Welcome to Yoga in Bali!
Yoga is a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of your body, mind, and feelings in the present moment. The combination of these two is thought to lead one to a sense of peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment.
This retreat combines the practice of yoga with group life coaching and the rich tradition of spirituality that is steeped within Balinese culture.
Enjoy the tranquility of a countryside village from our villas located on the outskirts of Ubud, a town known as Bali’s cultural heart. Wander among ancient temples gaining an understanding of religion’s importance to everyday local life.

Bali's tropical monsoon climate has two distinct seasons: dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April).
You will be traveling on the shoulder of rainy season. We expect most days to be sunny, but the more prepared you are for your trip the better.

Dress conservatively when walking around local neighborhoods and markets.
The index finger is not used to point at things or people as it’s considered rude. Balinese people use their palms or thumbs.
When entering homes or temples (sometimes even hotel rooms), leave your footwear outside the premises. Homes and temples are sacred and wearing footwear, are considered dirty, and means disrespecting these sacred places.
Balinese prefer to eat their meals in silence as a sign of respect to the nourishment that the meal is giving them. Do not be offended if a Balinese person sits away from you during a meal.
Be mindful of where you walk as every morning Balinese people leaves offerings on the sidewalks outside of homes and businesses. These offerings consist of palm leaves with flowers and herbs. It is considered rude and offensive if you happen to step on one.
The head is the most sacred part of the body and it is believed the soul lives in the head. Avoid touching another person’s head or places your hands or any objects over the head.

While your trip leader will assist you with optional activities available, please note that any optional activities you undertake are not part of the Under30Experiences itinerary. We offer no guarantees on the safety or standard of the activity.
Respect the people around you and the environment in which you’re traveling. This includes, but is not limited to fellow travelers, trip leaders, the local community, nature, wildlife, and yourself.
Do your best to keep yourself and fellow travelers out of harm’s way.
It’s important to obey local laws and customs while on our trips. This includes, but is not limited to wearing appropriate clothing while visiting certain communities, refraining from taking photos of people without asking, avoiding the use of illegal drugs, having weapons, and soliciting prostitution. If you’re not sure about something, take time to educate yourself, or ask.
Travel involves contact with new cultures. When confronted with a different way of living than you’re used to, do your best to understand that neither way is better or worse. They’re simply different ways of life.
Know your limits! This applies to physical ability, emotional space, social situations, and alcohol consumption. If you can’t participate in something, be upfront about it. If you need a break from people, take it. Stop drinking before you get too drunk.
Trip leaders are working in the travelers’ best interest. If they say something or ask you not to do something it’s not because they’re tyrants, but because they want you to have a good time!
Lying or withholding information about any physical or mental condition that might affect your ability to participate in any of the activities may be grounds for removal from your trip with no refund.

U30X is such an amazing travel community. Once your trip is over, the experience is not. They keep in touch with their alumni & provide platforms for travel questions, personal development, & community connections in your own backyard! If you're a young person looking to travel I highly recommend U30X!
There are not enough ways for me to describe how amazing this company is. After my first trip I always told people, it wasn't about the location, but the experience that u30x gave me. I have some of the best experiences of my life with u30x, and now a passion for travel. Also, their alumni community and groups are awesome too!
Traveling with U30X has been life changing for me. I've made lifelong friends with both travelers and staff. I can't come up with enough good things to say about the company, the people, and the experiences I've had!
Just returned from my second trip with Under30Experiences. My first trip was to the Costa Rica rainforest. My most recent trip was to Iceland. Both trips were such an amazing experience. I loved learning about Iceland and its origins. I enjoy the small groups and I made some great new friends! Recommend them for anyone wanting to travel alone or with a couple of friends.
I was so scared to travel abroad alone and then I came across their website and they made international travel so easy! And the people I’ve met on the trips are some amazing individuals! I’ve done 6 of their trips and plan on continuing to do even more!!
My Hike the Inca Trail trip was beyond amazing, and I couldn't have asked for anything more from a trip. Our leaders made us all feel instantly comfortable, and the group was fantastic. The trip was well planned and the hike was unforgettable. Memories to last a lifetime.
