Ubud has become the yoga capital of south-east Asia. Many people all over the world are coming to Ubud, Bali to be trained by world class teachers and to live the beautiful Bali lifestyle. Many places like the Yoga Barn and Radiantly Alive concentrate on many aspects of yoga including physical work, meditation and spirituality.
I often go to the Yoga Barn for events, ecstatic dance, yoga in the morning. ‘The Barn’ is an indigenous, rustic, spiritual space, surrounded by terraced rice paddies, nestled in the quaint mountain village of Ubud. ‘The Barn’ strives to provide visitors with an inspiring environment for the nourishment of body, mind and soul.
They offer daily classes, workshops, holistic healing, retreats, and on-site accommodation at their Yoga Barn Guest House. Their Garden Kafe offers healthy food and snacks, prepared for their guests with produce that is locally grown. It’s setting is most beautiful, a perfect place to retreat from the world, quiet the mind and to practice what you love with wonderful people to guide you!
Radiantly Alive is another yoga studio I often go to when visiting Bali. It was initially started by our friend Daniel Aaron in 2011 and has become very popular with the serious yogi. Situated right in the center of Ubud, just steps from the famous Bali Buda restaurant.
Besides their daily workshops, classes and holistic therapies, they offer a yoga teacher training that is established as one of the leading trainings in the world. It’s the perfect place for those seeking to enhance their teaching skills or to deepen their personal yoga practice.
