A Land Rich in Spiritual History and Mysticism

Outside of India, Bali is the reigning world champion of all things yoga.

A land rich in spiritual history and mysticism with beautiful studios set amid lush jungle forests or overlooking the stunning blue ocean waters, Bali has drawn nirvana seekers from across the globe for decades. In recent years, due to the popularity of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, tourists, single gals, and aspiring yogis alike have flocked to the Island of the God’s seeking soulful guidance and bendy glutes. Studios abound throughout the island. From traditional to modern and hippie to hip, with workshops, festivals, teacher trainings, daily classes and retreats to suit every level and style of student, there really a studio for everyone.
