If you ask any yogi what the yoga capitals of the world are they’ll typically give you one of two answers: Rishikesh, India or Bali. Earlier this year I had the amazing opportunity to practice yoga in Parmath, an incredible yoga ashram in Rishikesh, right at the foot of the Himalayas — it was absolutely gorgeous! Naturally, one of the things I was most excited about doing in Bali was yoga & my excitement was totally validated when I practiced at The Yoga Barn. The Yoga Barn a full service studio in the heart of Ubud, on an organic farm — how cool is that? In the middle of rice paddies & Balinese jungle, The Yoga Barn is the most beautiful yoga studio I’ve ever been to. Check out the view while you practice!
I visited The Yoga Barn on community yoga night which meant I got to practice for free! They had mats & blocks on-hand & welcomed as many people as they could before the studio filled up. Our instructor was very kind, took a lot of time explaining each pose & walked all levels through an easy practice — just what I needed after days of walking. My friends & I left the studio feeling refreshed & feeling lucky to practice in one of the yoga capitals of the world. For a yogi it doesn’t get much better than that! If you’re ever in Ubud do yourself a favor & go to The Yoga Barn, you’ll fall in love immediately & leave on a major yoga high!
What’s a yogi to do once she’s visited it the yoga meccas? Do another yoga challenge of course! My studio’s next challenge kicks off July 8th & I’m ready to once again practice at least 26 times in 30 days. Bring on the oms! Are you ready for some yoga?
