Sanur Yoga Studios

Power of Now Oasis

On the property of the Mercure Resort, Jalan Mertasari, Sanur

The bamboo shala on the beach at Power of Now Oasis is a beautiful place to practice.

Style: Iyengar, Hatha Flow, Hatha, Restorative, Bali Yoga, Yin, Vinyasa, Meditation, and Yoga in Bahasa
Price: 120K IDR (8 USD) drop-in, multi-class packages available, discount for Indonesians and KITAS holders

Power of Now Oasis is set in a lush garden space just meters from Sanur’s white sandy beach. You can enjoy the sea breeze as you practice yoga upstairs in the open-air, eco-friendly bamboo studio. It’s nestled into a corner of the property of the Mercure Resort alongside the beach boardwalk.

It also has a cozy lounge space on the ground floor, with lots of books, information on yoga and fresh juices available.

They offer daily classes and hold several 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings throughout the year. They are also building a new shala, so they will soon have a dedicated training space.

We went to an Iyengar yoga class led by Lisa when we visited. It was a proper Iyengar class with clear instruction and lots of props, yet Lisa added a bit of humour and personality to the class, too. She also did a great job navigating the different levels of practice and English in the room!

We both really enjoyed it and can highly recommend her class if you have some experience in yoga.

With a beautiful space, an amazing location, and talented instructors, Power of Now Oasis must be the best place to practice yoga in Sanur!

SUP Yoga Bali

Contact for meeting location. Practice is somewhere on the sea.

Try out SUP yoga while in Sanur to truly immerse your practice in nature!

Style: SUP Yoga (Yoga on a Stand-up Paddle Board)
Price: 350K– 450K IDR (24–40 USD)

SUP Yoga Bali was created by a group of water-loving yogis who want to share their passion for the ocean and for yoga with others to bring people closer to their true nature and discover their inner joy.

Sanur beach is perfect for SUP yoga as there are rarely waves near the shore, and the waters are clear, warm, and shallow — allowing you to see the ocean life below.

Classes are usually held in the morning and you need to book ahead. Class isn’t held every day and timing of class depends on the tide. The easiest way to book a SUP yoga class is to contact them through Facebook.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t arrange a convenient time to practice with SUP Yoga Bali when we were in Sanur, so we’ll have to leave it for next time.

Yoga Umah Shakti Sanur

Jalan Danau Beratan Gg. XI No. 14 Sanur

Style: Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anti-Gravity, Beginners, Power, Pre-natal
Price: 75K IDR (5 USD) drop-in, multi-class packages available, discount for locals and KITAS holder

The Yoga Umah Shakti shala provides space for yoga and meditation classes, as well as asana, breathing, and healing workshops.

They have classes, led by an all-Balinese teaching staff, scheduled every day of the week. Check their Facebook page for the best place to find the current class schedule and workshop details.

They also offer healing sessions featuring breathing techniques, asana, meditation, focus on healthy food, and acupressure, acupuncture, and Balinese purification ceremonies.

We actually didn’t find out about Umah Shakti until we’d already left Bali, so didn’t get a chance to drop in. Let us know if you practice there and what you think!
