It is super important to pamper yourself during the Yoga Course in Bali, as your body can get really tired and you need to refresh it with good food and massage!
I’m a raw vegan. So mostly I buy fruit from a small fruit shop 10 min walk from the All Yoga Shala and eat outside the Shala. But if you wish to take a look at other healthy and quality options, which I have tried myself, or have heard from my classmates, here they are:
The one I love the most is Ginger and Jamu—a lovely restaurant with ecological and loving logos and writings everywhere. The staff are smiley and super friendly. It offers raw vegan and other delicious vegetarian options, as well as brilliant names for the recipes 😊You can enjoy yourself there with a beautiful view right off the beach. They also offer nice Tibetan bowls, yoga pants/vests and other related products. It is 10 minutes on foot from the Shala of All yoga.
Gracefully decorated, it offers not only good food, but also some beautiful decorations or accessories. The price is a bit higher than others. But you get a nice clean feeling from the place. It is the closest to the Shala—only 5 minutes on foot. Therefore, a good place for after class discussion 😊
As shown by its name, it offers great choices for vegan babies like me and my girl. My girl LOVES the ice-creams there. And my classmates and I had a big dinner there once, which was very nice. Next to it there was a cinema. 10 minutes on foot from the All Yoga Shala, on the main street.
It is 20 minutes by foot. But closest to Surya homestay—which was the place where a lot of my classmates—including myself, slept. They offer quite nice western and local food, like pizzas and pasta, with very good decoration and atmosphere. Big portion for each plate. So, beware of your stomach! Again, super nice staff, who often gave my girl presents 😊
Our graduation party was held there. They have nice live music and is usually quite full. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to have good pasta and western food.
It is one of my go to evening spots on the island. It’s the perfect place to chill out on the bean bags at the beach and enjoy a stunning view of the sunset. The vibe is young and relaxed, so it’s a great place to mingle and make some new friends. They have a lot of great options, such as handmade organic corn tortillas with lots of different yummy toppings. Pair that with super friendly service, good music (sometimes live bands) and free wi-fi and you have a winner.
I have only experienced two but I think they are the best on this island:
I have a masseur who is from this place and gave me 5 massages at my place during the YTT. It is great! I can’t imagine myself going through the YTT without massage every week!
The place is very beautiful, with a complete service. I love it! The price is higher but it’s worth it. A great place to pamper yourself!
