Welcoming visitors from all over the world we can find our classes are very popular so arriving 30 minutes before class starts for class registration ensures you will secure your spot. We have limited class numbers and our reception respects the ‘first come, first served’ policy, plus aims to balance the larger community sized collective energy with overall guest comfort. Our night time events open 1 hour prior to class with Ecstatic Dance honoring a separate ticket sales process as it is always in high demand. See here for more information on Friday and Sunday dance ticket purchase.

Registration for Ecstatic Dance and Sunday Dance
Friday Ecstatic Dance: 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Sunday Dance: 11am - 12:30pm
Every Friday and Sunday at The Yoga Barn we host a community Dance. A space for our conscious community to connect and dance, to let loose and shake off anything that no longer serves them. Guided by eclectic DJ’s and live music the body and mind become absorbed in the beats of the music and free-form movement is used to release energetic blockages, increase body awareness, deepen the breath, de-stress and feel connected to yourself. And to have fun!
Both our Friday Ecstatic and Sunday Dances are very popular and always sell out. For each Dance there is a maximum capacity of 150 dancers so it is important to get your ticket in advance. Kindly note: begging, pleading, bribing, being nasty or unkind with our Dance Angels won’t get you anywhere…!
We have two options for you to join the Dance:
- Buy a 3-Class Dance Pass (secure your spot with no queuing required)
- Buy your Dance Pass on the day of the Dance (queue)
1. Buy a 3-Dance Pass
We offer an online registration system for our Friday Ecstatic and Sunday Dances with the purchase of a 3-Dance Pass. The pass can be purchased from our Upper Reception only. The quantity of available 3-Dance Passes is limited to 55 active passes; and once sold out, they are sold out.

What is an Ecstatic Dance?
Ecstatic Dance is a party. A bringing together of bodies from all over the world to dance, feel free and get out of their busy minds. The concept was born in the 2000's in Hawaii by founder Max Fathom, who was inspired by a concept called 'Body Choir', originally created in the 90`s in Texas and has been a popular event at The Yoga Barn for many years.
This style of Dance takes provides a feeling of freedom through physical expression, guided only by eclectic DJ's and live music. There are no judgements, no comparisons, and certainly no drugs, alcohol or talking. But there is certainly a lot of sweat.
General Guidelines for an Ecstatic Dance
- They are simple, yet very different from a regular party.
- No talking on the dance floor
- Please Dance barefoot – no shoes allowed
- Alcohol-free, free-form dance
- Dance to move yourself free and let go, not to impress
- Please respect the space of other Dancers. Please remember that everyone is attending for their own dancing journey – they may not appreciate contact dance.
- No cameras/phones policy – enjoy the moment
- Clothes are to be worn – no nakedness please

Yoga Barn Studio Guidelines & Etiquette
New to yoga or thinking about starting yoga? Etiquette is at the heart of a yoga practice and it is best to know this sooner rather than later to gain respect of your fellow yogis and teachers. Our rules might sacrifice individual needs on occasion, but have been created for the comfort of the larger group.
The Yoga Barn apologizes for any inconveniences that our Guidelines may cause you.
Yoga Barn Studio Guidelines:
- Class registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis and takes place in the Lower Reception. At this time, you cannot pre-pay or pre-book classes.
- Each class is 1 hour and 30 minutes duration, unless otherwise noted.
- Classes are mostly Open Level, unless labelled otherwise on the schedule (Look for notations: Level 1 (All Levels/Beginner), Level 1 and 2 (Intermediate) or Level 2 (Advanced). Classes fill up quickly, especially during the busy season. Registration opens 30 minutes before daytime classes and 1 hour before for evening classes (those starting at 7:30pm or 8pm).
- Ecstatic Dance and Sunday Dance are our most popular classes and have special registration rules, see here.
- Yoga mats & props are provided, but feel free to bring your own.
- Each Studio/Class has a Maximum Number of participants allowed in the room, once registration hits that maximum the class is considered full. There are NO EXCEPTIONS, we will not squeeze another person in the room, it becomes uncomfortable for the group as a whole.
- Classes Entrance is closed 10 minutes after the scheduled start time. Exception: Yoga Nidra class is closed for registration and entry 5 minutes after the class start.
- For daily classes, Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to join classes, there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule unless otherwise stated on the schedule as ‘Child Friendly’. Sunday’s Ecstatic Dance and Kirtan are family friendly, so come one, come all!
- With the exception of the Yoga Barn Menagerie, no pets are allowed in classes.
- Practice Patience and Kindness at the Registration Desk. Have Respect for The Yoga Barn staff and understand how hard it is to manage hundreds of Yogis trying to get into class on time. Everyone is doing their best.
- Dress Appropriately for class and for walking in the streets of Ubud. Remember you are in Bali, a slightly more conservative Hindu culture that prefers modesty in the form of covered elbows, shoulders and thighs. This applies to both men and women. We have changing rooms for this purpose.
- Be Punctual. Come 15 minutes before class and settle into the room quietly, it is a sanctuary for the duration of your class.
If you are late but there is space available, you can register and enter a class up to 10 minutes after the published class start time. Exception: Yoga Nidra class is closed for registration and entry 5 minutes after the class start.
- Respect the teacher and your neighbors, please practice as instructed by the teacher and do not practice your own series during class.
- Consider your neighbors on the mat next to you and make sure that you are fresh and clean and not wearing cologne or perfume. Many people can not handle strong scents, so naturally clean and fresh is best. Showers are located on site and towels are available for rent.
- Absolutely NO SELFIES or PHOTOS during class! Please turn off your cell phone or at least put it on silent before the first OM.
- Observe SILENCE during class and especially during Savasana, where you integrate all you have absorbed during class.
- Clean up your space at the end of class. Pick up your props and mats and put in the designated areas as instructed by the teacher if not obvious.
- If exiting early, please do so just before Savasana, not during. Figure out the best way to leave your space silently. If you have no other option, leave your mat and props where they are (do not open the cabinets) and quietly leave with respect to the group.
- Practice GRATITUDE. Whether you enjoyed the class you took or felt it was not your style, please know that The Yoga Barn staff and faculty gives 100% of themselves to provide you with the best experience possible. Many years of personal study has prepared our faculty to teach, and hours of prep goes into each class taught. There is a teacher for everybody and we hope that the Yoga Barn provided you with what you need for now. We appreciate any class feedback you want to share here.
