If the rustling sound of palm trees, the crushing sound of waves or the chirping sound of birds doesn’t calm you down, maybe it’s time to put yourself in the cobra position! We all know that yoga can help a great deal with releasing stress and improve both your mental and physical health.
These are the four best spots in Canggu where I go to for my daily yoga routines and that will always get me back on my feet!
The Practise is a beautiful studio that has the most calming atmosphere. You will practise yoga in a stunning roof studio which overlooks the zen garden as well as green rice fields. Finish your yoga lesson and relax in a comfortable chair with a complimentary ginger tea in your hands while you overlook the zen garden. It’s truly a place where you will find to have your head in the clouds and where you are able to just sit and relax or meditate.
Samadi is a yoga and wellness centre where the sense of calmness and a relaxing vibe hangs in the air. They offer yoga classes everyday and there is also an organic cafe on site. On sundays you can stroll around Samadi’s market after your relaxing yoga lesson and find yourself in a true Bali atmosphere.
Serenity is one of Bali’s most eco friendly guesthouses. This retreat gives you endless options as to different types of yoga lessons, a beautiful swimming pool, places to relax, healing Balinese massages and they even have an onsite warung (restaurant) that serves delicious healthy food. The yoga lessons I usually choose to take here are Aerial yoga and Fly high yoga. As Serenity is a guesthouse everyone that walks around is very zen and down to earth, which really creates the most calming atmosphere.
Desa Seni is an art village that offers daily yoga classes. When walking into this retreat you will find yourself in a little piece of Bali paradise. A path through palm trees and vegetable gardens will lead you to a beautiful yoga spot. This definitely is the most stunning place of all. They also offer a holistic spa and an organic restaurant in which they serve all kinds of green goodness.
Visiting any of these places is an amazing experience and I’m sure you will fall in love with Bali just as much as I did!
