THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO YOGA ON THE GILI ISLANDS[social_warfare]
After a few months in Ubud in Bali I craved some serious beach time and left for the Gili islands. By that time I was already addicted to all the great yoga classes available in Ubud and was curious – would I be able to maintain my yoga practice in the Gilis? Luckily there are yoga places now on every island and so there are a lot of options for yoga on the Gili Islands.
Where can you practice yoga on the Gili Islands?
If you’ve never heard about the Gilis, they are a group of 3 tiny islands, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air and can easily be reached by boat from Bali or Lombok. While you wouldn’t be able to say that they are undiscovered in any way (tourism is booming here), compared to Bali it’s a hidden and quiet beach paradise. Well, at least Gili Meno and Gili Air are, Gili Trawangan is a story of it’s own. After the crazy traffic in Ubud I especially loved that there are no cars or motorbikes on the islands, everything and everyone is carried by bicycles and horse carts. Of course there are amazing beaches, stunning sunsets and friendly locals. And quite a few places to practice yoga, too! Of course I had to check some of them out, here is an overview of all the yoga places on the Gili islands.
