Kate Reardon
Bachelor of Health Science — Naturopathy • Bachelor of Health Science — Nutritional Medicine 
• Intuitive Healer • Yoga Teacher 
Hi I’m Kate. I teach, guide, empower and support people on their healing journeys. I started NIH because I wanted to create a sacred healing space for people to come, relax, unwind, cleanse and realise the potential of who they truly are without all the baggage and toxicity they carry on every level mind, body, spirit.
I love meeting our retreat guests from all over the world who have a desire to dive deep into their own individual potentiality and healing. Seeing people take risks, be brave, release what no longer serves and realise how extraordinary they are excites me like no other.
On retreat you will find me leading workshops, connecting with guests, individual healing sessions or naturopathy/nutrition sessions, teaching yoga, leading meditations and having fun with our awesome team. Off retreat I am filming content, keynote speaking, writing, connecting with partners and exploring how we can organically guide NIH to support people in dynamic ways. I am the author of “The Essential Cleanse” which is a 21 day powerful cleanse, a love letter to all seeking healing from the inside out.  You can learn more about that here
What gets me up in the mornings? The incredible inner knowing deep within me that I was given this life for a purpose and I intend to continue to grow, expand and celebrate in all ways I can! On my days off you’ll find me being a Mama bear to 2 littlies, immersed in nature, soaking up a book and dancing!

Pat Reardon
Bachelor of International Business
Hi I’m Pat. I support and inspire others to become the best possible version of themselves, reaching for their full potential. At NIH I have the profound experience of witnessing amazing clients go deep into the inner realm of their psyches and emerge more connected, clear, and with so much more to offer the world and those around them. Our retreats are a trigger point for positive change, and while the physical detox is essential and will happen – the jewels for me is in the emotional baggage left behind and the mental clarity at the end of retreats.
I love seeing the connection and dynamics of clients coming together and supporting one another through the experience: the conversations; laughter; humour; and the tears… My work days are fluid and flexible ~ but typically a few of hours connecting with clients on email and health exploration calls; and then dancing between operations, financials and marketing; before heading into the retreat centre to connect with the retreat centre team and our clients. Love the variety!
Leading my supportive, fun and inspirational team goes well beyond ‘rewarding’… Every one of us are constantly pushing one another to be our best – and there is always a blend of craziness – with an amazing depth of qualifications, knowledge, and experience.
The bells of a ceremonial morning blessing in a nearby temple literally get me up in the morning. But also an internal quest to leave an amazing legacy, while having a bloody good time doing it! On my days off you’ll find me in the ocean.

Jane Holland
Bachelor of Health Science — Nutrition
Jane’s true passion is holding the space for people to listen to their own intuition, to speak their own truth, to find their own way. She loves watching as people sink into this space and allow themselves to expand and open their hearts to themselves, to trust what they know is really going on inside. It comes in different ways – through yoga, on retreat, or in their relationship to food and eating.

Natural Instinct Healing have an amazing team of local employees, who each bring their special piece of Indonesian culture into the retreat centre. Below is a number of local staff who make up our committed team — including our guest relations manager, yoga instructor, media manager, masseuses, drivers, room staff, and cooks!

Our impact

We believe that everyone deserves health and happiness, and that goes beyond the amazing clients we work with on a daily basis. Our far reaching business impact is delivered through our lifetime partnership with the team at B1G1: Business for Good.

At all the touch points of connection to our business (e.g. a client joins us on retreat in Bali, a client signs up to our mailing list, someone connects with us on LinkedIn) we make an impact to others less fortunate than ourselves. Some of our recent impacts and global gifting can be seen right here below!

Our Global Giving Map

Our Recent Impacts!

We also believe that business can inspire solutions to the social, environmental, and health issues that surround us. This means that what we use and how we use it must cause the least harm to the environment and our local village, while delivering the best possible offering to our clients. As such we do all we can to be a leading Eco Retreat Centre in Ubud, by making conscious decisions on the products and systems we use, and the local businesses with whom we partner.

Testament to our commitment to the environment, and ultimately the health of our clients and the planet, includes: buying Organic produce wherever possible, using natural organic beauty and cleaning products wherever possible, composting all our food waste into our organic garden, and recycling all other waste with a local eco-recycling business. Above all else we aim to partner only with other local businesses who share a common vision for a sustainable future — a number of which can be found below. We ask you to do the same whilst on retreat with us, and back at home in your local communities.
