I have been wanting to attend BaliSpirit for a couple of years now but i’ve kept missing it. This time, I finally made it and turned out to be perfect timing as the festival was celebrating its 10th anniversary.
BaliSpirit Festival is one of the biggest yoga festivals worldwide which runs for an entire week, day and night! The event includes sessions and seminars related to yoga, meditation, healing, movement and music ran by international presenters.
The festival takes place in beautiful Ubud, great location where all stages/zones are a great size to fit the public and, are well distributed, letting all the greenery be part of the scenery. There is Balinese artwork all around the place and fantastic spots to get some cheeky selfies.
It offers chill out zone, food and vendor stalls as well as a kids area. The food vendors, as you could expect, are mostly Ubud based cafes that have in their menus organic and raw foods but also cater for vegetarians and vegans. There are also massage tents where you can switch off for 15 minutes…or 1 hour.
One of the positives I found was the richness of the program, which was different everyday and gave the audience the option to try different types of yoga, meditation and all related, but you could also interact with the presenters and leave the place full of good energy and good workout.
I have to mention that the sun salutation was absolutely great, so informative and so enjoyable. However, my very favourite was the reggae yoga session guided by Nadine McNeil. I wish I could practice this type pf yoga regularly. It was very much vinyasa flow BUT combined with reggae music and movements. At the session everyone got involved, the energy was unbelievable!
The daytime sessions finish at around 5pm but that does not mean that the party is over. BaliSpirit Festival continues in ARMA for a night concert. This year we could witness the great rhythms of Brooklyn Gypsies, The United Nations and Xavier Rudd among many others.
BaliSpirit Festival is all level of yogi’s dream come true. Delivering a full week of awesomeness and goodness.
