BALI SPIRIT FESTIVAL 2016: Vibrant Celebration of Yoga, Dance & Music

Text & Photos: Veronika K.
The tranquil mountain town of Ubud was again transformed for the 9th time into a stage for beneficial and inspirational traditions of yoga, dance and music. At the new daytime venue at Bhanuswari Resort, you could practice not only your downward facing dogs with some of the best instructors in the world, but also participate in a multitude of inspirational workshops and shop for the latest trends in yoga gear at Dharma Fair – festival’s fun space. ARMA museum hosted the “One World, One Stage” night time concerts, where punters could dance their proverbial yoga shoes off to the sounds of international musicians and bands. There was a high vibrational energy charged and packed with positive vibes all round and the BSF 2016 was once again a huge success! Bows all round for the organisers once more.
