5 Reasons to Get to Bali for BaliSpirit

Bali If I thought a little, I bet I could find dozens of reasons.  It’s a world wide yoga and song festival with great workshop presenters and top notch musicians.  There’s nothing not to like in Bali.  But, since my time is short, I be brief.

Here then are some of the top incentives to travel to Bali for this year’s BaliSpirit Festival in March.

1.  World class yoga teachers

Coming from Greece, Germany, Thailand, Indonesia, Jamaica, Japan, the UK and elsewhere.  Yoga styles taught will include any type that you can think of.  Anusara, Acro, Vinyasa Flow and much more. It doesn’t matter if you’re showing up for a steady stream of your favorites or if your tastes run more towards a buffet, you’ll find more than you know what to do with.

2.  Magic is in the Air in Bali

Unless you’ve already traveled to Bali, it’s almost impossible to describe the island.  The green rice fields, the warmth of the Balinese and the culturally rich tradition all add up this being the place where the miraculous meets with serendipity.

3.  Life Changing Experiences

Anyone that’s been to the festival has a story.  Ask someone to share and you’ll hear people telling of giant steps of faith and serendipitous moments.  Some never go home.  Others make the trip to Bali to stay in touch with friends met years earlier.  Regardless, you’ll find that shared experiences linger long after the festival is over.

4.  Some You’ll Meet are Locals

Many who participate come from Bali or somewhere in Indonesia.  The amazing volunteers gain tremendous  experience putting on a world-class event.  The revenue created by the festival funds outreach work such as reforesting the eastern edge of the island with Bamboo.  The funds also support children’s programming and education about HIV and AIDS in communities on the island.

5.  Don’t Forget the Music

Unlike most music festivals, the BaliSpirit highlights both well known and up-and-coming artists.  The BaliSpirit focuses on music that feeds the soul.

Visit Bali for the festival and you will add your own favorites to the list!
