The Bali Spirit Festival will Take Place in Ubud from 1st-5th of May

One of the world's leading yoga festivals will once again gather spiritual practitioners, musicians, and healers in Ubud. Tickets are already on sale, but the schedule has not been disclosed yet. It is only known that guests can expect dances, meditations, chants, and various handicraft workshops. So, according to the organizers, not only health-conscious enthusiasts but also those who have never practiced yoga before will be able to have a good time at the festival.

As in previous years, the BaliSpirit Festival will take place at the Yoga Barn and the Puri Padi Hotel. Among the masters and mentors already announced by the Bali Spirit Festival, there is, for example, Chokolako, a yoga teacher from Nigeria, who will lead a cacao ceremony and introduce guests to African dance. Or Fransie la Flow, a yoga teacher, flow artist, life and business coach, musician, and social activist, who hosts one of the best retreats in the world according to the Guardian.
The full schedule should be available by April 28th. But it won't be possible to sign up in advance for any workshops. Places in classes are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

In addition to obvious advice like sunscreen and insect repellent, guests should bring their own yoga mats and towels. Shower facilities and changing rooms will be available at the festival venue. Additionally, there will be access to a pool, so a swimsuit will also come in handy.

The BaliSpirit Festival positions itself as a family event, so children will also find activities to enjoy. The area for guests aged 2 to 12 will be open from May 2nd to May 5th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Entry will be by donation only. However, nanny services are not provided there.

The BaliSpirit Festival was founded in 2008 with the aim of bringing the global community together after the bombings in Bali in 2002 and 2005. Tourism on the island suffered greatly from the terrorist attacks, and Ketut Gunarta, Meghan Pappenheim, and Robert Weber joined forces to create an event that would help showcase the best of Balinese culture and remind people of humanity.
All three co-founders are still actively involved in the festival, and their initiatives now affect not only the participants of this spiritual celebration but also the wider community through charitable programs.
Since 2010, the BaliSpirit Festival, together with partner organizations in Bali, yoga teachers, and musicians from around the world, has raised over $200,000 annually for charity. The funds are directed towards children's programs, multicultural education and performances, medical clinics, and environmental protection.
The festival holds two educational programs annually: one focusing on HIV and AIDS awareness and prevention, and the other on reforestation efforts on the island of Bali.
One of the latest initiatives is the collection and distribution of essential kits to needy Balinese families. The idea emerged during the Covid-19 pandemic when over 90% of restaurants, shops, and hotels were closed, leaving thousands of local residents without any income.
Anyone can join this initiative, even without participating in the festival itself.
