What students say about us
We were blessed to start each day with a yoga class run by Thia. She had such a loving and empowering presence, and shared with us vinyasa, yin, pranayama, and kirtan; a beautiful blend for our morning practice. The studio feels peaceful and is nestled between local Balinese residences and businesses. With such a relaxed and peaceful vibe, it’s hard not to get lost in the magic of Lembongan. Gorgeous beaches, friendly people, sacred traditions.
Booking for the trip was seamless all information was clear and I was well prepared. I booked accommodation as part of my course and stayed just next door to the studio in a guest house – very convenient! Yoga Dunia provided very helpful advice on boat bookings to the island and everything went smoothly. I’m so satisfied with my experience, I will be back again!
