Do you love practicing yoga? Then Bali is a dream come true. The small island paradise is packed with endless yoga retreats inviting visitors to meditate, find their zen, and reconnect with their inner selves under breathtaking palm trees among gorgeous landscapes. With spectacular views of the Cerulean Sea, lush jungles, and expansive rice fields, traveling one of these yoga retreats in Bali is the picture way to soothe your mind, body, and spirit.
While you will discover an abundance of yoga retreats all over the “Island of the Gods,” the Ubud Center has the most to offer. You will find that yoga is more than just a form of exercise — it is a way of life. In this small town, you may want to check out Naya Ubud. Here, you will practice yoga on a daily basis, next to bamboo groves overlooking the river. You may unwind near the central pool where everyone goes to relax with delicious food and fresh juice.
You may also look into Soulshine Bali, whose grounds host a river, tropical gardens, several ornate ponds, a swimming pool, and row on row of fresh fruit trees. Another popular retreat is Blooming Lotus, who claims they are located in “a slice of heaven.” Situated above a sacred holy river, peaceful tropical jungle, and adjacent a Balinese temple, Blooming Lotus will help you immerse yourself into the magic of yoga and self-discovery. In the perfect setting, you will enjoy two vinyasa classes per day, daily meditation, a lifestyle workshop, and delicious meals.
Should you want to explore another area of the island, Ubud isn’t the only place for yogis. Do you dream of watching the sunset over the ocean and falling asleep to the sound of the waves? Maybe you will venture down to Uluwatu or Canggu to attend their Surf & Yoga retreats. At Uluwatu Surf & Yoga, not only will you dive deep into your practice, but you will see extraordinary waves and breathtaking ocean and cliff views from your private villa. You may immerse yourself into Balinese culture while you attend the Kecak dance during sunset at the Uluwatu temple. The little beach town of Canggu features another favorite Surf & Yoga retreat at The Pineapple House. As a much smaller retreat in a quieter area, the Pineapple House offers a more personalized experience. Soak in the creative vibes and focus on your health and well-being with the perfect combination of yoga and surfing.
There are so many incredible yoga retreats in Bali that regardless of which town you stay in, you will be guaranteed to find a unique experience to re-inspire yourself. There is no better place in the world to soul search and find a sense of inner peace than on the tropical island paradise of Bali.
