yoga retreat bali

Yoga retreat in Bali? Could there be anything more awesome? Maybe. Maybe not. But today I bring you the list of the best yoga retreats in Bali. Who am I? Two years ago I went to Bali as a yoga newbie and just about managed to perfect my simplistic tree pose (see above). Nowadays, I'm back as an advanced yogi, and I have a list for you. No not some hack-job of affiliates* put together by someone who has never been to Bali and never done yoga, but a list of places I would actually recommend to you if you were my actual friend. Mainly because I actually want you to be my friend. I want everyone to be my friend. I'm like a dog when it comes to that. Like a downward dog. (Too much?)

*disclaimer: there are affiliate links in this post, aka I am officially associated with some of these sites, but unlike the hack-jobs I mentioned earlier, I've actually tried and tested these people. It ruins my integrity if I recommend stuff that's crap, and my integrity is worth more than its weight in gold - no affiliates pay that much!

But enough about me, this blog post is about YOU, and how we're going to find you the best damn yoga retreat in Bali ever. We'll find you one that's:

  • Optimal for your skillset (beginner, advanced or somewhere in-between)
  • Optimal for your wallet (we have options ranging between $70/day all the way up to $350/day all options include breakfast, daily yoga and a place to sleep).
  • Optimal for what you want from life - no matter if you want to do the full thing and have an actual outer body yogic experience, or if you want to just get in a few cool insta-shots and then go and party on the beach. (No shame in either, as Yoga Goddess Adrian says, find what feels good!)

Yoga Retreat Bali

1. Best Yoga Retreat Bali

I'm going to start, not with a hotel or a resort, but with a concept: TrovaTrip. If you're looking for a Bali yoga retreat that's personalised, unique, luxurious and unforgettable go for them. Their concept is simple: connect influencers with their followers and put them together on a trip filled with memories that will last a lifetime. Why trust a guide you've never met before? Go with the one whose Instagram stories you follow every day. 

(Actually to be honest with you, TrovaTrip isn't just for Bali, they offer trips with influencers all across the world, but - thanks to an abundance of hot Aussie influencers who are good at yoga, TrovaTrip excels at Bali trips.)

Put simply, when it comes to personalised yoga retreats in Bali, I personally don't think it gets better than this.

All TrovaTrips in Bali are different, of course, depending on who is running them and what they're into. But here are three examples to give you an idea of what you could be getting:

bali retreats
Bali retreats with TawnyJanae $227 per day for 7 days

best yoga retreats bali
 Yoga retreat Bali with Sjana $299 per day for 7 days 

beginner yoga retreat

Luxury yoga retreat with Chelsea $252 per day for 7 days

And if you have an influencer in mind that you'd like to go on a trip with, pester them to find out if they can be a TrovaHost too! 

And if you're thinking about asking me to host a tour, which I very much doubt, please let me know: TrovaTrip asked me recently if I'd host a tour and I was very flattered, but at the moment I don't feel like anyone would want to come with me 😅 

2. The Chillhouse Bali

I love TrovaTrip (see above) for their uniqueness and variety and imo they're the best when it comes to yoga tours around Bali (aka actually moving around Bali). BUT when it comes to the best surf and yoga retreat in Bali (aka not moving around), The Chillhouse Bali is the best, again, in my opinion. 

£60 per night at the Chillhouse Bali gets you a traditional Balinese room complete with tropical shower, daily yoga class, and the best breakfast I've had ever (no exaggeration, seriously, I'm serious this time):

There are yoga classes every day (and twice a day tues through thurs), and they are held in this gorgeous open-sided yoga studio - which (along with their two pools) you actually have access to 24/7. So if you need something a little extra after or before class, you have the whole studio (complete with blocks, matts and bottled water) to go full yoga in. As for the classes themselves, there are many different types from yin to vinyasa, Kundalini to Hatha and beyond. 

As for the food. Oh god. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Local. Organic. Mountains of vegan options. Smoothies....

The usual suspects (cereals, toasts, coffee, blah) PLUS pancakes, fresh fruit, granola, coconut cream, the list could go on, but this is a blog post about yoga retreats in Bali not vegan travel food fest blog, let's move on. 

Yes, the yoga is amazing there, but the Chillhouse also offers many other extras like surf classes, dirt bike tours, rice field tours and so much more.

For more information see my full review on The Chillhouse Bali.

3. Bali Yoga Lifestyle Retreat

Last but not least we have a Bali Lifestyle Retreat ($149/night, 7 nights) which focusses slightly less on yoga than the previous two, but does offer a completely private yoga session. I don't know about you, but I've always found a private lesson in yoga (also in almost anything) teaches me way more than a public lesson, and (especially in yoga) there are some questions I'm just not that comfortable asking the whole class.

What else is on this 7 day Bali retreat? A visit to the Monkey Forest, a traditional herbal walking tour, paddle boarding, cycling tours, private lunch by a rice field and so much more.

So there you have it, hopefully a little bit of something for everyone and everyone in-between.  I hope your trip to Bali is everything you dream of and more, let me know if you have any questions, and for now - Namaste!
