2. Radiantly Alive, Ubud

3. Intuitive Flow, Ubud

However, her studio is a must try so that you can decide whether to participate with her and learn her techniques to internal purification.
4. Prana spa Bali, Seminyak

It offers fruit facials and other relaxing treatments that helps to add on to that glow after detoxification both internally and externally.
5. Power of Now Oasis, Sanur

Power of Now Oasis is present on the beach where the practitioners can hear the enchanting sounds of the ocean waves crashing the shore. The center is built on the nautical theme with the construction shaped like the shell of the green turtle. The studio is made from 100% bamboo.
6. Shankari’s Yoga Retreat
If you wish to rejoice nature in its full glory this is the exact place where you will want to be because this yoga retreat is located on the banks of sacred Ballan River. With no crowd the deserted coastlines are similar to the ones where Hollywood movies are shot. This is a great spot for people who lose themselves to nature completely. They welcome teachers to present their workshops and teachings, so if you want to go there and did not get a swap, this could be a good opportunity. Remember to contact them in advance to ensure they can accommodate your teachings.
7. The practice, Canggu
The practice is a relatively new spot to practice and teach yoga. It is located in less touristy Canggu, a town growing in popularity due to its rice fileds and great waves for surfers. Canggu is just 15-45min ride from Seminyak depending on traffic (which can be very bad at pick hours). If you want to be close to the center, yet feel apart of the craziness of Seminyak Canggu might be just right for you. At The practice, you will feel welcome since the moment you set in a foot. All teachers are extremely welcoming and helpful. The classes are rather full (expect 10-30 people per class), but the atmosphere feels calm and caring.
