If you enjoy practicing yoga, Bali is a dream come true. The little island paradise is packed with more yoga retreats than you can count, allowing you to meditate, find your zen, and reconnect with yourself under the palms. With stunning views of cerulean seas, lush jungles, and expansive rice fields, Bali is truly the perfect spot to relax your mind, body, and spirit during your yoga vacation.
While you’ll find an abundance of yoga retreats all over the “Island of the Gods,” the cultural center of Ubud has the most to offer, and you’ll find that yoga is more than just a form of exercise – it’s a core way of living. In this little town, you may want to check out Naya Ubud, where you’ll practice yoga daily next to bamboo groves overlooking the river. You can also enjoy the central pool where everyone relaxes with delicious food and fresh juices. Or you may want to look into Soulshine Bali, whose grounds host a river, tropical gardens, several ornate ponds, a swimming pool, and row upon 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 allows you to immerse yourself in the magic of yoga and self-discovery. Among the ideal setting, you’ll enjoy two vinyasa classes per day, daily meditation, and a lifestyle workshop along with delicious meals.
Should you want to explore another area of the island, Ubud isn’t the only place for yogis. If you dream of watching the sunset over the ocean and falling asleep to the sound of the waves, maybe you’ll venture down to Uluwatu or Canggu to attend either of their Surf & Yoga retreats. At Uluwatu Surf & Yoga, not only will you detatch from real life while practicing yoga, you’ll be next to some of the most world-class waves and enjoy breathtaking ocean and cliff views from your private villa. You’ll get to experience Balinese culture as well when you attend the Kecak dance during sunset at the Uluwatu temple. The little beach town of Canggu has another favorite Surf & Yoga retreat at The Pineapple House. As a much smaller retreat in a quieter area, the Pineapple House ensures a personal touch as you soak in the creative vibes and focus on your health and wellbeing through a perfect combination of yoga and surfing.
There are so many amazing yoga retreats on the island that regardless of which town you’d like to stay in, you’re 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 true inner peace than on the tropical island paradise of Bali.
