Ubud is the artistic and cultural heart of Bali. There are many painters, dancers, musicians and sculptors. Three art museums have both traditional and modern paintings and sculpture on display. The Ubud market is a favorite with a vast array of produce and souvenirs. The nearby monkey forest has a temple in the midst of a jungle with many mischievous monkeys. The restaurants of Ubud are famous for their delicious food consisting of Balinese cuisine combined with contemporary culinary techniques. You couldn’t ask for a better place to come to practice yoga, vacation, and fully relax and enjoy yourself!
Our yoga retreat and the Ananda Cottages is located in the cool tranquil hills just a 20 minute walk from the village centre of Ubud, Bali. It offers lovely rural views surrounded by lush, green, fertile rice paddies. Bali’s natural beauty remains a part of Ananda’s grounds which you will be surrounded by during our yoga retreat.
