BaliSpirit Festival, South-East Asia’s biggest and longest annual yoga, dance and music non-profit event, has announced the dates for its 11th edition.
Taking place 2 – 8 April 2018, the next BaliSpirit festival will take place at Bhanunswai Resort in Ubud, Bali, and will feature a new format: six days of full programming including yoga, dance, meditation and breathing workshops and seven nights of music concerts.
Ubud is a small town with plenty to see and do. With the plethora of yoga and healing centres, temples, vegetarian and vegan restaurants, and breathtaking scenery, Ubud has become Bali’s cultural hub. What makes BaliSpirit Festival unique is the diverse West meets East cultural fusion across the festival programming and venue.
A large number of world-class yoga teachers, healers, breathwork and movement facilitators from all over the globe will share their knowledge and practice in over 200 workshops in yoga, healing, personal development seminars, music and dance throughout the week while music line-up will feature established conscious-festival headliners, authentic world music masters, and up-and-coming underground artists.
Over the last 10 years, BaliSpirit Festival has continued to grow and now attracts approximately 700 people from over 5o countries who have described their experience as ‘life-changing’, ‘uplifting’ and ‘inspirational’.
The feeling of community and practice of karma yoga is strongly felt and more than $USD100,000 has been raised for the festival’s annual outreach programs and partner charities – which includes environmental conservation, multi-cultural and performing arts education, healthcare and HIV & AIDS awareness – attendees enhance their spiritual transformation by giving back to Bali and Balinese community.
BaliSpirit Festival’s three year-round outreach programs are AYO! Kita Bicara HIV & AIDS (HIV & AIDS awareness and education program for schools in Indonesia) Bali Conference (A music and arts education and community program) and Bali ReGreen (A bamboo reforestation program in impoverished areas in Bali).
