Bali and yoga seem to go hand-in-hand, with the island being one of the most popular spots in the world for the practice. Yoga has roots in Hinduism, and it harmonises with the island’s spirituality, natural beauty, and relaxed atmosphere. The Island of the Gods is the perfect place to practise yoga, go inwards, relax your mind and stretch out your body. The yoga culture and community is thriving here, from the temples and hillsides of Ubud, down to the shores of Canggu Beach, and through the cliffs of Uluwatu.
Bali’s natural, spiritual setting with its lush green rice fields and stunning ocean views is endlessly calming. Throughout the island, yoga shalas and yoga studio Bali continue to grow in popularity, while creating spaces to practise yoga in a comfortable and inclusive environment. Whether you’re a dedicated yogi or complete beginner, there are daily yoga classes for everyone.
At Finns, we have a selection of yoga classes between our two premier venues, Finns Recreation Club and Finns Beach Club, so yogis or fitness enthusiasts or beginners can choose a session to meet their needs and lifestyle. Start your day with an early invigorating Ocean Yoga session at Finns Beach Club, in a beachfront setting with morning ocean breezes. Or, later in the day, head to Finns Recreation for yoga classes in our studio rooms.
Throughout Bali you’ll find a new variety of yoga classes from fitness focussed, to deeper flexibility to traditional forms of Yoga. You may even find a few that are more modern, to incorporate music, movements and ecstatic dance.
At Finns Beach Club, we offer a morning yoga class every day at 7:15am. Our classes are in the Sunset Lounge, a serene setting overlooking the sand and waves of Berawa Beach Canggu. Finns Beach Club Bali ocean yoga classes are for everyone and all skill levels. If you’re looking for a yoga class in Canggu there are 6 different types of classes to choose from. Each session has been carefully designed and crafted by our team of yoga experts, to awaken your mind and body. So you’ll end your class feeling revived, relaxed as well as energised for your day.
If you cannot make it to Ocean Yoga in the morning, don’t worry, we also have classes later in the day, in our studio room at Finns Rec Club. As part of our brand new Fitness Centre Gym Bali, we have expanded our offering for group classes and training, which includes yoga, pilates, breathwork, and sessions that are specifically designed for neck and shoulder pain, and lower back pain relief.

If you’re here to try for your first time, a seasoned regular, or if you are here for a yoga retreat Bali, or yoga teacher training, you will find a holistic, spiritual experience involving the mind, body and soul.
Bali’s spirituality attracts yogis from around the world, because of the yoga’s well-known benefits for healing the body through breathwork, flexibility, and strength-building. Bali is well-known for providing unique healing options through spirituality. This is why many healers and yoga wellness centres have a variety of therapy healing programmes.
The wellness community in Bali is enormously popular and now has so many different styles of healing practices. From energy healing, Reiki, sound healing, hypnotherapy, psychic and spiritual guidance and traditional Balinese healing.
It’s no secret that yoga has numerous benefits for your mind, body and soul. It’s an ancient practice, with roots dating back over 5,000 years to North India, and many terms used throughout the practice are Sanskrit.

Movement based and breathing based practices have been shown to drastically improve depressive symptoms and support anxiety. It has also been proven to improve your self-esteem and potentially prevent burnout.

The pillars of yoga are meditation, breathwork and rituals. With the foundations and a few basic poses, anyone – from toddlers to seniors – can experience the simple benefits of yoga with clarity and calmness of the mind, the release of tension, and a happier mood overall.
