Living in Buleleng in the north of Bali, you quickly realize that the tourist boom in the south hasn’t quite made it to the north of Bali. Of course, this is great for people looking for a quiet place to stay or live, but there are not a lot of opportunities for the local population to find work or start a business.

So, it was good to hear the news that the Bali-India Foundation is planning to build Asia’s largest yoga center in Buleleng regency in North Bali.

The center will be built on 1.5 hectares of land near the village of Sukasada.

“The yoga center will be fully dedicated to social activities and the local community’s well-being,” said Dr. Somvir, an Indian professor who lectures in cultural studies and tourism at Bali’s Udayana University
