While Ubud is the yoga hub of Bali, Canggu certainly isn’t far behind. Since Canggu is a centre not only for tourists but also digital nomads, short and long term, this upbeat area of Bali has become a hot spot for yoga too with studios that cater to all levels and styles of yoga.
This Canggu yoga guide breaks down where you can find yoga classes in Canggu, at what studios, where you can stay to practice yoga, and the best yoga retreats in Canggu for a vacation or even for a mini-break if you’re living in Bali.
Whether you’re new to yoga or are a long-time lover, yoga is certainly one of the top things to do in Canggu.
Yoga Studios in Canggu
No matter what yoga style you love to practice or want to try, there’s a Canggu yoga studio that offers what you want.
At Odyssey MVMT you can expect yoga classes that are best described as heart-centred vinyasa flows that are catered to the modern yogi. Flow it out to music in one of the 3 different levels of vinyasa yang classes are that typically strong and will more than likely challenge you. But for those days that you don’t feel like sweating it out quite so intensely, yin classes are offered here too.
The studio itself overlooks a welcoming pool that you’re free to dive into after a sweaty morning or afternoon class and whoever you practice with here, you’re in for a treat, because Odyssey does a great job at hand-picking incredibly talented teachers. The studio also offers fitness classes as they believe that yoga and fitness go hand-in-hand and both complement each other.
I won’t lie, I’m being biased and am listing Odyssey MVMT first on this list as it’s where I regularly practice yoga in Canggu and where I did my yoga teacher training.
The Practice is perhaps the most famous yoga studio in Canggu and is a fabulous place to unwind and deeply connect to your practice. Just off of the hustle and bustle of Batu Bolong, The Practice offers students a quiet and serene environment in a beautiful bamboo studio.
The Practice teaches traditional tantric Hatha classes, workshops, teacher training, and events. The studio and the co-founders pride themselves on delivering exceptional classes that have no gimmicks, keeping as close to yoga’s roots as possible.
If there’s a style of yoga that you’ve been wanting to try, there’s a very good chance that Serenity offers it. Serenity has an incredibly diverse yoga schedule with a number of yoga styles and a large team of experienced teachers that will lead you through classes such as Hatha, yin, aerial, vinyasa flow, restorative, Ashtanga, power, core, chakra flow…there’s little that Serenity doesn’t offer.
Located just a minute’s walk from the beach, you clearly have an abundance of options to choose from for yoga styles and can flow it out in one of the open-air studios with the ocean breeze just off in the distance.
See Serenity’s schedule.
Desa Seni offers quite a few yoga styles as well that include Hatha, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and vinyasa flow yoga. But what sparks interest here are the classes that go deeper. While there are yoga classes available to all levels, Desa Seni also has what they call a master class which goes deeper into yoga and beyond just the physical practice, sharing more about yoga philosophy and the 8 limbs of yoga.
See Desa Seni schedule.
Samadi Bali is the top place to practice yoga in Canggu if you’re looking for Ashtanga classes. This serene studio is a heavenly paradise that is a “community hub for health-freaks and conscious-living addicts.” Far from just Ashtanga yoga classes, Samadi Bali invites guests in for ecstatic dance, moon rituals, women’s circles, workshops, and more.
Canggu Studio is a top choice if you are looking for more than just yoga. With over 30 different types of classes, getting a pass here means that you’ll be able to sweat it out dancing, boxing, doing aerobics, barre, and of course yoga.
There are multiple styles of dance available including Beyonce, dancehall, high heels, jazz and more. The focus for yoga here is power but for more mindful practices breathwork and emotional freedom classes are on the schedule too.

Accommodation & Yoga in Canggu
These options are great if you want to stay on the location of a yoga studio without needing to book a retreat.
Serenity Eco Guesthouse
Perhaps the most popular choice for yoga and accommodation in Canggu, Serenity Eco Guesthouse is a top choice not only for its location but also its amenities, price, and number of yoga classes and styles available on-site.
There’s really not much need to leave the property, except for maybe the beach which is 150 metres away. The guesthouse is in the heart of Canggu so you’re close to all of the highlights but on-site you can enjoy the pool, massages, and the Alkaline restaurant which serves vegan meals.
Despite being in the middle of Canggu, you’ll feel like you’re in a peaceful oasis, walking through gardens on your way to your room. Both private and shared accommodation is available here, making it affordable for all budgets.
Matra Bali Guesthouse
Just a 5-minute drive from Berawa Beach, Matra Bali Guesthouse is set in the heart of Berawa (my personal favourite part of Canggu) where you will find an abundance of cafes and shopping. The accommodation itself is simple but offers private patio and garden views for a truly relaxing way to wake up in the morning. The yoga studio to practice is just minutes away and there is also a restaurant on-site.
Udara Bali Yoga Detox & Spa
If you’re looking to truly get away from it all and to immerse yourself into a few days of peace, quiet, and relaxation then look no further. Udara is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Canggu’s busy streets and is set right on the beach where the only people you’ll see are really those from the resort.
Unlike any other accommodation in Canggu, Udara has created what feels like another world in their creative spa that includes a sauna, hot and cold pools, a meditation cave, and much, much more.
On top of the spa amenities, Udara offers complimentary yoga in their open-air studios that include aerial yoga that overlooks the ocean. There’s simply nowhere else in Canggu with a view like it for yoga.
Dreamsea Canggu is, as the name suggests, dreamy. The accommodation is decorated in boho style that’s light and airy and will make you feel like you’re on the vacation of your dreams. This Canggu yoga accommodation is a surf camp but yoga classes are offered at the on-site fitness studio too.
