Traveling to Seminyak, Bali but still want to get in your daily yoga? Not to worry! There are many options for doing yoga in Seminyak. To help you still plan yoga into your routine during vacation, this article will cover the most popular options and weigh the pros and cons.
These are the most obvious choice for most people locally. Most people who do yoga regularly will opt for a studio membership to save money on classes. However, this option can be an issue if you’re staying in Bali temporarily. For one, you might have to pay a higher price than members per session, which can be costly. Also, if the location isn’t within walking distance of your hotel, it can be quite a hassle planning transportation to the studio in between other vacation activities.
On the plus side, studios provide a sense of community and can help you connect with locals or other people doing yoga in Seminyak on vacation.
Most gyms will offer group classes, and that includes yoga. If you already have a membership at a gym available worldwide, you might be able to continue going in Bali and use the yoga classes there for much cheaper. (Check with your gym to be sure.) Plus, if you’re already planning to go, this can be better as far as convenience.
The downside of yoga classes at a gym, besides the travel involved to get there, is that the ambiance is usually much different than a studio or retreat. Since the atmosphere is set up for a gym environment, it likely won’t be a “zen” as places that offer yoga more exclusively.
Yoga classes are available in several places online these days, making it easy to take them with you anywhere that was WiFi and a yoga mat (which you can bring yourself). This is much more convenient, and virtually free, compared to other options.
What online classes lack is community, accountability, and atmosphere. You might not feel like getting up before the rest of your party on vacation to do yoga, and self-motivating for a online class isn’t always easy. Plus, the yoga teacher is talking to you, but he/she can’t be there to give feedback on poses.
Yoga retreats are great options for those on vacation in Seminyak. If you’re planning to stay in a resort, check to see if they offer daily yoga classes and retreat options. Sometimes the classes are included for free with your stay, and it’s much easier to do yoga each morning if all you have to do is roll out of bed and join a class right there in the resort.
Plus, retreats are often a great value for the price, whether you just want daily yoga classes and spa treatments or want a full immersion to detox your system during vacation. Classes are usually much smaller than other options, too, which makes the experience more intimate and powerful.
