Samadi Bali is a well-respected wellness hub in Canggu features a yoga studio, holistic health centre, ayurvedic cafe, and supermarket.
While there are many reasons to visit Samadi, which include fun workshops and events, yoga remains the space’s key focus.. Samadi has four separate practice spaces, ranging from indoor studio to open air. Each of these spaces hosts a busy schedule of yoga classes and workshops in a range of styles, making it a great place to come and try something new. Keep in mind this is a popular studio, so classes tend to be busy, meaning having enough space or getting attention from the teachers is sometimes a challenge.
The weekly class schedule at Samadi includes a large array of yoga styles from Hatha, Ashtanga and Hot Yoga to Vinyasa and even Aerial Yoga. These classes are offered across an array of ability levels as well. Classes also extend beyond yoga into other area like meditation, tai chi, chakra balancing, capoeira dance, kirtan (a form of group song) and more.
Samadi is especially suited to those who want to improve their level of technical yoga ability - with a significant focus on form and following the correct technique. They even offer onsite teacher training from shorter 40 hour modules to in-depth 240 hour programs.
Whilst the yoga classes at Samadi are very popular, we should mention that some of the other facets of the centre like the food, accommodation and management have received some negative feedback. We recommend dropping in for a class and seeing for yourself if Samadi is the right fit for you.
BEST FOR: Wide range of classes
DRAWBACKS: Busy classes, short on space, inconsistent food
