Yoga

Zen yoga ranges from gentle movements, to increase stamina and suppleness, to more energetic practices, all of which harmonize the body, mind, and spirit connection through breathing, concentration, and exercise. Each session is a different experience that expands your body awareness and enhances the feeling of inner peace through gentle and strenuous yoga, silent and guided mediation, and pranayama.

Begin every day with sunrise yoga with Zen Resort's yoga masters. Classes can be tailored to suit individual needs, and can be taken privately, or as part of a group session, including yoga retreat groups, in their specially designed Avani yoga pavilion surrounded by tropical flora, on the Nirvanam tree tops terrace with rolling views across rice fields, vineyards, and on to the alluring Bali sea or in the ashram room and library.

Pranayama

Pranayama is the science of controlled, regulated, and effective breathing, thus purifying the physical body, and bringing inner peace to the mind and soul. At Zen, pranayama is a daily practice as part of yoga and meditation.
