Best Yoga Studios in Bali

It is possible to create a suitable atmosphere for yoga at home, but it is impossible to really practice it in the city - there is too much stress. Fortunately, there are places where complete harmony reigns. One of them is the island of Bali.


First stop: Ubud

Yoga Barn re-saved

It's nice to be a yogi in Ubud. There are many practice rooms, Ayurvedic and spa centers, retreats , vegetarian cafes , including those specialized for raw foodists . Here many find friends and even meet their soul mates, because Bali is a magical island, do not forget about it.

One of the largest yoga centers in Ubud is Yoga Barn .

Practices: Classes of classical hatha yoga, ashtanga, vinyasa flow, iyengara, pranayama, etc. are open daily from 7 am to 9 pm for everyone. Meditations, retreats, as well as various events are held. There is a healing center and a vegetarian cafe.

Yoga Barn

    Where to live: on the territory there is a house with 9 double rooms and one quadruple room. But you can settle in any convenient place. The main thing is that it should be within walking distance from the yoga center. This will allow not only to arrive on time (the entrance to the classroom closes 15 minutes after the start of the lesson), but also to observe the daily routine.

Cost: One hour-and-a-half class (unless stated otherwise) at Yoga Barn costs IDR 130,000. Subscriptions and comprehensive programs are available.

Fivelements Bali

Fivelements Bali is perhaps the most beautiful and expensive complex in Bali. It is located on the banks of the Ayung River, sacred to the island, not far from Ubud. On the territory there are two pavilions for yoga, martial arts and other spiritual and physical practices, a large spa area and even its own laboratory where traditional Balinese herbal infusions and organic cosmetics are produced. The restaurant serves organic cuisine, including seafood.

Second point: Canggu

Canggu is located on the ocean - the perfect place for those who want to combine yoga practice with surfing and nightlife. This place is a kind of mix of an authentic village and a trendy resort.

Desa Seni eco-village

There is also a real eco-village in Canggu - Desa Seni eco-village . Her regular guests are people from different countries, many of whom have been living in Bali for a long time and are not going to leave. The houses in the village are special - they are restored old buildings. Life flows calmly and measuredly.

Shankari's Bali Retreat

      Third point: Gilimanuk

In the Western part of the island, not far from the famous Balean Beach, there is another famous yoga center Shankari's Bali Retreat - a quiet and peaceful corner away from the bustle of the city (about an hour's drive to the airport). Point of attraction for surfers and… wild monkeys. The retreat has its own jewelry workshop, which sells sacred and unique jewelry made of silver and stones. True, they are by no means cheap.

Shankari's Bali Retreat
