Bali is synonymous with lush rice terraces, dramatic volcanoes and an artistic vibe. The Island of the Gods to this day retains its unique Hindu culture and traditions. The perfect backdrop to an unforgettable yoga swim experience.
The island is a haven for sea adventurers. The north-eastern corner of Bali is a surf-free zone and an excellent open water swimming site, featuring vibrant marine life atop a black sandy bottom which makes for awesome visibility.
For this YogaSwim experience we are based in the fishing village of Amed which sits underneath the volcanic peak of Mount Agung - Bali’s highest and most spiritually significant site. It is framed by the roofs of our Shalas where we perform our daily yoga practice at the start and end of each swimming day. Its high imposing slopes are also clearly visible as we swim along the varied coastline throughout our trip. The reefs, with their rich marine life, start right from the shore, so the swimming is always interesting and varied.
Who is this trip for?
This trip is designed for swimmers who enjoy yoga, or who want to explore the benefits of yoga and how it naturally complements and enhances our swimming. We swim twice per day along the idyllic coast. Swims are shorter than an average SwimTrek Trip. So, if you prefer to cover more kilometres per day then you may like to take a look at our: Bali Escape.
Swimmers do not require open water experience but should be capable of completing the average swim distance of 1½ km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 3km (split over a minimum of two swims). No prior experience of yoga is required. We have given this trip a ‘Leisurely’ grading designed for people who want to swim at a more relaxed pace and enjoy the scenery.

Why yoga and swimming?
Yoga and swimming are a perfect combination. For swimmers, yoga offers both physical and mental benefits. Yoga increases breathing awareness, develops strength and increases mobility, especially if you can work yoga into your daily routine. Through meditation, relaxation and stretching, yoga has incredible restorative qualities, relaxing the nervous system and muscular tension. It can help you centre and focus, and to find the perfect rhythm for your swims.
