Yoga and Tai Chi - Because Bali!

I admit, I am one of those women who read Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" and wanted to go to Bali to find my inner self, do some yoga, bike around rice fields, and flirt with dangerously gorgeous men. The reality, which I am not even ashamed to admit, is that I am a married mother of three, I can't even imagine sleeping in a hut without air-conditioning, and I enjoy the luxury hotel breakfast far more than a beach party hangover on the mornings. However, I am all over trying some yoga and tai chi while in Bali. There are several famous yoga retreats on the island, but since I am such a beginner, I still haven't gotten enough courage to actually go on a yoga retreat. Good for me, and everyone else who might be a yoga beginner, many hotels offer private yoga classes. When I stayed at the Westin Nusa Dua, they offered afternoon classes right off their Heavenly Spa. We tried yoga and tai chi, and came home with an inspiration to find local yoga classes. Maybe the next time I visit Bali, I will go to one of the famous yoga retreats in Ubud.
