Why choose Ubud?

Ubud is located in the central part of Bali Island. The name Ubud comes from the Balinese word Ubad that means medicine, inspired by the abundance of medicinal plants & herbs, and considered as a place of “holy inspiration”.

What makes this place so attractive is not only the breathtaking nature, but particularly because Ubud has long been known as the heart of the heritage, arts, and culture of Bali since the 1930s. More than that, Ubud is a special place for meditation, contemplation and self discovery because of its people, Hindu Balinese who preserve their religion as their daily life style. Balinese people have naturally been a real yogi since they were born. Their tradition, shown in any aspects of their life; activities, architecture, culture are naturally yoga practice. This is what makes Ubud become a special place to study yoga and spiritualism.
