A tropical oasis for retreats in Ubud Bali
Cocooned amongst rice paddies and coconut palms, The Shala Bali is a place of peace, wellness and connection to nature. We are committed to offering a beautiful environment for Yoga, conscious living and wholesome vegetarian food - all within the tranquility and seclusion of the rice fields for which Ubud is renowned.
The picturesque and inspiring setting of this beautiful yoga facility, though only walking distance to Ubud town center, is a tranquil retreat from the thriving and exciting arts, crafts and culture capital of Bali.

Ria - Yoga teacher & host
Our inspiring Yoga teacher and retreats host Ria first started Yoga as a way to keep fit and healthy to complement her active lifestyle and love of the outdoors. After exploring different styles in her homeland Bali, she found her Yoga niche and spent three years in India developing her practice under senior
teachers. Having experienced profound benefits physically and mentally Ria wanted to further deepen her knowledge of Yoga and before returning to Bali, she completed her 200 hour teacher training and received blessing to teach. Ria receives ongoing training and mentoring with our experienced Shala Bali founders.
