Yoga in Balian
Balian is a dreamy destination for yogis. Classes are held here regularly – some just a stone's throw from the beach, and all with plenty of opportunity to drink in the exceptional sea views after class.
There are two beautiful shalas at Pondok Pitaya – one opening onto the ocean, the other onto the garden – and often two classes are offered each day, in the morning and in the afternoon. Yoga teacher trainings (200 hour) are also held here regularly. Please check the class schedule with the hotel's reception (email firstname.lastname@example.org) and book your space 90 minutes before the class starts. Classes are Rp125,000 each and include a complimentary health drink. Interested in staying at Pondok Pitaya? Read more about the hotel here.
Nicky Yoga Shala

Nicky teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa at 9am and Hatha flow at 4pm; his classes are 90 minutes long. Classes are Rp125,000 each; mats, straps and blocks are provided. It's preferable that you book a day in advance, and you can reach Nicky via WhatsApp on +6283117276210.
