is customizable. If you would like to include spa treatments in one of your free afternoons (and after your coaching homework) we can help you with that.

REVIEW ★★★★★

Dris has a light touch and an easygoing manner but is ruthlessly focused on helping you discover and inhabit the life you want. His coaching offered discovery, structured techniques and lots of inspiration. I reconnected with pieces of myself, pieces that were hidden caused disempowering beliefs. The discovery and awareness really helped me to define empowering beliefs and to set and align goals with my core values.

Dris gave me the courage to break my own old patterns. Post-coaching, I feel braver and more confident in my ability to follow through on my intentions. These discoveries and the awareness of them has already brought value to my life and how I choose to move forward.
