Connect with what's alive in you, find the still-point at your center and stretch your mind. Yoga practice is about learning how to dance with the universe. To say your body is too tight to do yoga is the same thing as saying you are too dirty to take a bath.

Samadi Bali offers other yoga styles to suit a variety of levels and mindsets. Powerful holistic medicine, yoga descends from India and inspires people to stretch their minds by learning how to breathe, relax, and center through tight corners and uncomfortable situations.

A yoga class will leave you feeling energized and lighthearted; a weekly session will begin to work away chronic discomforts, such as low-back or neck pain, and a daily practice will transform your life and stretch you to embody the biggest version of who you want to be.

Ashtanga Mysore

Ashtanga yoga is really a breathing exercise in which you use the body to expand the mind. Ashtanga looks like physical exercise from the outside, but is really a spiritual experience on the inside. The Ashtanga method is based on the weaving of body-movements with breath-movements into a deepening flow of yoga poses.

A dynamic practice, Ashtanga yoga will stretch every corner of your body, invite you to strengthen your weak areas and inspire you to live with grace. Akin to a cooking process, the heat generated, the struggle endured and the peace cultivated combine together to reveal the flavor of your being.

Named after the birthplace of the Ashtanga system, Mysore in south India, this is the traditional method for learning, deepening, and perfecting your Ashtanga practice. A private class in a group setting means the teacher doesn't lead the whole group but holds the space for the practitioners, beginners, and advanced together, to learn and refine their own practice.

As a beginner, you will be taught one pose at a time in order to integrate the information, gradually learn the sequence and develop your personalized yoga practice. You are invited to repeat over and over until a sense of flow and poise is attained. Eventually, the teaching becomes more subtle, allowing the practice itself to be the real teacher. First timers and beginners are welcomed.


Double-up Vinyasa is a unique class and experience! Together, the teachers guide the students throughout the class, five to ten minutes each and then they change. This creates a playful and interesting atmosphere weaving the aspect of yin and yang into the class. By having two teachers, they can pay extra careful attention to the students and give lots of hands-on adjustments. There will be inspiring music and themes. The class is open to all levels.

Guided Ashtanga

Guided Ashtanga or the Ashtanga method explored trough themes and principles. All levels are welcome.

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is an integrated movement of body and breath to make calmness of mind. A softer approach to explore your inner landscape through yoga poses (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), and meditations. Ha-tha means the joining of two complementary energies: Soft, receptive, expanding, creative, feminine energy and grounded, focused, contracting, contemplative masculine principle. It is great for beginners.

Led Ashtanga

A way to get first acquainted with the Ashtanga sequence, the teacher directs the class and takes the time to explore the fundamentals of the method. Level 1 is for beginners and level 2 is for more intermediate students.


Vinyasa is a dynamic yoga class flowing from pose to pose by synchronizing body movements with breath movements. Explore new yoga poses into a gradual progression from easier to more advanced options. Get ready to move, breathe, sweat, and challenge yourself! The session is open to all levels.


Yin yoga is a slow-down approach to melt connective tissues and cultivate a meditative mind. All levels are welcome.

Yoga dance

Yoga dance combine yoga and dance to find your groove and free your feet. A levels are welcome.

Yoga for surfing

Whether you are beginner or advanced surfer, this fun class will help you open your shoulders, strengthen your core, and improve your balance. All levels are welcome.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra or the yogis sleep will guide you through deep stages of relaxation and awareness. All levels are welcome.


Experience tells people that a lot of common diseases and discomforts can be healed through natural medicines. Samadi Bali specializes in hands-on treatments to assist you in your healing process. They offer therapeutic bodywork, craniosacral therapy, and postural training. They also have at your disposal a sauna and a floating-tank to make your treatments even more potent and effective.

Practice advice

Practice with an empty stomach. Don't drink water during or just after practicing. If you have a specific condition, please inform Samadi Bali about it, but check with your doctor for any adverse side effects.

Come bathed and wear clean, light clothing suitable for indoor physical activity. Bring a towel with you if you sweat a lot. Avoid wearing jewelry and watches. Please avoid wearing perfume, creams, or oils.

Don't be afraid to sweat profusely. It is part of the cleansing and purifying process. The tradition even recommends rubbing the sweat back into your skin after practice rather than wiping it off.

Don't be afraid to feel tired and experience difficulties. Direct your attention on the breathing and don't aim for external perfection as you do the asanas (postures). Observe the movements of the mind without implication or judgment. Ask yourself how it feels and smile often.

Yoga practice is very similar to gardening. To grow well the human plant requires daily love and attention. Changes are so slow and subtle they are barely noticeable. A strong foundation in the internal principles (breathing, bandhas, and drishtis) are the roots that give strength and grace to the practice. Finally, when all the preparatory work is done, the gardener sits back and watches the plant grows on its own.

Treat your body as you would a friend, with respect and care. Do not push or force your body into any pain, it's okay to feel discomfort, but don't use yoga as an instrument of self torture. The breath is your safety net. If you cannot breathe freely, find or ask for a more suitable variation. Put on your adventurer cap, open your minds eye, and explore your inner landscape. Listen for the silence behind the experience.

    "The room is small, just like a square box but somehow little details make it feels luxurious. The choice of blanket, the painting in the bath room, and the swimming pool just steps away from your door. The restaurant is a bliss, I have never tasted vegetarian food that taste that good. And of course the yoga studio with lots of program will be a bonus if you are into yoga. It was a nice laid back place if you're not into big hotels, but more of a homey place to stay."

    "I stayed at Samadi for 10 days in one of their pool rooms. The setting is stunning, beautifully designed and laid out with a pool by my doorstep. Quiet and serene. I arrived late and Suvi was waiting for me and her gentle and welcoming approach was the perfect welcome to Samadi, she was always there for me and the other guests throughout my visit as well. Thanks Suvi! I went to Samadi to learn Mysore. I had been doing led Ashtanga classes and really wanted to experience Mysore. I was incredibly nervous to go to my first class - with all the usual jitters and worries that come along with doing something new. I needn't have been worried! From the moment I stepped into the Shala - Damien was there to support and guide me. He is an incredible man with so much insight and intuition. He has so much compassion and an understanding of what each person needs in his classes. He is incredible to watch as he makes subtle changes or sits down with someone to chat about what they are doing on and off he mat. He is funny and strong and appreciates each person being there to practice with him. I felt so empowered and inspired the whole time I was there and am so glad our lives crossed paths. I would highly recommend a one-on-one session with him - I didn't do one but will next time I come back! Damien and his partner have created and incredible space! Beyond the yoga mat - the restaurant, the Sunday market, the shop, the workers they have (all so nice!!!) I can't say anything wrong with this place. What a treat and a blessing to have been there for 10 days. Next time I will stay longer. Thank you to everyone at Samadi, esp. Also Damien's apprentices who guided me through my Mysore practice. The cleaning ladies, the restaurant workers! The incredible Yin classes I did too! I am rambling but it really is a special place. Thanks again everyone!"

    "I was meant to stay only three days at Samadi Bali but ended up coming back after staying in some other places for some nights because I was spoilt the moment I entered this place. "

    "A friend of mine recommended this place to me, because she had joined the Yoga classes during her stay in Canggu, but I booked a room for the first three nights of my stay in Bali, so I got the room experience as well. I arrived late at night and even though there was nobody around I felt at home straight away, I found a welcoming letter in my room, explaining everything I needed to know for the first night, and they had even provided a mobile phone in case I would have to talk to the person in charge or order some food."

    "On the one hand the rooms have a very modern and stylish furniture, but still it seems as so greatest care have been given that everything is as environmentally friendly as possible. The rooms are big enough and so are the bath rooms. You will find fresh filtered water in glass bottles every day."

    "There is a fridge, a kitchen sink and a cooker in the outside area as well as a table and some chairs. So if you like you can even prepare your own food. And there´s a very nice pool if you need to cool down or have a swim. The whole area is very well kept."

    "All the food and the drinks I had at the little cafe, which is open from 8 am to 3 pm, was just wonderful. The fruit salads and the pancakes made of rice flour were my favorites, but anything else I had was just as good. The reason why I came to Samadi Bali in the first place, was to be close to the Yoga shala, as I wanted to practice as much as I could during my stay. I attended many different Yoga classes and they were all very good: I attended Ashtanga Mysore practice, Asthanga led class, Vinyasa classes and Yin Yoga classes. You can feel that the teachers love what they do and they are all very dedicated and know what they do. All the staff was very friendly and always very much commited to help me with anything I would need. I would definitively come back to this wonderful and extremely relaxing place, should I ever come back to Canggu."

    "I recently discovered Samadi and I can’t recommend it enough. It has a large pavilion set up for yoga, surrounded by lush gardens that are private and quiet. "

    "I’ve found the Vinyasa classes with Ailise excellent. She corrects positions where necessary which has really improved my results and posture. Ailise also gives insight into the yoga theories present in each pose which I have not experienced with other teachers before and I think it brings an extra dimension to the classes. Every class is different from the last which keeps it fresh and interesting."

    "Samadi also has a great café for healthy delicious food. The Sunday organic markets are also terrific. Great fresh produce from local suppliers, herbs and spices, homemade breads, yoghurts and traditional jamu for sale. It’s something I’m now scheduling in for my weekly shopping!"

    "Once you were in the place, you wont get out. You're on your sanctuary area, the feeling when you are inside, and the surrounding. Either you join a yoga class, having a meal or two, or just spend nights on their room. A must visit place when you are in Canggu area."

    "Amazing yoga, facilities were good. Food for breakfast and lunch was great for vegetarians. Location was good for peace and quiet, but difficult to get dinner easily. You need to be able to drive a scooter, or be willing to wait for up to an hour for a taxi to go anywhere."

    "The class I attended here was really fantastic. The teacher pushed us all but also let us go at our own pace. Afterwards I stayed for lunch and the papaya and mango salad was delicious. They also have a pool out the back which is great for a swim after a 1.5 hour class! I would recommend this place to all yogis - beginner or experienced."

    "The restaurant at Samadi Bali plays an important role in the centre. After practising yoga, enjoying light, nutritious and good food is important. At Samadi Bali it is even more important as they are not many organic, tasty restaurants in the neighbourhood. And the food at Samadi Bali is local, some even from their own garden. A fine experience to recommend to all visiting the Canggu area.Visited July 2015"

    "I didn't try the food there but the yoga was amazing. I only had time left to do two classes by the time I found them and am gutted that I was so late to them. I had tried a few other studios and shalas but none of them had quite the same feel as here. They were real teachers rather than instructors and helped to find what was working and not working or me. All of the staff there were great from the front desk to the shala. I took my sister there who had struggled to find somewhere that suited her well around Seminyak and Canngu and she was also delighted to find it. I couldn't have asked for anything except more time to spend with them.Visited June 2015 "
