Yoga Surfcamp in Bali: practice yoga and surfing together
31 October 2018
The practice of yoga and the art of surfing go perfectly together. They compliment one another in terms of physical fitness in areas like balance, flexibility, strength and control. They also have many other aspects in common, such as ancient origins and a strong spiritual aspect. That’s why we offer both at Rapture Yoga Surfcamp Bali.
Many surfers practice yoga to improve their physical fitness, as well as their concentration, motor skills, and conditioning. It is also a great way to relax both physically and mentally after a demanding surf session.
Yoga and Surf: Enjoy the best of both worlds in Bali
Located in Padang Padang and Green Bowl, our surfcamps in Bali provide free daily yoga classes for all guests. Our yoga instructors are all fully certified and well experienced. They are experienced in teaching poses most useful for surfing and stretching all those sore muscles. Imagine enjoying a healthy breakfast and then taking part in yoga session on a tropical beach. It is simultaneously relaxing and invigorating — the perfect way to start a day of surfing Bali’s world-famous waves!
About our yoga surfcamp in Padang Padang
Yoga Surf Camp Padang Padang is owned and operated by people who love surfing, yoga, food and sharing the magic of this amazing island. It provides an intimate resort experience within a traditional Balinese atmosphere.
Where is the camp located in Bali
Situated on the Bukit Peninsula just 3km (2 miles) north of the temple at Uluwatu is Padang Padang, aka the “Balinese Pipeline”. Accessible by steps from the main road, Padang Padang has two breaks — the famous left break and the gentler right. The gentler break is perfect for learning to surf, longboarding and practicing technique.
The idyllic 120-metre white sand beach at Padang-Padang is as famous for both its beauty and its waves. Julia Roberts even shot romantic scenes for the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” there! A great place to do yoga, incredible for surfing and unbeatable for relaxing in a beautiful, tropical setting, Padang Padang suits pro surfers, beginners and family vacationers.
Since the surf break is offshore, bathers can swim the shallows or sit on the beach and watch all the surf action Padang Padang is famous for. Close to Padang Padang you’ll find other stellar surf spots including Bingin, Uluwatu, Balangan, Impossibles and Dreamland.

About our Yoga surfcamp in Green Bowl

No crowds, coupled with fast and hollow waves, make this spot a hidden gem. Yoga Surfcamp Bali Green Bowl is a laid-back, fun and friendly resort. Our surf school is run by surfers who love the lifestyle and sharing the stoke with others.
Where is the camp located
Our Camp in Green Bowl is located just 80 meters behind the secluded surf break of Green Bowl (aka Green Ball, Green Balls or Greenbowls), which is the midway point on the south coast of the legendary Bukit Peninsula. Green Bowl is surfable almost all year long. The ocean floor is bowl-shaped, which during low tide, reflects the surrounding greenery of the hills. Green Bowl is close to several of the island’s other best surf spots, such as Padang Padang, Uluwatu, Bingin, Balangan, Impossibles, Dreamland, Nusa Dua and Gunung Payung.
