I am sitting at Shady Shack one of many healthy cafes here in Canggu. When I am not staring at my computer (I bet my face looks super concentrated or as other people would say: grumpy), I have the best view of the rice fields. Of course, I am drinking a green juice, while girls in yoga pants pass my table. Yoga pants or hipster outfits: these are two of the main styles here in Canggu.
Watching all the yoga pants passing by inspired me to write an article about where to do yoga in Canggu. Of course, this is not a new topic in fact if you google “Yoga in Canggu “you will get 305’000 results. So I am not telling you where you have to go (because I don’t get paid for it haha) but I am telling you where I personally go for yoga, what I like and how my experiences were. And if this article will help you to find the best yoga place for you, then I am happy.
This place is brand new and so are their yoga mats. I do have my own mat but sometimes I just can’t be bothered to carry it around the whole day. This is why I am more than happy that The Practice offers new and clean essentials. But that’s not the reason why I love going there. Their classes are amazing and the view on an elevated gazebo makes your yoga experience unique. I love going to Jyoti’s Vinyasa classes because her teaching is gentle and always has a good vibe. Even though a drop in class can seem expensive at 140k compared with other yoga places, I still go there regularly. The Practice also offers free workshops and other happenings on and off the mat.
When you enter Desa Seni you are immediately surrounded by tropical plants and that “Bali is paradise“ feeling kicks in. While you walk to the yoga shala staff will ring the gong, which I think is a nice thing touch. I always attend Angela’s Hatha class. Her vibe is just unique and being in this quiet and tropical surrounding, grounds me immediately. One of the many reasons why living in Bali is just amazing is the possibility to join fantastic classes in such wonderful surroundings.
Serenity Eco Guest House
When I first moved to Bali I spent over three weeks at this eco-friendly surrounding and tried almost every class. I can truly say I was never disappointed with any session. Most of my time I worked on my Ashtanga skills with Fernando. I can only suggest to go and try a class, I certainly love his teachings. The variety of classes is huge all at an amazing price of 100k IDR per session. Classes are taught in two different shalas.
I just recently discovered this place, even though it is a very famous place here in Canggu. I am always at the Samadi Sunday market to buy fresh veggies and eggs. But their yoga is absolutely worth going too. Samadi is specialised on Ashtanga yoga and like Serenity they offer MySore classes every morning. I guess in the future I will spend some more time at this lovely place.
My green juice is finished and so are my tips for yoga places in Canggu. When I visit and like new places I will of course update my list.
