Some visitors to Bali might be surprised to find out that there are a variety of yoga studios in Ubud. Just off Jl. Ray in Ubud, tucked in behind the Bali Buda shop, is a quaint if not more relaxed and intimate yoga studio called Radiantly Alive.
Like the bigger yoga studio The Yoga Barn they also have a variety of yoga classes suiting different styles and strengths, There are half as many classes per day but there are some unique ones worth checking out. At a lower price point than TYB it’s hard to say no to testing out this studio as well.

Roll and release
Tibetan heart opening
Soft evening flow
I personally took:
Soft evening flow: A nice way to end you night/ begin your weekend. Don’t make plans after, just run a warm bath and go to bed early. 🙂
Arm balance: This class is a gem. If you’re looking to expand or even step your toe into the world of arm balances, this is the place for you. The teacher taught in a very safe and supportive fashion, pairing you up so there was always a spotter and never pushed you past your limit which is important.
Tibetan heart opening: An interesting class where you meaningfully connect with your fellow classmates and do a few exercises. Quite nice.
Roll and release: An active yoga class where you work maybe from top down on a ball to release you facia and muscle tension. Highly recommend after a long week of yoga. No pain no gain.
Arial yoga: I can’t stress this enough. You will fly and feel amazing. I had a smile plastered across my face the entire time I did this class. It’s not for everyone consult the studio if you are heavier or have an injury to be sure but hand down my favourite class in Ubud.
Vinyasa: A standard vinyasa class with nice and big classrooms/sizes. They sometimes provide towels for this class.
The second time I stayed in Ubud for a month I bought a 10 class pass at both yoga studios (Radiantly Alive and The Yoga Barn) and went back and fourth to both so I could pick and choose the classes best suited for me. It was convenient for me because I was staying in the middle of the two just off Jl. Raya and walked to both (sometimes in the same day). Consider this when booking your accommodation.
