5 Best Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Ubud, Bali
Ubud, Bali is about 1 hours drive north of the famous southern beaches region of Bali, tucked away in the foothills of the Gianyar regency, sounded by lusciously green rice paddies and terraces and thick tropical jungle. The area is also fast becoming well-known worldwide as an epicenter of yoga & yogic lifestyles and now you’ll find some of the world’s best yoga teacher training courses in Ubud.
Since ‘Eat Pray Love’ was released in 2010, there has been an influx of people searching for their own spiritual journey visiting this once very laid-back, quiet little village. Even though India is the birthplace of yoga, Bali also follows the Hindu religion and is deeply spiritual. Add that to the natural beauty of the island and the kindness of the Balinese people, its no wonder that Bali is one of the best places in the world to do yoga teacher training and Ubud is Bali’s, spiritual heart.
