Yoga

A stunning riverside Yogashala is perfect for yoga, fitness, or quiet meditation listening to the sounds of the river.  Magical.

There will be two daily sessions with a variety of yoga to choose from throughout the week, including vinyasa flow, gentle stretch and relaxation, and asana practices that will physically challenge and invigorate practitioners.  Classes can accommodate all skill levels, both new and experienced yogis. 

For those wanting more of an aerobic challenge, our instructors will also offer a daily fitness class such as Burn and Firm, Bootylicious, Pilates Fusion and Chiseled Core.

Beautiful Town of Ubud

Ubud is a tropical paradise jungle awash with waterfalls, lush green rice terraces, ancient Hindu temples, majestic royal palaces, and monkeys. Yes, monkeys and lots of sunshine. Ubud is the cultural capital of Bali, an island in Indonesia.

Bali is a deeply spiritual place. Every religion is practiced freely, but 83% of the Balinese are Hindu in what is an otherwise Muslim nation. Ubud has become a yoga and healing Mecca, with renowned yoga studios and many incredible raw/vegan cafes and juice bars.

The movie Eat Pray Love was filmed in and around Ubud. The main character goes to Ubud looking for balance and ends up falling in love (“Love”).

The Cuisine

Feast on delicious Balinese cuisine bursting with vibrant color and flavor.  Daily breakfast buffet plus group meals for lunch and dinner.  Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and chicken/fish options are available. 24 hour tea/coffee making facilities, free flow filtered water and daily fresh fruit included. An a la carte menu is also available throughout the day until 9 pm, for an additional cost.

OMG! This looks amazing!
