Lessons from my first week of yoga, healing & self care in Ubud, Bali. Timestamps below.
I almost wasn't going to share this bc it's so long, but I thought the lessons & insights into my week could help some of you, so I'm posting it on this vlog channel! My vlog channel is where I post a more casual, less edited version of my life & thoughts :)

- this is an online version of breathwork meditation that you can do at home! I've done it since coming back from Bali & loving it so much.
BTW someone asked "why is it so trendy to go to Bali to figure out your life" and I wanted to share my answer on why it is:
The trend is due to instagram (visibility of bali) and it also goes back to when Elizabeth Gilbert went there in her book Eat Pray Love! But bali truly is a place to go to heal and it's great for many reasons:
- it's known as a spiritual place (especially Ubud, the spiritual/cultural center of Bali)
- yoga is HUGE & everywhere. most balinese are hindu so they are heavily influenced by that.
- alternative healing modalities are common - breathwork, reiki, ayurveda, energy healing type stuff are everywhere
- an abundance of healthy, organic vegan food - fresh pressed juices & vegan meals offered everywhere
- it's inexpensive
- it's beautiful with so much nature - waterfalls, jungles, beaches, rice fields galore
Other places that are similar to this I've heard are Thailand and Costa Rica.
:) hope that explains why bali is so popular!
