The 7 Best Yoga Studios in Sanur in 2024

Bali has been a major tourist destination known for its beach spots and lush mountains. Due to its affordability, visitors spend months on the island in villas and resorts living the quintessential tropical life. But for those familiar with Canggu or Seminyak, the busy crowd and traffic has now become just as a part of the Bali experience as the scenery.

Sanur, on the other hand, is found east of these popular beaches and is considered by many as laid-back. Yoga Studios in Sanur are truly spectacular.

Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida are a short boat ride away from Sanur, and could be the perfect spot for those looking to get away from the congestion found westside. Before Bali’s big tourism boom, Sanur was actually the island’s major attraction. Today, the coastal town is less commercialized and home to beachside resorts that offer true relaxation.
