My Pick of The 5 Best Yoga Retreats in Ubud, Bali
When most people think of Bali, they start to imagine the tropical golden sand beaches lined with coconut palms, frequented by golden surfers and bikini babes and of course healthy and luxurious yoga retreats in Ubud with views over the luscious green paddy fields.
Ubud is one of the world’s ‘yoga and healing meccas,’ a small village tucked away inland on the island, surrounded by lush tropical jungle, rice terraces and sacred mountains in the distant horizon. Ubud was for many years home to a number of hippie/artist expats, however, in more recent years has rapidly become a hub for yoga, meditation and living healthier lifestyles, especially after the popularity of ‘Eat Pray Love’.
