Mornings begin with tea on the terrace overlooking palm trees and rice paddies, followed by a walk along the rice paddies, watching the ducks and geese, and then to Ann's yoga studio. An hour and a half of yoga every morning helps your body get strong and flexible! After yoga, indulge in a scrumptious breakfast on the terrace, followed by the day's excursion. Ann has picked the "best of" for her tour - incredible temples, beautiful walks, visits to artisan craft shops and villages - all in the care of Ann's personable Balinese driver.

Ann recommends the best of the lunch spots while out and about. The food and the settings are beautiful!

After an afternoon dip in the pool, attend an afternoon restorative yoga class with another hour and a half to stretch, strengthen, and meditate under Ann's guidance. All former tour participants say that they felt incredible physical gains in strength and flexibility over the course of two weeks. Most also say that they felt relaxed and peaceful and spiritually grounded.

Evenings include the most incredible dinners! The food is so delicious! Ann steers participants to the best restaurants with delicious Indonesian and Balinese food in beautiful garden settings. A few of the nights include Balinese dance and music performances.

Ann also speaks Indonesian and offers a few language classes during the first few days at Sanur beach village. During these first relaxing days, there are daily yoga classes as well as cultural orientation sessions. 8 inspiring days/nights will be spent in Ubud, the cultural center of Bali, with morning yoga classes, followed by sumptuous, healthy breakfasts, which is then followed by half-day excursions to visit Balinese artisans at work: painters, wood carvers, stone carvers, mask makers, etc.

Ann Barros

Ann Barros is a senior Iyengar yoga instructor with over 30 years teaching experience, including 5 years at UCSC, where she introduced the Iyengar tradition to the Santa Cruz, California community. She has led over 60 successful Yoga In Bali tours. She has led workshops both domestically in California and Colorado, and internationally in Singapore, Jamaica, Greece, Mexico, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and China, as well as her beloved Bali, which has become her second home and remains where her heart is always. Ann first studied with BKS Iyengar in India in 1976 who personally guided her into curing her own scoliosis. She is certified by the Iyengar Yoga Institute of S.F. since 1980, and later that year after studying again in India, first came to Bali.

After 30 years of teaching, Ann's eyes are well trained. She works currently with chiropractors in the US. The chiropractic patients work individually with Ann during their stabilization phase of recovery from surgery or injury. Ann has many case histories of helping people - help themselves - toward pain-free living and avoidance of surgery in some cases. Ann's teaching approach is compassionate, yet challenging, with emphasis on precise and careful alignment of the joints for the greatest freedom: strength and flexibility, balance in the body, quieting of the mind, and a soaring of the spirit. Her strong dance background and B.A. in dance from U.C.S.C. combined with her love of art, music, yoga and Hinduism has culminated in her creating a wonderfully balanced lifestyle and tour program. Those who participate in her special Bali yoga tours and recent Asia programs develop a solid foundation and understanding of the poses. Ann gratefully acknowledges her teacher, Shri BKS Iyengar. Ann has led successful Yoga in Bali tours continuously since 1985. As of 2006, she now operates her own studio in the Iyengar tradition in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia; and offers teacher training programs and workshops.

    " Ann's program is amazingly well structured. It allows you to get into the practice progressively and also into Bali too. You get to know the beach part of Bali as well as the inland part, getting the chance to know many different important places and Temples which make the trip enchanting. The practice was outstanding and extremely professional in the way Ann led it and corrected each of us. The places we stayed at, were absolutely great, as well as the personnel and the breakfasts! Ann has developed a very polished and perfected product! "

    " I liked the yoga classes better than any I have ever taken. I love how Ann explains each pose - how it benefits the body and what parts of our physiology are involved. Ann is very patient in working with students exactly where they are at. "

    " I have been studying yoga for over 10 years and I have never met a yoga instructor as good as Ann. In her 2-week Bali retreat, through her yoga training, I was able to significantly improve a hip issue that doctors could not. Ann is amazing as a yoga instructor and as a person! Loved her! "
