The Yoga Barn

Tropical Wellness Center

I am going to start off with one of the most famous yoga studios in Ubud, The Yoga Barn. A yoga hub with a full calendar of classes, courses, accommodation and spa – it’s everything you could need in one place! Plus its right in central Ubud, you can easily stop by cafes and shops after class. Walk from your Ubud villa to calm and relaxing classes.

If you are looking to take a one-off class during your trip, I highly recommend an early morning flow class. It is the perfect balance of yoga and meditation to get you ready for your day. Daily classes run from 8am through to 8pm, you can fit it around your schedule.

Yoga Barn Ubud can also be a more immersive experience. You can throw yourself into a yoga retreat, or take advantage of the staycation package – stay onsite in their cosy nest room, have access to yoga and meditation classes, as well as ecstatic dance sessions. It is a great option for a newbie looking to get an overview of all the types of yoga. You can join up to 8 classes over the span of 3 days. The perfect start to your yogi life!

There is also a detox retreat. It includes a 7-day stay at the onsite accommodation, fresh juices provided for every meal, and guidance through the detox period. Take part in yoga classes, relax in the Ayurvedic spa, and get to know the other detoxers attending.

The Yoga Barn offers everything for an intense introduction to yoga, or an easy flowing daily practice.

Breathe in fresh jungle air and listen out for the sounds of nature. Ubud Yoga House is idyllically located among the rice paddies, pormising an unforgettable yoga experience.

Welcoming beginners and pros into their open treehouse-esque studio, it is the perfect setting to immerse yourself into the world of yoga.

Daily classes and teacher courses are all held in the open bale-style house. Overlooking luscious green views, I can’t think of a better place to escape the crowds and fully relax into a calm flow.

Take part in an early morning, sunrise gentle yoga class, and turn off for the day with some candlelit yoga. These sessions are some of the best ways to wind-up/down. You can really disconnect from the outside world, and concentrate on your own healing.

Spacious Yoga

Fri-Sun 06:30
Jl. Goutama Sel. No.2, Ubud

Spacious Yoga

Mysore Ashtanga Yoga Course

The Spacious Yoga studio exclusively teaches Ashtanga yoga under the guidance of the owner and yogi, Iain Grysak.

Using the Mysore method – where you learn a sequence and repeat it at your own pace within the class at least 6 days a week – it is a great place for beginners and pros to practice together. It gives you the opportunity to perfect your technique with assistance from the teacher.

If you already know the sequence, you can join one of the daily Mysore style classes. Alternatively, throw yourself into the practice with one of the 2 week or 4 week courses. It will help you develop your understanding of the movements to move more effectively and with purpose. This is the ideal course for those interested in expanding their knowledge.

I would definitely recommend this studio to the more advanced yogi who is looking for a new challenge – and to learn about a different type of yoga. Follow up by relaxing your muscles with a Balinese massage in one of the best Ubud spas.
