The world of yoga is growing and there are so many opportunities to grow your practice, to delve in deep and immerse yourself in yoga asana, philosophy, meditation and more. How do you even decide? I put together this short list of places worth checking out with three words that describe the facilities/atmosphere/etc… some are retreat centers, some are studios, some are retreat centers that offer drop-in classes. Many of the yoga centers below also offer detox and wellness practices. Now is the time to be the best version of you. Take a look.
This list is by no means exhaustive…. although I did lean more toward exotic than conventional in my destinations. Enjoy!
Autumn founded Ambuja Yoga in 2014 to share her love of adventure, yoga, and travel with her fellow yogis. Ambuja Yoga has morphed into more than she could have ever dreamed and she is thrilled to have a "job" she loves. She is forever grateful for the opportunity to facilitate personal growth and self love through yoga while taking yogis to off-the-beaten-path destinations worldwide.

Congratulations! You’ve been accepted into your favorite teacher’s teacher training in Bali. Now what??? Time to start planning and packing for your trip to the tropics. Here is my packing list for my month long teacher training with Zuna Yoga at The Yoga Barn in tropical Ubud.
I may have overpacked compared to some of the other girls in the training, but I used everything I brought. And of all the things I packed I shared the tennis balls the most. Who doesn’t like a little self massage during lecture?
I packed thinking I would want to have enough clean clothes to last me until our first day off, which was about 10 days in. My husband and I were in Bali for nearly 7 weeks and did laundry about once per week. I didn’t always change my clothes after morning practice, but I would recommend packing enough that you have the option to change into clean clothes after a sweaty practice. The Yoga Barn has showers that you can use as well.
I had a hard time finding a good packing list when I was preparing for my trip to Bali, so I hope you find my YTT packing list helpful.
