Yoga Retreat Bali 2021: Finding the Best Retreats

3rd February 2021

The beautiful island of Bali has become known in the health-minded sphere to be an incredible location for all things spirituality, wellness, decadent spa treatments, veganism, palm tree house galore, and of course yoga. And when it comes to taking a yoga retreat Bali is truly like nowhere else — there is no better place. For years now, people have been flocking to the island at all stages of their yoga journey to take a break from their daily life and experience all the incredible energy and rejuvenation retreats the island has to offer to practice yoga or do a yoga teacher training.

If you think you’re not advanced enough or not good enough (I hear that often), here’s one of many yoga quotes I truly love: “A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.” There are yoga retreats in Bali for everyone’s individual needs, and I hope this post inspires you to take your first step towards fitness retreat packages that include daily yoga sessions, an outdoor swimming pool, beautiful beaches, palm trees and other lush vegetation, and healthy food (some raw foods too) in the most beautiful setting.

With countless Bali yoga retreats ranging from month-long to a day retreat, the island of the Gods and its ancient wisdom is a true epicenter for yoga, health and wellness retreats. I feel like Soulshine Bali, Azadi Retreat, and the Yoga Barn are already world-famous, but with so many other top picks Bali retreats to choose from, I narrowed my best picks down the best yoga retreats Bali has to offer (read this for some Bali itinerary idea) to help guide you in your decision and find the best yoga retreat Bali to suit your own goals for your daily practice in paradise.


***The best time to visit Bali is from April to September which is the dry season.
