Cost of Yoga Classes in Bali
The average price of joining yoga classes in Bali ranges from US $7–$20 per class but can go higher depending on the location and type of class.
I have been living in Bali for ten years. Yoga has become a popular activity that you must undertake in Bali. The weather, nature, and its vibes just blend into a beautiful scenery that recharges your energy and connects your mind. You can always pursue yoga in the hotel where you stay but joining a yoga class in Bali is about the community and knowledge.
So here are my three best options for a yoga studio on the island:
Yoga Barn, Five Elements, Uluwatu Morning Light
There are plenty of reasons for this are that they provide a good class program, the teachers are professional and friendly, the airflow is perfect, and there is a spacious yoga shala with a beautiful view.
If you are a Yogi, this is your journey. It’s time to book your flight to Bali! Namaste!
