5 Best Places to Do a Yoga Retreat in Bali
The 5 Best Places to Do a Yoga Retreat in Bali
Have you ever wanted to go on a yoga retreat? Imagine beautiful vegan or raw meals, yoga twice a day, massages… Bliss! A yoga retreat is the perfect way to step back from our ultra busy lives and spend some time reconnecting to what’s important. Lucky for those of us who live in Australia, Bali is just a short plane ride away, and is the perfect spot for a yoga retreat! Today, I’m sharing a few of my favourites:
Run yearly by yogi, Sarah Jane Perman and held at the Bagus Jati Villa in Ubud, this retreat features amazing high vibrational healthy food, a whole lot of yoga, workshops and a dance party or two thrown in! There’s plenty of time to hang by the pool, visit nearby Ubud and twice daily yoga sessions are part of the deal. You’ll come back feeling refreshed and ready to take over the world!
The COMO Shambhala is perfect for the yogi who wants to treat themselves. Nominate your unique wellness objectives and a program will be tailored to suit, whether you want to stay for 3 days or 21. You won’t find just yoga here, the retreat also features pilates, massage, amazing food, and of course, as many massages as you can handle!
The Yoga Barn in Ubud is one of the most popular and well known yoga studios in Bali, and they run around 7 classes per day, ranging from Yin yoga to Vinyasa. The centre works with Bali Spirit to organise budget accommodation nearby, but the Ubud Aura Retreat Centre is right next door, so you can literally roll out of bed straight into savasana. You can choose from their 3 or 7 day cleanse, which includes colonics, massage, daily yoga classes, Shamanic Balinese healing ceremonies, meditation and treatments from the healers who work at the centre.
This award winning retreat is located on the banks of the Ayung River. The vibe is ultra spiritual, so expect to fully embrace the yogic philosophies to get the most out of your stay. The retreat is fully vegan, no alcohol or coffee is served, so it’s the perfect time to kick the caffeine addiction! You can book in for one of the healing programs, Panca Mahabuta for rejuvenation, or Tri Kaya Parisudha for detoxification. Every building on the site has some sacred significance, so you know your stay here will be a special one.
- Build Your Own Retreat
There are so many amazing yoga studios all across the island, why not pick and choose to build your very own yoga retreat! Ubud is particularly well known for it’s proximity to some amazing yoga studios, including The Yoga Barn. You should also consider idyllic Uluwatu, where you can take classes overlooking the beach or under the thatched roof of Morning Light Yoga, where you’ll be accompanied by a gorgeous black Labrador who you might find will join you on your mat by the end of class!
