It is also the ideal place to relax, recharge and get hot hot hot during our classes and workshops. The hotel and Ubud Yoga Centre is the village of Nyuh Kuning, which offers the best of Ubud without the touristy feel.

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.
All of the classes are held at Ubud Yoga Centre, 5 min. walk from our hotel.
Overlooking the jungle and equipped with state of the art heating both infrared and airforces heaters and mirrors, with showers and large communal area the Centre also boasts a cafe where they serve mainly organic food and fresh juices and a lifestyle shop.
For the Yoga classes all mats and towels are provided as well as unlimited refillable water and fresh young coconut after class. You will have optional morning classes and optional afternoon yoga classes, and massages
Please don’t feel pressured into attending all classes or excursions; 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 retreat after all!
