Bali is rich with a culture of self-care. In Balinese culture, taking care of yourself is deemed as highly important. Therefore, spas are plentiful and massage is everywhere. And the spas are not only world-class, but they’re also really reasonably priced.

Beyond just caring for the physical body, Bali has a deeply rooted spiritual culture and meditation, worship, and ritualistic prayer are part of everyday life. Thus, Bali offers the perfect environment to dive within as you deepen your yoga and meditation practice.

5. The Peaceful Silence

In our modern world, it’s quite rare to find silence. There’s always a car honking or a siren wailing or a phone ringing. Silence is hard to come by these days.

But thankfully, there are still places like Bali left in the world. While many parts of Bali are bustling and busy and full of noise, there is still an abundance of secluded areas that echo with peaceful silence.

If you go on a yoga retreat in Bali, you can savor that beautiful silence and use it as an opportunity to further look within. You can completely surrender into the silence and stillness of savasana. You can fully withdraw your senses in your meditation practice. And from this silence, you can better listen internally. And it’s so, so rare that we get to do that these days.

6. The Plethora of Activities

There are almost an infinite number of activities in Bali to explore and adventure and relax and indulge. There is so much on offer there that you’ll start planning your trip back before you’re even halfway through your first because you’ll never fit all the activities into one short stay!

7. The Simple Pace of Life

Bali teaches you to slow down, to enjoy the moment, and to find happiness in the simple pleasures of life. It reminds you of what truly matters in life so you can return home refreshed and maybe even renewed.

The simplicity of Bali is the heart of its beauty. Everything is just right—exactly as it is.
