Yoga • Dance • Music
BaliSpirit Festival is a vibrant and uplifting festival of yoga, dance, and music which awakens and nourishes each individual's potential for positive change within, leading to positive change in our homes, in our communities, and around the world. Set in the spectacular grounds of the Purnati Center for the Arts in Batuan, just 10 minutes south of Ubud, the daytime workshops and Dharma Fair enjoy a venue unmatched for its tropical beauty and gentle energy.
The global music concerts take place in Ubud, at the Agung Rai Museum of Art's (ARMA) outdoor stage, to allow easy access for visitors and locals. This unique series of concerts features and knits together the distinctive traditional rhythms of Africa, Indonesia and Australia with the contemporary music of the rest of the world. Now in its 7th year, the Festival brings together 100s of celebrated musicians, yogis and dancers from every continent and also become a magnet for fans, students and followers of every calling. Weeks before the Festival, Ubud begins to fill with a colorful international tribe of young people gathering in anticipation of one of the world's most inspiring events.
Driven by Meghan Pappenheim, the proceeds from the Festival fund the Ayo! Kita Bicara HIV/AIDS awareness project. This project aims to educate Balinese teens about the danger of HIV/AIDS in their community through interactive Edu-spirit workshops in local high schools.
