Hello Yogis, Yoginis and Friends of The Yoga Barn,

You may have heard that Mount Agung - a volcano in the East of Bali - erupted on November 26, sending ash and steam up to 3000 meters in the atmosphere. Bali's airport is temporarily closed and flying conditions will be re-evaluated every 6 hours. If you want to keep up with latest news and developments, you can refer to this article. As of the writing of this email, Ubud is still unaffected and The Yoga Barn is operating with usual hours.

Renovations are now complete!
We are excited to share that renovations of the Garden Kafe and upper studios are now complete. Studio Wayan and Studio Made now both face south and have bigger capacity for classes and workshops.

Bali ReGreen is a charity program that has been working since 2011 to help some of the poorest and driest areas in Bali to create a sustainable cash crop of bamboo that not only is good for the environment but also creates economic opportunities for local villagers in the area of Desa Songan in East Bali, close to Mount Agung. Because of its connection to this area, Bali ReGreen is also helping with providing supplies to evacuees of the danger zone around the volcano. You can learn more about Bali ReGreen's efforts and achievements here.
