When it comes to yoga retreats, Bali has a lot to offer. There are many reasons why yoga retreats are becoming more popular by the day!

Chances are that, if you have come to read this article, you are looking for the best yoga retreats in Bali – and I will help you find them!

Apart from connecting you with nature and disconnecting from technology (heck, yes, we all need that!), the best yoga retreats in Bali can help you deeply transform your life and inspire you to more mindfulness in your daily life.

Bali is a true hotspot for yoga retreats in Indonesia and possibly in all of Southeast Asia.

People come from all over the world travel to Bali to deepen their practice and immerse themselves in the spirit of local tradition. Ritual is woven into the lives of Balinese people, with practices to welcome cleansing and protection that form a central part of the culture of the island.

You can feel it in the energy in the streets, the jungle and the beaches; spirituality is alive in Bali. It’s impossible not to feel a sense of being a part of something bigger than yourself.

I've personally been to a few retreats and they are all very different, so read til the end and do your research so you get the most out of your chosen Bali yoga retreat.

Why Choose Bali As A Yoga Retreat Destination?

Why is Bali so special when it comes to yoga retreats?

Apart from the incredible scenery of the island that makes you immediately find peace of mind, Bali has a predominantly Hindu culture. Therefore, Bali has a rich history of yoga and the Balinese culture is known for its appreciation of combining spiritual life with nature.

In addition, Bali is a great place to easily combine yoga with things like surfing and other outdoor activities, as well as shopping opportunities and hanging out in beautiful cafés serving up amazing healthy food.

There are many awesome places for a yoga retreat in Bali. You could join an Ubud yoga retreat, practice yoga in stylish and sophisticated Seminyak or visit my all-time favourite spot for yoga, Canggu.

Bali is the perfect place for a yoga retreat, if you…

  • Like sunshine, warm weather, and plenty of fresh coconut water
  • Crave the drama and greenery of the jungle, but tempered by the serenity of a stunning sandy beach
  • Want to practice yoga and meditation in a spiritually rich culture (and perhaps take part in a local ritual or two)
  • Want to boost your health with delicious vegetarian or vegan food (there's an abundance of that in Bali!)
  • Enjoy a welcoming vibe that makes you feel at home, even in a culture that feels different from your own
  • Want to find a yoga retreat with something extra; for example, you’ll have no trouble finding an Ayurveda retreat or a surf retreat in Bali

If you'd like to combine your yoga retreat in Bali with seeing the island, I recommend you read my ultimate Bali itinerary for first-timers.

Even though yoga didn't do it for me in the distant past, I quickly became an addict after joining my first yoga class in Canggu a few years ago.

The Best Yoga Retreats In Bali – Final Words

Each Bali yoga retreat is different, offering you a unique experience.

Meditation and wellness retreats are extremely helpful in our busy world to find peace and allow us to slow down. I find that a lot of great ideas come to your mind while relaxing at a yoga retreat for a week in Bali.

So, if you feel you are at a crossroads right now, you better pack your essentials and go book that flight to Bali.

One more thing…

Although yoga and meditation retreats take place in Bali all year round, the best time to go is between April and September, when the weather is dry.

We hope you find your dream retreat on this list — and enjoy beautiful Bali!
