Health & Wellness
Wellness from within
The Balinese believe the body is a sacred temple for the soul, and they do their very best to ensure it’s looked after. Internal and external wellbeing are vital components to Balinese life, so even if you were out drinking one too many Bintang beers, there will be a way to ensure you feel brighter and more revived before you leave.
Bali is quickly becoming a top destination for health and wellness retreats, clean eating courses and yoga seminars. With so many gorgeous resorts, health spas, secluded villages and locals wanting to share their way of life, the health and wellness culture in Bali is open to everyone, no matter how devoted you already are or if you’re embarking on your first juice cleanse or yoga class.
Yoga and spa treatments are the perfect combination
The essence of a Bali holiday sings serenity and few things are more Balinese than yoga by the beach! With studios on every corner and down every street you’ll discover a movement of soulful practice everywhere you go. On offer are all the variations you can imagine: Hatha flow, Vinyasa flow, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bikram and even Tibetan yoga. No matter whether you are a full-time yogi or a yoga novice, trust that you will be carefully guided into the positions that increase blood flow, flexibility, mental health and connectedness.
Don’t miss the annual Bali Spirit Festival, a multi-day event that takes place just outside of Ubud. The festival connects yoga devotees from all over the world and is complete with musicians, healers, yoga apparel retailers, healthy food stands and international yoga teachers in a beautiful setting.
Many resorts offer yoga classes on site with various instructors throughout the day. Movement is nourishment for the soul and can be perfectly paired with a tranquil spa treatment. Visit any spa in Bali for an experience that brings peace to the mind and spirit, and vitality to the body. Using timeless techniques and ingredients that draw on the power of natural herbs and essential oils, such as ginger, frangipani, sandalwood and coconut, a Balinese massage will spoil you for all other massages to come! Body massages, foot massages, aromatherapy, coffee body scrubs and reflexology are just some of the services to help cleanse, detoxify and revitalise the physical body.
Looking for something completely different? The Shihodara treatment is a world-famous treatment originally used by Indian yogis to enhance self-awareness, and Bali is one of the best places on Earth to experience it. Your therapist will be highly trained and spend time massaging vital karmic points while medicated oils flow off your forehead. Said to promote ultimate serenity, this is a memorable experience to enjoy while away.
