Amongst the growing offering of yoga classes in the Canggu area of Bali, Serenity Eco Guesthouse fills in the low-cost category well. The property has 2 yoga rooms – each built with sustainable materials and techniques by the owners Daniel and Yatna, a French-Balinese couple.They have transformed Serenity through the years from a family home to today’s busy guesthouse – staying true to their passion for sustainability. After talking to Daniel, it was clear that his intention was to keep Serenity at a price range that will suit travelers on a budget. The studio is simple and unassuming, a bamboo structure on a second floor. Mats are available to borrow at no cost.
Serenity has daily open yoga classes, taught by a mix of foreign and local teachers of various personal experience. The fellow yogis will vary from backpackers staying at the guesthouse to surfers that live in the area, as well as a sprinkling of expats from the nearby villas. On most days you have a wide choice of classes, mostly variations of Vinyasa and some Acroyoga and Restorative. The class timetable is constantly being updated so be sure to check out their website for an up to date schedule.
As an extension of their yoga studio, Serenity holds several Yoga Teacher Training's throughout the year in partnership with Tasmania’s Santosha Yoga School.
And if you should find yourself with some post-yoga time, do ask around and you will be surprised by the numerous ex-initiatives going on at Serenity – everything from permaculture gardening, to alkaline water creation, by the way of raw vegan cakes – there is a passionate team behind this studio.
Opening times: 8 am – 7:30pm – Price Range: 100 k per class
