Take a yoga class overlooking the Bali jungle and then play 18 holes of golf in the centre of a volcano! The Bali yoga and golf holiday is a hot new travel trend. Plus stay in a private jungle villa with pool not far from 5 yoga classes and events, and within reach of Bali’s spectacular golf courses.
East Meets West Making Your Bali Yoga And Golf Holiday Epic
Bali’s eastern spiritual culture draws yogis from around the globe. And, its western approach to golf along with a great selection of championship courses makes it a world favourite for golfers. So whether you’re into golf and your partner’s into yoga, or you both love playing golf and doing yoga, you can have the best of both worlds on a Bali yoga and golf holiday. And, you get to enjoy it in an idyllic jungle setting.
Why Come To Bali for Yoga?
Because, with at least 600 yoga retreats, Bali has to be one of the most popular yoga destinations in the world. Why?
Well for a start, there’s a kind of Zen in the air. And, people talk about Bali being a spiritual place. But, what does that really mean? Ok, the island is peppered liberally with Hindu Temples, but it goes a lot further than that. You see, Balinese Hinduism is defined by its blend of Shivaism (worship of the goddess Shiva) and Buddhism. And The Balinese Hindus worship a unique pantheon of gods. Prevailing over mountains and lakes, these gods lend a sense of the sacred to just about everything on the island. And, it’s this inherent culture which is evident in pretty much everything in Bali. Call it spiritual, call it religious, either way, it’s the profound sense of peace that most visitors to Bali remember. That’s why the Bali yoga holiday is so special, since inner peace is only ever a few pranayamas away.
Bali Is Golfer’s Paradise
Most people think of Bali as a tropical paradise with volcanic beaches, rice fields and lush jungles. And it is all these things. But did you know that golfers refer to the island of Bali as “the most beautiful golf course in Asia”? Bali is home to world-class golf courses making the idyllic island one of the best places for a golf holiday.
So How Do I Blend These Two Favourites For The Bali Yoga And Golf Holiday Of A Lifetime?
Well you can stay in a private jungle villa with a pool, off the beaten tourist track and have the Bali yoga and golf holiday you’re craving.
So you can retreat to absolute peace and tranquility after your day on the golf course. And hey, maybe stretch out your back and those tight shoulders. Because, what could be better way to wind down than with mind-stilling and body restorative yoga overlooking the jungle.
AT Bali Palms, which locals call the “real” Bali, you can do yoga to your heart’s content, just steps from your villa, on a magnificent purpose-built deck overlooking the lush Bali jungle. But, we ALSO found 5 yoga venues just a short drive away from Bali Palms.
And when you want to tee off, Bali Palms is also within a car-ride from 5 golf courses. In fact, the world class Nirwana Bali Golf Club is only 50 minutes away.
So, it’s time to plan your Bali yoga and golf holiday.
