Bali instantly brings to mind happy thoughts: the sun, the sea, the friendly folk, the exotic feeling, the highly spiritual Balinese culture are all part of a positive vibe that is crowned by a yogi culture that has developed a lot and has turned the area of Ubud to a yogi Mecca during the past decade, just like Canggu is the hipster mecca and meltingpolt for surf camps in Canggu. The closeness to nature, the relaxed atmosphere and the warmth of the sun serve as an ideal background to a yoga session. But let us introduce you to some of the best Yoga Studios you can find in Ubud, so you don’t get lost in the abundance of choices.
In the heart of Ubud, you will find the yoga studio Radiantly Alive. With the motto “come for yoga, stay for family” Radiantly Alive lays down its mentality quite clearly. Family accepts you as you are, and this is what Radiantly Alive represents: “an environment where you can truly be yourself, be vulnerable, learn, stumble and get up again”, as they put it. With 3 studios and a big range of practices, you will surely find what you are looking for. And note that they also offer Teacher training, workshops with international guests and Healing Sessions, like Reiki, Craniosacral, Pranic Acupuncture and more!

Another full-service yoga studio and holistic healing retreat center in the center of Ubud is The Yoga Barn. Founded in 2007 with the aim to give back to the island of Bali it offers something for everyone, from beginners to experienced practitioners. You will find classes every day from 7 am to 9 pm and you can attend workshops, meditation and dance classes, ecstatic dance sessions as well as alternative healing sessions. The Yoga Barn offers accommodation for your better convenience and prepares yourself for delicious vegan, raw and ayurvedic meals at the Garden Kafe.

A recent addition to the yoga community in Ubud, Chakra Yoga Shala, is run by Balinese people and has Balinese teachers. If you want a break from overcrowded sessions, then this is definitely the option for you. You will practice in small groups and get the attention and advice you need, not to mention the amazing view to a beautiful rice field. And after your session, don’t miss a super delicious meal at the Oasis Yoga & Cafe downstairs.

“Taksu” is Balinese for “the indescribable essence of Spirit.” At Taksu Yoga, surrounded by teachers that live and breathe yoga, you will find yourself in a very spiritual environment, not easy to describe with words. You can take classes, attend yoga and wellness workshops and indulge into a bit of care at Taksu Yoga’s spa. Note that Taksu Yoga offers Teacher Training and you can eat healthy, mouthwatering meals at the Taman Taksu Garden Cafe.

Travelling is exciting - new experiences open up new horizons and sometimes make such an impact that entirely changes the way the traveller thinks about the world. It can be the best way to eliminate “prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness” as Mark Twain put it. But there is a catch!
Have you ever thought about the carbon footprint you leave behind when you travel?
Jumbo Mountain has a story, a tale to tell. Somewhat unknown to us in Europe, but for the locals of Jumbo glacier and those living in the area, the question of this "resort" no matter what side you are on, is everything. The development plans for this resort for some mean innovation, jobs and expansion and for other it means the destruction of the environment and native land. Thrillism wants to bring the story from both sides to you.
If you spend any time it the backcountry, anywhere in the world, skiing, hiking, climbing etc then you need to read this article.
That's why we wanted to touch base (pun intended) with the incredible folks at Air Zermatt, where their unmissable red helicopters are flown over our favourite mountain with a knowing and watchful eye, leading us to a massive amount of curiosity about the work they do and how meaningful it is to all of us who are passionate about the mountains.
