Become a Yoga Expert in Bali
Zen out on a Shakti Spirit Yoga Retreat (shaktispirit.com) in the trendy town of Ubud. Daily classes are held at a local studio and if you attend 200 hours of training, you qualify as an instructor. So not only do you perfect your poses (no more slipping a disc while doing the downward dog), but you can earn a few extra dizzers when you get home. And when you’re not in headstand mode, hire a bike and whizz around Ubud, visit the nearby Monkey Sanctuary or just chill in one of the many cute cafes. The VIVA ladies love Amandari Restaurant +62 (0) 361 975 333.
