Men’s Naked Yoga and Tantric Massage in the Bali Mountains (clothing Optional)
28 Febr – 7 March 2020
NUDE YOGA and TANTRIC MASSAGE Retreat
Welcome to the spiritual capital of Asia, Bali. Nestled in the rainforest 800 meters above sea level on a volcanic hillside in central Bali you will feel relaxed and invigorated the minute you set foot at the retreat. We will create a community of men seeking tranquility, pleasure and knowledge over the next seven days. You will purify yourself daily with organic vegetarian cuisine, forest and stream bathing, massage and sweating from your asana practice. This retreat welcomes all men regardless of your yoga or massage abilities. Under the guidance of Tommy and Franscis, you will be guided through a week of self-discovery about yourself and your sexuality. Take a break from your normal routine and re-discover yourself in the company of like minded men.
This retreat is especially tailored for men who are interested in learning how to work with their physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual energies to have a more fulfilling life. We will work with breath, sound and movement to open the body, heart and mind so the energy, or prana, can flow more easily throughout the body. We will accomplish this through a daily yoga practice, different massage techniques, meditations and great vegetarian food. You will learn how to surrender into the present moment and become fully embodied. The ultimate purpose of our journey together this week is to feel more free, happy and in harmony with your true essence. So, join Franscis and Tommy, two experienced yogis, at this fabulous retreat venue in the Balinese mountains; the perfect place to rediscover yourself. Plus, you will make new friends and leave more relaxed and confident.

I am a Yoga Alliance 500 hour registered teacher (RYT-500) and have been practicing yoga since 1997 and teaching since 2011. I have studied many different styles of Hatha yoga including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sivananda, Yin, Partner and Aerial. My classes are always a blend of the above styles and every class is different.
I knew early on in my yoga practice that i would someday teach. It was a calling not really a decision. I started practicing yoga purely for the physical aspects but over time I grew to love and understand the spiritual side of yoga. Teaching allows me to go deeper into my practice. I”ll never be done learning yoga. Doing yoga nude allows me to accept myself as I am in that moment without any barriers or trying to hide my imper-fections. I love seeing my students have the same experience and come to terms with their image of their body.
Reviews from retreat in Singapore 2019
Robert:I experienced the retreat in Singapore relaxed, and it was a very special weekend for me. The variety of nude yoga and massage brought me to myself. The openness, interest in each other and warmth of the other participants created a close bond with each other.
Handy: This is such an amazing retreat, where we meet cross culture guys from over the world. We blend and mingle brain storming and exchange new experiences with them.
KC: Thank you for organising this retreat. I had a wonderful time learning / appreciating the art of tantric massage together with a company of great men. This is my first experience of staying naked most of the times for several days. I felt free and safe in house. The meals are great and the company is even better.
Sheung: Being physical naked helped us to be naked in our feelings and communications. For me, it was such a release. Being free again to touch and communicate again like a child, friend and lover. I have always been a sensual person even as a child. Touch texture vibrations colours smells sounds – all these are very stimulating to me. And I have been fortunate not to grow up feeling ashame or dirty about my body and sex. And touching people without sexual intentions. Your retreat was very comforting in reminding me how much I celebrate the human body and the joys it brings.
Ricky: The retreat hosted by Tom and Francis made me reflect deeply on what I liked or disliked my body. I might be able to overcome the uneasiness of being “nude” physically in front of strangers during the retreat. But the hardest part was to “get my true self naked”. I felt vulnerable at the very beginning, but the experience turned out to be powerful for me. Tom and Francis had created an environment where I could let my emotions, sexual energy, erotic fantasies flow without feeling shameful. The highlight was the Tantra massage where I was being massaged by a stranger, even touching the most private part of my body. To me, my boundary, both physically and mentally, was stretched to the maximum. I learned to trust, and appreciate in the retreat, which was not easy. My past education and social upbringing taught me the other way direction.
