The practice of yoga and the art of surfing go perfectly together. The strength, balance, control and flexibility you develop in each enhance your performance in the other. Besides these mutual physical benefits, surfing and yoga both have ancient history with spiritual connections that still survive to this day.
For these reasons and others, many surfers practice yoga. They use it to improve their physical fitness in the ways listed above, as well as better their concentration, motor skills and conditioning. It is also a great way to relax both physically and mentally after a demanding session on the waves. From pro surfers to those who just enjoy the occasional day out at the beach, the reasons why you should do yoga are many.

About Padang Padang
Rapturecamps Padang Padang location is owned and operated by people who love surfing and sharing the magic of this amazing island. This Yoga Surfcamp Bali provides an intimate resort experience within a traditional Balinese atmosphere.
Situated on the Bukit Peninsula just 3km (2 miles) north of the temple at Uluwatu is Padang Padang, aka the “Balinese Pipeline”. Accessible by a stepped path from the main road, Padang Padang is actually two breaks — the famous left break and the gentler beach break, perfect for learning to surf, longboarding and practicing technique.
The idyllic 120-metre white sand beach at Padang Padang is as famous for its beauty — romantic scenes for the Julia Roberts movie “Eat, Pray, Love” were shot there — as it is for its waves. 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 holidaymakers. Since the surf break is offshore, bathers can swim the shallows or sit on the beach and watch the world famous 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 Bali Cliff
Our Yoga Surfcamp Bali Cliff location is just 80 metres behind the somewhat secluded surf break of Green Bowl (aka Green Ball, Green Balls or Greenbowls) midway point on the south coast of the legendary Bukit Peninsula. Surfable almost all year long, this spot is named for its bowl-shaped ocean floor, which during low tide, reflects the surrounding greenery of the hills. Also on the Bukit Peninsula, Bali Cliff is close to several of the island’s best surf spots, such as Padang Padang, Uluwatu, Bingin, Balangan, Impossibles, Dreamland, Nusa Dua and Gunung Payung.
Accessible via a stepped path leading down from the cliff, Green Bowl is an unspoiled beach, nestled amongst caves and surrounded by steep, green hills. Small crowds, coupled with fast and hollow waves, make this spot a hidden gem.
Yoga Surf Camp Bali Cliff is a laid-back, fun and friendly resort and surf school run by surfers who love the lifestyle and sharing it with others.
