Luxury Bikram Yoga Retreat – Ubud, Bali – October 2017
Saturday, 14th – Saturday, 21st October 2017
We are back in Bali this October. Our 10th Retreat in Bali will be held in magical Ubud; set in the stunning Balinese rice fields and hills. It is not only “world yoga central” as many locals describe it but boasts fantastic restaurants (some of which we will visit), spa’s, local markets, temples and an absolute abundance of nature. It is also the ideal place to relax, recharge and get hot hot hot during our classes and workshops.
We have planned a fantastic week including daily Bikram Yoga classes by top instructors, workshops, cooking classes and more!
Experience the magic and culture Bali has to offer with its beautiful temples, gourmet cuisine, ceremonies and much much more. Take part in daily Bikram Yoga classes in a heated studio, relax during a massage and enjoy freshly prepared meals in a jungle setting. Join a traditional cleansing ceremony, enjoy shopping at the many beautiful shops in Ubud and learn to prepare delicious Indonesian meals during our cooking class. Or simply… Take a dip in the stunning pool at our hotel with a freshly pressed juice or fresh coconut in your hand.
Our Retreat location for the week is Ubud which is located 35 km northeast of Bali’s International Airport; around 1 – 1.5 hours by car. It is attractive to tourists for a variety of reasons.
On a relatively small island with a wealth of attractions, Ubud is centrally located, there are plenty reasons why Ubud was voted recently as the most fascinating city of Asia by Condé Nast Traveler.
The Ubud area is around 200-300 meters above sea level and surrounded by rice fields, which makes it noticeably cooler than the other tourist destinations in Bali, still very hot though on any given day if you are not used to the Indonesian temperatures and humidity.
Neighbouring villages are well known for unique bamboo crafts and furniture, wood- and stone carvings and many other crafts. Ubud is also famous for its art and craft which can be discovered in many of the different galleries, markets and shops. Ubud is popular in part today because it is the best place in Bali to break out of the tourist mode and get off the beaten path, although far from undiscovered.
Ubud’ stunning rice fields
All Yoga classes are held in our own private heated yoga room at the newly built Ubud Yoga Centre, 5 min. walk from our hotel.
Overlooking the jungle and equipped with state of the art heating and mirrors, the Centre also boasts a cafe where they serve mainly organic food and fresh juices and a yoga shop.
For the Yoga classes all mats and towels are provided as well as unlimited refillable water and a healthy juice after class. We will hold one Bikram Yoga Class in the morning around 8am and one in the afternoon around 5.00pm. Most afternoons are further spend with workshops, posture clinics or more time to relax.
Please don’t feel pressured into attending all events and classes; it is a full on schedule but we leave the option to everyone open to attend.
Do as much or as little as you like, it is your holiday after all!
The Bali Spirit & Spa Hotel **** is set in a quiet and peaceful location. It is only a short 5 min. walk to the Yoga Centre. It boasts 2 large pools, one with swim up bar, a spa, temple, meditation facilities and yoga room, the river forest restaurant which offers views of the river valley and a selection of Indonesian and international dishes, a wellness area, dry cleaning and laundry. The ideal place to relax and recharge.
