It is best to wear something light & comfortable that you can move in. Shorts or leggings, t-shirts, tank tops or crop tops are all perfectly suitable. Denim tends to restrict ease of movement and bikinis, swimwear or sarongs alone are not considered an acceptable amount of coverage.
As we offer free use of our yoga mats, straps, blocks and bolsters during class you need not bring anything but yourself. Although, if you have & prefer your own yoga mat you are more than welcome to bring it along. Additionally, if you would like, a towel or water bottle may be of use during or after class.
No. All classes at our Shala are multilevel and open to everyone from beginners to advanced yogis. Options and variations as well as guidance, direction, demonstration and assistance are all provided by our teacher during classes in order to best accommodate your experience level.
Yogis are highly encouraged to take rest whenever necessary during classes. An essential part of a yoga practice is finding balance between effort and rest. You will learn to acknowledge, accept and listen when your body & breath tell you that a period of rest is required. You will also be directed to take time in positions of rest, stillness & reflection periodically throughout each class.
There are designated areas within our Shala that students can place their personal belongings while attending a class. To keep our space as uncluttered as possible and to provide yogis with sufficient room to move freely on their mats it is requested that you bring no more than a small bag with you. In an effort to prevent disruptions and out of consideration to your fellow yogis we request that all mobile phones be turned off or set to silent for the duration of each class.
Please be advised that we strongly recommended you speak with our teacher prior to attending a class if you have any existing health issues or injuries. We want all yogis to feel safe & welcome to discuss medical conditions that may affect their ability to practice. Yogis can then feel comfortable knowing our teacher will offer advice and recommendations regarding what class or variations of postures will best suite your individual condition.
Our daily yoga classes are suspended until further notice.
We apologies for the inconvenience.
No. The year round average maximum outdoor temperature is 28-30 degrees Celsius, with minimums ranging from 23- 25 degrees. Due to the warm climate our open-air Shala harnesses the gentle ocean breeze and uses ceiling fans to provide airflow during classes.
All regular schedule classes operate on a drop-in basis so there is no need to book in advance. Yoga mats and props are set out prior to each class so that everything is ready for you. We kindly request that you arrive 10-15 minutes before the class start time in order to get settled. We understand that sometimes situations leading to tardiness arise but in order to avoid disruption to the flow of the class we have a no-admittance policy for anyone arriving more than 15 minutes late.
The Nusa Paradise islands offer a variety of different activities so we understand that you may have other plans or obligations while you are visiting. Although we prefer you arrive a bit early and remain for the full duration of the class, if you notify our teacher prior to class a suitable arrangement can be made for you to quietly and respectfully sneak out early with as little disruption to your fellow yogis as possible.
