In your own time. On your own schedule. Yoga includes morning and afternoon varied types of yoga asana and meditation, are shared in open air octagon tent, surrounded by the green of nature.

The Lodge Library with spiritual, philosophical, self help titles, and fun-frivolous-fiction gets smiles and applause.
The volunteer program offers an experience of a lifetime within a true eco community â€“ off the grid and eco green to the extreme. The message was loud and clear, â€œBuild a Silent Retreat Center for Prayer and Meditation.â€ Whoâ€™s to say when or how or why weâ€™re called to do what we do, but after much personal resistance, and a vision of 2 mountains, water, and hotsprings, the â€œwhereâ€search began.
Serendipitous events rolled into play, including a significant â€“ but not enough â€“ donation from a philanthropist in Switzerland, who shortly thereafter passed away. A Balinese family, with 4 hectares at the base of the mountain, and vision to protect the land for future generations appeared on scene. . . and a partnership for 100 years was forged. People continue to show up with skills for this or that: construction experts, permaculture maniacs, yoga gurus, whole, raw & ethnic chefs, and many worker-bees; Western, Balinese and Javanese.
We continue to . . . . stumble forward with trust that the right people and events arrive at the right time and place keep our hearts open to new ideas and loving philosophy embrace Truth experiment, brain-storm and support creative process support an environment for maximum human potential feel passionate about having 100 persons in prayer and meditation meditate and pray daily and listen to Divine Source.

Welcome to Seminyak Yoga Shala.

The Shala is right in the centre of the busy area of Seminyak. Moments away from most of the hotels and restaurants, we are in the perfect position for all of you to find us so easily. It is simply a walk, short bike ride or taxi ride to find us.
We are offering many different styles of Yoga so everyone can come and share the magic. Our teachers are wonderful and love yoga so much they decided to devote their life to it and share with everyone they could. This is a magical life journey and we take time and patience to choose exactly the right teachers to join our team. We offer a closed room Shala at Seminyak Yoga Shala. This means that there are no mosquitos to interrupt your yoga practice.
We love the quiet of this room and worked extremely hard to make this room noise free. You wont believe how quiet and relaxing it is inside our shala. On the main road, moments away from the hustle and bustle, we offer the peace and quiet that yoga is famous for. We provide mats and hand towels for you and invite you to come and share our light and love of a yoga practice. Seminyak Yoga Shala is the perfect place to practice yoga on your holiday in Bali.

We are the only shala in this area offering such a beloved practice. These classes all happen at 7.30am. Mysore Ashtanga Yoga is the style that shares the magic fully with the teacher and student. The students attend class and the teacher slowly shares the practice with them. Assisting when needed and helping as much as they can. These classes are not led which means that students need to work a little bit to make it happen. This is magical and uplifting and we love it. We also offer Hatha Vinyasa Flow classes and these are totally led by the teacher.
These classes begin at 9.30am and also are offered at 4pm and 5.30pm. Please check our schedule on this website to find the class and time that suits you best.

We are the first Yoga Shala of our type and style in Seminyak. We believe that yoga is a sacred practice that is shared and passed down from the teacher to the student. We search the world for the perfect teachers and we take very seriously the art and practice that is yoga. That doesnâ€™t mean that we donâ€™t have fun in class.
Yoga is a sacred practice and life is also sacred but life can and is fun, share that with us in your yoga class. We welcome the most advanced to the first time beginner at Seminyak Yoga Shala. Everyone is welcome and we await your presence in our beautiful and heart felt shala.
Daniel and Yatna
Born and raised in France, I came to Bali in the early 90â€™s to broaden my horizon in a place many deemed the last true paradise on earth. There I met my Balinese wife, Yatna, and until today have been together ever since. After having a son, Krishna, and a daughter, Bambou, we felt justified to build a family home. A place that we could truly call ours. Built in 2003, Serenity Eco Guesthouse was finally ready to accommodate our whole family.
Initially we only had one villa but we added soon two more so visiting friends and relatives could be easily accommodated. Six years later, in 2007, when the children had grown up and home to them was anywhere BUT home, we decided to open up our house to friendly visitors and travellers. Set in the harmonious surroundings of Canggu and only a five-minute stroll away from the beach, Serenity Eco Guesthouse offers a tranquil retreat for everyone.
Well known by surfers and yogis, come experience the waves or join in one of our daily yoga classes held in our Yoga Shala. With a wonderful variety of accommodation to suit your individual needs, from private superior rooms, cozy singles to comfortable dormitories, we provide free Wi-Fi, parking and a Cozy Corner with a TV & DVD player. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ambience by the 14 meter outdoor pool, join one of the many yoga classes ranging in different styles from Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, or treat yourself to a healing Balinese massage. With an in-house â€˜Warungâ€™ featuring healthy homemade meals â€“ Alkaline Restaurant offers plenty of variety for everyone to choose from. Also catering for Vegans and Vegetarians, with no MSG or chemical enhancements used.
Located only a 45-minute drive from Ngurah Rai Airport and 20 minutes from popular Kuta / Seminyak areas, come and experience the peace, love and harmony with Serenity. The most friendly guesthouse in Bali. Want to Host Your Own Retreat? Looking for a place that is far from the loud clubs of Kuta and Seminyak? A place that has the chilled out ambience of Ubud, a strong Hindu culture and yet close to the beach? Serenity Eco Guesthouse and Yoga, located in Canggu, is that place. Serenity offers two Yoga Halls for Rent. For accommodation we have a variety of Single and Double rooms, suiting all budgets. A meditation room, garden, pool and chilling areas provide the perfect studying and relaxation environment in between yoga sessions.

Prana Veda Sanctuary is an organic manifestation of my life’s dream and vision. “Live your dream” was always deep inside myself and the vision to create a space of healing with my passion for community and love for people. Life guided me to Bali and to this place of tropical beauty by the Indian Ocean. After deep meditations and lots of dreams, I designed it from the ground up. Then, together with the Balinese from the village, with their great craftsmanship, we built it to serve as a Sanctuary, Guesthouse, Holiday Retreat, Healing Place and a Social Children’s Association.
I feel very blessed and thankful for this gift.
Prana Veda Sanctuary was opened in 2010 to connect people from east and west, to learn, grow, heal and just be.
Renate is a German-, French- and English-speaking therapist, who came to Bali for the first time 30 years ago. Since then, she has fallen in love with this magical island. Her professional journey started as a Physical Therapist in Switzerland and guided her as a volunteer in a home for handicapped children in Singapore for the Red Cross. Later she gained 20 years of experience in her own clinic in Germany. During this time, her son Marc grew up and enriched her life tremendously. On her path to holistic healing, she added psychotherapy trainings. Over the course of 9 years she spent half of her time in India studying and eventually began teaching Ayurveda, Yoga and Meditation. She has guided workshops and seminars in many countries.
It is her intention to provide you with a very special place and to offer you the necessary tools so that you can activate your self-healing potential and realize your natural state of wholeness.
In Sanskrit, Prana Veda means “the science and wisdom of life energies”; a place of power that invites everyone who is a researcher and seeker and wants to study life energies with us.
Prana Veda is a dream of paradise with a common spirit, designed to create a safe sanctuary and participate in creating a “New World” by planting a seed to awakening us out of our conditioning.
And another dream of mine is that someone can be found who wants to live here in our small community, who still carries the vision of Prana Veda and who wants to take over the day-to-day business in the future.
