Top villas for hosting YOGA RETREATS IN BALI
When you mention Bali yoga retreats to anyone the first thing they say is: ‘which yoga retreat are you going to in Bali’?
Bali is definitely the best and one of the most exotic destinations to host your next yoga retreat. What could be better than waking up in the morning and doing a 1-hour hatha yoga session by your own private swimming pool overlooking the rice fields of the ocean? How zen is that?
Spending some quality time holidaying in these yoga villas is a perfect way for you and your friends to really connect with nature and deepen the yoga experience while at the same time enjoying the luxury and pampering that only a Bali villa can give.
Bali seems to attract yoga types. Those that are in search of something deeper than just shopping and sightseeing. Over the past decade, we have seen yoga studios pop up all over the island of the gods catering for the increase in demand from yogis. In addition to all these new centres opening up there has also been an increase in inquiries from people who want to host their own yoga retreat in the luxury and privacy of their own private villa where they can serve delicious healthy food & provide comfy luxurious accommodation for their guests.
The trend is on the rise for these customised yoga retreats. They make a great alternative and offer a unique experience to those large and impersonal yoga studios/centres.
Following are the best private villas to organise your dream Bali yoga retreat!
