ABOUT BALI

Island

Bali is a beautiful island in the Asia-Pacific.  Known as “The Island of the Gods,” Bali offers vast contrasts from seemingly endless stretches of coastline along its beaches to its lush green rice fields to its numerous majestic temples.

Climate

Bali is approximately 8 degrees south of the equator. So you can expect a tropical, warm and humid climate all year around with two main distinctive seasons: Dry Season and Rainy Season. Its tropical climate creates an environment with temperatures that do not fluctuate much from one month to the next.

There are generally two monsoon seasons: A dry one (May to September) and a wet one (October to April). Monsoon refers to the wind, not the rain. However, even in the wet monsoon season, it is likely it will be sunny for a great part of the day.

The best times to visit Bali are the months of April, May and June because it’s still dry season and it’s slightly less humid during these months.

Cuisine

Indonesian cuisine is perfect for our raw vegans, vegans and vegetarians alike. It is one of the most vibrant and colorful cuisines in the world, bursting with intense flavor. The cuisine is diverse, owing in large part to Indonesia’s composition of approximately 6,000 islands, populated with over 300 ethnic groups, and includes rice, noodle and soup dishes.

Swadhyaya Yoga School provides vegetarian, vegan and raw vegan options at The Ark, including vegetable juices and smoothies. If you have food allergies, please let our wonderful staff know and they can help you. Even more reason to join us for your teacher training course.
